Listen Sabi, regarding this tweet:

If you truly know fighter 5, can you either just leak them now/soon, or just not say anything at all? It's one thing to leak something a month out from possibly getting the reveal, but if you're gonna wait on VR Plant, that's gonna be what, a day, maybe two before the actual reveal? At that point, why not just let people have the surprise?
At that point it won't be a surprise because of everyone's expectations.

I remember someone posted on here a screen cap of a discord chat where a bunch of French people were bragging about making the Cacomallow hats. I don't have the picture on me but if anyone remembers that, do you think that they could actually be telling the truth?

Yeah ok I’ll be open minded to this being fake, but it just really doesn’t seem possible, I mean, if I had those skills I would put my mallow and Cacodemon mods up and make people pay for them( or something Idk how mods work)

If you learned anything from Mr. Grinch, it's that every leak, even the most probable of ones, can be fake. Even Verge

I mean, as Ben Holt Ben Holt once said, the evidence against him is so hard to find.

Kinda getting tired of the hat crap...

Hype responsibly. Hype irresponsibly. Whatever floats your boat.

But until something meaningful comes from it, the discussions are the equivalent of people swear the dress is blue/gold/whatever.
Posting that youre sick and tired of speculation on a speculation board is counterintuitive

Imagine you're modding ultimate. You just found out how to make hats work. Now what? You can show it off and get a few people to say you're awesome ... or you can have some fun and make a fake leak.
No wonder people who made this either felt like sadists or they're spreading a message.

I am doing the same thing, y'know.

Speculation is fine. I'm down with discussions of what it could lead to, why the characters are a good fit, etc.

"This really looks real, and I can't believe it's not" "It's totally fake" isn't really speculation, and is just a loop.

Obviously, people are free to discuss what they want, but just focusing so heavily on a leak's legitimacy rather than anything beyond that kind of kills the fun of speculation, IMO.

You wouldn't have fared well during the Grinch epoch.

On a totally unrelated note to leaks, sources, begging for hints, potential DLC reps, etc... here's a picture of 2B for absolutely no reason.



Don't comment. Don't quote. Just stealthily give a sista an online head nod; I'll sense it. You know who you are.
I still need this stupid ass game. Really hope there's a solution for her skirt

I sat through that crap over on Reddit, and that may be a large part of why my tolerance has dropped.
I did too. It was not pleasant

I remember that too but I don't think anyone talked about it. I'm still neutral on the whole Mii-Hat thing.

Well if Sabi comes back and her answer is that the Mii hats are fake, I'm going to bet that those guys could be responsible for it since it would be a group effort. If only I could find it. I'm gonna see if I can look for it online.

Nobody should be trying to take credit for leaking Terry, ever.

"leaking" the most obvious SNK character after Nintendo themselves already leaked that it was an SNK character is literally the most obvious prediction anyone could make with absolutely no sources whatsoever.

To maintain relevancy and ensure attention, as even a wishy-washy answer causes discussion here so it’s been working
That explains it from the leaker's perspective. I think he was saying more "Why should anyone care about a leaker that doesn't leak?"

this is literally speculation.
Yeah, but he wants NEW speculation. Not just the same speculation over and over.

Thanks Friend-o!

Someone brought this up before, but if Sabi's source knows Fighter 5 like he says and he thought the mii leak could be real, and only now thinks it's fake after asking someone else...

...is Doomguy Fighter 5?
Nothing is concrete

So here's some trivia for ya'll:

Currently, the Fighter Pass has released 4 characters in an order from lightest to heaviest. Joker's weight is 93, Hero's weight is 102, Banjo & Kazooie's weight is 106, and Terry's weight is 108.

Before a specific someone reads this and has an aneurysm at the thought of this being the new theory, no I don't think this holds any weight to whom the next Fighter is. I just thought it would be fun to bring up because that's the current situation with the Fighter Pass before FP5 is released.

Then watch that break as Terry broke Partner Theory.

Here are my picks:
1. Isaac
2. Springman
3. Alucard
4. Black Knight
5. Zero

Of these picks, I think 2,3, and 5 is most likely. Springman especially if we get an ARMS 2. Alucard was previously considered for the character spot but wasn’t chosen in favor for Richter if I recall. Zero is just a waiting game. He’s a popular character that would obviously transfer well into Smash.
