Is it my imagination, or is shulk infinitely harder to play online due to the insane amounts of latency? As a sm4sh shulk main, I'm doing better with characters I've never touched before.

Absolutely! Any sort of lag in sm4sh could lead me to select the wrong art, I find it worse in ultimate, along with the silly buffering in this game causes a lot of unwanted moves. Sometimes I can't turnaround without dashing, sometimes I get the shorthop macro (I bleeding hate this mechanic) because of some sort of stutter. I have a LAN setup and sm4sh worked fine barring my opponents bad connection. Bad latency has always been his foe but it's far worse in a quicker game where your reaction time needs to be on point.
