You asked and here it finally is! The next PSN Xrd tournament! Here's the link. Any questions about the time and date are welcome as well as criticism and advice on how to make the tournament a smoother and better experience for all. The date of the tournament is subject to change and I will post about the change ahead of time on here and the steam group.
The steam group is for use in the tournaments and makes it easier to get in contact with people who have registered in it.
Akiha is not a slut, and she would play fighting games with an arcade stick!
Ibuki stole Alex's spot on SFV!
Every two months on Tuesdays I would assume because that's when PSN updates.
There has to be one DLC character on Day one for them to fit them all in for 2016, since the game is releasing two months in already
When fighting against Ramlethal, is it better to block her strings low or high? It feels like it's easier to just block high and switch down for the heel kick only. Not sure if that'sjust becausey oopponent is bad.
>/v/ is still pretending people play xrd on /fgg/
SOMEONE TEACH ME IBUKI IN 3S
>tfw you lost 6 golden shoryukens because you thought daigo's ryu would beat infiltration's nash
well that's $600 down the drain.
Lucky for you that she isn't real and never finds out what you just said.
Nope. It's just not showing up whatsoever.
I guess it's for the best I just got nearly perfected against three times in a row by a Sol.
>Get Cornered every match.
>Have no idea what to do at that point since his balls were practically in my face.
Juri's back? When'e Sakura?
you must find toasted, he can be your guide
I play her as my second character alongside Makoto in 3S
What do you want to know? If I respond, or if you want me to show you things on fightcade I can do that but I think I'll watch ATP live before doing any of that
Learn to Instant Block. You'll get blown up a lot while getting used to the timing, but it'll shut down most Sol players who just throw out random mindless pressure. Also, I'm pretty sure slide beats Fafnir and Bandit.
>IBO is a pretty good show on it's own but it's very average for a Gundam show
AYYY LMAOOOOO. Found the UC shitter.
IBO is decent as a gundam show. I bet he didn't like Reconguista in G.
That being said Gundam Thunderbolt is actually downright amazing, and I can't wait for the next episode next month.
>upgrade CPU to AMD 8350
>SFV runs now
shit the hype train is REAL
>beta still isn't up
>the game is still over a month away
It's near Altamonte and Longwood. It's about a hour drive from Orlando to give you a point of reference.
>Another Floridian mains May.
I'm not surprised honestly. She seems to pander to us well.
It's fine. Not really a main spacing tool but you should use it sometimes, it can also work as a more "careful" button to oki with, the follow up into toward MK is good, and vs shitty opponents you can do that a few times then stop doing the follow up and instead go for neckbreaker (obviously punishable and pretty shit)
In most situations I'd say go for toward HK more, it is so fucking good (especially vs characters it doesn't whiff on crouching from max distance). Away MK whiffs on some opponents the same way
but ATP boys now
Ggs everyone. Sorry I had to close the lobby. Gotta head out to work now.
He actually did like Reconguista in G.
Nope just a picture.
>offlane shaker goes 0-10 because he tries to get last hits 1v2
>blames everyone but himself
this obliviousness makes me so angry. i see why people get mad at dsp when he loses in sf now
I typically post on /v/ but I saw a few comments about Vega, is it true you guys hate Vega players? People were circlejerking about how Vega takes no skill at all and is for retards, why? He's been my main since II and he has pretty fucked up inputs compared to the rest of the cast, and he has low damage output and low health.
Is there some sort of anti-Vega vitriol I've missed since I don't care to communicate with other FG players?
nobody cares who you play against the cpu KIDDO
They're adding Akuma so it's pretty clear they're finding a way to work in zoning and "long distance".
Regardless, you should give Tekken Tag 2 a go. It's great.
I know, I didn't get into the beta but I was told he's no longer charge.
Thanks to these posts, I'm gonna bookmark /vg/ and come here more often then (I hate /v/ SF threads and I only opened one recently to find Vega butthurt, mind you cucks) - and since I'm Strayan I hope you fags enjoy bitching in the FGG threads about how you couldn't counter me flying all over the place due to miniscule lag.
I wasn't talking about how he "took skill" you fucking sperg, I don't care about that since his charge style is what I'm used to and have been since the late 90's, it feels as normal and comfortable to me as a shoto who just started out. I'm talking about how people seem really spiteful towards people that use Vega despite him being low tier.
guys, for like 6 months you've been getting baited by /v/ coming here and asking dumb questions
this kid shows up and even tells you he's from /v/ before asking a dumb question
how are you still falling for this gambit?
no wonder you're bad at fighting games
>this place will be worse than when xrd came out for pc once sf5 comes out
all the pc xturd players were already here, the shitposting just got ramped up because they finally had something to play besides melty
sf5 release is going to unleash an entirely new species of underaged casual
Then my bad, last time I checked a tier list was in Vanilla and I assumed it was still the same. I just play the games and avoid communities.
Seriously, why all the butthurt ITT? The fuck is wrong with you people?
Sorry fampire. I was just kinda used to hostile shit here so I replied without really looking into it. I saw the first line and that's what a lot of people seem to say about Vega players and assumed.
People on /v/ are, on average, unlikely to have any in-depth knowledge of a game outside of casual playthroughs. They're likely to just call something cheap or unfair if it beats them.
the only thing I've practiced with sol is dustloop
....did you make a new account just to beat up on people anonymously? If so
it worked :^)Don't ever play your main though or people will catch on.
Or I could have just got baited by the image.
jp acct? I need to make one still. Will you redownload mkx when ggpo/season 2 hits, I need someone to mash erron njp for me :^]
If you think the scene as a whole cares after 5 minutes that sonic fox is a furry beyond disapproving glances, you're mistaken. As embarrassing of a human being as he is, mkx died because of netkode.
give a reason why you hate melee other than it being a meme
It's perfect training for when my actual main arrives then.
>All those taunts
>DSP delivers his classic "WOOOOOW" and "I couldn't do anything!" lines at the end
>Keep your cool in battle next time. It'll do you wonders.
>YOU ONLY WON CAUSE YOU CHANGED HOW MANY ROUNDS THERE WERE
Ah the memories.
its doing well for a scene that only really emerged in the last few years
stinkyChloe hits like a fucking truck on steroids
yeah but it wasn't nearly as popular as it is now
anybody has pictures of the cali arcades with Central Fiction?
>demonik's not in yet
good to know I have a decent chance then
I should probably plug in my ps3 and start practicing
>tfw no competitive racing game scene
Using your criteria this would be most likely the last 5.
Give it time. He might still join.
of course there is a competitive racing game scene, they just don't play the babyshit simcade games you like
this post is like if someone came in here and said
>tfw no competitive ufc/fight night/wcw vs nwo scene
alright no problem, looking forward to the tournament
also yeah I got a new converter a couple of weeks ago but I've been too absorbed in W101/bayo to plug in my ps3
anyone else up for some Xrd
I'm keeping hope alive man.
I got to get back to playing that.
So I've moved on from playing P4AU and just picked up Street Fighter last month.
My friends and I are going to go to evo this year since it's close enough to drive and I was wondering about the average skill level in the first stages. As in, for those of you who've been before: If I dedicate myself to the game for 6 months do I stand a chance at not going 0-2 or is even the entry level dominated by veterans at this point?
Shadow Mewtwo has been confirmed as unplayable by normal means.
Whats likely going to happen is that the Amiibo unlocks a full Shadow Mewtwo or as a temporary state its Mewtwo's burst mode.
Yes, regularly. Mew2king, Hungrybox, Mango, Armada and PPMD are consistently ranked year in and year out as the best Smash players in the world.
Aren't there "gods of GG" as well?
Shadow Mewtwo is not taking up a spot on the roster. You have to use an amiibo to play him
Ctrl + F Heracross
Enjoy your disappointment
evo is a little different the first one or two matches of pools are ridiculously easy unless you get a ridiculous bracket like daigo first match.
if you practice hard you might get to pool quarter or even semi-finals if you get lucky.
making it out of pools completely requires much more experience than 6 months of training will give you unless you are some kind of SF prodigy. pool finals/semifinals usually has a killer or well-known tournament player or above-average unknown waiting for you.
If you're a nobody there's a strong chance you'll play someone very strong first round. I played a jap this year and got fucked up and then the first 3 rounds of losers were really bad players. I was able to get 3 wins before being eliminated by the guy that put me in losers. I was playing for a year up to that point. Pretty good chance you wouldn't go 0-2 in 4 if that was the game being played but it will almost definitely be 5 at evo this year so who knows
read the gematsu link
>The three characters join the previously announced Blaziken, Charizard, Gardevoir, Gengar, Lucario, Machamp, Pikachu, Pikachu Libre, Sceptile, Shadow Mewtwo, Suicune, and Weavile for a total of 15 playable Pokemon fighters.
also, Chandelure was just announced, and was in the background before that
if you want to play vs people, tag 2. if you want to play broken bob and lars in training mode, tekken 6. you can get tekken revolution if you want, but i wouldn't put much time into it.
literally talking about stream numbers bud please read the posts you reply to
if you think actual tournament player demographics are reflected by twitch viewers you're even dumber than you assumed i am
the shittiest players at evo are still probably going to smear you. if they travel to vegas to play a game they're pretty serious about it
it's still worth it for the experience and souvenirs though
Click the links before you make an assumption you fucking idiot
Shadow Mewtwo is ONLY PLAYABLE by using the Amiibo
Meaning he is not on the roster cause you can't use an Amiibo on the Pokken machines.
Shadow Mewtwo is console only and requires an amiibo.
So he probably isn't gonna take up one of the character slots. If anything he'll be right in the middle where Random select is.
yea man good shit. you play sakura right (fuck that character t b h) but i was rooting for you.
you looked hella nervous, just try to get out to more tournaments the on-stream jitters goes away after a bit.
nah there's more likelihood of people going to and entering evo as complete scrubs. there are plenty of people who just play and play and only go to evo, or who just don't play and just go to evo. they think it's like their big chance to break out in the scene and show what they've got.
i mean, that's the appeal of every major, but it's most pronounced with evo since it's literally the biggest one.
this isn't a pokemon porn board
Take your mewtwo fetish elsewhere
in ggxrd if you have less than 50% or less life and the other guy has 50% or more tension is there any reason not to burst the second he touches you?
taking the combo and oki seems like you always end up in a worse situation
He is console exclusive however. That pretty much means he's not one of the final five. Its either going to be an unlimited type character where he is Mewtwo's Burst Mode and selecting Shadow Mewtwo is just Mewtwo in permanent Burst or he's gonna take up the random select spot in the middle.
scv is fun. just because it's not sc2 doesn't mean it's just bad or not fun. it's just not sc2.
that said, if you had to buy one or the other, sc2 for sure if you have friends to play it with, even casually it's better. if not scv still has some people online somehow.
Jump in the corner guy for sure. that's my 2nd specialty after going for chip and losing by a pixel
Yep I don't like playing her anymore but I'm pretty much stuck now. I played in tournaments on a weekly basis after that until my scene lost interest in sf4 about a month ago. nerves are better but I still choke on stream
so anyone that likes mewtwo actually is autistic
The opponent could be waiting for that, especially if you continuously do it as soon as he gets a combo started. The other one is if you are at way lower life than him and think you won't be able to come back in this round, you could save your burst for the next. Also "the second he touches you", not every random hit leads into combos so you might not want to be too trigger happy with that.
There are a lot of mindgames and stuff with bursts and there are many factors to consider. I'm not really an expert GG player or anything though
What kinda of people play 3rd strike?
lmfao did janny seriously delete a fucking pokken post
/vp/ is an outdated board whose sole purpose to contain the excess amount of Pokemon discussion that existed when /v/ was a singular board.
Implying we can't talk about a fighting game themed Pokemon game, being developed by an iconic fighting game director, because /vp/ as a board exist is retarded.
Melty Blood only belongs in >>>/mb/
Marvel only belongs in >>>/mrvl/
Guilty Gear only belongs in >>>/asg/
Mortal Kombat only belongs in >>>/nrsg/
Street Fighter only belongs in >>>/capcomg/
Pokken only belongs in >>>/vp/
woops! would you look at that, Pokken is the only game with an entire board dedicated to its franchise
>but i dont want to post in vp!
fuck off back to /vp/ you disgusting furry faggot
how do i win evo for sf5 next year? lay out my training program for me
Not for at least a year, no.
100 push ups
run 10 kilometers
makoto is my favorite fighting games!!!!
some people only have that dollar
play ken or stay bad
do this input 10 times in a row without messing it up once
>Tekken X Street Fighter
Does this man know no rest?
People like different things.
They're a bunch of guys who've gotten so used to each other that they shit talk constantly to stave off the boredom.
Don't forget about Summer Lessons.
I get why he doesn't play Urien despite claiming he's his "main," but I don't understand why he plays Remy, that character is trash and he can't do anything with him except frame traps and c.HP into flash kick.
His Necro and Oro are way better but he never uses them.
i've only been going to /a/ cause I was waiting on somebody to dump the One Punch Man OST
Anime major side tourney when?
I'm by no means good but I played someone earlier and won the majority of the games. They start switching around characters then eventually I say ggs, leave the game and the guy just goes fucking apeshit in lobby chat.
Then starts spectating other games I play. Like 30 minutes later the guy is still going in lobby chat. It's always american players that act like this too.
French players are pretty cool though. They'll beat your ass and try to teach you at the same time.
>cool progressive good guy character designed by middle easterners solely to appeal to the middle eastern demographic because they have lots of money to spend and capcom wants some of dat money
Dunno what to tell you except that's just how they are in the 3s room. A bunch of guys who only play 3s and shit talk anyone not part of their circle.
He probably won't be back.
Fighting games are fun. I just wish I wasn't so bad at them!
Tekken 6 customisation REDUX!
Required shitty coop story mode
wtf.tekken.com upgraded for Tekken 7.
weekly tourneys for special skins for dat epeen.
TTT2 godlike netcode
Region based Bandai Namco Cup.
Yeah I'm dead serious about that last one.
That's about it on the top of my head, I think I made a list somewhere, but can't bother to find it.
Tekken Ball is fun so no complaints from me.
They said they don't want to just show off all of the little things in the game before release and want the players to see it for themselves on release.
im going to kill myself until the 16th
see you guys at launch
I'll play when there's a full party but I don't really enjoy 1v1 in that game. People usually just stall for convenient item drops and the match itself moves so slow, especially on certain stages that allow to be really corny and exploit the (apparently) even momentum that every character has for mobility.
Four players or teams bring the right kind of chaos, in it's current state the game is kinda dry otherwise.
do people that post like this just not play other games?
>tfw just beat stella glow
>want to play xcom 2 and fe fates while I wait for sfv
>they call come within like a weeks of each other so I'm still just waiting
At least I have uni projects to keep me company

West Coast niggas
Naruto Ninja Storm 4 comes out like a week before SFV and I didn't have shit to play all this month
I know. It's true for Ram, though. Just watch her intro cinematic in-game.
They actually made each character have very specific hand and feet models. Ram's are completely different from Bedman's.
Yeah, I guess. It's the only way to get those costumes here. For now, anyway. We don't have retail specific pre-order bonuses.
I'd like it more if it had some kind of background or something.
Why do I want to play everyone in SFV?
SF4 never gave me that feeling and I bought like 2 days after release.
Is it because SF4 looked like ass?
What is the first thing to come to your mind when you see this image?
Don't worry we'll have trailer for release date dlc soon.
>an universal tool used a lot by most characters that does the same thing on most of these
>a tool that changes according to character, way of use, what it does, what it does on the determined use, etc
that's because fadc defined the entire game instead of any character, so instead of giving characters a different playstyle it made tons of them rely on the same tool over and over.
at least fadc felt unique as a mechanic, most vskills just feel like an additional special the character has. the fact that a lot of them are barely usable while still being vital to the v-gauge building is pretty annoying
Not vital at all since you can build off other stuff, and more importantly, v-skill is a personal tool for each character and some v-triggers are downright game changing.
The game is not even out and it's already more diverse than sf4.
