Why not sign up for a (free) account?
@HammerLord dedede lost alot of what made him fun in brawl imo (namely throwing waddle dees around and watching them get clobbered.)

Anyone free to play a few Smash matches? I'm trying to learn Wii Fit Trainer.

A small price to pay for the priceless faces he makes now.

As much as I miss those roly poly minions, the new Gordo toss is so much more useful.

Dedede got a lot of changes to his normals and aerials, too. I think I preferred what he had in Brawl overall, but it's still a fun set.

@nate38 debatable, the waddles couldn't be reflected.

So I still need help on Cruel Smash with 4 kills... any suggestions? I've tried Shulk but can't seem to activate his counter. Kirby is slow and inconsistent. I suck with Little Mac. Ike managed 2 kills but it's still really hard. Any easy tricks?

Get either Kirby or King Dedede, inhale and then spit out baddies just barely off Battlefield. Their recovery is awful, and they won't chase you so much off-stage, so it's a strategy safe enough for the amount of kills you need. I remember watching a guide to this on GameXplain.


Here it is:

Hope it helps!

I just used Marth's counter. Didn't have too much trouble with it--might be up to luck. Try spamming the move and hoping that they attack you at the right time.

They always seem to be able to jump back up though. That video makes it look way easier than it's been for me. Is Kirby how you did it?


I've used Ike's counter to nab 3 kills... think Marth's is better?
10/20/14, 03:00   

I actually haven't even played as Ike yet. It's worth a shot.

Dunno if you're a Ness user, but I got 8 KOs by jumping offstage and PK Thunder-ing myself into opponents over and over again. It did take several tries to get that many though.

EDIT: Crud, you get a notification for getting 10 KOs? I might have to go for that next...

You do? I thought it was just 2 and 4 for this game.
10/20/14, 03:44   
So... which do you think will happen first

A) Nintendo releases a Smash Bros. game where Ganondorf has his own moveset?


B) Nintendo releases a Smash Bros. game where Ganondorf doesn't suck.

As a matter of fact, I have never tried it with Kirby before. Just did it with him and it took me some 20 attempts, but I just did precisely 10 KOs, using the method. The secret to doing this with Kirby is to use the Final Cutter constantly to get a hold on the ledge without the edge-guarding chaos. Also, you need to be careful, because even when the Mii Fighter is out of jumps, it may still try shuffle in the air to footstool you to death.
My current record is 16 KOs with King Dedede.

Using counter is probably easier, but the inhaling trick the way I did it.

This is totally anecdotal, but has anyone else noticed that certain stages are more likely to lag online? For me, it seems like stages where the background frequently scrolls or changes stutter more frequently. Like in my matches with Hero_Of_Hyrule yesterday, the Spirit Tracks and PictoChat stages (FD versions) were a lot more stuttery than our other matches. Anyone else noticing this?

I've only played online once. Did "ok" I guess. Still annoys me that there is no way to track your record unless you only play the boring stages. I think I won more than I lost but Nintendo doesn't want me to know if I did or not for some reason.

That ruins the fun for some people (me included). So it would be nice, I guess, if there was a ranked fun mode, but scoring the regular mode would cause many off us to not play online any more.

The only stage that causes major slowdown for me is Find Mii, and that's ONLY when playing locally. Very strange.

That said, I'd love for there to be a 1 vs. 1 "For Fun" mode. I love 1 vs. 1 and I like items and fun stages.
Unfortunately, all my 1v1 action has to be on itemless FD stages. Boo.

I haven't seen any stages that suffer from more stutter than others. Most of my matches have been pretty smooth.

Also, I haven't had ANY lag whatsoever when playing locally. How is that even possible? It's local, the 3DSeseseseses are right next to each other!

@GameDadGrant I noticed a few stutters in the demo when we had 4-player brawls, but it was maybe two or three hitches in a few hours of play.
