So i've been playing Robin a hell of a lot. Of course a good amount against my fellow Link players and I'll give you some tips.Do you have any tips versus Robin ? This matchup is really really hard for me. His projectiles seems to have a huge hitbox and he gimp Link so easily ...
Sh arcfire is a big issue, it severely limits the few safe shield pressure options link has in sh fair and bair, however link must stay within or just outside of sh arcfire range in order to prevent Robin from charging arcthunder, since the final hit of it beats Hylian Shield. Thunder and elthunder both are canceled by Hylian shield. Robin struggles more than Link does in CQC, but we don't have rush down to continue that pressure, plus Robin cleanly beats us in air-to-air. Link really wants to fight Robin long range where Robin can't get followups off arcthunder. As an addition plus, staying at long range allows for Arcthunder to be prematurely activated by a bomb's hurtbox due to its slow acceleration.Good stuff everyone! Keep doing work!
What are your thoughts on the Robin MU after patches? IMO Link slightly wins because he can zone Robin well and has a better ground game. Robin has a good air game but Link can pivot, Zair and grab as an answer. Robin's good up close but imo Link can zone him well enough to still win. Both characters can be vulnerable offstage and have kill power.
I suppose I may elaborate on this a bit:The key during the projectile war is to make sure that Link keeps Robin in range of his projectiles, you never want to allow Robin to charge to Thoron since it beats everything that Link has and cannot be fully blocked using the Hylian shield.
