How does Roger Jr rank? I put people off machines with her. (And why are they calling the character Roger Jr? Jr’s mom is the one owning that ass while Roger Jr just flails around…reminds me of that freak with his brother sticking out of his chest in Total Recall. They can’t just say “Roger’s wife”?)
As most ppl will say, this is the top 5 for the tier list in Tekken 5.0, & I agree w/ Ketsuban 100% as well w/ this.
If you watch any tournament matches like the ones from the Evo Tournaments, the best players use the best characters in order 2 win tournaments; henceforth, they use these five characters that are mentioned above in order 2 increase their chances in winning.
Pretty much what Tekken boils down 2 is these key elements listed below in order 2 be great @ the game:
Safety (safe on block moves that can’t be punished if you block that move)
Air Juggles (doing maximum damage juggles 2 ur opponent when they are in the air helpless
Wall Juggles (doing maximum damage 2 ur opponent w/ juggles when they are splat up against the wall helpless
Oki (“Okizeme” or “Wake-up.” Free damage you can do 2 ur opponent if they lie on the ground or are rolling on the ground)
Mix-ups (doing different attacks @ different levels, plus buffering in other moves & attacks 2 throw ur opponent off & keep them guessing)
Poking (usually consists of u doing quick & safe on block moves & combinations 2 ur opponent 2 chip away @ their health bar)
Spacing (Movement of ur character that allows u 2 set up better for attacking ur opponent as well as movement used 2 sucker ur opponent in2 attacking u & making them whiff that attack)
These are crucial elements that need 2 be mastered in order 2 play Tekken effecticely Sivak. The 5 top characters in the game are the best @ doing all or most of these elements in which I spoke of.
Watch some videos on youtube of some good players using these characters, & you’ll start 2 understand why they are so good @ the game & why those characters are the best 2 use.
Safe moves are moves that give you a frame advantage (hence, “safe”) on block (if blocked). In general, these are moves from your character’s movelist that you can do with minimum consequence/retaliation if the opponent blocks and tries to counter. The best “safe moves” come out fast, have good range and end fast. Not all safe moves have good range, though.
You obviously must not play the game that much. Anyone who actually plays the game including me knows Steve, Nina, Mishimas, Feng and Bryan are the top tier players. Hwoarang is very low tier. It’s kinda funny how this thread just pops up lol. If you read the threads on Tekkenzaibatsu, you can get more informed about Tekken 5.
In 5.0 I think Lei and Hwoarang are top because they have different stances and they can be very confusing with very different mix ups. Next would be King and Kuma and Jack because they are naturally stronger than humans.
Nina’s slow and can’t compete with those characters.
