Good to see ARMS getting some major love. Also great to see Smash Bros. Wii U joining the action again. Let's hope the competitors bring some fierce play with them!
ARMS is considered a competitive game...? At the state it's in? (Where not all the characters/items have been added)
Of course the meta has to evolve. Smash was the same, even early on when we didn't know if DLC characters past Mewtwo would be a thing.
If there weren't new characters, there would still be patches. Once the last patch is released, then the meta sort of solidifys. It's just fun evolving with the game though.
I guess so, but at least Smash had a complete game/roster for the first year, with the DLC stuff being more of a bonus than stuff that actually completed the game.
But yeah, I guess I can see your point about the game evolving over time with popularity. (As I hope Pokken will do with the DX version) It's just to me ATM Arms seems like a fast-paced multiplayer game that already had a major update to remove one of the ranked stages, which makes me think the meta hasn't even been established yet for that one. Hopefully it gets complete/balanced enough to be a mainstay though
What's better is that there's no melee scene in japan so i dont have to be board out of my mind watching a 15 year old game for two hours waiting for something better to come on stream
No one's forcing you to watch. Get over it.
