(this thread only refers to competitive SSBB gameplay, as balance is not essential in casual gaming)
Okay, we all know that it is pretty much impossible to have so many unique characters, stages and items while maintaining balance. We saw in SSBM that certain characters became favorites among heavy competators (Marth, Fox, Falco, Sheik...) We also saw heavy use of certain stages more then others...
My question then is; What characters and other aspects of SSBB will prove to be dominent among heavy competators?
(of course we can only speculate at this time)
