    s1 chars are animated well on the whole, yes, but not all of them (orchid has some weird stuff)
    the early s2 chars are tough times a bit, but IG hit their stride later in the season and most of the characters after and including riptor animate really well
    s3 seems fine to me animation-wise so far

    as far as character design goes, idk, there'll always be hit and miss. i don't think sadira (a s1 character) is particularly notable as far as design goes, but i like aganos and stuff from s2. kim's aesthetic design isn't that hot in s3, but tusk, arbiter and rash are solid.

    oh well, hate what you want, like what you want. the game itself is fun, and every game will have at least some weird character designs you don't like.

    i really did just get sucked into this debate, didn't i... i was doing so well too

    Yeah I wanted to be close to DT but not directly in it, mission seemed pretty perfect. I'll hear back from them later today to confirm it all~


    I'm realizing now that i'm too old to drink all afternoon and night then wake up at 5am to go to work, holy hangover batman. At least i can get drunk tonight and not have to worry about waking up early lol

    I'm pretty excited to bust out my shitty r mika with the boys

    Rash and Arbiter are from different games though.

    Legend of Dragoon may have done some shit poorly... But dat boss theme doe!



    It breaks my heart that he was going to be the next DLC character for PSAS before the game's support got canned ;)

    And FGC got a shout out on Extra Credits again... definitely think local multiplayer being the norm is why it's the best gaming community

    MOAR video spam! Game is still ugly (IMO the only reason people say otherwise is because they released that initial trailer which looked even more horrible, and by comparison to that this looks like Rembrant...clever marketing)

    But the sand guy looks really bitching!

    Jamie, you booked up for EVO yet?
    I just sold 2 of the 3 floor seats I gotta get rid of to GamerBee... If you want the last one lemme know!

    Otherwise I'll have to resort to pawning it on r/kappa or something *shudder*

    alex notes:

    basically to play ideally you should be a robot that forces meaty lariat into a raw 50/50 powerbomb or s.mp mixup as much as humanly possible.
    most setups are attempts to make it as braindead as possible (the button that's meaty on quickrise becomes a timing whiff for normal rise).


    - - - - - -

    frametraps (tested on chun cr. jab [3f]):

    = jumping short [deep]-> immedaite s.mp (counterhit) -> whatever
    = jumping strong [deep] -> immediate fwd+hp (crush counter) -> df.hp -> knee (ex knee midscreen), mixup on block
    = cr.jab, s.jab
    = cr. jab, cr.jab
    = s.strong, s.jab
    = fwd+hp, s.strong (xx mp chop on counterhit, or confirm link into super)
    = s.hp xx hk slash elbow (trades, immediately do knee to juggle, ex knee midscreen)

    note: after cr.lk, any button loses. cr.lk sucks.
    note: in corner, doing walk back -> stand hp xx heavy elbow combos on counterhit (shimmy!) and leads into cr.hp -> knee into oki, gross


    oki

    after aa knee
    [quickrise]
    = dash stand mp (meaty)
    = dash hp powerbomb (meaty)
    [normal rise]
    = dash whiff s.mp, whiff s.mk, fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)

    after forward throw
    [quickrise]
    = stand hk (meaty), df.hp -> knee on crush counter
    = immediate lk slash elbow (meaty), combos into cr.mp on counterhit (can v-trigger -> sweep)
    [normal rise]
    = stand hk, whiff cr.lp, immediate fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)
    = immediate lk slash elbow, whiff s.mp, immediate fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)

    after powerbomb (all including ex) (same as forward throw, but powerbomb leaves you very slightly further away so you need to use df.hp to juggle after crush counter lariat)
    [quickrise]
    = stand hk (meaty), df.hp -> knee on crush counter
    = immediate lk slash elbow (meaty), combos into cr.mp on counterhit
    [normal rise]
    = stand hk, whiff cr.lp, immediate fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)
    = immediate lk slash elbow, whiff s.mp, immediate fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)

    after ex flash chop
    [quickrise]
    = dash, slightly delay fwd+hp (crush counter) -> df.hp -> knee (ex knee midscreen), mixup on block
    = dash, slightly delay cr.mk (xx vtrigger -> fierce xx etc.) [low]
    = immediate mp stungun (hold away) [throw] [safe on delay rise, but alex at frame disadvantage]
    = very slightly delayed mp stomp [high]
    = corner only: immediate whiff cr.lp, immediate fwd+mp overhead (meaty) [high]
    [normal rise]
    = dash, do fwd+hp three times (third one is meaty) (have to delay slightly)
    = very slightly delayed mp stomp, whiff c.mk, immediate fwd+hp (meaty)

    after mk, hk stomp (lk stomp has longer knockdown?)
    [forces hard knockdown!]
    = immediately whiff fwd+hp, immediate second fwd+hp (meaty crush counter)
    = immediately whiff cr.hk, meaty hp power bomb
    = hold up, empty jump ('safe jumps' ex sbk), press a button and you get hit

    Is it just me, or was that really poorly played by both of them? Not impressed at all, especially for their rank.

    Rebelo is from Ontario right? We used to play all the time in Injustice. Solid GL. I wonder how shitty their connection is. Looks like lots of getting away with crap because online.

    rebelo lives in montreal from what i know

    he plays a lot of ki, got 3rd place at the world cup and has a particularly aggressive/buttons-y/high risk high reward style of play in every game

    He's from Toronto and his connection is the equivalent of a potato.
  • InfilInfil una catástrofe con una pelota de beisbol Joined: Posts: 8,629
    his twitter says he lives in mississauga, so yeah, i guess it's TO area

    and yeah a lot of people talk about rebelo's connection being kinda bad even in ki, so i imagine florida to toronto using sfv's netcode is not gonna be all that great

    cool, if you go to the character select screen and your cursor defaults to alex, and then you change characters, you will play the version 1.01 patch of whatever character you changed to. this means 3f prejump and whatever other changes to hitboxes and stuff.

    if your cursor does NOT default to alex, then changing characters picks the correct 1.02 version

    applies to both online and offline play

    this basically means if you ever pick alex, ever, and you go back to character select, you have to go back to the main menu to clear the bug, or else pick another character, go into the match (with v 1.01), then go back to character select to clear the bug. if you play in a battle lounge online with character select turned on, and your favorite character in "battle settings" is alex, then your cursor defaults to him and you will always pick a version 1.01 character no matter what

    it has no doubt affected tournaments already and i guess they will have to ban alex until they fix it

    Dude no wonder I was getting old option selects to work. I had Alex as my default character then I'd switch to cammy and she still had her old OSes
