>be abroad on a business trip since wednesday>fear /soul/ will die in my absence>return home just earlier>a whole thread has gone by while I was gone, and a new one's beginningThe /soul/ still burns, baby.
How has your weekend been, /soul/? Have you had fun playing Soulcalibur? Have you been learning new tech? How are you enjoying the tournament?
>>250091551Hard to keep up with both the Soulcalibur tournament, the AoE2 hidden cup and with my sad best friend who got dumped by his gf. I should have also fucking studied a little
>>250070295>>250074638oh you silly dont think i'll let you get away with that! im awake!
Tournament in how many hours?
>>250092778April Annihilation top 8 in 6 hours 45 minutes.
>>250091473This community is way more active than most people would like you to think
>>250091551Actually got to play SC1 on a Dreamcast Saturday. An old buddy of mine got his DC repaired and we fired it up for the first time in years. Played for an evening with beers whilst the wives were gossiping. Great fun.
>>250094468That's such a wholesome boomer post, I'm happy for you
>>250097271Do you think this is why Azwel love humanity so fucking much?
>>250097731No because he seems so sexless
>>250091551I have been practicing with sophitia and taking everyone's advice to heart my plan was to just get to F with her but now that I've reached that I'm thinking I might go further and see how far I get with her.
La diosa de los dragones...
Hello just got thisI have no idea what I am doing do I just hop onlinewhy is the guy with the huge sword with eyes so fast
>>250102387That image was just a croped image of sophitia with a game of thrones reference last thread. You had me all worked up for cass!
>>250103136Sophitia has nothing to do with dragos, it's a new dragon wielding character and she is from a spanish speaking country like Portugal
>>250102562Find a character you like and look at some YouTube guides on how to use them. Play with some friends or some lobbies to get a feel for the game before trying ranked.Don't be intimidated by nightmare he's not as fast as he seems up close. You will soon learn his tricks and how to get round him.
>>250103246But its just a cropped image of sophitia!with a Greek hash tag!
>>250103536It said geek not greek, the character is a geeky portuguese girl with a dragon
>>250103772It's still sophitia though!
>>250105980We need a character with one of those
>>250106095A bronze jian?
I love Amy.I'm going to marry her and make sweet love to her on our honeymoon.
>tfw just fought some Taki for 60+ matches straight at their continued insistence>probably would have been bored to tears after the 10th match and quit if it were not for Taki's divine jiggling titties keeping my interest and attentionBless this woman and her gifts.
>>250106447Alright calm down Raphael.we know.
>>250106475Those gifts could stand to be a little smaller
>>250106475A corollary to the "through dick, unity" axiom: "through boobs, perseverance".
>>250106524But you don't know.You can never know how much I love her.
>>250106726I do! because I love Cass just as much!
>>250103409What if I gave no friend to play
>>250107428Join some lobbies. /soul/ has routine ones for both pc and ps4.
>>250107428>>250107537Should probably try making your own "Beginners Only" lobby to start with, /soul/'s average skill level is pretty advanced and you might not learn a whole lot. Upside is, you know you're hanging out with fellow degenerates and can ask for tips here afterwards.
>>250109095That's a fair point.
>>250104089Well yes, she's a clone of sophitia. WE KNOW:
>>250109996Not a clone don't ya know!
>>250109095>/soul/'s average skill level is pretty advancedThere is no need to lie on the internet anon. Specifically not to newbies.
>>250112908But you guys are very good!and the ones that aren't as good don't join the lobbies or stay long... :(
>>250115978nothing will be announced at it right?
>>250115920>missinghave you tried looking in a low level sewer in a shitty RPG?
>>250117265Nice try duplicate!It was me all along!I just couldn't find anything to bump the thread with.
April Annihilation top 8 coming up.
>>250122530Pretty green lassie.
>>250122608i'm prepping my diaphragm
Why not creating a lobby and doing our own april annihilation?
Good thing bifu is streaming top 8 so I get to watch the vod.
>Alicia not on commentary
Oh God EmoWolf really isnt playing Kilik.
Why do all these SC6 players look so damn greasy. Take a shower bros...
Jesus cosplay at Soul Calibur tournament?
Damn, does Bluegod have Linkorz's number?
>picking Groh vs Azwel
>>250126049Bluegod has just been playing top notch overall this tournament, I wouldn't be surprised he wins it.
The battle of the boobies.
>Omega vs Xephukai first round.That was rape.
Ninja pokies for the win.
>goodguys won every game so farGOODGUYS YES
>party wolf going fucking amythis fucking madman
I haven't played this in awhile but I noticed that Talim can no longer guard cancel a RE. Is the RE meta changed a lot? Is it basically useless now?
>>250127978She could never cancel RE into guarding, she always had to press a direction to cancel into one of her stances.It DID get worse because RE uses more guard gauge now.
>>250127978I think she still can cancel it. It's raphael who had his cancel removed
>>250128147Didn't raph only have his prep cancel remove, and he can still cancel into derriere gambit?
>>250128114>>250128147Oh ok, I just realized that she can actually step cancel which is probably what I'm remembering
Anyone else only managing to fight for 10 seconds before disconnecting?
that's what you get for switching off of Amy
>>250128745yeah he did better with amy than kilik
Omega's Taki has taken out:-BoomXephukaiParty WolfDo you think he can win it /soul/?
>>250128893I feel like blueboy is gonna be the one that takes him out. He's too powerful.
No handshakes between Rikuto and Blue?
Rikuto got fucking destroyed. If Rikuto wins losers finals the grand final already goes to Bluegod.
>11 characters in top 8pretty good pretty good
>>250128893HE FINNA DO ITDO IT FOR BIG TIDDIES
>Geralt succumbs to Titty Ninja>Time to get a bigger sword
C'mon Omega I'm rooting for ya.
Titty ninja gonna get her breast reduction
>Linkorz using basehold parry against taki CE twice in a rowrip tittyninja
Omega choked so hard then.
Farewell my big titty ninja.
Fuck Bluegod trying to coach
>>250132238Getting his CE aGI'd broke him mentallyHe should've have tried the first one raw and should've known about stance transition into base the second time, Link doesn't autopilot
>azwel vs sieg what went wrong
wew that timeout
>azwel back in grand finals if EVO ends up like this I don't think the game is going to survive
>>250133597But isn't Azwel the based newcomer that everyone's sucking the cock off?
>>250133597Wasn't the last SC6 tournament a Cervantes vs Nightmare final?
>The snake hand is in the way on even-numbered roundswait does that stage change?
>>250131356Wait how does that work? If it's top 8 then there should be only 8 people and 8 characters
>>250134115People play multiple matches and they can switch characters
>>250134175>switching charactersThat shouldn't be allowed honestly, to enter a tournament people should select one character beforehand and use only that. Changing characters is in bad faith
>>250134018the walls change, yeah. the corners have walls on some rounds and the middle is ring-out territory, and then it switches for the next.
>>250134293GrumpyGooseWolf went ham on that today
Okubo should respect all his players and remove ringouts from the game
>>250134308woooow I never even noticed
never heard that long win quote before
>want to root for Linkorz>he is playing geraldoYou are making it very hard to me to root for you
>Tall walls.>Small walls.Hmmm
>>250115978>sfvfags complaining about scvi going over their time>sfv is scheduled to start at 5:30wtf
You know I don't like Gerry but I really hope they reuse his style on an original character in the next game like how they reused Kratos style for SCV Lizardboy.Should have done the same with Vader's style just remove the force stuff and add a different gimmick
linkorz ain't humain
MUST HAVE HAD A DEATH WISH
this game isnt good for my heart
That was spectacular
I'm hurt, but excellently done!
Godamn, what a fight
Now that Soulcalibur is over watch this with me https://www.twitch.tv/t90official
is there anything wrong with playing on a keyboard
>>250137421It's fun and to help it get to 17k viewers. It's pretty impressive for a 20 year old game to have people watching it like that
>>250137212That not even a fighting game.
>>250137320Yes because a Mixbox would be better
>>250138110why would mixbox be better? if you're playing on pc. on console I've heard that you can't use keyboard without the adapter adding some lag
>>250137123>>250137030>>250137005>>250136924fuck I missed all the finals.Linkzor won with gross Gerry? against who?
>>250138789He won against Blue God
>>250139010Oops wrong thread
>>250139010>posting alive game in thread of ded gameStop making fun of us
>>250138953ewww stupid Azwel, I'm glad he lost
>play a new character>Have more intense fights than I did in C rank
>>250132197Nighty night nightmare!
Any lobby up?
Imagine being this dead.
>>250142793Still alive we yet live.
It's time to party!
>>250142897I wanna party with tira and get jolly drunk. And carry her home, giving her a piggy pack while she switches to gloomy and cries about daddy not loving her.
we'll ne4 5get your valiant top 8 struggle taki
Please add this site to the OP below the CAS tool.http://cascards.ajewelofrarity.com/post/listI wish they had called it 'Soul Calibooru'. :(
>work out of town on 10 day stretches>5 days till i get to play sc6 againthe days are getting long /soul/
>>250144078You can always talk to us!
>>250149352Tag urself I'm Naginata

>tfw Taki will never tell you "You're in too deep."
I'm sleepyGoodnight /soul/.
>>250151113worse.... She's not real
>>250151436Look on the bright side if she was real those tits would sag terribly and look really bad
>>250151013Don't forget "Focus, and release!"
>>250151436>tfw you have a small dick and taki isn't realWhy even live.
I want Amy to tell me to sleep forever!
>>250152039>tfw I have a big dick and taki IS real
>>250152370shut up Mitsurugi, Taki would never fuck a borderline retard anyway.
>Go edit my character's body>Arm pieces clip horribly if I make their arms thickerGod damn you okubo why'd you do tira dirty like that?
>>250160540the CaS has all sorts of clipping, floating, disconnected jank.I never played scV, was the CaS this fucked up?
>>250161776Yep. I remember wizard mantle being exactly the same.
>>250152039>and taki isn't realWut?
>>250160540>The forearms pissing me off so much I used the ball shape to make it look like she's got thicker forearms than the equipment allows>It somehow worksThis'll do.
>>250155717>raises a borderline retard, but won't fuck one
>>250164449Now we know where Natsu got it from.
>>250164449I meanWould you fuck your kid?
>>250165195God I love bifu.
>>250165561What if they really really wanted to smash?
>>250165625I asked the wrong person entirely>>250166596No! It's unhealthy!
>>250166804Eh, it's all relative.
>>250165195The Bifucam is the next evolution in esports broadcasting.
Why is he so adorable?
I'm running out of warriors!
>>250172728Humans haven't run out of war yet.
>>250173684Humans now drink monster energy and cola. They can't stop us now with droughts.
Give chainsaw welding maternity ward doctor NOW!
>>250175980What if ashlotte used a chainsaw axe?
>>250176875Why bother making golems out of flesh when you can make sentient dolls?
Every day we stray further from the eyes of the lord.
>>250176937Machines require complex moving parts mythical golems are made out of solid material like clay or mud. Idk
>>250177041I like doe fawn ladies.
>>250177592Astaroth is clearly not a mud golem.
>>250177691We'd need to touch him intimately to find out... haha
>>250177875You do not! He's clearly not mud!
>>250178071But what if its hardened flesh like mud. Or he's grown from mud like the orcs in Lotr?
>>250178191The orcs are grown IN mud, not from mud! They're not made of mud either!
>>250178235What if it hardens into flesh like the puttys in power rangers?What cassandra and tira had a fight in this mud?
>>250178324It would be hardened, abrasive and probably not very sexy.
>>250178485What if it was just regular mud?
>>250179176Then it'd make a lousy golem.
>>250179576No that they were fighting in!
>>250177041Yeah, that's a nightmare
top 8 was pretty good, we saw 11 different charactersNow linkorz and bluegod are 1-1 in tournament victories
>>250161776Yeah V was like that and VI CAS is lifted directly from that. III and IV had more limited options in CAS since they didn't have stickers, patterns or objects to put and move around but they didn't have so many clipping and incompatibility issues
>>250164449Uh Natsu isn't a retard, you retard>>250165561Raph would
>>250180879I do not know if natsu is a retard but she is very silly. But maybe that's okay though if that's the type of character she is and she doesn't replace taki.
Why does each recent patch try to reduce ringouts?Are they common in higher tier play or something?
>>250181880Very much so. A lot of characters can ring you out from midstage off certain moves and a lot of the these moves you can get off of a guard break.
>>250181880Ring-outs feel more prevalent in SC6, despite stages being the biggest they've ever been in the franchise, because characters can carry you so far.
>>250181880It's the fucking millenials getting salty over a mechanic that has always been there
>>250181880They used to be very common on the desert stage and edge master stage.Even high level players hated fighting say, Ivy on that stage, because one launch from midscreen was a ring out. More than a few characters could do this and as fun as ring outs are, they were happening too often.Xianghua used to have the ability to do this too, they nerfed her directly though because her frame data is kinda really good, so the risk reward was skewed as hell on certain stages from roundstart. 2B too, but they wanted to focus on her "all-rounder, tool for everything" design rather than it being about frame data.
>>250181419So fucking cute ma
>>250182432Ma?I ain't yer ma!
>>250173834Is that a bouncer throwing out two blokes and their arm candy?
>>250181419I also love Pai's relationship with the stoic, silent ninja.
>>250181419And of course I forgot the pic.
>>250175980Perhaps we should have a crossover with that Bomberman arcade waifu MOBA...
Urge to learn Taki rising to new heights. Do I do it?Y / N
Did the saga of the guy who broke his SCVI disc ever continue?
>>250190732Do it, she is pretty fun to play, and you dont see too many taki's anymore.
>>250180560Any worthwhile voldo players in the tournament? I was innawoods for the weekend.
>>250181880>>250182050>>250182079>tfw your opponent is being a cheeky negro about ringouts but you're getting wise to their shit.
>>250191629>getting to C rank with just RO fishing>people in ranked so daft they eat enough obvious ROs to allow some dipshit to get to rank CGod, I can't wait until I get to rank C and give these people the business.
>>250192472To be fair they was pretty good, we had a lot of close fights. They were just being a lil' shit in that stage and I was falling for it every time. Zas has some scary ringout potential with his back to the edge. Fortunately for me he was as bad as I am at breaking grabs.
>>250191101No.because he's a big chicken that won't send the disk to me!
>>250187479It's older cass on the far right. With miss trunchbull from matilda opening the door.
>>250189008is it me or people seem to forget taki and by extension natsu, seem to be more monster slayers rather then just plain ol' assassins?
>>250194484... What would you do if you got his Pac-Man'd SCVI disc with his blood on it?
>>250194975make it into a fine fucknamco axe of course!>his blood on it no different than my own blood on my stuff.
>>250194681they assassinate demons, anon
There's so many fucking moves to learn, where do I start?
>>250195442Scroll though your movelist in practice mode and memorize the 5 coolest ones first.
>>250195402at best sealbut the term ninja is technically correct as ninja techniques isn't exclusive to assassinate officials """"""unfair""""""" trump cards can also be considered ninjitsu
>>250195442youtube character guides and watch some tournament level play and watch what they are using.
>>250195531>coolest ones firstNormally I'd slap your shit for suggesting this in a fg but I like your style >>250195658I can barely register what move is what though. I'm a SF brainlet and I'm only used to seeing 20 moves per character, not this crazy 60+ shit.
>>250195779the guides will usually recommend about 10 as a starting point of useful tools to get started
no one complains about Ivy anymore?I got humilated by a C-rank Ivy.... it felt like that guy just had me downloaded from round one.I rematched him twice, just trying to learn how to move in on him. at one point I was already flustered and he was just walking all over the stage, causing me to whiff A's and B's. content with my spirit thoroughly broken he winquits me.felt bad....
>>250195779Start by checking out the Combat Tactics part in Training mode - read the universal tactics part and then your character's own tactics page. Should give you an idea for how to approach a battle and an overview of what your character's unique gimmick is and how it works.
>>250196173I haven't fought any Ivys in a while I'm sure next time I meet one I'll come here to complain again.
>>250196371ok, I'll wait until then so I can complain with you
>>250196696>another prisoner to the TOOOORNS
>It's a niggy who spam guard break attack and RE when he lose advantage episode How the fuck did he manage to go in C5
*Ahem.* Ffffffffuck AMY. What a piece of shit.
>>250197870her sidestep B launcher is ridiculous
>>250198014Buff in next patch.
>>250198168>>250198209I hope she gets rebalanced harder than Raphael.
>>250198371The words of a loser mean nothing.
>>250198462It's okayThis anger will sustain me when you shits are crying harder than the Raphfags.
>>250198715dont worry soon Cass will be the new meta!
>>250198862Nah she'll be balanced like Tira and I won't have even more reasons to mildly dislike her.
>>250196173I fought one during my last excursion into ranked and promptly vented here. She's got the most cheese potential out of anyone in the cast, man.>C5 Ivy, on the biggest stages, spamming DURR ANOTHER PRISONER TO THE THORNS and "LEMME JUST COVER THE ENTIRE SCREEN AND HERE'S A LETHAL HIT IF YOU GET HIT">uses the jumping attack up close to avoid most neutral options and to minimize damage, while getting her own combo if she dodges, and getting a free escape back to square 1 neutral if something hits her in the air
>>250199061It's not like she's any better in the smaller stages, ANOTHER PRISONER TO THE THOOORNS just rings you out instead of putting you far away.
>>250199000>Tira on release>balancedHey Gloomy can I kill this one?
>>250199937I didn't say on release, you dumb parrot.
>>250196206>>250196064I forgot those existed, thanks for reminding me. It's nice that they give you a guide for how character specific mechanics work. wanting to main Tira is suffering
>>250200027well every DLC character after Tira have been overtuned nightmares, I feel like Cass will follow this trend.
>>250200274They should follow Tira's example instead. That way Cassfriends will be real fans and not a bunch of tierwhores, and their devotion will eventually be rewarded with juicy buffs.
Imagine hitting your opponent's guard for3 minutes and then remembering you can grab things
>>250200603I will play her regardless!
>>250201902I'm sure you will, but instead of getting a lower tier character and getting rewarded with buffs, You'll be playing a broken character and then you'll feel sour about the balance patches. You might rationalize and say they're needed, but deep down you'll be resentful of them.
>>250189008Stop bullying Natsu
>>250202040I will be happy just to play her again.I will adapt to however the devs want her to be played. Though I'm sure I will have my criticisms when I try the playstyle.I just hope she doesn't have a steep learning curve like viola did.
>>250202347>Sophie clone, bunga edition>Steep learning curveHaw, be serious you.
>>250200603Hey hey hey I know there's a lot of people playing Amy right now because she is good but some people playing her really like Amy and not her frame data and good moves. Don't lump me with tier whores. I'm way too fucking bad to even realize what characters are good or bad until someone tells me
>>250202445But what happens if she has a radically different mechanic like Amy's roses?
>>250203136She's still a clone just like Amy is still a clone because she doesn't bring a new and interesting weapon in this weapon themed fighting game
>>250203136That mechanic is in no way complicated. It's just "do x combos early on to become retarded overpowered by round 2".
>>250203261go play for honor or something if you want weapon "variety" and leave us alone with our anime 3d fight game
>>250204164Soulcalibur is not anime, Blazblue, Guilty Gear and Unist are anime
>>250203261>>250204164But she uses a copper age axe!
>>250204196It's anime-lite, which is why I'm not a big fan of anime-heavy characters like 2B or even anime-heavy weapons like Siegfried's sword (Soul Edge gets a pass because it's magic and evil).
>>250204301did they have electrical tape during the copper age?
>>250204638That's leather silly!
>>250204638Maybe in Turkey.
>>250204750She is not Turkish!
>>250205074She's a shellfish AND a roach.
>>250205207She is not Turkish but she is shellfish so she would eat all the Turkish delights!
angry anon who broke his game disc here, I have enough money to buy a new copy...not sure if I should or not, I'm still lurking around the SC 6 reddit/discord so apparently It's still floating around in my subconcious...
>>250206493Buy it on steam so you have no disc to break.
>>250204164do NOT play For Unga
>>250206621if only my PC wasn't a toaster...
>>250206771SCVI looks like shit literally worse than SCIV your PC probably runs it
They just can't beat the first game's intro.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtF80UCgarYAlso, that Taki's ending where she fights an upper torso of a floating ghost demon statue is hilarious.
>>250202491>some people playing her really like AmyI wanted to main Amy at release but also wanted to still play the game so I picked up Sophitia to use in the meantime.Amy releases and I don't know what the hell I'm doing and I keep falling back on Sophitia to avoid losing. I'll have to put the time in to learn her and use those loses as opportunities to improve.I just...Didn't expect her to be so complicated. She's straightforward to use in SCIV but in SCVI her rose gimmick is unfun. When I play as her I want to focus on defeating my opponent--Not focus on upgrading her so I can. The gimmick ultimately makes every set a chore.
>>250207107It really is fantastic. Weirds me out that they didn't include it among the game tracks they added.
>>250206493Did you have friends to play with on your console? Did you find lots of matches whenever you played?>>250206771Fellow toaster guy here; game runs just fine despite my computer not nearly passing the spec tests, perhaps thanks to all the last console gen tech being used in SCVI and the fact that graphics options exist.Should pirate it or buy it on Steam and give it a whirl. Steam lets you get those refunds if you refund within 2 hours.
>>250207107Look she had reasonably sized tits back then
>>250191172I main Taki, it's because she can get Unga'd by some popular characters and those comboes require 200 IQ minimum to perform
>>250207219You better not be one of those niggers that makes my game run at 9 fps.
>>250207145At first I was worried about the rose stuff but after playing her it really doesn't feel that complicated at least to me, the red roses are pretty easy to max and honestly at my low level the white ones don't feel as necessary
>>250207219Absolutely Friendless>Did you find lots of matches whenever you played?actually, yeah for the most part except really early in the morning. barely had to wait for matches and usually a good amount of casual lobbies
>>250207219To add, depth of field and chromatic aberration kill this game's framerates, but both can be disabled in the PC version. My video card's leagues above the requirements for the game but my FPS still tanks with this garbage on.
>>250207367it has my diabetic blood all over it and I tossed it in the trash already
>>250207241I play voldo and yoshi really well, I know what you are talking about, sucks people like mina only need 3 moves to be good, but shitting on a character like that makes it all worth it. Nothing but respect for good taki players.
>>250207716Ahhhh!Shame...we could of made something special.
>>250207107Some of the other games had really solid intros too. I can't even remember SC6's intro.
>>250207329Nah, I've set the settings low enough that the game runs silky smooth. I imagine I would be the one most affected by the game not running good due to being uniquely assburgerian about performance and tripped mentally by my OCD by the slightest change in FPS and Just Frame drops.
>>250208338Because it doesn't have one. There's an intro to the story campaign that basically recaps the finale of Soul Edge, but that's not an intro in the conventional sense.
How long does it take to get to F rank? (I know some stuff of the game but have shit defense?)
>>250209018What do the letters start at? G? Anyways, could take long if you don't pick your battles. If you pick your battles, maybe an evening. If you pick your battles, learn to press guard into A~A or 2A or any K option afterwards to steal momentum back... maybe 3 hours?
>>250209805The letters start at G once you leave Sprout.
>>250207716For our viewers at home who aren't diabetic, when you have a high blood sugar level you gain the temperament of the Incredible Hulk as a side effect. Parts of your body temporarily shut down and your veins feel as though they're wrapped in thorns as fine microscopic grains of overflowing glucose scrape like sandpaper across your blood vessels and your insulin depraved cells start dumping acid into your bloodstream. You become extremely irritable and want to bathe the world in an apocalyptic flame and with even the slightest irritation provoking all of the anger in your being at once.That said, please don't give this guy any shit about destroying his game disc. I'm confident that everyone here would have done the same and worse under the effects of high blood sugar. Your mind enters an almost primal state when it happens and you lose more and more of your ability to think the higher it gets.Ribs are fine though I kind of want an axe made out of a fractured game disc now too. It'd be crazy if someone could mod it into one of Astaroth's weapons.
>>250209805I'm currently G3 right now. Haven't played rank since around launch so.
>>250214409You are less than 1000 RP from F rank, if you do well in about 1-3 hours you can F rank. Good luck anon.
>>250211429I think I know someone else who suffered from fits of rage and was diabetic.
>>250216096I'm on PC if anything is it still active online?
>>250216168Ahhhh stop!don't do it to tira!you fiend!

>>250207107Call it nostalgia but I think SC2's is just as good.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uA5LTWiJkKU
>>250222027I liked 3 but maybe I'm biased because it was my favorite game in general
>>250222141Not him but I like 3's a ton as well, never played it though
>>250222027The Mitsu bit was fantastic.
>>250222027I love how the music turns gay as soon as Raph appears, very nice touch to go with his persoality
>>250222215>>250222141SC3's is fantastic, the Ivy vs Cervantes fight is top notch.
>>250207107>everyone doing cool weapon stuff>siegfried just does a hair flipMan he was so smug before Soul Edge fucked over his brain huh
>>250222241My all time favourite Mitsu moment is that bit in the intro of Soul Blade where he fights two men in long grass and kills them in one attack. As an unapologetic samurai film fancier it just strikes the right chords.>>250222626I love the Soph and Cass team up moment.
I just want Salia playable she's been ignored for too long
>>250226758She will keep being ignored because Siegfried is gay or redemption muh hand sexual
Something wrong natsuflatfag?
>>250228384Lots of things, the size isn't even the worst of them. That just looks bad
>>250228384>Don't jiggleWhy bother?
>>250228591reminds me of two other ninjas with large attributes...
>>250228771they don't jiggle but they do break
>>250229072Too bad that when they break the ones underneath don't break too.
>>250216434It say so, PC also, the overall skill of people has gone up, it might be harder at first but it will be better for getting good.Use standby in training mode, it makes waiting around go faster. The population isnt packed, but if you find soneone your skill level, infinite rematches. Oh, and get ready to face a few B and C ranks, for some reason sprouts and G ranks find more of them than my D rank does...

Is there tier lists from top players? I am curious to see what it is like.Bought it a few weeks ago and the vast majority of people I have played just used Knightmare.
>>250230872Every character is overpowered except the one i like
Daily reminder that I guess you can Reverse Impact auto-GIs.
Put socks on your characters, people
>>250231394its just that one not giving you enough opening frames to do SBH A there is a reason why the buffed SBH B mfw Im the one who suggested the change
>>250229679Where is that axe head going?
>>250233868nighty night nightmare.
>>250230872No tier lists, but the big names sometimes drop their opinions during tournament stream commentary.Some say Sieg is basically the #1 strongest at the moment. Some say Amy is up there as well, even though she's still fresh and impressions haven't solidified yet. UR OPEN and Ivy also looking good.I think they're pretty pleased with the balancing. There's no God tier and shit tier. It's less a MvC2 we're looking at here and more a GGXrd Rev 2 situation; everyone's viable. Nightmare is picked often because big easy bunga SFX lightshow scrubstomp damage and because he's the poster boy and one of the most well known fighting game characters in history.
>>250230872I've heard very good players say that pretty much everybody is viable now, it's just that some are a little more powerful than others. Just pick somebody you like
>>250234593>>250234389Except Raph, Raph is fucking terrible and not worth the anime levels of complexity you need to get used to play him
i think i'm narrowing down the shot of tira i need.Also does anyone have any tips for playing her?
>>250234772>playing the 4.99 RNG low tier character
>>250234849i think shes cool and would make an interesting secondary.
>Time portal opens>Masked clockwork assassin steps outLadies and Gentlemen, Voldo's German rival, Karl Ruprect Kroenen.

Finished Mina's story since release.
>>250226891No! Make her a longsword user and have her be tomboyish enough so it works for men and women.
>>250237473I would accept that because we really need a longsword user. Giving Mitsu alternate weapons that are more longsword like isn't going to cut it. I want to see some half swording and that thing where you hit the guy with the hilt of the sword
>>250237632End him rightly.which also means its a screwed nut construction meaning its a fucking cheapy sword rather than a solid peened construction.
>>250226138No homo, but Raph a qt
>>250238665Yeah he and Siegfried are very cute, Soulcalibur is the only game where I think the men are cuter than the girls no homo
>>250237632>>250238085Or if its still attached and the hilt is being used as a mace it's called “murder stroke”
>>250238959whoa this knight needs a breast reduction
>>250238959Yeah that's what I meant
>>250238665>>250238772>no homoI'm going to believe that /soul/ is filled with qt girls and you are not going to take that from me.
>>250239057You know I was gonna comment on those big airbags on that knight
>>250239057Kek natsuflatfags taking a mace to his chest to flatten them out.
I had to rewatch the fight with base hold vs Taki's CE, my god
>>250238772that's funny because i can't get into any of the soul calibur guys i think the girls are all cute
>>250240175You might be a lesbian
>>250240258the girls just have better aesthetics
>>250241565There are no dudes on the internet
>>250237632>>250237473>GOD I HATE AMY AND CASS DAMN SHELLFISH POSTERS REEEEE>also give me a Geralt cloneAbsolutely ebin
>>250242183would they prefer it if Cass used a longsword? :)
>>250242183there are 45 people here anon what are the chances those two are the same person who said that all caps complaint
>>250242183Geraldo will be gone next game and there will be no more longsword users in forever, they also wouldn't use meme witcher magic
>>250242335SHELLFIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISH>>250242358PS has a history of reusing guest character's moves so it's not impossible. Though I commend your optimism in getting a sequel anytime soon.Anyways, Amy is as different to Raphael as Seung Mina is to Kilik as is Nightmare to Siegfried as will Cass probably be to Sophitia. I just find it hilarious two people asked for a longsword user as if they completely forgot about Jerry Rivers
>>250242676I asked for Salia to be an in-series longsword user exactly because of Geralt being a guest. I didn't forget him
>>250242676They want an original SC character like Salia and from what one of the guys said having that character use half swording and the murder stroke maybe as stances or something would make him completely different from Geralt. Geralt also isn't that much of a traditional longsword user considering he sometimes dual wields and uses magic though I wouldn't be opposed if his style was reused just to keep the weapon type being represented and because it's actually pretty fun to use
we're never getting Salia anyway. She's not as lucky to become a playable character after being backstory fodder for so long, like Cassandra, Patroklos, or Amy
>>250243864>Patrokloshe aint coming back.
>>250244380that's why they're giving his moves to Cassandra, duh
>>250244693MMMMM! Slurp yummy more moves! more weapons! All for me! me me me!
>>250245492Does oofmatic ever play in these? Haven't seen him in tournament for a while.

This was cutting edge 3D graphics technology.
>>250273627Still very fapable.
>>250273627Some of the cg shots are still alright. It's the In game models that look terrible now... square tits etc.In before the natsuflatfag complains about the squares being too big!
>>250274747Or too pointy!
>>250274975Well we're in agreement there.But small more pointy boobs were a thing and we're more popular in the 40s as a women's ideal physic. So maybe a character should have boobs like that instead of just large, medium small and flat.
>>250274747They weren't that big in the old times they were kinda ok back then
>>250276534They had big boobs too And small ones just people had different tastes of what the ideal body was at different times.
>>250277189I miss the good old times
>>250274747>It's the In game models that look terrible now... square tits etcIn-game models are good, the tits don't look square either. Soul Edge is not FFVII.Look at this, square tits where?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKd9BbZ4stA
>>250278570>armpits not hairy
>>250279036NO MORE SHIELDS
>>250279174Not square, triangular at most
>>250279072Pretty sure it's a Frisbee lol
>>250279387Ok we can have a frisbee character
>>250279420And I know just the girl!
>>250279469Uh can she stick to one style? Or do you want to make her a Gilgamesh clone instead of a Sophitia clone and make her throw a bunch of weapons? She would still be a clone you know? Dumb shellfish
>>250279521But she does use her shield as a Frisbee! :(
>>250279640NO MORE SHIELDS
>>250279174A bad angle. She just has a massive nip erection, her nipples are hot 24 hours a day in this game.
>>250279795Don't they get stiff in the cold though?
>>250279521>>250279682shut the fuck up mr "weapon variety" bamco doesnt give a shitif harada gets 4 mishimas in ONE game then soul calibur gets 3 alexandras in one game
>>250256943Not really. Safe lows are often slow, and a lot of characters have a way to low crush for good damage (usually 9B but some characters get more). Unsafe lows are unreactable but if you do guess right, you usually get -16 or worse for them to work with, for quite a few characters that's a CE punish or a WR move into knockdown/high frame advantage. It's a different mindgame than you're used to but still a mindgame.If you're extra mindful you can go for 9G from guard or backstep out of 2K range and give them a huge punish too. Or use a move that backsteps for you.
>>250280351Harada has a game that is still alive and makes bank anon. Amy proved that reused weapons won't make people come back as the game is still dead
>>250229007>SC women guest star is Taimanin Series>Asagi guest stars in SCeveryone wins.

Damn I wish I had more sticker slots. Nothing livens up a costume like well-paced stickers, but then I can't add as many scars as I really want to my CaS. At least the "makeup" section gives you a free face sticker, so to speak.
>>250293584I remember when "that's Tira, from the up-coming game Soul Calibur 3" was a meme in 4chan and I don't understand to this day why that was a meme.
>>250293749I don't remember that meme at all.
>>250294813It wasn't super popular. People would just repeat the whole sentence when asked about tira even after the game had come out. Sometimes about unrelated characters.
>>250293749>>250294920ah but we have a much better replacement meme.
>>250297675>>250295394Bless this underboob parrot.
>>250297675that's a sexy looking Tira!
Man I wish Soul Calibur had a story mode like Mortal Kombat's.
>>250298473MK has some really forced fights in its story mode though and it also always force the same characters to always lose
>>250298473You mean you want Mortal Kombat's cinematic presentation and not actually the structure of their story mode. I prefer the structure of Soul Chronicle.
>>250298681Is this a picture for roaches?>>250298779That's just a problem with the writing, it's the format and general quality that's brilliant, content itself would be up to the team to pull off.
>>250297719>>250298135>>250298473you want more cutscenes dont you
>>250298843This, everyone getting to star in their own story while jobbing in other character's is preferable to MK's movie presentation.
>>250298872Well no budget for that. Though Soul Calibur has an easy way to fix those problems since the fights against those jobbers could just be against OC CAS
>>250298843I mean the format of telling the story by having you assume the roles of different characters and seamlessly switching from fight to cutscene. You also have to remember, when MK9 came out a typical game story mode was just having every character do 8 random fights with maybe one "rival" match, and a couple story slides sprinkled around. It was an afterthought. They've gotten better, but MK is the only one doing it truly well. >>250298898>you want more cutscenes dont youWell yes, but you're just being reductionist.
>>250298843That would be ideal. Having each character do their own thing in Soul Chronicle is pretty good. And not having everyone appear in the same place for no reason to keep losing when it's not their chapter is better
>>250299134no i want more cutscenes too and would love to see the beautiful characters in more scenes not to mention them interacting with each other more.I think the conduit story was done well my only complain was the good and evil system was expanded enough.
>>250299190I enjoy Soul Chronicle's format, but I think a more unified story structure could be beneficial as well. Instead of selecting one character and fighting 5 mooks between loading screens and presentation slides, try to show how everyone's journey ties together here and there. Everyone wouldn't HAVE to meet everyone else, but they all share a goal, so you'd have plenty of opportunity for interaction. Mitsurugi's continued failure to come anywhere near Soul Edge never ceases to amuse me, though.
>>250299134>>250299190Mortal Kombat has to stretch its own logic at times to force fights between named characters. At least in Soul Chronicle, they acknowledge that sometimes, your character has to fight mooks and would have no reason to deal with another character. Taki's entire Soul Chronicle is dealing with part of the Fu-Ma civil war and being an outcast and sealing a demon before heading west.
>>250299563>Mortal Kombat has to stretch its own logic at times to force fights between named characters.*chooses to*.
>>250299749>We have this new generation of characters who are going to take charge in this story and will be great. How do we gracefully introduce them to the audience in a way that makes them look strong and raring to go?>Have all of them job to Sub-Zero
>>250299563>Taki's entire Soul Chronicle is dealing with part of the Fu-Ma civil war and being an outcast and sealing a demon before heading west.But she shows up in Mitsurugi's Soul Chronicle. A MK-like story mode could tie all those crossings together while hoping from "chronicle to chronicle", so to speak. It would be amazing. What's really valuable about MK's format to me is that they don't HAVE to think up a set of fights for every character. They can focus on the important ones and seamlessly switch to whatever character they wish to focus on next, it's what I found so great about MK9's story.
>>250300110No one meets Talim except the Conduit. No one meets Raphael/Amy except the Conduit and Azwel. Sophitia and Yoshimitsu meet only after Soul Edge is destroyed, in the ruins of Ostrheinsburg.
>>250300340Again, by choice. And hell, if Talim doesn't participate in the main story, then she doesn't even need to be in the story mode. She's a SC2 character anyway and this game is mainly SC1.
tag team battles!why did they never add this in!?oh it would be so fun to team up with a bro and play online like mk9.>unique character interactions >making tag team outfits with unlikely teams>broing up with /soul/oh that would've been so fun!
>>250300478The game is not just SCI, but also the 3- and 4-year gaps between Soul Edge, SCI, and SCII.
>>250300669But Talim only participates in the SC story in SC2, same with Raphael. Of course they'd be non-characters.
>>250300669In fact, the very first story beat of the core path is the Ling Sheng Su massacre, which happened the night the Evil Seed was released - read: the moment Siegfried claimed Soul Edge and became Nightmare in his Soul Edge ending.
>>250300487Who the fuck want to team up with cervantes or azwel?
>Hwang's Soul Chronicle will be much like his SC1 story - training in Korea, travelling to find Soul Edge, realizing it's for shitters, finding Seong Mi-na and dragging her home>Hilde's Soul Chronicle will be dealing with her malfested father and rallying the forces of Wolfkrone to combat the Schwarzstrom>Setsuka's Soul Chronicle will be getting bullied by the Japanese for being a gaijin, training with her master/lover before finding him mortally wounded by Mitsurugi, and probably beating a couple people up in her blind anger before resolving to hunt Mitsu down for revengeI'm not actually sure what Lizardman's Soul Chronicle would look like, as between the Soul Chronicle and Libra of Souls, it implies Aeon Calcos was not yet captured and made Lizardman Prime by the Fygul Cestemus, even though one of Astaroth's one-off quips is that Lizardman Chief fights like the Spartans do.
>>250302530Cervantes: Literally no oneAzwel: Raphael, maybe
>>250302530>>250302731maybe its just an alliance of convenience.But it be cool to make pirate outfits for the girls for a pirate tag team!
>>250299051That's boring for the audience though.>Are they main cast? No? Guess they pose no threat!Plus how cheap most CaS tend to look due to the way items are rigged, floating bits and clipping. They would have to play it really safe with parts which would also be boring, or put in the extra effort to custom fit for these story mode only CaS - might as well put that effort in new characters instead.
>>250302574you are missing someone....
>>250302530>>250302731You laugh, but just you wait! Project Soul will reveal Cervantes' path to redemption in the new story line (CLEARLY hinted at by his own Soul Chronicle focusing on his sense of self apart from Soul Edge, and letting Ivy live)!He'll be the hero he once was and earn many valued allies!
>>250302951>or put in the extra effort to custom fit for these story mode only CaS - might as well put that effort in new characters instead.They could just put in the effort to make handcrafted CaS mooks, which would be far easier than making new characters. >>250303065
>>250303143Cervantes let Ivy live because she's a shitter when he beats her. He released her to let her become stronger so that when he does come back and reap her soul, it will be far more satisfying. Cervantes's entire goal is to claim numerous powerful souls for himself so that Soul Edge can't control him again when he inevitably takes it back.
>>250303151You have stopped using Turkish due to the Turkish delight! dont make me buy live roaches next! or edible ones which are actually quite nice with salt and vinegar the crickets need more salt and vinegar though.
>>250302951Hey, some of the CaS characters are pretty neat.
>>250303462||Roaches is just what you call turks||.
>>250303570ah but you switched!
>>250303614They're the same thing!
>>250303724then use them interchangeably!
>>250303939call Cass Turkish !do it!
>>250304007I'll call her sea roachish and you cannot stop me.
>>250303151Not saying it's directly proportional, but that it is a waste of effort. I'd rather work go into new actual characters than hand crafting mooks with copied styles to make them seem more menacing or believable. Even just the effort gone into modelling them should be put elsewhere.>>250303517Yeah, and I love the concept of CaS, their inclusion in the story mode and such. I don't think they warrant any extra budget when there's much better places to be putting that money right now though.
>>250303375He's just being tsundere!
All this talk about story modes is making me realize once more how damn weird it is that your Conduit in Libra can't be imported from or exported to the creation menu.
>>250304120I will eat a dozens of Turkish delights and you cannot stop me!
>>250304030FUCK YEAH, BOYS! WE DO IT!Please expand into a world tour, please expand into a world tour, please expand into a world tour, please expand into a world tour, please expand into a world tour...
>>250304782Hope they go well with the bowl of eggs.
>>250304572There are limitations on the Libra CaS that don't apply to conventional CaS, most notably the fact that the Conduit can change their weapon on the fly.
>>250305781The conduit has to change his weapon through a menu just like the CaS has to, I don't get what you're saying at all.
>>250306314Not the same menu, though. Point is, the Libra CaS can't customize their weapon the same way a conventional CaS does.
>>250306432Which is dumb, but even so that's not a limiting factor, it's just dumb things they did with their own UI. It'd be trivial to allow the mode to import from the CaS menu, and they could simply ignore weapon customization for it.
>>250304030>only Tokyo date TBDFor any particular reason?
>>250309080No clue, sorry.
>>250302951I think that's better than making characters like say Voldo or Astaroth from the main cast pose non threat by making them repeatedly lose to the good guys in the main storyline like how Baraka, Reptile and perhaps Erron Black now have been used, but maybe MK11 won't have that problem
>>250310134Maybe that's the wrestling fan inside me that wants to protect the characters in the story mode and avoid making them lose in fights with no meaning so they don't look weak and lose story value or something it's probably just me
>>250310412>Maybe that's the wrestling fan inside me>wrestling fan
>>250312783Hey don't judge there are people here who like fucking Natsu
Steam servers shat the bed?
>>250312967Look at those nerds with their dumb codenames
>>250312967Steam servers back online. Just a quick doo-doo dip, it seems.
>>250312869>people here who like fucking Natsu
>>250312967>rank penalty because Steam went downGG
>>250312869I'd like fucking natsu.
>>250314225Same man she is hot and I bet she would be crazy at sex
>>250312869natsuchan's really cute tho
>>250312869>>250313141I like the natsuflatfag!Even if I don't like natsu very much.
>>250316879Yeah but you like turks
>>250316973Turkish delights!they have purple jelly in them!
It's criminal how little fanart there is of her.
>>250317131gyaru need love too
>>250318435Because she's not liked very much compared to the rest of the cast.
>>250319035Lots of love
>Searching for an opponent...
>>250322436You're going to bed early this time nightmare?Oh wellNighty night nightmare.
There's some surprisingly tough people on the move in ranked at this hour, even below D rank.Getting pretty motivated. A good workout in preparation for the upcoming tournaments.
>>250313078No they're cool!
>>250325575Good luck anon.you will do well.
>>250323310"the beetus" probably lowered his blood sugar and he needs to pass out before he crushes another cd in his hands.
>>250326160Attendance not guaranteed, unfortunately.But if I do get to compete, I will win it for you all - for /soul/, and in memory of old man /scvg/.Name withheld to protect my innocence, but you better cheer me on if you see a familiar name on stream, yeah?
>>250326762I will cheer any /soul/ poster on!No matter where :)
>>250326762Good luck anon! Just know we got your back, even if you lose, you are still one of our top dogs out there on the battlefield.
>>250325575The soul still burns.
Oh god the pedos are here
>>250330593But talim is cute!
>>250331147>armpits not hairy
>>250330593I've been here the whole time. Watching and waiting from the shadows.
>>250331482yeah well you need to stay in the shadows, pedoscum
>>250331471One day a CaS item will come that is hairy allowing us to place it under the girls pits just for you.
>>250332504With even more womb tattoos!
So which one of you is GoreKitten83?
>>250333353Ah don't name drop folk!poor form!
>>250333353I am GoreKitten83!
/soul/ belongs to the talimchads now
>>250333353Yeah I taunted and winquitted, the fuck you gonna do
>>250333903>>250334297Don't let him know!
>>250333548GoreKitten83 is a PS4 player on record as getting so impossibly tilted if you BM him that he actively doxxes you. There's stories about him rumbling up and down right now.
>>250333353>>250333903He's lying, I am Gorekitten83!!
>>250336157>>250336965He does not sound very nice.
FFFFFFUCK Kilik and his bullshit ringouts.
>Win a match against Yoshi>Challenges me back>He's doing great, down 2-0>Third round he gets first blood>Game crashes on impactDamn, now I look like a filthy ragequitter.
>>250310134That's why everyone gets their own Soul Chronicle.They all get their time in the limelight.
>>250343794With a little clever writing and planning we could have the best of both worlds.
>>250341357you could msg him.
>>250344727You expect too much of reality.Unless they announce they have unlimited budget sometime soon, then I'm all for it.
>>250346276Steam messaging is bullshit, you gotta add them first before you can even message. I miss hate mail...
>>250346939I don't expect it, I know it's beyond the scope of their budget. But I'd really, really love it. How do we convince the Golden Heihachi to dump funds on soul calibur, lads?
>>250348949We support our localsTry to get out to majorsShill the game on social mediaWatch streams so it gets numbers outside of majors/team sp00kyAnd pray Harada-senpai notices us
>>250352209>teabagging at a sproutNo dignity.
>>250353328The Groh player is BlueGod, the guy who was in the Grand Final at the recent April Annihilation.
>>250326762Don't worry my boy, you're not the only one going with the same goal in mind.
not actually teabagging...unblockable cancel spamming. is it still BM? i dunnoOn another note I've had people tapping block once or twice after winning is that BM? do I need to track them down and ruin their life?
>>250354737meant for >>250353328 >>250352209
>>250354737If I'm not facing my opponent's body at the end of a round, I'll tap block once to turn towards them. No BM intended; I have Mina's 1K for that.
>>250304030Nice nice, hella dank
>boohoo xianghua does no damage>except she has a billion dishonest mixups that lead to 10 hit air combos that take 30% of your healthIn all seriousness it's so rare to see one in ranked. They're fun to fight.
>>250370675and now i sleep.
>>250354229Here's hoping we're going to the same tournaments and can hang out and have some sick sets, guy.
>16 winstreak on the same guy>wins once>quitstsk tsk I was about to quit too
>>250375864The best outcome. You know you've won 16 times x 2 when they're the ones to get out because the heat's too real, they get a win in and derive whatever scraps of merriment from that, and you don't need to feel like a quitter.
>run into some F rank Amy>start out with a solid lead thinking I'll quit after getting 5 straight, he gets one as he picks up my habits>suddenly he has an answer for all of my on block movement tendencies and I eat a couple of 3-0s>sweating bullets as we go neck and neck, everyone ducking throws and blocking 2ks at the last pixel of life into full comebacks constantly>eventually he gets 5 straight and I'm the one trying to claw him back down, trading streaks of 2s and 3s, been playing 2 hours straight by now>game DCs us on the rematch black screen with me having a 3 winstreak, but I'm still not satisfied nor think I've bested him God I love deathmatch.
>>250377418>tfw similar sets with 2 Amys last night, cut short by Steam shitting the bed and neither to be seen afterFinally started to figure out the matchup, too...Even better set against some E5 Sieg, though. BM'ing fucker, but he knew his tricks, and got humbled as the set dragged on and the power struggle was getting more real.
>>250377418>>250379205>Fight 2B as Sieg>Lose 5 in a row>Get sad and switch to Amy for daughteru power>Run into same 2B cause 200 Steam players>Win 5 in a rowThey were great matches from both times though. Everything just felt so polite.
Stop being positive
>>250381524No, I will enjoy deathmatching E ranks and getting 1 rp per win because it's fun
>>250381872This it not the place to be positive, there's no news, the game is dead and RE is still in
>>250381928I won a few matches thanks to reversal edge recently!Bless you Okubo!
>>250379721Observing the development of the set from furious trick bag shit flinging into a calm respectful competitive bout of determination and perseverance is something you don't really see in many games, man. It's great.
>>250381524>>250381928Alright, alright, sorry, back to business. Fun's dead and done with.Fuck RE, dead game.
>>250382009My opinions on RE fluctuate like mad the deeper I go into ranked, man.The deeper I go the more people know where to put it to use to get out of ambiguous situations for free, but I am also blowing it up more because I am learning to counter it harder due to it being used so much.
>>250309080Probably because they need to make a special event for it (like the Weapon Master event last month). With Evo Japan already done, I don't think there are any typical 'majors' to latch onto here.
>>250384718I know right?Before I getting frustrated that my momentum was getting stuffed and I was forced to make harder callouts, but it really turns out to be just another facet. Like yeah, there's situations where you're only just plus enough that you can't beat out RE with a mixup option. So then you just do a safe poke, step, and RE gets blown up for a million damage. Or you just end up stuffing RE entirely and they take 18% guard damage while you keep your turn, daring them to do it again. Nothing more satisfying than reading their read. Then, there situations like plus enough that RE gets beat out entirely, or launching a grounded opponent who's panicking and thinks RE will get them out of jail free... lastly, the satisfaction of hitting someone with A+B because you called that shit a mile away.I only ever use it on a good opponent when I've fought enough rounds against them to know where they get antsy or careless. Because well, it's like you said - once you find opponents who know where to put their REs without getting stuffed, you start figuring out where you should expect them. It's definitely a mechanic that's got layers and that's why I've come to accept it. Also started doing a lot of guarding or using a movement option round 1 if I get hit by it, depending on the RO options on our moves, my health lead/deficit and so on. Preferable to get hit by a non lethal K or B from Cervantes if I have the lead than risk eating 90 damage second round.I still think it takes too long though, and honestly I'd prefer if it lead to less damage for the initiator. Characters like 2B you always want to use defensive options against, because round 2 lethals delete your health.
>RE apologistsSo that's how far we have fallen
How can I make her more skinhead-ish?
>>250372630kek yes i remember that shop.
>>250390980i am awake spooky golem.
>>250390980I WISH I was asleep to begin with. Work, work.
>>250391878Misery loves company.
>>250392535I'm gonna play so much Soulcalibur VI when this is done, man...ALL the Soulcalibur VI.
I want to nut inside Taki and not take responsability.
>>250393808That's how you end up with Natsus.
>>250395581Is that why Natsu is blonde?
It's my birthday /sou/ can I get some news as a gift?
>>250396054Nah it's because she is supposed to be a gal/gyaru
>>250397065Why do I feel like that game made fun of Natsu every time it could?
>>250397172To be honest, I think it took the piss of every ninja in the cast, from turbo-serious Hiryu and Hotsuma (team them up with Pai and wait for the Ninja in China bit), to stoic Kagemaru doing the classic ninja boat ride pose. I think the only one who may have gotten away was Hibana but IIRC even she took some from... Ulala, I think. Then again, I can remember Morrigan complimenting Natsu's fighting skills. I wouldn't read too much into it, considering it's the game where Heihachi fucking Mishima hires Phoenix fucking Wright as his brief.
>>250396376How old are you? What would like birthday boy/gal?
>>25039869524 I just want some good news for the game
>>250399539>>250304030Also me. I am good news!
>>250399437Both Project X Zone 1 and 2 are great fun. Pure fanservice and shameless about it.
>>250401082>Another waifuturdGib Algol namco pls
>>250404663Not a waifu, that's a sea roach.
>>250405195Shellfish is better.
>>250405434But too vague. Her turkish origin must be celebrated. Plus I'm tired of writing shellfish over and over.
>>250405708Aha so you did get bored of writing Turkish too!
>>250406754No! I just like roach more!
>>250406804Call her crabby!I like crabs.
>>250406936Isopods are cuter.
>>250407038Lobsters are tastier.
>>250408181Have you eaten an Isopod?
>>250408409It's now on my list of things to eat now!
>>250397172>Why do I feel like that game made fun of Natsu every time it could?Because she's a joke.
>>250411538>spam A+B>spam 2A+B>spam 1B
>>250411902>>250411538WHERE YOU GOING!?YOU JERK!FLY!FALL!YOU'RE MINE!!
>>250411902who does this actually work on except you?
>>250412332A lot of guy actually.Except for A+Bt. mina player
>>250412332Yeah who'd fall for cyclic spam like that ha ha.
Just jacked it to tira 3 times last night.I love her exposed stomach and torn top. I want to grope her snow white breasts and navel. I bet they are as soft as pillows.
>>250149352something about people calling them nihonto annoys me, no one does that with non japanese swords
how do i asta
>>250415919Throw some magets around.
>>250415751we call roman swords gladius plural gladi.Its just latin for sword.Same with greek xiphos.
>>250409170I want a gf like that
>>250417416No, bro, we call Roman short swords gladii and long swords spathae.
>>250419331>>250415751Why not call them cutting rods?
>>250149352What do they call Nihontos in japan? Just Tos?
>>250419331They are all examples of gladii!The short sword we know as gladius was known to the romans as gladius hispaniensis. specifically "spanish sword" until it just became their generic sword.
>>250419545as i understand it they usually just use jap word for sword but katana is sometimes used as a general term.
>>250419482I thought he was some kind of magic jew
Could remove Sophitia from ranked?Wrost character by far, no lows, all u gotta do is stand block to complicate her life. No combos so no punishment, short reach, slow, relatively weak, CE too short and slow, and on top of all that she is hard to execute-do not even think about playing her if you have any lag. When she is charged she is compared to the others in normal state. Total garbage. And if I'm not mistaken she got her only average low turned to mid, so she really has no lows now beside the joke kicks which are laughable short.If you think I'm wrong, go to theater and count how many times she beats an opponent of higher level and how many she looses to lower level players. The game is overall balanced now except for her. Removing her makes the game reasonable.
>>250421716Don't worry Cassandra will be her, but pay to win.
>>250415919Pokes, punishes, half grab, half dinky hits up close, big power hits far away. 22_88B is your friend. But you gotta play the mind games, there isn't much rush down, 66k and 6k help a lot, mix up your grabs into forward and backward grabs, most asty use backgrabs, but forward grabs will get good players, his revenge grab is great to start rounds and to end rounds. 236A is a great guard impact catcher that absolutely shits out damage.
>>250422339>mfw I finally realized that b6B counterhit guarantees a crouchgrabNow if only I knew what to do after a successful B+K grab.
>>250421716I know where you got this, anon
>>250421716That's from the steam discussion, you tricky trickster
>>250422281Cassandra will be the shellfishqueen!she will be the best character! And top of the meta! Just like Amy right now. Everyone will say good things about her and how fun she is to play! Many fan art and sfms will be created and cassposter will update his dakimakura!
I left when 2B came in and broke everything. Has she been nerfed?
>>250425847Yes, but now Amy's the piece of shit.
>>250426174Is more obnoxious than 2B was?
>>250423214If they guard impact a lot, go for 236B, bKK is a good option, I like A(B) and the revenge grabs. Otherwise a+b is good or you can 44B into something. You got options after the grab, use your mix up to confuse and lead into something else.
>>250425847Nah, she got buffed this last patch.
>>250426618I play voldo a lot, and most of my secondary characters (yoshi, asty, tira, ivy) dont hold up as well against her as I would like, but ive picked up raph reciently and hes does very well against her.
G'night /soul/. JUST KIDDING!
>>250428832Shut up, Chinaslut.
>>250428832Nighty night pretty flower of the East.
>>250425847>>250426174>2B goes into slide transition>Purple flower CE herOh God my balls
>>250424623She will be a flop and more hated to play against than Ivy was when she was at her worst, her design and weapons will look like garbage. Her outfit will be incompatible with almost everything the story will turn her into a boring mary sue everyone will hate Cass and when she is finally nerfed for being pay to win everyone will forget her except the Cassposter who will become an outcast like the guy who likes Natsu
>>250268406i played geralt and won with infinite soul charge combos
>>250303143thus explaining why his theme songs are so heroic
>>250417416its more of calling them all nihonto, as a collective term, instead of just saying japanese swords, imagine if someone was a weeb for indian or middle eastern swords, and called them by the native term
>>250430407Cass will be a great success!She will have wonderful weapons that remain true to her original xiphos and rotila but her own unique twist that will make cass poster envious of them. She will be the sassy cheeky tomboy that everybody loves.Cass poster will speak to the tira hentai artist and get commissions of her new outfit dakimakura! She will be challenging to fight at first like 2b and amy as people aren't used to fighting her but she will prove herself a strong character pick long term!And then Cass poster will cheer everyone else on for they're character picks in season 2 even natsufags!
>>250432282You mean like a Tulwar? I mean we do use native names for them. Like tomahawk that's just a British navy boarding axe sold to native Americans but we still use the Algonquian.
>>250433354I mean a collective name name for all the swords, I'm not talking about using Japanese names for Japanese swords like katana and wakizashi, I'm talking about using the word nihonto, instead of saying Japanese swords. I've seen this a few times recently, and it bugged me, seems weird and pretentious
>>250435208Romana arma.Yes but seriously it is pretentious but that's kinda the point. I get annoyed by made up names for things that people in the past had a name for. Seriously "falcata" isn't real it's just made up! The Greeks and Romans would of called them kopis or makhaira. We have julius caesar telling us what they called them but we still use that stupid term.
>Losing so much I'm about to lose D1Fffffuck Taki, Tira, Sazalamel and kilik.
>>250436772I WISH I ENCOUNTER THESE CHARACTERSFUCK I ALWAYS FIGHT AGAINST X OR AMY
>taki does no damage!>She can do a safe launcher into air grab off the ground for like 25% of your health
>>250438667>25% of your healthSo nothing.
>>250438667Takifags are pretty obnoxious with their "BUT WE NEED TO WORK MORE THAN ANYONE FOR THAT DAMAGE"
>>250438881>a quarter of your health off a launcher that lets you get up safely and avoid oki if you miss. Fuck you.
>>250436772You've done well anon don't be disheartened you can always push up again the path is not always a straight one.
>>250438667NO MY CHARACTER HAS NO OPTIONSEVERY OTHER CHARACTER HAS TOO MANY OPTIONS EXCEPT TIRA SHE SUCKS (THOUGH I'VE NEVER PLAYED HER AND RARELY PLAY AGAINST HER)
>>250442885Tira is fine, she can outspeed alot of the cast, and she does respectable damage. Fucking geralt is the worst, sung mina players are piss easy right now because all they do is the same shit over and over. Oh, geralt got a hit? 1/3rd of your life gone, crazy ringout game, and fast safe starters...
>>250442885And Raph, Raph is absolute garbage and he is the hardest character in the game he is so hard it's not even fair to compare him to other soulcalibur characters
nighty night /soul/.
>>250438917it's true tho, compared to your unga bunga characters
>>250438667Astaroth gets that from just a sidestep B
>>250444651I really want him to have options like Amy's 4A and 3A
Taki has better evasive options than everyone else. Everyone can eight way run but not everyone can jump 10 feet into the air or evasive roll under horizontals.
>>250444651His holds to keep in stance are nuts, started playing him not too long ago, I really do like how he plays, the lack of tracking on his verticals sucks plus low damage on combos. but hes a poke character, 23 pokes to kill instead of 3 combos from other characters, a friend of mine mains raph and zas, he has no idea how to do big combos, never watches or looks up any strats and combos, but his poke game is the best ive seen and his fundimentals are solid. He plays like the dirtiest fucker you have ever seen, but it works, has an xbox message from the top voldo saying hes too good for him to beat. My advice, get cheap as all hell, use RE more for meter, and spam quick poke moves that lead into other pokes.
>>250446026Cervy gun works well against her jump.
>>250445760Astaroth needs to be proactive to land a sidestep B and even then it's a risk. It's a reward for reading a vertical attack and stepping properly. Taki gets to land her launcher as a reward for fucking up and ending on the floor, and even if the opponent predicts or dodges it, she's safe by doing it.
>>250451408that launcher is pretty situational, stop complaining unga bunga boy.
>>250452697Yeah, the situation being "I fucked up and now I'm on the floor. How about I avoid Oki altogether while simultaneously get a shot at taking 30% of the enemy's health guaranteed.
>>250453049but anon, even if they take that move away from her you'll still lose to people better than you.maybe now you won't be so quick to unga on a face down Taki.
>>250458414That's fine, but they should stop pretending she has no damage options when she can take a third of your health by fucking up.
>stop playing before Amy's release>remember she's out>get her>spend a little while on training mode >decide to do some online matches >pic related happensIt's like they don't want me to come back.
>>250458627She has dmg it's just harder to do than your unga character.
>>250459520>Gets in everyone's face and pokes them until they die or get guard brokenNo, Taki. You are the Bunga.
>>250459512You get to learn now. Aren't you glad?
>>250459512that happened to me a while back>just want to fart around with Maxi in ranked,>3rd match in....>have to fight Richsticks
>>250459835You know why they call it possession stance? because your ass is mine
>>250460104>fart around with Gerardo del Rio>Make it to F rank>Fight that one super famous Geralt tourney player whose name I can't rememberHe was E-Rank for some reason but I was so thoroughly ravaged I don't think I've touched Jerry in ranked since.
>>250459512It took 5 minutes to get another match and it was against a 16k OC. I don't feel very motivated now.
>>250460530Well, it's kind of late in the game's life cycle. There's less newbies and more D-upwards ranked players than before. Just stick it out, anon, I've fought tons of lower ranks these days. They exist and can't wait to meet you.
>>250460682It's disheartening, I haven't played in months and I can't get the rust off against the AI or players that are so much better than me so I feel stuck.
>play better against good players because it's mostly neutral and oki>Play like shit vs UNGA spammers because I don't know anyone's strings and can't be asked to waste time labbing> Sometimes the good players I'm playing against figure this out and just starts spamming and beats me because I don't know what to do against their character
BOOM! just took out a D5 raph with my G rank raph, looks like I got nowhere to go but up.
>>250460292I do not lke this picture, Charlie.
>>250460868I guess I'll stick to creating cute outfits for my favorite girls.
>>250460868keep at it anon, you can do it! there are still shitters out there you can fight, I know because I'm one of those shitters!
>>250462079Yeah but to find them I have to fight with 15k+ dudes who taunt guys with literally 0 RP and use crappy CaS with extremely distorted voices. God fucking damn I love this game but I sometimes hate playing it.
>>250462391it's ok you only have to fight them once, and then you can losequit or winquit them!
Why do Yoshimitsu fights always end up producing hilarious results, win or lose? Yoshis can be pricks sometimes but the character just ends up in the funniest situations.
>>250462597Nah, keep going, at least best of 3, just got my ass kicked 15 times in a row in a raph mirror match B rank. The experience was worth it, ive figured out alot of new tricks, and whoever says raph isnt good... Let me tell you. Hes got some jank. The good kind.
