All right…if Alpha Anthology and Master Akuma can do it why can’t we???
Post up all XI Arranged mode stuff here…
I will fill in stuff from the XI official thread so we can keep things going etc.
Changes for some middle-low tier characters:
Griffon’s s.A has been slowed down to mediocreness while his c.A is now Hugo speed, at least 3/4x faster than before. I’m seeing c.A (or 2), hcb+A being a major part of his game now. No other specials will combo of the c.A though.
Kensou can (obviously) no longer f+B in his juggles. A fireball is a lot faster now and that is going to hurt him. (air) qcb+P, c.Ax2 isn’t as friendly anymore, one c.A is easy enough.
Hayate’s c.A looks a bit slower. No big loss.
His jumping has been totally overhauled. He jumps lower, has worse acceleration getting off the ground and doesn’t float as long. These are all good things, being able to do d+A a lot closer to the ground is great. Will allow for AGGRESSIVE air boomerangs as well.
You can now d+P during backhop. Along with the better hop d+P’s (A in particular) this give him a whole new avenue. No huge damage, but wakeup overheads at last.
c.D -> LDM no longer works (even when used as a juggle filler and not as a trip->catch.) Anything into c.D no longer chains. Normals are all the same speed, hit stun is just a lot less on normals (c.B, s.D looks character specific as well now. Stick to c.B, s.C)
Low LDM is now a juggle starter!!! Into knee/boomerang or even into high LDM. And yes you can waste 5 levels and both stocks in one combo (spaced just a bit away from the wall.)
His walk speed seems ever so slightly faster as well. He also suffer from the same lower hitstun on jump-in attacks as everyone. Crossup air qcb+k remains untouched and still allows lights or close s.C to combo after"
"Arrange Mode Makes KOFXI into KOF2002
The new KOFXI “feel” is why I started to play this at all. Arrange mode makes it feel like my controls are dipped in shit.
Although, I can understand why “true” SNK’ers like arrange, so whatever.
It’s not like a real tournament is going to be held for this game in the US (unless the next texas showdown still gives it support- albeit, it will be on arcade), so play whatever your crowd thinks is more fun"
"Arrange Mode is for people who HATE the top-tiers of KOFXI or liked KOF98/2003’s combo system.
How is it better when you can’t poke as easily/fast as you could before? I seriously don’t understand that, but like I say about I guess people really do hate Gato/Kula/Duck. Or must’ve been owned by them ALOT to make them say that Arrange Mode>Arcade Mode"
Thanks to the members of the XI thread for their information.
