        Yes. It's still the best RPG ever made, by far.

        Honestly, it'd be much more fruitful to ask over at /r/Morrowind. Lots of people there who love talking about this masterpiece and they may be able to suggest mods and improvements to help ease into it. New players ask for suggestions there all the time.

        Morrowind is not like all the "baby's first RPG" games that we have nowadays. It plays off of more traditional and stat-based mechanics and doesn't hold your hand.

        What really sets Morrowind apart the most I think though is how incredibly deep the lore and backstory of the game and world is. There's nothing like it in anything that has come out since then.

        Morrowind was the last true Elder Scrolls game. Afterwards, the series was massively changed and went way off course to pander to the mindless, casual masses and sadly became shit.

      Just asking, how often do people actually use crouching block to avoid highs and how often to people actually break neutral throws?
      1. Rojikku
        Rojikku
        Neutral throws are broken quite often, actually. And ducking highs on block is used often as well. Especially strings like Ayane's 66kk4

        i try to duck highs and much as possible, no sense in taking block pressure that you can avoid by crouching. as for neutral throw breaks, that's one of those things i'll go for if i know that my opponent knows that neutral throw punish is the only punish they can get, even so i still miss it time to time

        Neutral throw breaks are common since when a person sees that they're getting grabbed the first instinct is to try to break it even if it's not a neural throw.

        Ducking highs I try to do if i know that's what gonna happen, or else you get blown up like if you try to 2P a mid that's faster

      I now fear using Hayabusa's handstand kick. I've been able to punish that move on block every time and I fear it will happen to me.

        I just throw punish all the follow ups, except for the P follow up where I just mid punch hold instead. That move is really slow that I can react to it. Besides, the WR4K is not delayable.

      I feel that Hayate's 214K should launch the opponent on stun threshold level 2/3 like Raidou's.

        Nah, that would be a little too much. The move being +2, and more from tip range is already good enough. It would be sick, but being able to either launch/be + frames at threshold would be crazy.

        Neither have much personality, but Ein has some charm. Hayate is a fun bundle of incompetence whose sisters worship him in spite of that. He's not particularly compassionate, competent, skilled, insightful or anything, but some characters act like he's God's gift to the world, and that gets annoying.

        Like, is not hard to make Hayate cool, it just seems that TN is trying as hard as they can to not make this happen. Just put a game plotline where he saves the day or do something important instead of just destroying vehicles.

        Neither Hayate or Ein have any personality and are both pretty generic. Brute pretty much stated why Hayate isn't really appealing, and Ein is kinda just there...

      Like how Ein returned even though Hitomi exists, Bankotsubo should return even when Nyotengu exists.

        It would be pretty cool, but unfortunately Tengu was by far the least popular character (especially in DOA4) and it honestly would not be worth Team Ninja's time to resurrect him to the roster.

        Ninja Gaiden 4 would be a really good opportunity for Bankotsubo to be resurrected and return in a big way to set the stage for DOA6. But it all really rides on what actual role Nyotengu herself plays in the Tengu realm. The info we have on her right now is extremely vague.

        Camel is right. It was an interesting idea, but an absolutely awful one. It also exists in DOAX1 and is much better there (tap A for a weak hit and slam it for a strong one), though I still prefer playing that game with standard controls as well.

        And I believe your comment about the 360 is correct too. I recall reading somewhere that the 360 controller doesn't have analog support.

        Tried out the analog command. I have to agree it was pretty dumb. I can't even do a single jab or punish throw at all, no matter how light I try to tap the button as possible, it's always on max pressure. The dumbest thing is probably the Izuna drop command. Max pressure T > Max pressure T > max pressure T.

      Is it common for the opponent to suddenly be behind Momiji whenever she does 236P or 66PP at the wall?
      1. TheDragonAwakens
        TheDragonAwakens
        There are several instances where I pinned my opponent to the wall and then launch them with 236P or 66PP, but for some reason, after the opponent is launched, both characters switch sides and the directional inputs change, causing me to drop my combos, and I end up having my back at the wall instead, it's pretty annoying.

        Well he may not have been the main of the franchise but he was definitely the central character in DOA2. It was all about his return to power as a ninja and regaining his memory while discovering what Project Epsilon.

        I hear Ryu whooped his ass still though. Can mess with a half dragon.

        Ein had the coolest hold animations? Come on. Clearly you've never seen Bankotsubo land a low kick hold.

        And the original Xbox controller S actually had a pretty good dpad. The analog sticks are good too, but you shouldn't use analog sticks for a fighting game.

        @Forlorn Penguin Maybe I should have phrased that differently. Ein has the most amount of cool hold animations (low kick hold, low punch hold, high punch hold, and mid punch hold)
        Tengu has two cool ones (Low kick hold and punch/kick in air hold)
        Busa has cool Izuna holds but the 7 year old me sees them all as one

        I find myself better at using the keyboard than the controller lol.

      Noticed that after 66K or 6P+K4, the Ongyoin PP follow up does not always cause the opponent to be back turned. Is there a reason for this?

        To expand on That, this is a good reason to work on your mixups and decide on some good 50/50 set ups.

        Master was one of the first to use BT cancel into 4K. Depending on how much advantage it gives on full slow escape you should work on those.

        If the damage is low enough you could either 4k or 6kk. 33P may be too slow but I'm going on tonight so I'll be in the lab working on it.

        If it doesn't give the limbo stun he only gets +15. What's more is only jab/low jab and bt. 4p hit... technically you could hit him with BT P+K but it's less advantage and the same start up.

        If you don't get the limbo be ready for anything.

        Well Leon isn't the strongest man in the world, that's just something his wife said before she died and he tries to live up to that claim to honor her. So ryu is the strongest, although I wouldn't go as far as to call him a demi god

        he is not a demi-god, but he isn't 100% human either. The hayabusa lineage comes from a lineage of fiend-human hybrids that rebelled against the fiends and sided with the dragon gods, and thus they received as a gift the dragon sword, made with the bones of dragon gods. The most powerful 100% human character, is possibly Kasumi, and i'm not even joking here.
