So, I just hacked my Wii and got this game like yesterday, and I really love it. I’m an avid Brawl player, and I really love the technical aspect of this game, I’ve been watching videos and doing research, it seems like the metagame is awesome. There are just some things I don’t understand. Note: I’m using a gamecube controller (if that’s ok…) and I’m playing Roll (and Casshern), she’s pretty fun (although, she may not be the best character in TVC, the Ice Climbers aren’t the best character in smash, but I still kick ass) Here are some of my really newbish questions.
Should I be using the (terrible) d-pad or the control stick? I’ve been using the d pad.
Is it really worth it for me to get the classic controller? at tourneys, how many people use the classic controller in comparison to the GC controller?
If I do use the GC controller, should I mod the control settings in any way?
What does OTG stand for?
How do people do charge moves so fast and consistantly? I mean is it just muscle memory? Like, I see people who play with Roll setting up combos with sweep and I just can’t initiate that quickly, like, about how long do you hold back? Can someone in detail explain that.
And what about blocking, how exactly do you do advanced blocking, and when do you want to do it and not do it?
Whenever I try to practice certain combos I see in FAQs, I can’t tell if I’m doing them right, but I don’t think I am… like if I see :snka:,:snkb:,:snkc:, D+, Roll Sweep Does that mean that I don’t crouch, or is it just implied or what?
Are there any video FAQs anywhere? Because, I have no idea what these combos are suppose to look like, or if I’m doing them even remotely correct.
And I know I’m going to sound so stupid for saying this, but any tips on beating the boss in arcade mode?
Is there like a legit tier list so far?
What’s the best and fastest way to learn combos, and get better (assuming, I have no one [good] to play with)?
I could ask a ton more questions, but I’ve already asked way too many I’m sure.
Thank you so much for taking your time answering my questions.
