Hello, I just discovered this site a few days ago and it’s a great source of information that I wish I had found earlier.
One thing that has always confused me is how player and battle points work. I’m a pretty poor to mediocre player yet my Bison is somehow ranked number 170 or so in the world, which to me doesn’t sound right. After a couple of months of playing Bison hard core I still can’t manage to link short kick combos, I have no idea how to make use of the focus attack, I jump way too much…
Of course occasionally when I play ranked or endless matches I run into what I assume are ‘alts’ who have 0 or 1000 BP but which are clearly much better than I am and they mess me up pretty bad… seems like it kind of blows the idea of points out of the water…
Question 1: Do points matter at all? Do they measure anything of value or is it like points in arcade mode where it’s totally academic.
Question 2: When you look at the players’ fight cards in replay mode, it shows a summary of each players’ points, and then it lists a ‘total’ column which mathematically I can’t derive from the listed points. Can someone explain what ‘total points’ are?
Question 3. Is it possible to ‘game’ the points system? As I said I am a very poor-mediocre Bison yet I have managed to obtain a 3000 PP rating (was as high as 3500) and 11000 BP rating. However, Bison is the only character I play. Is it easier for me to have more points because I stick to one character while others lose points because they play multiple characters?
Thanks for your responses.
