I noticed while playing a friend (one who baroques all the time) that attacks while in baroque give less super meter to the person being hit than normal attacks without a baroque.

So I did a test to see

I chose zero and entered training with a ryu as my dummy. I went up and used 5a until his super meter went up to 2 (when training started the dummy had 1 meter). So it took 39 5a’s from zero to get ryu up to 2 meters. Next i tried it with baroque on. Thanks to the turbo features on the Madcatz arcade stick it was easy. I used turbo with the assist and light attack buttons. It was 212 hits from 5a before his super meter rolled up to 2. (NOTE: in order to do this test free baroque must be on)

Now with a little math we can get some percentages

39 divided by 212 = .184 (rounded to the thousands place)

multiply .184 by 100 = 18.4

subtract that from a hundred and you get 81.6

So according to my math an attacker gives around 81.6% less super meter to an opponent while in baroque.

Note the one problem I had was that the first 5a’s didnt combo together while the baroqued 5a’s did and the baroque was constantly refreshed for the comboed 5a’s. However I think its irrelevant because I tested other full combos and baroque combos. The baroque combos still gave significantly less super meter.

To everybody on the forums:

Go ahead and test it yourself and check my math for errors. I will answer any questions as well. Help is appreciated!!! :tup:

**Q&A**

The amount of red gauge an attacker has during a baroque does not effect how much super meter the opposition recieves. In simple terms, it doesnt matter if you have 10% or 50% red gauge the opponent is still gonna recieve the same amount of super meter.
