Marth Tech: L-Cancel
Description / How To Perform
L-Cancelling, which stands for "Lag Cancelling", is a technique that halves the duration of landing-lag when landing during aerial attacks. To L-Cancel an aerial attack you must press a shield button at most 7 frames before you hit the ground.
L-Cancelling only works for "normal" aerial attacks, and wont affect any b-moves. For improving both your general offensive speed, as well as your safety upon landing after aerials, every one of your aerials should be L-Cancelled whenever possible.
Usefulness: (Essential Skill)
If an attack is Auto-Cancelled an L-Cancel will have no effect, and can potentially cause an accidental airdodge.
