Greetings FSD'ers.

This is a heads up that I'll be running a Christie stream on August 2nd @ 8PM EST at this location: The stream session will serve as opportunity to break down this complex character with the intent of being able to gain a better understanding of how she functions. People looking into potentially taking up the character will likely gain the most benefit from the session, though those interested in learning how to deal with this most fearsome character may gain some insights too.

Some topics that are being looked at:

- Safe and semi-safe strings & strikes
- CH & NH Launchers
- Throw Game
- Wall Game
- Stun manipulation including unholdable stuns
- Frame traps

What's up guys. Some of you may know me already, but for those who don't.. WASSUP. Anyway, I decided to make this beginner tutorial just to kind of bring Hayate back to life a little bit. I know that my man @Allan Paris already touched on these things a few years ago, but I decided to bring out a more updated verison. PLEASE be sure to include any notes in here that will be added for future tutorials. This is just the beginner video, so there isn't too many crazy things here. Also, shoutout to my fellow Hayate players. @TakedaZX @Zeo @Shade -Rojikku.

Many of the Dead or Alive players in attendance are reporting the great atmosphere of Evolution and great times they had with the community and their friends at the event:

Hey guys, Virtua Kazama here.

As you guys may know, EVO 2015 is just a couple days away. For the DOA community, of course DOA5 Last Round will be there as a side-tournament and as part of the Battle Royal 2015 series. More people are expected to enter after the success of last year's side tournament, thanks to Team NINJA's support.

To celebrate the occasion, I have conducted a 5-Part blog of the history of EVO Championship series from B3: Battle by the Bay, to EVO 2015. The blogs will be on

Part 1: B3: Battle by the Bay-EVO 2002 (Now Available)
Part 2:...
