    Meh it depends.. In Germany for instance local scenes are pretty much nonexistent. I think there was like one big tournament, when the game just launched and that's it.
    The only way for me to play this game is either online or with my bro at home. Playing the game with the same opponent gets boring after a while (he knows my habits and I know his). I'm not defending online gaming though. I can only imagine how the atmosphere is and how friendly the players are.

    I live in Germany and I kinda hate the attitude of those few german players online. They win -> everything's cool. They lose -> They send stupid messages and ask whether I know any combos.
    I love the game, therefore I will stick with online gaming as there is no alternative for me.

    So, I'm not gonna be hosting a PC Sunday session today. I'm gonna be going to a friend's house today, to try and get him into this game (it's the same friend that I mentioned before that would keep hating on the game, and he's finally giving it a chance). Wish me luck. :)
    Dang, wanted to get in on the Sunday lobby action. Ah well, I'll be on Endless sometime this afternoon anyway training my new Ken/Asuka team.

    That reminds me of the gamescom last year. There was a SF4 AE 2012 tournament and there was literally nobody who knew how to play this game. The winner was the only guy, who knew how to dragon punch lol.

    I believe it's the one that every single Law spams over and over. You'll figure it out.

    I believe it's bMP>LK>dMK.

    But you should use tekken strings as pokes, its a really bad idea, even if it is irritating for the other player to deal with. It's an amazing counter poke though.

    Law's cMK also has amazing range and easy confirms with shaolin kicks or Fist.

    I believe it's the first part of the Junkyard Kick (b.mp, lk).  I'm not terribly certain of the top of my head but I recall using that quite a lot.  Thing about that string is that you have a few options to go to from it as well.

    Law forums are probably floating around here... somewhere.  I'll see if I can dig in my post history to find it for yah. :-)

    EDIT: LMAO WOW.  It's under Brawl.  SRK PLZ  T.T

    How do you guys feel about Elena, Lars, Nina, Akuma and Julia in version 2013 so far?

    Elena - Way better. Seeing more of her.
    Lars - Better as well. Looks like he is paying off for those who stuck with him. Great normals/frame traps. Highly unsafe though.
    Nina - She seems the same to me. Some Nina players digging the change and some that I talk to say she feels different. Still hits hard to me.
    Akuma - Much improved mid-screen game. Buffs were needed IMO.
    Julia - Still as good as she was before. Still crazy good pressure. Great Julia players still thriving.

    Lars feels quite the same. He can't do the ex dynamic entry loop anymore. His jaguar kicks are now overheads. St. Mp works as a pretty good anti-air now. The damage on lightning screw is better. St. Hp is faster. I feel he combos a bit stronger now with modified combo enders.

    Silent entry k, St. Hp, H lightning screw
    Dynamic entry d+p, walk forward slightly, st. Hp silent entry~p
    (Tag) st. Hp, L silent entry, st. Hp, lightning screw.

    I personally feel he got better overall, more well rounded, better damage. Reminds me of Ryu from the first version of sfxt.
    I still have no idea what Capcom was thinking when they buffed Lars solo damage output so much, Law as well since he was always really good at creating tag setups for his team mates for massive damage.

    Alright my Bison vid is up. I think I may have to take it down and do it over because of the AE music at the start though. :-(

    yo! Sick vid man! That vid was selling me on bison the whole way through, and the ending song pretty much secured my desire to learn this character.  I think I'll pair him up with one of my other characters, and see where I go from here.  Feeling dat inner bipson.

    A lot of my thoughts in point form:
    -v2013: really good
    -SFxT forums: love this discussion, wish the character forums weren't so dead :(
    -My team: I never played Tekken so am enjoying new characters; Hwoarang & Heihachi. They are fairly easy execution wise, have mixups, crossups and can Pandora to each other after ground bounces.
    -Gem$: being a MtG player, pay-to-win is nothing new to me. The DLC instant/gradual gems are so sick IMO. Once you hit your activation condition, why gamble with having to land more moves just to get your % gain bonus? And 5 normals/8 blocked normals is not hard to land. Gems 261 and 272 from memory.
    -Players: anyone in South East Asia want to play Endless? I'm in Malaysia and suffering from a lack of opponents. Contact me :-)

    I made a new combo with Nina, while the subforums are a mess I'll just stick it here, it's pretty cool, gives you a hard kd set up, credit to DisasterFX for the command grab follow up. 

    low forward xx HK geyser, overhead, hcf roundhouse into chain grab - 391 metreless, off a low hit confirm, standing. Wtf is with this bitch...


    Also, it's possible to land a j. roundhouse off the HK geyser so you can do stuff like j. roundhouse, cr. fierce xx hk geyser, cr. fierce xx hk geyser, j. roundhouse though I haven't really found a use for that yet.

    He is not as hard as them, He feels a little awkward at first but once you break it down he is not about crazy wavedash motions or 1 frame God fists....Anyone with average execution can play him....im still trying to learn his ranges...so you can confirm into his damage.

    His low forward is pretty good! :)

    I'm sticking with Elena/Dudley for now, but there's like 6 or so other characters I love and would probably do a team with.

    Nina just does damage, that's the way I see it. She is a strong rushdown character with effective footsie tools, a command dash, and a great overhead. A typical Tekken character, but really good at the things she's good at and bad on defense. Oh, and her anti-air is stupid good.

    I am now trying to play Ken X Asuka, in version 1.06 (PC) no less. I understand this team is top tier in 2013? :P Any advice from any Asuka/Ken players?

    Yea. I hear ya. I got 8 characters I'm trying to get good at right now and I'm still eye-balling Kazuya... Though the more I use him, the less appealing Guy seems. He seems so dry after a while.

    That's true. I get kicked out of german lobbies when I win and almost every hatemail I got was from german players. And I am german!
    And no, I don't play Hugo in endless lobbies.

    Her defense isn't that bad...

    She has strong footsie tools which is half the battle, her wakeup isn't phenomenal but she has a really solid CADC backdash, a strong anti - air and can command dash in through fireball pressure. 

    I'd hardly say her defense is some of the worst in the game.

    I'd hardly say her defense is some of the worst in the game. 

    She can command dash through full screen fireballs or bad fireballs. It'll get her hit for any character with a good one.

    Her backdash is stuff is good, but not amazing, and unlike other characters it puts her out if position.

    Her AA is very good, but nowhere near as infallible as law or kens.

    Her wake up is embarrassing. Only strong than the likes of vega, and her AC is one of the worst in the game.

    Her footsie tools are very strong, better than most of the cast, but can't quite hold up to some of the real monsters with her sMK nerf. What sets her apart is her damage.

    Also, Kaz has the best cMK for my money.

    In versus mode, when it asks you to pick your gem unit, go left to your 1st gem set; it should have a special gem ID thing there where you can do the custom gem set there.

    I agree with all these points.

    I will say even with the nerf st.mk is still a hella good move especially just as a lockdown tool from certain ranges. It could be better but I do like it, wish it aa'd at least how it looks like it should.

    Also I would just like to say OMG WHY IS HER Alpha coutner soooo bad. Its the worst
    ugh.

    Actually, lets talk alpha counters a bit:

    Best:
    Alisa
    Chun
    Dudley


    Worst:
    Marduk
    Nina
    Xiaoyu
    Raven

    I'm sure I'm fioferting some. But the best are both fast and set up the characters to enforce their game plans.

    The bad ones don't even work.

    Alisa
    Chun
    Dudley


    Worst:
    Marduk
    Nina
    Xiaoyu
    Raven

    I'm sure I'm fioferting some. But the best are both fast and set up the characters to enforce their game plans.

    The bad ones don't even work.
    Bryan's Alpha counter wall bounces lol, or at least it did pre - 2013. You definitely shouldn't forget that one.

    Ryu's Alpha is awesome as well, it gives him a full screen to work with, decent damage and invulnerability.

    Nina's c.mk has more reach than Guile's Knuckle Punch. It's ridiculous. I swear, she can outreach Dhalsim lol. 100 bucks that she has the longest (cancelable) c.mk of the cast.
    Her low forward is pretty godlike, and I proved earlier up the page, you can get 391 damage off her low forward without burning a bar. 

    Not sure about longest cancelable, it's definitely not the longest, Guile's reaches further, but it's definitely Ryu level for a cancellable low forward.
