Very surprised (and intrigued) to see Melee players among the players including Armada and Mango!

I was expecting a much better lineup than what we got. Disappointing.

I was very surprised that Nairo, the most popular Smash 4 player, didn't get invited. We don't even have a USA rep for smash 4. They also felt the need to invite melee players when the chance of them dropping soon after release is high. And if we had to have melee players, why Mango instead of M2K or Hbox? Smash is my favorite series, so I'll still watch, my hype level is just decreased a little.

I'm a Peach main, so by default an Armada fanboy so I'm very happy about that. I do agree that Nairo should have been there. I do wonder if the Melee players are there just to cash a check or if the new Smash game is closer to Melee than Smash 4 was.

I haven't thought about that possibility, but I find it hard to believe that Sakurai would purposely make a game similar to melee. I think that is something that fans would have to discover after we have the full game. Would be interesting though.

Do you know the characters character choices?

Maybe Nintendo chose the people based on trying to get some variety of players. You know, not grabbing the 8 best players who all use Fox or something.



Would have liked to see Leffen and Hungrybox.

It would be nice if this game is much closer to Melee, as it could unify the communities.

Assuming the format is like last time, each player would have to pick a character and stick with it the whole time. They wouldn't have to worry about everyone using the same character. 



Hopefully this time Reggie will be able to do an Up-B to return on stage.
