incineroar is placed pretty low on that list for a character who looks at least decent but maybe they have a different priority meta or maybe the people who made it do

 

that's always something i find pretty interesting honestly: regional meta differences. like in previous seasons league where chinese teams had a rep for playing fast and aggressive. now it's less regional and more team-based styles which is also neat and probably a better analogue to the smash scene, but i'm curious if incineroar's placement reflects a meta difference like that or if he's just gotten worse in everyone else's eyes while i took a break

Basically anything that isn't going to just be Incest Simulator: the Game would be a massive improvement already . Can't help but feel like having a created character who isn't the main character would be smart, too, if there's an avatar again. Robin was OK but super bland and Corrin only avoided being bland by being the dumbest person in the entire universe. If they can't write a compelling created character then they shouldn't take up so much focus. A step back from waifu simulation would be nice too but if that's what it takes to keep getting games localized I don't hate it as much as the other weird stuff.

Speaking of matchups you lose straight up, I might just be bad but I played incineroar unto my friend's corrin yesterday and enjoyed a living hell. Outranged and outsped and outprioritied. Could just be because that was my first match against another player but it had me reconsidering playing the wrasslecat for a while. Initial thoughts on Roy and Cloud are that they seem good but I'm not a fan of their up tilt personally. Same with marth's. The range on it just feels too limited compared to what I'm used to.

 

 

 

edit:

started to watch this video for incineroar, it's kinda useful for me:

Incineroar is fun as hell.

 

That said, I've always kinda favored the slower but hard hitting types because fast characters are too fuckin fast. Idk what's really good or viable right now but in the only two tier lists I've seen Inineroar is consistently mediocre, which is my jam. I'm not necessarily competitive or anything since I'm more about how a character feels to play, but I prefer the character I like to at least be decent.

 

Besides, we're in the very early days so who knows how the metal will develop. As long as he doesn't drop into awful tier, I can see myself comfortably focusing on Incineroar. I do feel like I can get punished super easily though, but I guess that's the tradeoff for how hard he hits.

 

I've never been much of a person to try maining things, honestly, b/c I get bored pretty quickly, but I guess one of the good things about smash ultimate is that there are roughly four million characters and I've only unlocked like half of them.

 

Other than Incineroar, characters-wise, I also never got a chance to play cloud in 4 so I'm kinda enjoying him now.
