ROUND ONE: Super Smash Bros. Stages Bracket! (LIP'S STICK BRACKET)
 

The next round begins! I will try to post NEW polls every two days or so, even if the other still has a little time left. It really just depends on my schedule at the time. Results will come around the same time too. For now though, I present the second bracket in this big event and that's the Lip's Stick Bracket. The bracket names were chosen by selecting non-franchise-based Smash Bros. weapons. Lip's Stick I believe did come from a game.. but not any which had a stage. If I'm wrong, then oops. I think there's a bit more 'tough' pairings with this side of the bracket. So have at it!

Every vote counts!

1.) I voted Yoshi in the last round but when up against the uniqueness of PictoChat, I'm all for the latter.

2.) I really do NOT like the Temple much at all. It's a bit big and the setting bores me. One of my two most missed and cherished levels is the Great Bay. Ironically the other one is also in this poll...

3.) I like the look of Fountain of Dreams a lot. Not sure what about it but with Norfair, while cool, always annoyed me when I didn't make it in one of those capsules in time.

4.) Mushroom Kingdom was such a cool throwback level and I believe the ONLY unlockable level in the original game. I easily loved it and continue to. Being up against Pokemon Stadium is pretty challenging though I'd say... that's a good level too.

5.) I enjoy this Metroid level. The random and quick flipping. The music. The look. Peach's Castle is too segregated with the spire and all.

6.) Smashville, hands down. Simple. Effective. I love the graphics and theme and finally soon I can play as the Villager in Smash! FINALLY!

7.) Hyrule Castle is that other level that I wish they would bring back. It was maybe al little small but I love the concept and the tornado and all that jazz. It's horizontal but also vertical. Kongo Jungle feels... I dunno... not as good.

8.) This was a tough choice for me. I almost went with Mute City but I feel like Mario Kart's level did the same but more my style. WarioWare actually kind of rips on PictoChat but in it's own awesome way. I've also learned to appreciate the WarioWare series since Brawl came out.

(26) Yoshi's Story (Melee)
 vs. (56) PictoChat (Brawl)

Yoshi's Story is a great stage, definitely Yoshi's best. But PictoChat is one of my very favorites.

(23) Temple (Melee/Brawl) vs. (
13) Great Bay (Melee)

Tough call. Temple gets too zoomed-out in group fights but is a pretty epic 1v1 stage. Great Bay is more consistent but I'm not crazy about its layout.

(38) Norfair (Brawl) vs. (12) Fountain of Dreams (Melee)

Why so many rising lava stages, Metroid? I do think Norfair is the best of its kind, but Fountain of Dreams is an all-time great.

(20) Pokemon Stadium (Melee/Brawl) vs. (
9) Mushroom Kingdom (N64)

I guess Mushroom Kingdom was the first stage without side pits, huh? Never cared for those much. Pokemon Stadium 1 is pretty good.

(21) Princess Peach's Castle (Melee)
 vs. (39) Frigate Orpheon (Brawl)

I like both, but I think Peach's Castle has a nice unique layout, being a pretty normal Smash stage other than its center tower. Pressuring the opponent into the corner is like fighting game 101 but you never really see it in Smash, and the center tower sort of provides that to either side. And the Bullet Bills are a cool and dangerous hazard while being pretty avoidable.

(54 Skyworld (Brawl)
 vs. (47) Smashville (Brawl)

Skyworld's destructible floors sound fun on paper, not so much in practice. Smashville is just a good neutral stage.

(3) Hyrule Castle (N64)
 vs. (17) Kongo Jungle (Melee)

Kongo Jungle's okay from what I remember, but Hyrule Castle edges it out.

(18) Mute City (Melee)
 vs. (49) WarioWare, Inc (Brawl)
WarioWare can be a lot of fun, but Mute City blew my mind in Melee and has just the right amount of crazy.

Some tough ones this time around.

(26) Yoshi's Story (Melee)
 vs. (56) PictoChat (Brawl)

(23) Temple (Melee/Brawl) vs. (
13) Great Bay (Melee)

(38) Norfair (Brawl) vs. (12) Fountain of Dreams (Melee)

(3) Hyrule Castle (N64)
 vs. (17) Kongo Jungle (Melee)

(18) Mute City (Melee)
 vs. (49) WarioWare, Inc (Brawl)

1) PictoChat is one of my favorite Brawl stages. I like interesting levels that have just enough crazy without being too pesky, and it's a clever way to get more representation in the game.

2) Ooh, this one was very close. At the end, I'm going with Great Bay because of it's terrific music and smaller scale. Temple is fun on occasion, but it's always felt kinda imbalanced (head to the cavern if you have high %!). It does make for a nice change of pace though.

3) Fountain of Dreams has a great atmosphere to it and is fun to fight on.

4) I like Pokemon Stadium's "showdown" feel and transforming elements. It's a good level for sure.

5) Frigate gets this for being a Metroid Prime stage (and not having lava)! I didn't care much for the bisected Mario level.

6) Smashville is a terrific neutral level and has lovely visuals and sounds. A newer classic!

7) Hyrule Castle! Oh man, great stage and my favorite from the N64 game. Just the right size, too. Kongo Jungle is okay but has just about the worst non-Sonic Smash music ever.

8) This is the other super-close one for me. I really like WarioWare's creativity, but at the end of the day, I remember Mute City being a big "wow factor" stage upon Melee's release. A stage that blasted forward and had racers flying by!? It was kind of mind-blowing at the time.
Posted: 09/26/14, 06:45:19
I"m surprised by all the Great Bay votes. Temple to me feels like the iconic Smash Bros. stage.
Posted: 09/26/14, 06:48:16
Temple is too damn big. Leads to matches that never end.
Posted: 09/26/14, 06:49:01
@Zero

Alternate analysis: Leads to epic fights.

What's cooler than when someone falls off one of the right top edge and manages to save themselves at the bottom?

@Jargon

In contrast, what happens when you and someone else are over in one side of the stage and items you want start dropping somewhere else, making it take up to 10 seconds just to go reach. Then the really high tower on the far right, good for making people chase you up it I guess but the AI never fell for it anyway.

Never was much a fan myself.

For some reason the quote button isn't working for me in this thread. Oh well, guess I'll have to do it the hard way..

8. (18) Mute City (Melee)
 vs. (49) WarioWare, Inc (Brawl)

1. Yoshi's Story is just another Battlefield layout, but PictoChat is actually a neat idea for a stage.
2. I like both these but I'll give the nod to Temple. It's one of the few large stages in the series which is the main thing that makes it stand out, but I do still like the layout. Plus the music is awesome. It'd be nice to see some more larger stages in the series.
3. Fountain of Dreams is yet another Battlefield skin, but, Norfair was kind of awful with how intrusive is the lava. It's more like a battle against the stage than anything else, so Fountain of Dreams wins by default. It has great music anyway.
4. Pokémon Stadium is a nice stage with the shape-shifting and all, but Mushroom Kingdom is the first retro stage and has a nice layout to boot. The warp pipes, scale, and POW block were all nice little touches.

5. I like Peach's Castle, it's perhaps a little small but it's nice. I didn't even remember the Frigate until seeing it, so I don't think I like it.
6. Both of these are kind of bland but Skyworld has a better layout.
7. Hyrule Castle is still my fave stage in the whole series, it's a shame it's never been included as a retro stage. It's a nice size and just has a good layout for interesting battles.
8. The WarioWare stage is a neat idea but I feel the transitions into microgames could have been handled better. Still, I don't really like Mute City, so WarioWare will take it.

The main thing this bracket contest is doing is reminding me just how bad most of Brawl's stages were. I hope the new game does a better job.

@DrFinkelstein

Then it's a mad dash to the item! If you even knew it was there. In Melee, the computer would always know when something good fell and would head up there, usually with a slight head start, so it was cool to try and beat them to it.
