I got teabagged the most in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate when I was trying to get Sonic into Elite Smash

If you're playing Sonic online in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, then you probably aren't very popular with most opponents. I recently found this out for myself while attempting to get Sonic into Elite Smash.

By this point, I've already managed to get most of the roster into Elite Smash. For some characters, this has proven to be a somewhat difficult task while others have been relatively easy. Much to my amusement, I found that opponents, once they've secured a lead, were much more likely to teabag against my Sonic than against other characters I've used.

Dragon Ball FighterZ's next character, Super Baby 2, is slated to launch tomorrow for FighterZ Pass 3 holders, but it appears some players from certain parts of the world (New Zealand and Japan, it seems) have already got their hands on the newcomer.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features many iconic video game heroes, but villains tend to be less common by comparison. This makes the addition of characters like Ganondorf, Bowser, Ridley, King K. Rool, Wolf and Wario feel particularly unique within the game's 83-fighter roster.

5 Street Fighter 5 characters who have relatively balanced risk vs. reward

In our endeavors to try to express our hopes for what next comes down the pike, both in terms of Street Fighter 5's final chapters and the beginnings of Street Fighter 6, we frequently point out a lot of the negatives we want to see changed. That's definitely a necessary piece of the equation, but you also want to encourage the continuation of what's currently working.
