PostSubject: Rules & Characters With Existing Threads (PLEASE READ BEFORE CREATING A TOPIC!!!)   Mon Oct 06, 2014 9:58 pm

Unofficial Characters Board Rules:

• Only one topic per character is permitted. See the list below if you are unsure a topic already exists. Same goes for alternate characters. They will also be treated similar to a separate character with their own topic.

• No suggestions for characters under the category "4th Party". This includes characters from non-video game franchises or characters that aren't owned by video game corporations, such as Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, or Scooby Doo. These requests will be ignored, and the topic will be locked. No exceptions will be made. This includes Nintendo-based characters such as "Non-Specific Action Figure" and Captain N. Goku will remain the ONLY 4th party character in Crusade.

   Types of characters that fall under the '4th Party ban':
   - Anime/Manga Characters
   - Film/Television Characters
   - Characters Originating From Internet Culture/Memes
   - Original Characters
   - Celebrities/Real People
   - Any character who is not owned by a video game corporation. (This includes the former categories.)
   PROTIP: If you aren't sure, ask.

• Users who neglect to obey the above rules will receive a lowered life bar/temporary ban. No exceptions.

• To keep the board looking clean, please use the following guide when naming your topic: (Ignore Brackets)
Code:
[NAME OF CHARACTER] ([SERIES]) Discussion: [OPTIONAL TAGLINE]
    Examples:
      - Lanky Kong (Donkey Kong Country) Discussion
      - Shake King (Wario Land) Discussion: Time to shake things up!
    Faliure to correctly name your topic will result in it getting edited.

• Please attempt to add a semi-lengthy amount of text to your topic. Include details such as the character's history and why they should be included.

• Bumping rules do not apply, post away!

Thank you for reading.

I'm just gonna say here that non-video game character suggestions will be ignored since Goku is the only non-video game character that will be included in Crusade.

OP updated with a set of rules. Please read them even if you have already created a topic.
Links to the specific character threads are also now available from the list.

Those of you who have already created a topic are free to add a tagline to the titles which I have edited accordingly.

Added another rule that should've been obvious enough to figure out when "No 4th party rule" was created. But since it was apparently not obvious enough. I created another rule explaining which other characters that should NOT be suggested. Please look at the first post of this topic.

By yours truly

Question about text descriptons. Both my nominations are updated, but are they descriptive enough?

I feel that there should be a rule that limits the amount of character requests a member can make (atleast for a certain amount of time). Right now, new members are posting multiple character suggestions without putting much effort in their posts. Posts without much thought put into them are just as good as spam.

Agreed, but I kind of understand when most of the characters suggested are simply official Smash characters (and apparently it's ok to make topics for them).

However, we should definitely add a rule against original characters.

Hey Dust, would it be possible for me to either make a topic of a character that already has a topic or become the OP if I can show a better appreciation / understanding of the character? I'd be interested in working on something for Adeleine or Lyn...

I think the rules in regards to "4th Party" and original characters should be combined into one simple rule (that also ties into getting around potential loopholes):

No characters from non-video game franchises or characters that aren't owned by video game corporations.

It prevents characters such as anime/manga characters, as they are owned by the creators of the anime/manga.
It prevents original characters, as obviously those don't come from an actual corporation.
It also prevents cases like Starkiller and Obsidius, who technically debuted in a video game, but are from franchises that are of non-video game origin (Star Wars and Godzilla).

On a potential downside (one that Giga may be opposed to) is that it would also prevent characters like Wreck-It Ralph, since while technically, he appeared in his own video game right before his movie, he's owned by Disney and his "franchise" was created for the purposes of film.

Thank you very much CJ!

List has been updated, the following topics have been locked due to lack of information and/or stolen movesets among other things. They are available to make topics for as of now:

Amy Rose (Sonic the Hedgehog)
Isaac Clark (Dead Space)
Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
Big Daddy (Bioshock)
Gordon Freeman (Half-Life)
Wolf O'Donnel (Star Fox)
Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
Charizard (Pokemon)
Crono (Crono Trigger)
Fierce Deity Link (The Legend of Zelda)
Alucard (Castlevania)
Lyn (Fire Emblem)
Adeline (Kirby)
Ribbon (Kirby)
Captain Syrup (Wario Land)
Geo Stellar (Mega Man)
Mona (WarioWare)
Rosalina (Super Mario Bros.)

Roy is one such topic lacking in information that has been kept around due to the interesting/worthwhile discussion contained within it. This character is still available to make a topic for if you so wish.

I think I've found a decent middleground, let me know what you think. We've seen in the past that too little explanation can be an issue.

Is it good, though? Sora is a character that is owned by Disney, but I'm sure most of us would agree he's a valid character. I'm sure there's other exceptions, but I can't think of any at the moment.

EDIT: What defines a 'video game corporation'? No one probably cares about these characters, but I can imagine certain indie games might no longer qualify.

Ffff-forget Disney. They ruin everything. No to Sora(Edit: I actually like him after watching SSF2 livestream hehehe). Let's go further and ban anything Disney from Crusade. Do it.

I don't see the point of the "videogame corporations" clause.

The "no characters from non-videogame franchises" is good enough and enables candidates such as Ralph and Sora.

I don't think Ralph should count though. Yes, his marketing game was released to the public before the movie BUT the movie was clearly made before the game thus Ralph originated from a movie and NOT a game.

Problem with Ralph is that he'd kinda make Crusade seem a little dated. Most Disney franchises aren't touched for a long period of time, and while we know a sequel for the film is planned we don't know what's happening with it past then. Or when the second film is even going to be released.

The marketing game for Ralph is for the kids that are hyped for the movie, nothing more, but let's be smart about this. Has anyone played the game on any platform? Does it feel like a generic movie tie-in video game? I'd guess yes, hahahahaha.

I rather go with Sora since he's on the handheld now. I also change my feelings about Sora. I was watching him on the SSF2 Beta livestream. He's okay if you can do something creative like SSF2 using a move list that pops up behind him, but you choose what attack you wanna use instead of it being random like SSF2 does.

Is it good, though? Sora is a character that is owned by Disney, but I'm sure most of us would agree he's a valid character. I'm sure there's other exceptions, but I can't think of any at the moment.

EDIT: What defines a 'video game corporation'? No one probably cares about these characters, but I can imagine certain indie games might no longer qualify.

I don't see the point of the "videogame corporations" clause.

The "no characters from non-videogame franchises" is good enough and enables candidates such as Ralph and Sora.

The corporations clause was intended be a means to prevent loophole abuse using logic such as "*insert character* is technically eligible because while *insert franchise* is generally non-gaming media, a video game to promote *insert franchise* came first!"
Using Disney as an example, they typically have games for their movies before the movie is released.
One (unfortunate) example I can give is Finding Nemo, a game I got alongside a brand new Gamecube for my birthday years back.
The game was released May 11 (PC) and May 12 (consoles) of 2003 while the movie was in theaters May 30.
Without the corporation clause, Nemo/Marlin/Dory would all be technically eligible.

Granted, Ralph is more of a gray area, because not only was he given a movie tie-in game before the movie came out, but the video game he comes from in-universe was de-fictionalized into an actual arcade cabinet game months before the movie released.

I played Fix-It Felix on an arcade cabinet. Honestly, it kind of sucked... it was missing a lot of elements from the movie (iirc it just scrolled upwards infinitely for each level, Ralph never got thrown off the roof).

How can we edit the clause so Sora is eligible, though? Clearly the fact that a non-video game corporation owns the character doesn't make the character ineligible.

I like that rule though. Makes good sense.

We can make only one exception, pick a few realistic video game characters that are strangely owned by non-corporate entities (my pick Sora. He's from a really good game) and put it to a vote within the team. After they pick one character, think up some movesets and so on, then they can decide to go with it or not. If they do, make him an unlockable, and keeping him secret until someone figures out how to unlock him.

If we can't have characters that originated from internet culture/memes, then why is WeeGee in the game?

Weegee was added into the game at the time when Crusade was still open to add these non-gaming additions.

After the additions of Goku and Weegee, the request for more non-gaming characters got carried away. The development team didn't want the roster to go in a direction to where it takes away the focus of actual gaming characters. This eventually lead to Goku being our only anime/cartoon character and Weegee being our only internet culture/meme character.
