Icons: Combat Arena was a platform fighting game which released on Steam in July 2018. With $9.6 million in funding and a studio made up of experienced fighting game programmers, it aimed to become the big new fighting game of 2018. That...didn't happen. But there's an interesting story behind why it failed, and why it existed in the first place, so let's go back to 1999.
Super Smash Bros was released for the Nintendo 64 in 1999. Originally intended as a Japan-only, low-budget game, it was a surprise hit worldwide. As Nintendo moved on to their new console, the Gamecube, the developers behind SSB hurried to put together a sequel by 2001: Super Smash Bros Melee. Melee (as it's usually called) was an even bigger hit, selling a total of over 7 million copies; it's estimated that around 70% of people who owned a Gamecube also owned a copy of Melee.
Melee also developed a competitive scene, with pro players getting better and better as the years passed. Why? Well, Melee's rushed development meant that lots of things which would usually have been fixed pre-release stayed in the final game, making it possible to become much better at the game than the developers intended. One of the most important was wavedashing, in which the player dodges an attack while moving towards the ground, causing their character to slide while the game thinks they're standing still. Although developers were aware of this, they had no time to fix a glitch that (they thought) wasn't a big deal. Wavedashing ended up being one of the most important techniques in competitive play, and many similarly unintended moves were discovered in the years after Melee's release. As a result, Melee became a staple of video game tournaments, something Nintendo hadn't intended and didn't really want.
In 2008, Nintendo released Super Smash Bros Brawl, the third Smash game. Critics and audiences loved it, with even better reviews than either of the preceding games. Competitive players, however, were torn. Brawl offered a greater range of characters on a more powerful console, but removed almost all of the techniques that Melee had (unintentionally) had. In addition, Nintendo had added a new "feature" to prevent Brawl from turning into a competitive game: characters could [randomly trip at any time](https:/... keep reading on reddit ➡

It takes more than a good heart, a nice smile and being relatable to be able to govern well. There is this current trend where because everybody is very vocal about their political opinions (which is great!), people believe that certain icons would be adaquent civil servants. Individuals like Matthew McConaughey, Lebron James, The Rock are all people who individuals find easily relatable. News flash, being a civil servant is taxing, complex, and requires a wealth of knowledge about the political landscape. The time to learn about these roles and what duties it requires is not while you are in these positions, but prior to. I don't care if The Rock is nice to his Instagram followers and to kids in hospitals, I don't care if Lebron is an activist and outspoken on twitter, I do not care McConaughey can speak somewhat intelligently and in a charming manner. You cant have opinions about a singular topic that's important to you, and then think that makes you qualified to run for office. You think social rights are important? It is, however its also tied to infrastructure, to education, to tenant rights, to clean water access. You want to run for president but can't tell me what NATO is, or who our allies in the middle east are. There are individuals in this country who have given decades to the studies and the pursuit of bettering their communities through public service. There are people who have taken the time to study political processes acutely so they can understand where issues overlap. I am not saying these individuals should be forced to run for office, im saying, we the people, should understand these aren't popularity contests, and the best candidate is somebody with a track record that supports their agenda.
After the last post here blew up, I got a ton of feedback on features that should be added and bugs that should be fixed. I put a lot of work in the last few releases (this thing has been a ton of fun to work on, so it at least hasn't felt like work), and have added many of the top upvoted requests to the app.
Between that last post, r/Bestla, and my app's feature tracker, I've been able to address things in priority order. Though I've added all of the most-requested features, there's still plenty for me to work on, and I'm already working on the next update. There's too many individual features/fixes added to post here, so here's the latest release posts from r/Bestla if you want to check them out:

It's pretty awesome to see the support this app has received, and that last post sent the app store ranking (when typing in "tesla") from #85 to #13.
If you haven't yet had a chance to check the app
Here's the store links:
The app positions itself as one that is cross-platform (your database will always work, even if you switch devices), supports features that the vast majority of apps don't, and for those that do support some of these features, this is MUCH cheaper ($10 one-time or $1/mon, rather than competitors at $45 or $10/yr).
Here's an outline of some of the things the app does:
This should be all of the possible combinations to choose from, however, I may have missed one or two. Let me know if I made any mistakes with my calculations. Also, the design of the chart is from u/wahoos22 graph from swaps 2.
u/Dogstein17 pointed out that I made a mistake, you cannot do the 81+ x 25 pack with Prime Puskas and the other fodder packs.
