General character discussion (NO tier lists please)

OK so we know every character will more then likely get there own thread sooner or later so i made this thread to lump them all together so we can find each individual character thread easily without having to sort through the inevitable mess. Also in this thread we can discuss each characters strengths/weaknesses and strats for each or just any general gameplay tips as well.

I'll link every individual character thread made in this post and i'd appreciate if this was stickied.

Mr.wiz gave us our own forum lets learn from the mistakes of the sf4 forum:rofl:

    I had high hopes for R.O.B. but he just can't cut it for me. He has a few good moves I must admit. R.O.B. has very good tilts and his air attacks are decent. His nair has a little bit of start up but everything else is good....with the exception of his Uair. His special moves are quite good, but I think it would be better if his down B move spun longer. I use G and W now but I know TheSix still uses him.

    It seems that LOTS of b-airs have been beefed in this game. It almost feels like a universal kill move when you're in the air. :|

    so who got picked to be a mod. Id like to go for one of those positions, ive been playing the game a good while now, and i want to do more for our group of SRK brawlers.

    someone put in a good word for me (or at least tell me who i have to ask for SRK Brawl Mod Powerz)
    Not too shabby.
  • orochizoolanderorochizoolander 2LANDER! Joined: Posts: 15,632
    Mr.wiz or whoever is in charge of this forum will decide a mod if and when they need so lets move on.


    Anyways I updated the OP with a link from smashboards with a compilation of "advanced techniques" in case anyone missed it and if you discovered something new or if there's anything not listed there that you think should be i'll put it in the OP.

    EDIT: Also updated the OP with a link of the character discussion threads from smashboards in case anyone is interested.

    Marth is indeed cheap as fuck. I haven't experienced enough Toon Link to make a concrete call, but he looks really good too.

    It would indeed be interesting to be a mod. I'm sure Wiz will get some folks on it soon enough. Good thing is, right now our new forum's doing okay (with the exception of certain individuals in the EVO Rules thread) so the immediate need for dedicated mods isn't there.

    you could try changing your right stick to designate it to "attack" instead of "smash," but then you can only do smashes from the analog+A, which personally i don't like because it makes some of the ATs more difficult. i am pretty sure they still work, and if you are used to not using the c-stick for smashes, by all means go for it.
  • Rioting SoulRioting Soul Joined: Posts: 4,877 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Copied and pasted from other post:

    Just found something out and don't know if you guys know about it yet. If you map the C-stick to do specials, do a run then press the c-stick in the opposite direction. This will make your character jump forward while looking back. It doesn't have the sluggish stopping animation of the Reverse Aerial Rush. I got it accidentally after trying that wavebouncing stuff.

    Up until know I'v been using the old way to get Bairs while moving forward, but the c-stick method is way quicker. It completely bypasses the animation of your character turning around and stopping their run. If you're OK with the c-stick not doing smashes, then it's definitely worth looking into.
