Hello There!

I was hoping to get some tips to use Daisy.

This community is primarily Funky Kong-Flame Runner and it is easy to see why (not going to go into that right now). Though this is the case, I've always enjoyed using Daisy-Mach more. I found this character combo more fun to control. That being said, I still do not know how to control it efficiently.

That is why I have come here.

If you may allow it, I would appreciate some tips for using Daisy.
And to get it out of the way, I am not really looking for comments that reply with time trials, or experience.
What I am looking for are things that specifically apply to mach bike.

Now, since that is taken care of, I would encourage you to post your game play tips under this thread.
I'm sorry if this sounds too desperate or nooby, but I would be quite thankful for anybody who responds.
(side note: Please no hate, I would like it if things were kept constructive and positive.)

i know you said don't say time trials and experience, but uh, that's gonna be your main way of learning.

hop in some worldwides with daisy, your main focus at first is going to be learning to control getting bumped. that's daisy's main flaw, and the thing that sets a great daisy user (javo, rusoX) from a mediocre one is the fact that they know how to play in the pack without completely dying.

tt some tracks with daisy that are generally better with funky kong. examples; DDR, MH, MG, TF

learn how to do all the main shortcuts with daisy, ESPECIALLY the bcwii glitch. i see tons of people nowadays using daisy but they don't know how to do bcwii glitch consistently. in less skilled rooms (basically anything below, say, a t4 lounge room), people will not block the glitch much, so if you are able to do it often without stopping, you basically have a free +15.

another vital track is bc3, as the ultra is something that sets daisy users apart from funky kong users, much of the time. this one is less vital as the ultra is very doable with funky too, but it's said that it is much easier with daisy.

still on the shortcut topic, learn stuff like the GV rockhop, MG gap, and DKS double. keep in mind that there's a difference between making a shortcut, and doing a shortcut fast. i can do the DKS double with either character any day, but being *fast* at it is a whole different story. stuff like that just takes repetition through practice.

understand that you will be at a disadvantage at first. you're gonna get bumped everywhere. with experience, you will learn how to deal with it, and/or avoid it.

that's about all i got, hope this helps to an extent.
