Good. Do people still do that thing in Smash 4 where they all taunt constantly and gang up on anyone who attacks them?

No proof whatsoever though. Not trusting anything unless there's proof.

Taunting in smash is the equivalent to running a touch down in and dropping the ball at the one yard line prematurely

Taunt parties. Apparently thats a thing that really happened in the joke For Fun mode though (where all of the players with atrocious connections would flock)

Does competitive smash get that upset over taunts?

I swear, for a guy who has played every single smash bros I have absolutely no fucking clue what the deal is with the Smash community.

It has nothing to do with competitive Smash what are you smoking

The problem it's probably addressing is the idea of "taunt parties", a thing that started in Brawl where people just spam taunt in online free for alls non stop and then gang up on anyone who tries to actually fight. It became so pervasive in Brawl that you basically couldn't play a free for all online because the taunt party dudes were so focused on griefing everyone who tried. It still existed in Smash 4, albeit to a lesser extent since For Glory exists to ensure actual 1v1 gameplay would be an option still, but that doesn't help people who don't like the no items/FD only ruleset.

It probably won't work so well because people will just find some other way to grief, but that's likely what they're trying to stop.

I don't get how people play Smash online. If you're used to local play any sort of lag screws up your timing and you can't properly react to stuff if it's bad enough

I assumed it had something to do with competitive because one of the first posts said they want everyone to play pro.

Ah see the mistake was believing something written on GameFAQs. Everything on here is fake, especially the true stuff.
