Who you gonna play as in SFV /v/?
Best girl once she's announced.
Vega because Karin is ass. But then again, with the nerfs he got, I'm not sure he's going to be as fun.
I had lots of fun. Definitely not the most technical of fighters and a bit mashy at times if your footsies aren't there.
Tons of health
Full-circle command grabs
Good damage on combos
Half-circle command grabs
We won't know how he plays yet
Juri is keeping comfy till she gets added
Needs to save energy for
foot job vskill
>no command grab
>rekkas only during V-trigger
>rekkas aren't even real rekkas anymore
>no oki; rekka slide is useless
>all ressenha and mujinkyaku followups are worthless
How would you balance Karin?
You know those overhead and crossup rekkas will blow up bronze league though, think of the good times.
Could just like the character, maybe they know the deepest Street Fighter lore.
>ryu is so much better than ken right now
How? He has been nerfed so hard he's barely viable. Shit, he can't even do the most basic shit like anti-air DP into EX fireball juggle anymore. Nothing combos, and damage and stun have been reduced significantly.
Choose your colors!
Left to Right
Well if he did then he should probably fucking stop hiding shit in the game itself before it's even released
I can't fucking understand why they wouldn't just have all that data on their computers at Capcom HQ or w/e company that is actually making the game and then patch it in later
they relased at beta on the PC ffs they should know people would find out about this
>im ever going to touch Birdie
>FULL SUPER SAYIN 6
im pretty basic desu
It has more to do with the e-sports league they're building than anything else. A lot of the systems they're testing out involves the Capcom Pro Circuit. The video starts out with unique event announcements regarding Capcom Pro Tour events that all have automatic seeds into Capcom Cup.
>all these ryu and ken scrubs
/v/ has been compromised by casuals
>implying Ryu and Ken aren't your waifus
There is no use lying on the internet.
>literally using the tutorial characters
>hating on people for playing Ryu
ken i can understand cuz he kinda just devolved into the flowchart
But Ryu is literally all about footseis
If anything you should thank them for wanting to play street fighter
Unlike all the Ibuki, Karin and Mika fags
oh and let me guess you play Cammy right?
Don't know about how Alex plays in SFV but in III he was supposed to be a new "standard" archetype like shotos so Capcom's idea of that was to essentially make him a hybrid of all types of play.
He has quarter circle, half circle, and dragon punch-motion specials, charge moves, and an SPD.
>But Ryu is literally all about footseis
Cammy is the real footsie oriented char, ryu is all about muh flowchart and muh evo #37
>Cammy is the real footsie oriented char
It isn't my fault Capcom fucked up the balance and it isn't my fault Capcom didn't put muh boy since mama gave me a $20 in an arcade in 95.
It also isn't my fault the Shirokiya in Ala Moana had alpha 3 on a dreamcast and I bought it after playing the demo unit even though I ended up playing Jet Set Radio, Power Stone, and Virtua Fighter 3 more than alpha 3.
Fuck you faggot.
Karin winning the poll with ease, she must be good for beginners?
>all those waifuniggers
dis gon b gud
I hope you're talking about Jurifags and R.Mikafags.
Karin has waifufags but at the same time she's literally the only rekka connection style character in SF5. The earliest that burden will be eased is 2017 too.
She's the only thing we've got god damn it. Just let me sit in a corner with Kazu and Fuudo and sulk while grapplers keep bitching even though by the end of the dlc there will be more grapplers than shotos.
Consider trying out a charge pressure character like Bison or even Nercalli.
Functionally leg presses are a lot like rekkas.
Shit works like a poke and makes you move over the field.
Top pacing shit in general.
And who knows? Maybe that FUN guy is a rekka character.
Leave the waifufag rape-spree to the professionals
Thats the one I'll work with.
Either him or Bison.
Its no popularity contest. And thats good.
If it was it would be waifushits and Ryu only.
If you think about it, Birdie is one of the most Street Fighter characters, being a nigger punk.
God I can't wait to aegis reflector the shit out of people.
>Dat feel when Capcom Cup will be the last we see of competitive SFIV
Capcom is working with Sony's sports division to help create the SF5 league. Red Bull was the first company to jump in but they've got a bunch of Sony's sports partners ready to start putting in money next year.
If things keep going the way they are then SF5 will be the first of the tournament games to get legit non-tech sponsors.
> there will be an SF pro in your life time sponsored by a goddamned bank or credit card company
Dhalsim makes people too salty to even want to try him. He disgusts people. Like, a really good Dhalsim just makes people mad as fuck even if you respect the guy.
He's just one of those characters.
People have had a chance to play Necalli and Rashid, but no chances with Laura so she's an unknown quantity.
First I am going to experiment
I am probably going to main either Dhalsim, or Necalli, or laura first.
Then once Urien hits I am MAINING that gachimuchi nigga.
>every race and culture has representation in street fighter
>except jewish people
The people in power are those you can't talk about.
as a guy that plays heavy rush down charaters i gotta say
Dalsim looks comfy as fuck in this game
>all those Iframes
>teleport dosn't look shit
i have a feeling that im gonna play him this game and just lame people out for days
I agree fully. He's always been that way. The problem is that a really good Sim will just fuck with you and your comprehension of your own skill level so people that play him just make others salty by existing.
Birdie was not popular because his movelist in Alpha was a total fucking stupid mix of grapples and charge moves
I also personally don't dig how he's a 70's british punk rocker, yet supposed to be black- what the hell is the deal with that?
I don't like his gluttony gimmick in SFV, either.
But his theme has always been super sick, and I've a soft spot for him as SFA2 was my first SF game and my favourite.
got to play some sf5 at six flags liked it, play it again on the pc something about it just does not feel right is it just me?
>Birdie was not popular because his movelist in Alpha was a total fucking stupid mix of grapples and charge moves
Thats not a stupid mix.
Balrog is all charge moves and his game plays around his grab.
Birdie was the Balrog clone and they simply went the whole mile to give him a command grab.
The biggest issue was his shitty normals. But they arent shitty anymore.
Guile/Ryu are usually my main. I never got to play Third Strike but I'm eager to play Urien and Alex. Urien mostly cause I've seen some YouTube clips and he actually looks fun. I don't get the Alex hype but I'll give him a go, too.
I love you Karin but Alex exist.
Shout out to my other 23 people with good taste.
Urien is gonna be godlike. Why the fuck is there no Makoto or Dudley.
One of the leaked silhouettes looks like he has E. Hondas pose.
Maybe SFV features a skinny E. Honda?
Kind of like Skinny Bob from Tekken.
>his sumo drop causes him to bounce now and follow up with aerials
mite b cool
honestly what is your onion on the game anon i would like to know
Well, if you have a charge move and a grapple, but shitty normals, he could really do with either different specials or different normals, couldn't he?
But I digress, basically, everyone agrees Birdie in SFA was a poorly designed character and his SFV rendition is pretty sick
Charge moves and grabs are far from special.
Honda has them. Alex has them.
Your point has nothing to do with why Birdie wasnt the greatest.
>everyone agrees Birdie in SFA was a poorly designed character
I like the game. I think it has flaws concurrent with switching to a new system, but for the most part it's a solid starting point.
However you also played the TGS build with the express purpose of testing servers expecting replication of the infinitely superior offline experience after having your first SF5 experience be offline and on site.
Of course it was going to feel off.
Yeah, but he's not Alex or Honda, is he?
Birdie sucked in every fucking game he was in.
Not even counting his shit-ass normals, his headbutt super can be MASHED OUT OF, and his grapples were slow as balls.
He's fucking shit tier, man. He had nothing nobody else couldn't do better.
>All these Mika's and Karin's
He didn't ask who you want to fuck, he asked who your main was going to be.
/v/ sucks at fighting games and I refuse to believe that you scrubs are going to consistently use Karin, a character that requires patience and excellent footsies and frame knowledge, or Mika, a grappler that relies on tick throws, resets, and hard reads.
You guys are going to play Ryu and Bison.
>He didn't ask who you want to fuck, he asked who your main was going to be.
50% of the people who are going to play this game won't give a shit about that.
Then again, 50% of the people who play the game probably won't hang onto it for more than two months.
I played Fei in SF4, Rufus in Super, and T. Hawk in Ultra. I have no right to talk to a Gen main about footsies, but you don't seriously believe the people picking Mika/Karin in the poll actually know what they're doing, do you?
Speaking of Mika, I kinda wish her s.MK did a bit more damage. Hawk's s.HK does enough to make people afraid so you can slowly walk them to a corner, but Mika's s.MK barely does any damage at all. People are supposed to be afraid of grapplers, not going crazy on them.
I'm saying I'm going to main Karin bro.
90% of every character is going to be played by shitters who don't know the ins and outs about their character, the match ups, how to maximize damage, or the effective mind games. That's just something you have to deal with.
People just pick the character they like and waifufags are just louder than the shitty Vegas and shitty Giefs.
I'm going to be a mediocre Karin until I get down her quirks and find the proper ebb and flow and how that will factor into whiff mind games. That's just the way it is.
There are things you just have to accept.
Nigger try looking through the thread again.
The people in here are actually talking about the game and for the most part knows what they are talking about and the waifu posteing is minimu
We al know /v/ sucks at fighting games, but having 30 different people in the thread stating the exact same thing over and over again in every fighing thread is even more insufferable
Now post cute girls, talk about the game or fuck off
Probably gonna play Ryu and try out Karin and maybe Vega until my real main gets in.
That's what I'm worried about. I spent so much time practicing combos these past few days and it seems Capcom is going to change a lot of her mixups/combos because they're too good.
Going to have to wait until Capcom cup for that reveal. Or at least until Eurogamer fucks up again.
Hot and Cold is just a poster anon. Literally nothing. Just like Haggar, Maki, Guy, and Fei Long are just posters now.
how does it feel to be keked by watercolor sora?
excuse me? i'm the only waifu material here.
I'm more excited about Guile but i wonder how Ibuki will play in sfv
Can't be! The bottom one is shit compared to the top one! Those dimps assholes need to stop listening to these faggot Japanese who think these huge eyes anime designs are better. Fucking idiots, I swear.
>calls ken flowchart
so you never played and just heard the flowchart meme once
ken is a footsies aggressive character nowadays friend
Ryu is considerably more flowcharty than ken, but is more footsies than what flowchart ken was
Cammy is also very footsies intensive, except in AE where she was full retard rushdown mode and was
Ibuki is for fags i agree
karin is as footsies as dudley
>Fun mixup character that might be the most technical character in the cast
>Feng Shui engine in a game that's not as defensive as SFIV
Nah but let's ignore the fact they look fun and just say it's waifufags.
Karin's not even attractive desu, I hate drill hair.
On the one hand she regained her cheerful charm again and isn't super serious anymore.
But on the other hand she is supposed to be older.
We lost MILFy Chun-Li
Frankly the only shitty SF2 characters are Blanka and Tony H.
I can see why people wouldn't like Honda as well but I love him.
>No one mentioning the video saying FUN
Zen deconfirmed, the fuck kinda name is Fun? Sounds Chinese.
If I start a SFIV lobby would anyone be up for it?
laugh all you want, but the CvS2 Training stage is fucking legit, and the marvel 2 training to an extent, and tatsunoko
god I love training stages
>For what purpose?
We do not ask why, we ask why not.
Ryu is best and his new normals are fucking sexy.
DONKEY KICK W H E N
To be frank if you're asking why not then you don't know the purpose of a training stage or why guys like Rico Suave complain about how shit KIs one is.
That grid is everything and why it's bullshit that they let it be picked so much in SF4 tournaments.
It's about the functionality for workshopping more than anything else.
I mean why not as in, it's the beta and you can only play offline. Might as well change whatever you want while there is nothing to do.
Is claw a charge character again? Seems weird doing all his shit with quarter circles. Dumbest change in my opinion.
He's not wrong about that greentexted point. Birdie and Mika were always toted as the absolute worst characters in the alpha series. The only thing that even lends them to still being played at acho or Game Spot are their massive damage CCs
Karin, Ken and maybe rashid. But Karin was way too much fun. I couldn't get too much time with rashid, but he was fun from what i played.
Maybe Ibuki, I've mained her since 3S, but it really depends on how she plays on V.
>Ryu is considerably more flowcharty than ken
Are you serious? Ryu has to parry to do good damage since all of his current moves are slow as fuck and/or have no range. At least Ken can combo off of his pokes and SRK with v-skill/v-trigger.
Karin or Nash look neat
Was thinking I'd finally give in, buy a stick and try to git gud for this game. Is there a list of sticks which are confirmed to work with the PC version of SFV? I heard some people were having issues, so don't want to accidentally fuck myself over
How difficult was Karin's just frame launcher? I missed half of the beta.
Why would anybody get upset over that
This was just the beta, Im pretty sure that all sticks that work on PC will work on the finished game.
And even if they dont, you will still be able to use xpadder.
I used xpadder.
Hopefully they redesign Juri's outfit and hair
What would you prefer? I really like the short hair, long braids with some sort of ornament in them could be cool as well but too similar to Cammy maybe
It's a fucking stage, why is it that big of a deal? Who cares what they pick?
>And Fei was literally the reason they had to update Super street fighter 4 because he was so broken
Things that never happened lmao. People didn't even consider Fei top tier until AE.
I like uninteractive offensive characters like Seth, so Necalli felt great to me.
Anyone interested in a SFIV lobby? if not I'll just get stomped on 3S I guess
Look me dead in the eye and tell me the CvS2 training stage isn't fucking legit
faith juri looks cool as fuck, I kind of wish girl designs were less sexy and more cool, I don't even mean that in a politically correct way, shit like C. Viper, KoF Vanessa, and Tekken Katarina are cool as fuck
because it had the least amount of fucking lag in usfiv people play it because they think they are losing due to lag and if people think that its fine. Killer instinct devs are faggots because their stages have frame drops and you can not pick training stage at all
Laura looks fun. She reminds me of shermie a little.
I'm sure you know all OS and unblockables for your main and consistently perform them mid game.
Is Hiroshima breaking 4chan again?
That was my first thought as well
Maybe her V-Trigger could be some Feng Shui Engine-esque and make her eyes light up and change her hair in some way? Not as dramatically as Necalli, bit I think it could be cool
I plan on learning how to play every character but for my main I have to say I think I'm just going to stick with her.
There's nobody that I'm really in love with at the moment unless Zen ends up being cool
Got my character in, pulling Alex now in the future for some homies.
Stay strong senpai he'll be here eventually.
Dont forget these ones.
I like the 2 bottom ones, altho dem boot shorts...
Birdie, man. I wanted to waifufag for Mika but I can't really get the hang of her, she doesn't play like her Alpha 3 version. But Birdie is huge, and does huge damage, and has the only good English voiceover, so yes.
I didn't save them all, and now I want them.
the 1st one became an alternate costume.
Speaking of concepts I'm kinda hoping these get made into dlc costumes down the line.
No final fight characters
I give 0 fucks
I actually do know all my character's OSes with character specific shit and unblockable setups. I don't even care if they return or not because this is a completely new game that doesn't play like other SFs. I just want archetypes to be properly represented and this shit is currently more homogenized than SF3.
>it's just going to be guy and cody again when they come in eventually
How are you supposed to focus on gitting gud with shit like this being in the game? Jesus Christ...
>someone saved my image
I'm just tickled pink, anon.
Well I managed with her 1st and 3rd alt.
I went AFK so iunno if you're still around.
You did pretty decently If I may offer some basic advice:
Work on connecting your normals into hayate (dash punch) more. General rule of thumb is you can connect a normal into a hayate of the same power (light punch into light hayate, fierce into fierce, etc).
Keep your eyes open for more chances to karakusa (command grab). That's where a lot of the damage and stun can come from. A j.lp or j.lk have ridiculously low hitstun, so you can hit them with it and by the time you're back on the ground they recover faster than theyd expect and you can karakusa them safely.
Starting out just doing a karakusa into hp into hayate will be fine. You already have karakusa into ultra down.
ex karakusa also has one hit of super armor on it, you might catch someone off guard, but dont try it too much.
s.mp is an amazing button and has a bigger hitbox than you'd expect.
Try to avoid jumping too much as well utilize your dashes and focuses. You can use your air axe kick to make your jump somewhat safe but still be careful.
And the number one thing new Makotos have trouble with is accidentally getting up-punch instead of hayate. Be very mindful of if you're buffering forward. A normal up-punch has no ground hitbox on it, so you'll be completely vulnerable.
Best of luck anon
If you want to just learn street fighter and don't have a direction for who you want, then actually pick up ryu.
Other than that, I'd say play whoever feels the most comfortable in your hands.
