(TFT) Best starting Melee character revisited

Using the latest version of my Melee simulator I get results showing that *
077:ST13;DX11;MORNINGSTAR;NO_ARMOR;SMALL_SHIELD* is superior across the
board. Not surprising you say, since many people arrived at that from
playing in the old days. However, I realized that it could be good to think
about rivalries, since "average" best isn't necessarily a character who
dominates another individual.

So, using the statistics of 5000 fights per match-up of 108 possible
starting characters, I programmed a way to display the top rivals for each
character. According to my results, the best overall character has a top
rival of *065:ST11;DX13;SPEAR;NO_ARMOR;NO_SHIELD* (my simulator allows pole
weapon users to do charge attacks on the first round). It turns out that
spear-man can kill morningstar-man roughly 3/4 times. That means the top
(overall) character is fairly weak against his rival.

newest version of the simulator, check them out at the blog entry
