Is 2016 the year when fighting games finally regain dominance among the competitive video game and e-sports scene and dethrones mobatrash for good?

Not accessible enough for casuals.

>>323697464
With the exception of BB all those games are designed to ease casuals in while still offering high level play for veterans
>>
No. The skill floor is still too high and the player base isn't there (aside from SFV)

It's not enough. Look at Rising Thunder. It removed inputs entirely and the scrubs were still scrubs. It will never be enough.

Why are fightan fundamentals so hard for millennials to understand?

BlazBlue is designed to cater to Japanese casuals. Sure, the games don't have much appeal with Western casuals, but the franchise is no less casual because of it.
>>
>>323699587
why learn fightan when you can just play league

Combo videos. Everyone wants to just jump in and do flashy shit and nobody wants to just stop pressing buttons for a few seconds and fucking block.

FGs will never dominate in popularity. Also all these games have like a couple months life spans apart from SF5. If it ends up being boring FGs are dead in the public eye and it will be back to before 2009 levels of obscurity.

is this pic supposed to make gg players look good?

and dogura plays bb anyways

>>323699676
My bad, I wasnt aware since I really dont play BB and am only know that Xrd is less demanding that previous games

Not simple enough for retards to play competitively, and no depth beyond how fast you can hit buttons in certain orders. The top esports games are all simple shit with just enough depth for casuals to sink their toes in.

KI is still mildly active in Xbone, and was before they gave season 1 away for free, too.

I mean, it doesn't have a huge community, but it's still alive. Same for Xrd.
>>
>>323700732
I mean strictly in the public's eye - which is what OP is talking about with dethroning mobas and whatever. These games may still have a decent amount of players but are quick to lose viewers, especially for smaller tournaments( all that are not EVO ).

Most obvious example would be MKX this year with the amount of hype and viewership it had in the beginning and then it just went poof

oh man that's funny. You think just because you don't like a type of game that makes it trash. Fighting games aren't gonna get to the top of esports any time soon buddy.

ASW has a pretty tight lock on casual arcade players with BlazBlue. They did try to expand the Guilty Gear audience with Xrd, but BB remains more popular with Japanese casuals.

Fighting games are the ultimate casual filter. It requres research, dedication, practice, many things casual audiences can do without. Even with "combo buttons" allowing you to mash and get combos, you still need to learn proper spacing and blocking to hold your own in any match.

Casuals just don't have the time or patience to learn fighting games.
>>
Only if:

The Tutorials are genuinely good and comprehensive
The Training mode that has every option under the sun
It has non shitty single-player modes (something unique for each character)
All players use wired connections
>>
>>323704586
Killer instinct has 3 of those 4

dunno about the single player

Are you kidding? The best fighting game coming out in 2016 is the re-release of Last Blade 2, not any of those trash games.

Like holy fuck what is wrong with you when you list fucking BlazBlue when that stopped being a joke and is now just plain fucking sad? That series stopped being decent at around CS2.
>>
>>323696915
>>Killer Instinct Season 3

Yeah, a W10/Xbone exclusive.
>>
>>323705008

SFV being Steam/PS4 is better?
>>
>>323697774
Lowering the execution barrier extends the time casuals play such games to two weeks instead of one I guess, but in the end they will still quit after being beaten up hard by people who are playing the game instead of just pressing buttons.

This will never change, fighting games will never be appealing to casuals, those will always prefer party games like Smash.
>>
>>323705147
>SFV being Steam/PS4 is better?

Steam is better than W10 yes since it isn't locked behind a shit OS.
Also the PS4 is the currently best system out of the MS and Sony shit flinging contest.
MS are even screwing up their own flagship series like Halo.

Xrd has a godlike tutorial that explains the game flow very well even if you never had any contact with fighting games before, and its mission and challenge mode are enough for the player to be ready to play against someone without looking too bad.

Of course people need to actually do the large amount of tutorials and missions, and judging from what I keep encountering online on player matches it surely isn't the case for most people.
>>
>>323705507
>>being stuck on a shitty DRM service is better than an OS

Yes? If you think W10 (that can even uninstall or remove shit it deems shouldn't be on the system) is better than Steam you're a fucking retard.
Steam has tons of shit and Valve are fucking incompetent yes, but W10 is for braindead retards.
Did it not even occur to you why they gave away the upgrade for free, you massive idiot.

>>being stuck on one mediocre console is better than being stuck on anther mediocre console

Like I said, out of the two teh PS4 is the lesser evil. Sorry but I'm not some idiot that "buys american" or some shit.
>>
>>323705147
Considering it allows for crossplay, yes
>>
>>323705850
KI has crossplay, too.
>>
>>323705678
>Casual detected

Yeah, because BlazBlue is clearly the most hardcore fighter out there. Especially with them dumbing it down constantly.
I mean GG Accent Core +? Man what kind of kiddie game is that? BlazBlue is what the men play, amirite?
>>

>W10/Xbone exclusive.

M$ can fuck off for trying to sucker people into upgrading to 10.
>>
>>323706034
So tell me why the Xbone is better then, go ahead.
>>
>>323705903
True, but PC SFV isn't locked behind W10. PS4 also has KoFXIV on the way and thats exclusive.
