Smash Bros Switch Roster Prediction Competition

Recommended Posts

Oh those are negative points?  I was reading it as I had 27 points and was wondering how the hell because I'm pretty sure I've only suggested Rick and sadly that's not happened...yet.
No, its a hyphen.

I'm winning.

Fixed it now. Now it's a hyphen.

Damn, this is still going. And I still haven't bought this Alexandria Library of video game history.

I'm losing my Nintendo touch, but I'm deep into some indie games now. Namely Shovel Knight's expansions. 

One game at a time is the way to go with my income right now:laughing:

Welp, here we go.

No-one predicted Min Min, so scores remain the same. It will come to the surprise of no-one that most people went for Spring Man 2 years ago. But special shout out to @Jonnas for this particular one.

2.Twintelle (ARMS) - Going against the grain, here. I figure, since ARMS doesn't have a single, well-defined protagonist, they'll go with the most popular character.

I know 2 years is a long time for situations to change and all, but...

So close with that one, tough break...

My reasoning wasn't wrong! That's what makes this so frustrating, I suppose. But Min-Min's pretty cool.

On the other hand, Rayman is back in the race! :yay:

Really my negative 27 points should go to Sakurai for not including Rick yet.

Another update, but I'm afraid it's an unhappy one. Because it's time to take a trip down The Avenue of Crushed Dreams.

Minus point for this lame-o:

@Fused King

BTW, me on the first page...

I actually considered Travis for one of my picks, but decided against it in the end.

Oh, you want to make your prediction official? Because the way you phrased it made it seem like you were only semi-serious. But I'd be happy to oblige.

Naturally, I'd have to also take into account the "number of characters" penalty I apply for how far off you are there, which would leave you with a grand total of minus 29 points.

That cool with you?

I kinda want a penalty for making it official so late in the game too. Can I have minus 30?

To be honest it was kind of a joke, but I'd be happy to be on the list :p

Same here, just pointing out the hopelessness of having a list of 1.

Can't believe I'm still on top of a list I don't even own yet:eek:

I'm waiting for the Ultimate Ultimate edition for the Switch Pro Deluxe U

I'll update this tomorrow when more people have a chance to catch up on who the next character is.

EDIT: Never mind, no-one called it. Score remains the same.

Well, this is awkward...

(Forgive the rubbish formatting and lack of mentions, I'm limited to my phone and it's too awkward to implement them)

Pyra (Not Rex) correctly predicted by:

@Dcubed

Mythra (Not Rex) correctly predicted by:

No-one

Yes, they count as two separate characters. They're number 79 and 80 on the Smash site. Kinda like how Pokémon Trainer counts as three fighters. Who would've thought we'd get 7 characters in this pass?

BTW, that means Smash Ultimate will have 30 characters that weren't in Smash 4 now! And that means everyone loses a point from the roster size penalty!

A lot of people mentioned Pyra/Mythra as being part of a possible Rex moveset (including me), but that's not good enough. Only people who put them down as the actual character count.

Special shout out to @Julius for this though.

Quote

I wasn’t too sure how Pyra could be included (I don’t think a Rosalina/Luma situation would work in the same way) beyond Rex’s Final Smash, so I’ve left her out.

That's a big "Oof" right there.

Sorry, I can't update the scores on my phone. Just look at the Steve post and subtract a point from everyone except Dcubed and that's the score so far.

That's the end of this fighter pass right? And there'll be another one? Quite glad I did not shell out for this one.

They both take up a single slot on the website despite having two seperate numbers, we might still get 2 more DLC fighters after this.

A lot of people are thinking Pyra/Mythra takes two slots, and I don't understand the confusion. They obviously transform into one another, you can't buy them separately.
