      Omg! Out today??

      Also, I'm SUPER GLAD they are adding more functionality to Battle Arena. Being able to change match rules was sorely needed.

        Also, buffing K Rool is some serious WTF-sauce right there. Like, yeah K Rool isn't popular in the tournament scene but that doesn't mean he's under-powered. Wtf.

          He just kinda stinks in 1v1.

            Like, I'm merely average at a typical GSP floating anywhere from 2mil to 3mil but I regularly play against K Rool with a friend and fighting against K Rool specifically is like taking on a final boss fight, god dayum.

            Maybe at the highest level of play. K. Rool has representation at my Smash local and plenty online.

            I am curious what you think of Terry, I worry that his recovery is not great...

              At home now trying him out in Classic Mode.

              What does the 'KO' flashing mean near his percent?

              Why is his neutral b so bad? Is there a trick to it?

              His down b seems similar to Incineroar's up special. Is there anything else to it?

                The flashing GO! means you are damaged enough to pull your Super Special Moves which can only be done with command input and special. His neutral B is stronger if you command input it just like Ryu. Most of their specials have a command input version that is slower to input but has a stronger effect. Definitely watch some of the Nintendo Direct, Sakurai explains it all pretty well.

        can you invite your friends into your battle arena in game yet or no

          November 6, 2019 11:44 AM

          Uhhh not 100% sure what you mean but I think the answer is "No"

            November 6, 2019 11:52 AM

            like i just want to be able to set up an arena in smash bros and send a friend a game invite without having to text them or do some other out of game/console type thing to ask if they want to play a game

              November 6, 2019 11:58 AM

              Yeah that's a negative, ghost rider.

              Sucks, I know.

              Not being able to directly join a friend is a really dumb decision.

      If the Twitch channel is free this morning/afternoon, maybe I should stream some terrible Smash play with Terry.

        I've been watching the battle anime Kengen Ashura lately and reading Scooby and Shag and now I want a Smash Bros TV anime in that fashion. (But that would never happen)

          Archie vs Predator, Jughead: the Hunger vs. Vampironica, Hong Kong Phooey & Black Lightning, Marvin The Martian & Martian Manhunter, Huckleberry Hound & Green Lantern, Yogi Bear & Deathstroke, Top Cat & Superman, Nightwing & Magilla Gorilla are all real things which were published.
          Also, Snagglepuss is now openly gay, though nothing has been said about Huckleberry or Quick Draw McGraw.

      I love that the Smash Direct was basically Sakurai giving a 45 minute lecture on SNK games
