Studie avslöjar esportfavoriter i Smash Bros Ultimate
Super Smash Bros Ultimate släpptes förra månaden och har inte hunnit göra esportavtryck ännu. Redditorn BarnardsLoop presenterar dock en rapport baserad på 88 utvalda event i spelet där det avslöjas vilka figurer som är mest populära. Wolf dominerar i topp, men när det kommer till 'super-regional' eller nationella event innehas topplatserna istället av Pichu, Fox och Snake:
"Fox is probably the biggest surprise, sitting at #6 on All and #1 on National, winning multiple notable events. NYXL, a Tristate event, was listed as category 2 in my system (imo a mistake in hindsight), so it should be noted that Fox arguably has the most noteworthy Top 3 placements of any character so far with Light having won that event.
This isn't as surprising as one might think - despite nerfs from 4, Fox was arguably top 5 in Sm4sh, and every character above him (Sheik, Diddy Kong, Cloud, Bayonetta) very clearly received a large quantity of nerfs. If Fox's nerfs were less impactful than the nerfs applied to his superiors and several of his arguable juniors (see ZSS, Rosalina, etc.) it makes sense he would be among the best outside of newcomers/returnees or heavily buffed mid/low tiers from 4."
