A little less weak than Olimar, him and Olimar were equally nerfed it feels like.

Everything has more lag, startup, hits less hard, has less knockback, etc. He really heard those complaints about MK being overpowered.

Good. He's actually fin to play now instead of being an 'I win' button.

His recovery was the most broken part.

The Real Scoop

Anyone complaining about metaknight in smash 4 simply doesn't have a clue what they're talking about. The ONLY thing wrong with his current state is that the hitboxes for certain attacks don't match the animations, which is admittedly bullshit but there was no way they were going to give him a completely new moveset.

He is still a perfectly playable character, if not on the higher tier side of the roster.

Wario and DK took bigger hits than MK, and they were nowhere near as good. RIP DK, you are the new GDorf.

>>
>>269369192
uwot
Wario can fly now and DK got buffed a ton.
>>
>>269369672
Wario's smashes are much worse, especially his side smash, and DK has a lot more lag on everything, especially his Donkey Punch.

Since everyone is stronger in Smash 4, and shields are much, much, much more broken, DK is fucking doomed. He's like a shitty Ike, and Ike is already pretty mediocre.
>>
>>269369883

The only smash I'd say got worse is his Fsmash. His Dsmash was hot garbage in Brawl, and Usmash wasn't much better.
>>
>Brawl-3DS comparison
>>
>>269370000
Yeah, but Wario's Usmash is liquid shit right now, and Dsmash wasn't made much better. Plus, the Wario Waft is worse now, too, it feels. Much harder to land, and it takes longer to charge.

The bike changes also made the waft worse, too. Before, you used to be able to eat the individual pieces of the bike and charge faster. Now the bike has to be swallowed hole, and good like keeping it on stage after jumping off of it.
>>
Metaknight is still okay

That being said, some of those hitbox nerfs are way too much
>Up special hitbox is needle thin, and you end up going right through people a lot and getting punished
>Tornado hitbox is the character, not the blade whirlwind spinning around him
>You can give people haircuts with side special
>Down smash hitbox ends two thirds of the way up the sword
>Dair hitbox doesn't exist
>>
>>269367930
He wasn't fun to play then, and he's probably even less fun to play now.
>>
>>269370320

His Usmash now is pretty much just Mario's, which is a big step up from that multihit crap that no one ever bothered with.
>>
>>269370152
Christ that's bad. Did they change the properties at all or just nerf it?
>>
>>269370584
Mario's USmash was at least good for combo'ing people, though mostly everyone just uses his Utilt nowadays, since it's the burning fire of desire.

Wario is also extremely predictable. He hits pretty damn hard, but it's really easy to counter him. Easier than Ganon, I feel, because Ganon can at least just Flame Choke into down tilt for an easy 40-50%
>>
>>269370320
But now the waft can be charged by eating items, and you get healed by 1%. This includes both the bike and the parts before they disappear
>>
>>269370335
He's ok, but his hitboxes are still broken.

If you're going to nerf the range that hard on his moves, why not just give him new attacks that actually match up with where his sword goes? It just doesn't feel right to have your sword pass right through someone.

MK is basically Roy now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kht7deE4Zyw
>>
>>269370628

the hitbox is more at the front and bottom of meta knight's down air, rather than also being behind him

the comparison makes it seem much more extreme than it is
>>
>>269370802

They're both not that great, but they're okay. You could SDI out of Wario's old Usmash, it was just pathetic. He isn't easier to counter than Ganon either, Choke into Dtilt isn't even a real combo. You can tech the choke so it won't hit you.

Maybe instead of nerfing Meta, they should have buffed everybody to match him, making a faster game

But anon, that would mean the game would require more skill than Mario Kart, and that is unacceptable in Sakurai's eyes. The game needs to be so simplistic even your grandad can play it.

Meta Knight did need a nerf, but they should've just directed it to his range, speed, priority, or power, not all of them at once.

He didn't.

Green Greens is surprisingly faithful to KDL, and even if it wasn't Green Greens Ver. 2 instantly makes it one of the best stages in the game.

Just because it's not meant to be competitive doesn't mean it can't be played that way.

It's got a lot of potential as a competitive game, and people enjoy playing it that way- and that's all there is to it.

Jesus christ, how fucking thick can you be?

Just because modes like Smash Tour are in the game doesn't mean it's a party game- and just because it's not a party game doesn't mean ANYBODY is implying that it's some kind of ultra-hardcore game for pros. That's just fucking ridiculous.

>this game isn't a party game, the dev said so
>WOW WELL I GUESS THIS MODE MUST ONLY BE FOR THE MOST HARDCORE MOTHERFUCKERS AM I RIGHT
>>
>>269372986
this. the super armor is completely broken. i understand he needs it to land all those hits, but then to make the hits have absurd knockback and just insane amounts of damage on top of that is a bit fucking ridiculous. and even trying to jump around him is harder than it should be, since a lot of his moves can chance on the fly from a forward hit to an uppercut. he's definitely overpowered, but thankfully everyone sucks ass at playing him if you're patient and cheese him with throws and shit. I just really hate that you basically can't fight him like a normal opponent, making it completely unfun.
>>
>>269379793
This, not every fighting game is super hardcore serious. Look at Clay Fighters or the DBZ games.
>>
>>269380440
The thing I've noticed about Little Mac players is that they're either really crappy or insanely, untouchably good.

Either they'll wind up making dumb mistakes like throwing themselves off of the edge of the stage or completely wiping the floor with you. I don't think I've ever fought an "average" Mac.
>>
>>269379793
So now it's both things? You just said it was a fighting game.
Make up your mind. Also try not to get too flustered over the internet.
>>
>>269380708
I agree with that, although I guess I've been lucky enough not to run into very many of the insanely good ones. there's been one or two, but mostly no matter how good they are it's simply a matter of sitting near the edge and reading their moves. they always manage to get me up to a high percent but it never matters. the game is just too defensive for a character like little mac to be much good.

and again, the biggest issue is that either good or bad he's a horribly unfun character to play against.
>>
>>269380969
It's a fighting game with lots of bonus modes for fun.

I guess Soulcalibur isn't a fighting game now.
>>
>>269381147
I miss Chronicles of the Sword.
>>
>>269381147
So you could almost say those fun modes could be played in a party-like setting, perhaps?
>>
>>269381121
I used to run into amazing Little Macs left and right when the game first came out. Don't tend to see them that much anymore, though.

>and again, the biggest issue is that either good or bad he's a horribly unfun character to play against.
At least if he's good it's a challenge. Rosalina's just plain annoying.
>>
>>269380969

>>269380706
Stop being pretending to be retarded, faggot. Not every fighting game is a tournament level competitive game. Have you ever seen a tournament for Naruto Ninja Storm or the Bleach fighting games?
>>
>>269381303
Yes, but that doesn't make Smash a party game, just a game that's great for parties (like most other games with great local multiplayer modes)
>>
>>269380969
>So now it's both things?
it's fucking neither, you asshat.

It's not a party game. It's not really a fighting game either.

Sakurai calls it an 'action game' and has never referred to it as either a fighting game (contrary to what anon said earlier) or a party game, though he admits that 'fighting game' is not a completely unfitting term.

What you need to try to understand is that there's a really fucking wide space between "ultra-casual party game" and "hardcore 'pros only' fighting game", and Smash is in that space.
>>
>>269381346
if he's good it's not so much a challenge as a slaughter, really. that's the problem with a character who is meant to be overpowered with a huge drawback...if the overpowered part outweighs the drawback it becomes just overpowered.
>>
Why do I have the impression that this game is unbalanced as fuck after following the usual threads here?
Do you guys cherrypick a little or is it really this bad?
>>
>>269381656
It's Smash bros. The only not shit balanced game was the very first one. And that's because everyone had death combos. Except poor Samus.
>>
>>269381627
Well i'm glad we had this discussion to finally decipher what kind of game smash is. Thanks, bud.
>>
>>269381843
This right here. Every other character is broken except your main
>>
>>269381656
Lots of cherrypicking.

People have whined about every character since the game came out, and a couple even claimed that zss and bowser were nerfed in the sdcc demo.
Of course, whining about Meta Knight and Olimar getting overall nerfs is somewhat justified, but otherwise, I ignore complaining about character balance.
>>
>>269381303
So I guess because Call of Duty has leveling and customization it's an RPG too.
>>
>smashbabbies still thinking their game is competitive
>>
>>269381656

Real talk, there are about 5 characters that just feel better than the rest. Little mac is a scrub stomper and is buffed by FD being the only stage. Then there's olimar way down in shit tier. Everybody else are pretty middle of the road.

Speaking of, does Samus still have a shitty roll in Smash 4? I enjoy her Project M form too much.

You could say it has RPG elements. All games borrow traits from other genres and 'pure' games are the exception.
>>

>>
>>269381635
>Overpowered part outweighs the drawback
That's what really annoys me. You get all these people that are constantly "lol just throw him off the edge", problem being that if a Mac falls for it, they were bad (Most are) and you could have just beaten his ass midstage anyways.

Fighting a good Mac makes it very evident that the edgecamp tactic doesn't work. At all. You will probably lose faster doing that then just fighting him normally
>>
>>269383032
yup. but fighting a good mac will get you killed no matter what unless you're just plain a better player, and even then you'd better hope you picked a decent match up against the guy or you're toast. and that's why I think he's a shitty character. nofun because you're either wrecking them without even trying, or you're getting your shit wrecked so hard your children are born with loose buttholes.
>>
>>269382860
