Yeah. You just have to pay attention to your collected Spirits and use them to your advantage!

That said, all I did was spam Bowser’s down aerial on that fight. It breaks through the flames.

Had tons of fun last night. Les do it again.

Zero is a total Smash hustler.

Teamplay with friendly fire on is great. I watched Zero knock his teammate the fuck out.

Me and Ploot smacked eachother up nicely. I remember blocking some of my own teammates smashes lol, ones that woulda killed me.

Carlos decided I'm a hustler or something because I eventually won one or two matches.

This is basically how it felt totally wrecking Nate and feeling awesome about it then realizing he was on my own team.

Well that was fast. The patch is out.

Some rebalancing of some characters, tweaks to online matchmaking, various gameplay fixes.

And they're actually telling us what characters got changed this time around! Would be nice if they actually said what the changes were, but hey, baby steps. (Nintendo IS for babies, after all.)

Yeah I had to back away for a bit. Did you beat it? Any strategies?
Posted: 12/14/18, 04:59:57
@DrFinkelstein I used Marth, with speed, jump, and down+B enhancers.

- You can counter the hammering Mario to get some early damage on him, and if you're lucky he'll drop the hammer. The first five or six tries I got him to drop the hammer so I could use it, but the next 20-30 he held onto it, the bastard.

- DK can actually be KO'd somewhat reliably by Marth's forward smash if you camp near the lower platforms on the right side (near where Peach starts).

- Get the stopwatches that appear. They're the only reliable way to chase down Peach.

- Honestly, your best bet is to just hope Peach biffs a recovery and KOs herself, drifting slowly down with her umbrella. That's how I ended up winning.

Hah. They made unlocking characters all fast and easy literally on the day that I gave the game to my bro for his bday. So perfect. He already unlocked a few by himself and seems to be liking the game so far (though a little intimidated as well) . It's his first Smash Bros so I'm really hoping he catches the bug the rest of us have and gets into it.

I seemed to have even better luck with online after the patch on the lag front. That my imagination? Smooth as butter.

I ran into my first real complaint with the game yesterday. There was a level in Adventure Mode where there are heavy winds and you literally CAN NOT beat it without certain spirits equipped. I find that cheap. I was miffed that I couldn't just get gud enough to achieve the victory on my own. :/

Otherwise man, this game is so freaking wonderful. :)

@Hinph ? Did the patch make it faster to unlock characters?
Posted: 12/14/18, 20:57:49
@Zero No, it reduced the CPU difficulty of the challengers.

@nate38@DrFinkelstein When I saw that battle had a power rating of 14,000 I was all like NOPE NOPE NOPE and didn't try it until later once I leveled up my spirits. It only took a couple of tries since I leveled the playing field in that way. My initial idea was to build the Final Smash meter and use that on Peach, but I ended up getting her with POW Blocks since she doesn't try to dodge them.

@Mop it up Oh so for AWESOME players like me who never* lose it didn't change much.

*I lose a lot though.

I didn't even know battles had power levels lolol I just go to whatever I unlock.
Posted: 12/14/18, 22:18:23
@Mop it up

We were getting a new challenger after every regular Smash battle, so they did speed up the unlocking for new players anyway. Maybe that slows down back to normal after you unlock a certain amount though.

@J.K. Riki
The point of that mode is to play with spirits lol.

Are you sure? I think I played the same challenge as you. Tried to brute force it and died.
Posted: 12/14/18, 23:20:30

Yeah, but you can choose to use powerful spirits and make it easier or lesser spirits to make it a challenge. With that level there is not "here is a challenge" because you either use the right spirit or you do not win period no matter what.
Posted: 12/14/18, 23:28:02
@Hinph Oh, really? Interesting. I didn't hear about that, just the difficulty change.

Speaking of the update, I was curious about what would have changed with the characters this early, and people haven't really found anything other than some bug fixes. So that might've been all it was for now.

Good games earlier, Ploot! Sorry for not sticking around longer. My brother and his friend were waiting for me in another arena so I had to go.

Your Ludwig is awesome by the way.
