We don’t have control over other tournaments besides EVO (At least I think we don’t) so more than likely items will probably be off since everyone else follows smashboards rules. That simple enough for you? This thread better not become some bitch fest.
I love items for fun matches with friends. But seriously, they are far too random for professional tournaments. The only thing I could see an argument for is Smash Balls, since the way they are implemented makes it a certain degree of skill to grab and use them, and in many cases they are strategically interesting to a character’s game too.
unless you’re arguing for tournament stability, that’s a pretty bad argument. I’ve played with items on plenty of times in Melee and SSBB. I have heard of this exact situation happening only one other time in Melee. also, if bombs were the only ones like that, why not just take out all bombs? last but not least, you can pick up an item in the midst of attack in SSBB. i’m not calling you dumb or anything, it can be pretty easy to overlook stuff… but maybe that’s why you got neg repped
this is kinda how I feel. except I’ll play with items if I have to, don’t really care. but I prefer them off
SSBB was made for 4 people to play at the same time. In a multiplayer game, specifically FFA, chaos = BIG fun. In fact, chaos is what MAKES games like these fun. about the random aspects of the items, I think those were put in to make it so getting them didn’t mean it was game over.
