but if you're at too high % to either tech or mash out, then just Don't Get Hit™

That's some real Bayonetta sounding bullshit right there.

you're not fighting bayonetta, though, so it's legitimate advice even if it sounds dismissive

if DK is able to grab you at all as samus, it could mean that you're not zoning him out hard enough, but it's hard to know for sure without a vod

‘The most inoffensive user on this website’ - Verbatim
@cmd and verb

I prefer to slide my thumb across the attack/jump buttons, but I know a lot of players change their taunt buttons to shield, so you mash the D-pad directions. (Beefy smash doors made a good guide to mashing in S4 that still applies to ultimate)

It’s one of the fastest methods to get out of grabs/grounding and doesn’t buffer double jump or attacks in bad moments. It’s only really bad for puff since her air dodge has 4 weeks of cool down.

On a personal note; I suck since I don’t have a setup to grind, but really feeling Doc and Sheik in Ultimate. the former for pills, grab game and kill power, and the latter for crisp movement and offstage/edgeguarding.

It’s a quote from an OG 64/Melee GOAT. Bayo shills just wax lyrical about optimal SDI.

Went back to play Smash 4 for a little bit and the game is so slow compared to Ultimate like holy shit, the difference is night and day.

It's astonishing how much better and fluid Ultimate is.

it's a little sad really, smash 4 is the only game in the series that is pretty much completely obsolete

it offers basically nothing that the others don't already have, unless you like smash tour i guess

whereas 64 offers charm and simplicity, melee offers the most technical gameplay, brawl offers SSE, and ultimate has every character in the series on top of having all around solid gameplay

smash 4 has a shitty stage builder and infinite degenerate air dodges

Fixed

That mode should have certainly stayed.
Break The Targets and Home Run mode need to find their way back in too.

I just need to give up on trying to get into Elite smash.
I've been as high as 3.6 million GSP as Dark Samus and not gotten in and in all this time I have not enjoy a single matchmaking game. Even in cases where I've 3 stocked people I still wanted to put my Switch in the microwave afterward. There has to be a better way than this.

I had already started by the time you sent this and the experience is already infinitely more enjoyable.

Little Mac at the campus fucked me up again. This is a bit embarrassing. Smash 4 air dodges were AIDS for sure but at the same time I miss being able to land as Samus

Leften may just be the most unbearable human being on the face of the Earth and I hope he spends the rest of his life losing to Hungrybox at everything he does.

The F-Zero soundtrack goes hard, especially those songs from the N64 game.

I always put Devil’s Call In Your Heart when I play the F-Zero stages. It’s fucking intense. I still can’t believe this was in a Nintendo game.

you're not fighting bayonetta, though, so it's legitimate advice even if it sounds dismissive

if DK is able to grab you at all as samus, it could mean that you're not zoning him out hard enough, but it's hard to know for sure without a vod

Well I'm doing more to zone people out and now a friend of mine who I practice with is accusing me of being too campy. Like am I doing it wrong or....

depends on if you're winning or losing

obviously if you're winning and he's calling you campy, then you're 100% doing it right (though you may run the risk of pissing off your friends which is always the unfortunate part of defensive play in friendlies)

if you're still losing, then whatever it is you're doing wrong is going to depend on how your opponent is beating you

if your opponent isn't having a hard time getting in on you, then you need to work on controlling space more

lately samus players have been beating my ass by camping under platforms and doing shorthop fairs or uairs whenever i try to approach, it's quite annoying but also pretty effective and i'm actually struggling with beating that strategy

see, i literally just played a samus who played like that and i couldn't do a goddamn thing

he threw out like 40 charge shots and i think i got hit by every single one, and i tried my hardest to avoid them all

might just be input lag or something but goddamn what an oppressive character

He won most of out rounds but not by much. We we're pretty even for the most part especially compared to the last time we played. He's been using Ike who just oblithertates me if I try to directly challenge him in air (where he is like 99.999% of the time) so I've been trying to keep my distance to charge and fire missiles as he approaches and hopefully catch him with well timed F-Airs.

One thing though is that I've been fumbling the "run out, run back in" kinda thing I've been trying to implement into my playstyle where I'll dash away to avoid an incoming attack and, then turn arround to and dash attack or something.

4.05 million GSP with simon

a completely meaningless number that, nonetheless, still makes me feel pretty happy
