What do you dislike about the guide?
There are only a couple of things I can think of. The first is that I would have liked a chart and graph section that compiled all of the information on crossover assists, movement options, vitality, chain combo type, X-factor multipliers, and all of the other minutiae all in one place. The other thing is that the X-factor multipliers are currently tucked away into the battle plan section, which just seems like on odd place to put them. I can’t think of any better place to put them, though.
What are your favorite parts of the guide?
The guide is extremely thorough, and any information on one particular character is incredibly easy to look up. In particular, the section on assist choices for each character is very enlightening.
What would you liked to have seen that wasn’t included?
As I said above, I would have liked there to be a charts and graphs section. I would have liked a chart that ranked all of the projectiles durability side-by-side, so I would have an easy reference to which projectiles beat what. It’s not really necessary, as I used the guides data to compile one myself, but it would be very convenient.
Do you think we used our 400 pages wisely?
For the most part, yes. The system and gameplay section was extremely thorough while still only being 24 pages long. Each character specific section contained huge amounts of information while still being very approachable to a newb like myself. The only thing I’m not sure about would be the trophies and achievements section. That is almost ten pages of info I feel could have been squeezed onto one page of normal font text, leaving 8 pages for a charts and graphs section. (I love charts).
What are your thoughts in general?
This guide is perfect. It really opened my eyes to how bad most strategy guides actually are and how excellent they could be. Many of the advanced strategies and tactics on the front page of SRK came from the guide. The guide’s approachability and its systematic breakdown of the game have made everyone, of every skill level, a better player. It is incredibly good.
Thank you for helping make it.
