They kneecapped everyone else who still wanted to make the mod with a bullshit C&D scare just so their game would have no competition.

>>
>>423947824
No retard. They didn't move aside and work on their own stuff. They deleted months of hard work without telling the rest of the team, shut down everything, hung everyone not in their clique out to dry, and pretended they had a C&D so they could work on Icons without fearing that PM would ever compete with them. They even actively went after anyone trying to continue the project based off the leaks for months.

>only character im interested in playing isn't even initially unlocked
Only melee clone characters are available at the start, why. 3 of 7 characters are playable without paying or unlocking
>>
>>423944695
My only gripe with this game is the character models aren't that good. They need more animation, more character. The games they're from have that character but it didn't transfer well in 3d.
>>
>>423948414
The irony is, had they simply been honest with everyone, and left in goodwill while still allowing anyone to work on whatever they pleased, and pick up where they left off, a lot more people would have been open to seeing what they could accomplish with their own project.

I mean, that's what the Card Saga Wars guys did. They simply said "look guys, we're gonna drop this cause we'd rather work on something we can actually live off of, and won't land us with legal troubles. But here, look, we're releasing all our unfinished work to the public for you to see." And they did, and I'm more than interested to see what they can do with an original IP, and the CSW prototype is boss, and people are more than entitled to do that.

The problem is these fucks let the eSports glory get to their heads, and screwed over everyone invested in the project, fans and team members alike, and then lied it about it all.

Fuck them.

And their disappointing turd of a game deserves to fucking flop. Hell, I'd be more forgiving toward Icons, if it wasn't Icons, the shameless, uninspired tryhard ripoff of Melee, but an actual passion project that's creative abd unique.

Everything about Icons, from the namez to the aesthetic to the art, is sterile and calculated, and openly shows just hpw bigheaded the devs are. It's 100% built with the intention if trying to be an eSport and nothing else. Even fucking LoL began as a community driven, casual passion project between friends before getting to where it is today.

You're gonna have to either ask around for the screencaps or look up the archives. But various members of the PMDT have come out and spoken up. One of them being one of the ones who leaked the unifinished build that had Lyn, Knuckles, etc... I think his name was Wizzrobe or something. Another blew up at Strongbad on a Reddit QA as well.

But it's all been explained multiple times by exmembers, there never was a CnD, just internal drama due to a portion of the group being very closed off and clique and treating everyone else like shit. That group included people like:

Strongbad
Warchamp
Hylian
Nanobuds
SilentDoom

among others, and most of that group is currently working at Wavedash. Also, note that Wavedash as a company was formed about a year before PM got killed.

Casual Business Man and Fish look good. I think the problem is all their girl characters lack personality in the model. It feels like they need some polish, some cutsey animations an more expressions.

Slap City is a crossover game though, I doubt itll have any brand new characters.

Be fair, most of these games start off with tiny rosters. Rivals released with 8, and Slap City looks to be releasing with the same.

The only exceptions are Brawlout and Brawlhalla, and the latter only has so many because the whole cast uses the same base sprite, animations, and attacks. It's really jarring just looking at how a heavy and a speedster are both the same size and have the same stance.

Ranno unrelated.

LoL got its start by destroying the biggest DotA fansite around with no warning, all in the name of advertising. It's actualyl somewhat reminiscent of what Wavedash did to PM.
>>
>>423956197
TE is tournament friendly with a new alt skin for every fighter and a bunch of competitive stages, and LXP is a fun modpack with new characters and tournament-unfriendly stages. TE is for tryhards and streamers, LXP is for funsies with your friends

Remedy. Those flasks and remote bombs are too much fun.

XP adds new characters to project m from several mods like geno, ridley, and shadow plus a ton of stages. TE is like melee TE and has the normal cast of characters with more legal stages and quality of life improvements
>>
>>423956373
TE is an extension for PM 3.6 that adds more tourney legal stages, it comes with a dolphin netplay build too
XP is an overall massive expansion to PM that adds several characters and has almost every stage as of smash 4, it comes with it's own Dolphin build to even work on PC as it's massive, but also supports Wimmfi as well on actual hardware.

>>423956373
Legacy TE is XP with cut content to make it tournament friendly. XP is more fun.

I remember at the big house 7 last year they fucking told everyone to stop watching people play melee because the wii u tiers were taking a break before top 8 and they had to shill this GARBAGE game. they were getting pissed and told everyone to quiet down even though people were on a stage about 20ft from them still playing melee on a projector. made me hate it just because of that.

What's the audience for this game?
Meleefags already have Melee, and the rest of the Smash players are just waiting for Ultimate in december.

People like me that think melee is the best game mechanically, but find the meta boring. I like Icons gameplay but fucking hell I hate wildstar aesthetics.

I love third strike, but doesn't mean I want to exclusively play third strike forever. I play sf5 even though it is fundamentally a worse game.

>>423957334

Meleefags. The problem with Icons and every other Samsh clone is that trying to appeal to the competitive scene is a death sentence. The main appeal of Smash is the characters and all the fun modes.

Competitive Melee is the speedrunning of fighting games. Only a few people bother to learn the tech needed to compete at the highest level because it's so wacky and unintended, and the rest of its popularity is from watching those people execute.

Nobody new wants to get into the competitive Melee scene, they'd just play the newest Smash with the most content and shit.

When was it decided that people cannot like Smash' gameplay and can only like its characters? I like smash because it's fun to play. Is that suddenly not allowed? Can people only be Meleefags or rosterfags?

Speaking of gameplay: Icons doesn't feel horrible to handle. But it is aggressively bland. Like they went out of their way to make every character the blandest character.

I get it, overwatch and mobas are the big thing and they want to be all big eatsports. But did they not notice that these are a different crowd to the smash community and fgc? We like different things, I can get pulling in a bit of a different crowd but you got to get that core support first.

This >>423952759 is an appealing design. It looks a bit like Shinobu, with an 80s anime look, it is known, not over used and pretty inoffensive. That is a moba skin >>423961096 , it literally has overwatch's skin menu.

8 is what they're launching with. The game is early access. I'm sure if the game gets enough support they'll add more. And it does appear the game is pretty popular.

Games like BlazBlue had an extremely small roster and that was way higher budget. Over the years BlazBlue has a massive roster now. All fighting games tend to start off small and slowly build up wether it's patches or new releases.
>>
The game has other problems, but I really think changing the designs could give it a chance. It is a shame they aren't listening cause look is so important to a fighting game. If their was some waifus people would defend it being just melee, skullgirls at least started with the idea of being a new MvC2 but sold despite that cause tits and ass. Not saying it has to be lewd, but I need something to be attached to. I gravitate towards slap city characters cause they are all hilarious in how dumb they are.

The graphics in general aren't good mind you, but a lot of stuff like better stage lighting could be added more easily.
>>
>>423967135
I never said melee players don't smell. I'm telling you that you smell as well.
I can't be bothered with the comp scene with smash because everyone is either an unwashed fat fuck or an autist. Nobody just fucking plays the game. Doesn't matter which one it is. The only cool people in the smash community play netplay almost exclusively and I never have to worry about how recently they've bathed.

no it's about the second part. how can you say netplay players are "cool" and "just play the game" if you admittedly don't participate in tournaments since there's no real netplay events to this day? Netplay is on the whole where you find the biggest faggots and whenever I've tried to find matches, really bad players.

I think you might need to find better groups. The only trouble I've ever had with netplay was trying to play with people cross country. Other than that it was just like playing any other fighter online. Smash ladder is pretty good all things considered. I never have to deal with any whiners and matches flow like water. Seems to me that anyone in a system like that would naturally be cooler than someone who goes out in public with fungus in his rolls.

This game feels like 15 FPS sped up. You can barely tell what either person's character is about to do. I think there's pretty much no input buffer but most modern controllers are going to have buttons that are difficult to press as precisely as the Gamecube's. The presentation is fucking 0/10, the announcer voice is awful. And I thought this was supposed to be a Melee successor, and yet there's only three stocks?

I'd say the game's single biggest issue is its choppiness, followed by its genuniely soulless presentation. As it stands I don't see why you wouldn't just play Melee on Netplay or wait for Ultimate for drop.
