    Ok so I am really looking to get this game soon. But the only thing I am worried about is like the obvious mechanics online that would body me. Like when I had an Xbox and got into SF4 a little late(I was a baby noob back then) and before I met Cammy my soul character... Or whatever. I would see them charging a focus and I would sweep sooooo im guessing you know what happened after. So im just looking to get the basic advice or lingo for this game.

    Well, whenever you're new to a game you should always expect to get bodied for a while anyway. The game is pretty easy to pickup tbh, you'll be fine as long as you stick with it, learn what you can and adapt. It's still a fairly new game, and people aren't that great at the game yet in any case, so you won't have a ton of catching up to do.

    Ok thanks. On another note how should I go about choosing a character? What I did previously was just go in arcade and play who ever I thought was the coolest. Its what I did with SSFIV, found Cammy, stuck with her now I can honestly say i'm pretty amazing with her now. I thought Mitsuru looked pretty cool. (Whats better than a fencing lady who fights with fur coats on?)

    Mess around with characters until you find one you like, there aren't that many. Do the trials (for every character, but if a character isn't clicking with you there's no need to go all the way through their trials) to get a feel for characters' specials and combos as well as general system stuff like jump/superjump cancel timing (which is a lot more strict in ASW games than many others). They may not be optimal, but they are a good place to start for nearly every character. Start with whoever you want; if you want to play a cool looking character then go in the order of who looks coolest to you, haha.

    There is not really any way to pick a character except for the way you decide yourself. If that works for you, you should just do it. Depending on how you learn, it might actually be good if you decide you want to change mains now and then because you'll get a more balanced practice of fundamentals.


    PS. Australia doesn't even have a release date yet... I seriously think we are getting GG+R first

    I'd agree to just experiment with the character roster. I haven't done the trials (I prefer to learn solo with a movelist and practicing first in arcade/story, then online). The universal mechanics are definitely sometthing to learn how to best use depending on your character choice. Don't forget that the all-out-attack is an overhead for everyone, and can be followed by a short combo and launcher if it hits. Also, the 'mash X for auto combo into super' mechanic can teach you what a basic combo might look like for a character, but don't rely too heavily on it (there's so much more potential you an get from just playing around to see what works). Mitsuru is a little different in the roster as she's the only one who uses charge attacks (like E Honda or Guile) rather than quarter circles for her specials. She's got good range and some fun abilities. Fur coat swagger and the 'yoink' instant kill can't hurt either.

    No, no you were not lol SF4 forums used to be much worse too.

    Take a word of advice for this game, learn to block really well, you'll be doing it a lot. Don't be mash happy during pressure and super long strings.

    Haven't played the game in a week and got drafted into a tournament I didn't even plan to be at T.T

    EDIT: My whole team being like that and things getting quite silly, I had a complete blast the way we played at least ^_^

    Ok I can't lie I was a skeptic of this game in the beginning. But I just played my first online match after some practice and I did NOT expect to win lol. Did you ever feel like a game has just "clicked" or anything like that?
    I absolutely love this game! (Plus when Mitsuru threw the fur coat on Yukiko's KO'd body and posed like a pop star I laughed my ass off!)Definitely gonna try and put some time into this game.

    what is unsafe for every character except chie cuz it seems to me every move is safe and i cant counterattack iam just stuck blocking the whole match because everything is safe while getting mixed up and combo'd also it sucks to be chie vs pretty much everyone with a dam weapon because 90% of the time i get perfected by all these characters cuz of my range and theirs and as soon as i get near them they all do universal DP mainly yukiko eliz and yosuke and kanji when i finally get to chance to punish a DP they manage to just DP before i can even hit them and punish and i get countered. S.Labrys i dont even get to play. akihiko is the only character i have any chance of beating and how do i fight kanji i feel like this is iron tager all over again as soon as kanji knocks me down i get forever thrown for the rest of the match if i jump i get thrown or AA if i walk/run up/universal ground dash and attack i get DP'd or thrown and paralyzed followed by a throw that does like over 2000-3000 damage sry if i ask too much i just wanna learn the game and have fun not be blocking and chasing the other person the whole match like i am currently doing cuz i cant hit anyone with chie and her god awful attack range
    I love Jill <3

    I am sorry for asking the most-asked question of all. But whats the meaning of the numbers before the buttons people say? Like '5b' or '2b' or '5c'.

    Look at your keyboards number pad.

    Or just google Guilty Gear number notation

    @CrunKaintDeaDx
    Yeah I think if chie had just a little bit more attack range it would help her out a lot. Compare her 5A with Labrys or Mitsuru's, it's ridiculous lol. Her best way to start a combo is by air dashing in with J.B but even that has almost no priority over any of the other character's 2B except maybe Naoto's... and Chie's. A good player can stop a Chie from rushing them down rather easily. I still love the character though. When I do get in on people her combos are really fun to do and the damage is nice, I just wish half of them didn't require being in a corner ya know.
    Oh and the lack of any kind of any dive moves really makes match ups with keep away characters a nightmare. At least Akihiko has assault dive and his air attack aim's downward. Chie's aim's horizontally...

    I asked this in the Yosuke thread a month ago but never got a reply.

    When I see some of the better Yosuke's play, they do run up CH 5A A LOT. I just wanted to know if this is just some kind of footsy poke and they are getting lucky on the counterhit and convert the combo, or if it is actually a strategy for him/a punish (ie, if they run forward you can dash5A on reaction before they do anything)?

    why do most player rooms have xenophobic hosts that make everything private, yet never have more than 3-4 people in their 8-man room?
  • EmilEmil Joined: Posts: 4,389
    Well the xenophobia part is obvious...they're probably foreigners who would have 0 bar connections.

    On a related note, I find it really irritating when 0 bar players continuously challenge me in ranked. The strange thing is that sometimes the connection rating after you challenge someone, takes some time to appear on screen...so the opponent waits for it, and this makes sense...they want to see if the connection rating is good before they click Accept. Well, nope. They wait until it appears, it finally appears and shows a 0 connection rating and THEN they click accept. Why? Are they actually hoping that the game IS going to be unplayable before they accept?

    Atlus just had their tourney stream on level-up awhile back that offered sticks as themed custom sticks for their respective games of KoFXIII and P4A. P4A had a great turnout so the interest of the game is not dead and im starting to see good character variety being used

    Yeah a couple of people I know (one from Cali, and one from Las Vegas) went to it and said it was awesome. My only complaint is that none of the Loser's (or as they later called them "Shadow Brackets" lol) matches were streamed. Well, and that whenever I flipped on the KOFXIII stuff it was the end of one of Romance's matches as opposed to pre-beginning of them.

    This and the GG game are the most recent arc sys game so fans who prefer those kind of fighters will try to play it. Xbox player base has toned down considerably but i usually would find at least a few lobbies where i can hop on (At this point Rank is most likely dead). Don't know about Ps3 user-base since i usually use PS3 for PS3 exclusive games like Aquapazza fighter

    And then he mislabels the band as "Queens."
