I am for the idea of no counterpick stages.
It seems obvious to not include smash meter or stage morph, but they will make fun side brackets.
Hazards on or not for some of the stages are yet to be seen, honestly most stage related stuff will have to wait till we get to release date.
If we can turn rage off, lets do it.
Also, pudge, its hard defining what makes a stage legal or not. Smash stages tends to be Jank, but the less jank, the more competitive the stage is. There are never going to be a set of rules which define jank, jank is inherently janky. But stage hazards off could make 25+ stages viable. Who the fuck knows until we play the god damn thing. So lets stick with a few favourites, guaranteed to be less janky, until we can see the full picture. (maybe like 1 or 2 months in).
So maybe like:
BF, FD, SV, FoD/Yoshi's and PS2
