I'm definitely not referring to anyone in this thread, but it is unfortunate that some people do argue over game matters of this sort because they're hardasses, though.
Now then, I'd throw out a gigantic post of examples, counter responses to a bunch of people and the like, but... My computer decided to **** up, and I lost it all. =/ Buzz kill, man. But what can ya do...
Regardless of my fail, Epsil0n has an important point, lol. There's been a bit of bigotry here and there in the thread lately, and the argument is going in circles now. Riordan has an even more important point, though; even if this "Masty/Proxies overpowered or not?" debate is related to the topic at hand, we've certainly lost sight of it.
People are insulted for using common classes unfairly, and we all can't just have a good time, which is saddening. On top of all the hackers and the trolls on mics, we have to rag on eachother for certain loadouts. It's not like we can just come to a truce, but anyone who is adamant and opposed to the Masty and/or Proxies being used, ignore it, get skilled at the game, and beat their face in without prejudice on their setup(s). Skill > weapons/in-game tools, no matter what. It's why the broken of all broken Meta Knight in Brawl doesn't guarantee wins against a self-proclaimed pro like myself.
