I’m going to post it anyway just for the people who don’t know. Obviously, everyone uses dashes to cover ground quicker to get to the other guy. But if you use your dash attack many times it’ll get stuffed b/c most characters just use their fastest attacks to knock them out of it.
A neat trick i like to do is run towards them, and in anticipation of a counter attack i roll through them or back. this may not seem like much or it may seem pretty obvious. But i noticed you can cancel your run straight into a roll.
Has this already been mentioned? Anyway just in case it hasn’t been or people are confused on what i’m saying, i’ll explain exactly how i do it.
During a run, you tap the block button, and tap left or right to roll back or through someone. What happens is you cancel your run into a block, but before your shield ever comes out you just end up doing your roll.it ends up looking pretty ambiguous to the other person because they never see the shield, and you just end up rolling. it ends up being a safe way to close the gap between you and your opponent.
another thing you can do is cancel your run in the same way (by timing the press of your block button), and instead of rolling, do one of your smash attacks (instead of your dash attack coming out).
yeah so i just wanted to share this with people. sorry if this is common knowledge or has already been posted.
edit: changed dash to run
