sheik basically has no end lag on anything ever so its really hard for me to get kills, the only time I really could kill you was when you up b'd onto the stage, if you just go to the ledge and get up normally it'll be heaps fucked trying to get kills on you and you'll do heaps better.
mmm that depends on the situation, sometimes grab if they are right in front and you can kill or combo off grab, sometimes ftilt if you want to get them in an ftilt lock, if they are behind you probably a nair or bair out of shield. it really depends.
NSW is putting together a crew to challenge VIC but it'll probably be only 4 or 5 players, also its not confirmed to happen yet. Will there be smash 4 setups at the venue on friday during project melbourne, if so thats probably a good time to get crews and money matches done
would it make you feel worse if I said I suck at online play, its totally different from offline, so much stuff I usually do doesnt work.
if you want to play defensive either pick up a viable defensive character, which is pretty much just rosalina or MAYBE megaman, or play a different style of defensive that revolves around movement. It might seem like rushdown to you, but most of the time I am dancing around you waiting for you to act first and then I punish, thats a wierd defensive style that uses movement and baiting more than zoning. Fox and sheik are the best at that style I think.
