I had the pleasure of playing Iori this weekend at RSB1, which I too switched to Ike and clutched out the 3-0 after he beat me the first two.
You played pretty solid imo just need to mix up your QD options a little more. I think every time you were at Frame advantage for a QD you would go for a grab which it looked like your oppoenent caught on to it.I was nervous druing game 1 which caused excessive fsmashes. Any advice would be welcome.
Sup boys, been a while. Could use some in depth critiques of my set with a local sheik main that gave me some trouble at my last monthly. Really disappointed in my play; any advice with regards to what tools I should be abusing more in neutral and how to handle approaching/defending appropriately vs sheik in general would be appreciated (please ignore game 3)
It hurt me to see that comeback from Tink but stuff like that happens. Your combo game and tech skill is solid as hell but the punish game is what seems to needed the work. I counted about 4 possible punishes you could've done that would've ended the game earlier in the first one.Winners Semis of a local tourney. I think I played pretty well but still looking for some critique.
feat. commentary by Big D lol
Thanks, will keep this in mind for my next tournament.It hurt me to see that comeback from Tink but stuff like that happens. Your combo game and tech skill is solid as hell but the punish game is what seems to needed the work. I counted about 4 possible punishes you could've done that would've ended the game earlier in the first one.
Also your own brain can be your biggest problem. When you were hot you were hot but when you lost your momentum you started going autopilot it looked like (doing things that usually work, not what you needed to do at the time).
Try to read your opponent more and react to their game as opposed to just the fun feeling of moving your hands all fast like, you can get much more damage that way.
Hey there! I'll just split up my comments into the characters you fought.Hi everyone. I recently, in the past month or so, managed to beat some relatively notable players in my city. Here are some sets at our weekly that I won on stream, but I know I'm doing a bunch of thins wrong.
He's a decent Falco main, but not our best, so I consider my victory over him to be my first step to mastering the Falco matchup. I've also never lost to Peach in tournament, but our resident Peach player bodies me consistently, so I obviously don't really know the matchup.
Tieske is the closest thing we have to an MK main, but he's really a melee Marth player. After this set he just goes Sheik against me (and wins), but at least I made him scared of the match up. Can someone tell me why game 2 was so awful? I was obviously doing some things wrong.
I have no idea how to deal with Sheik. I'm dead every single time I get hit offstage, so I've tried focusing on fighting for stage position in this matchup, but that's only helped a little bit. Any tips would be appreciated.
These videos are pretty recent, so they're fairly representative of my current level of Ike play. All feedback is appreciated.
You probably want to either put the banana in a situation where it will put Diddy in a bad position, if he goes for it, he will lose stage control, or use it against him so he will trip on it or he goes for it and you punish him. You can also use it to stuff out his approaches.Played my first Diddy and to my luck it would be SS | Luck lmao. I did take one game though but it felt like I could've done better. One thing I know now though, don't try to use Diddy's own banana unless he's in Ike's pressure range, I ate alot of damage from banana stuff. Anyways, here's the vid.
