I've played street fighter 2 since it came out back in the day and this is no street fighter. button mashing will not work, maybe some characters like Noel where I've pulled out a 20hit just be hitting D, but it's not going to work all the time. You need to know what hits links into each other, and you have to know about spacing, when to jump, when to dash, just to extend your combo. This game is real deep, and you will need to take time to become very good.

When should I be using throws? In SF I used them whenever my opponent was recovering and/or kara throw situations.

lol did they really give that much power to the "D" button? I hate when they make things dyingly easy.

You know how you can safely mash throw tech in SF4?
Forget it, now and forever.
If you attempt to tech twice, prior to the opponent throwing, you are penalized and can't tech.
However, the tech window is 8 frames (or that's what people keep yelling at me) and there is a "!" indicator when you are being thrown. When throws are comboed into, you have 22 frames and a "! !" symbol to tell you to tech.
Throwing has to be deliberate in BB because of this, but as to specifics as to when? It's character dependent. Most throws are the result of landing a solid mix-up, not as a matter or course or to break turtling (the techs are too easy). This works out too, because a landed throw is an opportunity for fast and easy damage combos.

Now, Blaz Blue adds additional concepts to traditional Guilty Gear game play. While Guilty Gear focused more on guaranteed okizeme situations, where the opponent has to deal with your attacks, Blaz Blue gives you 4 ways of getting off the ground. They have varying risks, but prevent the type of knockdown -> generic block attack -> mix-up game play that is prevalent in Guilty Gear. With a strong understanding of your risks, and the rewards, you can escape okizeme situations.
what are the 4 ways of getting off the ground?

You should add: there is no negative edge.

Wait what? I know Carl and Arakune both have stuff that only activates on negative edge (Doll and Bugs). I Thought most other special moves were also negative edge triggered.

Somewhat related to the question above; I heard there's a tutorial mode for CS. If so, is it more like the challenge mode of SF4? or does it have more than just teaching you combos?

In SF the game is trash enough that in most cases your safe by just holding down back. In BlazeBlue if you want to go with a shameful and pitiful type of look, just jump around and dash across the corners like a chicken with its head cut off. I didn't know either to laugh or feel sorry.

Thanks everyone for replying. Couldn't get into the first one because I honestly was just lost. Kinda hoping the tutorial will at least give me a better grasp of things.

Whats most confusing for me coming from SF are the notations like for combos , like 5B 3C 214C dont know what the hell that means lol . Is it like the numbers on the key board? 5 being neutral?

Differences between SF and BB:
SF has a much heavier focus on footsies and tight links.
BB has a more diverse cast.
SF is more balanced.
BB favors offensive gameplay.
SF has large reversal windows.
BB has 4 different ways to get up (and each with different pros and cons)

After playing Blazblue (and SF 3rd Strike again) I think it helped me a little on SFIV
Is the difference between BlazBlue CT and CSII bigger than first SFIV and SSFIV AE?
I have only the PC version of CT and am learning the game without any Guilty Gear experience. Noel is the easiest to get into but I try to avoid spamming.
that game looks much more difficult to master than SF IV, despite the fewer characters since they are entirely different.
