So I understand ultimate has great balance. I keep seeing new character arising to high tier game play and am incredibly impressed. But... I have also witnessed top tier play in which projectile spam is competitive, sometimes even single projectile spam such as ness or Lucus with pk fire. It doesn’t matter how good you are, you will get spammed. Still with all this projectile spam it’s still balanced. There is still a way for HIGH TIER characters to deal with it. With that said is it fun....?!?! The answer is it’s not. It’s a really not fun game mechanic to play as or against. ESPECIALLY for new players. Which is why even though it’s a huge title, with an even bigger competitive scene, it will on average only sit around 2-3k viewers on twitch. Nobody wants to watch or play a character designed to run away while slowly getting cheap shots unless you are partially psychotic with no compassion for your opponent. And so while ultimate got “balanced” after 10 years since melee, it still misses the mark with a lot of match ups. And that is fun.
