Smells to me like you watched a modded copy of the game. Even if I asked you to show it, your copy could be modded, so uhhhh, yeah, I'm smelling bs.Seems like the reason why some people can't do it is because it needs to be patched in on the console version.
Yes. Yes you can.Question: For noms can I do (Rerate) Otis?
Nah, consoles just have an outdated version of the update. There's also a glitch that only exists on the console versions where Aang can instakill people with his down special.Smells to me like you watched a modded copy of the game.

Funny. I gave him a 0.1% because I think he would be more likely than Goku, but only because Goku is like a -1% to me.Robbie Rotten is also the fourth member if the Less Likely Than Goku Club.
Also someone's gotta post some footage of Hugh's back air or something.
This is without a doubt the most important concept anyone has ever nominated.100 noms towards Rocko's alternate render in the gallery being based on this specific stock promo art of him jumping in what appears to be joy but could also be shock
And then there's the Heffer equivalent, who's just vibin'.100 noms towards Rocko's alternate render in the gallery being based on this specific stock promo art of him jumping in what appears to be joy but could also be shock
Originally I was just going to give one 1 nom each to 100 different SpongeBob characters lmao.
I know the feeling, I hope we get more on-location stages as well. Especially ones that aren't "Themed platform above a plateau/backdrop". Not every stage needs to be competitive-legal.I just hope that in the future these dream stages aren't going to become too common.
At the same time it might be a waste to add more casual content when they're hyperfocused on Multiversus and they aren't grateful that the game got items and voice acting at all (and before MVS launched for that matter)I know the feeling, I hope we get more on-location stages as well.

I know, but we can't have samey competitive layouts for every stage either.At the same time it might be a waste to add more casual content when they're hyperfocused on Multiversus and they aren't grateful that the game got items and voice acting at all (and before MVS launched for that matter)
That would be a good solution. I just hope that the "competitive-only" image doesn't affect the franchise's direction in future entries.More casual content would be nice (coin mode plz), there are absolutely still casual players and kids enjoying this game, but trying to "win back" the casual fandom as a whole is a lost cause at this point (and will likely stay as such unless a major streamer picks it up or a sequel is made). The focus on competitive viability going into the DLC stages was a good call IMO, though I feel the ideal solution would be giving each stage a togglable competitive and casual layout like Rivals.
The problem is that Jimmy wasn't 100% running on assumption. His support was very vocal as well, and he would regularly poll well above Hugh in fan polls.they are listening to what fans say they want. Jimmy's inclusion was seen as obvious, so fans weren't vocal for him
I agree with most of what you said here, with one exception - Jimmy consistently outdid Hugh on every poll, pretty much always taking the second spot behind Jenny. Theres also the fact that nothing is stopping them from adding more from the same series. Smash 4 gave us two DLC FE reps after all. They've seen that demand for Jimmy is probably even bigger now, and in fact there is no probably - he's the new poll champion.Hugh is finally here! Took a while. Would have preferred if there was a bit more warning before his release, but I understand with the marketing budget this game has they probably can't afford two blitzes per character.
As for Hugh himself, I'm not going to give a satisfaction score. It wouldn't be fair, seeing how I haven't played him. While I can give my opinions of the selection and implementation, without getting a feel for the character I don't feel comfortable submitting to a score. There are characters that I wouldn't have expected to enjoy so much - or so little - pre-release! So it's only fair that Hugh gets that same benefit of the doubt.
Briefly, my thoughts on him are that I'm not into the pick. I don't find him particularly funny, and I think the fandom's fascination with bumbling dads kinda ruined it for me. I love Jimmy Neutron the show and its title character, so seeing him passed over for what is basically a joke, falls flat imo. The moveset, from what I've seen, isn't changing much of my mind. It doesn't look incoherent, but it doesn't look inspired either. Not a flashy archetype or a cool gimmick or anything to really make me go "wow, clearly they had a vision for Hugh!" and after the high of Jenny it's particularly egregious. As for the stage... C'mon, this is as uncreative as it gets. It was lazy when Garfield did it, and being done a second time is just absurd. If this is what it takes to get tournament legal stages, it's the best argument to be made against them ever.
Alright, enough negativity. What I really want to get into today is a deep(ish) dive into what Hugh's addition means for speculation.
The first conclusions to be drawn (and redrawn): meme characters get a lot of help. The devs clearly enjoy them and Nick is willing to give the go-ahead. So who does this mean? Otis is the main one. He was popular pre-release and has stayed consistent. The memes for BatB are arguably more widespread than Jimmy Neutron's. If there was to be an heir apparent to Hugh, much like El Tigre is to Jenny, it's Otis. Others to take into account are Fanboy & Chum Chum (as well as any rep for a derided show, but they're the face of the category), Otto Rocket (whose dated attitude is quite memetic) and any cartoon dad (first that comes to mind is Timmy's).
Another thing that won't strike anyone as a revelation: popularity and demand matters. Jenny was a stronger confirmation, but Hugh marks a trend. The devs are listening to what fans want. More importantly for the case of Hugh, they are listening to what fans say they want. Jimmy's inclusion was seen as obvious, so fans weren't vocal for him: as a result, Hugh got in before him, a controversial decision but one that makes sense considering what we know of the devs. They aim to please and make no assumptions so ask for the characters you want, not the ones you want after the ones you want. This bodes well for every character highly demanded but particularly during pre-release. If the devs were swift enough to pivot, Jimmy would probably be here.
Speaking of: time to address the elephant in the room. How does Hugh's inclusion affect Jimmy's odds? I was always the voice of pessimism, arguing that I don't see them adding two characters from one show as DLC. That sentiment still rings true, but one thing has made me pause: Hugh's stage. Now, the devs are savvy to fan expectations for this sort of thing and have been vocal about breaking fan rules. It would have been perfectly in character for them to give Hugh a stage in which Jimmy shows up and then add him anyway. But the fact is, Hugh is solely representing himself and nothing but himself. His moveset and stage are Hugh content, not Jimmy Neutron content, to a weird degree. Obviously Hugh wasn't about to be using science gadgets, but a Retroville stage would've made perfect sense (more than what we got even). It's all just too conspicuous. It might just be the devs leaning hard into making stages tournament legal, or the concept that home stages have to be super personal, but there is a chance that they're ay least covering for the future.
I still feel that Jimmy is more unlikely than not, but I am more willing to consider the possibility after seeing how Hugh was implemented. Let's just say everyone's wishful thinking rubbed off on me.
Took me a while to get this post done! I should probably proofread more, and I'm sure that if I take another day I can probably think of more to say, but I'm really busy so this will have to do.
My prediction for Charlie stays the same. Since Robot and Monster are already up near the top, I'll give my noms for today (if there are any) and all my extra noms to Sanjay and Craig.
I'm talking all the polls in regards to who people wanted to see as DLC once the base roster was revealed but prior to the reveal of DLC. Jimmy always did better. Read the threads on here and reddit if you don't believe me.DrifloonEmpire GaminGryff Let's chalk it up to a difference in recollection. I certainly remember people being excited for Jimmy to be in, but that didn't necessarily translate to calls for him to be in (why would it? He was a lock). A subtle difference for sure, but I think it's one that made a difference. Never rest on your laurels and all that.
I 100% agree that Jimmy's demand right now puts him at the top of the pack with only Timmy coming close. Absence sure makes the heart grow fonder.
