  • Re: Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- one of life's gilty pleasures

    I really don't see what's so bad about Baiken. I was thinking about it today and I'll concede that Answer maybe needed more help than he got (maybe he will get more in the next test; I'm still not convinced he's bad tbh), but I'm not convinced about Baiken.

    Tatami still seems like the giant wall of "fuck you" that its always been (it also has the same startup as in previous games). Her mixup is solid (poke/throw, or when she has meter high low; possibly even without meter now ostensibly). Looking at her now, she's honestly one of the most well-rounded characters in the game. The thing people need to come to grips with is that her old GC system is never coming back (which is just as well because it was MISERABLE to fight against). I do think that since she doesn't have the GC anymore, it was unfair for her to have such low health, but this was addressed in the patch. I think if people forget about the past and focus on playing the new Baiken they may find a lot of these QOL fixes treat her well.

    I also don't think that Chipp combo will work because of the way alpha functions now. Probably he will either need to do a baby combo into j.D or I saw some people doing alpha, f.S juggle into j.P j.D kd. It leaves them midscreen, but he at least gets some oki off it. It's more than fair because his corner loop was just slightly lower on the "BS Scale" than El/Jo unblockable loops from previous games.

    Slash had characters that were legitimately unplayable. That's just about the beginning and end of the discussion of Slash being balanced. It simply wasn't. It has the illusion of being balanced because Sol and Ky, the two shotos of the franchise, were top tier, and the game was sandwiched between Reload, where Eddie had his own tier, and AC, which had triple unblockable Eddie and forward EXEbeast Testament. Reload and AC may have had sillier stuff at the top, but Slash's tier spread is inexcusable for a competitive game.

    Yeah, theres def some truth to that, but it's not just that other games had sillier stuff at the top. To me it's also that we got to see some new characters get a chance in the spotlight. I think most people would agree that Millia, Zato, and Slayer have dominated GG for much of its existence, so imo Slash was a nice change of pace from that

    Also, Razor, people in the Sincord are saying the stuff he got is pretty legit. I don't remember many specifics, but I heard ending in 5H now gives much better oki among some other things. Sounds like he is buffed

    Also, Slash is Trash

    Fixed that for you, Slash is probably the worst version of GG that has existed.

    It def isn't. You could make the argument that it's the most balanced GG game to date

    Are you fucking stupid?
    Really the most balanced?
    The game that goes from S++++++ to F++++++?
    The game where the diferences on tier placement are so wide were an B character didnt have too much options to defeat an A character?

    The tier list prob went from A to D (which is def wider than Xrd, but no wider than some of the other old GG games). The good thing about Slash (and Reload too) though was they started to do really interesting things with the characters (it was actually starting to become a legit balanced FG) and we for once weren't doomed to the usual top 3 of Millia, Eddie, and Slayer.

    Adapt or die. Don't be one of those babies that quits the game because their character got nerfed. If you want to only play top tier just pick a new top tier.

    This is fucking hilarious coming from you. Not long ago, you were in here just losing your shit over Raven and Chipp. Instead of adapting yourself, you just cried for nerfing.

    They needed to be changed and ASW agreed. Don't be mad you're running out of incredibly strong + incredibly easy to use characters to carry you. You still have time to jump ship to Ky, his "nerfs" aren't bad at all
