now you're just making shit up...
he doesnt magically have good zoning, player has to be good too
?????? since when is this a major reason why a character is stupid except elena?
woooooooow they should remove those
>why a character is stupid
I said ryu is a solid character with tools for every situation and winning with him is not some once in a life time event that should be celebrated shut the fuck up
burden of proof is on you anonyderp
krillin and tien are stronger
feelio when always the most evil good guy
dude he's the most basic honest character in the game, well maybe not sf4 cause mashed dp into fadc ultra
>lightning legs on pad
I've had success sliding my thumb right to left so that I get LK, MK, MK, LK really fast. Then finish with HK on the triggers.
It's hard to do though. If I want to do legs the easy way is to just dash forward then mash on HK during the dash. It will give you close st HK into HK legs.
Why is it that every Abel player is such a complete peace of shit? Every single one I run into just runs away the whole time, trying to air to air or that full screen kick thing. It's obnoxious as hell.
When I first started playing I played a bunch of matches with an Abel player who I was better than but didn't know how to punish the rainbow kick as Gief so any time he got in trouble he would just spam it and I would lose. If I ever find that fucker again I'll double perfect his ass
Instead he loses it in his specials that are the core of his entire play (and they start up extremely slow forcing you to throw them out at a punishable range or your opponent has to respect you) and dies in one knockdown instead of three
>tfw a mod is better than an official costume made by capcom
Claire's rodeo costume is terrible. This mod is way better. I would have bought this instead.

That still costs life to do. You could be winning and have your opponent in the corner but one mashed out 2A will kill you because you wasted 30% on mix ups. He's extremely high risk/high reward and the most so in UNIEL
scrub story alert
I'm learning DOA5, never played it before, I have like 7 hours logged total in the game. I'm playing marie rose against my cousin whose playing the drunken fist guy, and holy fuck. My cousin has also never played the game before and has logged maybe 3 hours total? But this drunken fist dude is wrecking me. I'm trying to block things and like, find openings but his mixups seem to be infinite and you know what yes I'm mad.
What am I supposed to do when all he does is push buttons and shit on me? I try so hard to block and go for a read and I win maybe 4/6 matches but he doesn't even block and he wins against me. Is there a safe opening I should be going for against this fucking shit? I should spend more time in arcade mode or something idk
Seth is still higher risk since he has to work for everything and doesn't even get as much of a reward off of setups like he does
and the Carmine comparison is still pretty much the same because you can waste 30% of your life on a blockstring and then get deadangled or swept anyway as A.B.A.
and then depending on how much moroha gauge you had at that point you either have to play safe and attempt a chaingrab/bloodpack or you get instant killed
Haven't played it in a while. Will probably buy the us version.
honestly I think the problem is that I don't do good damage with combos when I actually go for them. I end up doing the really easy stuff and do jack shit for damage while he pushes kick twice and does as much damage as I did with 5 buttons. sucks to be scrub.
Why do some one-links feel easier than others?
For example, Makoto's s. mp s. mp feels far easier than Ryu's cr. lp cr. hk. Additionally DeeJay's cr. lp into cr. mk I can get almost all the time. Are there reasons for this? Or is my understanding of my character's frame data outdated?
Some links just feel better because of the recoveries of the move, sometimes the recovery of a move (and then the start up of the next) coincides with how your fingers want to move
Gotta guess correctly and not get knocked down. It's a really shitty matchup but you'll have to stay alert of everything. And don't throw fireballs a bunch or he'll qbomb it to hell
Ayy I stopped coming here a couple months ago. What did I miss (regarding fighting games in general, not this general)?
>thinking there are no mexican meme characters in KoF
I main him in '02
The west coast and the east coast didn't get along that well. Nobody liked fanatiq or smoothviper, Everyone was cocky and loud, all the bad players were constantly on the good player's dicks. Everybody had a pocket santhrax or scrub to counter pick. If you fucked up Cable's guard break or ahvb you'd get laughed at.
Iron Man was virtually unexplored and nobody realized combofiend was argueably top 3 best team in the game. No white people were good at it outside of Mixup, almost no japs played and if they did they always played either juggernaut or storm.
Almost nobody outside of Sanford and xecutioner could do sentinel reflys, and everybody played on that Ricky Martin custom mix. And top 16 was generally the same at every tournament.
Its kind of the same now, except now Khaos wins everything and his cheerleaders are constantly on his dick. And Iron Man is everywhere and people are realizing that he deserves to be called top tier.
Just watch SBIII and some 2004ish money matched on Preppy and you'll get a sense of what it was like.
since people asked for a updated version
here it is!
ah, i see. i was wondering because whenever i hear some OG players worship the days of mvc2 like it was the golden age of the fgc and it could do no wrong.. But then again that might be 'cause MvC was a thing but still.
Too bad she's dead
>tfw SNK will never nerf boss characters so they can be tournament viable
Marvel 2 still has a following, its a lot friendlier but not played as much as it used to be, so maybe that's what they were referring to. When it was a main game.
I forgot about Josh360, fuck me. Legit top 3 mvc2 players right now, learned a lot from watching him and he really took combofiend above and beyond and is argueably better than combofiend was in his prime. Combofiend was amazing, but I feel josh is just on another level with team synergy.
Romento is good, but he's far from the best. He loses to all of EC's best and I can name at least 10-15 players better than him.
All 3 are scrub magnet characters. Daimon is the only one who requires some thought to play tbh.
Try switching Iori and Athena for none shoto-like characters, pic related.
All I ever wanted to do was meme on my opponents with farts at the end of the round/match. C. Zero could just be the EX version of Zero anyway because he'd have to lose his strikers to be competitively viable. Igniz is ok but his design is lame tbh.
What if it's a world-changing idea, akin to achieving sentience? I wish I was joking but please watch.
Mid range poking is the best position for him. He's got a lot of moves to cover a lot of options like a mid/high counter (low hits just go through the counter), ability to absorb projectiles and choose when to send them back (depending on the attack strength you chose), command grab special and super, a decent overhead, etc.
He's mostly unchanged from the original 98 since the main change to him is making his QCF (x2) P (pic related) super more consistent when hitting airborne opponents.
Use this to look at a glace of what he's like:
This YT looks shows combos from 98 but they all still work in 98UMFE. Skip to about 2:50 to get to the actual combos.
>And people fucking hate me by and large- the fucking dumb people who can't figure me out
>I'm saying let's all respect each other
What is narcissistic defense and a chronic lack of self awareness? Not to mention your schizotypal pattern recognition in finding random comedians intelligent, which somehow validates BPD as a symptom of genius. You said nothing, you're pathetically needy and attention seeking, and you should cut yourself. Also,
>dating chan sluts
Cammy isn't even best street fighter though.
You seriously need to get some better taste in fighting girls. That is some generous art, Makoto is ugly. And Morrigan is simply a massive slut.
Hagejin is in the honorable mentions.
There are too many good zangief players.For now Snake Eyez has the results but to be specific he's there because of his evo2014 performance
I do plan on updating the list in time~
I actually don't really like any of the sf girls very much. Makoto is just my favorite out of them. Then chun and sakura.
You are a massive slut.
>one hand shake with Taylor Swift
I'm kind of upset that you like her
Because they have to ruin everything for all other races because that's their "politically correct" way of showing how butthurt they are at all the non whites.
It's just my theory but it's probably true tbh.
Typical white response.
I'm from Americlapistan and it's true AF here, hipsters are especially the worst. I actually prefer to hang out with whites from the south because they are at least honest about their hatred.
appealing to one's prejudices, emotions, or special interests rather than to one's intellect or reason.
attacking an opponent's character rather than answering his argument.
>go back to your mud hut, bongobongo
>not an ad hominem
yes, can you not see how this is not ad hominem? the guy basically insulted himself but saying it was
surely you can figure this one out? you got the definition here.
whatever, fighting games!
you'd better get ready for a lot of braindead stuff in sf5
weve already seen retarded fireball spam and decapre2.0
capcom said they want to make each character very unique in sf5, you dont get that with honest PISSS footsies
nash vs decapre is gonna be a 6-4 matchup in cappy's favour i'm calling it right now
i'm sorry anon but i don't think decummy is ever going to be in another game
you're mistaken anon, it's like putting yun and not putting yang, knowing crapcom the twin dolls are together forever now in every future game
Nothing, perfectly balanced games are boring as fuck
only idiots who didn't really play it or have an obsession with some low tier character think mvc2 should be rebalanced
"It's happening! Thanks to your generous contributions, the /r/Kappa campaign to send Infiltration, Kitasenju DJ and Kazunoko to Final Round 18 on March 20 to 22 in Atlanta has successfully reached its second goal -- Kitasenju DJ will be making his North American Ultra Street Fighter 4 major tournament debut at the event!
Kitasenju DJ believes that he is the best Dee Jay player in the world"
i need you deejay
Not quite, he has shit pokes but strong counter-pokes. Unlike halfscreen autofootsies such as Vega's and Bison's normals, counterpokes take skill to use since they usually have poop range. Against someone who knows how to whiff punish, you can't expect to throw out s.HP and win. You might with autofootsies characters like Vega and Bison since they're stuff is too fast to punish on reaction
That's the thing. A Dudley player has to read the normal, space himself, and press it at the right time to successfully counterpoke. If his read is wrong, he just threw out one of his many million frame recovery normals. If a Dudley player is throwing out s.HP randomly, wait and sweep it, it has a million years of recovery and is an easy reaction whiff punish.
and a knockdown which can lead to oki depending on what you whiff punish with (which should ideally be a sweep). You use that knockdown to set up ebin mixups and kill him as he is trying to do to you.
The times between the button oresses are different. Like, Vega's cr.lp>cr.lp has a different pause than does his cr.lp>cr.mp. that's why his hit confirm is hard, because you have to teach your muscles two different 1frame links for that combo
Dudley combats autofootsies with his own autofootsies.
Most people who play him will throw out as many random pokes as characters like Bison and Vega.
Any character can be played "with skill" as you say, i.e. you can't get away with just sonic booms with guile at high-intermediate levels but people at low-level complain love to complain about how braindead and easy he is to use.
Dudley is a good character all around save for his ability to do 300+ damage combos from a counterpoke 1/3 of the screen away and you can't really punish it unless you have a fireball or a forward moving sweep. Sure you can say he has a hard time getting in but you can say the same thing about a couple of the characters without fireballs. Fireballs aren't even an issue for Dudley as he can just use ducking and ultra 1 to get past them.
why do i even bother trying
fuck this thread
IGN rates DOA5 last round a 7 because "it's good but it has too much fanservice"
that's like, legit the dumbest thing I've read all day
uniel froze up so i just restarted the ps3 only to get that message. so now i have to go find whoever i gameshared it with to see if i can do it again or else ill just have to buy the english one
I play Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting for the SNES against my brother every now and then. He generally just spams hadouken as Ryu and shoryukens if I jump towards him. Aside from imitating his strategy (which has been somewhat successful, but is very boring), what are some tactics to counter this?
I had the same situation happen. When I reformatted I still had the user accounts linked on my system, so I just resigned into his account and got it. Sometimes it'll say its 'reformatting' but it ends up fine
>the feeling of losing to a lag tactic kof player who just mashed invincible specials and throws
Lol, I didn't know avatarfagging was against the rules.
How is fatfeels still here
Damn I hope I don't get banned or anything like that, cruel irony.
It could be that chilean FG player, who's probably best know for his big body team in MvC3. I think he uses Vice, Raiden and Maxima. Can't remember his name though.
