This isn't only about who your favorite is, but who you think has the edge in SSBB.

According to the tier lists worked out by the professional Brawl players, Falco is at the top with a fourth rating of all the characters in the game, with Fox in at number 20 and Wolf at 22. And I can believe that it is that way.

Wolf is one of my mains on Brawl, a huge step up in speed from Bowser/Ganondorf, which were my mains in Meele, and I have no trouble kicking the backsides of any lvl. 9 CPU with him. Even Metaknight is fair game.

There are in fact only two characters I tend to struggle with, and that is Falco and Fox. It seems that no matter what style and technique I adapt to take them on pays of properly, and I ususally ends up with a 50/50 winstreak against Fox, and a 55/45 against Falco in his favor. I've played against another Wolf at lvl. 9 on a couple of ocasions, and he is usually fair game.

I've naturally tried playing as them both as well, like all the characters in the game. But there is no way I play as good with them as I do with Wolf. His sligthly slower, but more powerfull fighting style is more up my street.

So, for playing against, I find Falco to be the best, closely trailed by Fox. But for playing as, Wolf is the way to go for me.

So, what do you think?

You're probably most interested in having Krystal playable I guess. :lol:

Don't you worry, I'm quite confident she'll be in the next game. Falco and Wolf had been requested all since the first came out, and with those now inn, if there is going to be another SF character, it is going to be Krystal.

To make the time pass however. One of our new members is busy at work importing Krystal into Brawl and getting her to work properly. You should check it out.

Falco. And I don't say that because he's my fav. Falco is pretty balanced. He moves faster than Wolf and hits harder than Fox. He's pretty much the the middle man, and has a step up on both Fox and Wolf.

Tell me about it. :lol: He often gets in 40-50 % on me before I land a single hit on him. He is unbelivable fast to rack up the damage, and ain't to shabby at delivering the KO's when it's high enough either.

Against the CPU, spamming smashes work quite well. But I dread the moment I meet a human player with a lot of experience with him. Highly unlikely tough, my internet is to slow to play online, and my little brother has taken to Ike as his main, understandably as he is great fun to play as.

Ohh, that will be fine. Since I can't play online, that would have to be some kind of meeting in person. And I get very violent when I loose in games. :lol:

I've taken a lot of sparring sessions now, and is starting to figure out Falcos strenght and weaknesses now, and capitalising on them. I think I've gotten the winning streak down to about 60/40 in my favor. I'll try to get it up to 80/20 before I turn to Fox and start "analyzing" him.

As you can see on my sig, Falco is my second best/fav. character I use. That's because he has stuff like:

- Good Airial moves

- good spikes

- okay to good Agile movement and moves

Falco - Fox clone

So you really can't judge them.

In Meele he was. But there is a huge difference between how they play in Brawl. That should be clear to everyone who have played the game.

Sure you don't mean Tomas? Jack Thorn is the name of his fan character/fursona if I'm correct. Unless that's his username on annother forum.

A pleassure. I know you didn't like the tought of Wolf taking Krystals spot. But he had allready had to sit out Meele, and I know for a fact there are a lot of people who are glad he finally got in.

If they do decide to include yet another SF character in the next game, it can't be any other than Krystal. She's by far the most requested of the SF characters, and neither Peppy, Slippy, Panther or Leon would make as interesting characters as she.

How are they different? Also it's "melee", may-lay.

I've played melee and brawl and they seem the same to me.

You have to take into account tthat he's not from a english speaking country... something that seems to make him that much better of a person to be around.

... Sure you just didn't play SSBM twice? No one could ever mistake Falco and Fox for being identical clones to each other in Brawl. They shared some special moves, but they was excecuted completely different from each other, and the way they fight without specials... Totally different.

thier movesets are very similar ,but their attacks are very diffrent fox's blaster does little damage while Falco's does a lot more.

I'm a smash bros oldie, and I have always skipped using fox and falco, they just didn't fit on my gamestyle. However, on Brawl, I use wolf mostly for 1vs1 battles. Instead of random speed and just tapping the control stick, he actually has some decent ground combos and a lot of aerial movements, but that's just me.

Falco is... Easily. His illusion is the fastest and also spikes. He has a 0-50% chain grab. His blaster is the best of the three imo.

Fox is my main, i can't stand the slow characters. After all the online games I have played with so called 'profesional' brawlers if Fox fails... Falco doesn't :P

Arrr, I totally have to do a face off with you online sometimes, Falco is by far better, between wolf and Fox, it's hard to say, my friend plays wolf I Mian Fox, but as wolf, he seemed to play a lot of defense, while I went offense.

if there is one thing i cant stand in all of smashdom, its FUCKING CHAINGRABBING!!!!

i play against a friend of mine, who albiet has a lot in common with falco XD the instant i start whooping his ass he chaingrabs me and spikes me off the edge, totally unfair...

it makes me miss melee where you can shine em after you grab em...

i go into a bit of a rage, but i never resort to violence or anything, but there are some moments..... my friend is a bit of a Douchebag like that.... his wolf is also suprisingly cheap...

and thats why i play fox, he is the most balanced of the 3, but i can do some pretty bad things with fox too.. shine spiking is the most invigorating feeling ive ever felt in brawl XD

then again ive played fox since smash 64, so im going with the OC :cool:

If you play enough brawl, You will soon figure out that chain grabbing isn't that cheap or powerful. Sooner or later, you HAVE to be able to make a comeback afterwards. About the spike, You can just dodge it. I'm suprised your friend actually spikes you after the chain grab. A full chain grab does up to 50% --- 68% if their lucky/skillful. That should not be enough to spike you.
