Hey guys! Sorry to be a killjoy. :(

While amusing, let's try and avoid any more of the mock images/memes/etc. for a while. It'll preserve the quality of discussion.

Some time's passed since the last post so I don't think it will be any more of an issue, but I thought I'd just comment on the subject.

But Ogilviiieeee, there's nothing to discuss!

But seriously, sorry about that. I'll put those kinds of images in the SSB screen thread.

So, let's see... Some people on another board were discussing how the Final Destination stages get a bit old after time, especially in team battles in For Glory. One of them had the idea of there being Alpha stages, maybe made in a patch or something. The Alpha stages would be Battlefield stages instead of FD stages. It's not much of a change, but to me it seemed like it could freshen things up a bit. What do you guys think?

To be honest I prefer most stages the way they are now, but just adding more platforms to Omega stages is kind of sidestepping the point - fighting on the same four platforms ala Battlefield isn't going to get old any slower than fighting on the same giant island ala FD all the time is. In most cases you could just add an option to disable damaging stage hazards and, save for the occasional cave of life here and walkoff ledge there, most levels would be tourney viable already.

Fighting on Omega stages can be boring (when the fight isn't all hype and stuff), but dying due to a cheap nitch in a level that isn't an Omega stage is arguably worse from my perspective.

 

There are a lot of stages that aren't too unfair, but they're are a lot of really annoying stages, like Magicant or Paper Mario or Mute City or Dream Land etc.

Even as a casual player I want a stage hazard switch.  Some stages are just completely intrusive in every sense, Magicant being the worst by far for sure.  A CPU player that joins your side sounds fine as an out there gimmick on paper but it just ruins the match.  I don't even enjoy getting him on my side, I do it out of necessity because it's better than having him on the other person's side, but the match stops being fun then because I feel like I have a completely unfair advantage.

 

The Flying Men might have been tolerable if they automatically disappeared if not defeated after 20-30 seconds or so, but since they don't I just want them gone completely.

While I agree about the stage hazard switch, The Flying Men are actually really easy to beat.

 

EDIT: If anything, the Dark Emporer is much worse since he gives you stat boosts and instant kills sometimes.

Same goes for the yello devil. I would actually like to have the moving platforms for competitive play without the big yellow thing in the way, taking up the whole stage when moving from one side to the other side

Agreed there are worse stage hazards, but Streetpass Quest is a significantly less interesting stage to battle on in terms of the actual construction so it's not so frustrating for me to not be able to have a fair match there.  Magicant just has such a nice layout and the platforms that come and go make it interesting enough as is.

Honestly, I enjoy crazy stages with tons of items, I find that tons of fun, but I'm not a competitive player

 

Also, loving all the K.Rool fan support around the internet, here's a cool one

Also, this has been around a while, but they added something hilarious to the description

K. Rool's tossing in his crown for Smash Bros DLC. And trying to hit someone with it.

Agreed! If there's one Konami character that I'd like to see in Smash Bros it's Simon Belmont for sure. IMO, he's a better choice than Snake.

 

I personally think Bomberman or Goemon would be great choices, the former as a loooonnnnnggg history with Nintendo(even a crossover with Wario), and the latter was essentially a Nintendo exclusive in the west(even if he's been kinda dormant for a while... I want his N64 games on VC)

Goemon would be good too, but I associate Bomberman more with the Turbografx so I'm not sure about that one.

Ugh, I love Shulk as a character and playable fighter, but I'm having far more trouble with him than I care to admit. His gameplay revolves around his neutral aerial; you have to be very precise with it or you get punished. My other mains, Sonic and Kirby, don't nearly rely on their neutral aerials as much; among other things, I find it a lot easier to have the best spacing with them.  I'll keep practicing; the precision required with the Nair is difficult, but once I have that mastered, it's going to be fun.

If anyone is intrested, especially Shulk mains,  my NNID is DarkDefeater.
