As bait for shitty players
>watching people get anguished when they discover that Mai is fucking garbage in KOF13
Because he's most beta fighting game character EVER.
>Or Heidern, Oswald, Shingo, Adelheid, Momoko...
>mfw King has canonically bigger breasts than Mai
Mai's boobs just look bigger because they basically naked.
>played FHD for the first time on GGPO last year
>game is great fun and a solid SF2-style fighter
>Mizoguchi has the best theme song in the game
>you only hear it about twice per hour because the stage rotation goes in a fixed order
I wish there was a stage select cheat that was usable in MP or something
Mai's supposed to be bigger in cup size, but her measurements are smaller.
Mai can't get Andy because Andy has no interest in her.
Robert's been after Yuri for exactly as long. And he hasn't made significant progress because her father disapproves, and that bothers him.
According to the SNK wiki Mai is one cm larger. That's nuts though and just tells me that the written "canon" doesn't mean shit compared to what we straight up see. I mean, where does King hide those puppies? Even when her shit gets blasted off she doesn't look that big.
>started picking up 13 again after letting it sit for months since one of my GGPO buddies got it on Steam
>been playing it a lot lately
>started experimenting with
This is the first time her playstyle has made sense to me, feels good beating people out with pokes all day
I used to be a very good Leona player and stuck with her for about 3 years of play but I eventually (and painfully) realised she was complete garbage and has several huge flaws in how her character is designed
I don't think she's viable at a high level, even as a matchup character, most of her stuff is fundamentally flawed at worst or suicidal against common top tier picks (Basically doing any of her specials ever against Mr Karate except a reaction V slasher punish or an anti air moon slasher)
She is one of the characters that just doesn't really work in KOF13's system. She is my favourite character in the game, but I had to drop her because it was clear that she was a handicap to play.
I could go in a lot more detail about her issues but that would be a lot of effort and I doubt you care so whatever
dem are old broken used goods
I'd like to know for the sake of leveling up in 13 at least, I've been playing 98 for years and so far I've been dreading having to invest serious time into learning things in 13 like HD loops and getting matchups down but I guess now is a better time than ever
She was my waifu back before anyone knew what the fuck waifus were.
AH'LL STAIN MAH HANS
WEIGHING YO BRA
>Not liking a girl that's strong enough to make fake-ass Pro Wrestling moves absolutely deadly
There are none.
>Kula dead last
Nobody is worse than Xiangfei
>SNK had the choice to introduce Xiangfei or Duck King in 99
>they went with this piece of shit
>Duck King doesn't get his day in the sun until XI
>XII throws him right out the fucking window along with all the other fresh and interesting XI character picks
If you're coming from 98 that makes stuff a lot easier
So, things Leona is actually good at
>Air to air with V slasher
>Poking with normals
>Above average corner HD damage
>In theory, the best instant overhead in the game
Things Leona is bad at
>She cannot actually lock opponents down safely, so they don't need to deal with her mixups if they don't want to (protip: they don't want to and won't)
>She has to be closer than almost every other character to connect her st.b for combos
>All of her specials have too much startup to safely use, and some of them are punishable on a guard roll if used on pressure
>She has almost no hard knockdowns, and this means no safejumps, which is a massive handicap. Her one hard knockdown is from her raw overhead, from which she gets virtually nothing.
So her issues are basically this
>Her special moves cannot be safely used, especially against a Mr.Karate with a level 2 ranbu ready
>Her run slash, which is clearly designed as her 'lock down' move, is 0 on block. This leaves her at point blank range and forces HERSELF into a guessing game. This is made even worse by two facts.
First: Leona's fastest normal is 4 frames, and her heavies are very slow. Many good characters have 3 frame normals, which means Leona is GUARANTEED to lose in this situation unless she uses EX moon slasher, which is VERY risk
Second: Her other option here is to go for instant overhead, which is sadly not legit at all, because backdashing is a safe option that leaves her unsafe after the ioh, and also keeps you safe from a low.
So basically, Leona's lockdown move leaves her in the disadvantageous position.
And worst of all, what she is good at doesn't work in KoF13. Poking without combos nets no damage, and even V-slash reaction attacks are a lot of risk for not very much reward, and no okizeme afterward, so you can't continue pressure on hit.
I'm out of space so that's all you get
>Go to Sadpanda
>type "king of fighters angel"
It's not hard guys, though there isn't a lot to choose from. Still better than a lot of characters.
King is a very good character but that isn't what I mean
King is a very popular beginner character because she is (on the surface) very simple and easy to pick up. That's the reason why you see everyone on eventhubs with Terry (lol busta wolf xd) and King (wow i can actually play this character!)
Not really, it's probably the worst popular game in the series for that style of play.
You CAN definitely play lame, but you are going to have to eventually go in if you want to win, because anti airs/normals in that game generally do no real damage. In KoF13 damage = meter. If you didn't spend meter, you didn't do shit for damage, and you don't spend meter when you st.a someone out of the air.
I will always like this game's roaster the best
Bonne is a better cock tease than Mai
Bonne's more about being perfect at physical comedy rather than a straight vamp IMHO.
you will never get your ass beaten by her stiletto heel
If you're playing the Steam version a few people said they had issues during the beta with characters appearing invisible ingame until they reinstalled, could be related to that since there is supposed to be a preview
no I mean I can't see anything at all
>she wont ever get to be in another game
I will rephrase that
>she will never get to be in another good game
Well, for team composition you've got a character that can be used in any spot and can act as a battery or closer (Kim) and a character that NEEDS lots of meter to be decent with, but isn't good enough to be a closer (Mai), so...?
My pick would be to go with a character that could play "Lame" and help you build meter, or sit back in the third character spot and blast people with EX Psycho Balls.
The wide variety in artists used to portray the same characters is obviously going to introduce discrepancy. It should also tell you something that you care about measurements more than the artists do.
>I mean, where does King hide those puppies?
It's not as hard as you'd think. Ask a cosplayer.
Here is a tier list by position by a bunch of Japanese players
It's a year or so old so it's a bit outdated, but it's pretty solid and might give you ideas
>Robert's been after Yuri for exactly as long. And he hasn't made significant progress because her father disapproves, and that bothers him
It doesn't help that she's also very very dense and either forgets that he likes her or just doesn't notice at all. It gets worse from there since Athena likes Kyo, but he doesn't really see her the same way, Kensou likes Athena but he's got the worst luck in wooing her, and Kula likes K but he couldn't give even the most miniscule fuck. The only characters that seem to have requited feelings for one another are Terry and Blue Mary, and Ryo and King.
So who are your mains for 13 anyway guys?
>YFW it turns out to be another Pachinko "Game"
From my experience, you have to mindful of how characters work as well as their tiers in XIII. Like how you want to put Shen Woo or Vice in the 3rd character slot so they can get ALL OF THE METER and do retarded HD Combos.
Until SNKP actually go ahead with making "Offically Licensed" Doujins, yes, yes they are.
>Fighting style is literally tearing and gutting people with his barehands
>Constantly threatens to murder people who even so much as look at him.
I will never understand this.
Liz, Mature, and Iori in that order
Realistically if you want a viable team it should pretty much always be
1st: Not meter dependent but with a decent way to tack damage on if they get a lead
2nd: A character who doesn't rely on HD combos in order to do large amounts of damage so your 3rd character can ToD and end the game. You see a lot of characters with either retarded meter effeciency/damage in this position and can build it back quickly (Eg. Takuma or Chin style yes I did just 80-90% you for almost no meter, what about it?)
3rd: Someone who can kill with one touch because if you don't do it the other guy probably will
You can change it up a bit, and sometimes it works, but that's pretty much how team comp works most of the time, and the tier list reflects that somewhat
They are quite inconsistent with Iori's characerisation
I think the modern way they're doing it is that Iori is secretly a nice guy and is usually trying to avoid fighting by threatening people. He does still really hate Kyo though, though I doubt he would ever actually kill him.
Iori was only really written as a bad guy in very early KoF
So I've only lightly played with some of the KOFs around the turn of the century (was more about Garou and Last Blade), I picked up '13 and I'm really liking it. I hardly experimented much with the older KOFs, just went with Fatal Fury. But now I don't seem to enjoy any of the Team Fatal Fury characters in 13, so I've been going with the Random Button for the past 30 hours.
The only character that I like so far is Mature (and to a lesser extent, Shen). There are still a bunch of characters who's style I don't really know yet, but I'm not sure who would compliment them or who else would be good for someone with only little experience in KOF.
I prefer Mai over Chun Li because Mai is one if my mains in KoF XIII.
I just fight against computers, so I can use anyone I want.
>So who are your mains for 13 anyway guys?
Same as every KoF.
Do Mai and Andy actually have a kid?
KoF is kind of a dream match, and Geese doesn't appear anymore. Neither Andy nor Mai appear in Gaoru.
Besides if their conversations from KoFXIII is to be taken seriously, they live in the same place and already behave like a married couple, he's probably got no other choice.
Do you think we'll ever see KoF 14? I hope Shingo, Rock and Gai Tendo gets in.
i've read somewhere that kunoichi (female ninjas) used her bodies to distract their enemies while fighting, thus the reason why mai is showing all of her delicious boobs and stuff
Anything official yet on kof 14?
Any thoughts, speculations, wishes?
My wishes are just SNK makes anti air normals actually reliable again and don't go as full fucking retard with safe on block EX moves and +frames on fucking everything so we don't have Chin/Hwa Jai/Kim repeats Too many characters can also completely bypass the need to actually be able to play the game with similar EX anywhere juggle/massive damage off of a random safe extension move shit (Aka the entire game plan of Vice and a major part of Takuma's)
And if you must have another 'combo mode' it should be MUCH weaker than HD is, that shit is stupid.
And /V/ tries to say that female characters aren't exploited and degraded, and there's nothing wrong with how women are represented in video games.
Can you really look at this and tell me a straight face that this should continue to be a part of our industry?
That Darkstalkers 1 art, man. Still some of my favorite video game promotional art.
Back the fuck off my daughteru
i know youre being facetious, but the fact is that your post is rooted in truth
regardless, i see more and more 4channers standing up against sexism everyday. its kind of a beautiful thing
If anything, she WANTS to be exploited by men.
And by men I mean just Andy.
Goddammit Andy just fuck her already, Jesus Christ.
Look up buttered toast and realize why you're gravy.
Andy is the worst. It's like Terry sucked up all the awesomeness in the the family.
She's extremely in love and dependant on Andy who despite having a bomshell of a woman offer herself to him still refuses to join her team except for one instance. Like SNK can write a good charecter arc with Andy and Mai such as Mai's dependancy around him or Andy's refusal to open up in anyway (he's like Jotaro and you know how his marriage and kid ended up.) but they don't and want to stay on square one. If only they actually made her a deep charecter-wise as her cleavage is.
A majority of us aren't sexist. A majority of us also don't see a problem with having beautiful sexy characters. Grow the fuck up and quit shit posting. Tumblr is waiting for you.
Are you opposed to independent, intelligent, skilled, beautiful women, who are fully confident in themselves and their bodies, being represented in video games?
How dare you, oppressor!
Honestly laughed way harder than I should have.
>Look up Anita Sarkeesians videos and conform to her views.
Shes a ninja. Female ninjas historically and in Japanese myth have all used sex appeal to distract their enemies.
Hmm...would that mean that the Capcom vs SNK, SNK vs Capcom, SNK Gals Fighters, and Neo Geo Battle Colosseum are Dream Matches or Own Universe?
'Cause god DAMN I love those games, too
Yeah because moot fucking sold out to SJW shills and now they run this place. Honestly I was kind of in denial about it at first. Saying /v/ hadn't really changed that much, but in these past 2 months its become painfully obvious.
its become painfully obvious that you think shitposters are legit SJWs
seriously its the same people just just shitposting about somethign different and you have to be retarded to think they are actually serious
He kept running out into the middle of busy streets to buy Athena Asamiya (along with Mimori Yusa & Akina Nakamori) posters/dolls/tickets/CD's/onaholes/etc. and winding-up in the hospital due to multiple broken bones and burst internal organs.
Sad thing is though, mi amigo, is that some of them ARE serious. They're just too stupid to realize that others are shitposting.
God Damn...I miss the Trolls. At least you knew they were Trolls, and more importantly THEY knew they were Trolls. I never thought I'd type that, either.
Wonder what the next 5 years will bring...
>is that some of them ARE serious.
i dont believe this in the least bit especially when 90% of them go YOUR RIGHT I WAS TROLLING COME TO MY WEBSITE IF YOU DONT WANT TO BE TROLLED
seriously ignore them you are part of the cancer if you are replying
Shingo will come back for sure, he's probably healed up from his KoF11 wounds by now and really wants to come back. We could see a Shingo/Beni/Goro team as Team Japan, and another Kyo and Iori single-entry thing.
>Diana covering Kula's eyes
>Max covering K''s eyes
because 15 year old boys like to fap to chinese cartoons
The Japan-Only KOF: MIRA did, but he was a secret boss character that could be normally playable.
His inclusion into MIRA was the only thing Falcoon did right with the Maximum Impact games IMHO.
Well, when he debuted the Manga that starred the character he was based off of
(Momotaro Tsurugi)was fucking HUGE at the time, plus Falcoon was a big-enough fanboy that he got him in. Plus, SNKP had bought out Data East's backlog of copyrights and series and Mizoguchi was a pretty neat way to publicize that, even if they really haven't done anything with those IPs since...
There's no pleasing Terry haters:
If you play him in a game where he's powerful they cry about scrubs picking him for being powerful, and if you play him in games where he's weak then they cry about you not having played the games.
I fucking hate how they toned that down in KOF XIII...
