Eh, I only exclusively play battle. When I am not playing battle, im dueling. Now if you guys dont really care for battle, then I am not sure why you would even care about conversations of the melee speed on a battle server. From my perspective, changing the melee speed wont hurt the pop. The people who medium speed is supposed to help probably dont even know there are different melee speeds. and I doubt they would care if it was changed. The people who do care tend to like fastest. Now, not ALL people who care like fastest, but a majority do. Its the very reason I have avoided NA1 when possible.
Also if we really wanted to grow the competitive community, we should have people being introduced to the fastest speed asap, instead of having them practice and play on medium before getting hit by a wall of reality when they come to NAGF/NANWL LBs.
It would also speed up the rounds by taking out those hour long fights between two people who have vague ideas of how to block.
