We're both lawyers.
I wasn't too concerned about 1 v 1. If anyone wants to win the game they HAVE to attack you or you can't build up your super attack. Unlike SSB where you can win with cheap things like destructive weapons, cheap falls and background attacks, in PASBR you HAVE to attack or no wins. The fight between Nariko and Raiden proves that it can be intense. Besides I have played 1 v 1 in SSB and it is no more or less intense. In fact sometimes it is even worse. I remember playing someone with Mario vs Pit and all the guy did was shoot arrows from a distance at me while I had to try and dodge them.
