DOA 6 looking good. I feel there's gonna be a way stronger emphasis on the neutral. Always a good thing to go with. I wonder how... Jun 11, 2018

      Man I'm really thinking, Tekken should've put Forest Law instead of Marshall Law in the tekken's after 3. Another thing they missed out on.

        They had more potential to work with in regards to Forest than Marshall. After Tekken 2, I felt there wasn't much Marshall needed to do besides go for "I'M THE GREATEST" which Paul's already doing and it would just be cheesy.

        Quite frankly it doesn't matter. The Laws are the token Bruce Lee clones. The point of the character is to give the players their Jeet Kune Do fix. It's not like Jacky whom's actually unique.

      Before I leave (For evangelism stuff), I figure I might attempt to make Rig's MU list on tournament scenario. Here's my opinion:

        This will be something else, I'll update the more I play DOA with Rig often. Plus this does not mean that I win against the 6's all the time. In fact, I get crushed by Gruff's Lisa, any of Hoodless's characters, KP & XCal's Bass, and many other examples. This is something I thought of considering a tournament scenario and looking into how can these characters stack up for ft2 or ft3 scenarios.

      As much as I love Tekken and grinding and stuff, the biggest thing that holds Tekken from truly elevating as a game is the lack of tutorial.

        If the player has played any other 3D fighter before or even a 2D fighter to a lesser extent, then yeah, they'd probably be able to pick up Tekken 7 reasonably easily. However, if the player has never played a FG before, or has never played one competitively, then a tutorial would make sense because they'd be lost beyond sample combos & 10-hit strings.

        On the other hand, you could make the argument that the players serious about leveling their game up to a competitive level would naturally seek out the Tekken 7 content online somewhere. What I'd like to see in a fighting game (such as a hypothetical DOA6) are character tutorials. I found them neat in BlazBlue as a good starting point.

        If someone wants to ft5 just to try to prove they're better then you're better. I don't waste time on ft5's for pride reasons. I'd rather run sets or play tournaments. Set's allow me and _____ to learn MU's and improve each other and tournament's where all that knowledge is executed at the highest level.

        It's all good. I just find it funny at this point. Winning FT5's to me is similar to getting high rank (Not to trash rank overall). It's not a bad thing but I feel if it's for the wrong reason, there's no point to doing it. Doing either to say they're better than ______ is one of those pointless reasons.

      After a year of thinking, I think I have a better DOA tier list now to consider. This is my tournament tier list:

        You could literally do 2P from Leon (+1) into 3P = now a 12F. The problem is the safety on tossing 2P since the low is i14, but then his 6PP is also i14 so difference on startup is no different. It's getting rid of old habits from players using certain moves all the time that causes Leon to make himself feel bad. I still have habits with 6PP myself due to 5U moments.
        May 20, 2018
      3. DestructionBomb
        DestructionBomb
        I find Leon's 6PP to be terrific if it lands on stun rather than on block. 3PP is a negative GB, but it's safe and it jails I believe. Leon definitely isn't the best but I find it extremely hard to believe he'll be at the bottom, I was watching Flack play him in a JPN tournament and doing serious damage on Terurock and that Lisa player. I think it really depends here.

        Ayane was my 1st main. Until I figured out how horrid I was with her. Kokoro was another person I considered to be a main. Idk why but I hopped off her. Maybe cause I did so much 2h+k's. I might experiment again. See how creative I can get with them both. @Force_of_Nature @Bacaww

        For example: Take Aris recent tekken tier list with Heihachi at B and the reason being "Why play Hei when DJ does better and your skillset would benefit more with him." I can see that with DOA at times.

        I get everyone's point of view. And fan service is in every game indeed. I feel that way in regards to this because when I look at the aspect of DOA, besides the fighting, a big aspect is that fan service. It's one thing for a game to have fan service and that's it. It's another to have a spin-off and in addition perpetuate this image where we have many ryona videos and such compared to other fighters.

        I think the only game where Ryona's at a high level for it is in like Rumble Roses and well that game had it's brief run. This isn't me bashing the game. It's a fun game and I like the mechanics (Something I wish were improved but that's every fighter). However, one negative aspect I wish never came up was that fan service. I look at DOAX as a joke that should've never been made to begin with cause...

        Now instead of there being a DOA6 that I can be hyped for (It's still coming. I'm faithful to that), there's all this DOAX crap and all this Misaki or Luna or whoever that other chick is that I can absolutely care less for. Plus the aspect where I saw in a forum where there were discussions about the female to male stuff I think adds to that reason I feel this kind of way.

        Sonic Fox wasn't the type to explain the game pretty deep for one to really understand it (at the time, now might be different since Fox knows meta talk now). Back when Sonic Fox slept over my house at Defend The North for MKX with Kwiggles, he was trying to show Duane on how to play MKX and his explanation was more towards on how Fox feels when he played the game rather than explaining meta etc.

        Soy is from Korea. Probably the only consistent DOA player in Korea when it comes to DOA and he still plays it almost all the time. If it came down to it, Soy would of been perfect to help explain it to him. Saint should of approached people years back if that's the case since Soy has been in almost every NEC. Now it might be difficult if there's even interest for Soy to even travel to NEC this year due to money.

But having competed, and hearing from most cats regarding PC gaming, I've developed second thoughts. Playing a few buds at FR on PC was the final blow.

    Rig
    Semi-retired DOA player. Kinda just waiting for DOA 6 at this point.

    PSN: Conditioner15

    XBOX Live: tjmb1018

    DOA Main: Rig (waiting for DOA 6 or anything)

    Virtua Fighter Main: Jacky/Sarah
    [​IMG]


    1st DOA game played: DOA 2 demo from the Sega Dreamcast.
    1st DOA game owned: DOA 3

    What did I like about DOA: I did like the triangle philosophy of strikes > throws, throws > holds, & holds > strikes. I also liked the defense. I don't think many fighters have the level of defense DOA had.

    Best DOA: DOA 3 easy.

    [​IMG]

    How did I get to my main: I used to main Ayane (When I played core fighters. In 3 it was Zack & Bayman for a unique tag throw that I loved). And she was good as she was able to control the pace of a game, which I love in a character gameplay-wise. However, I took some time off for school. When I got back, my Ayane stunk and I felt "Well I need a new main". I went on and on and experimented every character I could until yet again I took a break for school. Finally when I returned, I felt that I should choose Rig for some reason and when I played him for real it was love at first sight. Great offense with moves that I can do and can also confuse oppositions, while having more moves for me to learn. Now I find that Rig can fit any style I want, whether I want to play aggressive or laid back. I stopped playing DOA for my own reasons and I probably won't return and compete until DOA 6. When DOA 6 comes out, Rig will be ready.

    [​IMG]


    How did I get to my Tekken main: I used to main Law. And in a way I still prioritize Law. However, when I played tekken 4, I dove into Hwoarang's story mode and I felt that he was a great character. I played tekken since 3 and I dove into many characters. I felt that Hwoarang was truly unique and he fit my style. Fast forward to tekken 5 and I still liked him. I added more characters to my roster from Hwoarang, Law, Paul & Jin with Bryan, Raven (Whom I miss :( ), Feng Wei, Baek, Steve, Yoshimitsu, & Nina. However, I retired from Tekken in favor of shooters and sports games. I got huge into 2k, WWE, Call of Duty, Gears of War, & Halo so I stopped playing games like Tekken. However, recently, I returned from retirement and like always Hwoarang, & Law's by my side. As of now, Law is kinda my BS character that I still use in some crucial games. But I'm coming up with a main 5 that I'll look to prioritize for tournaments. With Hwoarang leading the way, I'm fired up with tekken to be the best I can be. I'm also adding new characters along the way as Tekken has different styles so I'm trying to get acquainted with all styles.

    [​IMG]


    How I got my Pokken Main:
    As of late, I got Pokken just recently. I like Pikachu a lot since he plays like one of my pockets in Heihachi. I look forward to growing in this game with Pikachu as the captain of my team.
