    Update: Check this OP if you want in depth explanation to every damn little mechanic with pictures! MOVING pictures! Back in my day, we had to look through magic lanterns.

    VF players go to http://virtuafighter.com/, the mecca of VF.

    HEY YOU! YES, YOU! Tired of playing the same games? Tired of whining and waiting for that dream game called DOA5? Tired of the same 15~ cast? Well, I got the cure for that remedy and it's called...

    What is this thread about?
    This thread will facilitate anything related to Tekken, be it pure crunch and numbers to fluff and cosmetics. With Tag 2 coming out, you really might want to get in with the cool kids and have fun punching a fucking bear in the face or shooting lazer beams through killer robots and giant fire breathing demons from outer space or grandpas who can survive giant explosions or a wrestler wearing a jaguar mask that throws you around like a hula hoop.

    Whoa, what the fu-
    TEKKEN!

    Why should I care about this thread?
    Hey, let's face it. Until doa5 comes out, you might want to keep yourself busy and play in a community where there are plenty of players.

    But Tekken is so bori-
    Okay, stop bitching. I bet you haven't played the game for more than 10 minutes.

    What makes Tekken special?
    If you're into 3D fighters and you liked SCII, then there is a good chance of you liking Tekken. If you like doa3's movement system, you'll also like moving around in Tekken. Tekken has one of the best movement systems in 3D fighting games and if you can incorporate the skills like the dash cancelling and korean backdashing, you're can fly like butterfly and sting like a bee. High level Tekken play can be lightning fast and spacing is one of the most important things in Tekken. If you're a spacing guy like me, you'll love this.

    Korean TV shows like Tekken Crash have some good example of high level play from top Korean players.

    I'm a little overwhelmed here.
    It's understandable if you are since there are so many fucking characters (40+) and it's not like VF where you can look em all up in one day. It might feel like taking another college course, but that's why there are so many places where you can get that useful info regarding characters online.

    Can't I just have fun?
    Sure, for example, If you like that beat em up style of combat, you could try out the Tekken 6 scenario campagin and get free shit and lots of money so you can customize Marshall Law to look like Jann Lee or whatever you'd like to do with customization. You can also play scenario campaign in co-op too with your own character. Maybe your co-op partner could be Nina dressed up as Christie.

    Since Tekken 6 online isn't good enough to facilitate online tournament play as of now, you can have fun there just throwing shit around and see what works. Good luck with the lag though. Do not accept matches which are below 4 in signal.

    Can you make a topic about VF5: Final Showdown?

    I'd prefer that as an alternative.

    The "3D Guys" at my spot ONLY play Tekken, so I'm sure this info will come in handy.

    I still dig it, but am more interested in TTT2

    Dam I haven't touched Tekken 6 in a long time. I used to love playing that game for hours on end, no lie. Then DOA stole my heart when I finally discovered her, and alas I cheated on my former lover of fighters. Lol. Nah I kid, I still love Tekken. I just need my own copy now. I remember playing Tekken 3 back in the day with my stepdad, ah good times. :)

    Btw, I DO have a question to start off with. Who is your main Uncle? And why? :cool:

    First off, Lol, good delivery.

    I used to play a bit of Tekken 4. I used Yoshimitsu and his moveset totally changed in 6.

    Hey hey hey, I'm back. Check out this baller looking OP by those guys at neogaf. I'll put it in the OP.

    You whack ass kids who like VF can go to Virtua Fighter Dot Com.

    Seriously, VF series needs a massive visual and auditory overhaul. Some of those animations and sounds are from like VF1. Seriously, change your pants, old man.

    Glad to see someone wants to be in the cool kids club.

    Heihachi. He's upper mid tier. Has the best punisher (1, 1, 2) in the game along with best launcher (Electric). Juggle game is subpar and he's pretty slow, but solid as hell and db+2 is an awesome poke. He's hella fun to play. Has a funny gimmick with his counter where he takes 50 damage on anything, even a normal jab. Has the worst hair.

    Well, you'll find yourself shooting yourself less in the foot with Tag2 yoshi since he's not as shit as the T6 one.

    Dragunov is the only character in Tekken I'll touch.

    Of course if you know anything about me, it's pretty stupid obvious why.

    I have more vids of this dude, QDOGG coming up soon from his time at UGS (shameless plug) and I think he would beg to differ with that statement:

    ^^^ I didn't say he's shit tier, he's just low tier. The thing with characters in Tekken is that you can use any character in the game and win tournaments with em. Not many people know about Roger's poking game and juggles (average of 90 damage).

    It's just that it's more difficult mastering those characters, really.

    Also, the things yoshi can do from back turned or back turned yoga stance...man, that shit is just crazy.

    Hmm, YOU DON'T SAY.

    Well, Dragunov is a national Korean hero while Bayman is a washed muscle bound dry cleaner.

    If you need help with Drag, Aris knows Drag inside out. He's even better Tag2.

    Actually I agree with Kichener. I was shooting myself in the foot quite a lot because I was doing the sidespins quite often by accident.

    Do you mean b+3+4? Well, I've seen some pretty awesome players use that on occasions and it excited the crowd.


    I'll be adding some links to videos in the OP.

    Lol worst hair, I like that. That's cool though. Back in the day my main used to be KIng. I used to love pulling off a successful Frankensteiner (i think that's what it's called). Then after Tekken 5 came around I switched over to Kazuya and he's been my guy ever since. I guess I just found a better play style with him. What's the difference between his and Heihachi's launcher (Electric)? I've also wondered how the hell people can pull it off multiple times in quick succession as a juggle. I can never get more than 2 lol.

    None whatsoever. All EWGFs have the same property, be it DJ, Kaz or Hei. There are other things like DEWGF (Dash electric) DDEWGF and other things you can use as mix up and adding to your strategy. and keeping up the pressure, or just plain wave dashing to add more pressure.

    Here is a tutorial that covers all the different types of electrics there are out there and it's pretty short.

    Honestly, this is something you have to practice a lot to make perfect. People just practice this one move for week or years . It ain't easy, but once you get it right, you can kiss that izuna goodbye because you'll be playing one of the best characters with the best launcher.

    I call bullshit.

    Let's say I had even in the slightest interest in Tekken because of Zafina (which is true) and I wanted to main her. Everywhere I go, folks say she's not tournament-viable, which is to say she's bottom-tier, aka virtually impossible to win legit tourneys with.

    Can you honestly tell me that again with a straight face? Didn't think so.

    You're bound to go against people who don't know shit about Zafina because no one played them at their local scene or whatever.

    So yeah, you probably can, it's just that no one really wants to put the effort into her because she's too gimmicky.

    Remember that Orwell novel where the pigs were like "All animals are equal but some are more equal than others"? Well, Zafina falls into the category 1 where she is equal, but not as equal as mishimas, but she's still equal. I haven't seen people win tournaments with her, but I've seen em get into top 8, so that's something.

    While Tekken is definitely a fun fighter I feel that VF would be a better route for a DOA player, although good luck getting anyone here to play you, lol.
