I'm just learning how to into fighting games properly, and I'm finding Jack-o to be the one I'm most successful with against the people online. Plus, her moveset is just funny to troll my local friends with.
Is it a newbie trap to main her? I feel like she has a low skill ceiling?
>>
>>377443558
No character in gg has a low skill ceiling, but yeah she kinda gives bad habits to newbies with stuff like direction specials and some of her most braindead normals like 3H or 6H, also alot of people dont know how to deal with minion preassure and end uo killing themselves, but better players wont die so easily or just don let you set up them, but otherwise shes preety good for beginners and if you like her then keep playing her

>>377443558
there are no characters who are traps to main, the closest thing are trap tactics that only work against bad players, like doing jack-o slide constantly when it's pretty vulnerable if they block it

>>
>>377444231
sol, ky, axl, leo, etc are all low skill ceiling retard drool on stick player level.
>>
>>377452729
she's either top tier or just below top tier
>>
>>377452729
She's really good. Strong normals, pressure, and unblockables. She's easily one of the best characters in the game.
>>
>>377442786
Well, she is still in a lot of pain almost every day, she lost an arm and an eye and while she's given up on revenge she still hasn't forgiven what happened and the crushing weight of it all is almost more then the few joys she still has in her life that she is too scared will also be taken from her.

I'd probably be constantly angry too.
>>
>>377452041
Do people give Sol, Leo, and the like shit because they're actually bad characters, or are they just butthurt at the playstyle?

I was thinking of starting off with Leo because he looks cool and not that hard to play, but I'll change if he's just going to teach me bad habits instead of fundamentals.
>>
>>377453526
sol and leo just have tools that are really difficult to deal with if you are new to the game and not familiar with them. an experienced player will be able to deal with them just fine. you might find yourself winning vs other new players faster but you're still gonna have to earn your wins beyond that.

>>
>>377455881
he is low tier but one of the best players in the world uses him. the game is pretty balanced so low tiers are definitely still usable even at a high level.

>>377453526
At some point, Leo, Sin, Sol and other "braindead" characters can't cut it anymore since people know what to expect from them, it's like a wall that you have to overcome in order to keep getting better. You can't solely rely on their unga bunga or retard damage playstyle and have to play smarter.
>>
>>377457873
I think it's safe to assume Bedman and Jack-o will be around for however long the Xrd series is simply because they already got the characters made and ready to go. Even Justice and Kliff were in XX and those guys died in the first game even.
Though if the series continues and they ever have to build the game again from scratch like the jump from XX to Xrd, ye, I don't see those two making that system jump.

>>377458741
Pretty much. At least from what I've seen, it becomes a matter of matchup knowledge, knowing your character and fundamentals and mindgames.

I had a friend that I practiced with regularly that mained Sin, he beat me easily when we started off but he quickly hit that plateau where he could no longer rely on Sin's high damage and couldn't keep up in areas that cost him matches.

I've been a Sol main for a long time. Rev2 doesn't even come close to the worst nerf he's ever gotten. I'm gonna start looking for subs though.

By this post alone you can say that she's mid tier at best.
It's an unspoken rule on the FGC to follow certain patterns when some characters gets called shit;
>top tier
(You)
>High tier
'"Seriously, this character has a ton of options or (insert strenght here)
>Mid tier
"You just need to put X amount of work and you'll be good" or some variation of this

"Well yes, but this character can (insert gimmick here)" or "just get better"

Besides the 5k, I wouldn't even say Sol got nerfed. His new 6hs is great and leads into new combos midscreen and corner, and you can use it better for pressure, his air bandit revolver gains you massive frame advantage and he still has some of the best damage and stun in the game.
>>
So I spent about like 2 hours reading a lot of lore today because I've never played a GG game before and I have a question?

Why does KY fuck Dizzy and get her pregnant, but then leave his son out there for Sol to raise?

The wiki doesn't even explain why. it pretty much goes "he had a son and abandoned him anyways moving on" that's all it said.

Like did Dizzy tell him that she's pregnant and then he responds with "No way fag" as he drops everything that he's doing and does a backflip out a window?

What happened there exactly?

General population doesn't know Gears still wander around + gears age super fast. Think people will notice your 3 year old son is suddenly 5'9 with powers. So he sends Sin off with Sol to train/raise him. Not a bad deal for ky, Sol can fight and is technically a certified scientist.

>>377462717
A bunch of shit. The short answer is that most nations have laws dictating that gears are to be terminated on sight so he had Sol raise him to protect and hide him. It's really hard to keep it secret that your son is a gear when he ages to adulthood in a few years and has obscene strength. The longer reason involves Ky being super religious and being ashamed of having a kid out of wedlock (his name is Sin, get it?) but it's mostly just to keep him from being abducted or corrupted by shadowy conspiracy groups or to keep other countries from going to war with Illyria and their gear prince.

It's an odd game. It's like Izuka, but trying to be more like Smash Bros. It still has the tremendous issue of not having a block button and opting for blocking being back to whatever direction you're facing. They should've just copied smash bros, you can't have a 4 player fighting game otherwise.

Has dope minigames, though.
>>
>>377462240
Tiers are meaningless at beginner level, and regardless of tiers every character can overcome their bad matchups.

But seriously, Ram needs a lot of dedication since she has a lot to work with. If you just want a character who you can press buttons as a beginner and win often grab Sin or Sol.

This is not true. There will never be a basketball player that averages 50 points a game.

>>377488191
If you like her - play her. There's no such thing as bad character in GG.

>>377487975
Venom is supposedly one of the harder characters to learn in Xrd

She never got her revenge and her whole justification for her existence was taken away from her. Of course she's going to have a grudge about it.

>>377487676

GG has always been pretty balanced. Reload, AC, AC+R and Xrd have all been fine

BB is the arbitrary balance roulette game, probably because it has longer combos
>>

No it's already been stated why balance is always wonky. They like giving characters new tools at whims they balance by "FUN" over logic most times.

Baiken is in, thats 2 of the top 3 favorite characters of mine finally in Xrd.

But the first one still remains, where the fuck is ZAPPA?!
>>
>>377488626
Compared to the insane damage potential of other characters it was probably more balanced than zappa in +R.
>>
>>377488579
I actually prefer it that way. I'm sure I'd feel differently if I was a top/pro player, but a big part of the reason I love BB and P4A is because of how wild they are.
>>
>>377488890
You don't have to be a top player to realize how broken the game is. Just pick Bullet, Nine or any of the low tiers and go up against a random Nine player. Any player will do.
>>
>>377488579

Thats honestly a good way to go about balancing things. If the S-tier character is both fun to play and both fun to play against, him being really powerful isn't THAT huge of a problem.

If the character is overpowered to the point its not fun to play against him, then its nerfing time.

That's a bad way to balance things because you're catering to casuals. A casual might say Noel has too much invisibility frames and it's not fun so you know what Arcsys does, they nerf Noel into the ground. That's just one example.
>>
>>377489295
Eddie, Millie and Testament were the god tier. AC Slayer and Pot were stupid but not insane. Pot's slide head and stupid damage with FRC buster and Slayer with his BBU made them excel in mid and high level play with less effort than the top 3.

Why haven't they nerfed Millia into the ground then, but buffed her instead? She's the least fun character to fight against in the whole roster. Getting knocked down by her and basically losing the match right there and there isn't fun at all.

Why does this bitch get special treatment? Elphelt was blatantly broken in Xrd and she got hammered hard in the last game. Millia hasn't even got a slap on the wrist during this entire period. What fucking gives?

Ky and Sol will teach you fundamentals. Both are really good at it, while one is more zone-y, and the other is rushdown. I'd recommend learning one of those two, since they will force you to have solid fundamentals in order to achieve something.
With Ram, as long as you can convert one hit into death, you are good with her. Doing this is her gameplan, and you don't even need a solid neutral, since most people will drop their combos because of her hurtbox. You can be a good Ram player without even being a good player to begin with.

>GG has always been pretty balanced

>>377492661
But they did nerf her. It's more difficult for her to get a knockdown now. Also, her damage is quite low so you have plenty of time to escape her endless oki setups.
>>
>>377487676

The only GG post XX that had legit shit balancing is GG Slash and even then it was still well balanced outside of Sol and Ky.
>>
>>377493731

it pretty much has been, there are many, many top level players known for using characters at every strength that roll people over.
>>
>>377494429
The overall balance is ok, yaeh. But let's just watch on characters.
>Ram was SSS then nerfed to C and never recovered new moves are useless garbage
>Pot still low tier, none of his buffs help his problems
>Sin's food is buffed instead of being nerfed, he's still braindead S tier
I think the only character they really fixed was Elphelt. She's still strong but not as retarded as before.
>>
>>377494689
>m-m-muh tiers don't matter, just look at FAB!
Yeah, look how violenty destroyed FAB gets whenever he has to fight Machaboo.
Each version had its unbelivably broken character, with no single exception. GGX Johnny, GGX2 Eddie, #Reload Eddie (which was an ultra nerfed X2 Eddie, but still on the top) and Slayer, Accident Core Pot, Eddie, Zappa, Testament. Sign Ram and Elphelt, Rev Johnny Elphelt and Sin.

If you believe that ANY low tier characterhad a single chance against ANY top, then you're utterly wrong. On Rev 1.02, you had Johnny, who could loop unblockables, be positive on WHATEVER he does, kill half of your bar off a single touch and then follow it up with an unblockable for 20-40% more damage, and his moves cover half of the screen with ease. On Rev 1.02, you also had Jam, which could be thrown on her basic pressure, had abysmal damage and no range. If for you, this is good balance, then you're an absolute fucking retard.


>>377494780
>Ram was SSS then nerfed to C and never recovered
Oh yeah, the famous "muh Ram is unplayable now that she's not braindead anymore!!!". Fuck off. This character kills you off a simple confirm, while also having some of the best Slash buttons in the game. She's not in the same spot as Slayer where you have to take some extreme risks to get it. She's not in the case of Potemkin where you have to wait 30 seconds before it's your turn. She's not even in the case of Leo, where anything that has a projectile is a huge problem to him. And Leo is considered mid. She has issues, but you wouldn't possibly be able to quote them other than the extremly false "muh unwinnable neutral"

>new moves are useless garbage
They are definitely underwhelming, but the serve their purpose kind of correctly. With them, you can sacrifice the mediocre KD you get with j.2D and get an additional YRC instead. And you can manage to not die thanks to those if you get your j.H blocked. Not game changing, but still an ok addition.

>Is it a newbie trap to main her?
I wouldn't say so, but your winrate is a bad criteria for choosing a main IMO.

>I feel like she has a low skill ceiling?
Theoretically speaking the skill ceiling is really really high, since the optimal performance would mean synchronization between you and your minions in order to extend combos like Zato-1 does (or like Zappa did).
You could say she does have a low skill floor since her minions automatically apply perssure and her inputs are easy, but don't let that discourage you. If she's fun that's basically everything there is to maining a character.

I don't know, Potemkins almost always win against me in this game. I just don't know what to do with May. My projectiles get either deflected or just punished durings startup with a fullscreen 236S and everything else is absorbed by hammerfall.
It wasn't like that in #Reload, I swear. I used to beat hammerfall going under it with 3C and FRCing dolphin tackles but now they just armor through the 3C and punish with YRC and FRCs are dead.

you make the guess then you tap what attack you want. It does not require massive amounts of thought, you just need to commit.

>>377494780

You kind of have to expect characters to not be that great after a nerf and never really recover too well (post XX Johnny, Dizzy, Bridget, Robot Ky). Potemkin is a special case as his game literally is based on getting one chance.

>>377495460

FAB can get destroyed by a number of players, not just Machaboo. His character is not that great but at least he gets on with it and does not persistently moan, maybe because he may be the oldest GG player on the circuit.

Noone ie denying obvious strong/OP characters (AC Pot was not even in the top 4 in AC despite being broken). Though overlooking the fact that in those games people like Bleed, HH, Dogura, Shonen, Ruu, FAB, AGF, etc. were all making great strides regardless of how shit thier characters ended up being, just shows that regardless of how shitty you find the balance, all those characters are still viable within the environment they play.
>>
>>377498601
Well you surely have a poke that you can jump cancel, don't you?
Like you poke Pot to build meter, and once you get enough for a YRC, you begin to summon some projectiles, and YRC if he slide head to punish it.
And flick ain't that scary once you hit him before a projectile.

And also don't try to overextend too much. Potemkin is extremly good at punishing hard predictable gameplay. Always play the safest you can, since the reward off the not safe-thing you'll do will probably not be much better than Pot buster + oki.

The matchup is kind of hard to deal with if you're not familiar. But the rule is simple : play as safe as you can.

Speaking of top tier players, who misses players who don't play the game anymore?

Shoutout's to N-O, the Venom god, who switched to Blazblue. Also I haven't seen anything wild from Kusoru's Sol in forever.

How will that work for ABA or Order-Sol? Or even Kliff or Justice, since they never got rebalanced until AC+R?

Justice was piece of shit in +R so I'd rather have her Reload version.

>he's one of the top Rachels, last I saw

I remember someone saying he didn't want to play hard characters to win anymore, which is why he chose Rachel.

>Well you surely have a poke that you can jump cancel, don't you?
Usually I never had time to block if any normal with reasonable range got eaten by Hammerfall but this sounds like a good option I'll try it out. I did try to use j.S>jump but it's hard to do it so a 6P clashes and Hammerfall>YRC>623HS whiffs.
Anyway thanks for the tips, anon.

I just haven't seen kusoru. Does he even attend tournaments anymore (or rather tournaments outside Japan)?

>>377499215
increase the startup of DANZAI by a few frames and make her hits neutral on shield aside from a few combo finishers. Take away Purplefarts OKI tools with but increase the number of hits and chip that Ex fireball did.

>Low skill ceiling is the same as low entry barrier

Lol no Sol/Ky have plenty of hard MUs because of how basic they are even at high levels. Axl has to play near perfect in MUs like Johnny/Zato/Elphelt/Sin or hes dead. Leo is probably the lowest skill ceiling wise and it fucking hurts him because after you learn the little you do you gotta outright outplay people at higher levels with good reads and good decisions because they will avoid the unga bunga otherwise.

I think its cute you said this though. Its funny there are only like 2 Jap Kys , 2 Jap Axls and 2 Jap Sols that can win. Otherwise the Sols usually get eaten alive.

Basically if you have no fundamentals good fucking luck playing any of them and winning again decent or better people.

I believe N-O does not like Xrd so he just does not play it.

KA2 however, I wonder if he still plays any games...and Kaqn.
>>
I remember i used to get shit for playing Faust because he takes very little execution. But then come to realize you see almost no Fausts winning outside the top Jap ones and Elven.

So is this just a meme to equate execution alone to skill?
>>
>>377499429
Hmm don't think so.

Which is why I enjoy Maruhan. He seems to actually have fun with Sol, and actually use Riot Stomp, Grand Viper, and Dragon Install in their matches.
>>
>>377499761
I love Jap Sols that cut loose. Mochi is pretty clean and my favorite but its always nice to see one that riot stomps all day and catches Nage off guard and he just looks like he feels silly as fuck.

I remember Kaqn playing Order-Sol in AC. I'm not too familiar with Blazblue, but does he still play that game?

>early days of Blazblue and the rivalry between him and Buppa

Shit was rad

Anyone know how much Rev 2 upgrade version will be in EU, UK specifically?

The full game version is up but not the upgrade version. And I haven't seen PQube mention a price anywhere.

It's $20 in America, right?

We just got the demo for Rev 2 two days ago here in EU, so I made a basic combo guide for her if anyone's interested.

Obviously just basic stuff, I'm not gonna master a character in two days.

>We just got the demo for Rev 2 two days ago here in EU
I still cannot believe that there are people who actually didn't get the demo from the US store and waited unironically for PQube to release the demo
>>
>>377500618
Probably coulda done that, but I didn't care enough to get PS+ on the US store just for that.
>>
>>377500730
>create US account
>try to access the online storage
>"Wait senpai, you don't have PS+, wanna try it for two days?"
>get two days
>download demo
>keep playing it even if PS+ runs out
Holy shit, that was so damn difficult.
>>
>>377500847
I already have a US account - multiple, in fact - I just didn't know about the free two days of PS+.

Is it stupid I don't attack opponents when they taunt in fighting games? I either taunt back or let them finish when I could get a free hit.
>>
>>377501157
Depends on the game.

In a fighting game, if someone taunts it needs to be something they earned. If they're wrecking me so hard that they can get a taunt in and whether I punish it or not they still win? Good on them. But they have to understand they can't just throw it out willy nilly or it has no value.

However in a game like, say, Overwatch, with more people and where the combat isn't constant, if something exceptionally funny happens I'll sometimes leave taunters for the sake of it being just them messing around.
>>
>>377500501
There is demo? Nice, going to try it.
>>
>>377501317
I just feel it takes the edge off a bit. Instead of tearing each other apart, letting your opponent have a sip of wine or whatever they do makes the match feel more civil and respectful and less as if you're trying to murder someone.
>>
>>377501157
>Is it stupid if I don't want to win?
Dunno, you tell me.
>>
>>377501558
I guess it depends who you play with.

If it's people I don't know, then I have the expectation they're taking the match seriously.

If it's friends and I know their mentality towards taunts and they consider it the way you do, then sure I'd let up. I play BB with an online friend and if he taunts I'll sometimes taunt back. I wouldn't do that in Ranked though.
