    So many players are mashing on auto-combos, makes for good practice. Already got some nice oki sequences with Piccolo down.

    I wish they could be removed. I hate when a game does everything for me. How am I supposed to get better if there are autocombos everywhere ?

    I can summon Shenron consistently! There are at least 2 ways to do it. The number of 10s in your combos determines which ball you get (e.g. 10 hits for the one star ball, 20 hits for the 2 star ball, etc). Then you have to do the light attack super move. The super will get interrupted and Shenron'll show up.

    Also figured out that you get a dragon ball whenever you do a light attack auto combo.

    There's even a specific order for getting the dragon balls when you auto combo:

    1st auto combo - 4 star ball
    2nd auto combo - 2 star ball
    3rd auto combo - 5 star ball
    4th auto combo - 3 star ball
    5th auto combo - 6 star ball
    6th auto combo - 7 star ball
    7th auto combo - 1 star ball

    What does Shenron actually do?

    This lobby system is the worst I've ever seen by far. It's non stop menus and walking and shit. What happened? How did it happen?
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    you dont need to walk at all when you dont want to. you can skip direct to the areas you want and just search for matches.
    beside of that i think some people here forget which the target audience for this game is...i give you a hint..its not the usual srk forum member.

    You know you don't have to use them right? If you hold back you can mash jab without getting the autocombo or you can stop mashing.

    Forum posters have never been the target audience for any game. Ever. Yet plenty of fighting games have easy to understand online play. There is no excuse for this confusing lobby system.
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    This is gonna take some getting used to. Does NOT play how I thought based on looks. Go as far as to say this has nothing to do with Marvel.

    Of course it wouldn't. I'd expect it to play more GG or an Arcsys game.

    So heres another useful thing I noticed while trying to fiddle around with the combos. Even if you arent doing auto combo to auto combo dynamic.


    Just the regular auto combo in the air actually has more momentum and upwords movement than doing regular chains. And since it would appear in this game from the limited test that I can do that you can not do say GG things like m, l, m rinse and repeat for air combo. General idea is you do l, m to jump only anyway right? Well so basically what im getting at is...

    So lets say you already used a smash so you cant use your 2h in the air right because you wont smash anyway and wont be in range after a l, m.. Well if you do the auto combo of l, m while you combo you ARE in range. The auto combo will automatically suck you right back up to the opponent.

    So although I didnt know that auto combos actually do that, once again gasp clayton was right! for air combos instead of the normal l, m, jump l, m combo. Its actually better to do l, m(auto combo version), duck h, l, m, (auto combo version) then do whatever you want for your ender.

    Can't your delay equate to ping?

    2f delay - 20ish ping?

    The delay maxes out at 19-20. If it goes beyond that, it still gives that amount of delay, but the game just slows to a crawl.

    Also, 2 frames would be about 33.33ms ping.

    they made it so she cant have a hardknock down after her hard? Thats a game system thing period, are you doing it after a smash or just the regular one? That would be a bizarre change to change how the system works jsut for her....

    Ive seen lots of little random changes, but some are hard to say for sure. Biggest meta change I see right now is the double hit tag thing does not appear to be in anymore. Which is unfortunate because it would have made the game more interesting dynamically. But maybe its just something liek krillin can no longer do it, again with a real training mode its hard to say

    I think piccolo always had to use his special move to get a hard knockdown i believe. His heavy sends you horzontal.

    Piccolo Hellzone Grenade into DHC cancels out the projectiles before they hit, so you can't get an extension. Lame change =(

    Also at least for Adult Gohan, his assist isn't fully inv. He can get interrupted as he's coming in. I believe the inv frames start from when his feet touch the ground.

    wait they got rid of piccolos hellzone grenade stuff? Damn game not even out yet and they really are doing their best to take out a lot of the fun interesting stuff eh lol

    Just won my first set and I'm on such a high because of it. I've never had so much fun playing a fighting game in such a long time.

    thats cuz unlike mvc3 it actually looks and feels alot like mvc2.

    Testing some more stuff, although I cant tell without another person to see just how long it goes, I can easily see that this game the fireballs in the air right now do indeed count as guilty gears dust, which mean if you fireball, then start something else, you still cant block when you hit the ground untill you fullfill your recovery assuming its like guilty gear indeed there will be "unblockables" with this...

    Damn where all those haters again saying I was wrong about everything and disliking all my posts now I wonder? Playing I guess but still I gotta rub it in

    The game is designed around the autocombos fool. They give you access to different normals that are only available trough them.
    This lobby system is the worst I've ever seen by far. It's non stop menus and walking and shit. What happened? How did it happen?

    Lol wut?
    This is perhaps one of the best lobby systems that is out there for fighting games.
    Hopefuly more companies start using it for their games.

  • dialupsuckydialupsucky FINAL SHOWDOWN Joined: Posts: 2,958 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Thanks like I said if you guys actually check all my posts most the info for the game is there, dunno why people think i would lie about something like video games. Sadly some of the stuff does seem to be taken out, but even that i can not say for 100% till I get a real training mode. But a lot of what I said still works.

    Really ive been fiddling with stuff as much as I can and its gonna sound sad but its pretty hard finding instances where you should NOT auto combo in the air. You just can get more hits since your guy gets sucked in closer. Almost like you get a extra jump. Dunno why no one believed me that auto combos were gonna be really good, its almost like why ever do it manually right now. Right now all the manual combos I can find are actually not the norm. Say goku, certain instances you can actually hit a hard way above him that gives you time to then combo into a hurricane kick before they actually get slammed to the ground. But its like.. does that actually do more damage than the auto combo? Considering you get another hard hit in it anyway? And you can then combo to fireball in the first place soooooooooooooo meh~




    On another note although you cant play him in the game right now besides the tutorial part kid gohans flying kick link still works that I talked about... Sadly it seems they took out a lot of the fireball links he had. But that seems like for a lot of the cast.

    Again take that with a grain of salt though because with out a real training mode its iffy

    Not the standard edition, no. Not unless you're willing to go grey market with sites like allkeyshop and gamivo. This is one of the few times a fighting game has crazy crossover appeal, so discounted codes are out of stock everywhere.

    Probably works on all characters that are tall enough to be hit by the IAD after the fireball. Theres no real training mode right now so what do you want me to realistically say here?
