    10wljkn.jpg

     

    This year was a huge year at Evolution 2015 for anime and airdasher games. Guilty Gear Xrd and Persona 4 Ulimax were present in the line up of main Evo games, Arc System Works hosted the US Arc Revolution Qualifier for both Guilty Gear Xrd 3v3 and Blazblue Chronophantasma Extend 3v3, and a huge community run event known as AnimEvo hosted a multitude of side tournaments ranging from large BBCPE and UNIEL tournaments that quickly capped at 128 players to other games like Arcana Heart 3 Love Max and Vampire Savior. Competition was fierce this year and all games had good showings which included international players from Japan. Overall the event was a huge success, so please send your thanks and support to the crew at AnimEvo.

  5. Forum Upgrade This Weekend (August 1-2)

    3.4 to 4.0

    We currently run IPS 3.4, and 4.0 was released back in April.

    Upgrade Will Be Longer Than Usual

    This is a major change, so downtime will be much longer than usual, as I want to download a backup of the servers in case things go horribly wrong. There are no good estimates for how long this will take, but I expect at least a few hours (and possibly a whole day) will be needed.

    I plan on starting this late Saturday night if I'm free by then. If not, then Sunday.

    Why Upgrade?

    The key feature that interests us is front page should be more configurable. The forums should also see slight improvements as well.

    Why Didn't You Upgrade Sooner?

    This is a major upgrade. Typically this means major parts of the software has been rewritten and as such, certain features may unexpectedly go missing. I was hesitant to upgrade due to this, but seeing as we're trying to make the Front Page actually useful now, and 4.0 promises more options to do so, I've finally decided to bite the bullet.

  13. Xrd Google Doc to Find Players/Matchups

    GGXrd_Logo.png

    About

    Now you're wondering why I've brought you all here. The reason why I decided to create this google doc is basically for the sake of being able to find players for the matchups that you lack or wish to get more experience in. Another reason is to find and identify many of the people who play these characters to varying degrees that many people may not even know of. Since starting Guilty Gear (with Xrd) I had to play a lot of catch up and had a pretty difficult time finding certain matchups. Even OG's lack experience against some of the newer characters who can give trouble, but I noticed specifically harder for a lot to find Bedman, so hopefully an open google doc where people can input their own information will create a much quicker way to find what you're looking for. There was about 1,000 people at EVO this year for Xrd and I'm hoping at least 40 or 50% can find this doc and input info. So just keep sharing.

    Also as I'm starting to notice. This is a great way to help identify people that are near your scene that you didn't even know existed. Very great way to start having people come to your casuals so hit em up.

  21. "Time to Make History" Dustloop Revamp Community Effort #1

    Hi Dustloop,

    As promised, I've created a thread for the resurrection of Dustloop. After receiving feedback, we've realized that one of the biggest issues is...

    The Front Page

    This includes the lack of articles, informational content, and promotion of community efforts.

    How would you change this? Please leave any suggestions for improving this issue as a response to this post. Currently, one of the greatest issues for generating content is a lack of motivation. If anybody would like to help contribute to the front page, please speak up.

    Once again, please continue to leave any other feedback regarding issues or potential changes to Dustloop.

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zdYq0ruR9CGwhzGcMG-tDZPca3oU75y5AnbkvrkD0ps/viewform

    And if you want to reply to this topic, use the thread in the Site Feedback section http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php/topic/11071-time-to-make-history-dustloop-revamp-community-effort-1/?view=getnewpost

    Thanks!

    • This thread still active? Could always use ass whoopings to help me get better. :D
    • Preorders for the Makoto figure by BellFine are now open. Release date is December 2017 http://www.bell-fine.co.jp/products/blazblue_cf/bf027.html
        Additionally, a recolor with her CF color number 8 (the Ragna reference) will be available exclusively from Surugaya (http://www.suruga-ya.jp/blog/?q=「BLAZBLUE CENTRALFICTION」より特別カラーのマコト=ナナヤが駿河屋限定カラーで登場!.html#article-details) http://www.bell-fine.co.jp/products/blazblue_cf/bf028.html
         
    • In P4U the auto-combo system gave everyone a unique normal string (normals that could only be done in the auto-combo and no inputs exist to use them outside of it i.e. Narukami's 5AAA must be preformed by doing 5A > 5AA > 5AAA) that usually consisted of three attacks though some characters have more. Additional light attack inputs would result in a special attack (for Narukami it was his air light Raging Lion special) and after that a super if you had the meter for one (again for Narukami it was light Ziodyne). This auto combo could be used on it's own for those who don't know how to combo, but, unlike the auto-combo system of BB or even the recent Marvel VS. Capcom Infinite, this auto-combo could be used within other combos. Here is an example from P4AU with Narukami, with brackets showing where the auto combo is: (In corner) (Fatal Counter): Heavy Raging Lion > [5A > 5AA > 5AAA > Air Light Raging Lion] > 5A > 5C > 2C > Heavy Raging Lion > Cross Slash. I like the idea that the auto-combo is a tool for players of all skill levels rather than just a crutch for inexperienced players. Also, no walking? Will this hurt footsies and spacing with characters who need micro-adjustment (like my boi Hakumen)? What about characters who can't run in the first place (also like my boi Hakumen)?
    • P4A and CF does have autocombos, however, in CF case, only in Stylish mode
    • Well, UNIEL does have auto-combos, but I haven't played P4A or BB:CF to compare one to another.  How are P4A's and BB's different?  One is not just spamming the same button?
