If you're out there,
Nancy,I really enjoyed fighting you.
I get Nintendo's weirdness about not wanting impressionable young children to exchange friend codes with a predator, but they could at least include some stock messages or some kind of way to communicate with someone in between rounds
I have played countless online games that allow you to add people after the match. Not once (other than in MMOs) have any of them bothered to play with me again unless I personally invite them AND write an essay on how great it'd be to have another great match.
Just a few minutes ago I had ten matches with 3 other players in For Fun and we all kept picking Toon Link, down taunting at the start and then fight. Shit was like Four Swords up in this bitch.
Anthony, if you read this, you are a bro.
Can't you take a screenshot of the bottom screen and post it on Miiverse? That way you can find people you played with. Of course the other one needs to check Miiverse, too, but if enough people start doing that regularly, that'll be the sureway to meet players.
Also it might give Nintendo a hint that we'd like the "add player" function
Why does nintendo even give a shit about "muh children"?
Sony doesn't, microsoft doesn't, online interaction is not rated by ESRB, if you let your children play online then you're a shit parent as it's your problem
Why is nintendo so beta?
Why can't Nintendo into online correctly?
I mean fuck, you should be able to atleast add people to some sort of friends list and invite them to games later on.
People will abuse it, sure. But this is not the future I envisioned.

>don't even have to deal with hatemail
>Why does nintendo even give a shit about "muh children"?
Because kids are like half their audience?
>Sony doesn't, microsoft doesn't
Because 99% of what they make is not intended to be played or seen by children in the first place and they make it a point for that to be known, even if kids buy CoD all the time. Nintendo makes games appropriate for everyone.
This is not hard to figure out.
>Why does the NFL even give a shit about football fans?
>Why does Ford even give a shit about people who drive cars?
>Why does Tylenol even care about people with colds?
Because kids buy their shit, genius.
Nintendo never fails to disappoint with their online capabilities. There's no good reason you shouldn't be able to directly communicate with your friends, or at least add people during play

Great matches, it's too bad they left afterwards.
It's so weird. Maybe it's because I spent 4 years in college playing Brawl with friends weekly, but Smash is such a social experience to me. Playing it with some nobody I can't interact with at all is just not nearly as fun.
I usually try a quick taunt as a "Nice kill" when I respawn. It's nice when someone seems to get the message and do the same, but that's barely anything.
Online is the one functionality where Nintendo's consistently shit the bed.
You could argue that the exchange is not having to pay for online, but they're missing a lot of basic functionalities. Really behind in that regard.
Although, again, free online. Maybe that's the tradeoff.
I miss the double deuce taunt. No more giving people the bird.

Xpitiful if you're here consider suicide, I haven't seen so much spaghetti dropped in an online match in my life
But does it make sense for them to purposefully withhold something that would benefit the game? I think Nintendo just don't know what they're doing with the online, or they're too worried about children seeing or reading foul language. No matter how I look at it, it just doesn't seem like a great move
>tfw you keep losing as Sanic and Diddy because they aren't simply epic Nintendo heroes like Sheik, Lucina, Malleo, etc. and kill moves are tricky as hell to pull off with them because lol3DScontrols

i doubt you will see this, but, AJ, i recommend suicidal actions immediately.
The new down taunt feels off, mainly because it feels like G&W is actually displaying any sign of emotion. I still like to use it sometimes though. The sheer disrespect of it is fantastic when someone fucks up a recover. Other times I'll use it in fast, intense makes to show fatigue from how tedious the match is. However, they seem to take it the other way and get mad and things get crazier.

Can someone tell me how to play ness?
PK fire is slow so it has to be used at a distance, but PK fire also doesn't ravel far enough. I keep hitting the tips of their toes. They can block it, dodge it, hop over it, and special shit it. When it does connect, they fall out of it before I get to grab. And some dbz punching characters like mac and greninja can punch me from inside of it. It doesn't phase bowser at all.
Do I have to aim for the ledge when recovering every single time?
How do I combo people in the air? They go too high and get out of it easily.
And for the love of fuck how do I safely get back on the ground after getting smashed up? Even if I dodge their attack on the way down, the landing lag gets me killed by the follow up.
Question: Why isn't Nintendo smart enough to come up with a system where children are protected with limited social functionality, but adults can get access to something useful?
I mean fuck, sell full-privileged accounts for $0.01 or something. Parental control the fuck out of it.
the metagame hasn't developed yet
No one can tell you how to play Ness
No one but you
Be the pinoneer that masters his matchups
Become the inspiration for Nessfags everywhere
>tfw I'm experiencing all these problems as well
Against scrubs, you can spam fire for spacing or when they stupidly rush you. Use the smashes to punish rollingfaggots. I also find that lots of players have trouble avoiding his basic running attacks stationary combos.
If you're playing against someone decent, I don't know. They'll never walk into your bat or your fire, and if you fuck up they'll punish you.

Fuck you buddy
No meta yet, but he's how i play, firstly PK fire is super handy in the air as it comes down on the angle, if they come towards you, jump backs and PK fire, use it more for defence and bring your offence upon it's success, maybe run in for a backthrow (the launch on Ness's BThrow is great)
when edge guarding, learn the distance and timing for a PK Flash, it has a great AoE hitbox for guarding, if they are a character which goes high, turn around and Bair (Back Air) the fuck out of them ... if they try to go a little floating, jump out their and Dair them, it's hard to time in this game, but is great when successful

I wish I could add friends from people I've played online.
I'd love to get friend codes of people lose to after the battle.
I'd be nice to practice against people who are good with characters I'm weak against.
Also, is this a good record?
I'm not exactly sure where I stand in skill level.
G-guys, should I change my Mii's nickname? I thought no one would see that shit and I don't know if people think I'm just some kid and underestimate me. People seem to get pretty pissed when I beat them.

Does pic related happen often in smash online play?
Thinking about picking it up but if people are just going to disconnect before the match ends I will pass. I am sick of it
Little Mac is my main.
What is your friend code?
I am guilty of suiciding my stocks, but it's not because of rage, it's usually because the match is so laggy that I want to end the match as fast as I can, and I don't want to be penalized for DCing the game.
Mario is great, so is Peach. The only really bad character from the franchise this time around seems to be Luigi.
But anyways, Peach is good. Her aerials are quite heavy hitters and her F-Smash is fucking godly, provided you hit someone with the tennis racket.
Anyone here that really looked forward to maining someone they just can't get into?
For me its Palutena, I wanted to main the shit out of her but I fucking can't. Sometimes I think she's to slow, or that her jab is really awkward. And I don't really like her tilts or her air game. Goddamn, I really want to main her but I just can't into her playstyle. She feels like a really defensive character.
It's crazy, during the first week I encountered several Greninja players, now after 150 1on1 I've met 0.
Also I found something pretty useful for Greninja, Shadow Sneak cancel all his ground lag.
So you can spam dair without worrying of getting punished for it.
>shrug if the foe accidentally kills themselves
I have to end matches when I kill myself and the opposing Kong does that. It's just the funniest damn thing and I can't concentrate.
Some annoying guy kept spamming dair into shadow sneak against me earlier in heavy lag. I thought Greninja was shit until I learned how good shadow sneak is as a kill move. Even better when you're on a dark stage and it's hard to see the shadow.

That would be neat. Both because there's some cool players (just fought a Puff using some air rollout cancel wizardry) and because I miss getting mail from salty MvC3 retards.

i laughed hard at the oddity of that match.
i have it saved but i don't have a way of recording save my phone.
I always switch to falcon if I find a good falcon player.
Also, do you guys taunt when you get a kill in 1v1? I understand why you wouldn't if your character has a storable charge but a lot of times people just don't taunt ever.
wario is too fucking good
i've been having a blast online with him along with luigi

I find it ironic the way of keeping tabs on people you would like to continue gaming with on a Nintendo system is called friend code, when in actuality it's the most terrible way to keep a list of friends as well as making friends.
I hate these friend codes. I swear to christ almighty if these aren't gone by the next system, I'm seriously never buying anything Nintendo related again.
>Playing as Mega Man like I would Mega Man
>Actually winning with an all right record
This feels weirdly good. Like, jumping while staying mobile at max buster range and poking them to stop them cold while throwing Metal Blades to stop them even colder. Occasionally using Crash Bombs then gaining ground when they keep their shield up.
When they get close, hit them with a Flame Sword for that precious hit stun, then either shoot some more. If you're feeling frisky, use the Slash Claw to knock them over.
Problem is is that Mega Man's kill moves are almost utter shit; Slash Claw's okay, but only the last hit of it actually KOs. Flame Burst is shit albeit fatal at low percents, and Spark Shock's okay if the enemy's silly enough to jump in on you while you're not jumping around. Charge Mega Buster is utter shit and shouldn't ever be used since it's so slow and more likely than not will be reflected back at you.
On the other hand, Mega Upper is the coolest shit to land but is terribly unsafe if you screw up. Air Shooter's great if the enemy thinks their dive-kick/Bowser Bomb/Hip Drop will pierce through it, but otherwise good DI makes it hard to land. Hard Knuckle is hard to connect with since only the very last part of the knuckle (when it's almost vanished) counts as a meteor smash.
I don't think people like fighting Mega Man, but I've never actually fought another good Mega Man; all of them usually sit still or even charge their buster. It's terrible.

This is my problem. I like Megaman just fine but they need to give him SOMETHING to kill with, I hope they plan on patches or something when the wiiU comes out.
>Start a match

>I start spamming my jab combo which is punching gloves

It's those little moments
You gotta learn how to shoot forward while jumping backwards to keep your distance. Slash Claw got a very shit hitbox if you're moving.
Even still, I dig this guy so much I can get past it. It feels so good when a dude air-dodges and lands right in front of me; this leads to a Mega Uppercut which can usually KO at 80%. Shit's so powerful. They usually get close by rolling too, so you can probably predict this and slab 'em hard with an Upper, too.
I like to think im good at Ness. Lean on his dash attacks and bat, and his aerials (aside from down), and grab grab grab. Ness' grabs are a solid 11%+ even without getting any smacks in. Tease and chase people with thunder if they try to kite you or avoid you, and don't be afraid to use fire defensively rather than offensively, but if you land it and can get in for the grab its worth a shot. I never bother with magnet or flash, they're too fucking slow now to even be REMOTELY useful. The yoyos are fine but leave you too open, i feel, also.
After playing classic mode from Mario, all the way down to Ness, I have formulated a opinion from my experiences. The problems I have with classic mode at least:
1. It honestly seems like the higher up in difficulty you go, the dumber your ally gets in team battles. Honestly, I would say you should just quit classic mode if you end up with your ally dead, and just you against the other team. They will be faggots, and just run around grabbing the items and double teaming you. I've beaten that situation a few times, but most of the time I die.
2. For some reason, metal characters in general can get kinda annoying, but only at first. I usually try to beat the crap out of them right from the start, but cause they don't flinch, they beat me down in response. After getting knocked away, they start collecting the items.
3. The fucking stage hazards I swear to god. There can be good combinations that work with the hazards, like 1v1 on magicant. But there can also be complete fucking bullshit matchups, like free for all on spirit train. At which point, I just run around avoiding everyone as I try to survive the train itself.
Honestly, it just feels like every match you should just be trying to collect the items and surviving off of that alone. Except for 1v1, which I am fine with all of the time. I really just wish that if I choose to quit classic mode, I should get none of my rewards up to that point, and get back the gold I bet in the first place.

Flash if your out there, thanks for teaching me some new tricks buddy.
I played as ganon online and it was better than sex. I didn't even spam wizard foot or anything.
I was just sort of winging it and mixing downb and side b with smashes and generally avoided any aerials.
Anyone know any ganon skills they could share? It was the most fun i've had in the game so far, I think.
I find my biggest issue was online, the input lag would occasionally turn my upsmash into his nuke kick, which is pretty much a death sentence. Was there something else to his side B I don't get? I was trying to find something to combo into after you drop them post-choke. I didnt know it overrode counters, thats amazing though.
>Playing team For Glory
>Teammate is a decent Little Mac, other team has a mean Wario, me and the other guy are rotating characters

Felt pretty good. Team For Glory can be a crapshoot if you have a shitty teammate or someone with a bad connection, but the good matches are great. In particular, projectile characters wordlessly synchronizing perfectly with rushdown characters is a beautiful sight.
Gannon's upsmash isn't too great anyways, his up air is more reliable. Down Smash is also good for roll spammers. Side b doesn't combo isn't much, but is still important. If you manage a stock lead as Ganon/are on the final stock for your opponent, you can always attempt Ganoncide. Tricky shit.

I found my Smash Brother and I'll never play with him again. Stay gold wherever you are, mate.
played a few games as him earlier
when my 3ds wasn't shitting packets i felt pretty expanded i tell you what
also it's fun to just tap out a single down+b when you have somebody pinned and they panic roll. nice and easy, no timing required.
Yeah I just felt the weird "choke and drop" thing looked odd, like there was a move you're naturally supposed to follow up with. But I like ganon.
What are some other gems people have found character wise? I like ness still, have every since 64, but I can't get into the "fast" tourney characters. Never really been a G&W fan, ROB also just never clicked, and olimar got crushed to near uselessness.
>yfw they get scared and start falling back on Counter
>yfw baiting them and punishing the shit out of them for it
>So you can spam dair without worrying of getting punished for it.
This is not really true. A lot of attack trade with dair and some straight out beat it. Your opponent can also just attack you while you appear from shadowsneak, or simply punish you after shielding the hit.
Still, it's better than being stuck in dair lag forever.
>Decide to play a match or two

They always drop their shield just as I'm about to hit them with the clown car, or try charging a beam right in the path of a mechakoopa.
I main Ludwig as well and I feel like it throws people off cause not a lot of people know what to do with the mecha koopas and a lot of people fall for the exploding clown car+the hammer you can do when you fall down for big damage
Dude from above who also just learned how to love ganon- lean on his side/down Bs, and use his dashes. Smashes you barely even need with how fucking hard all his other hits knock.
Santiago. I know you're out there faggot.
You're the first guy who's been as good as me playing Mario. It was a shitload of fun playing with you.
That Pac Man vs. Mario match was what dreams are made of.

Ninty stated several times they still want people to play in the same couch, not Online.
My group of friends and me love ninty because nowdays he stills makes local coop games for 4 or 5 players.
But yeah, I can't understand how a company that loves so much having friends doesn't let us make more.
In Glory, the only true assholes are Mac, ZSS, and the majority of Lucina players. The first two because they're broken and the latter because waifu counterfags can choke a dick.

I dont know if its just the fact that the Cap cant deal with ranged faggots as well as he could, but holy shit I completely dismantled everything he was doing to me earlier. Arcfire into Levin Sword Fair is really fucking nasty to get caught with. I need to work on gitting gud with Robin because that was fun as fuck.
Last night I lost several matches with a Little Mac guy, I walked all over his smashes and goofed hard.
Later, I got a guy who switched to Little Mac after two losses and rekt him hard after the asstearing fight the previous guy gave me.
Any good tips for Link vs Little Mac?? I've found arrows and bombs stops them or makes them pop a shield so you can dash attack them, but you have to be on edge all the time. Also, staying at the edge and grabbing works but Mac runs too fast.
Side B into down smash combos 90% of the time and can kill at decent percentage
Warlock punch has super armor. most people dont know this and will try to attack you out of it
his command grab (side B) is great against people with counters (like the millions of little macs)
Ganoncide edge guarders. you both lose a stock but they lose it first so you can win
Toon Link can be fucking scary. I fought one who was crazy good, used his aerial hookshot to drop bombs straight down while covering the space in front of him to stuff my approach. Had some awesome matches with him.
I've survived this long without buying into the hype of Smash 3DS as I already have the Wii U version pre-ordered but I don't think I can live 2 months like this while everyone else I know is playing the 3DS version and I'm just watching or playing on theirs... Would I regret buying the game now?
His aerials are his best approach options (bar dair). Short hop and rush the shit out of them with fair. Use b-air for poking people that chase you into the air. When that gets predictable, start using dash attack.
Opponents that like to run in on you, block em out with PK Fire > Down throw > Fair/PK thunder. Alternatively, shield grab. Alternatively, dash backward then pivot Forward SMASH. This is so good you have no idea. Alternatively, Block, then down Smash. They'll roll onto the yoyo (they always do) and get btfo
Once they begin to get flustered, mix up the throws (forward, back and up) and follow with a bazzilion PK thunders.
If you are getting juggled like a bitch, N-air. Its fast, and can be do twice in one short hop if your fast enough. Also, popping out PSI magnet in the air removes your momentum. Chasing opponents never see this coming and often drop what ever combo they were raping you with.
Lastly, learn to read. Once you notice patterns in your opponents movements, you can land PK Flash, Absorb with PSI Magnet and just straight forward smash heads. PSI magnet is great at a distance from Robin's and Megamen.
For real Lastly. Back throw if they are at hundred percent. Immediately begin the PK flash to scare them. Dash a little closer if you need to. Practise makes perfect (Never fully charge it unless you are sure). Use their fear of the pk flash to dash grab and back throw again.
Anyone who tells you pk flash is bad is a scrub

I liked him. He's probably mad at me though.
>play Shulk vs Doc
>the faggot spams literally nothing but pills for fucking ever to stack damage
>the nigger wouldnt even approach, just pills enough to fill a pharmacy
>I get close to him and he's actually skilled but just decided to be a shitbird about it
>eventually lose due to overwhelming anger
>decide to be a bigger faggot than he was and pull out Duh Cunt
>railroad the fucker with a barrage of smash attacks, cans, clay pigeons and gunmen
I seriously hope none of you go full faggot and just spam a single attack for days just because it limits approaching options. That shit is by far the most annoying thing conceivable.
Wanted to main them since initial reveal because they're my main in other games like Golf and Kart. I just cannot into puppet characters though. Sending Luma in battle pretty much never pays off because the opponent just moves 3 steps forward and Luma is punching air until I call it back. I've had to reduce it just to a charging attack.
>Tournyfag Link here
Bombs are your best friend, when he does that gay dash just blast him with your bombs. Make sure you are good at shielding too. Also the boomerang is op with arrows, dont be afraid to shield his running attack or gay jump and then grab him or uptilt. Also constantly dodge rolling and baraging with ranged to get his % up. If you are really good, or practice a bit, combine some ranged with the mast sword, your neutral combo , when landed is pretty fast and you can follow up with a boomerang or arrow.
Also once he is off stage throw the boomerang at him if he is close, and if he is far charge our arrows. Arrow gimping is really good this game, and just one or two arrows mid air stop him from recovering
I tried jumping into a Nair. Faggot would see any intent to approach, stop pillspam, block and then immediately grab into that aggrivating ultiltX3 or aerials and then continue popping pills.
He was a top faggot from start to finish.
Something like that.
What they should have done is what they did with pokemon x/y infrared and local battles
After fighting someone a few times you are given the option to add them to your friends list.
They should do that if you fight a player 5 or more times for example

Inherent flaw of gaming on consoles.
Kill all consoles.
