>>
>>31876927
This is a bit of a meme.
From what I understand the beta has changed a lot since it first started, so beta playeres will likely need to adapt somewhat too.
Also, it's not a particularly complicated game.
>>
>>31876927
There's legit only like 20 people that even sort of know what they're doing, maybe 6 that are at all good
At least from what I've seen
You're going to be no more behind than you would be with people who had no specific experience with this game but were already better than you at fighting games in general.
>>
>>31876960
>beta *players
time for bed.
>>
>>31876927
This would be somewhat of an issue whether or not there was a beta. You're always going to have people playing who play other fgs and come in with a way higher level of starting skill. The pool of good beta players is pretty small though and most of them are pretty friendly people so they'll probably be happy to help you out if you run into them.

Just find people to play with who are around your skill level, or are willing to help you improve instead of just stomping you into the ground with no feedback. Even if there's not a huge playerbase there's still going to be plenty of new people to play with.

>>31876949
It's got animals in it.
No but really, it borrows a few things from some of those games, like the magic system from BB, and there are some character mechanics that are pretty obviously inspired by other characters (Velvet's wind is basically what Rachel in BB had). Other than that it doesn't really feel that much like any of them though other than on a basic level.
>>
>>31876927
I wouldn't worry too much. I don't have beta access, but I play some fightan now and then and I've got to say what I saw in that beta tournament really didn't amaze me. Even in grand finals people dropped their combos left and right and did random ass unsafe ultras. If this is the cream of the crop of the people who spent half a year playing the beta, I don't think it's something impossible to catch up to.

In general fighting game skills transfer well from game to game. That's probably not much of a consolation if you're new to the genre but you don't have to fear the guy who never played another fighter and then spend 100 hours on the TFH beta more than you have to fear the guy who spend a considerable amount playing other fighters and then has a small couple of hours of training mode with TFH to get up to speed. A guy like SonicFox could jump into the game and kick everyone's ass in minutes, just learning simple ass combos and then never drop them, not doing random unsafe attacks and consistently punishing everyone for their mistakes. Guess what I want to say is, this phenomenon where you jump into a new game and it appears there are tons of killers from day one, that's not exclusive to games that have been long running. Just the longer a game is running, the more of the weak players jump ship, or they become good players over time.

So for something uplifting, when the game comes out it'll be swamped with other newcomers, you can be sure of that. You'll definitely have a load of people on your level early on, whatever level that is, even if you run into someone more experienced now and again. The best time to get into a game and the genre in general is whenever a new game comes out, that's when everybody jumps in. Don't focus on the people who are on the top spots of the leaderboards, you have a long journey ahead until you can match them no matter what.
>>
>>31876949
I just loaded the beta up for the first time today and being a fan of GG and BB I can say that it's nowhere near as complicated as those games. Pretty easy to pick up aside from Pom who as a puppet character I can't wrap my head around at all. Never played SG so I can't speak to that.

It seems like a good entry level game... slightly more involved than DBFZ, but not totally inaccessible to a newbie. Hopefully the tutorials will be good.

No. One of those has not been made yet and I sure as shit do not feel like it. Off the top of my head Tianhou has pokemon references to charizard X and rapisash as well as the dragon from Mulan. Also a white dragon with blue eyes.
Paprika, Arizona and Velvet are the absolute hardest for me to figure but one of Pap's is very obviously the Hulk. Many of them are based on drinks like coffee types and Velvet has one called mulled wine. Also known as glögg its a nothern european treat.
Pom has a Johnny Bravo palette, the sheep pokemon mareep, Lamb from LOL and some others I forget and fuck you look it up yourself.
Oleander is my main and one of the easiest for me to spot. 3 pony references in one, Chrysalis, Trixie and PON-3. She has a pokemon one based on the zebra pokemon zebstrika and its even called "5th Gen" which I thought was cute. I love how the palettes have names like Paprika's Hulk one being called "Smash!"
The other really stand out are one based on Princess Midna and the cartoon version of Raven from Teen Titans.
one other every character has is a light greenish blue one with pink bits. Its based on a palette of Twilight Sparkle in Fighting Is Magic that was famously hated by a lot of people and I think its pretty funny that they not only brought it back but gave it to every character. I think Oelander's also references Twilight in its name but I am not in game at the moment, im on 4chan and fucking lazy.
Hope that helps you fags out. There are probably a ton I am missing. I am surprised I did not see ones referencing Melty Blood or Skullgirls since Mane6 likes those games.

Have fun with the game and here's to a successful release and lifespan.

>>31879493
Yeah they've said multiple times all the cardboard will be gone by release. They really don't have much left to do comparatively, just Oleander teleports and traps, Fred when he's out, some Pom dog stuff, and Tianhuo's supers. I'm pretty sure the beta build lags behind their current build anyway so it's probably not the best indicator.

Yeah and when there were going to be delays, they said so. They've made no indication thus far that there are any issues with animations, in fact the latest patch notes said they were just about finished.

Tianhuo is kind of dissapointing compared to the other characters IMO; the others have alot of character to them, but not really picking up anything from tianhuo. Her lines just don't entertain, compared to velvet and oleander or arizona.

Plus her gameplay looks to be an inferior version of arizona's.
>>
>>31883875
>Plus her gameplay looks to be an inferior version of arizona's.
As a beta-tester, I can tell you they are as far apart as two "close quarters" fighters can be.
Arizona is all about frame traps, reads, (shitty)50/50's, and loads of upfront damage. Tianhuo is more akin to Chip from Guilty Gear - absurd mobility, heavy pressing, mixups, but her damage isn't that high and it's spread across long-ass combos.
>>
>>31883875
She sounds more African or Arabic than Chinese.
She plays VERY different from Arizona though.
>>
>>31883255
Guess since she isn't in the game, Parasoul got it.
>>
>>31883875
She's pretty fun to watch when someone actually knows how to play her since she winds up with some pretty ridiculous combos, and I'm in love with her lv2 super animation.

I think her "honorable" personality leaves less room for comedy overall than some of the other characters though. I'm interested to see if they're able to address that at all in story mode and what not.
>>
>>31884640
its cool to have a serious pony and all, its just there needs to be some real force behind her personality to go with it.
I don't get much of a feeling of "honorable warrior" without reading her backstory.

I think she's meant to be comically serious since she's a soldier and (by quite a margin) the oldest character on the cast who was tasked with the protection of the entire world and her rivals to this are.

>Someone who doesn't want to fight.
>Literally a 1 year old.
>A cthulhu cultist (and she's probably the most reasonable one of the bunch).
>A deer with the nose so up that she's actually pulling a 360 and smelling her own buttfluff (also, might be some clashes considering Reine is the literal center of the world but the Longmas might feel otherwise).
>Whatever the fuck the alpaca is.

>>31884648
Not that I disagree with you but I don't think there is much you can do outside of the story mode for that, maybe manerisms and animations (and taunts/dances) during a fight can tell a lot about some characters but on her case the only thing you know is that she practices martial arts (and really likes to wiggle).

What are you saying? Look at fighting is magic. If that had been given the go-ahead to be an official FiM licensed game, a budget equivalent to what TFH got, and a bit of marketing/promotion help from Hasbro, it'd have sold more than enough to make back its tiny budget with lots to spare.

They could also just give the license to make games to a publisher like Ubisoft. They handle the marketing and development while Hasbro could either assist in the development or just sit back and let the money flow. I mean they are already doing it with Ubisoft's sister company, Gameloft in mobile games. Why not do something like what South Park did and do something with Ubisoft?

I got some fundamentals down, but I'm not all that familiar with Skullgirls. I've got a decent Gief in SF4 and 5, but not too into hyperfighting or a lot of anime(barring Guilty Gear).

>>31888317
I'm not that great at fighting games.
My last fighting game experience was in the PS3 days, the only game i had was DB:Xenoverse.
Pretty much DBZ fanfic: the game, but at least was fun.
The only thing i didn't like much was "go saiyan/female buu, or go home".
In PS2 i had DB:BT2 and 3. I also had "the warriors" and "defjam: fight for NY". But i feel "beat them up" experience is different of "fighter" experience.
As for the lobbies, i reccomend doing those in day 1, after a couple of hours of the game being out
>>
Fucking seriously, we just went from a post every few hours to multiple anons talking, this not being on /v/ is real dumb.

>>31888421
It used to be an MLP fan game, so in their eyes it still is, which means it goes here.

>>31888387
I've been out of the loop, and mostly post on 4+4chan, so I don't understand why mods would care in the CURRENT YEAR about deleting topics of this game. Seems a bit ridiculous, I figured the whole brony trend was over, and that original quarantine was due to massive amounts of pony shitposting.
>>31888421
Basically this, but also because the rules are 'still being upheld' or something. Get in contact with mods, have a nice talk with them, I'm not a /mlp/ poster but this seems ridiculous

Seriously, that's pretty much an entirely different genra of game, TFH is a competitive 2D fighter, following the same general principals of games like Street Fighter.

Pick up the new BD game if you're into it, that's actually competitively viable, but that's more hyperfighting than traditional. More akin to MvC:3 or Skullgirls.
>>
>>31888421
/v/ is a lost cause, shitposters won long ago and none of the mods give a shit any more. There's no real desire to actually improve anything, they just take the easiest way out, which in this case is letting a couple extreme autists hold them hostage by threat of shitposting.
I doubt even the autists actually give a shit anymore either, it's just another excuse to throw autistic fits and get attention.

>>31888413
a bunch of people just have to email Hiro, or the mods in the IRC or whatever. It's banned thanks to an archaic holdover from when it was an MLP game fucking 3 years ago or whatever.

It should be open and shut. Show them the game and ask them what part of it is MLP. Because none of it is. They won't (or can't) even say it's BASED on the show. For all intents and purposes it's an entirely new franchise not even affiliated with Hasbro.

4chan is weird, every board has its little quirks that you need to lurk for a bit to learn that doesn't make sense if you just take their descriptions at face value. For a while DBZ threads just got outright deleted on /a/ since it was seen as a normie anime thanks to Toonami and its dub popularity in the west. I think the excuse was that posting them was "trolling". I think you can make them again now thanks to Dragon Ball Super airing but for an outsider they'd find it weird that an anime thread was not allowed on the anime board.
>>
>>31888527
I'm fucking autistic and meant DB. You were talking about DragonBall games earlier, and an actually competitively viable game has come out with Dragonball FighterZ.

And, while Sklullgirls is kind of a good idea, the tag team mechanics might mess you up. When I say hyperfighting, I'm talking about a game where you play as 3 characters at once(Which is what DBFZ and MvC:3 are).

Skullgirls is a weird medium, in that you can choose one character to play as, 2 characters or 3. It's made on the same engine as TFH, so I guess I'd recommend it if you want to get a feel for what its like. But honestly, learning a hyperfighter's a completely different ballgame than learning a basic 1v1 fighter, that's why I compared it to Street Fighter instead of Skullgirls more.

The Tutorial of Skullgirls is very extensive actually, but it doesn't teach you everything. Honestly, there's so much shit if you seriously want to get into a fighting game, but you can always just let loose and have fun if it ends up being too overwhelming. You'll probably get bodied in online play though.
>>
>>31888565
You're overestimating the amount of attention the game is going to generate. They'll just delete the few threads that pop up until people stop making them.

Sonicfox is actually really good at a ton of fighting games because he's some kind of savant, but /v/ likes to meme that he's actually shit because he doesn't take first place in every single game at every single tournament.

>>31889509
Well, out of my interactions with him, that's the feeling I get.
He picks up a fresh/niche game, quickly learns how to play it and performs incredibly well in the context of his opponents simply not knowing the counterplays.
Now, I by no means try to downplay him - finding strat faster than pretty much anyone else is a huge fucking achievement. What I'm talking about - that won't work as well in games with hyperactive communities that overoptimize everything - like Guilty Gear or especially Street Fighter.
There was that argument about Arizona having pretty much zero safe pressing tools thus resorting to relying exclusively on unsafe frametraps to open up her opponent. His main argument for her being perfectly fine and even overpowered was that her blockstrings while unsafe are hard enough to punish and her vortex is ambiguous enough for him to call it "true 50/50" when it isn't. All of these rely exclusively on the opponent not knowing Arizona well enough to exploit those weaknesses. And, to be fair, exploiting them will require a considerable amount of research and practice. Yet, that would be just scratching the surface of the autistic dedication, say, Street Fighter IV had. He doesn't judge the games in the heavily optimized context neither he really plays such games.
>>
>>31889509
Sonicfox is sort of a big fish in a small pond
He is extremely talented, he's got a gift for finding degenerate stuff and figures out "the meta" of a game extremely fast, so he starts playing the real game while everyone else is still floundering around trying to figure out stuff. And on top of that, he's got very consistent decision making and never really has personal weaknesses against specific strategies.
But he also pretty much only plays games with, relatively, young competitive scenes. Most of his winnings come from NRS games rather than stuff like SF or GG where people having been perfecting all the tiny details involved in being good for decades. Most of that is just that he's not japanese though.
He did have a pretty good SFV run too, iirc.

it looks like they did constant dev videos on their work for a long time, and it drops off at a certain point. Probably because the game went into alpha/beta under c&d or something, but I'm just speculating
I'm not sure how they'd really drive up hype and attention outside of word of mouth. What COULD you really do with a game like that? I dunno, it might get the youtube treatment and plenty of people backed it, so it wont be DOA. It may become that way after a while though. It's got a better chance than SG, with the simplified system though

>>31890331
it was half an experiment, do you think I'm sad or something?
>>
>>31890065
The dev videos stopped once the backer forums and beta started, since updates mostly moved to the worklogs and patch notes on the forums. Obviously it was originally going to release far sooner after beta started but gamedev is hard. They've always been pretty communicative, it's just you had to be following the game enough to know to go to the forum at that point.

They've partnered with Humble Bundle (who have already put up some more money for post-goat development) so I imagine they'll help out with advertising. It'll probably be easy for them to slip in on various bundles and stuff as well and get more exposure that way.

Anyone who thinks this is going to be some kind of smash hit is going to be let down though. It's probably going to end up a niche fg with a small but dedicated community, much like Skullgirls is. But the the fgc is probably the best place for a niche game to prosper (relatively speaking) so I think it will work out.

Tara Strong sounds like a bad imitation of Applejack, she breaks into her Twilight voice on a few lines and it's kinda jarring
Oleander's VA isn't good imo and it sounds like someone is trying too hard to sound posh and failing pretty badly at it
Paprika's is alright
I agree with>>31890854 about Tianhuo, sounds forced
I haven't heard enough of Velvet or Pom to judge so I can't really say anything about them
Honestly, I'm not particularly impressed by any of VAs, but I guess I won't really be focusing on them when I'm playing
>>
>>31890844
The only voice I don't really like is Tian, because she sounds way less deep and commanding than what I expected. Also, a big chunk of the (6 people) cast are on the high pitched side so that could get grating after a while.

Velvet a best tho, like everything she does.

For me it's usually "Hey Them's Fightin' Herds is coming out in a bit, you heard of that?"
"No, what's that?"
"It's this indie fighter, it used to be a My Little Pony fighting game"
"OH I'VE HEARD OF THAT haha no of course I won't play it you faggot"
>>
>>31889509
I was going to say that earlier but I was afraid it would sound too much like bait

SonicFox only ever really plays games that have no real competition. I mean he's one of the highest FGC earners so not like you could give him shit for it but he always dominates in weebshit and dead games and all of the "prestiguous" titles, aka anything Capcom, he passes on or does shit at once he runs into other strong competitors. I think he's highly overrated and all of his adamant fans painting him as the ultimate fighting game genius just happen to be part of the niche communities where he's a star.

Just look at TFH. People are already licking his balls just on the basis that he's a professional player and bothered to do some testing for M6. I mean yeah he's fucking good, he makes a living playing these games, but he really really isn't anywhere near the guys who make SFV finals, that's just how it is.
>>
>>31891111
Point taken, but unless a bunch of japs show up out of the blue to dominate this game, who's going to stop him? He's already got a huge advantage going in by being a tester.
>>
>>31891111
>>31891139
Well, to be fair - no one has to. If he wants to win a TFH tourney and is capable of doing so, even if he has an advantage - it's all good for the game publicity. And TFH is a thing that needs publicity first and foremost.
>>
>>31890415
>They've always been pretty communicative, it's just you had to be following the game enough to know to go to the forum at that point.

You really had to be a backer, the publicly available parts of the forum are ridiculously devoid of any official information and they hardly update the website anymore either. And really even for "regular" backers who didn't get the beta, information was sparse with like three short dev updates or something since the beta started half a year ago. They moved the entirety of updates to the beta backer parts of the forum, where really only a fraction of people have access to.

In general the beta exclusive part of the forum made no sense ever since the NDA on the beta was removed. Everyone was "allowed" to be let in on all the information anyway, might as well give people easy access to it
>>
>>31891292
Yeah I'm a backer so I guess I didn't really notice how bad it got for people who didn't have access.

At any rate, game's out in a week so it's kind of a wash at this point.

Weebs will call that a dead game and shitpost.
>>
>>31891766
It's not about being "dead" it's more about being more casual.
Not in a sense "I had 1000BP in SFIV, thus I can beat MKX champion with my eyes shut", but in regards to how hardcore the game's community is. Even if an arbitrary pro player for such a game possesses all the necessary skill and dedication to go as far or even further than the pro players of games which are usually considered "hardcore" - the community itself doesn't really support it.
You have way fewer people digging through the framedata, finding strats, optimizing options, finding counterplays, etc. And "way fewer" meaning "by orders of magnitude". Respectively, the online playerbase (as in the resource of the vast majority of a diverse practice a player can get) will be way less skilled on the average, thus providing little challenge and motivation for self-improvement.

>>31891813
I agree with all of that, NRS games do great among casual button mashers but as much as it makes me sound like the stereotypical capcomshill, the competitive community in SFV is WORLDS ahead of that of, say, Injustice 2.

The truth is NRS games are just simply less fun to play on a competitive level. I spent some time with all the recent ones. It's hard to pinpoint EXACTLY what it is, but between the way the normals are set up, the way movement works and how characters often times have the possibility to force advantageous situations in ways that can hardly be responded to on reaction alone, it often times feel like they forego the need to play the tense and reaction based neutral game of other 2d fighters in favor of the guy with the better "reads" and technical skills getting in and winning the round.

As a result people don't play them as much competitively. I mean, the competitive communities that these games have, they don't sustain themselves. If it isn't for NRS and advertisers pouring in bonus pots, the tourneys would be empty. The second the money stops flowing, the scenes evaporate. Have you ever noticed how rare it is to find both Injustice and MK at the same tournament...?

It's clearly enough of it's own thing at this point though. This is just the proper thing you do, when creating a commercial product. The old game wasn't a product. They're probably pretty lax about it as well, I'm not sure who'd come along to steal their characters for anything but chances are they'd be pretty chill all things considered.

check out some combo vids and practice what they do by picking one thing and repeating it over and over. Wax on, wax off, etc. Take it in small chunks. Break it up by doing things like practicing blocking. Think of it like a work out. It wont be an instant transformation, it takes a lot of time to get adjusted to the genre. Treat yourself between practice by finding people online of your skill level, so you don't burn out on practice and you can try implementing what you've learned in a more serious environment. Never give up!

it'll block mids and lows, but not overheads/highs which you need to block standing

>>31895542
But I really don't know how to block though.
Is it a key bind or is it something else?
>>
Arizona is the top cow.
>>
>>31895544
you... hold back
you'll auto block when holding backwards. You can't do it while being hit, but hold back right before you do. You can hold down and back at the same time to crouch block, and you can transition between the two as you please/are being hit. When someone tries to leap at you, block normal, if they try to sweep, block low. The wind up or patterns help give it away and give you time to adapt. If they're grounded, it's always a safe bet to block low with the crouch block because 99% of attacks don't hit from above. I haven't played this game yet, but this is what I've heard and it's like a lot of other fighters.
Again, you can practice against AI by just not attacking and trying to block whatever they throw at you.
Hope this helps.

It's a shit situation, sure, but here's something that can help. Here's a 4chanx filter I use that basically turns /mlp/ into a dedicated TFH board assuming the threads are tagged in the subject properly:

# Filter all but TFH

It makes the board look like pic related so you don't have to deal with MLP faggotry. It's not ideal but it works.
>>
>>31895598
I believe they said voice recording was completely done at this point, so it's possible the lines just aren't hooked up in the current build since the intro/outro animations aren't done yet.

We're getting down to the wire here but I've also heard the beta client lags behind their current build, so it's possible it's all in the release build. Guess we'll see if we get any more patches this weekend, otherwise we'll find out next Thursday!
>>
>>31895369
Fighting games are a process of crushing your face against that one person who destroyed your self esteem until you actually learn why you are getting combo'd on the first place, then after learning that you learn to do combo.

Alternativelly, the AI in this game is kinda merciless, it's one of those games where easy is too easy but medium is too hard.

I can't see too many trashing the game once they start playing it, even if casually for views as a meme.

Should I just cave and get a fight pad? Them’s Fighting Herds is probably the first time I’ve followed the development of a fighting game completely and will buy day one, so I really feel like I should at least be gitting gud properly.
I heard you can even play games that aren’t fighting games on them. That’d be pretty neat.

>>31898972
It can definitely be worth it to get a stick. For example, launchers (3C) and DP motions on a square gate stick are easy as pie. I switched to save my thumbs the agony of using a Dpad for inputs. The thing is, if you've never used one before it's like trying to ride a bike for the first time. You definitely need to practice and commit to it.

I do play other games on stick that require precise inputs too. Dustforce is one example. If you can map buttons in the game it should work fine.
>>
>>31898972
>fightpad
A specifically designed pad for fighters isn't going to be much different than whatever it is you're using now, unless you're on some glitchy input dropping chinese pad. Do you mean an arcade stick? I don't necessarily find sticks easier, but they're much softer on the hands. I can play with a pad for an hour or so before I need to rest my hands, whereas with a stick I can play for days straight with no issues.

Thread was alive for 5 hours, and then was deleted by moderation. There was a lot of shitposting about it being pony related, so I believe a massive amount of reports were the main cause. However, there are no rules on 8v about pony. There are no rules that should have applied to have the thread banned. Quite the opposite exists in fact, in rule 8: "If you are deliberately shitting up, constantly derailing a certain thread, or excessively using an avatar persona, you may be banned and your posts may be deleted."
This would have applied to the shitposters in thread, but I believe moderation was on their side. I tried to keep game discussion going, by replying to every serious post about the game, and some basic discussion did occur but not at length. I'm mostly ashamed at the way some anons handled the thread, considering I used 8v a ton back at the exodus. The climate has seriously changed, and now everything but the usual thread is flamed or called a shill.
I'm going to be experimenting more possibly in the future to see what sorta results I get with certain types of threads, and see if I can bait out shitposting to point out how serious an issue it is. You didn't hear this from me though.

That was the same hurdle that the FIM movie needed to overcome too, and we all know how well that turned out.

Probably going to main Arizona. She looks straightforward and simple.
The only fighting games I actually legit play are Smash bros games because I fucking suck at traditional SF games.
I main link in Smash bros though. At first it was just because Link was my favorite, but then It turned out he was more or less the type of character I wanted, decent ranged game to annoy and fairly powerful up close-- I hate Fragile speedsters and super slow pieces of lard characters, so he was nicely in the mid.

How so? I aint into pony, but I assume this game wants the pony audience AS WELL as more people who might not necessarily be into pony. I doubt the mlp movie was targeted towards an audience outside of it's core group of little children. Exposure through... I'm not sure what you imply it would've been exposed through, but I assume youtube- wouldn't have made anyone but the core audience and bronies see it.
Maybe I misunderstand you.

The MLP movie failed to get a children's audience due to the stigma of MLP meaning a ton of little kids didn't want to go see it, and adults were also turned off due to the 80s MLP stigma.

that left only fans (bronies and little girl fans) and we just weren't a large enough audience to support it.
Same deal here, only fans will be willing to give this a chance due to the MLP stigma.

Their projections was 100 million; they barely made a profit by contrast. There's a reason we're not getting a G4 movie, and the fact that the FIM movie made half of what they were expecting is a big part of that.
>>
>>31900472
it did make a profit though. Not nearly as big as they were pitching in investor meetings, but it cost very little to make.
I can't be bothered to look up the numbers, but it was made for like 5M and earned ~50M worldwide, not counting merch which has always been their main priority.
That's not "there's no demand" it's "suits have no fucking idea what they're doing, as usual"

Other than bug fixes and what you mentioned, the two main things are:
-Casual ranks in pixel lobby (i.e. rank only goes up over time, there will also be an actual competitive rank that tracks skill coming as well)

I don't know much about the different brands. I've always used Hori sticks as the both the sticks and buttons have always felt good quality to me.

Arguably too late for that. The movie didn't do too well, so the amount Hasbro could demand for the license is diminished.

Why you gotta take it so personally? TFH looks enjoyable and will clearly be fun to play, it's just obviously not as technically deep or rewarding as Skullgirls. Only reason I compared the two was because of the hat bonus in the lobby, and because it makes a good game to segue into if you feel like getting into deeper fighting games since they were made on the same engine and play pretty similarly. You pony fucks really need to learn to control your autism.

But the games really don't play that similarly? Just on a very basic level, even apart from differing combo systems, TFH lacks the multiple characters and Skullgirls doesn't rely on magic mechanics for it's characters. I mean I get you're pushing for SG but why not play both, they're different enough.

>>
>>31906892
There are no infinites in Skullgirls, the combo limiting mechanics work exactly the way they're intended.
I actually prefer TFH's system, but you can't correctly claim that SG's is nonfunctional when it does what it's supposed to.
What it doesn't do is limit resets at all, so noobs getting stomped by experienced players look like infinite combos because the noob doesn't know the points where he can escape. It's all fully intentional though. MikeZ likes resets.

TFH does have a much more "sensible" system though that puts a much harder limit on overall combo+reset length.

Let's not bullshit anyone, where in SG you do endlessly long combos into retarded resets, in TFH you do endlessly long combos into knockdown and retarded wakeup oki.

I'm really torn as to wether or not I can recommend this game to genre newcomers in good conscience. Noobs will still get very very spectacularly stomped by people who know what they're doing, in a way that will leave them with no idea why they even lost.

>>
>>31907556
I get the feeling you don't have much experience with fighting games.
Noobs are going to get stomped by experienced players no matter what. If they don't, the game must have some pretty serious issues.
Combos in TFH are low/average length for anime games. Some characters can get up there, but it requires meter for anything unusual, which is standard. Damage is also low/average, with the absolute most degenerate slightly realistic combos not doing more than ~50%, with 25 to 35 being infinitely more common.
The game does have a lot of oki situations, but it's also way easier to escape then most oki heavy games. You've got defensive tools on the level of a 3v3 fighter with pushblock, dead angles, instant blocks, strong invincible techs, universal AA command normals and huge throw tech windows, but offense is average at best. Even watching relatively good players beat up on relatively inexperienced players, they almost always manage to escape the corner at least once or twice and get to play until they lose neutral again. In Guilty Gear or Blazblue or Skullgirls the noob doesn't get to play at all.
If anything, defense is too good, although so far it's looking well balanced.

What would you be suggesting instead? I'm curious.
>>
>>31907917
Keyboard is great, basically just a less optimal hitbox.
If your keyboard is shit your only issue might be ghosting. I think there are websites that can check ghosting issues for you.
Even then you can probably work around it by adjusting your keybinds. As long as you can press down or up and left or right, and two attack buttons at the same time you should be good.
>>
>>31907946
>I get the feeling you don't have much experience with fighting games.
well thanks that you still take the time to educate me

>What would you be suggesting instead? I'm curious.
Basically, people play Street Fighter V instead, where if I spend thirty minutes to show you how to block, sweep, throw, antiair with crouch fierce and throw a fireball, you have a sizeable portion of all the tools you will ever need and can play against people with ten times your experience and still have a good understanding of what decisions made you lose and need to be made differently next time.

Anime games with their 20 hit combos that take 30% of your life obscure a lot of your mistakes. Your first instinct might be that you're losing because you yourself haven't learned those big 20 hit combos yet, and I guess there's some truth to that too. Your grasp on when to block and when not to block isn't that meaningful when all you can do is land stray sweeps, but when you mistime a single meaty and your opponent lands a mashed out jab it nets him 30% of your life and corner carry across the entire stage. So people sit down and practice combos and mash them out against others and before you know it you see people who have a 50 hours of playtime, yet still can't tech your tick throw when you do it for the tenth time, still do the same exact blockstring and are unable to change it up, even when it doesn't do anything for them after you've seen it three times, still mash jab on every other wakeup and basically let you win for free as soon as you pick up on their specific brand of bad habits. But hey at least the combo game is on point. Until you really feel "in control" in a game like this, as a first timer, a LOT of time can pass.

I wasn't trying to be insulting, but you have the exact same list of complaints that every smash player that picks up a fighting game for the first time whines about. DBFZ threads were full of them. People were actually bitching about getting 100 to 0ed by autocombos with "nothing they could do." Calling things that aren't infinites infinites is one of the most common signifiers and you almost never see anyone who has any real knowledge of the genre doing it.

Your points about TFH vs SFV are more legitimate, but at that point it's basically just "anime games vs SF." They're kind of separate ecosystems, so I figure if someone wants to play SF they'll just play SF.
If someone wants to learn an anime game, there straight up isn't an easier entry than TF, that I've ever seen. I used to suggest Melty Blood for a lot of the same reasons TFH is easy to pick up, but TFH is more forgiving and has way less obscure mechanics.
Even with SF it takes hours to actually get at all comfortable with fighting games. Picking up a super basic bnb in tfh isn't really any harder than learning how to move and attack generally, most characters have a very basic ABC launcher ABC style thing they can do that is good enough to play the game for real. Compared to how complicated even SFV is just to understand basic inputs and movements for people that have never touched a fg before it's not that different. Any new player is going to have to spend a couple hours in training mode just practicing doing stuff anyway, might as well turn on a level 1 cpu and practice doing stuff like jumping in and confirming into a really simple combo. You're going to want to be doing that even in SF.
At the end of the day, hitting random buttons in SFV is more rewarding than TFH so I suppose the most basic level is easier to pick up, but you're going to be investing roughly the same amount of time to get to even "beginner" level. and honestly SFV is kinda dull, I think TFH is more fun

Not the guy you're arguing with but you sound like an absolute moppet.
