Meta Knight is Finally banned in the Us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Meta Knight will be officially banned on January 9th, 2012. Until that date, Meta Knight will be optionally banned in Unity Ruleset 2.0

The Unity Ruleset Committee has come to a majority agreement to ban Meta Knight by a vote of 14-0 with 1 abstaining. In order too ease into this decision and respect the largest Smash tournament on the horizon, the ban will be optional until after Apex 2012. Therefore, on January 9th, it will no longer be optional and all Unity Ruleset events will be Meta Knight banned. Until that time, users may use the Unity Ruleset 2.0 in either form: Meta Knight Banned or Meta Knight Allowed. 

This was not a decision made lightly. This is a topic that has dominated the community for many years and far to long. The URC has taken into account many things, among them: community polls on Smashboards and AllisBrawl over the last 2 years, discussions with some of the top players and minds in the community, and most of all, user created data/charts that have kept tabs on the prevalence of Meta Knight at the over 500 tournaments held yearly. It is important to note that each member of the URC who voted had their own reasons, so any number of factors may have influenced their decision. We hope this will begin a new era in the Brawl community, and while we are sure this decision will cause controversy and discussion, we also feel it will ultimately be for the best for the community in the coming years.

Please note: This ban effects tournaments in the US and Canada - as that is the scope of the Unity Ruleset Committee. In addition, this ban is for both Singles and Doubles play.

Yes starting January! no more Mk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin[size=0]

Here's an idea, if you go against this ruling and hold MK legal tournies in your own scene...

Then travel to a national and probably get raped due to not being able to use MK/not having practice in matchups that aren't MK.

@first vid: not sure if serious.  The fact that his MK was being garbs and almost won is kinda sad.


btw, counter vid(s):

Yep, quite.

I don't think people ban him because he's broken, it's mainly entertainment purposes (which isn't the best argument for banning, hence why I'm against it). People are tired of MK ditto GFs b/c everyone has to resort to MK to win on their opponent's CP.

Banned in tourneys, but that doesn't mean we'll see the last of him. People will still have to learn the matchup in friendlies, etc. But then again a lot of people care too much about the tourneys.
We always see MK thrown at us if we win our first match, I've had the experience and I've usually lost cause of that, but I think that's the main reason people don't like MK, because he's always a solution to your matchup problems. But then after MK goes people are probably gonna switch to the next option (like snake) and there will be a domination of people using him instead.. then it will start yet another discussion to ban them =/
Another reason for this ban I think is that the matchup is too unfair to some characters, giving them absolutely no chance, that's why there's usually a decline in the number of people bringing that character to tourneys. Then when you're up against another character it's actually possible to grab wins.

Even though MK is banned, people are still going to use him on Wifi, there's no way getting passed that. I see that some people will have a better chance of actually placing in a tournament, since MK is banned. More characters will be used, and the game as a whole will have a much better Metagame imo. And to agree with Redd up there, I do believe that is why MK is banned, people will just immediately switch to him if they lost their first match, so they can hopefully get win for the third round. But now we can finally see put apart the good brawl players, and the MK users. No offense to the MK users, i use him once or twice too lol.

I think that we can expect to see from this ban:
- A reduction, not an elimination of the use of MK in online play
- An increase in the variety of characters brought to major tournaments
- A change in the way people view the game
- An increase in the usage of alternative characters such as snake, diddy and olimar
- An increased chance of victory for other characters due to the elimination of the matchup barrier
- A major disadvantage for players, such as M2K, who use MK competitively as a main
- Large changes within the tier list which bring lower tiers upwards
- An increase in competitive spirit in tourneys due to the lost expectation that MK will always win

I can see why Meta Knight being banned would be a great asset to competitive Super Smash Bros. Brawl players, but for casual not-competitive players like myself, it is of no concern for me.

Besides, I don't even use Meta Knight. Maybe I did once or twice a while back just to see what he was like, but I prefer to use other characters that I like and are more fun to play with in my opinion.

It will indeed be interesting to see how things change with MK out of the pictures. Maybe some of the low tiers will actually stand a better chance now.

lol, technically even the tier list isn't an accurate gauge for casual players, because the tier list is built on competitive Brawl, items change things a looooooot (well not a lot, but enough to make a big difference).
