Please fix overtime

15 replies 293 views Edited Feb 3, 2013
Overtime, a good mechanic to ensure there is only one victor, unfortunately in all stars it's kinda screwed up' to fix it SB just needs to:

Only put the people who tied in overtime, not everyone. Its annoying when some hopeless side triangle spamming radec suddenly get like quarter of his l1 per shot.

Disable items. Hazards are OK but items are as annoying as ever in this strict 1 min session where there's everything to lose.

Disable l3. They defy the purpose of a "lightning round" at the end of an intense game as they just pause the flow and some nearly guarantee a win, plus they're so easy to get to. If you're a guy that always dies a l3 and hat this would affect you greatly, you've got to have. a l2 or l1 that can get kills

I agree with the initial suggestion to an extent but removing the players from overtime that aren't tied changes the dynamic of the game because there are instances where persons can come back even if they aren't tied.

Don't think you should disable the items or the level 3s. Some people have better level 1s than others, same applies for level 2s and level 3s. Selecting which one to use while depend on tactics to a large extent and one should still have that option as to which one to take advantage of to influence the game.

Besides if you get to an overtime round and allow the person to get a level 3 you are basically asking to lose. Whenever I'm playing I keep a mental count of whoever is in the lead and their deaths. Whenever it hits overtime best be it known that I am going after whomever is tied with me. Not necessarily with fist to fist fights but definitely with my supers.

I can your point with L3s but surely people have a L1 or 2 that can get good kills even though they are best at their L3 like Nariko can get 2-3 kills with her L2 an sweet tooth gets a steady flow of kills with his good L1.

As for removing people the whole point of the suggestion is to stop them from coming back and usurping a top place between two giants that the decider should be about

I actually think ALL players in Overtime was a brilliant decision. Its exciting, intense, leaves the player in complete suspense awaiting the results and, by the times it reached Overtime I've often forgotten the scores, especially 3x Overtime when its just a bloodbath!

I also think Overtime is WAY more balanced than SSBB's 'Sudden Death', my friend always bested me there with Toon Link's tiny bomb which sent you FLYING out the arena!

I think it can sometimes be pretty hilarious having the losing player suddenly reign on top after overtime.

Try telling that to the few users of Big Daddy or Sir Daniel.

I love the fact that you can be doing poorly and then win in overtime. Keeps you on your toes
