  3. Do you main characters because you like them or because of their tier placement?

You main characters because you like who they are, or like the game series they represent? or you main them because they are in a good tier placement and just like to win?

Because I love 'em. Couldn't care about competitive play, outside of watching it.

Both.

I’ll more often than not pick characters that I love. As long as they have options and can semi-consistently win games, I’ll stick with them. I think as a general rule of thumb, you should be well-versed in a top/high tier that you like both character and playstyle wise.

I also like playing characters I don’t necessarily love or even like. I like to learn new characters and explore what they can do. Smash is a lot more fun when you branch out your options.

Absolutely because I like them

I mained Ganondorf since Brawl. Should tell you how much I care about tier lists.

bit of both

I'll play the characters with the best tails first, and then shuffle around till I land on one I can main and do well with.

That said, Mewtwo and Ridley are the two I have my eye on, and at the very least Mewtwo is looking strong so that might not be an issue this time.
TailLover here! I think tails are amazing and would love to have one, I bet it would feel amazing.

Both. There are plenty of characters on the roster I like so I'm not going to saddle myself to someone who is straight up terrible when I want to play seriously.
Thanks for saving fighting games Goku!
