What is wavedashing?
No, im not talking about this sliding.
Im talking about that :
In this video, ike can do any combo without any delay. I dont like that, normally when people use a strong attack, it has a longer delay. A rule in any fight.
Mind you, there's a plethora of ways to escape a combo in P:M, or otherwise shorten it. My use of the word "guaranteed" is relatively improper since very little in any Smash game is truly guaranteed. DI, super armor, teching, clanking... there's almost always a way t' escape a combo; 'specially if they're extended. And there's always a way to minimize damage.

Aye, literally every single character in Project: M receives improvements. One'a the main goals of P:M's developers is to promote balance; something no Smash game has implemented very well previous. 'Specially not Brawl.
I didn't state anythin' to do with my personal preferences towards fighting games, t'was nothin' but fact there. Heavy characters are not inherently broken (and are typically less viable in most games). Hitstun in Brawl is highly decreased in comparison to old Smash Bros. games. My use of the word "guaranteed" was indeed improper... ... ....
Uncounterable combos are very much in Brawl... and they're the worst kind: 100% inescapable. You can't DI, abuse super armor or anythin' to escape 'em, unlike in Project: M. King Dedede and Ice Climbers can do infinite throws. Many other characters, such as Falco and Kirby have guaranteed grab combos until a certain damage percentage. IIRC Falco can rack up a guaranteed 40% damage with his D-throw. There're plenty of other infinites as well, like Lucas' D-tilt lock.
Also, if a combo can be countered, it's no longer a combo. Hence why in other fighting games that list the number'a hits in a combo will cease said list once an opponent gets out of hitstun and has the possibility to counterattack. By definition, a combo is a string of hits where an opponent has no possibility of reacting 'cause they're stuck in hitstun.
Im not against hitstun, but im against long hitstun.
