So MaNgO... what do you think about the dying Melee scene...
I personally am saddened...
just when I started to get good at this game and get into the tournament scene....
it just died down.... pretty depressing if you ask me...

Sorry MaNg0, but I've been playing my brothers Falcon a lot recently.... tell me if I get anything wrong (I would like to learn too)

watch out for the Knee
if he grabs, he can always knee you from the dthrow, but if you DI out it's harder, and if you DI in and he predicts out he will also miss, so switch it up

you wont be staying on the ground much, so stomp isn't too much of a problem as long as you tech it

You can duck his grab -> rest if ur fast

His Knee can combo you, so it hurts... watch out for uairs and bairs too

Utilt-> rest works well, and since his tech is pretty terrible you can tech chase rest on platforms really easy too
it's also reallly easy to gimp him... bthrow off stage down smash down smash down smash

You can grab the edge and ledge hop rest when he's recovering :)

thanks dudutsai. The friend of mine who plays cf does a pretty good job of mixing up his recovery. I've rested him after he does his up b before, but when I miss... I die :(. The funny thing is, he always picks final destination. I was having trouble, so I said "let's see if you win on yoshi's story..." and sure enough, like mango said in his original post, he had nowhere to run. The only place he really has free reign is on fd. he just dashes and dances and dash dances around and jumps with that knee, then, if it misses, runs away. and my puff just floats after him. I think I need to either camp and wait for him and then go really agressive, or follow him and avoid his grab and aerial him when he passes me.

Oh yeah, MaNgO. You said in the original post "Up Throw = COMBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS"
what kind of combos can be pulled off from up throw? I can u-air and even bair, but what combos are possible besides those obvious followups?

I have a question..

When edgegaurding vertical recoveries as Martha or Ganny is it safest to ledgedrop with an Nair or Fair to trade hits (for stagespiking/send them away from the stage)?

Doesn't seem like a good idea to follow them under the stage in certain situations because they both have pretty offensive capabilities off the edge if given enough space

For arguments sake, I'm thinking an FoD scenario

I think it'll be best to do either bair or fair, and if they are able to up-b on you, just have the tech against the stage ready.

For marth if he has saved his jump you may want to just wait it out and roll up -> fsmash

If you go down with a fair or bair even fastfalling, he may be fast enough to jump fair you and then recover. Ganondorf is really simple he probably won't attack if he's below the edge. Just gimp his up b

i like d-air too. its kinda underated but it has good priority and you can usually follow it up with a fair. thats just my opinion tho. otherwise fairs are always reliable

Godheads:

If they are recovering while rubbing against the stage (to sweetspot) you can do a reverse fair, but TIME it right!

What I mean is fair, but float towards them with the last frames of the f-air.

In doing so, they will not be able to tech off the stage.

keep doing this and you will perform
