That is actually pretty crazy. I wonder if it will mean anything for the competitive meta. Melee is so magical.

@Hero_Of_Hyrule If I'm understanding that garbled jargon-filled explanation correctly (maybe?) then I don't think it's humanly possible to make any real use of this. For every weird "exploit" that gets integrated into Melee's metagame, there's probably five more that don't. True for Ultimate, too, which already has a lot of little nuanced movement options that will probably never see actual use (and a few that already do).

I finally picked up a Switch Pro Controller (they were on sale for $54 on Amazon) and decided to give it a try. Man, my muscle memory is so Gamecube-centered, it's gonna take a while for me to get used to this thing for Smash. I wish the buttons were a bit closer together, but otherwise it feels nice overall.

When I played Smash 4 I had no trouble adapting to the Gamepad, but going back to the game a couple years later I had no idea what I was doing. Gamecube controller is what my muscle memory is adapted to.

Jesus Christ, I just played about 15 matches on my preferred rules which include all stages, and literally EVERY stage was a battlefield or omega stage. Is that all anyone plays?! Ug.

NOTE: I was choosing no rematch each time.

Servers are down for maintenance and the game is updating to 2.0.0. Apparently we're getting Piranha Plant tonight, in addition to a few other small features (multiplayer Spirit Board) and some character balance changes.

Character balance adjustments are here. Certainly better than the nothing we got in Smash 4.

Can confirm, just got Piranha Plant in my game!

Also, apparently if you footstool a crouching Piranha Plant, it will automatically attack you for small damage. It's amazing that this is a thing, and maybe even more amazing that someone found such a weird obscurity already.

Zero said:
I finally unlocked all of the characters.

Legit confused why I thought I unlocked all of the character but the Mii fighter and Mii shooter ones aren't on my character select screen. Yet no new ones are coming up to battle while playing, and none are waiting in the area where you can fight ones you lost to before.

Posted: 01/30/19, 05:19:29
@Zero You might have to create them? I don't remember if the Miis had some special unlock stuff.

EDIT: Wow the poison cloud is crazy! I spat one out fully charged, grabbed the opponent inside it, pummeled him a few times and threw him...and it racked up over 70%. That's nuts.

Piranha is ok. A lot of attacks above you, which makes sense. I like the spiked ball, using it in the air is fun.

@nate38 But I have the Mii swordfighter?!

Hmm, looks like you're right though. You have to actually create a Mii fighter of each type to unlock it. I guess I created a swordfighter awhile back and forgot about that.

So there's a glitch that corrupts data if you play All-Star/Century Smash modes with the new version? That's real shitty!

Upon further review, this issue happens when playing All-Star Mode or Century Smash as Piranha Plant, Duck Hunt, or Mii Swordfighter. Be warned!

I downloaded 2.0 last night but haven't gotten to check it out yet. Do you have to download PP separately or something? My friend got the update but not the Plant.

@J.K. Riki
Your friend needs to redeem the code that Nintendo sent to his email back when he registered the game (or bought it digitally). If he didn’t get an email, he should check his junk folder.

It’s a weirdly nonsensical way to do it, but Nintendo.

You can also unlock each of the Mii Fighters in World of Light.

I made sure to redeem that code the second I got it because I knew I'd lose it if I didn't. I'm surprised people are having so many issues with this, redeeming a code for a piece of DLC isn't unheard of?

That said, I have absolutely no idea how to use Piranha Plant, which is exciting. I finished Classic at 5.6 with him! Lots of attacks that shoot straight up, ridiculous range, a side-B charging projectile... definitely an unintuitive fighter. I like it! Excited to see what people do with him, that video nate posted was cool.

I lost quite a bit doing Classic Mode with Piranha Plant yesterday.
Posted: 02/01/19, 03:45:46

Ok, I’ve never taken the time to get these KI “Hints” before. I’m going to have to check them out with my son. He’ll get a kick out of that!
Posted: 02/01/19, 21:57:04
Classic mode might corrupt your save data too? Guess I lucked out, because that's the first thing I did with my PP.
Posted: 02/02/19, 03:05:36
Actually didn't take me that long to re-complete World of Light on Easy to re-attempt that last challenge. Feels good.

Now purely a multi-player game.

You've been through that beast twice? Oh sweet lord Bjork. That's enough of that.
