How do you play Smash?
« on: June 03, 2016, 04:30:02 PM »
What is your preferred way to Smash?

I usually set two or three stock and turn off the items. But occasionally, I'll turn on Pokéballs and have a Pokémon battle with my opponent. I especially enjoy doing this on Pokémon Stadium or Pokémon Stadium 2.

3 or 4 stocks, low or no items (Usually low when I'm playing by myself)

No, you'd be a filthy casual if you played Time mode.

I play with my friends, items off because they're annoying, and 3 stocks.

I feel like Baby Luigi and I are the total antithesis to how a lot of people play Smash.

People should play against 7 computer players in one team in a timed match, all with Team Attack on and -2 SD penalty. It's hilarious how much minus points they can get. I don't think you even have to get any KOs to win there, you can just stand there and jump around.

Usually, timed matches (generally ~5 minutes) with low items. I don't find it fun to sit out of a stock match and just watch everyone else play.

I also think 8-player Smash works better as timed, not stock, particularly its free-for-all. Or Free-For-Alls in general. There is just too many stuff going on and you can't really afford to play like a coward as how timed matches do in 1 v 1s.

Melee: 4 players, 4 stock, no items.

Brawl: 4 players, usually timed, all items, maybe throw in some Special Smash.

Project M: 2-4-players, 4 stocks, no items.

Smash 4: 2 players, 2-3 stock, no items OR 4-or more, items or no items, timed.

It varies so much.

I play Melee competitively. 2 players, 4 stocks, no items, 8 minute timer. Battlefield, Yoshi's Story, Dreamland, Fountain of Dreams, Final Destination, and Pokemon Stadium only. Doubles with friendly fire on. Believe it or not, it's more than a "Fox only, FD only" meme.

I always wonder why Smash 4 is generally 2 stocks and Melee is 4 stocks. I'm guessing that Melee is more aggressive/Smash 4 is more defensive and more forgiving?
