Let's try to revive this thread.

All I wanted to say was, to @ King of Hoboz King of Hoboz , I look forward to playing you at Shuffle man.
Oh, wow, you're in my pool. It's awesome to be able to personally meet these Ike players now a days. Meeting (or going to meet) Ally, Quincy, you, Metroid (come Smash'n'Splash) is really an eye opener. Also, being 3rd seeded is nice, I'm gaining some credit even though I haven't done too amazing in a bigger event yet results wise.

Is like every Ike from the West Coast. I'm from New York and I never see anyone of note at the events I attend.

We have 3 Ikes, I like to call the other two my squires. They aren't very good, but I train them when I'm on break from my journey to be the one true Ike.

Frakture is the only other Ike I know in my region. I'm not very active due to how far tourneys tend to be from me but a new venue is picking up PM and it less than 30 minutes from where I live so I'm excited for having access to regular practice and probably meeting some regular practice partners.

How do you guys combo spacies at around 45% when the chaingrab ends? I'm pretty much fully consistent with the chaingrab, but once they hit that percent I usually hit them with a Nair and they DI out and the combo ends, what do you guys do?

Try mixing up between up air and bair. Up air comboes better because it sends more vertically, and bair will kill if they try to DI away. Also, while the chaingrabs on Fox and Wolf last until 50%, the chaingrab on Falco lasts until 70%.

Yeah, I tested it in debug mode. Even at 70%, he is still in hitstun at grab height with no DI (no DI in this case means that he goes as high as possible).

I'm in Florida, there's like two other Ikes I've seen at regionals.

Also @ WhinoTheRhino WhinoTheRhino dash attack is definitely good as a combo finisher sometimes, most people don't expect it.

Played an Ike ditto money match at Bam 7 last weekend, $20 extra if you were able to land a down taunt kill on the last stock, last game.

I almost let him win, getting him up to 170%+ trying to get the taunt kill before I just had to finish him off outright. I'm disappointed :(

Also this tournament further convinced me that every single spacie I fight will ALWAYS backflip double jump away from me if I back throw them off stage, so I just Fair them everytime. It's really good for cleaning out those quick stocks. If they fall instead and Up B you can catch them with your Aether on the way back or Dair. I even got Mango with it in friendlies.

I've gotten a dair off spacies like this before.

Frankly though, they are the only characters I prefer to just stage onstage to edgeguard

If you hit them with anything but tipped NAir and they DI away, you should be able to follow-up with QD RAR BAir if they're at mid %s. At higher %s (~70s and 80s), you can also UThrow -> DACUS if they DI away.

Pointing it out so you don't get bopped lol.

SHing off the stage backwards might be the best option. You can cover their DJ easily with falling Bair or DJ Bair. If they stall then you can take ledge -> react. If they stall more you can refresh invincibility until they're forced to Firefox and then you can pick punish depending on the stage. If they insta DJ -> AD through you can ledgedash -> (DD ->) grab -> lol.

Edit - Anyone see any problems?

I should be off, I'm gonna try to make it to TO11

I've been implementing a lot of Smash 4 tech into my game and seeing some decent results, it's really easy to do an empty hop RAR to force a shield and then tomahawk it into a grab instead.

Also, late aerials as a crossup are really ****ing good and get you free grabs. Bair is the safer option but nair is also good if you time it properly.
