    So, since we're only 50,000 away form the 3rd character and we have but 4 days left to get them...

    It's obviously not going to happen unless womanizing playboy philanthropist Bruce Wayne swoops by and delivers a charitable donation to the campaign.

    Are the devs just gonna say "fuck it, might as well" and try to make the 3rd character anyway, or are they just going to say "Oh well, too bad"?

    I hope they just try to do another fundraiser or something to get that little bit left instead of jacking it off on other things.

    I'm worried with how slow it's been, and if certain groups will demand refunds if certain goals look unlikely. I don't want Hat flashbacks.
    I thought the new Saint and Patron slots would have cleaned up the rest of the cash to 600k by now

    The amount of traffic we've been getting over the past day or so compounded with the previous issues has completely brought our server to its knees. Basically, we have no option but to look for a new server package that is more suited to the site (which has grown much faster than we expected).

    Hmm, is there a last minute donation drive or fundraising effort going on? Suddenly under 24 hours somewhere around 50k has been raised I believe. At this rate the Mane6 team should be able to get the engine, and perhaps we might be able to get the 2nd mystery character funded with a little luck

    Oh my god, they're talking about making Robo-Fortune a full fledged character as well if they can make it to 725k...

    Doesnt a NESICA have to be connected to a network or something? I wouldnt know because Ive never been to the land of the rising sun

    But anyway. Something as large as an arcade cabinet? Import? From Japan?

    Does this mean that Marie's power level is 3000.3333333, so if she becomes 300%, her power level increases to 9000.999999 or, if rounded up, 9001, aka OVER 9000!?

    whenever Marie gets to be playable when skullgirls 2 comes out in 2017 or whatever, DBZ Marie should be an alternate color.

    I've updated the page with a little more info, but essentially the server got wiped. We're running around trying to find a backup of the forum stuff so that we don't have to restart everything from scratch.

    EDIT: And as for an ETA I'm tempted to say "two weeks" but hopefully it shouldn't be more than a few days before we know if we have a backup or not, and then we'll proceed appropriately.

    Even though "Two weeks" is in fact a joke and an SG meme, you probably actually should say that. Reason being is that it basically means "Nobody knows for a fact how long this will take". This way people stop asking and we dont get hurt internet feelings if it isnt back up when you predicted.

    Copy/Paste

    I don't know about Skullgirls. I'm unsure if I'm just not digging the mechanics or I can't find a character that I like. Right now I'm rocking SoloBella and getting mixed results. I love Grapplers but I don't know with her. I'm just not totally syncing with her. Same with the other characters and I'm not sure what it is. Something is not clicking. Maybe my opinion will change when Big Band and Beowulf appear? I don't know.

    The one thing I don't like about hyper aggressive Marvel-styled games is that I feel like they reward mashing. People just throw shit out there so long as it's not horribly unsafe. It reminds me of playing Brazilian or generally Hispanic dudes on GGPO and Supercade in KOF. They just don't give a fuck if they're not trolling you. They will continue to short hop and just go in no matter how many times you punish it. Because they know all it takes is one good combo and they got you. They don't give a fuck if you punish them.

    Maybe Cerebella's footsies just suck? I don't know. I'm hoping when Big Band and Beowulf appear I will find that synergy and maybe the game will make sense to me but I don't know.

    And don't call me a hater. I'm happy to support a good fighter on PC and I bought it on PSN when it first came out. The game didn't make sense to me and I couldn't find character synergy back then either.

    I don't really see how this is different from any other game? Ryu in SF4 "just throws 'walkup c.MK xx Fireball' out there".
    The difference is just that in SG the 'same move' is an IAD j.HP which moves three times as fast and leads to actual damage.
    You have to react faster, you have to be weary at more distances, mistakes get punished harder..
    .. and yeah, if you have no idea what's going on it may seem random - but it's really the same Footsies, just sped up.

    Bella's Footsies are really good. Run-Stop360/Butt/Feint, j.MP, j.HK, 6HP, j.HP Gliding and H.LnL .. what are you asking for on a Grappler?

    If you want a more slow-paced character with a very distinct Neutral game, try Painwheel.
    Hatred Guard is a fundamental part of her game now, and her Throw is such a core element to her playstyle that she may as well count as a grappler :P
    Why.
  • LouiscipherLouiscipher Joined: Posts: 8,177
    Eh, I'm kinda' digging Valentine but IDK. I'm just not feeling it right now. I hate long fucking combos. I hate the derpyness of mashing and getting rewarded for it. I'm sorry but a guy hitting buttons at midscreen is not a guy with a plan, that's someone guessing.

    And Bella's jHP sucks dick. It's an awful jump in. It whiffs on way too many dudes and if you hold it for an extra half second you get that glide...

    Bell's j.hp is a good once you get used to avoiding the glide

    For jump ins I use j.mp(which is also a great air to air move), j.hk, and j.lk. Really her air normals are second only to parasoul. It can be super hard using her solo because there are certain matches that suck for her solo. You might want to use an assist more often with her

    Valentine has the easiest combos in the game, but the most important thing for her game is air movement. Her cmd throw is by far the slowest move in the game so you can ignore it.
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    Bella's j.HP is an awesome move. You need to space it properly, but that doesn't make it any less good.
