Notes -

HUGE thanks to A1rPun for this, he got all of the gifs and helped me with compiling the combos.  

Not all gifs are done yet, but pretty much everything else is.

I think this guide will be incredibly usefull for technical CC players, and I honestly didn't know a lot of these tricks and tips. Great job setting all these guides up, they have helped me (and will soon help many, many, many other people). (Roughly,) how long does it take to set one of these guides up?

This one took about 25 minutes to do all the writing and formatting, you can ask A1rPun how long the gifs took. Thanks for letting me know that this is actually helpful :) They usually take an hour or more though D:  This is definitely a more technical guide than the others so far, but I'm thinking of doing characters/arenas next because that is simple and not super thought out.

 

There are definitely some really old tricks [2009ish] that have died out in the community, but it will take a rediscovery at this point to get them back into circulation.

Awesome guide Hazard. Glad I could provide some info and making the gifs was very fun. Took me about 1 1/2 hour to make them. Not including the time spend getting the blue knight to level 50 ;)

I think this guide will grow over time and help alot of players.

All you can quaff uses three buttons, you need to alternate between X and Y, and upon completing a piece of food you need to hit A.

Yeah, I knew that, I was just wondering what he means as 'spam all four buttons for an easy win.' OOOOoooohhh, I know what he means, it's when you hit someone and they hit you, and it tells you to spam X, ok, I get it now. :-P

That's what I'm going for, thanks again for all the help :)

 

 

I'm thinking that tomorrow I can embed links to the gifs in the name of the moves/combos.

Holy cow! Awesome job! You cover pretty much everything I can think of! There's nothing I can really say that is wrong with this guide at all!

 

I honestly wish I could like the post twice the guide is so good. Great job, Hazard.

Thank you!  The technical guides like these are much easier to make than the mostly aesthetic ones because I don't have to add/upload any pictures and edit them into the posts.  If you ever remember any combos be sure to let me know, but I'm pretty sure that I have every existing technique in here.
