@LX_Theo Okay here's a hypothetical scenario.
A player has just bought Mario, on the first level he is killed by a Goomba of all this, the game spams them all the time so what does Mario do? The player goes onto a forum and complains about how it's unfair that a new player can't be allowed to just run through a level the way they want without getting killed, experienced players try to tell them you can avoid the Goomba's and even counter them by jumping over them or ontop of their head but OH NO this is something that NEEDS nerfed for the sake of the players who don't want to play the game properly.
Next week Nintendo releases a patch so that Mario can just walk past a Goomba unharmed without even needing to jump. The player has not improved at all but hey, he's happy, his problem has been removed. Later on a few months down the line the player jumps onto a Goomba and thinks "hey...it dies when I jump on it, I didn't know I could do that before...but now it can't even do anything to me if I try to walk towards it and jumping on it kills it so...the nerf wasn't needed?"
That the worst example ever.
do you think people and superbot are stupid enough to say nerf sackboy for no reason.
well they pretty much just did.
He definitely needed to be nerfed as it required no skill to run in a corner, lay down an electric trap / fan and generate items all day long.
And the real problem is on some maps there are small ledges which dont allow anyone else on, if he plants down the trap/fan too the only way is to get him from underneath it also meant it was virtually impossible for anyone with a horizontal based super to kill him on it.
In 1v1 its no problem, it just makes for a boring game of me jumping on top and hitting him everytime he gets up. Lame yes but its either that or let him do his thing until a level 3.
The problem is in multi-tiered/changing maps ffa/2v2 the complete randomness of the level means u cant always avoid the items. So for a random match making game where you dont know which maps or characters you will be facing in advanced means he can be a complete nightmare and requires you to only concentrate on him, when no other character needs that attention you know something is wrong.
You're arguing amongst yourselves for no real reason other than you're e-peen. Just relax and wait for the patch.
I'm a floater, not a fighter.
But it does take several months to collect enough data to make decisions on which chaarcter has an advantage against other ones. Take a look at Street Fighter 4, Zangief was deemed top tier in the first month yet 6 months down the line Seth, Sagat, C.Viper and Rufus all took the places at top tier while Zangief was chilling as a mid/low tier character after people learned both how to fight him and how to take advantage of his weakness' as some characters.
