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

Combination of liking the characters themselves and how well the play style clicks with me

I mostly play vs CPU or casual, so I don't care about tiers. I just play whatever I think is fun and looks cool.

Kind of both. I like to main Mr. Game & Watch in every Smash Bros. game, including Melee, where he isn't even viable because I don't play Melee competitively, but even though I really like Jigglypuff and Zelda as characters, I wouldn't play them to win because they're...not very good.

It's weird. I kind of pick them because of tier placement. I want to have a bad character on standby for one group of friends and a good one on standby for another group.

So I main Dedede for the low tiers, and Rosalina for the high tiers. I have a friend who religiously checks tier lists and gets mad if I don't take him seriously.

That's not to say I don't like these characters, and I would still main both of them, provided both don't become high tier. Fine if both are low tier. And I enjoy their personalities and designs too, but both are secondary to their play style. I like the Duck Hunt dog. Duck Hunt was the first video game I played, but I don't like it's playstyle, so I don't play it much.

Cause I like them, other than Ice Climbers, who are my ... "main" mains, all my other characters are typically low to mid tier, such as Game & Watch, Ness, R.O.B. etc.

Purely based on whether I like them or not. I don't play professionally and don't go after tier, even if it's interesting to look at tiers etc.

I use who I want. I don't care about tiers and stuff like that.

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.

C'mon and ride the Smash hype train! #djoctavio4ssb5 https://goo.gl/3rWEJP https://goo.gl/qVWTgC

Those who play Smash for tiers play for the wrong reasons.

  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  3. Do you main characters because you like them or because of their tier placement?
