I am thrilled that Magus responds to us, but I have not once seen him respond to anything BUT defending Zelda's changelog or correcting misinformation. Though it does hint that he (and therefore maybe PMDT) might be listening, it is not very compelling evidence. I appreciate what he does, but it does not mean that it is satisfactory.
If you are pressured, that is not the time to use Dins. You are in a scenario where your opponent has wrestled stage control from you by never letting you place Dins in the first place, so it seems only appropriate that it be difficult for you to gain it back.@ 4tlas
I never said din's was bad, I just said that it needs a slight buff and zelda needs to be faster to control space better that she gets. Also when I refer to people shielding it. They just dashdance shield stop while I cast out the dins on reaction and then I'm left open to them coming into my with my dins coming back and I have to wait which is why I hate the falcon match up or any dash dancer really because they exploit the time it takes to cast out dins.
The whole placing it out when your under pressure doesn't work if you're already pressured. It has a set distance to go and if they are already in your face you're just stuck there with no stage control and you don't cast another dins cause that will leave you open.
Of course it's still a decent option to cover space when you have time. So I'd just like it to compliment her a little more and that would be nice.
Falcon is not too bad because it is easy to stuff approaches with jab -> dash grab -> 0-to-death. A properly played Falcon will start to maneuver around that, at which point you can use Farore's and Dins because he is respecting your space. Its all a mindgame.
I think making the manual explosion easier to hit with was a nice touch. Now if there were some way to tell that Dins is disconnected and offscreen but able to be recalled so I don't recall instead of casting it, that would be great. Also the camera suddenly zooming out to find Dins is more annoying than 3.5 Dins camera ever was.
