I just think 5 kills is far too small of a limit in Quick Match when there are players who can quickly achieve a Level 3 and consistently get around 5-6 kills.
Anyone else agree?
I consider that mode as find the weakest link or get lucky mode.
both stock and kill limit are more or less level 3 races. That's why I find timed the most fun, makes Lv3 much more like a Hail Mary than your only option.
Me and my buddies usually will play like 30 stock, that way L3 supers have a less drastic effect, and you see more of a gradual curve as some players start to lose lives a bit quicker than others. The best way to play IMO.
I stay away from both Kill Limit & Stock for this very reason. This game's mechanics seem to be heavily designed around timed match; I find that there's absolutely no reason not to go for a Level 3 in Stock or Kill Limit. But in Timed Match, I actually find that there's reason to weigh my options.
I hope SSM eventually does release that patch that would add a timed option to stock & kill limit. Maybe then I'd consider playing them more (and maybe even want to see them as an option in ranked). But right now, those modes are too predictable for me.
I refuse to play Kill Limit because none of my mains get very many kills. Spike, Heihachi, an FP's level three are either screen clearing (Spike/Heihachi) or useless (FP). =\
As if Fat Princess even needs her level 3.....
