That's probably because you can't play him like you would in a 1v1, which I would assume is what they were doing. It just doesn't work that way. In fact, it's a completely different meta for Link.I don't want to burst any bubbles here, but Link is terrible in teams. Just ask any of the Link mains that have used him in actual tournaments and not scrub as **** FG.
Why are we even discussing FG teams then? They don't matter, especially when team attack is always on in a competitive environment. And why are you letting them abuse gale's wind boxes? Just grab them OoS or something.That's really brutal, I'm gonna have to try that. My edge game consists often of SH dairs when they're close, and when they're far I pull a bomb, run off the ledge, toss it up and recover, so that when they are coming back 50/50 they get hit by the bomb and I can follow up with a fair or trap them in an aerial SA. Sometimes if they're under me I'll run off the ledge, fall past them, and then backflip to bair/nair and stage spike them as they try to recover.
Yeah they would have killed each other if it had been on, but with it off they were able to cover one another's unsafe power moves and dominate, and my projectiles weren't much help because they were both great at perfect shields, so one would shield a projectile while the other charged past him and punished, and the windbox on my boomerang more often than not ended up being abused by them to charge smash attacks while being dragged back to me.
I also have a couple of things for us to seriously consider discussing, as they can be very useful for Link. @ Fox Is Openly Deceptive
#1: Slow running. I know Link doesn't have a very long skid stop animation to begin with, but it could make Dtilts, Dsmashes and non-pivot Ftilts and Fsmashes out of a run much more practical in neutral.
#2: Fast Fall break. Just watch the video.
#3: Hip Check. This could very well be amazing for Link, especially with the amount of use normal pivot Ftilts and Smash attacks already have.
#4: Ledge Denials. Just watch.
