    Tier List Speculation

    Somewhere in the distance, a Luigi is dabbing like a mfer.

    I mean if FD was to go, I'd be fine with DS for sure. But I just do not see that happening. I can't think of too many reasons to ban SV in almost any matchup outside of preference. Open space? FD/PS2/DL/BC are all more open, at least as far as our current definition of open space goes (which...

    MK also feels like a super honest character for the most part. Probably not if you play like Falcon or Ganon, but against most of the cast, even if he wins on paper, which he probably does, he's "fair" and isn't really overwhelming. That's just how it seems atm. A lot of MK players think that...

    The point is that, given the many problems with it, Bowser's Castle is waaaaay easier to defend as a counterpick than as a starter. Keeping it on the list maintains overall balance of 3/3/3. Sure, starters aren't super balanced without it, but you gotta take what you can get. Since we replaced...

    DS isn't really that big. In theory, GHZ and DS would perfectly balance each other out, but PS2 throws that balance off. Hence why Nebraska and Michigan (that I know of) run Wario Land over GHZ to balance out PS2/DS. It's not perfect, but it works. The Counterpicks are identical to what Nebraska...

    Yeah, idk why the platform rotating on YI is a problem. Maybe lessen the angles, but keeping it rotating would add to its neutrality imo. I also don't think the support ghosts are problematic, but I don't care if they're gone either. Pretty much just flatten the main stage and get rid of shy...

    I'm inclined to agree. As long as the number of selectable options is equal, than the numerical "evenness" isn't super necessary. WL/FoD/GHZ and PS2/FD/DS may not be perfectly distributed in all categories, but there is still equality in the selectable options. 3 small, 3 big stages. 3 low, 3...

    The thing is, I'm not sure DS makes much sense as a "Dreamland replacement". There is much more platform interference making the stage way less open. The stage has a full wall and is wider. The blastzones are dramatically smaller. More reasonable, yes, but not big enough to balance out how small...

    Okay, so for the sake of argument in working-with-what-weve-gotsville, it seems that Dreamland is for the most part unacceptable as a competitive stage amongst a large portion of the community. This means there are no stages to properly balance out all the small attributes of Wario Land (or...

    Everyone except Kirby and Bowser are secretly top 15.

    I'm aware that circle camping is way less interesting or engaging. But that doesn't necessarily make it an illegitimate strategy. And again, the stages where it's most egregious (DL/DS) can simply be banned, leaving the much more tolerable choices of WL/FoD/BF, assuming the Paragon list for the...

    If we continue to have a game where characters can kill you off of one conversion on the ground, I'm not so sure I agree that we should eliminate circle camping. It's lame af, but I feel like there are enough matchups where it may be necessary. Basically, if Ice Climbers can have GHZ and SV...

    Let's stop acting like Ness isn't good, either. Jose V is like, what, the 4th Ness to get top 8 at something big?

    Overall list is actually pretty decent on balance because PS2 doesn't have very big blastzones and Dreamland isn't actually that big if you just look at the stage itself. So even though it looks like 3 small stages and 4 large, it actually averages out pretty decently. Starters obviously aren't...
