Wow. Alot of people don’t like this game huh?
Anyway, my friend and I play this game pretty religously. We are big fans of the series and we both can’t wait for Project Psychic to com out for the PS3.
Well, might as well start contributing to the thread. Some things in your possible tier list are really good and some things just make no sense imo. Not bashing just giving my thoughts.
Well, for one thing why is there no high tier? Well here is my take on the tier list.
Edit: This is the list my friend and I came up with after a little deliberation and debate. The rankings are in order and should be read from left to right.
Top- Wong, Emilio (Both are tied for the rank of number one)
Lower Top- Burn, Kieth
High- Setsuna, Genshin
Middle- Might, Gudeath, Gates, Patty, Regina
Ok let me explain my tier placings a little bit. Wong is just a monster. To be blunt, he’s just a flat out cheater. He has incredible defensive capabilites along with awesome mindgame potential. To sum up Wong in a sentence. Teleporting is gay. He can combo his golden sword straight into another one if the first caused a wall bounce then do the second part of the move where he calles all the smaller swords to impale his opponent. Yes the combo is plausible in a real match. It’s all about mindgames with Wong and he can pull it off. If a Wong player nails this combo it can take nearly half your life bar.
His long range strong attack is another great mindgame tool. Throw it in another direction then cause it to reappear behind your opponent. A very nice trick. You can’t spam it, but it will keep them guessing. His split image teleport is great when you want to dodge techniques, but not suffer from barrier hit stun. He can also buffer his psychic attacks from his teleports, so its possible to throw out a golden sword almost immediately after you teleport.
He also has a teleport that he can do after he gets knocked back. He can do this from anything. Even a throw! So you could throw him, he telpeorts instead of doing a retreat barrier and then he combos you. Or he could just mindgame you and and dash away. When you try to rush him or dash away he sticks a golden sword down your throat. By the way, that sword does great damge and has fairly quick start up time. I’m pretty sure it’s safe on block too, meaning if your opponent uses a barrier to defend themselves they can’t retaliate fast enough because Wong can just defend himself or push his attack. By the way. HE CAN FREEZE TIME!!! So if you only have a little bit of health left he just hyper chrage then time freeze. Then you can kiss your ass good bye when he grabs you. So you are forced to stay on him, which plays right into his hands. Honestly, Wong is god in this game, and I was quite shocked to see that he asn’t top tier on your list oldboy. Here is a link to a strategy guide with info on Wong’s moves and his overall statistics, as well as the other characters. The info is accurate and helps illustrate my point. Here is the link:
As you can see by looking at that faq Wong has many moves that begin execution under half a second, which is pretty much the cut off for fast moves in this game. Under 30 fps is good but go over it and that’s when you notice an increase in execution time of moves. One of the reasons why Wong is such a beast. His time control moves have considerable start up times, but when you consider the effects it’s well worth it.
Wow, I typed alot. Ok, I have alot more to say like about advanced techniques and such and other characters in this game, but I’ll save that until later.
