I'm sorry, why was my thread about competitive Smash deleted?

Is that not about video games? Did I actually break a rule or does that janitor just have a bias?

And here I was trying to be informative.

Oh well, general competitive smash thread, I suppose.

Recently /v/ has this thing with mods/janitors where if someone shits up the thread/start posting offtopic stuff, the janitor/mod will delete the whole thread instead of the single post to save themselves time.
It's pretty lazy.

Look at any thread where someone started posting pics of unteralterbach (like pic related, which the mods also have a very unfair biased against) and you'll see the whole thread deleted instead of just that post.

More like "GIT GUD, but only in this very specific, arbitrary ruleset that favors some characters in a way the game isn't balanced around."

And before you go "BUH BUH RANDOM IS ANTI-COMPETITIVE", tell me, how much bigger is the competitive Melee scene in comparison to the competitive Poker scene?

It wasn't exactly a spectacle of phenomenal tech skill, Silent Wolf just dropped the ball and got dominated, but it was pretty exciting. It shows how crazy the scales can tip in Melee if you let them at a high level play and give your opponent any momentum.

Being retarded for taking the bait aside, can you provide a ruleset that favors all characters equally? I can only think of some minor variations that would possibly help lower tiers, and that is arguable.

>>254257305

I actually stopped playing until a couple of weeks ago when I picked up project M so I wouldn't be rusty when Smash 4 comes out. It's funny, but most melee players aren't super great at Brawl and visa versa.

Who was your buddy? Would I know him?
>>
>>254257713
Yeah. Silent Wolf is known for his techskill... not so much his reads or anything else. Being good at the game is more than just having the techskill, though techskill gives you options. Interesting dynamic.
>>
>>254257662
Not him, but anyone who happens to play at a decent level from getting better, even if they didn't go out of their way is instantly a tourneyfag, and anyone who doesn't ban themselves from ALL top tier characters, while also picking random is a tourneyfag.

Faggots will cry about anything to justify gaps between themselves and other players, anyone who is worse than them is a n00b, and anyone better is a neckbeard with no life. If you aren't practically throwing matches you're a tryhard, and in no other game or fanbase does logic like this occur.
>>
>>254258126

Learn to SHUFFL first, it's the most important. L-canceling being the most important part.

The best way to get better is to lose a bunch to people better than you and figure out why you're getting beat
>>
>>254257976
Pretty sure there is a scene there, but I am unsure how active SWF is for the PAL region. Try hitting up smashboards.com and their regional zone. They may be able to point you in the right direction.

As for the rest, if there are any specific gameplay or technical questions you have, I'm more than happy to answer them. Weary vet here, I understand the inner workings of the game pretty well.

It can set up edgeguards if you use it slightly off the stage .
You can also carry CPU's away with it all the way to the blastzone.
It never kills

You've probably heard of him. Gnes the diddy main is a really good friend of mine.

>>254258349
I agree with this, though how you practice is super important. Get 3 sets of ice climbers on the stage and practice hitting different amounts of them at a time. That changes the timing of when you have to hit L/R and forces you to learn correctly. Also being able to tell when you miss an L-cancel I guess is a skill I take for granted now. You should be able to immediately know when you drop one.

Practicing wavelanding onto platforms is also super fucking important.
>>
>>254258473
I hope you're not being serious, but samus' downb is great for positioning yourself as well as stall when getting back on stage.

>>254258635
You can actually do this yourself if you mash the control stick quick enough. It probably won't be the max length slide though.

I don't like competitive smash because I'm shit at it basically. I kind of like watching people who are good at it though. I just don't want to play against other people who are good. When me and some other friends who are shit at smash its alot more fun than someone dominating us constantly.

It's doing the inputs in succession. It's easy to short hop, it's easy to JC a shine. Doing them over and over is hard as fuck unless you claw.

Haha yeah. I used to team with him before I got sick of Brawl and he started teaming with Razer. I went back to Melee. Pensive about Smash 4 but I have reservations. We will see.

Its great way to filter out people though, gotta admit. Its obvious to anyone who plays when someone is full of shit. Easy to play, hard to master.

>>
>>254259376
Harass. That is a long matchup that depends on Puff getting into a zone right outside of her fsmash/tilt range and throwing aerials to bair her doing something so you can get pokes in. You can't directly challenge shit, but giving samus breathing room means missles. Also beware because trading hits ends up in her favor.

I suggest looking up vids of Hbox vs Plup since they are two amazing players that play(and team) all the time. Take notes on what Hbox throws out and what he doesn't and how he gets kills.

Because Smash threads are similar to the FGC-style threads and fighting games, assuming you wanted to get better, were always about community. You'd get to know people through the game, and people on different sides of the world, or different coasts shared tactics. The Smash community on the other hand has anti-social aggressive people that have no sense of community and love to promote spiteful behavior. There's no reason for them to care about anyone else because as long as they get what THEY want out of the game, they don't care what happens.

Oddly though people on here say that those people are just "meleefags" and make up less than 10% of the Smash community. What I find the most though are people who just want their dream roster in the game, and want to shoot down anyone else's suggestions that they don't like. It's near impossible to have actual discussion of Smash in the day time without tons of shitposting.

Yea I guess you could do it that way. Me and my friend used to play melee way back in high school, go to tournaments and stuff. I remember we were talking about melee in some sort of computer class, and some nerdy guy was like "oh you guys play smash? I love smash I've won a few tournaments." I immediately invite the guy over. That day after school, we both 4 (was was worse than my friend so i played him first) stock him. "so you won some tournaments eh?" I don't even remember that guys answer. He didn't have the balls to attempt to talk to us again after that.
I think looking back on it I might feel sorta bad for the guy now.

Na nigga chill. I mean the people that are (most likely pretending) but shitpost in all SSB4 threads with obligatory "LOL Project M Smash 4 is dead" posts. Not the people who will mention it and instantly get attacked for no reason whatsoever, which happens even MORE frequently. I don't like Project M because it feels like a MUGEN to me, there's something that makes it feel like it lacks polish, but I'm down with discussion of the game, or listening to what people have to say.

A perfect example is when the Light Suit was shown and someone, most likely just a Metroid fan mentioned being disappointed it was just a palette swap and referenced it being closer to the design on PM. He was IMMEDIATELY met with the usual overly defense "meleefag!" bullshit and you can probably imagine the rest. There's a difference, but people don't even bother to try and slow down to see it.

You aren't going to be able to play a "full aggro" Peach. She is a character about trades and controlling space to pressure opponents. Hell, when it comes down to it only like the spaces can go in balls deep and you gotta be a step above your opponents to get away with that. When not in bracket work on only counter-attacking, not initiating. Work on baiting and controlling space instead of going all the way in. Let people run into your fairs or nairs instead of you getting their shields. Starting there will help you a lot.

It's both of their fault, but for different reasons.

Janitors in general are just retarded. I don't need to go into detail about this.
Mods are too lazy. How it's supposed to work is that janitors will submit ban requests, which mods will look at and decide whether it's justified or the janitor is just an idiot. However, since they don't want to work, they just approve every single request which comes their way. As a result, janitors have much more power than they're supposed to.

Not really
>some stages allow for certain characters to stall indefinitely
>stages with walls usually have some sort of exploitable infinite given to a couple characters
>walkoff stages inordinately benefit characters with chaingrabs or Fox's waveshine
There's some debate over stages like Mute City and Rainbow Floats which actually used to be legal but for the most part it's pretty easy to see why most stages are banned. It's not like people WANT to be limited to only five stages plus counterpick but in a play to win setting people will inevitably find a way to abuse the stage no matter how broken or unbalanced.

Play as your chosen character

It's not like SF4 where you learn on Ryu and then move on, everyone's stuff is different so you want to learn whoever you're going to play.

That said, if you're getting frustrated with wavedashing playing Luigi will give you a more obvious reward when you allllmost get it.
>>
>>254264269
You gotta let the character choose you. I'd suggest sticking with top 8ish characters and not picking Jiggs since she kind of allows you to fudge some of the fundamentals which will hurt you in the long run.

Does someone stick out to you?

Who you planning on maining competitively on New Smash /v/?

Who are you planning on shoving inside an Amiibo, train the fuck out of them and have Amiibo money matches with?
>>
>>254264269
Who do you want to be good with?
Thats usually who you should play.
Try different characters out to see the differences though.
Link is good for the beginnings of L-canceling and Luigi is good to start learning wavedashing.
Really you can use anyone.
>>
>>254264269
Play as whoever you like. Except maybe the bottom 5, they're generally shit in almost every way. It's better to learn the mechanics with a character you like than to just pick up a high tier straight away. I would recommend Mario to a new player though.
>>
>>254264474

Should probably throw matchup knowledge in there too.
>>
>>254264269
Anyone higher than Young Link is a good enough character to get good with. You're just going to need to choose one and stick with it.
>>
>>254263838
find local people, as usual everyone is 100x nicer in person

there's an extreme example here in the UK, look up Professor Pro on Smashboards. All he does is talk shit about and to people but if you talk to him at an event he's a cool guy. Really willing to teach new people as well

>>
>>254264514

I'm not saying this guy's advice is bad or shit

But it can be a lot of fun to be a low-tier hero in Smash too

So if you want to play a character who's not top 8, go for it. Whoever stands out to you.

>>254264474
'good' mechanics isn't just being able to wavedash

consistent SHFLL'd aerials, shield drops, invincible ledge dashes, ledgehops, use of OOS options

all of these are incredibly important
>>
>>254264658
I'm just saying having good mechanics doesn't make you good. Sure you can hit your wave dashes and l cancel all day. But you aren't necessarily a good player. I mean technically you could be blind and have good "mechanics"
>>
>>254264269
Pick a top tier character.

You can choose between Fox, Falco, Peach, Captain Falcon and Sheik.

Jigglypuff is a special case and Ice Climbers just teach you how to chaingrab people.

If you get the feel of Melee correctly, you can then move to mid tier characters like Pikachu and Dr. Mario.
>>
>>254264797
don't play level 9 CPUs, they're inhumanly reactive and playing them breeds bad habits

beat up a level 1 cpu of any character to get an idea of the weight
>>
>>254264797
Mario is the best of the three. Yoshi is hyper technical and not worth the effort. Young Link is probably the lowest I would dip in the tier list in terms of character selection from the start. It's easier to get the mechanics down with a good character and then become a low tier warrior.

But in the end you've gotta play who you want to play. Axe said in an interview that he only plays Pikachu because he feels right.
>>
>>254264960
Which is great, and you could do all of those and still be fucking trash.

>>254265040
i've been quite interested in peach, i may try her, most likely try sheik and the captain too
>>
>>254263527
Yeah I agree with you man. To be honest, I just hate the fact I can't mention liking anything not-Brawl even though I've played it a ton since it came out, and have probably played and enjoyed it with more people locally than the people who complain about "no fun allowed tourneyfags" I played Melee back when it was first released, then since I lost my copy I wasn't able to play it again until 2 years after Brawl. My unbiased opinion is that 64 is better as a party game, and Melee is better competitively, I haven't tried PM too much but I'd at LEAST give it a try if /v/ had tourneys or get togethers like the MK stuff.
>>
>>254264797
Mario's cool
Yoshi is hard
If you wanna play Y.Link, you better like running away and throwing stuff
>>
>>254264797
Y Link and Mario are okay characters to learn your fundamentals. Yoshi is a trip and you'd have to really want to do it. All of those characters will likely be frustrating to a mid-placing tournament player though. Bad matchups abound and you have to work really hard as YLink or Mario to beat a good player that uses Marth, Fox, Falco, Sheik, etc. Play who you want, but this is a warning depending on what your end goal is.
>>
>>254265197
Play Peach. She's fun as fuck.

>>254265119
will do thanks man, i noticed that they do pull some bullshit but then again i'm playing without wavedash and all that since i've never attempted them, will try tomorrow though it's too late right now

>>
>>254265189

You can try and train up one of your friends

Works sometimes though it seems like they drop it more often than not

There are probably other people near you who are interested, go to some events as a pot monster and get bodied and meet people.
>>
>>254264797
Young Link and Mario are pretty solid. Yoshi can be decent but is pretty intimidating for a new player to learn. I'd suggest Mario, he controls well and has decent kill potential. Young Link is kind of a campy playstyle to be effective.

I know
but the original points was that a Luigi player lost to a 'casual' player despite knowing how to wavedash

I was practicing against some level 9s with Falco and I noticed they would powershield half my lasers which basically nobody can actually do in real life, I still managed to beat them convincingly but I think a new player might get the wrong impression on how useful lasers are to approach in the neutral game. It's more important that you just learn the fundamentals of your character, most people DI differently than CPUs so extended combos might not work as well.

>>
>>254265908

Stuff will explode when Smash 4 comes out,

You could try hosting a tourney yourself around then, might lure in players from the bigger cities. If you've got dosh to spare you can sweeten the deal with a pot bonus.

I did this for Soul Calibur and while we don't have the biggest scene I at least have people to play with.

you need some tech as falcon
Haxdashing is kinda important at a high enough level

There's a mid level plateau where you can get carried by being technical with a spacie and getting up in bad people's faces
but when people actually learn the game and safe options etc then you can't rely on tech and you need to be actually semi decent
>>
>>254266215
Get a warm body to help you practice DI, since mostly it's going to be either holding in or away. Falcon does need tech. You need some pretty flawless turnarounds, gentleman, pivots really help, and platform control. Learn shield dropping if you haven't.

I see what you're saying but in practice I haven't really seen it be a problem

>>254265367
Level 9 CPUs generally have frame perfect timing. In that sense they're great for working on your own timing. They don't play like a real person would though, which is good and bad since a real person will be able to move better than them but will generally have worse timing and shit and other weaknesses.

But it also depends which character you're playing against as a CPU. I swear some of them are straight retarded and others are Gods. Captain Falcon seems to be absolutely inept, Fox is 100% solid, and then Dr Mario is a fucking wall.
>>
>>254266245

>>
>>254266817

It works like this:

Pot bonuses bring out big players who think they can win for sure and make extra dosh

Big name players confirming that they're coming brings out the randoms and pot monsters

A bunch of pot monster and randoms confirming they're coming brings out more big names for dat pot

It's kind of a game to manage it. You also can put up posters and stuff locally to bring in the I BEAT ALL MY FRIENDS SO CLEARLY I WILL WIN THIS MONEY crowd (I'm ashamed to say this is how I got into the scene).

Yeah. My combo ability is great, but I rely too much on catching the other person off guard. I've been trying to learn a lot more about teching hits, DI'ing, and guaranteed combos. Mainly due to the fact that I die mostly from gimps, and can't get solid kills after racking up percent.

Also, I know that practicing shffl'ing in 1.5x/2x speed can throw off your timing, but what about waveshines and drillshines?

I've been playing 64 for 15 years and just got a cheap Gamecube last week to play all them sweet Gamecube games I missed out on. Borrowed a friend's Melee the other day we used to play sometimes. Been trying out competitive Smash stuff and it's making me appreciate how skilled the dudes I watch on the competitive scene are to get characters to do what they want.

Seems like every character controls like a load of bricks, and the triggers to do things like tech and canceling on landing being analog screws me up so much being used to the clicking Z button of the 64 controller. Having to push that giant trigger in all the way fast enough to roll from shield, wavedash properly, tech on landing, it's feckin' hard.

>>254267862
That's what they said about Brawl. What "big names" continued with it after like a year? M2K and Larry?

>>254267814
Lovage uses Bowser set to max handicap so he doesn't go anywhere and Fox with the opposite. If you fuck up, Bowser will likely jab you and kill you.

>>254267783
JuggleGuy is also good, but he is a little less approachable imo because he is so data-driven.
>>
>>254267670
Mew2King will play it regardless, most other players will probably give it a shot for a few months to see if anything decent comes out of it. It probably won't have the lasting appeal of Melee but at least it won't be a slap in the face like Brawl.
>>
>>254267945
I think so.
I never played kirby but a buddy of mine did and he mentioned it a few times.
It was one of his reasons for dropping the character actually.

>>254267804
It was an additional movement option that allowed for more fluidity of motion and variety in combo options and mindgames and was incredibly satisfying to do.

pretty sure you can light press to tech and maybe l cancel
>>
>>254268047
If you hold down a trigger on the gamecube controller till it almost clicks when you turn on the console or plug in the controller it disables the soft press.
That way you can just always hold it down most of the way and click it when you want to shield.
You can't light shield this way though

People did not expect Brawl when Brawl was released. People now expect another Brawl to follow Brawl.

There's no true good starting point because outside of Mario/Doc and Fox/Falco nothing carries over from character to character, and even Fox and Falco have a shit ton of differences. Just play who you like to play.

Ice Climbers are gimmicky as hell and require a lot of skill but don't let that deter you. Just expect to hate Nana so much you toss controllers. The world needs more Ice Climber players.

>>
>>254269382
Items make the game less about beating up the other character with your unique attributes and more about running around and throwing things at them. It also reduces the list of viable characters from slightly over half the roster to about three. As for the stages, see >>254264382. These bans are necessary to variety by means of making more characters viable, not destroy it.
>>
>>254269495

>The world needs more Ice Climber players

Please, for my sanity, don't let there be more of them.

>>254269750
They aren't beginner friendly but they aren't expert friendly either. Just go in balls deep and don't look back.

So was cancelling attacks into each other in SF2. It still adds to the game.

I would prefer that they make L-canceling an option which you can toggle between manual and auto sort of like you do in racing games. Some attacks which have animations on landing are cool to have and also cool to be able to cancel when you gottagofast. I've just been Z-canceling in 64 for so long its like second nature and I'd like to see it in Smash 4 because it only adds to the game really.

The scenes were formed separately. There was hardly any renaming because these terms didn't exist in the vocabulary in the first place. Nobody said one day "let's call casuals 'friendlies'" or "let's call mirrors 'dittos'" just to be all different.

>>254268759
So Dota isn't competitive because tournaments use draft rather than all-pick, and no standard fighting game is competitive because every player adjusts the buttons on his fight stick rather than "playing on the game's level" with the default controls.

Well hurpeda derp my derp.

I would disagree with that last sentiment because DK could actually be great in 64 if you played him as primarily a grappler with dat backthrow and edge-guarded with the Giant Punch.

I'm completely indecisive about Smash 4. My main has always been Falcon. Melee spoiled me, and now I love to go fast when using Falcon. Brawl came out, and I was fucking pissed at what they did to him.

Smash 4 gives me two pieces of opposing evidence. Zero Suit looks to have a fast dash and attack speed and recovery from said attacks... then again, it all looks floaty anyway, and momentum can't carry into your jump.

And I'm scared of what Sakurai's team of dead monkeys in charge of balance will do to Falcon this time around. I don't want to play a game where Falcon and everyone else is gimped because Sakurai loves casuals so much. If it were some other reason, I could deal with it. I'm not sure if I wanna buy it or not because it shows potential but... eh, I just don't know.
>>
>>254271803

Smashboards has what you need

Wavedashing is jumping, then airdashing into the ground at a diagonal angle before the jump actually goes anywhere. It allows you to move while still retaining use of your tilts and jab, and lets some characters move faster than their dash. OP's gif is an example.

L-canceling is hitting L or R right as you hit the ground after an aerial attack; it reduces the landing lag immensely making aerials safer and easier to follow up after.

One of your friends is probably getting it, wait until they do then find out if you like it.

I mean, even if it's shit it'll probably be fun with friends

>>254272368
There is no tech skill with G&W.
Only 2 of his aerials can be l-canceled
>>
I can wavedash kinda consistantly (like 3/5 wavedash attempts will be successful) but I don't understand when I would need to wavedash?

Also I can't seem to shorthop/l-cancel during actual matches, cause my brain goes on autopilot. Is it just a matter of doing those all the time so that it just becomes natural?

>Is it just a matter of doing those all the time so that it just becomes natural?
Yes.

Which character do you play, I can tell you when you should be concerned about wavedasing.
>>
>>254272590
Well ain't that some shit. I don't want to play as anybody else though.
>>
>>254272641
Wavedashing is good for positioning.
SHFFLing is just practice.
Make a concious effort to do them in real matches
>>
>>254272641

Wavedash away and put a hitbox where your hurtbox was

Use it to close distance so your tilts will reach

Use it to close distance in combos/pressure situations

Yes, it's just doing it until it's second nature.
>>
>>254272641
It just helps with positioning your smashes/mindgames. You won't need it until you start hitting the semi-finals of tournaments.

And, yes.
>>
>>254272641
Yup. You'll start playing worse at first because you have to slow down to think about doing this shit, but the more you use it the better it will be. Think of wavedashing as a tool to use defensively. Also, depending on character it is often faster to dash->wavedash across the level rather than just dash. Need to get on the edge? Wavedash backwards. Downthrow someone and they land on the platform above you? Waveland on there and techchase them. Those are some immediate uses of wavedashing that may help you realize it's usefulness if you need playing.
>>
>>254272932
>You won't need it until you start hitting the semi-finals of tournaments.
What shit region are you from?
>>
>>254260335
You're friend is doing it wrong. To be good at smash, you gotta learn how to space correctly and and how to stop on a dime. Wavedashing is almost not needed. People think Luigi is the best pick to learn advance tricks when it's actually Marth.

>tfw trying to switch to button jumping in Melee after fifteen years of Smash64ing on stick jump

I wish there was a way to turn off stick jump in Melee.
>>
>>254272817
Just look up which ones can be l-canceled and learn those.
Other than that work on your neutral game and baiting punishes.
Maybe practice dashdancing too
Theres a reason nobody plays G&W at high level.
>>
>>254272641
The viability of wavedashing kind of depends on the character. For Luigi and the Ice Climbers it's the best and fastest way to move around and for any character with a decent wavedash doing one into a tilt or a downsmash is useful. If you're playing Peach the wavedashing is considerably less useful unless you're Armada. Also, it's incredibly useful for landing on platforms, returning to the stage from the ledge, or edgeguarding.

For melee I usually play Captain Falcon/Marth in tournaments. For P:M I usually go Wolf/Mario/Ganon

How come sometimes when I press Z I shield instead of grabbing? What is a tech chase? I know what tech is but not a tech chase? What is a light shield?
>>
>>254260335
Probably because wavedashing is one of the tools in you Smash Belt, not a primary movement mechanic.

I've used button jump forever. It's also why I can't use anything but a Gamecube controller nowadays, I can't claw with other controllers nearly as comfortably.
>>
>>254273349
You tried to grab too soon or had just hit L/R and brought up your lightshield. A techchase is following up someone who got knocked down (you are chasing their tech). A light shield is the lighter big shield you get by holding Z or pressing L/R gently.
>>
>>254273349
A tech chase is when you hit someone and they tech it but you chase after them and hit them again.
It's a mix up because they can tech left, right, or up.
Light shield is when you hold down the L button only a little bit and get the big translucent shield.
>>
>>254273349

Tech chase is chasing someone who's teching and keeping pressure on them. Light shield is not pressing the shield button all the way down, gives you a bigger but weaker shield
>>
>>254273331
What shit region in the US are you from? Any region with depth you're going to need to have some tech skill to get into top 16, even at locals.
>>
>>254273349
A light shield is a larger shield that decreases much slower than a typical shield, achieved by only slightly holding down the shield button, or by holding down z after a grab.

Tech chasing is just punishing the other guy for teching after hits.
>>
>>254272337
Sanic fags are still worse than smash/melee fanboys due to their obsession of a franchise that has produced nothing but failures over the past decade. Smash Bros is fun game to play with,it never gets tiresome, whether its 64, Melee, or Brawl.

I do admit though tourneyfags(especially the ones here on /v/) can be a bit annoying at times but most of the Smash community is pretty shill.

>How come sometimes when I press Z I shield instead of grabbing
You put up a light shield by holding Z, you actually do a grab before putting the shield up
>What is a tech chase
It's just being able to follow up on an opponent teching away after hitting the ground
>What is a light shield?
If you lightly press one of the shoulder buttons you get a weaker shield that covers more of your body and shrinks more slowly.

The opposite happened with me. I move to stick jumping in Melee and Brawl. Jumping and movement are so important to smash that I don't even trust my right hand to give me the immediate response I need.
>>

With how constrained the characters are by the engine and the game rewarding

>jump back

It doesn't look hopeful.

Momentum isn't even conserved when doing a running jump.

Just try shit until you find you're liking it.

I main Lucario and Ganondorf.

I mod this song into the game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uints81YYMc.


AND ITS FUCKING SLAMMING TIME

Hungrybox basically picked up Fox for the sole purpose of countering Armada's Young Link and you saw how well that turned out. Also Armada has basically dropped Fox.

The tourneyfag contingent is the least annoying part of the Smash fanbase on /v/. Everybody else is at each other's throats about characters and franchises and slots, all they want to do is play fun video games.

This thread right now is too chill. It doesn't even feel like a Smash thread.
>>
>>254273815
Tech is required, but minimal. It might just be me only maining falcon, but I've shit on a lot of foxes trying to get by with poor waveshines.

Southwest region. Decent amount of smash players, but not that much recognition.

But Anon, this is what a true smash thread is. Unlike the threads with the waifufags and other shit, the people in these threads actually play the games.
>>
>>254273839
Tourney fags have always been annoying, doesn't matter what game it is.

For me, I just play the game I like and that's the end of that. Unless it's narrative driven, I don't see the point of talking about the game mechanics or moves about something, especially of a fighting game. Smash is awesome but I don't see myself talking about L-Canceling, Wavedashing or any of that nothing. Seems too autistic and repetitive.
>>
>>254274439
Press A and B at the same time when you're hands are glowing.
You can press a with his other B moves too.
Use it to cancel out of up b and down b, or to do a more powerful side b.
>>
>>254274439

A+B when your hands are on fire
>>
So do I just need to tap Z instead of holding it to grab instead of lightshielding?
>>
>>254274703
Yes. You can also use R/L + A.
>>
>>254274609

Man you can enjoy Smash in any way you want and I'm fine with it

But I'm constantly amazed by how this is the only game where this attitude will fly on /v/
>>
>>254274838

This, I almost always grab with L+A unless I'm pivot grabbing
>>
>>254274848
It's things like this that confirm smash is a fighting game.
/v/ only acts this way about fighting games.

Isai should stick to SSB, in my opinion. He's really fucking good at it and it's entertaining to run, even if the game is kind of stupid.
>>
Brawl player who wants to git gud at Project M Mewtwo here

Wat do
>>
>>254274524
Given that the demo used the same engine as Brawl, one considered refined for the series by Sakurai, it's a long shot to believe the game will receive any major physics changes in three months.

If I'm wrong.

If players don't need to wait for dashstart to end, wait for the run cycle animation to start, then wait for the dashstop animation to stop before being able to do attacks other than the normal dash attack,

If characters' jumps follow a basic physics principle present in all platformers with a run function,

If there are even new; different; alternative, quick, and intuitive options to allow characters to move fluidly,

I'll eat my words. I'm not dropping three hundred bones for Brawl 2.0 anymore than I would for Melee 2.0. We already have those game.
>>
>>254275614
First learn melee.
Then look up how your character works on smashboards.
Have fun.
>>
>>254275728

I'm talking about the HOP BACK AND WHIP thing

If it was Brawl some powershielding would shut that shit down anyways, but no one had time to practice the timing

We'll see, either way I'll be playing it

That isn't even fucking new. Brawl worked the same way. It's buffering something after a dash. Smash community has this obsession with finding techs so that they get to name them.
