1. Barrier at full health.
2. Own a stage.
3. Run from most fights.
4. Walk around with a sniper out.
5. Have 2 favourite sensor places.
6. Always carry a machine gun.
7. Pick your character in your head before the stage is picked.
8. Never roll.
9. Fight like you're invincible.

Simp4 was designed for Landmasters and Arwings, it works... to an extent... cause there's plenty of cover and items.

And no, Simp 4 does not work. Sorry. I tried it once, then vowed I would never play it again.

i disagree with a lot of these things but that's the way SFA rolls lol

i'll give you 7:

always move
the most important technical skill is being able to hit B faster than bullets travel
this game is offensive; learn to push
don't be afraid of enemy barriers
dodge out of confidence, not out of fear
shoot out of confidence, not out of desperation
sometimes you will lose

1, 3, 7, 8 but i know that's just the way we each play and there would be really no point in arguing about 'em (particularly 7 and Cool

e: rather, i'm down with popping bar at full health if you're using it to make a push or in other specific scenarios, i just think delaying popping as long as possible is a viable strat most of the time

Sometimes.

These days I'd rather go full aggro and never get fashed.

I agree to an extent, but don't you think it could be kinda risky when the enemy could just pull out an HL and blast you to the moon? It's all situational but make a mistake and you've wasted a ton of EHP.

i think i've played like 6? years

1: homing launchers are overpowered pieces of shit
2: missile launchers are even worse and i wish they were removed from the game
3: aparoid city is the worst stage ever and should be red
4: i should probably just use charged blaster and the overpowered weapons because i never kill anyone with anything else
5: Peppy is the best* especially on aparoid city
6: Peppy is actually the worst character ever in 2v2's

*when Slippy isn't an option

Allow me to create my list based on stealing from others and my own experiences:

1. Own a stage.
2. Always move
3. Homing launchers are overpowered pieces of shit
4. Aparoid city is the worst stage ever and should be red
5. I am only good at one thing: Sniping Krystal. Embrace your strength(s)
6. Fashing people and snipes are the most amazing feeling. Getting double fashed is the worst.

as i see it you either

1. bar in order to stop yourself from dying (defensive)
2. bar in order to make a push uninterrupted (offensive)

in case 2 it just depends on when you push and how likely you are to kill your opponent in that push

in case 1 it's entirely up to you to determine when you're going to die and different people for sure have different standards of what constitutes "risky" and what doesn't. honestly i think it's just a matter of judgement and part of being good at barriers is knowing when to make the call that the risk is too high

The closest I come to owning a stage is Simp 3. I don't own a stage, but I see the value in it.

What is Fash?
1.Go hard with a sniper, especially with stealth or barrier
2.Make use of every weapon you have
3.ML is OP
4.Gatling + barrier= kill (usually when you have the faster character)
5.Don't SD on Zoness
6.Know how to dodge HL
7.Go kamikaze sometimes
Only been playing six years but I had to add the last one haha

I've been playing the game since launch, so that's like 9 years I think?
1. Sometimes it's better to run than to fight.
2. Pods are next to worthless on most maps.
3. There is no fall damage.
4. I'm very good at sniping.
5. I'm very bad at sniping.
6. Dual stick works very well for me.
7. Speed is the essence of war.
8. Always plan 2 steps ahead of yourself.
9. Uzzdrops can be very useful.
