    I've seen tiers defied. A prime example is the best sc2 player in the world. He was a french player who used nightmare (nightmare had very slow moves, but his pay off (damage) was huge). Also, the kid took an otherwise slow and easily readable character and turned him into something distinct. I think tiers are useful in looking at characters superficially, but you can work with someone who is low tier and really push the bounds of what is expected of them.

    I did not know that. This makes me very happy since Nightmare is my favorite character.

    Woah woah woah. We passed the competitive phase and moved back into character talk. You can't start discussing pokemon!

    You're screwing up the order of the thread!

    We're going to start talking about tiers and competitive battling in pokemon now.

    They exist.

    No items.

    Specsmence only.

    Final Destination.
    OBJECTION!

    Specsmence is impossible if there are no items. This is a clear contradiction!

    On the note of tiers, screw what everyone else thinks, Ike is going to be awesome.

    This is the same shit that happens in pokemon. When RSE came out, hardcores bitched that everything died too fast thanks to EVs and it was just all attack attack attack and no strategy. RSE had one of the most balanced metagames ever.

    Brawl will be as deep and complex as Melee.

    I always worry about this kind of thing - it seems like balance is extremely hard to accomplish since popular strategies can be things the developers never even thought of.

    I suppose I can try to help move things along. Ahem.

    Man, if it wasn't for damn casuals, Sakurai could have made Brawl without wasting his time on these items, assist trophies, and final smashes which are just going to be turned off anyways (the way it ought to be played). Then by December it'd be out of beta and releasing on time. First wavedashing's gone then the delay. They ruin everything.

    Yeah I've been pretty pumped to try Diddy since he was announced. Definitely going to be the first character I try.

    Shut up you elitist prick, you don't know anything. I can't believe you're trying to tell me how the game is meant to be played and can only be played that way. Damnit, Sakurai is going to make sure that people like you cant turn off smash balls, and I have proof since characters like Wario and Diddy generate items. Hes doing that just so even if you want to turn off items, you cant! HAHA!!

    True. I think players of both games eventually have a greater understanding of the game than the developers do, but my main point I was trying to make is making rash judgments about the game so early on is silly.

    Yeah I've been pretty pumped to try Diddy since he was announced. Definitely going to be the first character I try.

    Yeah. If reports are to be believed, he has excellent aerial game and that forward B sounds hilarious. Here is an excerpt:
    OverB = My fav move in the game so far. Like Champ said, you leap forward, not too far, about 3 of his body lengths distance. If you press attack again before you land/reach an opponent, Diddy sticks out his leg for a sex kick, more or less, which I haven't found to be really useful at all yet, as its knock back is horrid. If you don't press anything, you automatically jump and latch onto your opponent's face (can't be blocked). From there I believe the only thing you can do is press the attack button, twice. Diddy will "hump", as Champ so eloquently put it, his/her grill twice, then kick off springboard-style automatically (no throw input required as was 1st thought), sending your opponent backwards and slightly downwards, but I believe that be influenced by DI. Can be used to recover, acting like Fox/Falco's overB, but not nearly as far. You're also immobile afterwards if used in the air till you hit the ground. One of my 1st matches I was playing against MikeHaze. He knocked me off the edge and went off to edgegaurd me as I was recovering. I overB'd, caught him in midair, raped his face as I was falling, then kick off at the last second, spiking him and then using my upB to make it back. Basically similar to Kirby's swallow kill, but a lot kooler and funnier looking. It caused quite an uproar.

    Oh, also apparently Diddy has some of the best throws in the game as well, with a Forward throw that is reported to be the best throw in the game (in terms of knockback) of the characters shown thus far



    ALSO, another diddy player says you can actually input a direction while doing the Forward B to specify the direction you want to toss them, but I cannot confirm the accuracy of this statement

    regardless, fun as hell

    Yes, if you look in http://www.gametrailers.com/player/26643.html you can see him use it at 1:22 but I cannot find where he actually hits with it, let me view it again (maybe I was mistaken)

    i think some people excel at certain characters. just because you're good at a low tier doesn't mean you will be with a high tier. i know a guy that dominates with bowser. he's a terrific smasher, but he can't hold a candle to my sheik with his. also, some lower tier characters have some advantages over high tier, like link vs. marth. nightmare is a BEAST btw
