Aight so Aus is officially implementing the NTSC version. Whilst this gives Fox a few buffs that allow him to kill earlier over PAL, my main boi Sheik gets the core of her gameplay back - her Down throw. Reaction tech chasing on Spacies becomes much easier/guaranteed (lmao take that cunts) and she can chain grab half the cast to some pretty meaty % if not death. Also more kill options = Yas. I’ll still probs bitch about how unfair Spacies are tho.
Ganon gets a buff to Stomp (can kill earlier off the top but reduces combo potential) and Fair which is sick too.
Sheik gets slept on a lot but Plup knows how to get results without the lame gameplay she gets a bad rep for (I.e: Captain Jack, Mew2king, etc.). I’d love to put more work into her and use that style of play, but it doesn’t come naturally to me and I find myself going on the defensive a lot under pressure. It’s a bad habit to get into and I think I benefit more from a more aggressive neutral against rushdown Marths/Foxes/Falcos. Against Doc I could do either and as long as I’m controlling the pace it’s a p clear win and Peach seems to have a bit of a hard time too. Falcon is a fun matchup but it isn’t as easy as you’d think even at a level as low as mine, and simple mistakes can lead to huge punishes.
Defensively I want to work a lot on my DI/SDI on top of basic control, because I feel like it would solve a lot of the problems I face against similar level players.
