Zakkurye has hosted his first Royal Summit FT10 series debuting the event for Dead or Alive 5: Last Round with XcaliburBladeZ & MCD as the two featured competitors. BladeZ has touted a vicious persona lately through social media calling players out and is truly playing the part of being a cocky prize fighter. MCD wanted to prove that he had the best Jann Lee but perhaps now is not the time as BladeZ answered the call and dominated most of this set.

If you think you are good enough to be featured in this FT10 Royal Summit series please contact Zakkurye for a chance to compete. There were a lot of spectators for the debut and the event was complemented with great commentary.

Episode 2 was released last week and features more matches in...

While heavies have largely been nerfed for Dead or Alive 6 they still encapsulate most of the elements that make DOA great to begin with. Their incredible animation & move variety, staggering throw damage, gameplay options and tactics make them must watch characters at tournaments - especially since most DOA players prioritize speed-based characters into their respective game. A new member at FSD by the name of @cotrienla has shared his Bass Wall Game discoveries in a comprehensive guide that will give you an idea of how much Bass can do to his foes on various walls in the game.

New members of FSD are encouraged to report their unique character findings in the character forums. We provide a sub-forum for every official character in Dead or Alive 6 so please continue sharing and studying from the safety and convenience of your...

Verison 1.22 is expected to be the last update for Dead or Alive 6 and with it came a few inevitable send-off DLCs and a couple bug fixes before hanging up the vanilla version of the game. Thankfully 1.22 fixed Tamaki's 4 H+K to now be holdable and Tamaki's ban has been removed from Free Step Dodge's DOA Tournament Suggested Rulings. Please show your support for FSD and Tamaki by purchasing our beautiful new shirt from the FSD shop.

Tamaki was actually incarcerated (and not for public intoxication surprisingly) with two separate charges of bans that would have prevented her from entering at Final Round 2020 & April Annihilation. These counts are: The Two Week Character Release Limit and Unholdable...

FSD Adds Steam Support & Replay Functionality

Matt Ponton has really gone out of his way to express why the PC version of Dead or Alive 6 is the dominant version and the way to play this game. He shows his dedication by not only trucking gaming PCs to offline tournaments but by also adding additional tools to your FSD matchmaking experience. The best way to enjoy Dead or Alive 6 at the end of the day is by involving yourself with the community, and you're going to maximize your potential by having an account at FSD and being involved here.

More and more players are switching to PC because the graphics are better and the game runs optimally unlike base systems which are several frames behind. This is not only unfair to the players of DOA, but a year later this issue has not been fixed and likely will not be. Even if DOA6 is not in the best position right now, we intend to honor the people that do play DOA6 with our regular tournament reports & news updates and with new features like this Steam support.

The Last Of Us 2 won the golden joystick award!

I have no idea where the Tasmanian Sword is at... Oh well, let's find it on tonight's session of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap!
I'll be dammed, NRS actually addressed the poke meta in MK11, no more getting caught off gaurd by ppl mashing D1
Checked out some load times for a few current fighting games on next-gen. DOA5LR & DOA6 load fast!
Improving at fighting games comes one step at a time. I remember when I played with Juri online on USF4 in 2016 and my roommate asked why I used U1 (always used W/both tho), it doesn't do any damage. This was also my mentality back when I started playing AE 2012 when I would've liked to take things further, I considered U1 bad because it didn't do any damage.
Not sure what it is with The World Ends With You game or it's sequel, but just can't dig the art style and it's characters. It's like the art itself pops up on trying far too hard or something.
Week 1 of ranked was a success. Mishima's and Kazumi made green and so did Kuni. Was a lot harder than when the game 1st came out but that was when I was Hwoarang and Hwo's harder to handle than the others. Hopefully week 2 can be solid as well.
