I generally judge a character or franchise by, well, the character or franchise itself, not whatever company just so happens to own it so honestly as someone who is a huge fan of Overwatch I'm still not really against Tracer being in Smash, as Tracer herself is cool.

I haven't exactly been following this Hong Kong/Blizzard situation as much as others though tbh. From what I gather, some competitive player for a Blizzard game spoke out against the Chinese government and Blizzard banned them, if I'm not mistaken here (by all means correct me if this very basic description is off). I dunno, it sounds like a ****ty decision on Blizzard's part, but maybe it was just a "we don't want players dipping into controversial stuff" thing and not a "we agree with China and hate freedom of speech" thing (again, if I'm off here and Blizzard actually does support what Chine is doing, by all means correct me). Not trying to defend or support Blizzard's decision or say it was good, but just curious about Blizzard's motivation or reason behind it, I guess.
The crux of the matter is if Blizzard deliberately avoiding taking a stance in such a delicate situation is akin to tacitly/passively supporting the position they're not censoring. And that's all I'll say on the matter because I don't know what rules are on this kind of matter, but I know where I stand.

What an overly drastic measure to ensure politics isn't talked about. No real opinion beyond it being a kneejerk business decision they'll have to live with.
That's basically what I'm getting from this. Blizzard was just wanting to avoid controversy and ended up going about it in a way that completely and utterly backfires.

Her fighting style involving zombies was very fun in MVC2, but I do truly believe bloody zombies would be an issue for ratings, so I discarded that idea.
Also, I only drew her normal combos and attack specials. I tried to keep it in a style like classic Resident Evil games where you need to choose carefully when to use your weapons and items, while still keeping some elements from newer games.
Wow this is a really cool moveset concept and the illustrations are great btw.

I particularly like the idea of the inventory and the limited ammo, it's totally Resident Evil-esque.

There's a support thread for Jill in Smash, i'm sure the people there would be interested to see your take on her potential moveset. Here's a link to it: https://smashboards.com/threads/the-master-of-unlocking-jill-will-survive-in-smash.454842/page-6

( Rie Sonomura Rie Sonomura see how i nailed it this time... wait... *double checks if it's the right Jill*, yup nailed it :p)

Note: I had no idea how to upload an image here, so i created a tumblr and put a link :c

Blizzcon is in a few weeks. Suffice to say, how the whole Hong Kong mess affects the event should be really interesting.

Her personality in the games doesn't come across at all as she's either the biggest ******* on the planet or horny on main so I don't see it
I just see that as Smash not trying too hard to make the character 1-for-1. Otherwise, we'd probably have a more expressive Cloud or a less sassy Lucina.

It took 10 years for Mario not to be perpetually ****ing pissed off all the time in Smash

It's funny cause while that's true, the Plant trailer has 1 thing that was always consistent: People noticing how pissed Mario looks when walking.


Also holy **** can we add Vergil in Smash? His Concentration mechanic in DMC4SE and 5 post patch sounds really fun to implement

What would Snake even say if he had lines in World of Light? He would just be questioning everything.

:ultmarth:We each need to take down about ten.
:ultsnake:Ten?
:ultzelda:Stow your fear, it's now or never!
:ultsnake:Fear?
:ultpit:We'll win this. I know we will!
:ultsnake:Psycho Mantis?

Oh pardon me, madam. Let me just "tactically MOAB" all of Outer Heaven then.
no no no no ysee liquid's nanomachines are too strong and therefore tactially bombing the place would do nothing but make his location even more of a mystery. far more entertaining to have a 1-hour fist fight as a final boss

I never expected anything to top last year's Blizzcon but oooh boy. This will be something.
I've been thinking btw. Never a good thing, but this thought I got is something I kind of want to see

If Spencer from Bionic Commando got in, would the chuds saying Banjo's sword counts as a female rep do the same for the Bionic Arm?
People generally try to forget that game existed. It's a very nice tradition and I'm saddened to see you disregard it so.

I know people REALLY don’t want a Blizzard character because of the terrible stuff they as a company have done, and I’m not disagreeing on that, but I highly doubt adding them in the game will damage Nintendo’s pride when they already have:
Microsoft(Watch VideoGameDunkys video)
Konami
Sega
I’m Probably missing a company.
