Nuki and Yakkun and Matsuken don't win because they pick good characters.
They win because they're fucking monsters.
>tfw my beloved CvS2 will never have an event like this
Believe it or not tiers are even more rigid in CvS2 than in 3S.
In every 3S tourney you'll see Chuns, Kens and Yuns in top 8, but you also always have a one or two Urien/Makoto/Yangs/etc making it in
CvS2 is literally nothing but Blanka/Sagat/Bison/Sakura/Vega with maybe a cammy or a chun thrown in there. that's 5-7 characters in a 3on3 team game. That is fucking awful.
God awful balance is what really killed the longevity of CvS2, unfortunately.
This is how you choose a CvS2 team
First you have a choice, do you play Dictator or Sagat?
Once you've picked one of them you pick Blanka.
Then for your last character you pick a waifu or something. Your choice of Dictator or Sagat will determine your range of waifus to choose from.
haha i love it when a fucking mouthbreathing diaper tries to talk to me about my own game
the CvS2 scene in japan has been dead for nearly a decade. what you are seeing in that video is nowhere near what actual competitive CvS2 was like in japan at its peak.
kill yourself you dumb fucking faggot
yes he did, back when the game was new as fuck.
daigo also used t play guile back when the game was new. pretty soon though the meta got figured out and they all switched to the established top tier.
i generally preferred watching american cvs2 play because we used a much bigger variety of chars than the japanese. combofiend in particular was fucking awesome to watch
What's so good about CvS2 Dictator and Sagat? Genuinely don't know.
3rd strike needed another patch
What's the difference between red parry and normal parry?
>tfw can do that consistently on stick but no on pad
Fucked up pretty bad. Keystone was great back in the 90s for sf2 and Sunnyvale Golfland had probably the best cvs2 playerbase in the US in early 2000s for a few years at least. Buk/Choi/Ricky/kim1234 just crazy good players every tuesday and saturday pretty much.
Dic's custom combo using his vertical swipe looking special (he got it back in sf5). You can just chain it into itself over and over once you have the person in the corner and it does a fuck ton of damage on hit or block.
>sunnyvale will never have that section of fighting games again
Also apparently milpitas no longer has the arcade, got replaced with fucking laser tag. Milpitas also had an amazing fighting game section with 2 marvel cabs and a head to head 3s set up.
>usagi drop (manga) ending
why did you have to remind me
cute story about a pretty pathetic 20-something dude being forced to take care of a little girl when the rest of his family shuns her and him learning what fatherhood's about
ends with him fucking her and implied pregnancy
Nah I live about an hour from there
Honestly im not that weird
Yeah I had heard about that through my friend, never got the chance to check it out though. You ever play a really really really dark black dude who played sol?
I've gotten it to work by just doing the cd into ws trick but you may have different results. d,df,n 1
>Two events in the Japanese version of some phone game in a year
lol, deader than death
what's weird is that the author is a woman and the series is categorized as josei, which is manga aimed at girls and young women
the author was exploring some odd shit lel
I dont really play anything that isnt tekken these days anyway, sorry to disappoint
Honestly it has been way too long and I only really remember the big names I played. EmphyNAPS, Tragic, Ricky, Buk, Magus1234 for SVGL and Jun/Ken from SJSU mainly. If you played a white dude with glasses that used Testament or Anji, it may have been me. Back in like 2k2-2k5 at least.
Hey guise, i was playan sf4, i never played it before (im a Super turbo fan), so... Im maining my boy Dee Jay, i am actually really good with him but i found a problem, he is TRASH tier... Is he really that bad?
doesn't matter since
a) there isn't a huge disparity between tiers in Ultra, "bad" characters can still do well
b) game's dead in a month and you probably won't reach a level where tiers are that important
I mostly remember the marvel/tekken players, cvs2 never really interested me that much. Mostly because I didnt know how to fight RC, I still remember when a local player took out john choi
Oh sorry I misunderstood, yeah you kind of have to be off axis. I think her df3,2 ss1 puts you on said axis though.
Well when I watch only practice do it he seems to delay the ss1 a bit. To be honest I dont really bother with that, it seems extremely unnecessary
Yeah emphy and bronson, I never beat either of them. Marvel wise I met chunk/anthoneezy/woo through korngo. I wish our local scene hadnt broken up, I miss that guy
I picked nina
Anime plays at Gamecenter in San Mateo mostly I think. Think Foundry in San Francisco is the main SF spot. Smash has a decent scene around here in Walnut Creek area. I think there is also Round 1 arcade but I don't know where that is. Probably South Bay like everything good.
yea the combo is kinda superfluous, but it can be useful to kill time or kill red health off a tag buffer launch. either way, it's probably the best solo combo in the game aside from some crazy ch df2 pewgf combo, so i kinda wanna do it.
Yeah I see only practice do crazy damage with it, who do you play with nina? I'm currently playing her with zafina and its working pretty well
nein Yeah im down
Im watching this guy battles, and another guy called kurokiba on Yogaflame24 youtube channel... But man, even when is a normal guy playing, theres any video showin Dee Jay loosing a match.
This pictire is fucking disgusting... I dont know why.
i still ahve to make up for that faggotry the other night
yo is the dank new meme here that people actually like third strike, do people actually like fighting games here now? fill me in dude i've been gone forever
since i'm just learning her, i'm thinking of just doing lars so i can just steal stuff from only practice. but i also think lee or bob would be cool. any good poking character.
i wish zafina was good
i don't care about hype and stream monstering it's just refreshing to come back after so long and see people actually interested in fighting games, let alone 3s
this place was pretty fuckin bad at one point
yeah like i said it's just surprising to see. u getting t7 if it comes to pc?
she's okay. but i feel like she has too much stuff that just doesn't make sense for her to have. and
as a capo playeri feel like capos do her stuff better, which is saying something since capos aren't offensive characters.
Thought we were going to become tekken bros
east coast xrd pc bad sol/leo still seeking clashes
sf5 looks really shitty, is anyone actually excited for it?
for some reason it just hasn't at all interested me at really any stage in development, even if birdie and urien are in.
it seems like a lot of slow, boring setplay and a *severe* lack of depth. maybe i'm mistaken. I just don't think they nailed the balance of accessibility and depth that they could have.
you're a faggot man get it on pc. i don't want to get a ps4 stick
yeah the hivemind against 3s used to be pretty shitty iirc and in general this place was a lot uglier
i hear there are actually some good players here now as well which is tight
>feels like a slow, watered down, 3s at the moment.
i assume the key phrase is "at the moment", but i don't personally see much to be optimistic about a slower and watered down 3s.
maybe i'll like it more on release or something, but for now i don't even have plans to buy it on day 1, let alone preordering or anything like that.
i'm also fairly certain i've come to realize why guilty players love guilty so much. game is a ton of fun. more fun than i think i've ever had playing sf4 which i've played religiously since 09
yeah but fuck you
i want niggas to play with and i am definitely not spending close to $300 on tekken to then devote the next 3 years of my life to the in depth study of frame data encyclopedias in order to play at a functional level
Stick to smash and guilty gear then, I'll be dead in 3 years anyway according to you
Well 3s is my main game so it's nice to go back to something more familiar after 4 but I didn't mean 'slow and watered down 3s' as a compliment. The game feels too basic right now and I don't think the v system is enough to keep things interesting.
>sf5 is not going to be that at all
that seems to be exactly what sf5 is and that's one of the main issues i have with it. it seems so shallow it's almost baffling to me.
but really why the condescending aggression shit lol.
maybe 2 years if you keep eating a fucking pizza to urself every god damn day.
you say that like i'm a smash player and not a nigga who plays smash. i'm not tryin to take that shit seriously i just wanna fuck you up with ike
yeah that's what i was thinking. the gimmick gauges are stupid. and like you said, it's so basic that i'm really confused as to what people even see in it
i'm not trying to be a faggot about SF or anything i'm just really sad that after sf4 they're gonna drop what looks like a piece of garbage that would be totally doa if not for the SF name.
i like 3s as well, but i still think sf4 is a big name to live up to.
>that seems to be exactly what sf5 is
So you haven't played it or read anything about it at all? why are you posting about it
setplay heavy gameplay is literally the first thing SFV took out from 4
3S is the antithesis of how a Street Fighter game should be designed desu
alright my man you're clearly holding this game so close to your heart that i'll let you have it man i don't wanna bruise your ego i understand sf is an integral part of your life and identity i'm sorry for the attack on it
yeah man, me and mystic are actually fuck buddies didn't you know? whenever we play any game he gets fucked hard
Using eddy at the moment, seems pretty legit
I'll probably be picking it up on PC anyway, just dont want to deal with typical PC bullshit
>Gets trolled by game and watch 9's
>mr game and watch smash ball
dude stop don't touch me there. you niggas playing shit that gets the free hit smash balls i gotta aim all my shit damn.
yeah brotha man you caught me
just calling you a fuckin nerd desu.
Don't need to be good at a game to notice obvious design flaws. Similarly, being good at a game does not make the game good.
SF4 has a lot of dumb stuff but it's not nearly as bad as what's in 3S.
3s is a great game at the intermediate-to-low-tourney level imo
high level its dumb but fun to see and low level its shit like every fighting game at low levels
game and watch mirror matches when
>there are people who actually think this
lol I remember you moaning about not being able to aa with dp because of air parry. Same with broski. As if mixing up your options or altering your timing isn't a thing. Being ignorant about a game doesn't mean it's bad, kay?
>the topic of street fighter came up and the thread started to be shit
i wonder if this is how i came across back when the only fighters i liked were SF games. well it was good while it lasted
I AM STILL LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO PLAY XRD WITH ON PC THOUGH EAST COAST THANKS. or maybe something on fightcade. who jojos
Of course I'm going to moan about not being able to use what would be the correct option in literally any other game against a jumpin
Instead I have to bait it with jabs and shit and if they don't air parry I just did a whopping 20 damage. I can understand having to mix up your offense to get around ground parries, which I don't mind so much, but when empty jumping can beat any anti-air option that's just retarded. The amount of times in 3S games I've seen someone empty jump and the other person just not do anything because they were expecting an air attack is ridiculous.
>Just jab them, and if they parry it cancel into dp
That's what I've been doing when I've played it, and as I said if they don't parry I get almost no damage for my trouble compared to what they could get if they landed the jump in.
Just because the game plays differently does not make its design decisions terrible.
>wah the game is bad because it's not the same old shit
Plus if your character isn't garbage you're not netting 20 damage of a proper aa/parry situation if you know what you're doing. Again, your issues with the game come from ignorance and apparently from being stubborn too. The game is far from perfect but at least come correct with it's real issues.
Why does the V-Reversal voice in the official japanese SFV website still obscured with a "Coming Soon" written on it for the entire roster? We already know the mechanic itself. Maybe there is something about it they didn't show off yet?
i dont have a problem with air parries as a concept i just dont like the way they're executed in 3s
in yatagarasu if you mistime your air parry and get hit its a BL counter which is basically a fatal counter with absurd juggles
in 3s if you mistime your air parry you eat 10% from the anti air and the situation is reset
>Just because the game plays differently does not make its design decisions terrible
Yes it does, because that's subjective as hell. You're going in expecting traditional street fighter and hating it because it isn't.
So just don't play the game and/or shut the fuck up about it and you won't have to deal with how jump ins work.
Did Daigo really drop turdstrike because of chun-li?
>the game is bad because it's not the same old shit
Why do 3S players think these retarded mechanics get a free pass because they're "different"? There's no prizes for being unique.
Sorry for playing Street Fighter and expecting a traditional game.
Yeah, you just have to accept that it isn't traditional street fighter. If you can't get that through your thick skull then don't bother with it.
Not every game has to be the same, they're allowed to be different and 3S is different in an entertaining way if you play it like 3S instead of ST.
>went to Round1 earlier tonight
>everyone sucked at SSFVIAE even though it was exploitable as fuck
was my Sagat the best that night or did everyone just get destroyed? my alex got beat by a not bad Chun-Li in Third Strike though but I haven't touched that game for years.
3S is so good it's different from what SFII players got used to. It's why the western 3S scene is pretty much niche.
If you think otherwise, post your Fightcade name right now and I'll find you in the 3S lobby.
fucking dumbass capcom haven't give us fucking shit since that fang trailer over a month ago
im actually kind of worried how quiet they've been. you think they'd start talking about stuff they havent talked about right about this time
i swear if they delay the game im going to fucking hang myself
Random reactions like "YOOOOO THAT PARRY LET'S FREAKIN' GO!!!!" is not discussion desu
Would be interested to see which 4k monitors have 10ms or less and what testing was done on them. I've been interested in getting a better monitor but displaylag shows all the 1440+ monitors at like 23ms+.
>implying i don't know this
You can't hurt me. I hate myself more than you can possibly know.
when evo was a smaller event pre-sf4 they used to sell highlight reel dvds afterwards because streaming hadnt blown up yet
daigo's full parry was the 37th clip on the highlight reel for that year
mfw nico streams are still a thing
How many female gamers are that that have won a major?
pretty sure ricki has won some stuff and he's been a... wait she's always been a woman but he's or no.. give me aminute
she's always been trapped in a mans body so shers winnings are female counted?
Are we sure this is a female and not another KayoPolice? Just saying, they breed them out there in Japan.
doubt it. when they do get up there, it always seems like they don't take it home. for the king of iron fist 2015 european qualifier, there was a female player from italy who got 2nd (which meant she's qualified already), and just got bopped in grand finals. granted, it was vs claudio, and she probably hadn't played tekken 7 enough (if at all propr to the tournament) to know how to fight him and use king more effectively.
cool xrd playing bad leo and sol player seeks fun loving opponent on the pc with which to clash, preferably east coast
bro you tryin to see me in that fuckin cummy blasterz ft5
shit's gettin real cummy my guy
i would quite like to play eddie but i can't at all wrap my head around even the basics so i avoid it. i'd rather play order sol but he's not in the game
i picked up sol because this is my first semi-serious undertaking in the realm of chinese cartoon fighters and he feels really natural and smooth. i only picked up leo because of one of his colour palettes. and i'll be picking up johnny come revelator
cummy blaster is going to be a sick fuckin competitive high level game dude
i hope someone plays me in umvc3 today
Has anyone had issues following this guide to get Beta 3 to work?
I've followed the steps and am getting the error posted. I was hoping to take a laptop setup to some casuals running this week.
Any Yuros wanna mash in 3rd strike? That tournament actually made it look fun.
gief sim and laura and their stages
it's these three I think, just replace the old files with the new ones
I really don't understand why most of those people are going through so much hassle to get a broken version of an outdated build of a game that's coming out next month. I get it if you're actually playing offline and don't really care about what's going to change, but actually going into training mode is a bit silly considering how much the game changes.
It's a dude, I know it! No female can be this good-
>plays chun li
Alright, alright. It's only possible because it's Chun Li. If it had been C Viper or Sakura I would call bullshitt. I remember when Kayo first became a thing deep down inside I knew there was no way a female gamer could be that good with the character especially with SF4 being in it's baby stages. Kayo at the time was considered a better CViper than everywhere else in the world. I knew it was a man and I was right.

>Join beginner lobby in Xrd

It really needs context.
If you encounter some retards online that will constantly mash DP on wakeup and you read it then that is obviously stupid but if you are offline it may work for awhile as a "surprise move" kind of thing.
If you're getting hit with random DPs constantly, then you can't anticipate anything and you should probably stop playing fighting games. MOBAs might be more your style.
If you're constantly throwing out low forward as soon as you enter the max range for low forward, and your opponent realizes this and is constantly DPing you in anticipation for your low forward, then you're not getting hit with random DPs. You're getting outplayed and you need to learn how to be less predictable.
That can be fun too sometimes, I guess.
learn to instant block. learn to throw. youve now made leo completely irrelevant. go to the mission mode and do the vs leo ones. they have pretty simple example of practice. im shit and can do this consistently vs the avg retard leo even online. they always do the cross up and dash through. just dont push buttons on wakeup and theyll eventually be forced to cross through/dash through you from stance.

any tips on how to deal with Ky far S and other big buttons like it as Slayer?
sometimes i can get by them with 6P and dandystep
pretty new to the game so i might be missing something super obvious
Connections were fine on Thursday, but since Friday I've been only been able to connect to like 1 in 20 fightcade matches, and KoF XIII has gone back to being unplayable garbage
6P for most characters beats the randumb stuff he does from neutral. If hes actually good and not just random specials to get in, well, youll have to get gooder. But 214K, 236K, j.214K all lose to 6P from Ky, Axl, Pot, etc. Just set the dummy to do the moves you want to punish.
Leo's overhead is not hard to react to. Its like saying a dust is a legitimate mixup.
>playing Axl against new people
>playing Arakune against new people
Trial by fire
Man, I never knew how legit grappler Honda actually is. Cr.short ticks into ochio are ridiculous.
>jump vs axl
This is like the worst advice ever imaginable. Good advice would be something like how stance chains ahve hurtboxes and you can just uppercut him like a sim limb if he tries to go into it.
>tfw just got 30-0'd by some serbian in fightcade 3s

Well-choreographed wrestling with a neat storyline is amazing
Reminder to join the melty blood discord if you want to find people to play melty with and discuss the game, get advice etc.
We had a few americans join and there is a channel to find games for americans now, but it's not very populated, it's still mostly an european group! Either way, if you want to join you are welcome!!
Well I'm not a fan of things like an fgg steam/skype/discord/IRC because it doesn't really make sense to me, if I wanted to play with people in fgg I would just post in fgg. Game communities are another thing entirely, especially for a game like melty where there is no matchmaking and you have to ask for games, being limited to fgg is not the best. It's not a substitute for fgg in any way, it's a different thing. You can still talk and play melty in this thread just the same.
No idea desu senpai, I think the guy who made them has been slowing down on tournaments all around. I would do one myself but I can't stream, so.

Cassie, Mileena and D'Vorah though, god damn 10/10 why didn't I come here sooner.
Cassie's a nice girl but the game is kusoge.
Also you can turn off negative edge in the options iirc
Has this motherfucker ever heard of a comma
Mileena and cassie are best MKs.
>pick up MKX a while ago
>not think much of Cassie, figure sure they want to make a new generation Sonya fair enough
Life Is Strange over Steamsalesmas
>all of a sudden the idea of Cassie is awesome
>there are people not onboard with the Mileegion
This mostly applies to streetfighter:
Beware of negative edge, you might toss out supers/specials left and right depending on who you play as
Plinking is possible but try to focus on genuine execution, cause plinking can be a bitch to do. Personally I only plink by accident
If you plan on not using default button settings, make use of the macros (like PPP/KKK or whatever your game uses) since you're somewhat gimped due to button placement (depending on what controller you're using)
Some people prefer using the analog stick, especially for charge characters, and this will be easier on your thumbs. However, I prefer the D-Pad (if the dpad is good) and it seems to be easier to do shortcuts (323 movement or whatever it's called) and it seems a little more precise to me.
If you plan on going to locals at any point, there are adapters they sell online that will allow you to hook up to consoles/p.c.'s easier, depending on your controller for like $2-$5 (I've had to use ps2 controllers in locals and they feel kind of stiff)
Last but not least, controllers/gamepads are comfy as fuck
