So many characters can play the meta in DOA6, but I think the best are the grapplers, phase-4, diego, hitomi, and Nyo. Still experimenting with characters. I don't think there is anyone that is necessarily bad in the game however, maybe more difficult matchup's but not to the point where you need to play someone else.
One character I took a strange liking to in the beta was Diego.. think it was after his shirt exploded off -shrugs-. No seriously lol, he has some strong fundamentals; one of the most honest characters I've seen. Really has to work for his deep stuns though
Their community has been working really hard to get recognized, I feel they've earned a spot *announced UNIST*. Also heres a new game that's not even out yet with no knowledge of community support *announces samsho*
Played a few hours of the beta on xbl. Netcode has improved, but still avoiding all wifi players. There were no lobbies even though TN said there would be. Hopefully, we get them tomorrow. Game feels GREAT. Love the neutral play.
