Seemed fine when I used him. Like always, Marth's strengths and weaknesses have swapped around and so has the game around him. He lost shit, gained other shit, and is still good.

The same shit happened in Brawl, and he was still high tier.

He will never be as good as he was in melee.

Your mains don't suck. You suck.

I've beaten just about every character, both human and CPU-controlled (at the highest difficulty) as Jigglypuff.

>>254450126
Kirby still has approach problems. Even looking back at the Invitational Finals, HBox wasn't able to close the gap between him and Zero without the laser whip interfering.

He's no doubt better than he was in Brawl, but I doubt Kirby will ever be as good as he was in 64.

>The same shit happened in Brawl, and he was still high tier.

Still nowhere near the character he used to be. The fact that a Marth never won a single major tournament in Brawl says enough about it.
>>
>>254449454
Jiggly Puff is top tier you fucking faggot
>>
>>254450427
Isn't that a universal problem, though? So relative to the other characters he shouldn't suck any more than before. And aren't people saying they reduced the landing lag since E3 based on the Robin trailer?

But she seems worse. There's no way her whole sword is tip-strength, it's got to be a bit weaker.
>>
>>254450728
No, certain characters have it more than others. Lucina's was very akin to Roy's in Melee, Marth's is even slower than it was in Brawl based on the BestBuy demo.
>>
>>254450728
No, the Landing lag was picked and chosen for each move for each character. Every move marth has has extreme landing lag no matter how well you time it.

An entire sword is generally stronger than the tip of a sword.

Not to mention the differences in frames, and the fact that Sakurai went to enough trouble to actually make her own character because of the different ways they use Falchion says a lot. She could be faster, but weaker. She could be exactly the same. She could be faster and stronger, etc. Way too many variables right now, especially if the competitive scene decides it wants to adopt custom movesets (Which I'm sure they will).

That gameplay against the lvl9 fox looks so boring

>>254452094

Lag seems to be a universal thing. The game could really use a reduction in it across the board. Outside of that the game is looking solid. The only other issue I have is characters are living a bit too long
>>
Samus sucks?
>>
>>254452508
Mostly because the Marth guy was trying to grab Fox, but the CPU knows better than to get grabbed.

On the plus side, Marth's Counter scales pretty nicely.

>>254452537
I don't disagree with the lag thing, Lucina seems to be the only character not really effected by it, but you can only tell so much from trailers. Lucina has some very good landing cancels, and seems to be slightly faster than Marth, but not by much.

The issue with characters living too long is probably whats going to cause people go to back to Melee for EVO. I like Melee, but I would rather see something fresh honestly, trying to see them adapt more to how it is now, with all the new characters, get some variety in there at least.

But it is what it is, it wont detract from my enjoyment out of it.

He won't patch it post-release. Brawl had more glitches than Melee and it still didn't get any patches.

>>254454897
They definitely CAN patch it, but we don't know if they will.

As for DLC, Sakurai's only comment was that he wouldn't start considering it until the game was out, then they'd decided whether or not to do it.
>>
>>254454897
Maybe they'll patch it if there are any gigantic issues but I don't think they'll do like regular fighting games where every few months they change up the particulars of a shit ton of moves.

How do you know they won't? Do you have a quote from Sakurai saying they won't? They've been doing more internet stuff so I think it's a lot more likely that SSB4 would get balance patches, at least for the WiiU version
>>
>>254454897
SSB4 can have patches. I don't expect it to be balance patches. I'm not really expecting patches at all unless it's a big game breaking bug.

Sakurai said he isn't exactly against DLC(went on to say he liked Fallout 3's dlc), so who knows. He did say that he isn't really going to think about it until after the game is finished.

I wouldn't want them to do a bunch of DLC but I would be totally okay with an inkling as a DLC character. It's a potentially big new Nintendo IP and the timing of it was obviously such that it wouldn't have been able to be considered for Smash 4 when that began development.

She can't transform into Sheik anymore, which was her best move as it made her not Zelda

>>254455535
Nintendo doesn't patch their games unless something game-breaking made it through their bug testing. I don't think Sakurai is the type who cares enough about the tourney scene to rebalance the game after its release, especially since it will take more than a year for the meta to properly develop.

Yeah, that's what I based most of my post on. It was too new to be in consideration, but they could consider for DLC. And as great as W101 is, it's not a Nintendo-developed foray into a new genre for them. Splatoon really does have the chops to be a new staple IP for the company.

I don't think he means online. Like, you haven't played with the latest patch, but you go to your friend's house and he's been practicing with the latest patch for a week.

i think he meant the 3ds version, which it would be a problem with if some kid isnt allowed to use the internet or something like that

Balancing for 4 player matches is retarded because it's near impossible to balance

There are too many variables and factors to account for there are almost limitless amounts of potential multiplayer matchups that you would have to account for in order to have it balanced, same with trying to balance for items (which favor fast characters)

Think about how many people you would have to get together with equal skill with specific charcters to test each one and the amount of testing you would have to do before tweaking.

You balance for 1 v 1 and then just accept that multiplayer cannot be balanced but hopefully if a character is on equal footing in a 1v1 setting they should be able to manage in a FFA or Team game.

The only thing that I can see that could be broken for multiplayer are charge attacks, since in a multiplayer match you can probaly sneak away to charge your attack up while during 1v1's you have to knock an opponent far away or kill them before you could charge up a samus blast or a dk punch

Haha, holy shit. Are you going to say he doesn't know how to balance because after a few matches we can confirm that Bowser is a lot better than he used to be as well?

Irrational Sakurai haters will always jump through some mental loop to shit on him. The Meta Knight situation is the only instance where something went incredibly wrong with balancing.

Or you could possibly stop being retarded for a fraction of a second and realize that just because something isn't a serious game doesn't mean it should be broken and imbalanced. If it's to the point where people start complaining when someone picks Fox or Metaknight regardless of the level of play, that's when you have a problem.

In reality no game is to be taken seriously either way unless you're making a substantial amount of money from it, but you still have people taking multiple games "seriously" and "practicing" in them even though there is realistically no payoff at all. To say a game should be an unbalanced mess just because "it's a party game" shows how ignorant you are about both game design and human psychology.

No. The point is, you can't have 100% balance unless every character plays exactly the same. It's a very difficult balancing act trying to make sure all characters, under all circumstances, especially in fucking smash bros, are usable and fair.

This. There was a fucking Pikachu of all characters in top 8 this year. Even if it were only 10 - 12 characters being viable in Melee, it's a heck of a lot better than the 5 you see dominating almost the entire roster in Brawl.

Makes sense although if that was the case I don't know why we have the

"have you ever made a game?" quote when someone offered to help test the game. Obviously he wasn't talking about programming sakurai, just pushing the characters to the upper limits so that you can see what may need to be changed so we don't get another meta knight. it was funny though
>>
>>254460327
what's funny is the fact that fox and falco are really good on accident (who the fuck would have thought that letting them jump out of their shine is a good idea back before everyone knew about the shit they can pull with that attack) and marth is as high as he is because of the fact that he happens to counter fox and falco well. The only predictably overpowered character in melee would be sheik because she has ridiculously low lag on attacks and really good grab game

Fast characters dominate comp smash because of the melee mentality. 4's mechanics are favoring neutral speed though. The difference is similar to Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 4. Offense has it's place, but now defense does too.
>>
>>254460874
>Aside from not being able to transform into Zelda, Sheik feels a lot like she did in Melee with a twinge of her Brawl self, plus some new toys. Overall, the landing lag on her aerials felt like the least out of everyone’s. Her movement was very fluid and her combos were plentiful–definitely a favorite of mine.
>Forward air: This is one of the least significant changes that I’m bothering to list, but the strong forward air is back! Kind of. The move comes out INSTANTLY, faster than ever before, and the front tip has a strong hitbox. It’s not as powerful as it is in Melee, but it’s no joke. Other parts of the move are much weaker, but it has little landing lag and can be used in combos very effectively.
>Up air: This move is no longer one strong kick upwards–it’s a spinning kick like Samus’s and Greninja’s, with a strong kick that sends opponents flying at the end.
>Neutral B: Shooting needles from the air no longer has lag upon landing, just like in Melee. This is one of the most significant improvements/restorations Sheik could have possibly received! Now Needle Storm is a much more potent move–you can use it while falling to lock your opponents in their shield, then follow up with a grab or another attack.
>Side B: Sheik’s chain now has Burst Grenades attached to the end. Releasing B makes Sheik pull the pin, causing the grenade to explode. There’s a suction effect that drags opponents in, making them easier to hit. Again, a vast improvement over her old lackluster chain, and looking like a really good move. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to test whether this move would tether the edge like it does Brawl or not.
>Down B: Rather than transforming, Sheik now leaps through the air like Zero Suit Samus with her new down B, the Bouncing Fish. Making contact with this move causes her to jump again, away from her target. This vastly improves Sheik’s ability to get back to the stage once knocked off.
>>
>>254460874
I'd be surprised if it isn't more than 10 she can chaingrab semi-floaty characters and the fastfallers get fucked anyways because of jab reset or tech chasing
add on guaranteed flow chart combos that include simple attacks like tilts and aerials (that get autocancelled really fucking easily) give her decent killing options both on the ground and in the air and you have a good fucking character that can still compete with something as ridiculous as fox

Actually, it was the removal of hitstun that killed him. His game plan is all about following up, which wasn't possible in Brawl unless you were Meta Knight. Smash 4 has a lot more potential for follow ups. We need to see some Falcon gameplay before we say anything.

I have a question for you "competitive smash" lol players. You guys bitched about time-outs and general match length from Brawl's slower campy playstyle. However, you guys also used fucking retarded rules for the game. 8 minutes on the clock per match? Four fucking stocks? You have no right to complain about campy playstyles when your matches have 4 fucking times the time limit of literally all other competitive fighters and when you have twice as many lives as any round in another fighter. So why the fuck are you complaining about the alleged removal of "offensive play" and making the game campy when you have such completely retarded rules that support defensive play?

Fighting games aren't MOBAs, people don't just "decide" how to play a game through mob mentality. The options and tools people are given are what decides the game, if it rewards nothing but offense you get brute force, if it rewards defense you get endless camping until one party is able to punish for a mistake.

What you essentially want at this point, is instead of the "MvC2 Magneto" you want the "MvC2 Storm" run out the timer tactic. Ike isn't left unpicked because "melee mentality" anyone who believes that has no fucking clue what they're talking about. In a game with already limited mobility, and animations that can leave you open through lag, why would someone pick a character that has EVEN more of these? It's really not that difficult to figure out if you actually PLAY the games.

You seem to think the matchups aren't as bad because you probably see "mid tier" characters topping at tourneys. Realize that you also have to factor in matchups, where people are in pools, how good other people are with matchups etc. Just because you see a 3 - 7 working out for the lower tier character doesn't mean it's suddenly equal. Otherwise Pikachu and Yoshi would be high tier in melee now. Also see >>254463041

Fucking why? It has no reason. If reduced landing lag was necessary, just reduce it. Don't make it a fucking input. And it doesn't even NEED to be reduced. Lots of other games have plenty of landing lag from aerial attacks. Just depends on how it works with the rest of the mechanics.

I'm going to assume you aren't trolling so I'll give you an honest response. First off, Smash isn't a traditional fighter, stop comparing that timer to Smash's timer, it's fucking dumb. Secondly, people didn't hate Brawl because it's matches took longer, they hated the game because it punished all forms offense (among other reasons). Smash's rules are fluid, if people felt there was a problem, they'd adjust. Melee used to be five stocks, it was cut to four. Brawl was cut to three. PM is having a debate about whether it should be 4 or 3.

I'm curious as to why you think Brawl's overly defensive gameplay has anything to do with the Melee's ruleset. Melee can be played fast. Hell, even Brawl can be played fast. Was your first introduction to competitive Smash a Hungrybox vs Armada set?

You're a fucking idiot for passing a judgement like that from literally seeing NOTHING of Falcon's play. Especially when the game isn't even out. Especially about the topics that are MOST likely to change. Especially by trying to compare it to a past game as if that's the only way it can be done.

>>254463940
You mean no approach at all is still dominant. Approaching and offensive play needs all the help it can get. Air play will always beat ground play because you're spending the majority of your time in the air, whether that is being launched off, trying to recover, chasing someone down. Reducing aerial landing lag is an easy way to make approaching safer and help offensive playstyles in general. You don't even need to map it to a button, just cut it across the board.

>and the fact that Sakurai went to enough trouble to actually make her own character because of the different ways they use Falchion says a lot

I still think this is a sort of bullshit thing for Sakurai to say. Marth doesn't ever appear in Awakening anyway, so there's no way to compare how Lucina and Marth use Falchion. Sure, you could argue that Marth appears in the DLCs, but he uses Lucina's model in those.

Hell, the fact that Lucina uses Marth's animations in Smash is makes the whole "they fight differently" thing even more dubious.
>>
>>254464001
None of that meant anything. Just because it's not a "traditional fighter", whatever the fuck that means, doesn't mean an overlong timer or overlong rounds in general have a place. Games like Vampire and SF are both games you'd consider "traditional" but couldn't be further apart from each other. Yet they use the same timer. What about series like MvC? Or shit, what about Tekken? Short rounds are a staple of the genre.

So people who played the demo. What did you guys think so far from your impressions that you played.

For me, the 3DS version felt really amazing and I was surprised how smooth it ran.

For the Wii U, I went Wii fit trainer and marth. I played with my sis and 2 random guys and my sister beat the crap out of all of us and won two matches in a row.
>>
>>254464750
So what you want Smash to be played with a 99 second timer? Because that shit ain't happening. If you're angry at Smash taking too much time at your pressure FGC events go complain to your TOs.
>>
>>254464447
>Air play will always beat ground play
Because you want to think of the game like Melee, where aerials had a functional role the same as ground moves. Some characters like Falcon literally rely on almost nothing BUT aerials. People need to realize it's gonna be a different type of game than melee, and that that is not a bad thing inherently.
>>
>>254464120

I agree that it's way too early to judge like that, but I have no hope for Sakurai's team to make the right choices with character balance. Brawl traumatized me, so blame my autistic judgement on that.

The reason you don't understand it is because you don't understand how any metagame works. Unless a game is INCREDIBLY unbalanced or everyone has essentially the same moves / tools, there's no way that at a high level more than half of the roster will still be viable. You're talking about physics making a large portion unplayable but what you want is a game where 80% of the cast is viable which is fucking impossible because you'd have to balance way too much between different match types, and different amounts of players.

Not only that but the "less offensive" installment of Smash had even LESS of the cast usable than the previous, people are just stuck on Fox-Only memes so they don't notice anything that isn't Yoshi or a character in the ABSOLUTE bottom tiers. Certain games center around certain mechanics, and characters or weapons that use those mechanics well are the "strong characters" you can't just magically have every character in the roster balanced at the exact level, and if you do then you'll most likely have JUST one or two that end up being broken or advantagous, best case scenario you end up with a bland roster that don't feel unique to each other at all.

Long story short, even if the new SSB was PERFECTLY in between melee and brawl, or make it a mix of rush-downs and turtling like you propose, it's not going to magically open up the roster and make everyone top tier, eventually there will be characters who can do both the best, or do the most important one the best, and they'll be the ones who are "valid".
>>
>>254463790
The fact that she has her mask as a taunt is at least a good sign that some of her animations are unique.
At the VERY LEAST, she should have different taunts, victory animations, and custom moves.
>>
>>254464918
And this little comment meant even less. You're not even attempting to argue the case for the longer rounds. I know the answer already; you only do it because that is what has always been done in Melee's past. Melee fans abhor any kind of change at all for some reason.

4 stocks balances the game between rewarding a player for being ahead and the possibility of a comeback. 8 minutes gives the game enough time to develop even in a slow matchup while letting the players play in a style they want, while still giving the game an upward time limit.

And yes, we do it because that's the way it's always been done. Because it works.
>>
>>254464795
I really liked what I had seen so far. I can tell you right now that Melee fans will bitch about it though, because punishment is a lot more prominent, and you can't just fly all over the fucking place throwing aerials out. The increased hitstun is sweet though and I think that it's all the game needs, really. It'll get shit from the old hardcore Melee fans though for not having the same meta development though.

I never thought I'd have an actual "mage" to play as in SSB, the closest I had was Ness and Zelda. But Ness never really felt like a mage too much even in his own game, that was more of Paula's thing. But when I saw there's a character that uses tomes I was fucking ecstatic, I can't wait to try him out.

Oh! I didn't notice that, thanks
I would welcome an increased recovery on missles as long as they were buffed to compensate. I know no one likes to be on the other side of the Morrigan Soul Fist stuff but Brawl's missles were just awful. It was only a reliable KO at like 200% or something stupid like that.
Screw attack as a finisher sounds pretty rad for combos. I've seen in one of the Directs that her up-smash also has some kill potential now which is exciting for me.
I'll miss that sex kick, though. But I guess as long as I still have that back air I'll be happy. The heels are too real.

honestly a 6 minute time limit with 4 stocks sounds pretty reasonable to me
While we're comparing time limits we should consider the fact that in melee 1 game is equivalent to 1 set of Best of 3 games in street fighter
If you add up the seconds that leads a max tiem of 5 minutes for SF. Arguably melee is a bit slower simply because it is much easier to run around an opponent in it (consider the fact that characters have double jumps and the fact that unlike SF in melee characters aren't constantly facing each other; if you get knocked off the stage you need to spend time trying to get back. some characters especially samus tend to be kind of slow during this part of the game).
So considering that a 6 minute time limit sounds reasonable and should not affect any matchups other than the slowest ones
Honestly nobody really cares because this current time limit works just fine, people don't often time each other out and timing someone out and winning by percent is generally considered a pretty lame way to win (at least in melee, certainly when playing friendlies)
tl;dr version: melee has a few differences that make it a bit campier than a game like SSF, a 6 minute time limit might be worth looking into but nobody really cares beacuse people rarely get timed out anyways

>Aim-able Falcon Punch. Can be aimed up, down when in the air, front and back plus can be turned around QUICKLY.
This is the most realistic one.

>Can save your double jump for AFTER you use your Up B move. Optional: Side B does not leave helpless when in the air and can be followed up by a jump and/or Up B.
Also slightly possible, maybe?

Nah. All that'l happen is eventually there will be certain custom moves that will be banned completely. Just like there will always be certain stages that are banned completely from competitive play.

I can see them embracing custom moves, something that could make a lower tier character into something much stronger or fit in with someone's playstyle better.

I mean realistically, they won't be THAT much stronger and it has the potential to shake up some match ups that are normally fucking tough to deal with.

The main question would be would they allow you to see what the other person's special moves are and let you change yours at will, or if you have to have them set up before going into the match so there isn't any 'counter picking' specials going on.

Marth being a top competitive pick mainly stems from when Fox was the go to pick for many situations. Against space animals Marth can WRECK them, and when they were the main characters played with the occasional dabbling in a few other characters (Not like that now a days of course. You have a bit of a varied lineup now as people are STILL discovering hidden potential in characters)
>>
>>254470295

Considering there is already counter-picking stages, it would be tough to consider to be completely honest. Because it could give the loser some really strong power.

Plus on top of that what if someone wants to switch characters game 2, does the other guy just turn around and look away from the screen?
>>
>>254470485
>Because it could give the loser some really strong power.

like I said they would do it like normaly tournament rules
the loser chooses the stage then the winner selects his character (add move selection to this part) then the loser can select his counterpick

You can change all of the specials, not just one of them.

And again this is just dependent on WHAT they do. They could be miniscule in difference or it could do some crazy change that could change a fight quite a bit.

Well anon. He won't be coming back, but Project M's lifeline will really, really depend on how well Smash 4 hits home with the competitive community. PM has already been embraced and is shown alongside Melee constantly.

If Smash 4 becomes a success then you'll see a lot of people move there, at least for a good year or 2 at least. If it isn't embraced competitively within a fairly short time frame then Project M will continue to be embraced, with a competitive scene being small on Smash 4 and surviving for a few years. Brawl still manages to survive competitively, with a very, very small amount of people. Hell N64 still has a scene, albeit a very tiny one.

Or perhaps a slower wind up that causes a trip, or one that reflects projectiles and even shoots out a fireball, but it doesn't rotate people the other direction. Or the glide I mentioned.

The system has potential to really change up things and still make sense with the character. It's just hard to tell exactly how much things will change.

Hell I'm excited to see what the falcon punch can change into.

I couldn't care less to be honest. It's ironic that playing his own game made me hate him even more.

He didn't just come back. He came back from the depths. And to have to have a brief taste of a worthwhile moveset before he disappears is far more painful

Boy, the RNG really hates you, doesn't it

>>254473549

Well, I suppose that makes sense. Just hope P:M sticks, I gotta admit I like his changes. That Nair lasts forever and I love it.
>>
>>254473082
Why even bother getting excited? The competitive community's already banned that shit. And for good reason, too.
Lord knows it'll be unfair to expect a fireball but get a fire orb instead, completely fucking up your approach and leaving you at a disadvantage.
>>
>>254473804

Again it just depends on Smash 4's success. And even if it does succeed P:M is still going to have a scene for a while.

You didn't seriously expect that to influence anything did you, anon?

Anon why would you say such a terrible thing?

Kirby is still good, dumbass.

>>254473976

Unless you know of the other player's specials before going into the match proper.

And where has it been said that it's already been banned? No rules have already been established for a game that's not out yet anon.

Sometimes instead of taunting after a kill I just jump straight up and Nair. He looks like a little fire tornado

>>254474062
No I didn't expect it to change anything with the development of Smash 4. But I do hold out hope that >>254473985 is right and that PM may stick, even if on for a short while
>>
>>254473985

I honestly hope Smash 4 does well, but I've also grown too attached to one character. No one else feels as good to play for me.

>>254474127

I just want to play a Roy that doesn't get completely wrecked by crouch cancel and 0-death chaingrabs.

Yep they nerfed zelda even more!!

I'm in the same boat op, gonna hope they still buff him a little

This man fucking knows.
God I love fighting for my friends.

Also, can someone explain why competitive matches even utilize time limits? Doesn't that make it too easy to stall until the end and win through cheap tactics?

Who cares? I already love our purple kush muscle wizard as it is, he just needs to be faster and not the slow and weak turd that was Brawl Ganon.
