As a casual Captain Falcon player can you explain that for dummies?

so like, you know how difficult it was to land the sweetspot on the knee of justice (falcon's forward air)?

basically, in melee, it was WAY easier, to the point where you could even combo it into itself, which was super flashy and ultra satisfying to watch (even the weak hit of the knee had its situational comboing purposes)

YouTube

since brawl, they drastically nerfed it to the point where, in a way, instead of a powerful combo tool, it works more like a mini-Falcon Punch in the air, where it's a high-risk-high-reward move that asks a lot from your accuracy

it's two different ways of looking at the move, but i find the former a lot more fun

i've always jokingly described melee falcon as a spry, energetic, high-flying kind of guy who hit his midlife crisis and became a washed up old man in smash 4/brawl, because that's what he feels like to me

but in this new 3.1.0 patch that just dropped, they increased the size of the stronger hitbox, making it easier to sweetspot, and thereby a lot more fun to use

raptor boost (side+b) was also buffed significantly (among other things) to work more as intended

for your interest, here are the patch notes (dedede went untouched)

Been playing Falcon a bit casually and I just don't have a conceptual idea how to play him.
My game is so special oriented (Zelda, Samus) that any other playstyle feels super weird.

Air wobble to rest has always been falcon’s bread and butter tbh

Having both falcon dive and the knee as a kill option is 👌

This is basically where I'm at right now.

Blue = Main
Teal = Secondary
Red = Potential / Learning the character
Orange = Casual play

I've wanted Richter to be my #2 for a while but I just play better with Joker, the fit is more natural. Samus is kinda weird because I've had days where I'm unbeatable and days I can't get a kill to save my life with her.

Red = main squeezes
Blue = it's complicated; i wouldn't call them "secondaries" per se, because i haven't been as faithful to them as i promised, but i can't really think of anyone else that fits

Sheik is a sad story. We had a fling in Smash 4, and it was honestly looking pretty great for us, but I had to dump her after I found out she'd relapsed on her G-tier habits from the Brawl-era. It's different with Puff—she's only ever been good in one Smash game, and everyone hated her for it, so I'm more willing to support her because of those fucked up circumstances. Sheik just doesn't have an excuse. I don't have more time to waste with these G-tier junkies who can't get a kill.

Link and I tried working something out last winter, but he's too high maintenance, and I'm just a broke college student, so I had to let him know it wasn't gonna work out. Any character that needs to do weird shit to recover optimally is just not something I'm willing to put up with. It's a deal breaker.

Lucario and I had a good run, but after being a part of my life since Brawl, we decided it would be best for us to part ways. There's no hard feelings—we decided one day that things were starting to get cold between us. His combos just felt weirder, and not like how they used to. At one point it got heated, and he accused me of only liking him because of his aura (which I told him wasn't true at all, but if I'm being honest with myself, he's kinda right). We decided to "take a break, see other people," and after a while, we discovered that we were happier this way, so we officially separated. Like I said, it was cordial. I'm not too beat up over it.

Mario, Captain Falcon, Wolf, Little Mac, and Ryu are all nice guys, but I can't help but put them in the casual zone. I just can't really imagine myself committing to any of them on a serious level.

4.0.0 maintenance is happening within the next week, and Sakurai's giving a 22-minute demonstration of the Dragon Quest Hero before he comes out, so he should be getting released soon.

so, someone dug up an old 4chan post from december 2018
Quote
My most wanted DLC is still my Sylux and [Adelaine] dream team, but...
>Doomguy, 2016 design but with Eternal's exposed biceps and arm blade
>Monster Hunter with M/F alts each wearing a different armor
>Dragon Quest 3, 4, 8, or 11 hero, alt colors based on the rest of the series.
>Banjo+Kazooie

the fact that this guy was able to predict not only the dragon quest hero, but ALL the different hero alts as well from all the specific different games they're from, gives this leak a lot of credibility

i for one am not okay with doomguy being in smash, but if he has to be in the game, then so fucking be it i guess

pretty lame though

not the first time randomness has played a part in a character's design, but never really to this extent

i don't know what they were thinking, to be honest

i am actively hoping that this character is low tier now, and that's a horrible thing to hope for

I don't see any issue with Doomguy. DOOM has been on the SNES, is a landmark title in the history of video games, and I think that Doomguy is great as a representative of the FPS genre.

Yeah, the source material is violent, but I feel that you can still convey doomguy's attributes without gore or anything.

Plus, he's just a fun character period. He might be my favorite silent protagonist.

There's loads of fun little things you could do with him in smash, like make his icon at the bottom of the screen the original Doomguy face.

i don't disagree, but just because you can doesn't mean that you should

lately, smash games have been lauded for how faithful they've been able to represent their newer guest characters, with characters like Mega Man, Bayonetta, the Street Fighter shotos, and the Belmonts all playing exactly as they do in their home series, and i just don't think a goreless, unviolent Doomguy or Doom Slayer (which is what he'd have to be watered down to) would please anybody, except for the people who would accept literally anything

he can't even have the BFG, because you can't say or imply "fuck" in a nintendo game (and don't tell me it stands for anything else, because it doesn't)

you also have to consider how unpopular the FPS genre is in japan

i would unironically rather have master chief, because at least extreme violence is not an element of Halo's core appeal

you should know that the guy who posted the leak came out and said he was only guessing
(and boy was it a lucky guess)

there's no way to tell for sure if he's the same guy, but the fact that the twitter account has lots of sylux/adelaine art makes it seem unlikely that he's lying

Oh yeah, I knew about that when I responded to you, I was keeping up with the thread on /v/ about it.

I was discussing his hypothetical inclusion.  I'll respond in depth to your reply later btw.

The Slayer would be absolutely legit and is a much better character than a literal plant in a pot. He could be a great addition to the game. Throw some rip and tear metal in there and have some demon voice lines for his trailer / cinematics. 10/10

For anyone good at the game, yeah.

I’ll stick to casual play cause that’s how I have the most fun with Smash. I’ll still watch pro players every once in a while cause pro Smash is fun to watch.

EVO is going on right now if you or anybody gives a fuck, specifically the top 8 for smash ultimate

no melee this year honestly hurts my interest a lot, but ultimate is still cool
