Meta Knight is not broken, people. He is good at close range, but beyond that, any character can camp him, either with projectiles or just by outpowering him.|
"I'll just get past the projectiles and power moves and pound y-" You think I'll just make a move just like that? No, I'll just wait for you to approach, and you'll have to sooner or later and I don't have to worry about any outside stall penalties. Why would I want to rush somebody who must make up for having no projectiles? I'll just throw potshots to chip at your percentage, and if you rush me, I'll hit you quite a bit, putting you seriously behind.
"Yeah right you can hit me, I can 0 frame attack j00 n00b." Nice try, but even if you do, speed is inherently shallow. You may automatically win several times, but your individual repeated wins have virtually little value. Me, I can just win any one time and it has considerably more value, even without considering Meta Knight is freaking light (good thing if we want to talk Momentum Cancel). Tactics is on my side. I'll just survive your abuse and figure out how to fight back.
"No, I'll just tornado you and stunlock y-" Except I'll just jump over the tornado as soon as I see it come out. And as soon as it finishes, you're open. Even if I still get caught by the tornado, Meta Knight can hardly stop counterattacks.
"Shut up. I'll gimp your a-" Get me off the stage first, and then we'll talk. Even if you do get me off the stage, I can just fight back reliably.
"Infinite Dimensional Cape wi-" Sorry, that bug is so bad that the Smash communities, who haven't banned Icies' deathgrab, have banned IDC.
"I'll just outprioritize you." Except if I focus on outprioritizing you, I might as well have a shallow playstyle. Last time somebody tried being a darwinist, they got shot dead by an anti-hero for the atrocities they commited, including the nuking of a good commander.
So there you have it. Any more points for me to counter?
