Team Fortress Nominees
Stage Name: Dustbowl
Stage Origin: Team Fortress 2 (2007)



While a lot of people would beeline for 2Fort's inclusion, I think Dustbowl would be just as interesting - if not more. It's a remake of the map of the same name from the original Team Fortress, and it's used as a tutorial map to introduce one of the gameplay types of the game - specifically, Control Point. Interestingly, it's also quite possible that Dustbowl has some association with the Heavy specifically, given the Heavy was paired with Dustbowl as a playable fort in Worms: Reloaded. Oh, and to be honest, I don't think we'd really get another stage quite like this otherwise.

Badlands
Would be a traveling stage
My Nominee
Sawmill

Thought about 2fort as ive only played a little tf2 & KneeOfJustice99 brought it up but upon looking at stages thought this one had some fun potential & would stand out a bit. Plus it looks like one of the earlier stages which i think is beneficial as more people may recognize it.
Half Life Nominees
Stage Name: City 17
Stage Origin: Half-Life 2 (2004)



A stage taking place on the rooftops and vistas of City 17, overlooking the Citadel that dominates the skyline. I'd take most of the visual design elements from Half-Life: Alyx here, and as such, the Citadel is still under construction following the Combine's invasion of Earth in the Seven Hour War. In terms of gimmicks, I'd err on the side of not really including any, though being able to see Combine soldiers on the streets below would be quite fun.

Black Mesa
Walk off stage with a dip in the middle, G-Man would appear and change the stage.
My Nominee
Quarantine Zone

Wanted to go with something strictly from Half Life Alyx which just released the prior year (also part of the reason i was pulling for her as our newcomer). Upon a little research this came up as one of the more important locations.
Vote for your top 2 for each series, self votes in 2nd. 1st overal for both will be added.

1 Black Mesa
2 City 17

1 Dustbowl
2 Sawmill

Job #079
Newcomer Name: Arch-Illager
Newcomer Origin: Minecraft Dungeons (2020)

While we do already have Alex as a clone of Steve, I think extending Minecraft's representation out from just the original game into the various spinoffs of the series makes sense - and in this role, I think the Arch-Illager works well as a villainous character. He's controlled by the Orb of Dominance that floats around on his staff, and has a variety of magical abilities including firing blasts of energy and even summoning Redstone Monstrosities. Additionally, as the leader of the Illagers, he could use abilities that are used by other Illagers in the Minecraft series - such as the Illusioner's clones, the Evoker's fangs, or the Iceologer's ice chunks - and items associated with them in Minecraft Dungeons, like the Lightning Rod or Enchanter's Tome. (One idea I also think could be really fun is having a move that lets him plant an Illager banner somewhere on the ground, which gives him and his allies buffed defence when within it.)

Parvati Holcomb
From the RPG the Outer Worlds. One of the companions from the game and the star of probably it's most acclaimed mission. Parvati is mechanic working in Edgewater, she will join your crew after taking in an interest in your ship. Most of her mission is spent romantically perusing engineer Junlei and working through her own attachment issues. She wields a giant hammer, would be her main weapon in XBLC. She can use it to stun foes and create shockwaves. She can also wield a gun and we could even have her create machines to buff herself. We could give her some of the protagonists abilities too.

Ichiban Kasuga
Similar to smash 's dlc, I think it makes sense to start dipping into some of the third party partners that Xbox has, especially on the game pass side of things. Yakuza is a series that made a splash on Xbox around this time. LAD just came out and I think Ichiban would be a fun plat fighter character, and doesn't have the issues of Kiryu. He would have RPG mechanics taken from his game, the ability to pull out random objects, summons, and more.

Job 79: Sabrewulf

One of the older characters from Rare. He originally appears as the main antagonist of the game "Sabrewulf" and later appears as a fighter in the Killer Instinct series.

Resubmitting Crash
My Nominee
Dr. Loboto

A villain from the Psychonauts series. 2 would be releasing around the same time & be the 1st double fine game under the Xbox banner.
Vote for your top 3, self votes 2nd or lower. 1st will be our final base game newcomer & 2nd will be our promo/1st dlc fighter.

1 Arch-Illager
2 Crash
3 Parvati
Ichiban is great too but feel like leaning towards 1st party (or soon to be announced as intended 1st party for Crash).

BONUS Job - Thought id open up misc. discussion this weekend for ClimaX, feel free to share any item, game mode, or other general new ideas.

Also would we like any more stage or assist jobs before diving into DLC? Right now we actually are on pace to have 2 additional new stages but less total than Smash & our assists are right at the number Smash has. Normally have a misc job for both but they dont seem as popular plus i honestly dont have alot of new ideas as alot of notbale stuff already made it in & new releases have slowed.

Like others have pointed out, Ichiban would be great, but a little more first-party focus would be cool here.

Also, I'll mirror your point on additional content being a little difficult given the lack of first-party releases... but this does potentially lend to an interesting idea - a third-party stage without a playable representative. (After all, we do have the Game Pass in full swing, so it feels like it could maybe work.)

BONUS: Probably a weird suggestion, but I think it'd be cool if Microsoft made collectable cards for ClimaX that got handed out at different events, akin to MultiVersus's similar concept, but only as collectables to like, frame and show off or whatever. Plus, it'd be pretty funny if one of them in particular was ridiculously rare for some reason, like Hudson or whatever, due to some kind of printing error or something stupid like that

Results (1st joins base roster & 2nd is our promo dlc fighter)

1 Crash 14
2 Arch-Illager 12

3 Parvati 9
4 Ichiban 5
5 Sabrewulf 2
6 Dr. Loboto HM

Everything is here. Smash had Everyone but ClimaX tries to one up it with all content (especially after Smash was so close in several categories). Notable returning content compared to our last game is a port of 360s adventure mode (partially included at launch & complete after a couple updates.) Arcade mode endings are treated like Smashs stage interactions (new characters get CG endings/Palutenas Guidance but the comic book style endings from 360 are a bonus for characters from that game like Snake Codecs). Custom moves are also back but notably have little to no effort to balance after being banned from the competitive scene in the last game. I think we should also add 2 new bosses, they would be exclusive to boss rush with both being added to the end but 1 needing special conditions (difficulty &/or time limit?) to face.

Feel free to share thoughts on my misc ideas & added a poll regarding assists.

Job #080
Stage Name: Native Fortress
Stage Origin: Crash Bandicoot (1996)




A stage taking place at the top of the Native Fortress, the last level of the first island in the first game. Amongst other things, you'll have to deal with spikes, flames, and crates - but the view of different islands in the background can provide a pretty respite from the whole combat thing. Side note, but the design would be heavily based on that seen in the N. Sane Trilogy.

Assist Name: Aku Aku
Assist Origin: Crash Bandicoot (1996)




Summon Aku Aku, and he'll be worn on your face as a mask for a few seconds. During these few seconds, you passively gain immunity to all attacks, you're cleared of all status effects, and you gain passive super armour akin to Bowser's Tough Guy. However, while it might be tempting to use this newfound power to decimate your opponents, Aku Aku's power only lasts for a pretty short time - so you'll need to make the most of it!

Our poll has closed in favor of promoted assist appearing but not being available if fighter is selected. (4 votes as opposed to 1 vote for our other 2 options)

Time to Vote

Stage Nominees

Warp Room
Starts out as above, but the location changes to different levels in the Crash series
Stage Name: Native Fortress
Stage Origin: Crash Bandicoot (1996)

My Nominee
Dimensional Rift

Similar to Warp Room but would pull from Crash 4 instead of the classic trilogy. Would start at Hazardess Wastes then the stage would ride the rails seen in game to rotate to Tranquility Falls, Mosquito Marsh, & Eggipus dimensions.
Assist Nominees

Dr. Neo Cortex
Would fly around the stage on his hoverboard and shoot energy balls
View attachment 391275
Dingodile
Sprays his flame thrower all over the stage
Assist Name: Aku Aku
Assist Origin: Crash Bandicoot (1996)

My Nominee
Aku Uka Bros

Yes its Aku Aku again but would function much differently being joined by his evil twin brother Uka Uka. The duo would fighter & do damage to anyone (except summoner) caught in the crossfire similiar to the final boss fight of Crash 3
Vote for your top 3 in each, self votes in 2nd, most votes overall will be added.

1 Warp Room
2 Native Fortress
3 Dimensional Rift

Boss nominee can be 1st or 3rd party so Activision being nominated is fine although as darkvortex mentioned for reference we are at 2021 & the ABK buyout wasnt announced until January 2022 (or finalized until October 2023).

Will give another day for boss nominees, in the meantime heres my nominee & an updated full roster image.

Lecherito (Wasteland)

The Head Clown of Los Payasos, a group from Wasteland 3, wanted to take advantage of one of the other buyouts without a major rep yet & 3rd game (1st under Microsoft) was released relatively recent, more recent than our other 2 options who I also wasnt able to find anyone more interesting from (Compulsion/State of Decay). Think there is some potential with a mad clown/Joker-esc fight.

Boss: Drill-X(Skylanders)
1719249062929.png

Picked a Skylanders boss because:
A.) - Activision Boss
B.) - All the Skylander games were on Xbox 360

His boss fight would be similar to his fight from Giants but with the perspective changed to a regular Smashlike perspective and the lyrics slightly changed

Job 82 - Nominate a new stage, like last time no restrictions other than needing to be from a game released by this time.

A suggestion (but not required) is for 3rd party series stages that arent on our fighter roster. We are well repped in most other areas but as mentioned previously by KneeOfJustice99 we are kind of lacking in this category.
