    @Duffking I know this is an old post, but all fighters use p2p, not dedicated servers, it adds an extra unnecessary packing layer.

    If they didn't cheap out on the dock and included an ethernet port, you could also have included a 'filter by connection type' option.

    If we have had to suffer two years of that Brexit thread title, we can cope with this.

    😂 I love it mate. Fun combat, loads to do, loads of enjoyable nostalgia and games history, a surprisingly deep combat system.

    Just go look at the tutorial and enjoy.

    There are some adventure mode battles that are soooooooooo irritating. Particularly the ones with reinforcements, where it's literally 1 versus 4 in about 10 seconds. I mean, I'm shit at the game, but I can't imagine ever being good enough to be able to reliably handle 4 people attacking you (and only you) at the same time.

    @Mola_Ram the characters with counters tend to work quite well - marth etc. You can just run into them and down b and watch them go flying.

    @Mola_Ram

    Use the Ice Climbers side special, it murders almost everything. Or superarmour Bowser.

    I don't know if this is now basically the official thread for the game or not.

    But fucking hell, the music in this game is soooooooooooo gooooooooood. Pushes all of the nostalgia buttons.

    I find the single player super fun, the map mode in Spirits brings so much to the game. It's addictive unlocking the areas and hunting spirits. Pure quality - not a single bug to be found.

    Not sure if I could ever go to online, but so far it's a blast!

    I quite like the title. It's a bit like on Reddit or resetera where you can't tell if a hot take is serious or satire.

    why? the title is in the name, he used proper grammar. Not sure what could be offensive about the title.

    How is it unplayable ? Im playing it right now....What happens when it isn't a mess or laggy......Every other thread about a game is just that game name not some subjective title which includes that game name. Not that bothered as this Smash thread is 1000 times less populated than where I normally go for posts about Smash...

    @ghearoid if it's on era then that's easy, it's always a hot take as satire is banned

    Is it true you can actually smell the body odour of Smashers through your TV on some high speed connections?

    Hopefully they patch it out. Maybe that's what's causing the lag?

    Really makes you stink.

    I have reached 100% on WoL. Pauline was easily the hardest fight.
