People still play Brawl?? :D

Just a few friendly pointers, try watching your landings more and staying out of his range when doing so, Yoshi's mobility>Snake's x1000, but make sure to keep in mind his range. (>_>) Just try not to be above Snake in the air at any time really.
Don't forget that you can snag Snake out of his cypher with a dash grab, and if you don't pummel he's got no recovery, save for his C4. (He shouldn't be recovering close to the edge for this reason.) And don't forget your eggs when he's offstage, he's a huge flying target :]

Beautiful pivot grab at 1:25 by the way!:estatic:
2:18 Would've been great to see an Uair finisher on that rising Dair



Once again, it's great to see Brawl Yoshi once more. Keep it up! :)

I really enjoyed watching your Yoshi, Oz.

It looks like you have a lot of good mixups there and that you have a farily good grasp on fighting Snake. For any character that has long projectiles, imo the most important thing to do is grab them. Yeah, I know Yoshi's grabs aren't exactly shock worthy, but they are when you realize Yoshi is the only character with an air grab with even further range than his standing or pivot grab. Might I add, best in the game too? But I say that not to necessarily put damage on them; but to put them in a rewarding position to you, that will lead to even further rewarding positions and follow-ups.

The Dair was pretty sexeh, but when you falling Dair like that, be sure to use it a bit sooner so that the move will autocancel when you land and you can follow up with a jab -> down B or whatever combo it is that you'd like to do.

With Yoshi's air speed (albeit, I'm still working on this habit myself), you can get away from most situations. What I mean is that, when you get hit, RUN AWAY! (preferably to/towards the farthest ledge. Yoshi is hard to catch in the air, so if you see them chasing after you, you can B-reverse Egg Lay to catch them off guard and have a safe landing. If you space it really well, you'll even wind up with the Egg Lay Fake, where then the next setup is your's, but shouldn't be relied upon heavily.

Hope this helps mayun and keep up the good work.
That goes for all the other Yoshi's too. :)

Won $40 today for 2nd in doubles at a local scrub-con, but I've noticed I've developed a bad habit of unnecessarily B-reversing into my opponents attacks when trying to mixup my landings sometimes, it's just me trying to get a positional advantage but mis-timing it. Anyone else have full-on derp moments like these? :s

Hey, sorry I can't remember you but I think I remember seeing you around here. I've been good thank you :D
It's okay, the important thing is I remember you, ha ha.

I have this problem as well, I find myself being punished frequently for b-reversing in unecessary moments.

Bwett still plays in Dallas still.
Silent Beast shall forever be the silent one, but he's alive.
think Burntsockz only pop up once or twice a few months in the Yoshi skype group
Lil B pretty much doesn't come anymore but think he popped up last year?
Shiri still here
Not sure on macman nor meta.

Otherwise the one person who actually posts is Silent beast, and since he lives up to his name only a few posts a few months.

Had no idea Bwett even stramed smash4, thought it was just Denti since he goes around everywhere for tournaments since sponsored and has the japanese version of the game.

Edit: Short version of Japanese is censored, weird.

Does:

Macman: Doesn't
Shiri: Pops in every now and then, but done smashwise
Lil B: Doesn't. Only popped in because he got off perma-ban (I think)
Burntsockz: More focused on Tennis. Doesn't really post. Just checks once in a blue moon
Silent Beast: His name is what it stands for. Still posts to correct or to confirm someone's thoughts on his whereabouts (which is impossible to do because of his name lol)
Metatitan: Doesn't post here. Might post for smash 4 since Yoshi can jump out of shield.
Bwett: What earlier posts said. I don't keep up with this guy.

Still post here? I used to play Brawl. I don't remember many of you. :[

I thought so. Only a few people know of Mmac, and I'm already in communication with most of those. How you been? The days changed a lot even during Brawl when you and Mmac had disappeared.

Busy. x.x

I've taken more of a back-burner approach to smash while trying to get my life set for myself. Only recently (since March) started playing again seriously (but with PM). Other than that, I tend to keep connections with most peeps here and on facebook.

We still play Brawl over here. And, liek, most of South America. Only difference, on my side, having been logging in nowhere as much as I used to. I take a more apathetic approach at playing lately...and do significantly better, as well.
