    You forgot to mention a Marth combo video (Redemption) and a ROB combo video (forgot the name), but otherwise, it was a good post.

    Oh I see what you did there! Oh my! Wasn't that witty! I came into this thread thinking it was another spam fest but... but you know. You tricked me. No one has ever done that before to prove a point!

    Your good. Isn't he good?





    Me being a jerk aside people ought to really watch these and shut the heck up.

    These are not true combos. In a true combo, you hit your opponent several times before their hitstun wears off. This almost never happens in brawl.

    This strikes me as something you have to work more towards.

    This was clever too. Making fun of his jokes with jokes you stole from Family Guy? -_- Pathetic.

    I disagree. A combo should be any series of attacks without response from the opponent--which is far more impressive. If you're beating the snot out of someone simply because you're actually better than them, and not because you managed to land the first hit and keep them unable to respond, I think that's a **** good combo.

    ^^A combo is defined as a sting of hits which is unescapable after the first hit.

    That is not possible in brawl because your opponent can actually respond.

    Therefore combos do not exist in brawl.

    However, you can trick your opponent into taking repeated hits, but eventually they'll figure out that they can just airdodge with almost no consequences. Seriously, why don't more people do that. Do they enjoy taking a beating or do they just not realize that airdodging is amazing in brawl?

    Yes, airdodging is godly in Brawl. Although you can't direct it, the ability to now do multiple ones or do something else after you airdodge is very useful.

    Sorry, but as an attacker, you can also predict that as well, and adapt.

    Um, not to be rude but you just contradicted yourself.

    If you, the attacker, have to predict/adapt to a response, then that means there is a response to adapt to, which by your own definition (and everyone else's) means it is not a combo.

    There are no combo videos of Brawl.

    Only Gameplay videos.

    ITT we argue over the semantics of the word 'combo'.
