imagine you're in a game and there's a missile spawn and an HL spawn right in front of you. you can only pick up one of the two. which do you pick?

try not to overthink this - don't think too much about what specific situation you might be in. imagine you have to make a snap decision and ignore everything but your gut instinct.

based on a conversation i had with Cac today

I chose the homing launchers because I think it's a bit better at close and mid range, and that's where I'm least comfortable at fighting people. I play against Falco alot, and it seems like a pretty good weapon against him

Missiles = 99% free kill.
However HL = multiple "not so free, but easy enough" kills.

I think that missiles is the best way to go, but if I were to grab HL, I would only do it as Falco, Fox, and maybe Krystal. I say this because they can use their speed to make it easier to score kills with the homing launcher, maximizing it's potential.

dang, it's tied... was hoping this would be more clear-cut! loving your answers though guys, seems like missiles are considered all but omnipotent by most people... i haven't actually voted yet, still can't decide

If there's one thing I do well, it's gather data. I'll be back in a few hours.

i'm here to be the real mvp and break the tie

I voted HL myself because I'm terrible with missiles. Alternatively depending on the terrain HL's are pretty easy to dodge with most characters (I could never do it with Krystal the 5 times I played her ever) but no locks are pretty tough to deal with. At least you can shoot down or camp out missiles (sometimes)

the current stats in the tourney results thread say otherwise, BUT the data there is all for tourneys prior to 2011 and a lot of stuff has changed since then. my Official(tm) guess is that the ratio of ML kills to HL kills goes up, but remains below 1 as you start taking more recent tourneys into account

after a bunch of games, i have officially come out in favour of missiles given how many tight situations i've gotten out of with their aid compared to the same for the HL, so we're tied again bounce
