    Well I usualy post this stuff with another account, but I'm to lazy to Log around:

    SCRUB: A modern derogatory and inflammatory term most often used to describe people who disagree with core game mechanics, popular game play, player exploits and inadequate or Unbalanced game design. Antonym: Zealot. The term began its use for Street Fighter during the 1980's arcades around the time that SF2WW and SF2CE were becoming more and more popular, to refer to the newcomers to the game who didn't understand or know the existing playerbase throughout a region, and thus broke all of the in-game sportsmanship and respect etiquette that existed as a code amongst the hardcore, long-time player community. They most often perceived it as just another video game they happened to stumble upon and they'll do whatever they can to win, unaccountable to the existing original playerbase. They'd most often end up playing alone, and were friendless to begin with.

    I've been playing Dark Souls 3 PvP for the past week, and after reading these scrubquotes nothing holds a candle to how scrubby this community is. It's weird, a franchise that attracts all the hardcore players for PvE ends up having the scrubbiest PvP player base.

    Scrubbery is scrubbery regardless of game or genre.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Yeah, like @Muttonman said, the OP was just talking about the aesthetics, not really fighting game mechanics, so not really a scrubquote

    But I'll add this: juggling always bothered me in fighting games. Except for a few bugs in specific versions, Street Fighter never had them before ST and it was a better game because of that absence

    Call me a purist or grumpy old man, but the first time I saw a juggle in ST (in a dark arcade somewhere in the 90s) I was baffled and a little disgusted. That looked so stupid, like Sagat's Tiger Uppercut hitting multiple times all the way up just because...

    It didn't help that I used Blanka during most of SFIV's lifespan, a character with little to no juggles during most of that game's iterations (EX Horiball xx FADC was always a stupid use of meter anyways)

    I gotta say, the most common trait of scrubs have to be their universal hatred of zoning.

    Is actually, an universal hatred torwards anything that beats them and they don't have an answer to it.
    Remove zoning, and they will be complaining about people spamming the same combo, spamming throws, etc, etc.

    Just looks at the SFV section and their hilarious ideas on how to improve SFV or why x or y char is op.

    I've met a guy that I could literally put him on the corner and tick throw/ frame trap for days and he wouldn't say a thing, but hitting him with 3 consecutive projectiles would make him drop the controller without fail.

    Can we all agree that NRS really knows how to make zoning look real, real bad?

    Even I felt disgusted watching some DSP or LTG "highlights" playing MK9, MKX or Injustice 1... I mean, you have characters literally shooting guns at fullscreen and causing considerable chipdamage

    And I just saw some Injustice 2 gameplay and shit looks real bad... I'm sure there are ways to fight that kinda stuff, but from an outsider perspective that just looks bad and makes me want to stay as far away from that game as I can, so I can't fault a casual player for hating Deadshot firing away from fullscreen

    BTW: This is not a complain of zoning as a valid fighting style or the competitiveness aspect of NRS games (I really don't care how competitive those games are), it's just an aesthetic observation and my personal opinion on the matter. That kind of game (or gameplay, I should say) just don't appeal to me and a lot of potential players, scrubs or not, don't like it either

    I don't think those games would lose much by replacing those quick gun shots by more traditional, Street Fighter style, slow-moving fireballs or something like Wesker's gunshots (if you want a more MVC-style of gameplay, wich doesn't seem to be the case with Injustice)

  • d3vd3v Coughing DAT PINK SPIT Joined: Posts: 36,059 mod
    NRS zoning looks bad because it really only works at full screen, but works really well at that range. Since you can't link, you can't have traditional mid range footsies where you're fishing for crouching mediums to fireball and stuff like that.

    I don't know if NRS makes zoning look bad.
    Zoning in Capcom games was never fun to do or watch, while in my years in P4A and KoF98 is fell kinda in love with it.
    Rugal and Athena are two of my most played characters in KoF and I love Whip, whos basicly Dhalsim on steroids.
    Hitting a fireball into a full juggle in P4A was always such a great feeling.
    In SF it's either anti-air or the opponent jumps into the fireball and gets knocked down, it kinda lacks the exitemeant and fun to do. But thats just me.

    I don't know much about NRS games, so this is an honest question:

    Since those full screen gun shots don't seem to have a big role in competitive play, how necessary are they to those games? Why every single NRS game of late (at least ever since MK9, I think) seems to have them?

    To me (an outsider) it just looks bad and annoying to watch

    Starts at 1:10:




    Floe always delivers:



    (and players just have to wait for the inevitable flood of constant patches and fixes, NRS at its "finest" once again)

    Full screen stuff tends to die off after the first couple of patches. And most competitive players figure out how to get in and stay in quickly (unless it's against SonicFox).

    As for why gunshots (and other fast, full screen options)? I figure it's because the game's lack projectile clashes so zoning vs zoning isn't as interesting. What gunshots give is a way to hit the opponent and stop their own projectile from coming out.
