Super Smash Bros Brawl

Recommended Posts

Though I do feel the need to remark to Sengin that the Melee/Brawl shift is quite a bit different than Zelda 1 to Zelda 2. It was pretty much unanimous among everyone that Zelda 2 was a step backward for the Zelda series.

I meant that I personally felt that brawl felt like a step backwards because I play smash competitively. I do know others that prefer brawl over melee, and fewer still that prefer it's gameplay (the others are part of the group that want to win easily without much practice or skill).

While melee does have it's balance issues, they generally aren't as bad as brawl's are (at least for now, who's to say what the metagame will uncover eventually, if there's enough interest in competitive brawl). Like I said a little while ago, I've seen a pichu at least 3-stock a fox (it was a while ago, I don't remember the exact results).

Oh, and I forgot to mention:

Autograbbing the ledge from Up-B - OUT

Though perhaps something can be done about it. Take, for instance, Marth's up-B. If you, I don't know, hold down the B-button or something, and he passes the ledge before he finishes, instead of going past it he'll grab the ledge with his hand and either A) flip onto the ledge with no invincibility and his standard options to either attack, climb up, or jump depending on what button is pressed as he flips from the ledge (though you can't hang there) or B) invert himself for a short while because of the momentum (he'll be upside down hanging on the ledge with no invincibility) and then you could choose to attack on the stage, jump off the ledge, climb up (more of a "fall down" at this point), or hang back on the ledge.

Jam: don't play jiggs. Play Metaknight. He's like jiggs, only better. Just sayin'.

Edit: Does anyone know what EVO and MLG are doing about melee/brawl? I heard that EVO2008 was brawl, but I don't know if they plan to continue with it for '09.

The tier list here is much better than SBR. I mean, c'mon, Mewtwo is difficult to use and can't fight certain people well without skill, luck and a miracle, but he is NOT, and I repeat NOT worse than Pichu. I am sorry, but hear me: I used to like lightweight characters, but no, I couldn't enjoy Pichu long; he / she / it is the setup of death, even worse than Jigglypuff, who has the sleep attack as a makeup for her exasperating stats.

Common sense question: damaging oneself with one's own special attacks??? Yeah, I could kill with Pichu, but by the time I KO someone I have to be on guard x1000, saving my thunderbolts for worst-case scenarios at 169% As Pichu, I am already easily knocked out and targeted by hateful clowns who think it's funny to kill mice, and the only offense / defense I have is to chew on their ankles and rush a few charges through their bodies while making myself vulnerable in the process. With that, my best escape method (quick attack) hurts me too, so I am 99.9% likely to take damage, with the exception of a fight with a standing dummy in practice mode. Thanks, Hal, thanks.

Does ANYONE NEW want to play me? I'm going random characters and dicking around.
Well, we've been through this before. I won't say anything until my broke college behind gets a Wii. No need to say it again. :lol:

Edit: meantime, a couple buddies IRL who will fight anyone:

I want to play someone new but every time I ask if anyone wants to play, nobody I've never played with before does (only the people who don't have a Wii are willing to play). COME ON FOLKS I'M NOT THAT MEAN. :(

Any of them have AIM? I'd rather talk to them on AIM or something first.

Not sure, lemme ask. They're on my myspace (not in front of me, though I do know them), so I don't know their AIM addresses, but if they wanna' fight, they can give you details. I'll email them.

I'd like some 1v1's. BFC: 3308 4269 0829 Do you have an AiB account? I'm HideousBeing on AiB. We could use their chat.

Edit: I'm in Smash Talk right now.

What's AiB? Also I'll play.

Arek, it's okay. I'm certainly not in the mood right now to prove anything.

Oh. It's allisbrawl.com. I just use it because I don't have AIM.

Edit: I'll be on in a sec.

Good games, HideousBeing. You're better than I had anticipated.

Not shabby, but I just spent the whole time reading all your moves.

I am Global-Trance on Smashboards but I don't go there to post I'm afraid.

HideousBeing didn't win any matches just now but I will put money down he can beat most of you guys. As to clarify about me being on Smashboards, I wouldn't go out of your way to find me. I don't really care too much about the Smash community. I don't even go to tournaments or any of that, so reading about tournaments and stuff is kind of pointless to me.

I noticed. Being campy is quite rewarding in Brawl. I try to employ it as much as possible without being predictable.

Sorry, I just stumbled across this thread... do you guys play online or something? cause i just got a wii with brawl and would love to play =)

From the sound of it, you seem qualified to challenge Salluz.

Aww. Thanks!

Alright. I was only curious if you were some big name who used a different name for OCR. I was half expecting, "Yeah, I'm Eggz on SWF."

there should be air tripping

P.S. There is. I've seen videos of someone dropping through the platform on Smashville and shortly after falling through, they went into a tumbling animation AND THEY WERE UNABLE TO GET OUT OF IT AND THEY FELL OFF THE SCREEN. It's a rare occurrence though so it's no big deal.
