Talk:Tournament rulesets (DSB)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

I don't know much about official tournament terminology, but I'm not sure DSB is a logical acronym for the japanese n64 game. Although in english the second and third game are just the first games name with a suffix added, in japan the first game had a unique prefix not in those games titles, namely "Nintendo All-Star". Shouldn't the acronym therefore be NASDSB, NADSB, ASDSB, or something incorporating the prefix in some way? FirstaLasto 12:49, 10 May 2014 (EDT)

Why a unique page for DSB only?[edit]

Why is there a distinct tournament legal page for only the first Japanese Smash Bros. game? Arguably there either ought be pages for Japanese SSBM/SSBB/etc. as well, or this page should be merged into Tournament legal (SSB). Just wondering why this particular page and no others. Is it the case that only the first game in the series happens to have different legal stages/some other legality difference between Japanese and non-Japanese rulesets, and other games do not?

I oppose a merge. Merging these 2 pages would be very messy, and besides that, they are 2 different rulesets, and thus should have 2 different pages. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:51, 11 December 2015 (EST)

Why is this particular region and game the only separate page then? What's so special about Japan+Smash 64 that it deserves its own page and not, say, Japan+Brawl or Europe+Melee? I'm not saying merging is necessarily the right move, just wondering why the uniqueness. Zowayix (talk) 22:53, 11 December 2015 (EST)
Oppose I think they should stay because DSB's rules are different. If he just decide to change it, we might as well as merge the tier lists as well. Grayblood (talk) 14:55, 12 December 2015 (EST)
Oppose a merge, support creating pages for the other Japanese rulesets. They're unique enough (at least in Brawl and Smash 4) to warrant separate entries IMO. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:27, 12 December 2015 (EST)

How different are other games' Japanese rulesets from NA/European ones? If this is the only one with significant differences (which was my impression), it's fine for it to remain on its own and not make pages for the other games. Miles (talk) 15:42, 12 December 2015 (EST)

While not detailed, they're apparently different enough for us to have separate pages on Japanese, European, and Brazilian tier lists... Zowayix (talk) 00:42, 13 December 2015 (EST)
That's irrelevant though, as their tier lists have nothing to do with their rulesets. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:48, 13 December 2015 (EST)
On the contrary, the regional tier list pages specifically state that the reason for deviating from the 'regular' tier list is because of the different rulesets, leading to a different metagame. Zowayix (talk) 23:47, 13 December 2015 (EST)
