Neutral game is a very nuanced concept and that surely has earned it's place in the smash bros wiki page. But if you can't get out to disadvantage or find a way to reset to neutral and maintain advantage state, the player will have trouble succeeding in a match and I feel not everyone is aware of each state of play. Of course, looking the habit of the other player and learning of their gameplan is what we sometimes use neutral for but it's much grander and hard to explain with out the other 2 stages, at least in my opinion. Although in some senses, improving your neutral can help on it's own and you can improve your advantage state by learning not only combos but instead of maintaining of a combo, go for hits the other player doesn't punish yet and maintaining stage control. As you can see with this small explanation, there is a possibility to create a page for advantage state and same could be said for disadvantage state when there is lost stage control and the opposing player is trying to reclaim their stage positioning/ without leaving any predictable openings that wouldn't be clear to the opponent. I hope this can be seen as useful to newer players. (New Forum by: CutterX3)

My gut reaction is no, because we're not a strategy guide, we're an encyclopedia. However, I'd be willing to see it through if it were made in such a way that it could be explained in an encyclopedic way. Aidan, the Rurouni 10:36, January 28, 2021 (EST)
It makes sense to me to include pages that explain the advantage and disadvantage state because Smash Wiki has a page for neutral game and those terms are used in other pages. My question is why not have pages for advantage/disadvantage state but at the same time have a page for neutral game? -- Ethan (Discussion) 13:06, January 28, 2021 (EST)
I support this, I don't get the grievance about Smashwiki not being a strategy guide because the pages would just tell what advantage and disadvantage are, not explain how to play them optimally. Rdrfc (talk) 14:23, January 28, 2021 (EST)
