The removal of CPs and Neutrals is a separate discussion.
This sounds kinda hostile, so I'm making sure to point out that this isn't meant to be directed at you Arc, just toward the MBR:
It is a recommended ruleset.
This ruleset in particular is being published for use with Apex/Nationals. The flow of discussion and general practice in large scale tournament is indicative of a reduction in outlier counterpick stages in singles, and without centralized opinion in doubles.
There doesn't need to be collective voting. There needs to be discussion with some consensus on an acceptable flow of change. You aren't back here to only participate in voting. If you aren't participating in the actual discussions going on, I'm not going to count your vote, as you have provided no grounds to make your vote valid. With this in mind, there has not been sufficient contribution from the group as a whole to make a vote worth having.
I wasn't even supposed to be the one doing the ruleset, but, once again, as a group, the MBR failed to contribute. This ruleset has been sitting in the thread for how long?
If you have a problem with something, discuss it. I shouldn't have to send out a group message to call attention to any subject. If the thread dies down and you still don't agree with something, speak up.
I actually made the changes in the doubles/singles ruleset so that someone would speak up, but it was barely noticed/talked about. But suddenly, given this deadline, it is something to talk about.
So, as such, if I see you (Not you Arc, I mean the MBR) whining about something that should have resolved itself weeks/months ago had it been given proper attention, I'm going to tell you to shut up.
That said, I'm not really upset with anyone. Just pointing out why.
Addressing the specific concern with why brinstar/rc would be legal in teams but not singles: I personally think brinstar is too influential and biased towards a few characters to be allowed in singles or teams. I'm undecided on RC. I bundle the two because I try to balance with top/high tiers in mind, and one of those stages affects spacies extremely negatively and the other benefits/doesn't affect them. If I remove one, I will remove both. The only reason they remain in the list is because it hasn't been discussed. With the use of scaling bans, playing on brinstar as a character that is extremely negatively affected will only happen if you are playing a best of 7 set, or you are not educated on the proper use of stage bans.
Scaling bans used in tandem with bundled stages actually allows quite a bit of freedom when it comes to stage legality.
