Finally started messing with the Spirit Board. Pretty quickly got most of the challenges unlocked, & wiped out Joker's entire board. Holy crap, the shield shooting post-game is some annoying freaking crap.

What do you find annoying about the shield-shooting mini game exactly?

....its existence? Like, I just barely beat a Legend-class, but I still don't have the spirit yet? And I might not get it if my input lags or I'm out of SP?

i dont like it either. not because its particularly bad by itself but its just another barrier on top of a spirit battle, which some of those are plenty difficult on their own. its just unnecessary and feels like red tape over something you already earned

It's a mobile game mechanic, totally unneeded. It doesn't help that WoL has a lot of the same spirits with no extra post-battle strings.

hey, I'm with you guys, I don't like it either. I was just wondering if it was a mechanical thing that you didn't like, or a conceptual thing.

^^Oh, I don't even bother fighting WoL spirits on the board.

^Both. I love that the DLC Board doesn't have it.

Speaking of the dumb shooting postgame, this weekend's event was cool (all shields were slowed). Scored some nice Aces & Legends without having to burn up all my shield items.

Hey, does anyone else think it's also kinda crappy that you have to spend SP to use snacks?

A little pointless to be certain. Early on, it just makes you hoard snacks and after a certain point you literally have so much that you'll never run out.

I guess it's to stop someone from grinding up really powerful Spirits really early on, but then whoever does that would get barely anything from the fights anyway. That's, like, the only purpose I can figure out.

^Snacks cap at 999 of each type; I've actually had to toss some for SP so I could then spend SP using more, & then I run low.

Eh, if there's anything I've learned about Smash nerfs it's that they almost always look a lot worse than they actually are.

So, Queen Metroid was pissing me off; I had like 6 losses to her.
Then I remembered something very important: Simon Belmont is in this game.
She barely touched me on that last fight. :)

I was playing some Brawl last night because I don't have all the characters unlocked on my WiiU yet (still need the 3 post-SSE characters), & it reminded me how good Luigi was in that game (& in Smash 4) & how badly the Cyclone nerf hurt him in Ultimate. :frown:

Me: "Gosh, I hate that Smash picked a Persona character with the exact same name as a way more famous character, so it's impossible to talk about him with normal people without having to clarify a million things. Hopefully the next DLC character will have a less confusing name."
Nintendo: "Nope."

At least he's a clone of Shulk instead of Marth. (FYI, I'm totally gonna call him Theero.) And, hey, Banjo-Kazooie! :)

GOKU MADE IT TO SMASH GUYS

....ok but no meme, the Dragon Quest reveal was actually really awesome. I WOULD be more excited for Banjo-Kazooie, because it's very much earned, but I can't erase how obnoxiously ****-ty the Banjo stans were whenever literally anyone who wasnt Banjo was revealed. Like people were responding to the Hero announcement tweet with "JAPANESE FAVORITISM, BANJO DESERVED IT, NO ONE WANTED THIS." like??????? bro, are you for real, A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTED THIS DQ IS HUGE IN JAPAN

It's gotten to the point where I feel like no one can celebrate their own fave getting into Smash without the ones at the top of the popularity bracket being salty it wasn't *theirs* instead. The fact that there's more of a discussion between creator and consumer is cool, but creators should have artistic direction and liberty without fearing death threats and riots if they don't give the masses exactly what they want. I'm clearly biased because Lloyd Irving is not the most popular candidate out there, and I threw my share of fits over all the Fire Emblem rep, but ONE DUDE REPPING A NEW-TO-SMASH AND BELOVED SERIES is hardly something for people to get salty over......

this has been Old Man Yells At Cloud. i think i am done. congrats to everyone who is excited at the new entries!!!!
