    [CF] Arakune Video Database

    http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm27828701?ref=search_key_video Giketomato vs Sukoya Azrael FT5. Super interesting to see the 6b guard point in action, I thought they took that out in the loketests. If it's re-upped to YT then I'll add it in the OP.
  2. Arakune has unique use for EA, since his OD activates curse as long as there's any amount if curse built he had the tools to make his EA safe on whiff and even make a blockstring out of it. Some characters might be able to DP through it though. Also with a lower curse gauge and higher OD it may be better to not EA so you can re-curse easier in OD.
  3. Man but that BBCF tho amiright guys?
  4. There's been a consistent November release for every BB arcade version except for CSE which landed October.
  5. Oy, I don't even know if anyone will read or care about my input, but from what I've read, I'll throw my 2 cents in. First off I think this forum was better when it was community oriented, sure you had the odd troll and foot posts, but with some feet being put down, it was generally kept to a minimum, since it went in favor of being information oriented, it certainly has declined. We, as staff, decided it was more important to keep the flow of information accurate at, what seemed to me, the direct expense of the people we are supposed to be doing it for, and correct information is important, don't misunderstand me, but it didn't have to come at the cost of stifling discussion. To realize what needs to happen to Dustloop comes down to the question, "what makes up our community"? Who counts as a member and who doesn't? The forum, and the information contained within is FOR the community, and everyone who decided to shut down off topic knew and even recommended that people should take off topic discussion to social media, or anywhere outside DL's jurisdiction. If this thread is of any indication, that is what shot DL forums in the foot, because anyone who went to social media, stayed on social media because it was easier and more welcoming to community discussion. It feels like I'm talking in a circle, so I guess my point is; The off topic discussion comes with the package, take it or leave it. Should it be moderated for abusive or completely apropos posts and comments? Yes, but I think it should be allowed, it's simply letting the community talk to one another, they'll either do it here or not, and the choice to emphasize an information database was in essence telling the community to fuck off of DL, and they sure did. The worst assholes should be infracted or banned, without external discussion, if you're on the fence about it, we have warnings, if you're not sure and need guidance, the staff can communicate internally, but the choice and action should be done decisively. and without engaging with a member outside of the warning/infraction/ban in question. One, maybe two forum posts warning people to get back on topic is necessary, the users who understand that there are rules to be followed will understand, the super rebellious assholes aren't wanted here and should be banned regardless. That leads into my next criticism, a lot of the staff have waaaaaaaay too little tolerance and get upset too easily. For years I've seen people overreact at some guy just voicing his opinion or misrepresent something, sure he may be new and speaking on insufficient experience, but reacting and responding in a short tempered fashion is not the way to do it. If people are going to mod, some level of patience and anger management is needed. I'm not here to call people out, but that kind of attitude WILL drive off new users and even users who've been here for a while, the communication of the community is a learning experience for players of varying levels of skill and not everyone is gonna have the same mindset, it's not a hivemind and shouldn't be treated as such, if someone has the wrong idea about something and it turns into a debate, that's fine, if it gets out of hand or overstays it's welcome and moderation is needed, that's also fine, I've always been the type of guy to see things proven right or wrong through gameplay, because unconventional thinking can lead to great things, I think those kinds of debates should be interjected with that kind of mindset, even if the user in question is outright wrong, he/she'll sooner learn in gameplay than they would being yelled at on a forum. I won't say "bring back the general threads", I have no hard suggestions on how to bring DL back, this is just how I've observed things in my time as a user and a mod, but a change in attitude about the community is imperative. Edit: to expand on my point I think this is the core issue of DL, not the forum layout, not the amount of moderators. Large forums are not only nothing new, they're common, try going to your average anime forum or a cellphone forum, or even a different FG forum, large layouts happen with time and are not an issue with activity, and when forums grow in that fashion, it's only natural to have a good amount of mods, people who are passionate about whatever specific aspect of the forum and are willing to make sure it stays organized and neat, I think it's too much to downsize and ask a select few to take up that mantle, it's a free, thankless job.
  6. CT > CS didn't redo voices, they added some (not including new characters obviously), but none were overtly replaced, except for anyone yelling "BARRIER BURST". Imo less new/re dubbed voices means less time spent on translating and localizing since the assets are already in place, which is good.
  7. Argent, if you could, could you please repost your translations in the Arakune loketest thread? I'd really appreciate it.
  8. It's 2015 and people still hate Arakune. In a game with Nu, Litchi, Azrael, Kokonoe, Mu, Tao, Valk. All I hope for is to return rising j.c, but it sounds like it either went untested, or it's still in, still like his other changes though.
  9. I like the streamlined approach to Arakune's specials and availability to use cloud on the ground. I just hope curse is worth it.
  10. I guess some people want more than brand new sprite work for 3 new characters, new moves, new stages, new balance, etc. I also guess BB isn't the game some people should be playing then.
  11. lmao not only is everyone already doing that, but what else is everyone gonna do until the famitsu release + loketest???
  12. Did no one notice that Jin has a new normal on top of his totally not Ky's j.d? Just wondering since no one mentioned it.
  13. What an adorable scuffle you've all embroilled yourselves into. Just imo, but SF4 is about as accessible as SF has always been, in that its always been the popularity of the franchise, not the ease of the mechanics/characters, Xrd particularly is better as anime games are on average more fluid and easier to move without being punished, throw in a small buffering window (fuck plinking) and YRCs (like em or not they're made to be more accessible) and you've got yourself a game that is easier to pick up and play, because lets face it your entry window SF player will be jumping around and doing 236 motions without the rhyme or reason to understand neutral, and knowledge of neutral is imperative to everything in SF, and it's also very barebones in SF, more options (like ones usually presented in anime games like barrier blocking, double jumps, air dashes, more lenient and abundant special cancels, more gatlings and less links, air blocking, running, instant blocking) are going to be more welcoming to a newer player, because you can fake it til you make it a lot easier.

    [CPEX] Kagura Mutsuki - Combo Thread

    Does it do more damage than 6dc CH > 6c > 6da > 2da > a orb > 5b > 3c > 2dc > 5da > 6dc? If not this could be the "more damage but no Oki" version, has its uses.

    What's the optimal meterless combo off of 6c in the corner? I got 6c > 6d-a > 5d-a > 1d-a > [1]6a > 5b > 3c > 3d-c > 3d-c > [2]8c > 2c > 2d-b for 5471

    Problem is you'll be getting smashed up by other things now, j.b didn't just go away (if we can even say that it did), it was traded for tools just as good or even more dangerous if we're looking at it from a risk/reward position.

    I didn't speak to anyone concerning Liz, just reading impressions down the grapevine. She's still considered a bad character thus far. That's all.

    There are quite a few JP players who are very nice and approachable concerning the game/characters over twitter, a few of them even know a little english. It won't kill anyone to try themselves. With the networking I've pulled off, I've learned that the general consensus is that both Shos are better than previous versions, Sho has much better damage conversion off of 25% meter expenditure, around 4k I believe it was. Minazuki is the real grind. His damage is higher, he's much faster with the combination of the reduction of hitstop of his normals as well as the persona normals being much faster now, 5c ground bounce has opened up so man combo opportunities he gets good damage off of basically anything. The new discovery by Shiita of implementing 5c > delay 5b (1) > j.a > j.b > j.c > j.d (whiff) into air confirms has made this character really powerful. So basically his base damage (especially off of AA 2b) is higher, his damage conversion is significantly higher, and his punish game is ridiculously higher, all with the same or less resources. Yeah. I told you guys he'd be better, that 5a/j.b nerf was a fucking placebo. Well enjoy your cake guys! That frosting isn't chocolate! He's definitely looking to be a consistent top tier character. RIP Yosuke, Teddie, Liz, are the general opinions I've heard, one early tier list showed Yosuke at C tier. imo with the videos I've watched, the newcomers to look out for are S.Labrys (Shadow Regular Labrys) and S.Junpei.
  23. 5c > 2c will only work midcombo if it's a FC combo, so the 2nd listed combo; (FC? not listed)2D>IAD jB>2B>5B>5C>2C>5D>teleport>2A > 5B(1) > 5C > 214B > 4B > 4A twould have to be FC 2d. It looks like 5c will really become the standard punish tool. Also wtf I used twitter for networking and Shiita actually gave me a follow back, between him and guyman, we can bounce ideas for good damage.
