    Only memory I have of this game is that I got into it way too late.

    Still, it should make for decent practice on my Hori RAP4...

    Yea, but they have had success with crowd funding pots bonuses to get people to still travel and compete. The current one for Teespring isn't bad either, I think I might cop cuz the Tee is dope.

    If this was 2007 Marvel's numbers would still be great. I think Marvel 2 was already starting to get only barely above 100 people at Evo around that time.

    It won't really die since it's America's anime game and nothing else is quite as crazy as Marvel. It has a charm and identity that people will hold onto until the next one.

    mvc2 seemed like it was the epitome of hype till it evolved into only touching 6 characters.
    And that's why I do not believe tier lists. The worst character ended up being the one everybody used in evo.

    Sentinel used to be below SHUMA ffs lol

    Tier lists change, they're never supposed to be seen as absolute. They only reflect how powerful a character is according to the current understanding of said character's abilities, because what else could you judge it on? The newer the game is, the more inaccurate it will be.
    Maybe Doopliss isn't kicking ass, but he's taking names.

    This might belong in another thread. But SFV will need to prove it can replace USFIV before its phased out of major Tournaments.

    As of 1/9 USFIV is one of the 2016 tournament main games for:
    -Hypespotting - Regional
    -CannesWinterClash - Regional
    -Final Round - Premier
    -Westcoast Warzone - Regional
    -CEO - Premier

    The question remains to be seen. Is it before or after UMVC3 in terms of stream time.

    That was before stuff like fast fly was discovered and he suddenly became the fastest character in the game.

    To quote fanatiq.

    Sentinel:
    Sentinels fast fly was unintentional. 8 of the 56 characters have flight mode, but Sentinel is the only person who can cancel his flight animation. Hes not the only one who can solo combo utilizing flight mode, but the others who can do this just so happen to have shorter flight animations than sentinel. This allows sentinel to dominate mid air confrontation and zone really well due to canceling recovery time on attacks via fly, unfly and refly. This makes a perfect battle with sentinel and magneto, as magnetos exploitations allow him to close space effectively, while sentinels exploitations allow him to box Magneto out, and space out very effectively, a perfect tug of war. This wasnt insight on the part of the developers but more happenstance. These things were never discovered and made it into the final build of the game and much to the developers surprise it was exactly what the game needed.

    Sentinel also avoids most damage buffer. The marvel engine works so that after a delayed hyper combo (dhc) damage buffer is reset completely except all damage done by the hyper move is cut by 30%. Sentinel has the strongest pragmatic combos in the game, and a super that upon dhc hits only about 4-5 times and allows him to combo afterwards with minimal buffered damage. This is how Storm and Sentinel delayed hyper combos can do 100% life. Of course this wasnt intentional. Everything was put in place in the engine to prevent one touch kills. The damage buffers, super buffers on dhcs, the complete recovery dizziness, it is all for the sake of preventing one touch kills.

    I do not know why I'm not fond of sentinel when I like painwheel.
    All I know is that I just can't when it comes to mvc sentinels.

    I do not know the terms for such but I immediately feel the sour when sentinel involved.

    Goodbye SF4. You got me into the wider fighting game community and led me to ST and third strike. You were decent for a time but you don't have the staying power of the classics.

    Please tell me that these tears in their eyes and mashed uppercut kind of niggas know they don't have to stop playing just because a new game came out.

    The game is on the same console as the next release. You don't have to say farewell to shit.

    Try being an ST player.

    You can't.

    There ain't no port.

    I've put more hours into this game than anything else. I really never expected the SF4 series to become so much a part of my normal everyday life. This is the end of an era. A really good era!

    There is so much I hate about this game that I'd rather not post a novel on here. TL;DR: Game is shit and isn't very rewarding. It also has the distinction of being the only fighting game that get's me incredibly salty EVEN WHEN I'M CONSISTENTLY WINNING. An amazing accomplishment, to be honest.

    I'm getting a PC. I'm playing SFV. I've tried so hard to like USF4. I just can't. I'm inclined to like it, because in concept it's awesome! 44 characters, everyone gets a shot at awesome combos, you get two meters filled in different ways creating an interesting meta, a universal attack with a multitude of purposes, it sounds great. Then you go online.

    Lol never thought K-Brad was so passionate about the game. I mean he's not particularly impressing or anything.
  • EasilynEasilyn Inactive. Joined: Posts: 1,405
    Kbrad should stop bitching. If you could tolerate, and LEARN HOW TO USE DECAPRE OF ALL PEOPLE then you get a golden sticker and automatically can just breeze through any fighting game :(
    How can you master a character like that and complain that 5 is too easy?

    KBrad afraid he gon become the washed up veterans of SF4. Like John Choi and Afrocole with ST, or 5Star and DevilJin01 in 3S.

    Whoa! @DevilJin01 , I had no idea you were at Evo before!

    As soon as I hit 666 Hours in steam I will stop playing this shit game. Good fucking riddance. Worst SF game to date.

    1st that's more than a week of just playing this game straight. way too much for a game you don't enjoy.

    2nd i played sf the movie the game in the arcade when it came out. so let's calm down on the 'worst street fighter ever' talk.
    Either way, Im most gratefull to SF4 to reignite the FGC, even when the 09ers was a terrible time to be in the forums BUT again... The fire is ON.

    it can be argued that the forums never recovered. the high level discussion never returned en masse. there is more action in closing 'what stick should i buy' threads in the newbie forum than any character forum and it doesn't seem like those days are ever coming back.

    there are some things that i like about the 4 series. for me it felt like the more i learned about it, the less i liked it. which is the opposite learning curve that i felt for a3, st, mvc2 and cvs2. the endless pandering to the lower levels of play and thought left the game open to exploits and strategies that don't resemble the street fighter that i know and love. so while i am happy to see something new come, i am also interested to see what comes of the game when we are not so focused on it.
    "i hit every combo/glitch there ever was the first time i try it, and usually the first time i try doing it after i wake up....but then i don't get it again all day at least.

    ...its like i have real life super meters... " -skisonic

    The game will still be around and lots of people will still play it. Just look at ST and 3S as examples for it being done before. No spotlight for sure, but still having a presence and a following.

    Opinions are so polarized. The last games I played hard were Sf2, ssf2 and Snk's samurai shodown (all 5) and last blade. I came back 15 years later to play USF4 and the game seems very good to me.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's the problem with USF4?

    I've heard people complaining about focus, fadc, 1 frame, os and too many chars (!?). Is that it?
