Japanese VA Rose sounds like she’s spoofing Asian porn screams when she gets KO’ed. ffs I’m about to mute my game.

Hell, Rose's English VA already hits me a certain way. 

 

And, to the rest of everyone else here, I apologize. 

I did play some SFV but I still have footage to edit and new video to put out. A hybrid video of pure KOF and SF matches.

Didn't expect you of all people to be out there labeling sauce. 🤣

Clicker is famous for creating HQ artwork insanely quickly, to the point that the Twitter art community calls it the #HungryclickerChallenge where you create a full piece on a new character faster than them. Usually people lose. They're just that good. Anyway, that's how I know what their style is. Enjoy!

Abigail is one of those character where the question "what weakness should he have?" was answered by "he's ugly" as a joke but then they decided to roll with it anyway.

Flashbacks to when Abigail first came out and he was near unstoppable

Release Abigail was the worst thing to ever happen to this game. Half screen CC normals with hurtboxes a mile off from what they should be, yet every big body player tryna say it was fine because he’d be shit if he made sense.

 

This was back when I still played Vega and fighting him felt impossible. His non-existent hurtboxes + Vega’s claw normals not hitting anywhere near what the animation suggests = Russian roulette if you’ll actually hit the other guy.

Been thinking about jumping back to SFV.

 

You're gonna go to heaven with the goodie goodies.

 They never fixed most of his hurtboxes either. He is still technically the same size as Gief.  And people defended that. PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT.

It's almost like they shouldn't make big ass characters if they can't make the hurtbox as big as them.

 

Also, DBFZ hilariously made DBZ Broly work. Just takes a little bit of effort and brains. But Abi players have neither of those, so they wouldn't understand even if you explained it to them. 🙃

I remembered mostly playing KOF series in rental console improvise into an timed arcade which I can configure the button layout and I started playing proper real arcade KOF in 99.

 

 And The real main reason why I jumped late in KOF real arcade titles is...

 

Because of the button layout being inconsistent like you need to you need to reset your muscle memory every time

 

 

I do play it with a muscle memory like playing a Capcom Fighter LOL

 

Then when most arcade cabs here had been replaced with cheap bootleg cabinets like HiTech and Urban everything almost adopted the Capcom like layout

Fucked around and posted this in the wrong thread...

 

Any Chun-Li players here? 


What do y’all think of her VS2? It was total ass before but it got buffed in the patch to be at least useable. Can net good combos just like VS1 but can also hop over fireballs. On the other hand it seems pretty impossible to space or hit meaty, as I can’t make it better than -4 and Ryu can easily s.lk it on block. 
 

I will say that I’m testing now and VS1 seems way easier to combo into and builds more meter to boot. I just hate how it has like no utility outside of that. 
 

I never realized you could hit confirm her b.hp even without a crush counter. +2 on block or knockdown with a confirm into heavy legs. Can hit confirm a crush counter into VS1 as well, though you have to be super close or in the corner.

 

Edit: While I’m on the topic Kikosho is cool but seems bad. It’s not unusable but it’s quite tame for 3 bars and doesn’t even offer as much as VT1.

Since V-Shift more or less made the unblockable setups improbable it's certainly not that good anymore, but it can still catch people off guard or make them hesitate to push buttons in certain scenarios where she's negative. I haven't played her in a while and I always preferred VT1 anyway, feels less restrictive.

CT Arakune was easily the most BS character I’ve ever mained.

 

 

Dunno if Carnage Scissors got enough projectile invul to plow through that, but the worst part of the clip is that it didn't show what actually happens the moment CT Arakune gets Curse up.

After two (?) weeks of Rose I think I can safely say that among the characters I've played in this game so far she has some of the worst matchups I've ever experienced in this game. And it's not just a few, I'd say there's ten-ish characters in this game that she has a massive disadvantage against. Can be really frustrating if you know your opponent is half asleep and you have to give 101% just to keep up.

 

The Rose train has already departed as well, I think I haven't played the mirror match in a week.

I bought Rose like a day or two after her release and I knew like 30 seconds into training mode that she wasn’t for me. She kinda reminds me of a cross between Falke and Sagat. Big but slow buttons, a bit too plasma based, not very flashy. I was mainly interested in the Tarot card VS, the AA grab, the orb explosion special, and the teleport VT. I toyed around with them but honestly none of those things seem worth writing home about. 

 

I will say that she is kind of annoying to fight as Nash, and I suspect it’s not a great matchup for him. She has comparable buttons, faster walkspeed, and variety of plasma options that he has trouble dealing with while having decent anti-projectile options herself. 
 

It’s a shame because she was the main DLC character I was looking forward to this season. I have zero interest in Oro or Dan, Rose is meh, and I’m really not sure what to make of Akira.

RobTV has somethings to say on this general topic and I agree with him 100%. There is zero consistency on this situation. A clown that I won't mention by name did all types of shit that was "bannable." Yet this person was rewarded. Even  got a reality show invite. Only finally caught a ban when he said something greasy about a particular group. Hell people stanned for his ass being show on that show and took shots at people that took issue with it.

Yeah, plus some combo video V-Triggers that don't really matter in a real match because you're going to spend all that meter on V-Reversals and Shifts anyway.

 

I'll stick with her for the time being because I have no idea who to play otherwise. Not sure about Oro yet but he looks similarly complicated with possibly just as little payoff for your work. Akira seems to fit better in this game from the little we've seen and if nothing else I'll just get her to watch her intro animation.

Yeah, Oro looks just as complicated if not more so than Rose.  I'm not a person who cares too much about tiers but I really hope he doesn't end up being low tier.  Technical characters that end up bad are like a waste of a character slot lol.

Setting up different headphones for game and discord audio is a pain

I had JUST about got this working with my PS4/TV/PC when playing FFXIV (including PS4/PC audio and mic) and then I stopped playing. I'm a special sort of twat.
