    I'm honestly not that familiar with the earlier games in the series but hasn't throw OS to beat rolling been a thing since like KOF '98?
    It's one button and a direction, not exactly rocket science even for a casual player.

    It's not that, currently there's a bug on wake-up where you retain the throw invulnerability if you do a wake-up roll, generally you give up the throw invul if you do something on wake-up but wake-up roll is breaking that and giving people an option to avoid meatys and throws.

    Yeah its dumb and figured there was an issue with it. I only played the earlier KOF games casually, but in CVS2 you were gonna get meaty thrown easy. You could only roll out of meaty buttons.

    Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    He's one of the best characters SNK designed. People complain that he's ugly, but he wouldn't be scary otherwise. He's also very charismatic, and just like every good SNK design you can tell his personality just from the way he moves and his moves are pure personality.

    He needs a bit more work fight-wise. Too many slow attacks. He has potential with a few buffs though.

    Way more well designed than Birdie or Rufus IMO. The only character I really don't like the design is Sylvie. Other than that, I find MuiMui and Love Heart generic and not well inspired.

    TSS Atma is complaining about the fireballs saying their hitbox is too big. I may be wrong, but can't most characters in the game just hop it from aside maybe Chang?

    Isn't some fireballs being hard to hop over an intentional design decision?

    Definitely intentional. But, in a lot of cases, most of the characters have jumping normals that will somehow allow them to float over the normal in the same situation if they were jumping regularly. It's a bit tricky to take advantage of when you are in the mid range vs the opponent. I am personally fond of the fact that projectiles are more useful again than they were in XIII.

    Yeah Atma says that everyone should be able to hop over air fireballs because it's unfair that only some characters can do it, but if you ask me I would like the return to 98 where no one could hop over fireballs except characters with exceedingly high hops.

    Is Atma new to this series or something...? Because, he has a tendency of saying a lot of weird shit.

    Pretty much all characters can do it if they use the proper air normal when hopping.

    I'm pretty amaze of the complaint that being made about this game. KoF is;nt my cup of tea but the complaints I'm hearing is ridiculous.

    Fire ball to hard to avoid? their like hops, hyper hops, jumps, hyper jumps, forward/back evasive roll, and good ol guarding. Not to mention character armour, invul, projectile nullifier, and command movement. I'm no KoF expert but this game seem to have plenty of options. Whats the problem?

    Atma just wants to have XIV fireballs the size of a nut.

    Has anyone asked him if he ever played older KOFs?

    Fireballs give you meter on block too with minimal chip dmg. I do understand that maybe under online lag conditions it is stupid...but you can't dump an entire playstyle because of that. Or else you become Capcom.

    If you poke your way into a lifelead getting free meter...isn't uh, bad? I do think some of the top tier zoners in the game (athena, robert, etc) will probably get increased recovery on fireballs in Oct. though.

    I don't play him and I don't like his fighting style but filling the insane maniac underground lord which in reality seems like a misunderstood genius fits him perfectly.

    He is a strange mix of Soulcalibur's Voldo and a Batman villain.

    Xanadu is a very unique design for SNK but a winner in my book.

    However, for the psychopath, I'll forever take Ryuji Yamazaki as my favorite.

    I facepalmed hard as soon as I knew the terrible duo of Chang & Choi were going to return because it looked like they had learned after XIII. At first, Xanadu looked like they were trying to outdo themselves in the lame department but all that visions and that dissertation of the nonlinearity of time he actually has a very interesting and ominous side instead of being a boring one dimensional goofball fitting of Ono era SF.

    Hope to see him in XV. He gotta throw those other two to another dimension or time paradox and get two worthy team mates.

    Dark Xanadu for final boss XV.
    As said earlier, I really dig his design. He's by no means a character I'm ever going to play, but he looks really cool and the fact that he's so obviously crazy just makes him more scary.

    I finally got around to actually buying XIV now. My right arm is still fucked so I'm forced to play on pad rather than on stick, but hey, better than nothing (I hope, I tried playing Xrd on pad and it made me want to cry =( ).

    If anyone in Europe's down for some games later today, gimme a poke.

    The Villains team was supposed to be the original plan in the first place when KOF first started development. Chang & Choi were never intended for that "Rehabilitation" nonsense.

    Kim Kaphwan

    In the first stage of the development, we wanted to add another “criminal” character to Chang and Choi’s team, which would have been the “Prisoner Team.” But due to various circumstances, we added Kim instead and made it the Korean team.

    Zarina has potential to rank very high, even without the wallbounce bug. Great mixups, high damage from a low profile, long range LK, long range in general... We'll see many more Zarina players in the future.

    I agree with this notion. I picked up Zarina around four days ago. Very good damage from 1 and 2 bar combos, even if she starts off with a cr.B (combos into her df+C from lights) or even an anti-air. I want to say that Zarina is a relatively solid character
