What's the difference between a low level player and a mid level player? Also, how do you know which level you're on?

As winner of a match you have the right to change your character first as well as ban one stage. The loser chooses second as well as picks the next stage. This is because it gives the loser a slight advantage for a comeback. We used Evo rules, I only joined one tournament myself so far as well.Last night I went to my first tournament. While im a little salty about a few things, I mostly just want to learn. So, here are my questions:
1. If i win a match and the person who lost changes their character, am I allowed to change mine? Because the guy running it was my opponent and when he counter picked my character he went straight to stage selection. It being my first time, i didnt question it even though it was a terrible MU for me. That sent me to losers.
2. This question is more about characters and playstyles. I made it to losers semifinals which is where I ended up losing. I was on ike (my main) against. While i normally wouldnt mind that, i couldnt beat his playstyle. He would sit at the edge spamming projectiles until i was somewhat close. Then he would either shield and grab or spot dodge spam and grab. After doing a combo out of throw, he would just go back to the edge and continue with the shield/dodge grab.
While I dont like that playstyle, its perfectly valid and I'm not going to hate on him for doing it. That being said, idk how to beat that as Ike. His approach is too slow. So, how do i beat that playstyle as Ike? What should I be looking to do? What characters should I look at as secondaries to cover vs that playstyle?
Do you mean after the run ends or when you turn around? You can shield during a run to stop momentum. Jumping as well. But the best way to simply not slide is to utilize walking instead of running/dashing. Walking also allows you to have a lot of your attack options open.Hey, everyone! So I have played smash 4 since it came out, but one thing I never understood is how do top players move their character without causing their character to slide? I know that shieldiny is one way to avoid this, but can be unsafe if read, or also jumping. Are there any other methods to avoid my character from sliding?
That's weird. I must've just been listing nonsense. Disregard that comment.1ne Up
Its character specefic and I feel less important in sm4sh than other smash games but your trying to build muscle memory on techniques so you don't flub them in a match. Doing something in training mode is very different from doing it in a match setting so it can still be necessary to "lab" something even if you can do it 10/10 in training mode. I don't know jack about cloud as I don't even have him downloaded but heres a list of ideas if they apply to him. If its some sort of string or combo you wish to practice you should experiment vs different weights and fallspeeds.
- perfect pivots
- foxtrot dancing
- jab locks and setups
- footstool combos and setups
- true combos
- any other general or character specific tech you wish to apply to your gameplay
- ****ed something up in a match? Practice that.
- you should also have a good idea from which locations on different maps when your kill moves will kill.
Confused as you say "i cant get any better with MY character" then proceed to say you can't pick a main. Step 1: stick to a main obviously. Then maybe take your own advice from the other thread you replied to where someone literally asked the same question already.
Figured i'd try and restore some balance to this supposedly q&a thread as it appears to be all "q" and no "a".
Dsmash isn't really a good substitute for Ftilt (it's not necessarily a bad move, it just doesn't work as a replacement), and not being able to use any of the basic actions will greatly hinder you in tournament.hey noob here. I play on the 3ds so it is near impossible to do tilts. is mario's down smash a good substitute for his side tilt attack? Furthermore, do you think it is possible to win in tournaments without mastery of tilt/smash attacks?
If you want an answer from Marth mains, i'd recommend going to the Marth forum and ask there.My own question is for Marth mains. How often should you use Nair? I use it more than Fair personally
Mario, Kirby, Captain Falcon, Fox, Lucina, and/or Cloud.Which character is good to use when learning the fundamentals of the game?
