As I said, I'd rather see an increase in Snake and all the other Top Tier fighters, than having a 50-50 between Meta and Snake. I still don't know why you think something bad could come from this...
You must not underestimate what is a fact.
Let's try an example: Beethoven > Bieber
Would you call that fact .... or opinion?
with mk removed there is an imbalance in the scale
remove something on one side and there is a huge shift
we will see a huge shift in the metagame
it could go bad or good
but one side needs change to fit the other
The top tiers now hit S and become overused
In melee it was Fox, Falco, Jig, and Shiek
In brawl it could be Diddy, Snake, and Falco
we will see more pro Diddys, Snakes, and Falcos now
and they might have to bring mk back in to redress the scales
MK is interesting. since he has no "bad" match-ups people will use a wide verity of characters to beat him.
so in one way MK is the reason why there is diversity in Brawl, which is ironic because overuse of one character results in a diversity with all the others.
But yes the mk ban is a good thing right now but later down the road it might change
funny thought: what would happen if they put a character like MK in melee under the current melee metagame?
Meta was the imbalance in the scale. He wasn't S-tier because he was used so damn often, Snake is used nearly the same amount in the pre-ban metagame. He was S-tier because of how he has no disadvantageous match-ups, and his techs and moveset are just far better than every other character's. The metagame is, without a doubt, going to change for the better because there will be more variety, I'd bet a fine sum of cash (if I had a sum of anything at all...) that's what will happen if Meta stays unbanned. I don't know how much or what characters, but usage statistics won't be so consolidated.
Melee had no S-tier, the top tier characters were all viewed as being the best of the lineup, without any one of them being much better than the rest, unless you're comparing the top of Top tier to the bottom and such.
I'm also curious what you mean by this "scale"... If you're talking about just usage statistics, they aren't going to be bad as they were previous to the Meta ban. :P
If you mean change, as in they take away the ban, I'll be mad, bro. ;_; I never thought it'd happen, but now that it has I'm sure as shit happy about it.
That is a lot of writing!
I still stand on my argument.
Even though there might be some "even" match-ups, players still use the unorthodox to battle Meta Knight. A shift in common playstyle or a change common counter-pick can hamper a Meta Knight user, and it is that ability to adapt (either the Meta Knight or the other) that separates the professionals from the imitators.
By having more diverse top tiers, people will use the top tiers to counter the top tiers. This will increase greatly the usage of those characters.
Instead of countering one character, now you have to counter three. and what better to counter one with one of the three.
lol lots of 1s and 3s
And the number of Snake mains will increase.
And he will be a worse problem than Meta Knight.
Meta Knight kept Snake at bay,
But now the flood gates are open!
it could be worse than before the ban.
META Knight, METAgame, METAphor lol
