Pretty practical combos, not too flashy, but very reliable. you didn't use any really cool shine combo's but thats just how i like to do things with fox. pretty solid combos though. The marth one at the end was more the other guy being ********, but impressive none the less.

I have no illusions about my place on the smash food chain, I definitely need to speed up my Fox. Right now my main focus is on trying to be unpredicatable in my movement and to hit my L-cancels. Are there any other area where you think I could speed up my game?

its hard to say because this is just a combo vid, if you were to upload some matches we could somewhat see what your playin style is, until you get some matches up the only thing i can say is that besides the shinininin stuff, your fox seems more of an unorthodoxed fox rather then technical, but like i said upload some matches Sir

Pretty good man. Not the most elite in the world but a formidible style and very fast on on your toes a lot. lots of dashdancing, neutral jab opening I think this video shows a nice repetroir of mindgames/combos.

I dont see how you can shine your opponents so much though, thats an abnormal ammount of shining (at times) for a ssbm match so I guess I question your opponents DI as is the case with all combo video :)

In any case, I liked it, 2 thumbs up :)

No offense but your combo video is a joke; it barely even passes for a combo video since there are very few actual combos. It just looks like you recorded a bunch of matches and then compiled all of the clips of you doing decent (in your own mind) into one mediocre hodge-podge of a collage that fails to live up to fox vids that came out years before it...

well it was good some combos in there were original, but reliable but most of it were just a bunch of shine spikes and waveshines,but thats ok another thing that made me laugh was the falco could`ve dodged some of those combos if he teched but he didnt lol but it was pretty good

Pretty decent fox, all things considered. Though, if all of your marth combos are as laughable as the one you included, don't do a marth video. Please.

You're not Lunin, but you aren't exactly terrible either. I'll have to go with Dylan and a few others: You play a very solid Fox. Speed him up just a tad bit and you'll be good to go.

I do have to say that you are a freakin' sniper when it comes to shinespiking; that poor Ganondorf at 1:14 didn't even stand a freakin' chance.

Good stuff, CIFP.

Thanks to people that gave some advice. This video was not meant to be a Holy Grail for Fox players. I understand this video is not going to be enjoyable for everyone. A lot of people on this site are much better than me and of course they are going to find this video boring. On the other hand there are plenty of people on this site who are around or below my skill level and will probably enjoy this video. I plan on making a few more videos, and don't worry, the Marth clip at the end will not be in them.

My mental understanding of the game is well beyond my finger abilities. When I play, I know what I'm doing wrong, because it's the obvious things like missing L-cancels, hitting the wrong buttons. By showing myself when I do what I'm trying to do, and getting feedback, I'm hoping to improve my mental understanding of my game. Obviously no one else can help me with the finger skills, i just need to practice. I will load a match on here sometime though.
