How is no combos a good thing? That makes it so defence and camping is the only option. Due to the lack of combos, nothing can be gained by approaching someone. And with the broken defensive options, you'll only get destroyed if you try. The only way to win consistently is camping. Brawl's engine is just broken in that way.
The skill in this game is at a minimum; tech skill flat out doesn't exist. You trade hits and that's it. That's the best you can hope for. Brawl is a shallow, noob-friendly game where skill is at a minimum. A beginer player could even take a stock or two away from a skilled player. That should not be happening. This is the only fighting where that shit does happen. I have no problem destroying people in other fighting games, but it's impossible in this game.
Basically what I said before--you can memorize button combos in other games, but that hardly equates to skill.
With regard to Brawl requiring 'no skill', that's just incorrect. Lets use your example of trying to approach someone who won't move. Let's say our camper is Ike, and our 'camped' is Mario. Mario clearly can't just run up and attack, as he'd get side-smashed into oblivion. Here are just some of his options:
-Make like he's running in to attack, but stop just in front of the side-smash, giving him an opportunity to strike while Ike recovers.
-Roll behind Ike or jump over him and force Ike to react (move) quickly or risk getting smashed himself.
-If Ike is on a platform, get him from underneath with an Up-B Smash attack.
-Hit him with a fireball, which will either flinch him momentarily, leaving him open, or force him to move.
-Grab a beam sword, bat, or other item and shoot or throw it at him.
-When Ike attempts a smash attack, use Mario's cape to turn him around, leaving him vulnerable.
There--off the top of my head, I just listed SIX things you could do in that situation. If I weren't at work I'd do more. Failure?
