This post could use more smash related substance, going back to that tier hopes stuff I just hope my favourites don't end up at the top, throw all types of mii as the bottom three.
Good point. I didn't put it in my list, but it'd be lovely if Mii's were bad enough that no one wants to ever play them. I'm not a big fan of them, though I was expecting and almost hoping for them to go ahead and be in this Smash.

You'll get a post explaining how the Bulborbs in Smash Run work and you'll like it.

Don't worry, no avatar betting is happening on a list-wide basis at least where I'm concerned. People can do that shit individually or use the lists for that purpose if they want, but the lists I've been maintaining (and have been asked to maintain) are strictly just for fun.

I'm going to make a Google Docs survey so people can sign up if they choose.

I also need some ideas for avatars, got one from Toxi for #TeamFake but that's it.

Why do you guys think it's fake?
Because I always treat leaks with suspicion until proven otherwise. Since there's no proof that this is undeniably true I'm going with fake.

No matter the result I don't lose. Whereas if I thought it was real and started to believe this is what we're getting and then it turns out it isn't I might end up disappointed.

Basically #TeamFake is the safer option.

Get well soon :)

If you guys are setting up team-sided avatar bets, you'll need to have a baseline for what would prove the leak real or fake. Also, I will probably want in. =P

I dunno, I'm kind of leaning real and hoping it's fake. So if it is fake what we actually get might be less disappointing.

That gives me a fantastic idea for a #TeamReal vs. #TeamFake avatar bet.

Whichever team loses, everyone on that side has to wear some kind of avatar for a week.

I just want to say, I really dislike when people propose this. We clearly have people on both sides who don't frequent this topic that often who might not even see this. Also, no one ever signed up for an avatar bet just by saying they're on "#TeamReal" or "#TeamFake".

True. There are more newcomers than I expected there, but I hate the cuts. I'd honestly rather have Lucas, Wolf, and Ice Climbers back than have Jr, DHD Dog, and the two clones.

I'd be happy still though because Shulk.

I've already made my avatar (though I've designed it so that it could change based on how the leak is proven) so I'd rather stick with the option that allows me to give that to someone.

Though I'm disappointed that the person who said they'd take up a bet with me hasn't posted since so no idea if the bet is technically on. No fun in giving an avatar to someone who doesn't show their face much so I may be available for a one on one bet with someone.

I don't have any hopes for bottom tiers, so instead I'll name my 10 top tier characters
1. Ganondorf
2. Bowser
3. Kirby
4. Mega Man
5. Sonic
6. Mario
7. Samus
8. Link
9. DK
10. Pikachu/Pac-Man


I feel the same. Actively hoping a character is bad seems weird to me. My top 10, only using confirmed characters:

Sonic
Bowser
Pac-Man
Little Mac
Charizard
Captain Falcon
Rosalina
Villager
Luigi
Samus

Again, neglecting the DLC part of MOTHERFUCKING LEAKER's leak.

We wanna know what you think about the leak's authenticity, not whether you're scared to be wrong ;)

I've posted many reasons why it can be fake and seeing as I'm willing to take an avatar bet over this I'm not exactly scared (also I've wanted to take part in one anyway so this is a good opportunity).

Sorry, meant to say I'd rather have those actuallly back. Even if the DLC list is real, DLC characters are undoubtedly second class citizens. Unless they're included in the package with the Wii U version. Then I guess I don't really care.

I'm not gonna be up when the pic goes up, so I'm gonna get both of these scenarios out of the way first.

If tonight disproves the leak:

This is why I'm doing a Google Doc survey for this. Explicit permission is given when you fill out a survey, instead of just posting on the forum. MaverickHunterAsh has his own list.

We've abandoned her, and now we're paying the price. Leaks coming out of

nowhere, tearing us apart. We need her godly grace now more than ever, to put an end to all of this. To bring the leak roller coaster to a decisive end.

Out of curiosity, I visited an archive of Nintendo of America's webpage shortly after the release of Super Smash Bros. in North America: https://web.archive.org/web/19990427192531/http://www.nintendo.com/home/index.html

There's a link there to the Super Smash Bros. Slamfest '99 which was held on April 24 that year: https://web.archive.org/web/1999090...t.com/nintendo/19990424/product_announcement/

It was a live broadcast wrestling match between the characters in the original commercial - Pikachu, Yoshi, Mario and Donkey Kong. Held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to promote the the release of the game on April 26. Now, I haven't been able to find much information about this at all, the only thing I could find was a writeup and some photos from a Tripod site called Zelda 64 Central, apart from the information available on the site hosted by MediaOnDemand.com:

At the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mario and Yoshi squared off with Donkey Kong and Pikachu. The "Slamfest" was being broadcasted over the internet live. The excitement was there. The thrill was there. The crowd was there.

Mario and Donkey would start the match. Donkey Kong, being much larger than our favorite plumber, quickly took Mario out. Yoshi came in and got his revenge on the gorilla. Pikachu would come in for the monkey only to be knocked down by Yoshi's lethal tail.

Then, before anyone knew it, Mario went crazy. He wiped out Donkey Kong, Pikachu, and his own teamate, Yoshi. Ultimately, the match would end in a crash which knocked out everyone resulting in a draw. "Everyone is a winner!" the announcer yelled.

Wow, just like a Barney episode gone bad. It sucked...

Even though I wasn't able to go see the match myself(I uhh...lost my plane tickets, yeah, that's right...), I was able to question a member of the audience, 8 yr. old, Maree O'Brothers. When I asked him what he thought of the fight, he said, "It was rigged you idiot. It was just a stupid promotion for a video game. Get a life!". His comment left me thinking how sad the youth of today is...so sad, so young, so innocent...

The archived page of the event can be crawled from earliest September 8, 1999, but there's no media there.

A link to a rebroadcast of the event is there, but it doesn't work:: http://media.internetbroadcast.com/nintendo/19990424/product_announcement/meta/rebroadcast.ram

Mario, Yoshi and Pikachu have working descriptions, the page for Donkey Kong does not work.

Mario

"The Italian Stallion" is the clear favorite in this match, given his background in battling against the odds. Mario has the advantage of experience in fighting Donkey Kong in many epic construction site battles. It’s anyone’s guess how he’ll fare against the big ape in the ring, especially with his best friend, Yoshi, out to give him a licking at the same time!

Odds: 3-2
Yoshi

"The Dinosaur of Disaster" is anything but extinct when he enters the ring! Yoshi will float like a butterfly and lick like a hound dog when he finally gets a chance to get even with his buddy Mario for all those years of listening to his whining as a baby!

Odds: 4-1
Pikachu
"The Beast from the Far East" may look like nothing more than a giant yellow rat, but Pikachu is a spark-plug of pugilistic power. Star of the hit Pokemon game and television show, and adored around the world, Pikachu will have legions of Pokemaniacs in his corner rooting him on towards victory. Noting his short reach and small size, oddsmakers aren’t giving him much of a chance, but Pikachu might just surprise everyone.



I wonder if they could perhaps make a similar event for the Wii U release. Perhaps they could team up with WWE and have some famous wrestlers get into those suits and duke it out.



Could be something like this maybe (of course would have required a lot of planning):
