Hey M@V. Question I forgot to ask last time. Brawl, Sonic, Homing Attack under the stage. Stalling or no? This has been a subject of debate over on the metagame boards since like 2008 and was wondering what your policy on it was.

EDITed for horrible Engrish.

Its really hard to pull off unless the other player's a moron tbh, but if you call me or someone I designate as a ref over, and they are doing it for a long *** time(I'd say a minute +),I'll call them out on it

Talk to Ally if you can; I know he's looking to come if he can find a ride.

Tbh, on most stages you can beat it by simply moving near the ledges on each side. Will make him extremely vulnerable.

Dude, did you know if you jumped HIGH enough/ roll/ spotdodge it doesn't let Sonic 'AIM' at you which means he'll go down instead of hitting the wall.

The more you know!

Also yes Keitaro, I will be in NJ during that time, can I be hitching a ride with you before I go compete in the Europe Land of Fromage.

Please tell me you are trolling.

Elsewise, why does the #2 Brawl player in North America not know that this doesn't work? (Yeah, you're trolling.)

In any case, should you show up I'll be glad to demonstrate.

Videos it is, then. *off to youtube*

No vid yet, but tenki confirmed it back in 2k9: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?p=6291275
Also note the title of Tier List v4: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=266820 (DMG and SL84 confirm in-thread if you care to search)

Still can't find vids :urg:

The point is, a Sonic doing it correctly should rise up during the charge animation and if the HA is released while Sonic is already touching the ceiling, he immediately bounces no matter what the opponent is doing.

No, Shugo/Ally. Going high enough/rolling/spotdodging/airdoging does NOT send Sonic downward if he's already hugging the bottom of a solid (can't jump through it) platform and does Homing Attack.

If I'm below Final Destination, and using HA on the "ceiling" there, nothing you do outside of hitting me (which only stops it if the Sonic doesn't tech), or me willingly stopping, will stop it.

EDIT: found it. Also while I'm still at penn state,where I have access to photoshop, I might try to make an official banner for this tourney. ^_^

Exactly. Too dangerous to use against Snake or Meta Knight.

It's not really even a good stall tactic against most of the cast. It's only REALLY good on Final Destination anyways.

For Falco:

1) Drop down
2) Laser
3) Double Jump
4) UpB to ledge snap
5) Repeat steps 1-4 until percentage lead renders HA Abuse null and void.

However, Falco is one of those rare, unfortunate few that can't do a thing about it if Sonic has the stock lead.

It's a shame it's banned. It can't even really be considered stalling to begin with.

I hope to see Flying Eagle (Berserker swordsman) here. I must get revenge for him knocking me out of the tourney in losers brax lul
He's going to be interning in Rochester this summer so I don't know if he will have time. How it worked last time was he came back with me from state college(He goes to PSU too) for a few days, then went home for break.
