I personally love it. I was skeptical at first, especially since I came from the smash community (who have a love or hate cmpetitive item set as well,) but after playing a few IR fights, I consider it not game breaking enought to be forgotten (for the same reasons as alpha above, mostly). I'd love this to be a side format, since IMO Infared is the best format behind Wi-Fi(you gotta admit being the only format where your opponent doesn't know your team is a plus.) I'm actually doing a tournament this saturday to test out how good it is.
so: Infared side metagame, anyone?
