Given that you have no choice now, yeah.At this point, is it better to do the 2nd jab into other?
That's exactly why I am up this late.I... I might.. manage. At least we still have bombslides. This is a sad day for Link. One more nerf (bomblides gone) and I'd be done.
Yeah but look at that percentage. Mario should be dead if you can get Jab -> Jab -> Smash or Up Tilt, or even a Grab to Up Throw would end him.You're right. This was the fastest I could jab 1 now:
vs before the patch:
However jab 1 cancels might work at higher %s, maybe. I noticed in the first video^ that after several jab 1s Mario is flung out of it. We might still be able to get several jab 1s in at high %s.
Being a former Brawl Link main it took me a week or so to get use to single jab instead of double jab. I realized that had to be done because jab two gives just enough delay that some characters can shield the smash attack. In other cases it pushes them a bit too far for Up Smash or Up Tilt, especially if your opponent DIs right. This might not matter against some characters but this is a needless nerf on Link.^Even at high %s Mario was forced out of the jab cancel death combo but we can get several off it it might be good vs heavies like Bowser and Ganon.
Link seems to be able to 3 jab combo at the same speed so jab 1 has more end lag but transfers to jab 2 as fast as before. Jab2 cancels aren't that much worse than jab 1 cancels; we'll loose the death combo but can still jab1>jab2> cancel to Dsmash/Utilt etc.
I just combed dthrow into sidesmash at 0% with the cpu set to jump but that doesn't mean a whole lot.From what I can tell so far and thoughts.
4 Down Throw buffed (less knockback).
- Link grab combos?
that's a pretty major nerf for us in this MU. With the end-lag on that attack punishing it should be easier now.his Hylian shield now blocks Fox and falco's lasers (and probably the other previously unblockable attacks).
I wasn't receiving the update at first, but then I reset my Wii U and suddenly, it was downloading.This is going to be a silly question, but is this just for 3ds so far? I still haven't received an update for the wii-u; I'm just wondering if that's just because my internet is terrible.
Oh ok. Yep it's just my internet being derp then. Looks like I'll be useless for a while. May as well get some Jab cancel locks in while I'm waiting, just for old time's sake.I wasn't receiving the update at first, but then I reset my Wii U and suddenly, it was downloading.
adding to the fact that DDD's lock seems to be still in which is way better than Link anyway.I just want to say that I blame all the scrubs who called and keep calling the Jab cancel an infinite. It never was an infinite, and calling it that just spread misinformation which got us a completely undeserved, unneeded and possibly catastrophic nerf. Nintendo and Sakurai are our of touch morons, we know that, but it's also the fault of everyone who kept calling it a freaking infinite.
Also, this kinda confirms that Nintendo really has no idea what they're doing.
I assumed that much. I just want to know if now we can do it.old ones are incompatible and needs to be deleted.
Dude, this a character that did not need many nerfs, yet they gave him unwarranted nerfs instead of the only nerf he should have gotten which is the suctioning of Jab 1. This is the opposite of good for us.bomb forward tilt gone. Thank god for these nerfs. I was sick of seeing this character in every top 8
