Snipperclips Character: 0% Chance, their music is generic and goes in the others section, they are not happening.

Want: 15%, the demo was okay but it's not something I'll buy.

All Star Versus Chance: 30%. It can be done, but it doesn't seem like anybody on the Smash dev team had the idea.

Want: 70%. More modes is more fun after all.

Noms: Unique Puzzle Game Rep x 5.

Chance: 0%
Want: 0%

I don't see them ever happening as a playable character. They can't exactly do much in the case of grabbing other characters. Plus isn't Snipperclips meant to be played by 2 people? I played the game with a friend of mine and it's cute and charming and that's about it. I'll take a Snipperclips stage I guess.

All-Star Versus
Chance: Abstain
Want: Abstain

I've never touched Project M, and am I right to assume the final match at Smash Tour is the closest thing to it? Squad Strike seems to be a variant to the concept with the exception being it's not one big continuous match.

Still want Three Houses character concept dropped for redundancy.

Chance - 0% - They got a song with a generic icon. That should be taken as a sign that they aren't getting a character.

Want - 35% - Not interested. I don't think they can really do anything.


All-Star Versus

Chance - 20% - While they could do it, Squad Strike... strikes me as too similar in concept to be implemented. You can probably get a near-same effect by having Squad Strike on the same stage over and over.

Want - 55% - I can take it, I guess, though Squad Strike seems similar enough that I wonder why the two would be implemented in the same game. It'd feel like wasted develeopment, IMO.

Abstaning on ASV, as Squad Strike is either the exact same or very simmilar.

Snip and Clip

Chance: 1%. They got a song on the site. With a generic icon. That basically killed their chances.

Want: Abstain.

You didn’t give enough reasoning.
Well then. I thought I had enough sentences for my explanation. Guess that means that it would be best if I abstain out of safety. I have the capability to provide reasoning for my previous post. If I do so, could they possibly be counted?

Abstain, making sure that I am...

Squad Strike seems to pretty much be an official version of this. So I guess it's confirmed?
Want: 100%
It's a pretty cool game mode. It would be fun to play.

Too recent, small fanbase, and we got Snipperclips music using a generic music logo. Do I need to go on?
Want: N/A

GoodGrief741 GoodGrief741 , I went back and added the extra sentences that I really though I had from the beginning. If the nominations still don't count, I understand that it is probably most fair that way. I'm just really pressing for nominations at the moment with the purge about a week away, and really thought that I met the requirements, which is why I didn't bother to change it during the 48 hour day... Yikes...

Sorry, can’t change them now. There’s a bit of leeway if you were to add sentences between the time TCT~Phantom ends the day and the time I calculate noms, but anything beyond that is a no-go.

Okay then, I gotcha. That makes the most sense for fairness, so I won't complain anymore than I have. No worries, sorry about that.

On a different note, day end soon TCT~Phantom TCT~Phantom ?

Well, that happened. Due to this, purge will get a delay, we will tomorrow do predictions, then reactions, then satisfaction ratings.

Furthermore, if this is the final direct, which tbh I slightly doubt since they we could get a reveal in a November direct and this could just be the last direct for smash only, we will transition into dlc. That means a new fixed schedule, a cleaned noms list, etc. most of the non deconfirmed heavy hitters will be on the list.

In order to hold over in the event that happens, we will be doing a couple of highlight days. Fav least fave points of speculation, stuff like that.

Guessing we get all of this, not necessarily in this particular order

open with a character - Probably Banjo
Details on online play
final echos revealed back to back - shadow and Ken
details on the games and more section, like home run contest, target smash, all star mode, etc
Final assist trophies, items, and Pokeballs shown off
sakuri announces the "final" roster members. Chorus Kids,Mach Rider, and Issac all have trailers run back to back that kinda flow into one another, similar to how simon and Richter's did, with each being highlighted appropriately.
spirits mode details
Closes with Geno's character reveal and a banner update

Do we do noms for DLC now? If so

Noms
Joker x5

I'll decide to throw a curveball and say that

THE GRINCH IS COMING!

Bet you all didn't see that coming; you thought I was going to say that the Grinch leak is fake because I mentioned it earlier and I said I was going to throw a curveball. As in so far everybody thinks the Grinch leak is happening. Spirits mode will most likely be covered as well. Every other question that we had about Smash will most likely be answered, leaving us with a complete picture about what to expect when December 7th rolls around. So Grinch leak. And hopefully Megalovania as an official, playable music track. And a Steam Gardens remix. What else am I predicting again?

Nominations: Quote x5

One simple prediction: A character that was never implicated by both Vergeben and the Grinch will be the first character revealed.
I like this. I REALLLLY like this. I want this to be true so bad now. It would throw the whole community off guard, with everybody having a good idea for themselves who they think will be the very first character revealed.

I also think it would hilarious if Sakurai mentions and then utterly disproves Vergeben and/or the Grinch leak live during the Direct.

The blast zone
Roy will speak English.
Hopefully Cloud speaks English too. Also, hope we get dual audio.

PREDICTIONS TIME
  • At least 2 new characters, but definitely no more than 3 uniques. I don't care about the Grinch leak.
  • Green (Spirits) mode covered, probably another party game mode.
  • Online mode covered, probably similar to Smash 4's online.
  • Other game modes like stadium, all-star mode, and events are covered
  • TROPHIES
  • MASTERPIECES
  • At least 2 new echo fighters (including Ken).

Hey GoodGrief741 GoodGrief741 and TCT~Phantom TCT~Phantom , because we have a very limited amount of time left that we can rate chances and make predictions for the base game for Smash Ultimate, what do you all say we get 10 nominations instead of 5 today and tomorrow? I mean, it won't make a difference really if we learn about everything left to know about Smash, and it could sort of be "going out with a bang" before DLC speculation.

The direct reveals 7 characters. The grinch leak isn't real however, we'll get three unique fighters and four echoes. Isaac, Bandana Dee and a western third-party (Banjo or Rayman I cannot choose) Echoes are Dixie, Impa, Ken and a Sonic echo.

Spirits is talked about. It's a Meleelike adventure mode featuring Smash run enemies.

Returning modes get their spotlight. (All star, Target smash, stage builder, etc)

Means of unlocking characters will be mentioned.

Final Items/Pokeball/Assist trophies reel with some heartbreaking confirmations. (Incineroar, Geno, Shantae, Chibi Robo, etc)

Smash ballot will be mentioned in some way.

Direct ends with a dlc teaser, just like the Fifty fact extravaganza.

The prince x5
