    Trust me, I've been searching for low punch opportunities. I've had mixed results. The problem is that low punch sabaki. Trying to evade online is risky even though it's generally the best option against flamingo shit. Another thing is I still don't know exactly when she has to stop swinging.

    I'm thinking some solutions might character specific, but Jean and Brad have some very specific reversals/parries. I'm tempted to throw out Brad's P+K+G for free ass stomping, but he's ridiculously unsafe standing there with his knee up if it fails. Jean can't even parry or sabaki kicks harumph harumph.

    Usually, I use Brad's parry vs. wakeup kicks, but I'm finding some success using it against Jackys who like to throw out a mid kick after his "come on!" stance.

    Against flamingo, I think what I'm going to do is back off and try using long-range attacks. I'm gonna have to head in to the lab and try some stuff out.

    Those Jacky/Sarah big dumb heel drop kicks count as mid kicks. You can seriously just P+K+G on reaction and feed it to them for it. I see a lot of Sarah players just backdash and throw that shit out.

    Sarah and her Flamingo stance are a bitch. I think her cancels into Flamingo put her at an advantage.

    Managed to rank up to Sentinel again. 55% win rate.

    People: Keep playing VF5FS! TTT2 and DOA5 are coming but VF5FS must keep up. I'll be playing VF5FS and DOA5 myself.

    PS: Got demoted and promoted this weekend. The more I get demoted the more I value the rank. Raider and Barbarian - Got demoted once. Defender and Sentinel - Got demoted twice...so far

    Is anyone still playing VF5FS?!?! Nobody seems to be posting anything in the VF section anymore...

    I made it to Guardian. Now I only need to get demoted a couple of times to rank up again...

    BTW I hate Lion

    People still play, but I imagine many players/chumps have moved onto Tekken Tag 2 after getting beat up for hitting buttons all day.

    I played it non-stop for about 8 hours at the weekend on Live. The action is all in Ranked. Still see new players on the low numbers (hell, I only got it myself a few weeks back!). There's no real polite or tactful way of saying it, but if you see how large parts of SRK are really into the big modern Capcom games (SFIV, UMvC3, and SFxT) with all their flash, hype and over the top chars and moves, then it's probably inevitable that TTT2 is the next big thing for them.
    Just dipping into the VF section here, I noticed how the new Tekken has it's own massive sub-forum in bold, while we're buried right down below virtually everthing else except SkullGirls, lol
    So, the agenda is transparent, but VF fans who don't live in Japan or a few NYC/Cali arcades have never had it so good, and with the DLC outfits, there's quality replay for many months still on this.

    The truth is the number of people supposed to be in Xbox live has increased. A few months back it didn't reach 15000. Now it is almost 18000. I guess it's more difficult to find games because people have moved to Rooms/play with friends. I still play every chance I get. There is probably people from the DOA community playing until DOA5 drops. And I think the fact that DOA has VF characters will actually get more people interested in the game. It might reach 20000 at some point.

    How true is this? I'm wondering because I still hop on ranked and dig through the custom match list.

    I mean non ranked rooms. Your best bet to find people to play would be VFDC. I'm not there because I cannot access it from my work and I spend 90% of my time at work...But I lurk VFDC when at home and it's great.

    I had 6 available players with 4 bright green and 2 slightly darker conn boxes come up in a Ranked Worldwide search last night, around 11pm GMT. Most I've ever seen. Usually it's 2 or 3. Maybe, just maybe, some people out there are getting sick to death of some of the other online fighters, and are becoming more and more curious about what SEGA can offer them.
    I'm a hundred percent relaxed about DOA people wanting to step away from mashing counter and come check out the VF ethos and feel. I'm sure this guy was once a pretty big fan too:

    Bad games to senpai21

    So I came across some Assassin rank player named "senpai21" on PSN and beat up his Taka a couple of times with my Jean. I pretty much elbowed and low punched him to death because he would keep swinging at disadvantages. He gets one game on me, and sends me the message "bitch ass whore." I laughed in his figurative face about gloating for winning once, and he accuses me of "spamming" low punch. I replied: "if all you do is swing dumb shit at disadvantage then sure I'll low punch the piss out of you". He gets mad, makes a room, invites me, and beats me one goddamn time during lag where I can't block a low punch and low punch his next low punch. This is the message he sends me verbatim:

    "IF ALL YOU DO IS SWING IF ALL YOU DO IS SWING. Now get out of my room. That right there proves you got no skill. Hitting LP in desperation without really watching your opponent. I'm done with you."

    Shortly thereafter he left the room, refusing to play me again. So yeah, his e-penis's integrity is intact, and I'm really just laughing.

    I want to give GGs to G1 Tin Tin. I saw he gave me GGs in VFDC but I don't have an account there (cannot access VFDC from work). He has a great Shun and kicks my beginner Shun's ass.

    Well, I tend to remember players better if I play long sets with them. There's an oddly large contingent of Lei-Fei players I see on PSN, and they are gluttons for punishment always coming back. Jean's 66P+K makes for an easy tool for crushing sabakis.

    Next time I play you I'll try to remember to record it and see if I can give you any pointers. I am by no means a great VF player, mind you.

    On the note of Jacky payers being douches, why won't anyone with "Jacky" in their name fight me? Can't afford to lose their e-points, so they never play anyone lower ranked than themselves? Can't be bothered to waste time on us scrubs? Stupid.

    Sorry if someone here's a Jacky player, I'm sure you're all cool guys.

    I was at Sentinel a couple weeks ago, but started to lose matches. I made it all the way down to Barbarian thanks to a lot of laggy matches, and terrible connections. Some poor in game decisions on my part, but that's to be expected. I don't understand the ranking system too well but it appears that losing one game is like losing five and winning one doesn't do anything. Also, faced 5 Aoi players in a row earlier. Fuh dat shi, when I play a character like Kage.

    Ranking up in this game is hard. It took me 6 demotions (1 from Raider, 1 from Barbarian, 2 from Defender, 2 from Sentinel) to reach Guardian. I know reaching the next rank will take me a couple demotions more.

    About the ranking system: You need to fight people in your rank group. For example: 1st group is Hunter Raider Barbarian. 2nd group is Defender Sentinel Guardian

    Can't remember who said it, but some forum dingus postulated that Sega was very concerned about ranking people up too soon due to online play quirks. It would explain why demotions happen so quickly compared to promotions.
