We can discuss preferred stages I guess. How do you strike against top tiers?
Here is my preferred stage list
I'm starting to think that FoD might be a better stage vs fox than DL and maybe BF. Although FoD is small as ****, I'm a bigger fan of the platform formation than DL. The side platforms on FoD can lower to create a pseudo FD. Also, DL's side platforms are at the perfect height to **** with my cargo uthrow uair combos on fox. I'm really not a fan of them. The ceiling on FoD is higher than on BF and the side blast zones are closer. Both of these are more beneficial to DK than to fox, since Fox kills up and DK kills to the side vs fox.
I think there is some potential for creative combos on FoD. It might be a good stage for us. Also, where do you guys put PS in your ranking? I think its the 2nd best stage for DK. I'm a big fan of that neutral platform formation. and some of those other formations (grass and mountain) allow for some pseudo FD shenanigans.
I'd like to hear what you guys like more vs falco, BF or DL? I like the platform formation on BF a lot more than DL, but the blastzones and stage size of DL are much better for DK.
Also, my two favorite stages to play against falco are PS and FD. I'm actually not sure which one is better for us. Falco can camp harder on FD and his combos are easier to pull off there (as are ours
). I'm just a really big fan of PS I guess.
5. DL? YS?
I have very little experience in this matchup. I don't know if platforms are beneficial or not, or how well she can pressure DK on YS. I'd like to hear what your opinion is.
For counterpick, I go PS.
I'm pretty lost at what to pick against sheik game 1. She can be a major ***** on FD and I'm not sure how well DK does on DL vs her. Somebody enlighten me.
(I go PS vs her for counterpick though)
I don't feel like stages are that much of a factor in this matchup. Just ban yoshi's and you are good to go.
Not a fan of platforms vs peach. Also, she has some really good pressure on small stages like YS. I feel really suffocated playing against her on yoshi's. DL actually isn't too bad since she as hard of a time killing you as you do her.
Falcons hate FoD, and we can't really kill them up anyways, so I feel like this would be a good stage for us. In fact, if they ban FD, I might take them to FoD over PS.
That's all for now I guess. I'd like to hear what you guys think. Enlighten me!
