So, who's waiting for the glorious return of Gilgamesh in the new Dissidia?
-maybe with moves that are actually useful this time around-
Post also the veteran you want to return the most, anon.
i mained sephiroth for his gameplay(didn't use shadow flare) i liked slashing and throwing getsugas and shit, with huge melee range, and heavens light was my favorite attack, i also loved terra and kefka in vanilla
The one and only of course. Copycat failure of a son is not welcome.
My main is the main man himself, spammer of light.
Other than that I just want to see Bartz and Cecil not suck ass for once.
I'm getting close to being gud with her, it's rewarding as hell playing a character who uses fists. It'd be great if they made her a bit faster with her bravery attacks.
Sadly Tifa is along with Prishe the character i play the least in Duodecim. Dunno why, but i don't have a good fun sensation while playing with those two, even though their fighting style is nicely put.
Playing as or against? Cecil and especially Vaan fuck up the AI really hard.
Come on, it was disgustingly easy to land. The most staisfying attack to land is Holy Combo-Ultima
You basically use them when you send your opponent against the wall so you can chain attacks, and also to punish whiffed attacks.
Some characters have huge cooldowns on their attacks, making them really unsafe because the opponent can use an assist to fuck you over. Cloud of Darkness comes to mind, that's the main reason she's shit tier. But if you're only playing in singleplayer mode you won't have to worry about the lack of balance, you'll probably get places even with bad characters.
Webm related, that's how you use assists to chain attacks most of the time. You basically make it so your opponent is unable to dodge it. So either by sending him against the walls as I've said, or by using an assist when he's using a slow-ass attack that forces him to stay put for a while.
Protip : Kuja and Jecht are pretty much the best assists. Sephiroth is also pretty good. A lot of the other characters are fucking useless as assists.
Tifa is garbage against the AI. Her only saving grace is that her Ice spells are pretty good and Somersault.
Still, there are other characters that do what she does and are a lot more fun to play.
Kain combos are fancy but seem a bit random as to when the enemy can dodge out of it or not. Easier to just Fang them after an assist.
>A lot of the other characters are fucking useless as assists.
I agree, especially in cases like The Emperor.
"Mwahahahah, i'm the most ingenious trapmaster of all dimensions! Now let me just place these two small purple cherries here that the enemy will avoid anyway so i can go back being evil. Goodbye!"
My wishlist for characters is
>Wiegraf or Gafgarrion
>Barret or Cid
>Zell or Quistis
Hell Id like a lot of FF6 characters to get in, but assuming each installment only gets 1 or so more characters...
Also fucking hell, I really really want an FFT representative. Especially over new MMO characters. or FF13 characters.
I think Duodecim new comers are the only ones who have a big chance of being cut. That said...
Honestly, I loved nearly every duodecim edition aside from Yuna. I couldn't really get into her play style.
Laguna is my favorite though based on personality alone. Not to mention he was tons of fun to play as. I later picked up Tifa and Vaan as well. Both are hella fun, but I think I'd be most upset by losing Laguna or Tifa than the others.
As for original vets...
Tidus and Squall were my go tos. Picked up Kuja for a caster/villain.
Y'shtola looks neat, but Noctis is the one I'm most hyped for.
>Easier to just Fang them after an assist.
why not both.webm
Firion does the same shit, he just shows up, throws his shitty spells and calls it a day. I guess it was their way of saying "sorry for making FF2 characters so fucking OP, here, we'll make them shitty assists"
You're trying to use them while you're getting hit. I should have mentioned this too, but you can do this to save your ass. It'll lock your assist bar for a while but if you do it right you can avoid damage.
I'm not a fan but she's good too, yeah.
What are you even on about? Here, have a homemade one instead of that basic as fuck vid. Do something better than this and come back to tell me to git gud.
>The timing for that combo is so absurdly strict.
You'd be surprised, it's really not that hard to pull off as long as you have enough room. And that's coming from someone who is completely unable to time Jecht's combos.
Done on a maximum difficulty AI and tested on a human opponent with auto-recover enabled. Cannot be dodged, those are timed dodge cancels and are still present in Jecht in duodecim. SE saying they took them completely out of the game was false, some other characters still retain dodge cancel legit combos. Another example here.
The auto-tracking of the cecil AI in the previous webm doesn't work for all characters though since some have weird hit-boxes and will be slammed down by jecht before cecil can pick them up. There is a work-around around for that which I already figured out as well.
How do you do this? I honestly practiced for an hour last night and couldn't even get the timing of the first O down.
Learn the timing of all the jecht combos, preferably by listening to the audio cues of jecht hitting his opponent.
Every starting combo of jecht goes like this:
Ground: Jecht does one hit, press O exactly after you hear it.
Air: Jecht does a 2 hit bicycle combo, press O exactly after that.
After you have the combos down, learn the dodge cancel which is done by inputting a dodge right you send and opponent flying from the ground with a very specific chase combo.
The vid shows that after the X appears for a chase you input up+dodge(R+X) to cancel the chase and get a full combo while opponent is still in stun from the chase animation.
Its a glitch, but I'll take what I can get.
>Its a glitch, but I'll take what I can get.
Who cares? Even with glitches like these, Jecht can't hold a candle to bullshit characters like Ultimecia. There's no reason not to abuse them, especially when it involves cuhrazy combos.
Actually nobody can handle Ultimecia since she's the true top, the most broken character of the game by far.
Case in point
Excuse the edge, combos are all legit, its actually a pretty good vid to watch if you wannna see how deliciously broken stuff you can actually do.
Even without those combos its like fighting a warship. Lasers/missiles/bombs ready to rain down on you as you try to get close to her.
>So, you offer your life in exchange for theirs?
>Of course not. I offer yours.
Why is Kain such a baller
Nice one, good to see someone who actually knows how to Jecht.
Did you know that you can also squeeze in a charge of UJS and still combo it?
Yeah, real good when that lands. Tried with lvl2 charge UJS as well but unfortunately it comes out a tad late.
Another thing I tried and was pretty neat was to charge jecht blade on that ground combo instead of UJS and throw an assist to bring them to the ground so they can get raped by lvl2 jecht blade. Those double damage hits man.
Also triumphant grasp there at the end of the webm can also be charged to lvl1 before you let it rip but its something like a 1framer and I can never get it.
mfw YOU DARE?!
I like how all the Jecht webms involve him beating the living hell out of Tidus. Always Tidus.
Incorporating assists into combos feels good as hell, but I've developed a bad habit of always saving them for escaping hp damage because of my accessory setup.
For fucking real? I tried incorporating charges in all kind of combos and UJS is the only one that worked for me. I never though Dissidia would have 1-framers.
Also Jump way too good.
He's the closest thing to a training dummy since there's no training mode. Predictable AI that uses his feints that are all telegraphed if not used to avoid an attack. Even maximum difficulty AI does it so its a sure fire way.
That said it is pretty funny.
how did I never think of that.
I want him to be able to equip more weapons, especially other character ones.
I'd love to see him beat Garland to death with 8 of those giant things.
