Yesterday, I receive a PM from someone on another forum (I'm not going to drop usernames or forum names) asking about the project after I wanted to restart it. I told him what I was dropping from the original and what I wanted to add. However, there was one thing I wanted to drop that suddenly became a deal breaker and lead to a going nowhere negotiation. The thing in question was a striker that involved the Penguin. In the original release, Penguin would slowly come onto the field and then launch a projectile attack that did minimal damage. I saw it as a high risk (Leaves Joker wide open to being attacked, plus Penguin was so slow to appear and attack it would be rendered useless), low reward (damage equal to that of a basic attack) type of move so it was more worth dropping than keeping. While discussing why I wanted to drop it, I showed my lack of memory regarding Joker/Penguin team-ups which along with my stance on keeping it lead to a war that made me look like the bad guy.
I explained myself, holding my stance, and got told I was harping. I wouldn't back down, and the continuous arguing I decided to drop Joker altogether and give it to him since he apparently had a better plan than I did. My only other options for trying to expand Joker's sprites are a thread at MFG that has little activity or spending money I don't have to get the sprites done.
I really wanted to give the people a modern-ish Joker with sprites that resembled his classic TAS appearance, but I guess it won't happen under me. So now, the only Jokers available are crap-tier or meh-tier. Have fun with those while I wait on sprites for my Classic Moon WIP.
