ic chaingrab banned? wtf...

u do know that it take a lot of skill to do them and even at the highest levels people still mess them up.
are the chaingrabs causing people to win every tournament or even any? ice climbers place usually place low as it is and ur gonna take out 50% of their game? even if someone was so good that every time they grabbed u, u died, it still doesnt matter. seriously. dont get grabbed. have you ever played a fighting game ever. theres way more broken stuff in the game and ur gonna take this out and hurt an already hard character to place with.
dont ban them just because you once got chaingrabbed and didnt like it. ban them because theyre broken, which in this case, theyre not.

You have a cute avatar.

People with cute avatars are supposed to be smart.

Do not ban the IC chain grabs.

Lethal: Banning IC's chaingrabs is an act of total scrub behavior. Learn a thing or two about competitive gaming. Quit being a scrub and banning thing that don't even deserve to be put up for CONSIDERATION for banning. I mean really... of all the things in Brawl that are infinitely more broken, you choose IC chaingrabs?

You and your tourney both suck.

Fayeeee :(.

How exactly are they banned? What do you define as an infinite? Can IC's not CG period? Can the footstool? Can they dthrow fair?

If you are going to ban them at least be specific >_>... What exactly can the IC player NOT do?

It isn't specific at all :(.

Also, TGM received a tooonnn of backlash for limiting the IC's chaingrabs in texas and a lot of people have no respect for him because of it...don't follow suit :(.

Edit:

The backroom discussed this issue a ton and every single person back there came to the same conclusion. If you want reasons why it isn't even close to warrenting a ban then feel free to PM me :).

i have no respect for ic players because instead of contacting the TO and discussing the issue maturely they turn into drama queens and spam threads with petty insults

Kels and I should join teams as "Faye's minions" or something of that sort. We need a team name, help us!

Also, people should stop *****ing about the IC chaingrab being banned. You want people to try new things and learn to beat the chaingrab? Why don't you all learn to do without the CG for once and just let it be.

Probably because you can't beat it...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am now hosting a tournament! Shielding/air dodging/spot dodging is now banned because its not fair that you can't be damaged!

I concur. I would totally go to this ****.

And IC players who do nothing but CG have no souls anyways. Don't listen to those freaks.

Faye, this tourney is win. Would go if it wasn't during event 52.

We are just saying that the chain grabs don't deserve a ban.

Why?

Because they don't, LMAO.

*shrug* Believe what you want, TO's that ban the cg don't really know what they are doing.

Well, if you're -just- saying it doesn't deserve it, then just say that, and stop insulting the TO.
You are entitled to your opinion, but really, you don't gotta be *****.

Christ, seems like the whole IC forum found out about the ban & decided to *****... even though none of them would show up to it whether it was banned or not.

Yeah, I don't think it was the TO's idea to ban it anyway, a few people in the AiB topic wanted it banned.
Just sayin, cause that means it might also get unbanned if enough people want it.... (But not you people who wouldn't even go to this tourney in the first place. GTFO of this topic, lol)



But, not joking, sothe you really should host a no shield tourney. It would be amazing.

Hey, props for hosting a tournament, but I question the decision to ban playstyles.
If you say "No ICs chaingrabs" -- first, can you define this clearly?
Secondly, what about other "broken" risk/reward ratios in the game.. picking MetaKnight? King DeeDeeDee chaingrabs? Using Snake? Is edgeguarding broken? And so on. Make one modification, make a million or just leave it alone..

None of those characters have a guaranteed zero death at any given time. Ice Climbers do.

I'm no IC nub Kthx.

All I simply asked was for Faye to define what she means by IC infinites are banned. Currently, I could do several things that would not be infinite, but might be percived as so due to ignorance. So I ask that she posts details. I don't see how this is demeaning at all...

Also, I could post an essay on reasons for the IC infinites not to be banned, but I have already done that and there really isn't a point in doing it here. If the TO wants to hear my opinion I will PM it to her, but I'm not going to post reasons in this thread. I've already convinced several people and TO's to not ban or even think about banning the IC grabs, and it is a big deal to me because it's basically how I got in the backroom. It's hard to argue with really good logic :/.

All the people spamming this thread should stop. The TO isn't a horrible person for doing this lol. People have thier own opinions and if you want to convince them otherwise then do so respectfully.

So again; Faye, will you please explain what exactly you are banning so that the issue is clear? And if you have any questions about the IC's please PM me. I can explain anything you want to know about them. Thanks.

LMAO.


Did all this seriously just happen?

I didn't even know this was going on until someone personally told me about the thread getting invaded by IC players.

The only reason I banned it is because several tourney-goers suggested it should be. I'm just listening to the people so they can have their tournament.

You kids don't even live here. Get off my ***, rofl.
