I actually updated the OP but the positions of the characters only changed in lower tiers.

Nah, it's just that MK mains were forced to also use other characters. Apparently it didn't matter for their rankings at all, which either means they didn't play on CPs a whole lot or are good enough to win on them with other characters, which further underlines that the rule is kind of pointless. It forces diversity, but what European CP stages does MK even break in the first place? I can think of a better character for every CP except like Delfino.

Most characters can play vs MK on Delphino ... it's just that it takes more time / patience to beat him there which I guess matters only in the context of time-outs. Since the majority is leaning towards a 9 or 10 minute timer I don't see an issue there either.

but it's totally worth it.
I know, now all of the other characters that weren't dominating before can win :awesome:

No, I only count legit tourneys.

Edit: But I still don't mind you posting them here.
LMAO
Special Rule for this tournament : Meta Knight is banned on Counterpick stages only.
Would this count then???

also what happens if you CP me to delfino? I'm not allowed to go MK in that case... weird. I can understand if you dont want someone else CPing you and then going metaknight, but not allowing someone to go MK when you take them to the gay stage is bad imo

Yeah, people chose counterpick stages to compel their opponents to use another character, but now most French tournaments will be MK-banned :grin:

@LDT Results: Ban MK!!! ... just kidding.

@Nintenpro: There is absolutely NO reason.
Wario and Marth are dominating your area, not MK.

I hope France's MK ban dumbness doesn't hurt Leon's OoC performances against MK ...

Also Good Ish at hosting a successful tourney, Olaf.

Btw. Gheb, did you count Smash@Slay3? Just realized I didnt put number of entrants etc. in there, so idk - I hope you did, need to represent snake 8)

Maybe it would be nice if you could make a list of which tournaments you counted in and link to the post, or something like that :p

Orion didn't go MK and we had three regulars that didn't enter (Chair/Gregs/me), but taking that into consideration our diversity is still fine. *shrug*

Rydle did use Mk against death alex in bracket, lost 1-2 (pretty sure he had used ike in previous matches). Just after that bracket match, he MMd alex with Ike and won, so he decided to end the tourney using ike even if it meant using it against me or joan. and yeah I also lost to his Ike (and I actually beat his MK last time we played). I played my worst set of the year there but meh, got outplayed and that's all xD.

Overall he has beaten many players with Ike that he doesnt beat with MK, even in hard match-ups, at another tournament the same happened vs mikel, losing with MK then winning with Ike. People here know the match-up, he just plays well.

Ike's pretty bad, but it's not like people don't know the MK matchup and it's really not that easy to secondary him unless you're very specific about the matchups.

I'm not sure, but arent the points devided by characters XD?

At leats at Page 1-2 there was a discussion about it and gheb said something like that, I hope he changed that over time, because that would be kinda stupid... especially in cases like this.
