Speed usually doesn’t matter because it gets equalized
Lowkey I was about to make a vs match and I almost instinctively speed equalized despite one character being 4.2% light speed and the other being 5% light speedEspecially if they have the same speed (I've seen it before for some reason)
I've done a crap ton of matches with characters with really low speed and some with really high speedThat's sadly true.
While usually equalizing speed makes a match fair or possible, it gets to ludicrous degrees. I wish there was some way to keep a certain speed advantage, or at least consider the character's mindset or to give more consideration than just "BLITZ".
Not a thing in VSBW, but I've seen plenty of debates that even against impossible speed advantages, people could still argue interesting matches.
