    So where's all the ganondorf love? :lol:

    Anyways, I figured I should start lurking around here since I love Brawl. I've got some vids up here if anyone wants to watch 'em. However, I'm pretty fail at the game, so whatever.

    See you all around.

    I Find Toon Link really easy to control. Toon link is enjoyable to play with.

    I am a CVS 2 player . Never thought I would have fun playing Brawl. I hated on Smash, because None of the character did what I wanted them to do.( / fit my play style)

    For somebody with only 6 hours of smash game play under my belt do you smashers think

    Toon Link is a good starter character/ cuz I am a novice?.:wonder:

    Toon link is a very well rounded character; he has decent projectiles, great smash attacks on the ground, even better aerial game (his dair is beastly), and because he can do everything reasonably well and is fairly easy to use imo he's on the the very best characters.

    I just started using him but my early impressions lead me to believe he has a lot of potential.

    QFT; He's very solid overall. If you enjoy playing as him, I don't see why not.

    I played metaknight last night, and because of you I used his neutral B. It is a beast :lol:

    Every once in a while, I like to use Lucas. PK FIRE FOR THE ZONE! Though, I would use Bowser over Lucas at any tournament. But that's just my preference.

    Gdorf's problem is the fact that his attacks and runspeed are all too sluggish to combo effectively.

    In those videos I suggest using less Thunderstomp and Fair, and after a Flame Choke use his Dtilt. It's a guaranteed hit. Also, seriously, a Dark Leap at close range vs Marth? Totally awesome. He can't counter or nothin.

    But still, not bad at all.

    EDIT: Oh! Also try using air Wizard's Foot a little later. If it comes out faster they can't react giving you the impact-damage.

    You don't try to combo with Gannon.
    You only really combo up to 4 hits with him, and that's only if it's set up REALLY nice.

    Even though he's slow, he can still lock people down with his strength.
    And he can counter projectiles fairly easy.

    And his uair is REALLY good, and hits 360 degrees, and is a great edgegaurd.
    And his uair can also be combo'd after using his dthrow .

    How the hell do you combo 4 hits with ganon? I main him and have never been able to do that.

    Are there any tutorials around?
    and is there a thread somewhere I can find all the acronyms and nick names etc? I don't get what tilt means mainly...

    What the heck is a tilt?
  • orochizoolanderorochizoolander 2LANDER! Joined: Posts: 15,625
    it's one you press the directions stick slightly instead of fully and then A.

    Yeah so I just started maining marth, trying to space correctly online is gay. He's got good ko power though on the tippers.

    Dammit, I thought you can only do tilts by holding down the direction instead of tapping it. No wonder people can do tilts a lot more easily than I can. IE: I always jump before doing up tilt and sometimes I run instead of doing forward tilt.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?

    One way to help this is to take off Up-Jump. You get so much more control over your air game when you do it that way IMO.

    If you're heading to SB3, I'll run some Ganon/Marth matches with you. That's one of my favorite matches. :tup:

    Ganon is one of my mains as well. Haven't had ganon mirrors in a while.

    For a sticky, its weird to see this thread hasn't been touched in ages.

    Anyway, I wanna bring up Yoshi since he used to be really under rated not too long ago. I would find it hard to believe if people still see him as low tier. Sooo many useful techs were discovered with him. His bair is rape. Bair->Utilt->Uair is rape even if it is a little predictable. I've seen Yoshis place high in regional tourneys so I'm actually glad I didn't quit maining him. So much potential...

    Yoshi is decent but never give up on your main. Before the game out i wanted to main ROB and been using him ever since but did not think he was going to be a top character.

    How the hell do you dodge Metaknight's FS?

    anticipation...since ppl tend to try n mind game u and use the FS u can try n knock it out or anitcipate it and dodge..thats it really but tbh im not worried bout MK's FS its his damn tornado i cant stand Dx

    The hitbox for his FS projects pretty far out but it's really narrow. Try staying above or below him until you can knock the Smash ball out of him.

    I tend to disagree with most ranking of the characters, Yoshi being one of them. He's a good quick characters overall and he has a decent recovery now. His only problem are his smash moves aren't very strong, but otherwise, he's a good character.

    He would be if he could jump out of shield.



    When he's in his shield, he's 100% committed, which means good presspoure games rape him.


    Shield is so good in smash (low shield stun, low shield drop, easy perfect shield timing), that having a shield that forces you to be so committed is crippling.

    Playing Ganondorf makes this game competitive enough for me. Great challenge :) He basically has Dair, double jump Nair, Bair, Uair, tilts besides Utilt, and side b.

    I'm also a Ganon fan because he's one of the only realistic males (besides falcon) that doesn't fight with a standard weapon. What's even more badass is that he has one, but doesn't want to use it.

    Using him against plasma/elemental characters though really sucks. A keepaway Pikachu always gives me problems, and his Down-Smash is crazy good for no reason. Even when you guard up close, you just sort of get sucked in and take some damage.

    Agreed on Pikachu. Can't stand him.
