Blessing the thread.
Gonna try to get back into things.
That's a pretty rude thing to say, you know.
Calm down, Terumi.
If you could use any archenemy / nox nyctores but had to suffer the negative side effects, which one would you use?
For those who didn't see it,
>Vs Nu: "Hate me all you want, I'm not going to make your death a quick one."
>Vs Mu: "Why does she have so much power? Stay out of my way!"
> Vs Lambda: "You feel very incomplete, I'm sorry, but I'll have to exterminate you before you become a problem".
> Vs Noel: "Drop the act, my eye proves to me that you aren't human so I'm not about to hold back!"
If you wanna improve your execution you should make a goal of how many times you can do your combo in a row and then try to break that record. That's what I started doing with Makoto. I got to 23 on my midscreen bnb.
>Flux Redactum: Ignis
I'll be taking that.
You do it with every combo. Anti air combo, throw combo, od combo, midscreen, midscreen to corner, corner. I have a checklist that I'm working on and I write down the number next to each combo. Then you can throw in some obscure combos after that.
I hate to argue semantics, but it didn't specify just a Nox.
>If you could use any archenemy / nox nyctores but had to suffer the negative side effects, which one would you use?
I have no fucking clue what he OP meant by Archenemy, but that's not a fucking Nox.
If you're gonna twist my arm about it though then I guess Muchorin.
Fuck I'm retarded, I keep thinking Ragna's Azure Grimoire is an actual Nox and not just his headless alternate self. Probably because of all its downsides.
Oh, I guess I've already got Ouroboros. Explains my main.
Well let's see.
Lambda was just an incomplete thing that was thrown away, and is relatively okay.
Nu was tortured and mind-fucked for a long ass time.
Mu has Azure shit and mind-fucked shit.
I don't know shit about that BE chick.
I love Hazama! Every thread!
What the fuck is wrong with you
That's yuuka kazami, dumbass.
And Tsubaki's are Latin. That's why she's literal perfection.
Keep talking shit. See what happens.
>Jan 9, 2016
>still no Trinity
>still no Jubei
>still no Clavis
hey shes definitely not bad for a BB girl in fact izayoi is a badass design. if in CF she changes her attitude the only thing i would have against her is the hat. how do you defend that hat? makes no sense
You know what else is rude? Rape.
She is my second fav girl even if she is the product of generations of incest.
Allright, which one of you autists wrote this.
He tried to get between Litchi's tits in an earlier scene of Chronophantasma and talks about how beating up on Nine is turning him on and makes a comment to her that basically asks if He's better than Jubei in Central Fiction. Of course it turns out in that scene things were playing out like the Emma Frost scene in that one X-men movie.
Playerbase tier list
S tier: Valkenhayn, Rachel, Relius
A tier: Bullet, Amane, Carl, Hazama, Izayoi
B tier: Litchi, Lambda
C tier: Jin, Arakune, Celica, Tager, Kagura
D tier: Ragna, Makoto, Bang, Kokonoe, Platinum, Mu, V-13
E tier: Tsubaki, Terumi, Hakumen, Azrael, Noel, Taokaka
Why do fanfic writers always mutilate the english language?
What a surprise. Japan finds a way to take Best Girl and make her shitty.
Why does nippon fear Latin?
But she is still perfect.
>clicked it thinking it was a cutscene from CP
Why do you hate me so, Anon
I have to perform a Shinto cleansing ritual of watching something drawn and voice acted by Japanese to cleanse my mind of that gaijin garbage
Reminder that people who hate Tsubaki are literal degenerates and subversives. Her sense of justice is correct and Ragna a shit.
Tsbubaki dispenses true justice. You can talk about your stinky, old, scruffy Bang all you want, but don't bring Tsubaki into it.
Don't you dare talk about my Ragna that way.
Don't be jealous, you'll get yours.
>"BAKA JA NAI DESU"
>" Baka,Baka ga?"
>"Baka wa baka Baka ga!"
Can someone explain this shit? Why do they keep doing this to each other? I swear I watched a CF match a few hours ago with them and that's all I heard The hell?
I don't give a fuck about Tsubaki, but Ragna is perfection.
>That sounds like a Ragna vs Noel fight. Don't they constantly call each other stupid in their fights in English, too?
Oh, constantly, "You're making me mad!" "Your such a...little brat!"
Who else is excited for Ragna's death in CF? I don't know why so many people pretend to like him here, I guess it's a meme or something.
Also, let's talk about Tsubaki!
Yes, let's talk about how Tsubaki and Ragna would make a cute couple and her impending entry into the Ragnabowl come CF.
Whelp. Looks like Naoto has another pre-fight quip with Ragna: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PZj8xBZVpA
Your own existence as Ragna pisses me off.
You're on! You'll regret it, you shitty brat!
How much do you wanna bet that
Naoto is well aware that his being in the future is fucking over Ragna's existence?
Stop. Enough of this shit. Best girl gets best boy, and that's the end of it.
Oh, she'll get best boy alright, but she'll have to share.
Since when did Lelouch vi Britannia start giving this nigga posing lessons?
So the next one might be the 13th then? We must start calling these things "Hierarchical Threads".
That shit would be so based.
No, not a single character trades blows this time because nobody remembers much. Jin doesn't even go into his usual spams against Ragna either. I guess they are saving those for the final act.
I wish you did. I thought you just made a typo or something, but it turns out you're literally retarded, considering you consider Ragna anything other than complete trash and the source of all problems.
There's actually a decent amount of people playing right now. More than usual I feel like.
Are people just hyped for CF?
>More than usual I feel like.
Its the weekend. Its always more live on the weekend. I'm tad bit hype for CF, my main and sub got some nice changes things are looking good.
Did Ragna piss in your cheerios or something?
Some observations I noticed when watching CF Makoto. He keeps getting the max charge level 2 and level 3 whenever he wants, that tells me Arcsys did something to make it easier. He's unable to land a throw combo midscreen, I guess midscreen throw combos are hard. He didn't use Sirius Jolt even once. I don't know why.
>That faggot platinum ruined that glorious makoto gameplay
I remember this video all to well
Best girl continues being best. Glad to see Mori getting some taste.
5b has been nerfed plenty of times. and in the later lists (a few months before cp release) jin, and noel, were bumpped right into mid tier.
again, when you have a ridiculous neutral game, or a tool like 5b, you're not going to be bad
CUTEST girl and best girl.
She's the only one you don't have to get cucked to be with.
Plus reddie and motherly chest/instinct
and she transforms into Seiba
Guys what to do
>She's the only one you don't have to get cucked to be with.
Also since when does Tsubaki has a motherly chest or instinct? Her chest is simply average and all she cares about is "justice".
>Go to ranked.
>Surprisingly find a match every few minutes.
>Most of my opponents had less than 10 fights ranked before.
>Like half of them are using Terumi.
What happened? Is it Terumi Saturday or something?
>harbingers of destruction
Does THIS look like a doombot to you?
Tsubaki is just average and is jealous of bigger-breasted girls. Don't forget that BB is filled with titty monsters.
Yeah, Tsubaki was almost as upset as Noel when she learned that Mai's breasts had grown. She isn't as outspoken about wanting to have bigger breasts as Noel, but she still is sore about her size.
I think that almost all girls without large breasts are jealous of the more well-endowed girls. Noel and Platinum are the most blatant examples, but Tsubaki and Celica are also quite touchy about their breast size. Kokonoe throws tantrums over her small chest after the band endings in CS and even Rachel was part of the group of girls trying to increase their breast size in the CS Platinum gag end.
We don't really know yet. He's the protagonist of the light novel spinoff and sounds like a Ragna knockoff. But he also hears Ragna in his head and has a bunch of other bizarre connections that are thus far unexplained.
Valk and Relius knew him, he knew them.
Therefore, they're the same Valk and Relius from BE.
Therefore, the Clavis we see in Phase Shift is the same Clavis from BE.
Therefore BE and BlazBlue follow the same set timeline.
This just in! CF tier list
Ragna is best boy
But is anyone playing her in CF?
Dustloop is dead
againso I can't check. I know they took away Spike Chaser and replaced it with something worse, and reduced every D chain length by 1. The second one worries me but I guess they wanted shorter combos all around in CF anyway.
I still can't imagine her being that bad though, unless they did something very drastic.
>that nine idle animation
Finally found a new main after Arakune became poo. Hope she's fun to play.
Can anyone tell.
What are these channels?
>women are only interested in gay sex
Truly you are wise beyond your years. I guess you know almost nothing about eromanga and doujinshi artists since there are plenty of women who draw straight port.
Why was Nu sane and lucid for like thirty seconds at the end of CS, and why'd she become crazy again?
No, these were from a drawfag back in the summer /v/ threads I think.
Well, Nu being saved is a given. But did they reprogram her when Relius/Terumi found her putting herself back together in the boundary? Did Kokonoe's good programming versus the evils of Relius' computer science cause a personality shift depending on who was messing with her brain last?
Normally I don't care about origin stories for stuff, but I kind of want the full story of how Nu came back in CP. Feel like the arcade route didn't tell me a whole lot.
Yeah, Hazama retuned her when she put herself back together. I am guessing her arcade mode was trying to show us that.
Yeah, if you were midway through absorbing a projectile, you were fully invulnerable during the little animation that happened. It was pretty funny absorbing a Dead Spike and watching a Ragna try and dash up and do stuff and be like ???
Well, makes about as much sense as anything else.
I hope we get cute, relatively sane Nu back at some point.
I at least want a mandatory Alpha gag reel, where they spend the whole time fucking up the fusion
yeah it's real nice for anyone that doesn't have a meterless dp
since drive moves don't give opponent heat on block you can really fuck with them in the corner until they IB you
I love celica because she is an obnoxious "sacchrine" airhead, and i wish she'd be shoved into my face!
I honestly think it's going to be nerfed
They nerfed the FC/crouching 5B 5C j.2D loop for the same reason in CP. I wouldn't mind all that much so long as there's replacement combos.
CP1.0->1.1->CPE Terumi lost a lot of good OD combos when they changed his shit and I don't want it to happen in CF, since OD is all that makes him good this time around.
You could have it much worse
But they aren't. Meanwhile, responding to every celica post with a statement on how much you hate a fucking fictional character is an actual thing an autistic person would do.
Watchin this Makoto combo video. Did they change the overhead back to forcing crouch? I'm not sure but he gets crouched after getting hit. You haven't had that since like CS2
I'm getting triggered by you faggots misappropriating the word autistic. Please kindly cease, thank you.
Which boards do you think your favorite characters would browse? I'll start out with best girl!
There's probably some /pol/ in there to start with. Maybe some /his/ sprinkled in too. But there's going to be a LOT of /y/, /hm/ in there too. Maybe some /d/.
>I'll start out with best girl!
I don't see Makoto in that picture
/jp/ because he'd shitpost all day
I would fucking marry that
You're goddamn right.
would sacrifice a thousand innocents for
it happens before the move comes out, gets hit high and low.
it almost hits minerva in your image anyways and that's who takes the hits. terumi 5d will be struck without hitting the arm.
i don't want this to devolve into an argument over who has the shitter hurtbox, they're both pretty awful, but minerva isn't the one that takes the hits as far as hurtboxes are concered. celica is the one with a hurtbox, and minerva's blades shouldn't have a hurtbox anyway
then why are her hurtboxes so huge? I whiff 5As in neutral and hit her during moves, it only makes sense if it's because minerva's moving forward or back.
it'd be nice if arcsys released hitbox data
well it makes sense that minerva has a hitbox on her 5b and shit because it's a kick, but it's a general rule in this game that swords and shit don't have hurtboxses, where as every move minerva has has a shitty hurtbox extending into and sometimes beyond her blade-things. clearly terumi has this shit too with his j.5c
i just thought there was justification this time because minerva actually is the one getting damaged, so it'd be weird to have that and then have celica have the hitboxes, as it's not a relius/carl doll kind of deal but a two-in-one.
maybe they fixed it a bit in CF because celica seems to be kicking ass there. they must be changing some of those moves unannounced, that terumi j.5c didn't have that bad of a hitbox in CPE.
No such thing exists. Celica is the best girl, but there is much dispute in these threads
Reminder that the best boy will be sleeping in late soon.
Better enjoy waking up in the early morning with him while you can.
I refuse to believe that. Everyone either loves Makoto or loves their waifu and Makoto.
Can't speak for everyone, and while mai waifu is always #1 in my heart, I will compromise and say Makoto is probably best girl.
No. She's alright in my book though.
Just had to ask because you said "mai waifu"
Is Jubei voice actor for the chronophantasma extend gag reels the same as the one we had since CT?
He sounds much different then how he usually sounds. His voice sounds much deeper and rough then before.
Valkenhayn vs. Nine: "How pitiful, to think you and your soul have fallen into the Boundary. At least allow me to end your suffering quickly and painlessly."
Celica vs. Naoto: "Ragna...? No, you're not him. Who are you exactly?"
Terumi vs. Platinum: "Get out of there right now! Don't ignore me, Trinity!"
Terumi vs. Jin: "Such a disgusting looking gaze... You're saying you want to become a real "hero"? That's stupid, you'll just die right away."
No mention of
Trinity inhabiting Jin's body. That sucks.
>It's pretty scrubby my friend.
If you do it all the damn time, maybe. Houtenjin's pretty much only purpose is to be used as a reversal, and sometimes you reversal on wake-up. Removing the invincibility from it is a huge nerf.
>-20 frame adv
It's a counter, what do you want me to say.
Houtenjins are mostly to be used as combo filler or finishers, it's start-up is still fast so what they're trying to teach you here is to think before you mash super with Hazama.
>what they're trying to teach you here is to think before you mash super with Hazama
And as a result, he got no reversal, and is an overall worse character. It does not only effect scrubs who mash it.
Negative frames on phorizer don't fucking matter when its almost impossible to punish and pushes the opponent across the screen. Izayoi has sonic saber and can telepprt so its pretty fucking viable as a reversal.
This has to be bait, but whatever...
Go watch some match vids. Even the best Japanese players will wakeup DP and super occasionally. SKD DP'd a lot when he used to use Ragna.
And against characters with good mixup, you have to at least show them that you are willing to use that option or they are just going to throw their hardest mixups at you all day. If you've shown them that you are willing to DP/Super, they start baiting which usually means not mixing you up and ending their pressure.
Plus, if you KNOW you cannot block your opponent and will get opened up for 3k+...the risk reward is actually BETTER if you use DP?/Don't DP as your defensive strategy.
Well, I'd say that beeing more balanced, in Hazama's case, means worse.
>Go watch some match vids. Even the best Japanese players will wakeup DP
Using supers as a reversal is still unsafe. Risk 50/50 on 100 meter is not something a smart player would do. Belligerent? Wild? Sure.
Calm down, it doesn't even push you that far on block. You can't just blocked super > special without there being some delay
However you look at it, guy.
This is bait right?
I said I have mixed feelings about it. At times I praise it and a lot of times I hate it.
>Using supers as a reversal is still unsafe.
Dude, lots of pro players throw out unsafe shit all the time. Fucking Daigo is known for throwing out seemingly random DPs in neutral, it doesn't really get more unsafe than that.
Look, I'm obviously not saying that you should super on every fucking wake-up, but saying that no smart player would ever do it is just retarded. There is a time and place for it.
Why can't Bullet be good? It's not fair.
So why exactly is Lambda suddenly alive in CP and separate from Nu?
I should note I don't have it because I'm poor as shit
Unfortunately obscured in the game by an ugly green aura.
Murakumos are really something though.
I think its because she wants to see Ragna
Well. You aren't wrong.
Does anyone know if CF cabs have a usb port so you can use your own stick or controller?
Never used a stick in my life and I know I'd be embarrassingly bad trying to use one without practice.
I think Act 2 is going to have 2 new characters. Izanami and whoever this hand belongs to
i'm gonna say 5
naoto, hibiki, and nine are already in arcade, and they've hinted at a playable Trinity (a character select portrait has appeared). as well the "mystery katana wielder" who looks similar to Jin and is hunting him down is almost definitely Mai due to their weapon and color scheme.
I've never seen a convincing explanation why that's not Jin. The color of the hilt is a bit off, which is probably due to lighting, but that looks exactly like Yukianesa. And the gloves and the rest of the clothes there are also Jin's.
For one thing, that's the male uniform. For another from what Makoto said Mai left the academy without joining the NOL military.
back during CT, jin's 214a/b/c was an easily spammable scrub move
it got nerfed in CS and the inputs changed, it's still pretty good though
it's much better in CP though it's still not a scrub move like it used to be
Ice Car was fucking instant basically
Ice Car used to be able to go full screen in the older BB's so it was the "Go-To" move for Jin
Real text messages put together with BB sprites.
They've been made with other characters too. And Makoto is quite literally the girl that's most open about sex and most prone to make sexual innuendo. Her presentation in them fits with that.
It amuses me that Makoto is more willing to openly say that she's attracted to Jin than Tsubaki.
Why doesn't Makoto use Ars Magus in her combat style? She's clearly capable of using it.
but all the barrier blocks are ars magus, so that doesn't count
desu both the names are fucking stupid, "nox nyctores" literally means "night like night" but it''s in a different language so it's excusable for English players
Yeah, but it works since we can use Nox in a sentence without it appearing we are talking about something other than weapons. And it preserves the nonsensicalness of the original name.
They are called Arch Enemy Phenomenon Weapons because they were created to fight the enemy of mankind, i.e. the Black Beast. Do you mean that the Noxes have mini-black beasts in them? That's not that story-releveant; it's just there to show how far Nine was willing to go in order to shield Celica.
"Ah... Gordon," Lambda said. "You have returned."
"The resonance cascade has finally been stopped, Half-Life-chan. It's safe."
Gordon pulls out his big, long hard 'crowbar' and gets to work on Lambda. Steam is released from her valve.
How tough is Platinum to learn? I got her basic confirms down pretty easy but I'm not really sure how to handle item management and when to go for equips vs bubble oki.
