I really don't have any "mains" yet, since 80% of my play time has been in Battle Arenas with friends, and 90% of the time I go with Random. I wish I could see a distribution across the whole cast in one screen, because it has a very gradual drop from the top.
But I'm hoping I can make it work with Sonic and/or Mega Man this time around. I really want to have fun with my classic blue buds. Luckily they're both more fun to play this time around, especially Sonic, who isn't as encouraged to just spin-dash back and forth anymore. He definitely struggles against projectiles, but he's got the mobility to eventually get in. And Mega Man is just so versatile.
@GameDadGrant I was, too, but I don't think the issue is that widespread. Just back up to the cloud, disable automatic backup, and go to town! I used PP in a bunch of modes, but couldn't recreate the bug. Neither could Nintendo, apparently.
@J.K. Riki I had an idea for the development challenge posed by a Break the Targets mode that works with 80 characters:
Create-The-Targets Mode! With online sharing. Even just based off of a few static stage layouts. Let the community pick up the slack! With smart leaderboard integration and in-game cash rewards for both creation and play performance, this could be phenomenal.
@Anand I would like to see CPUs in friend rooms, the ability to play the co-op Quickplay with an online friend, or other stuff along those lines. At this point, I think that's the only kind of stuff which would get me to pop in this game again. I haven't even yet bothered to check out Piranha Plant.
