Welcome back, everyone! There hasn't been time for me to do any special Halloween mods for Rebuffed, but there's an update nonetheless! It's your run-of-the-mill patch notes buffing and nerfing characters. There's also some costumes added to Mega Man and Mario. So with that, enjoy!
Have you ever wanted to see what Smash 4 would have been like if everyone was loads better than they are now?
Well ladies and gentlemen, you've come to the right place.
What is Smash Rebuffed? Why should I play it?
This mod increases the viability of every single character and transforms their normal moveset into deadly assets. Every fighter is marginally better than they were in vanilla, and it's for these reasons:
A. Fighters have new twists and tricks that make them different from their vanilla counterpart to keep the gameplay fresh and fun for all types of players.
B. Faster pacing and more effective combo game while not deriving from any previous Smash game in particular.
C. Large amounts of overhauls and quality of life changes to increase the replay value of the game (hitstun, shield changes, knockback decay, tweaking of gameplay elements that would normally stagnate a normal match).
This moveset mod favors offensive gameplay a lot, promoting the usage of the heavily improved frame data to take advantage of the fight! If you want to win, you gotta give it your all! Pretty awesome stuff, right?
Cool! What should I download to get started?
The unpacked version of Smash Rebuffed is included in the normal download. A link containing the packed version is available in the alternate download location. A build for EU users is there as well, though these take some time to be made. If you just want to drag and drop the mod and play immediately, we suggest getting the packed version. If you want to add some elements to your own personal modpack, feel free to get the unpacked version.
The following link is a Dropbox folder that contains all of the patch update changelogs from the initial release to the current version. Check every time an update occurs. There will always be a changelog for each update.

Smash Rebuffed is a fun and exciting gameplay mod; let's keep improving on it for the most optimal experience possible!
Just tried this today, and this is the most fun I've had playing Smash in a long, long time. I mean, longer than Brawl long. Project M just didn't do it for me, Brawl-, Brawl+ were both very unbalanced and felt same-y. This is the most fun I've had since playing Melee as a kid, and that means a lot to me. Thank you.
On a side note, CPU lv.9 Falcon is soooooo damn hard, omg. I haven't even gotten the guts to fight Ness yet. Doesn't help that I main Link, though... Trying to learn Zsamus and her new Side B mechanics are so fun to combo with!
This might be dumb and stubbed to ask, but I'm just wondering if you are making a Lite version of this mod with less custom costumes and stages so it can run on smaller SD cards.
I'm asking this because I only have a 2GB SD card and the whole mudpack can't fit on it. But, this mod looks amazing and I really want to try it out! You don't have to if you don't want to, but if you do that would make me very happy.
