  • Let's see what is the main Fighting Game line-up: SFV:A, T7, SC VI, DBFZ, DOA 6, & now MK 11. Man 2019 for tourneys are going to be stacked.
    Kinda salty about a Bear winning. Hwoarang, Bryan, Steve, Kazuya, Heihachi, and such can't perform on the big stage but a bear can? Still a great world tour overall but the end. :'(

    Rangchu is the only bear player who places high and does it consistently with a low, low-mid tier character, so he earned it. Some players who mained high execution characters switched because it was quite hard playing them and that might've limited them, like how jdcr rarely plays Heihachi anymore, or how Speedkicks tried to use Kazumi instead of Hwoarang, also, let us not forget how many of them used Jack and Drag.

    I get that Rangchu really grinded and I'm happy about him. They did him dirty w/ the celebration too. But maybe cause I'm just a fan of Hwo, Steve, & others and I want to see them win that it doesn't give me happy vibes that a bear wins but Hwoarang, Steve, & such can't. I'm happy a Drag & Jack didn't win though. Season 2 did justice with that.

    Which is why the # of Drags dropped to only people who truly liked him. But even by that Hwoarang, Steve and others were outperformed by a Bear showing that high execution characters as those still don't got enough to win when it counts.
    Marduk, Armor King & Julia!!! Not bad picks. Would've went Bruce instead of Marduk but I'm cool w/ it. And Negan looks meh. He'll bring players in but not the most intriguing. He looks good graphically though.
    Unpopular opinion: I probably would say the biggest thing a new player should learn 1st in any 3d fighter is movement.

    But my awful movement. I had no idea how to SS, so everyone SS'd me, I knew nothing of backdashing so people kept good pressure on me. Once I learned it and learned to utilize environment I finally learned DOA, fundamentally at least and it made me appreciate the game more and the character I use.

    Lastly, this may be a bad example because there was no training and all but in SC VI's beta, I think the biggest thing that took me a long way was movement. Cause at that time, I knew absolutely nothing about the characters at all (haven't played since SC II) but knowing how the game moved, I utilized it to my advantage and w/ that it carried over to the real game.

    I know it's long but I think the biggest fundamental everyone should learn 1st is movement. Then Character & tools. Then MU's.
    I never knew a Character based rank is making DOA all the way like Tekken. Shii Soul Calibur is just like tekken too. And since I wanted a ft2 format, Street Fighter is just like tekken too.

    @T..J. Bernard you don't have to explain yourself tho, if you feel like character rankings is a good idea then just stand by it, you don't have to justify it for people who disagree xD I personally dont think it's like Tekken, alot of games have character ranking, tekken isn't the first or only. Plus DOA5 basically has it with the character points system to a degree

    Hol' up... You mean fighting games have similarities?... Shit... Brb need to go work on a bomb shelter.

    Because your mind was Blown ? ;)
    I think DOA would benefit highly with a Character based rank instead of overall rank. With that, should I really want to grind someone not Rig or Jann, I could do so and really grind from the beginning.

    Idk about the name thing since there's a likelihood of being matched up against boosters and rage quitters and we wouldn't know who they were and it would be hard to avoid them, that and there's player(s) I personally don't want to play with so I would prefer to know who I'm fighting, at least in casual or quick match if they have that xD

    What is this? Tekken?
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    Nope. Just suggestions for rank mode. SC has character rank also. + SC rewards streaks as well. SF I think goes by Ft2 format too.
    I wonder if DOA 6 will be more into the quick launching scenario or still implementing the stun game to it's fullest. I think that will definitely impact how I look at the characters as a whole and who benefits from what.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    However, with Jann I see more of the stun launch scenario. Especially w/ more moves getting into dragon stance. From what I watch I think it'll vary.

    Yeah, the characters will retain their preferred playstyles. It's just a case of adapting to the change in mechanics. Fatal Rushes during stun appear to be the most notably change to me. Fatal Stuns will be deadly once people learn how to manipulate them.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    The fatal stuns/rush look crazy. And so far I think I've seen people use especially when they know a player got 0 bars. I hope there's some gameplay at NEC that'll show more in regards to that. It'll help so much with looking at DOA 6's metta.
    Wondering if I should start a character of the day series again when DOA 6 comes out and run it with SC & Tekken or do each separate at given months? Not working with any DLC or pre-order characters but just the base roster.

    It has been decided: December: Tekken, January: Soul Calibur, & should I have it by February: Dead or Alive!
    After a while of SC struggle, I think I found my temporarily main in Seong Mi-Na. Unless I do better with someone else & until Hwang comes through. 1st female main since Sarah in VF and possibly 1st non-rushdown character main (Might be wrong). Gonna be fun.
    From how I see things, Tekken favors fundamentals and great use of tools. DOA favors good use of stun & utilizing the system to your favor. What does Soul Calibur favor? Range, Footsies, & great ring out pressure?
    Force_of_Nature

    Footsies, space control, frame traps. And yomi & reads like any other FG.

    Soul Calibur imo favors both a mix of Tekken and DOA fundamentals, it plays like a merge between those two games which I like
    That Christie trailer is false advertisement on her getting beat up. Once the game comes out it’ll be the total opposite.

    maybe it's a reflection of her tier placement in doa6, and maybe she's back to being mid tier like she was in her debut game

    I kid, im sure she'll still be a pain in the butt, although it is weird how the majority of her trailer is her getting beat up

    Hey, Christie got her ass kicked in DOA5's story too haha =P. But I can't wait for #PPPPP next February >:)! Whether she'll be "S-Tier" again or not, I'm sure she'll at least'll be Rage Tier.
    SC Twitter: 3 days til your favorite warriors return. :D Me: Where? I didn’t see Yun Seong or Hwang on the roster. :(

    I'm somewhat surprised that neither of them made a return(dlc is a thing though, let us not forget, one of them might be playable in the future), which makes me a bit sad too since Yun is my second favourite character in SC games. At least Maxi made it in.
    So in the end I get no Yun Seong or even Hwang. But I get a character I can't even use online or in tournament play???

    What kind of sense does that make? Inferno could've easily been a boss character, while adding Yun Seong or Hwang or even Lizardman???

    Welcome to $andai namco. "Pwease buy our game or it will be the last 0w0". I am happy that I bought hitman instead. Sick of all their business decisions, paid characters, left out characters and implementations of 2D and esports rng mechanics
    Comparing Hitomi to Honoka, Hitomi feels a bit better but still aspects of struggle. However, she's more fun and enjoyable for sure.
