  1. Same here. Had this running in the background most of the night. Maybe got five games in.
  2. Apparently the room match bug has been fixed. ggs to kayin and bacon last night, persevering in the face of said bug.
  3. Wife is off to bed so I’ll be around for the next couple hours if anyone fancies some good old fashioned ninja shit.
  4. Most strings in the game are unsafe if you finish the last hit. The idea is the ppp part of it gives you time to hit check and you can stop before finishing. The opponent has to gamble to pressure you after because the canned K will still beat anything. Jacky’s 6PK is an excellent example of this. You block the 6P and it’s your turn, but if you try and take it and jacky finishes the string you’re getting knocked down. You guess right and you block the K he’s punishable. You give him too much respect and he can just apply fraudulent pressure over and over.
  5. friendly reminder that you don’t always have to finish strings. Especially if opponent has caught on that you’re doing ppp sweep and blocking everytime. Do ppp low throw. Conditioning goes a long way in vf. Try not to fall into repeating the same habits and instead look at how your opponent is responding to certain situations, put them in that situation and crush them with the move that beats their response. I suck at every single technical aspect of vf, all my wins come from winning the Rock Paper Scissors game more times than the other guy. Don’t stress about rank. Don’t worry about winning. Have fun with the guessing games and figuring out some set ups that work for you. Winning will take care of itself after a while.
  6. Ggs to kayin just now. A very close ft10 followed by a bit of character select rambling. Going to sit down and learn myself a sub character at some point soon. Goh or Lau. Probably Lau as he seems so underrepresented for an OG.
  7. I hit 29 Friday night/Saturday morning. Unfortunately I was having so much fun I stayed up and kept drinking until 4am and ranked down several times. It’s all a bit hazy.
  8. Ok I checked before bed and I was 40th in Europe. Again I think it’s meaningless. HOWEVER I am #2 Kage in Europe and you bet your sweet arse I am gonna try and hit number 1 just so I can screen shot that shit.* *it’s still meaningless. Ryan Hart’s existence makes the very idea of me claiming that as a real thing laughable.
  9. No idea I didn’t think to check. I think that just says sad things about the player count if true cause I still really suck.
  10. Played this for far too long today, to the detriment of doing adulty things. rank 28 tho!
  11. I do love me some repeated elbow spam. Honestly though there’s nothing cheap there, if anything he’s doing himself a disservice. if he’d done elbow > 33p you’d have been dead a few times over. I wouldn’t bother with any fanciness. If your opponent is gonna spam the same move over and over just block and smash the next one with whatever move the connection/your reactions will allow. If he’s not gonna block I’d just do elbow spam myself for the lols
  12. Well done on guardian. I got ranked back down to 25 a few days ago, partially my own fault as I kept playing in the am when the connections were flat out horrific. The lack of Taka is probably because anyone playing him semi sensibly is going to rocket past our rank fairly quickly. He’s as strong as anyone in the game, minus any execution challenge and normal go to combos don’t work on him. I don’t think he’s broken at all, but if you don’t know some Taka specific stuff against him it’s a real uphill battle.
  13. The damage you can get off evade flip kick is fucking insane. Same with akiras bodycheck. Rage inducing.
  14. I’d never go for that personally as it’s very high risk for fairly low reward. Even if you were right on the back dash you still need them to be standing their holding guard when you reach them. Iirc connecting with someone backdashing registers as counter hit in FS and every sidekick will give the weird butt down stagger that practically guaranteed a follow up. Taka is really good at this. His standing K has crazy range and will knock a round start backdash led on their ass for a (maybe strugglable? I haven’t seen it blocked) 33P+K and that’s half a bar gone in the first exchange.
