I heard that the game keeps track of the last 10 attacks you made (since you were spawned). This list of maximal size 10 seems to influence to damage a certain attack does. This forces the players to use diversity because using the same attack move all the time will not deliver as much damage.
However, how does this really work? I see three sub-questions to this:
- Is a certain move (e.g. Up+B) represented maximally once in the list, or will every time it is executed push it onto the list (i.e. has the list a set characteristic or not?)
More to the point, if I execute the same move 10 times, will all other moves be purged?
- When are attack moves different? If I hit different keys? What if I hit A on the ground and then once while in mid-air. Are these two different items or just one (the relevance of this distinction depends on the answer to question 1)?
- When does an attack count towards the list? If I actually hit an opponent? What if I miss entirely? What if I hit a shield?
