J Tyran said:Okay as someone thats never played any Smash Brothers game ever can anyone explain this to me, do you actually get kicked from games or temp banned for going to town on someone to lock them down and keep them out of a match? What happens if they have a strong char for that match and you want to keep them out of it as much as possible, or they could be a weak link and locking them down so their team is -1 for much of the match helping you win.
Whats the point of that? Its like those dedicated multiplayer servers with a ten page "fair play" and "honour" policy of obscure community rules like "you killed that player once so you cannot kill them again until they kill you" and if you come across them you have do nothing and get killed or they whine in chat to get you vote kicked.
Did you ever have that one childhood friend you would always beat at games or someone else would? If so you would probably have heard them say at one point or another "Mom/Dad told me it's fair to let others win sometimes too!" they exclaim while trying to hold back tears. I had a friend like that when i was younger and I was even helping him try to get good at the game so they could earn their victory fair and square, what good is victory if it's just given to you? What is the point of a game if you don't try to win? You can have fun while doing it and they can too, they just need to not care so much about the winning if they end up losing and try to get better instead... if that makes any sense to you.
Nintendo has the mindset of the child in this story.
