Next Level Battle Circuit adds GGXrd to Roster

  • If you live or work in the NYC area, chances are you know of Battle Circuit, Next Level Arcade's weekly Wednesday tournament. Starting this Wednesday, October 28th, Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- will make its debut to the weekly alongside staple Ultra Street Fighter IV! Be sure to come out in force in support of the title, and take full advantage of the amazing competition that the NYC scene has to offer!





Henry Cen, co-owner of Next Level Arcade in Brooklyn, NY, has been garnering community interest in the past month to whether or not to include Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- in the weekly lineup of Battle Circuit. Luckily, the time has come for GGXrd to make its Battle Circuit debut.


This is not the first time that Anime/Airdash fighters have been featured alongside the staple Ultra Street Fighter IV at the tournament, as titles such as UNIEL, Persona 4 Arena, KOFXIII, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, MKX, and Killer Instinct have also graced the tourney halls in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. 


Expect players such as TSB|mynus, TS|NerdJosh, Lost Soul, Liston the Prince, PsychoDM, Blazeu25, Tinshi, Hard Bread, TS|XAQshinor, and other NYC competitors to make a showing to the kickoff. 


Hopefully GGXrd can keep up respectable entry numbers to make it a regular at the weekly tournament moving forward, so be sure to come out and lend your support of Guilty Gear Xrd!


As always, Next Level Battle Circuit is streamed by Team Spooky and/or Arturo Sanchez (TS|Sabin).

    • Since GG1 (I call it GGTML) was announced for PS4/Steam/Nintendo Switch, I figured we should AT LEAST have a thread about it. Whether it's news updates or just overall a review of the old gameplay (however ridiculous that might sound), we can talk about it here. Based on the ARCLive Stream clips so far, it's HD, so that will make things interesting.  No idea if it has Netplay, but if it's on Switch, I don't see why it wouldn't (which would be an interesting twist). If someone wants to make a Discord room for this game, that can happen once we know more about it. Anyway: stuff you might want to know: Holding Respect while Blocking = Faultless Defense Up Button + Respect from Knockdown = Recovery Taunt in the Air = Air Turn (similar to GG Isuka) Special Move Input + Respect = Charge Attack (Axl, Justice, and Testament don't have charge moves though, so they can't charge cancel). If you lose 50% Health (Yellow Lifebar) = Unlimited Chaos Attacks/Overdrive moves, highly spammable. If you get a running start you can "Crash" in to your opponent using a Breaker Dash (like EX Order Sol), though I think it's Meter-dependent.  Crash moves have an OTG relaunch ability (like Chipp's). Certain moves can cause Dust on counterhit, and other moves can buffer Instant Kill state on counterhit as well (Testament had a few normal like this). Instant Kill state (Red screen) is basically like "Danger Time", you have to input 214+any or 236+any to do an IK or evade one, though if you evade it certain stuff happens. Sometimes evading puts you in a different position on the stage, and can put you in the corner. Certain versions of this game are buggy (I've seen Ky perform his IK full screen distance away not touching his opponent), not sure if that will be fixed (though I haven't seen many bugs in the Japanese version of GG1 so you never know). That's it for now.

    • well someone awesome scanned the whole central fiction material collection (画集・設定資料集)_BLAZBLUE_CENTRALFICTION_公式設定資料集.zip
    • So I’ve gone through a few threads and I’ve seen a lot of people saying just block until your opponents pressure is over, but it seems like a good player’s pressure is never over in this game. I don’t know if I just need practice, but it seems like reversal DPs don’t work. I find myself getting put in blockstun and then blocking for 20 seconds and eventually get opened up and it’s over. Am I missing something or do I really just need to block all day?
