His moves aren't NEARLY as unsafe anymore. F-tilt can't be punished when spaced, not to mention the reward for actually landing a hit is even higher than before. His gimps are top 5 in this game.

Gonna list off the nerfs DK received to help explain his position.

Neutral B takes longer to charge
Neutral B has less range
Neutral B has a longer recovery
Up B has a longer landing lag
Up B lost invincibility
Up B lost its 2 frame startup hitbox behind his head
Side B no longer does anything to opponents hit in the air (used to spike)
Side B no longer stalls air momentum
Down B no longer reaches far enough behind DK to punish dodgerolls on certain characters(it hits more infront now)
Down tilt range was reduced
Forward Smash has a deadzone on his chest
Uptilt has a deadzone on his chest
Fair + Dair recovery is longer than most characters' tech recovery(making the moves punishable on a hit)
Dash attack is garbage
GRAB RANGE WAS REDUCED TO 1/4 OF THE ORIGINAL SIZE
Grab down throw can't be used to tech chase
Cargo Up can't be followed up from
Back air trajectory was made worse

Buffs:
Theres a new down b in air that can be used to style
new side b improved his ledge game in a game where ledge guarding doesn't exist (outside of shiek)
Dair is faster
DK has a lot more confidence and spends more time flexing mid animations
>>

>in a game where ledge guarding doesn't exist

This is what I hate most about smash4

Its like theres barely even a point to going after the opponent if they decide to recover low

I might as well just sit in the middle of the stage and play myself and give my opponent a courtesy minute to pick themselves up

It really kills the momentum of the game in my opinion
>>
Like other people have said, the eventhubs tier list (which this picture is based on) is an open poll where people can vote characters up or down freely. There's no expert opinion involved, it's just what a bunch of randoms happen to think.

If you actually play the game some of the inconsistencies in the list are ridiculous. Donkey Kong isn't amazing but he's not literally bottom-of-the-barrel garbage. Certainly not worse than Ganondorf. ROB is certainly not that low and Shulk is probably not that high.

It's not completely inaccurate but people spout every new tier list as gospel anyway.
>>
>>267684313
Up B gained 1 hit of armor throughout entire ground animation until last hit, so that Up-B "nerf" is invalidated.
The system mechanics love him, he has Mario-tier combos.
He ain't good, but he's still in that lower-mid tier alcove he's been in since forever.

Clearly you're playing the wrong character for the job then. I get easy off-stage edgeguards with Ganon, Zard, and Luigi. Edgeguarding just isn't Falco's strong point, since all his aerials are either multi-hit or upwards-launching.

>>
You guys wanna continue that zelda and sheik gender argument?
>>
>>267684849

New grounded animation is still much worse and has a lot more recovery/startup than before. His Up B is by far a worse move than it was before.

I would also disagree and say Mario has much better combos than DK. Especially more so with his grab game being as gutted as it currently is. If you could list some combos it'd be greatly appreciated

>>267684804
Being able to ledge guard is a blessing given to a select few characters. Which is annoying.

>>267685170

falco's bair/fair are god tier edge guarding moves. Fast falled fairs are guaranteed kills on most characters

How are tiers generally decided in fighting games?

Say what you will about Smogon, but their tier list for pokemon is interesting in that it's based on hard numbers: how much a particular pokemon is used on teams. This doesn't correspond to a pokemon's strength, but it's a fairly objective way to measure things.

>>267684804

Aerial movement in Smash 4 is dog shit. It's slow, restricted and has an assload of lag on landing. I regularly see people who get knocked in the air from mid-stage, then float over and grab the fucking ledge because it's the only reasonably safe way to get back on the stage.

You almost never want to jump if your opponent is on the ground, because it gives them a huge advantage over you. This also makes it way harder to deal with projectile spammers.
>>
>>267685385
Off of U-tilt or an unteched F-air spike or Cargo U-throw, you can get 3 or more U-airs in a row, more if your opponent doesn't double jump after.

I've also had B-air go into fast-fall U-air as well as into N-air.

Although they're not as long as Mario's they do a fair number of hits with huge damage output. Keep in mind DK can KO at ~110% with many of his kill options.

Usually based on character potential; stuff like frame data, matchups, character tech, etc. The reason that they change is because often tournies or new techs increase a character's known potential or bring light to something. The real arguments come from how do you place a value on certain things, but often that is explained in matchups

Thats character specific. It's not guaranteed to get multiple upairs off of a cargo throw up. U-tilt does indeed lead to u-air in most scenarios but thats not exactly a "combo game". DK's current "combo game" is a complete disappointment compared to what it was in melee/brawl/pm/64. Also Up B went from being godlike to very sub pair real quick.

Heres a video example showing some of the silly stuff you could do with his up B.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-FXO43sUAc

It was possible to abuse the invincibility and just roll right up to people while untouchable. It was technically possible on every stage though much harder to pull off. Yoshi's was the easiest due to the slope. Some people claimed DK's Up B was second best Up B in brawl as a whole. Only issue is that it was attached to DK.

Now its one of his worst moves and one of the worst Up Bs in the game

I know it's fun to act superior and say "lol it's so early this tier list sucks there is no WAY that [character] could be that low" but seriously stop being idiots.

This isn't a completely new game, it's smash bros. We've played smash bros before, we know how it works. The game still has the same objective as the other ones: hit the opponent off the edge. We have enough knowledge of how smash games work, and enough pros who actually know what their talking about to create a base tier list that will develop. Obviously this isn't set in stone, but's it's definitely correct. It's just plain and simple "this character performs better in this Smash environment then this character." Maybe later there will be undiscovered techniques other characters have to help them get higher on the list, but just accept that some characters are just initially worse compared to some characters.

The roster this time around is actually looking to be really fucking interesting and fairly balanced compared to previous iterations considering how many characters are considered S (which I hole heartedly agree with, a lot of them are really good and deserve to be on top). Link being that high is awesome, and Bowser and Captain falcon being high is hype as fuck.

Also, if you're feeling down, or even emotionally defensive that your main is low tier, don't be. That means you kick ass with a low tier character. Remember, if you pick your character based on a tier list that you are a faggot. Pick your favourite character, whether is be Ganon or ZSS.

Please Jesus tell me this is a fucking joke.

Who wants mommy putting her hand on their shoulder when they're trying to play a video game? No wonder this DICKHEAD couldn't get past the first stage. AND WHAT'S THE STUPID LITTLE NIGGER DOING? JUMPING BACKWARDS IN TO THE AIR, SMALL MARIO, DIDN'T EVEN GET THE MUSHROOM, DIDN'T EVEN GET THE FIREFLOWER (or alternatively he got them, but got HIT by a GOOMBA - let me repeat that - HIT - BY A GOOMBA - HIT, BY AN ENEMY THAT SLOWLY MOVES ACROSS THE GROUND) DIDN'T EVEN GO IN THE PIPE TO TAKE THE SHORTCUT, HE'S PROBABLY GONNA FALL DOWN THAT HOLE, PROBABLY NOT GONNA GET THE STAR WHEN HE RESPAWNS, SITTING THERE "SMILING" WITH MOMMY'S HAND ON HIS SHOULDER, ACTING LIKE HE'S ALL "HAPPY" OR SOMETHING. YOU CAN LITERALLY NOT BE DOING WORSE AT THIS GAME THAN WHAT YOU SEE RIGHT THERE ON THE SCREEN. LET ME ASSURE YOU, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SMILE ABOUT.

But you know what the worst part about it is? The part that's going to scar me and keep me awake at night for years to come?

That dumb little PRICK, ACTING LIKE HE'S PART OF THE WHOLE CHARADE. Look at him. Not a care in the world. Won't even give his OWN BROTHER a little bit of constructive criticism on how to play the game better. I guess he's the type of person who would see someone dangling off a cliff and not feel any obligation to help them up. Sitting there with a controller in his hand; as if he's doing something.

And you know what else? Why has this sorry excuse for a man, this self-proclaimed "father" of these children allowed this SCORPION WOMAN to OVERRUN THIS POOR FAMILY? THERE'S NO LEADERSHIP HERE, THAT'S THE PROBLEM! That's why SHIT LIKE THIS IS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN EVERYONE. TAKE NOTES. FUCKING MATRIARCHY BULLSHIT. THIS MAN NEEDS TO WAKE THE FUCK UP AND PUT HIS FOOT DOWN, SOCK THAT LITTLE FUCKER RIGHT IN THE FACE, GRAB THAT CONTROLLER AND SHOW HIM THIS IS HOW YOU PLAY THE GOD DAMN GAME SON, THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT. THIS IS HOW YOU SUCCEED IN THE WORLD.

My biggest disappointment is probably megaman's placing. He needs better ground normals. His Jab, F-Tilt and N-Air being pellets really harms him, meaning his ground game relies on a bunch of moves that are either unsafe on block or have landing lag. As much as I love short hop F-Air, it's hitbox aint as big as the effect, and he doesnt have the tools to work at close range.

Because eventscrubs never tried him.
He should be B-, his spacing game is weak with N-air and D-tilt being his best pokes, but he's got enough going for him that he ought to evade bottom tier. Namely, his god-tier gimps and Flare Blitz.

While I don't agree that this tier list is useful at all, even as a ballpark, I wish people had this mentality of understanding for starcraft 2.

Monado Jump makes his recovery god-tier, sometimes worth switching to off-stage. Monado Shield is good for getting some damage on an enemy before being KO'd if Shulk is at high %. Don't really know what Monado Speed is used for.

My main strategy that's been killing it lately has been to get the enemy in the air and let loose with well timed up-aerials, keeping harassment and pressure up with occasional specials and the Yoyo if in range. The backwards throw is a solid killmove, as is the baseball bat if the opportunity arises, but the up-aerial is where most of my enemies meet their end.

And dodging. Lots and lots of dodging, obviously.

Exactly. This isn't a new game, it's the same game we've played for years but a little different. When professional players and such have been playing other smash games for years, you think they would probably know what works and what doesn't.

>>267691756
The pace of the game and how much the game rewards defensive or offensive play depends a lot on the characters being played. Sheik, Captain falcon, and a few others invoke very melee-like pace and gameplay, while Rosalina, Robin, etc. are more brawl-like. But it's never as slow and defensive as brawl and never as hyperactive and offensive as melee. Unless it's diddy ditto, then it's both as once.

Spotdodge it and smash behind you. The endlag on a miss on the Upperdash/Electrodash arms are tremendous on a whiff. If you don't think you can spotdodge it just roll into it when you're close to him. You can't punish that way but it'll go right through you.

You can jump over projectiles. Approaching in this game is really hard with him. Just get close but outside of grab range if its someone with a tether grab. If they keep shooting projectiles then hit them during the animation, you should be close enough by then. If they come at you shield and grab/hit. That or just use forward tilt to clang all of their projectiles and show them you aren't afraid.

I jump over one, double jump over the next and whoops doopsy I am still half a stage a way, just far enough where my only other approach option wont reach
And staying close to fucks as Ganon is like telling a snail to keep up with a wasp.

Foward tilt thing might work though.
Also, never really had a problem with tethers, they always have to be close enough to use those where I can just dodgeroll, and then punch them

>350 matches on For Glory

One of the most basic things you can do with him is shoot twice (jab or ftilt) then jump right after the third shot. If they try to shieldgrab or are mashing jab like a faggot that's a free bair punish, and if they shield everything you can jump away safely anyway. It's literally free ground control.
>>
>>267698701
Jump over more again when you're at halfway? THe only place they are going is off stage or roll past you if they don't attack. If you think they are going to roll don't jump as far forward use a tilt in the direction they are going it will catch them out of the roll. Ganon's feet are fucking long. His down and forward tilt are really powerful tools.

I don't understand the tier system of retards, yes that is correct.

S tiers are supposed to be reserved for a character or even maybe a couple characters that are so OP they are approaching broken. The point of the S tier is that they are so good they are off the usual A,B,C,D list, but of course smash shitters don't understand this and just plop the characters all into S tier.

No, you just don't understand MUs. Let's look at a hypothetical situation where every character in a game has a 5:5 MU against every other character in the game, flat. If you make a tier list for this game, and base it on MUs, then every single character would be in the exact same tier as they're all evenly matched against each other.

Of course, this could never happen in any game without extremely astronomically low odds, but it's a hypothetical and why stuff like this can happen. I actually agree with so many characters being in the S tier in this tier list because so many characters in this game are good and seem to have favorable match-ups against a lot of other different characters.

Let's look at a game like Street Fighter, where most of the lists are based on MUs. As I said, if there was a similar hypothetical situation where every character in Street Fighter had a 5:5 MU, everyone would be in the same tier once again. You need to objectively measure tier lists in some form and MUs are the best way to do this; if you're not going off of MUs, what are you going off of?

S tier is reserved for meta defining characters that beat majority of the cast. It is impossible for it to be huge by its very definition. If the game was 100% balanced it wouldn't have tiers at all because they would be pointless
>>
>>267703112
If you are going off on tier lists then if everyone was 5-5 everybody on the list would be about a B, A is reserved for people who have a good amount of match ups in their favor while S is reserved for people who shit on most of the cast save for a couple characters, C and B is for low to mid range characters low range characters being ones who have a couple bad match ups but overall are fine, B is for characters that are either equal in most match up's or their positive match ups cancel out their negative ones, and of course d means most of the cast shits on them

Yeah, you guys are right. Sorry. Wasn't thinking logically here. If anything though, the fundamental idea isn't flawed; most of the characters in this game are viable and the tier list should reflect that.

it's too early for a tier list, wait til the real version comes out

from playing online a shit ton, this is probably accurate as of right now.
if you decided to create a tier list for for glory specifically, this would be a whole other tier list

Bowser and Duh Cunt should be higher, Peach should be lower.

You win online because the large skill differences due to non existant match making perimiters overshadows tiers.
