[/collapse]Welcome, my friend! You've found our Bonus Room, the fantastic Balloon Blast!
If you step this way, I'll introduce you to just how this place of information works, and how you can help!




What you see above are the colorful variety of Ratio Balloons! As labeled, each Balloon depicts a different meaning.
These need to be applied to the following Character Cards in order to help Diddy Kongs everywhere with quick reference and assistance.
Threads will be created and listed below the list of Character Cards for discussion when facing opponents as Diddy Kong,
so please be sure to contribute to get rid of all these pesky Grey Balloons! (They're worth ZERO lives!)
You'll have two weeks to accomplish this task for each character, so get going!


(If you click a Character Card, you can access that characters Matchup Discussion Thread)

Notes:
  • Matchups to discuss each week or so will be decided by the community, in short we will vote. :)
  • Matchup Discussion is expected to last exactly two weeks, with a new discussion starting each Sunday.
  • Due to favorable opinion, the ratio system will be +4 to -4 (Advantage to Disadvantage, with 0 being even) and Character Cards will be updated to reflect that as discussions finish. Any ratios posted by users in the ##-## format will be converted to this when considered for finalization.
  • The previous Matchup Discussion threads are now closed, and should be retired to becoming closed threads soon. Please do not use them for further discussions.
  • I've been handed the keys to the Matchup handling on the Diddy board by Ingulit, in Sails absence. The old Matchup Index is being retired for I feel that a fresh start is necessary for both interest and up to date information.
  • This thread is to be used for General Matchup Discussion, such as quick questions and answers. Please try and keep these out of the Social thread, and inside this one.
  • I'll be regularly patrolling threads for misconduct, and will be forced to report severe cases to moderators.

try to not use ??:?? Ratios, just stay with the ballons and use it like the BBR System. (like blue is +3).

Personally I don't like using ratio's, the one thing I do like the BBR MU is that it uses the 0 +/-1 etc. I don't really care that people use ratios though so if you want to use ratios then go for it.

because ratios are subjective and the meaning of 60:40 differs from board to board.
"Slight Disadvantage" aka "-1" is more reasoable by one look. 65:35 in the Yoshi Boards could be something different then 65:35 in the Lucario Boards but "slight disadvantage" is easy to interpret and has not that wide varity of "what could it exactly mean".

I see +1,+2 and +3 as "55:45","60:40" and "65:35", so I don't see any difference in those lol.

Imo the images are a little bit too large. :\ You have to scroll so far down to get to all of them...

Alright, ratios are going to be out and replaced with +/-'s, but the Grey's are going to remain ??-?? until a MU is finished.

Also, I know the images are somewhat big, but many other boards have theirs span many pages and are quite messy (Check the MK boards!). The idea was for it to be easy to view, thus they're somewhat large. I plan on making a quick reference sheet in the future that is smaller.

This is awesome, nice job Sails. I'm very impressed.

And I agree. We should stick to the "+1, -1, +2, etc" method, as that is what the metagame is currently using to discuss MUs.

Hope this stays updated and we can get through them all :awesome:

Sigh. I didn't want to have to do this, but I guess since people are too slow to discuss that I'm going to anyways. I'm going to extend Matchup discussions to two weeks. There is a catch though. In order to make up for this, there will now be two Matchups running at once. Every week, one Matchup will end and another will begin the two week period. This won't get Matchups done any faster, but will provide more time to discuss since we clearly need the extra time.

Edit: Ice Climbers are open for discussion.

I'm thinking maybe you should link to the MU discussions as they open in the General/Social thread.. cause I know alot of people (including myself) just look at subbed threads in their CP.. so if it's linked there odds are more peoplee will see it, MU's get more responses, move along faster, ????, profit.

I wasn't aware that people used subscription functions, I've never bothered. I'll do that in the future, thanks.

Edit:

"Ice Climbers are still up for discussion, and it has been slow, so please try and contribute a little bit more. Wario is now open for discussion, apparently Random.org really doesn't want us to discuss MK or Snake just yet...

I also fixed a few palette issues with the Balloon colors, since I'm weird like that.

Yep :p

Also, there really isn't enough information in the IC's thread to close it up. I'll do it up sometime tomorrow, I'm not feeling all that well to do it up tonight.
I lied. This week is kicking me in the ***, so I'm going to let both threads end the end of this week, giving an extension on the IC's thread. Then I'll start up a new discussion. Sorry :|
