Alright…this is a really big deal for me.
As much as I complain about the easy mode hit confirms and XF still lasting too long…I think the BIGGEST issue with this game is that with those factors involved 2/3 is just not enough to determine who really played better in a set. After watching curleh mustache it’s clearly evident to me any way that 3/5 can at times go by just as fast as a 2/3 of SFIV and with the way SFxT is going…I’ve seen 2/3 matches of SFxT on the regular that take LONGER than 3/5 of this game. KOF13 can really drag out 2/3 also.
Which pretty much has me believing that a 2/3 of this game is like one match of SFIV at SBO for the Japanese or something. If you account how fast things go by and how XF pretty much speeds up the match and takes a lot of the player element out of the match until it runs out. I would assume SBO (Super Battle Opera) is doing teams for this game as that’s the only way it will begin to make sense if they only do one match per player.
If I had the money I’d go out to this just to support 3/5 regardless of how well I do at the actual tournament. I think the game is much more interesting and thought out when people actually get to fight each other longer than 2 minutes. The game naturally just does not allow you to fight as long as you did in Marvel 2 due to the engine differences so I like 3/5 as the best way to get the players to interact more without changing how the game works fundamentally. Especially considering it takes up no less time per match on average than SFIV and SFxT 2/3 most surely usually takes longer.
**Anyone who’s in the area or anyone outside of the area who loves the game and wants to support a real set of this game in tournaments like Curleh Mustache FOR ALL TOURNAMENTS…get out there. **
** I want this tournament to be the precedent for all other local and major events for this game to be standard 3/5. Especially with SFxT out now it’s pretty obvious this can be done because that game is gonna take a MINUTE 2/3 any way. **
