Big E made an announcement that could revolutionize our tournament scene for Last Round, but as one could expect, he's just not going to sit back and do all the work... as if he hasn't done enough for this community to begin with.
Winter Brawl... is going to be our big opener for Last Round, and after everyone was disappointed about EVO not bringing in DOA, Big E made the announcement that he will do a side tournament for DOA. He wants numbers, he wants commitment and he wants to beat other games out on the main line-up. Big E is our number one connection in the fighting tournament world other than Team NINJA itself, and he has more news and more...
We might not be on the main stage, but we will be at EVO. Big E, one of our biggest supporters outside of Team NINJA and one of the most prolific Tournament Organizers in the country, is working to put on a "side tournament" at EVO. I use quotes because this man isn't a side tournament kind of guy. This is all extremely early but there is already aggressive movement to make this an impactful event at EVO. Lines are open and parts are moving to make this successful. From Big E himself on one of the Facebook groups:
It seems like there is this big outburst as to why the game isn't at EVO and people have a lot fingers they are pointing in all sorts of directions and I'm not getting it with all of the moaning and groaning and surprise from the community. Are you really that surprised?
Some people donate their time, some people donate their money, and some donate both to this community and those people are excluded from this, but there are seriously people out their complaining that haven't even showed up to one tournament/event. And to them I ask, what gives you the right to even be a part of the conversation?
The reason DOA isn't at EVO is because this community is completely divided and not enough people are working within the community itself....
There are several massive events on the horizon for our community and a lot of you have had some pretty legitimate questions come up regarding things. More of you have had some completely insane questions, so if you fall into that particular camp, pass right on by. For the rest of you, we've been able to work out something I'm going to avoid calling an interview for a variety of reasons. That non-interview will be with Team NINJA directly.
We could have just whipped up a quick Q&A and posted it as an article, but we wanted to try something a little different. Those of you who've been around for a long enough time may have seen something similar in the past, but this is a different situation we're working with in 2015. We're going to open...
This video is meant to shed some light on what Kokoro is capable of in ver. 1.09. It goes over B&B setups, Critical Burst setups, Power launcher combos (indoors and outdoors), as well as environmental combos. All the combos displayed in the video CANNOT be stagger escaped, which means that your opponent is put in a situation where he is forced to guess and risk a hold.
I hope you find this video both informative and entertaining. ^^
