  1. A strong way to utilize melee is as punishment for certain gaps. During boostdash startup you cannot step, so aiming to melee that post-BD gap is very powerful. For example, at mid-range, if both you and your opponent would normally do a BR, boost dash, BR style of engagement. If your opponent does BR, boostdash forward, BR as an aggressive play, your response of BR, boostdash towards them (7/9) 6B can often win. This is especially effective when you are feigning retreat, say by boost dashing away, in order to get the opponent to give chase. This straight up loses if they choose to respect that zone, wait-and-see, or bait melees, obviously, but hopefully this is a useful example of how entering space with melee during certain timings can be a strong gamble. Also note that this kind of thing works even with average melees, and is a great thing to throw out especially when you don't have very good subtle options (for example, as a 2K being assaulted by a 3K in burst). Like fighting games, it's a useful gambit based on reading your opponent's mental state (aggressive / overcommitted) With regards to opponents rainbowstepping, note that you can only rainbowstep while in a melee (or various BC etc) state, so if you're having trouble getting your melee rainbowstep'd, they're probably attempting to melee you already. If you know you're going to get into a rainbowstep war and want to bail out, rainbow fuwastep backwards into main / amekyan / etc is a good soft way try and escape. Can lose to suits with insanely strong closing distance though.

    Since it's madcatz stream I was under the impression they will upload their own archives of it. If not, I will try and get a hold of them and upload them personally.

  5. It's also worth noting that form 3's side BC, and special movement BC, are both extreeeeeemely good. Also his 8B and Boost Dash Melee are both pretty godlike.
  6. Stream (starts at 4PM PST): twitch.tv/norcaldogfight Twitter: twitter.com/norcaldogfight
  7. Updated the thread to add a google document form for pre-registering. This keeps the information much more organized and is easier to follow / format. If you have already pre-registered in the thread, you do NOT need to use the form. Preregister here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1bZLHZYtufmVE-17fgSD51t2TzwOh71srCmzB38EVREw/viewform?usp=send_form
  8. If you're officially requesting A.Exia as part of your pre-reg team, then we will guarantee it. If you just want it there for casuals, I can't guarantee but a bunch of PS3s will probably have him

  10. Honestly cant remember by just the description, I'd need to read the JP, but its possible that you might be trying to enter a room that has banned your connection quality. Also it does give you messages when you d/c informing you that you've received a penalty for disconnecting (its not serious but if you d/c over a certain threshold your name changes color) The patch is up already on JP PSN, I'm not sure about HK.

    [FB] General Discussion Thread

    @akai_GO: Some minor corrections: -Note that GP can be used to permanently purchase Navi / HUD DLC (everything except suits is permanent basically) -Re-GZ's MA mode mobility nerf actually says that the mobility reduction is RELATIVE to the height he's at, in the sense that his mobility goes down the higher he ascends. -EX meter gain rate for Re-GZ / Norn was increased, they specified. Its also worth noting that the new rerelease of EXVSFB console PS3 port is only 3800 yen guys! (physical OR downloadable). Get your friends to play :D
  12. It's a main -> sub cancel. Normally if you do this, because both Main and Sub do not cause vernier while on angle, you'll be stuck in a mid-air sidestep animation. However if you do this at the very edge of off angle, your off-angle (causes vernier) main shot will become an on-angle main shot. Basically do an out of angle step main -> sub right at the edge of off-angle and you'll get this effect. This is kind of similar to how sometimes if you use WTV's CS main at the tip of on-angle, it'll turn into an off-angle halfway through and nothing will happen.
  13. You're correct about waiting for a landing punish. If you have a wide shot or are on-angle and don't think he's going to step, like you mentioned, you can try and cut, and you can always try and fire while you're falling since you might as well. But generally yeah if they're doing a cut resistant combo you're actually reducing your chance of cutting by wildly firing. It definitely sucks when your teammate dies that way but since you get the landing punish usually, your not losing out too much in terms of damage race. Also note that while this is occuring, the opponent's second player is probably attacking you to stop a cut, so you may get hit for attempting to cut the melee. A very common losing pattern is: 1) Partner gets hit by melee 2) You attempt to cut opponent, but miss 3) You get hit by his partner because you overboosted, and get knocked down 4) Partner gets 2v1'd on oki and hit
  14. There's something called Casual night that happens once or twice a week for more beginning / intermediate players - I don't remember who to talk to for that but I think there's a thread? Might still be DoubleTaco, not quite sure, but following him on twitter would probably be the most direct way. Team Free rooms generally pop up pretty often during peak hours. You can also try some of the various facebook groups, such as Team aBc, or Operation North America (I'm not sure whether this one is still active though). You can try the #gafgundam channel on EFNet on IRC too. There's a Skype chat floating about but I'm not sure whether it's open invite or a exclusive sub-community. There's also a LINE chat I've started up for anyone interested, anyone can just ask me for an invite for it. On twitch a small group of players generally coordinate and play periodically in my channel as well.
