    [CP] News & Gameplay Discussion (Old)

    Whoops, I probably should have read this before posting in the News thread, but I was a little excite after reading Aksys's news page regarding CP. So Kagura's going to come with the game? I thought both he and Terumi were supposed to be DLC, with Terumi coming out first.
  2. U.S. version of Chrono Phantasma confirmed for 2014 by Aksys. http://www.aksysgames.com/2013/06/11/blazblue-chrono-phantasma-enters-the-us/ Perhaps more interestingly, one line of info reads "Chrono Phantasma will introduce five new characters and two new downloadable characters, bringing the roster list to 26!" Considering we only know that Terumi is DLC so far, that would imply there's one more character that will come as DLC that we don't know about yet. EDIT: Fix'd. Sorry for the mistake.

    Reaction Time Analysis

    Another factor is being able to identify/distinguish the animation of the attack you need to react to. For example, even though Jin's 6A has 2 frames less startup than Tsubaki's 6A, his overhead is still easier to react to because of the sword spin, and her overhead is harder to react to because the startup of its animation is very similar to her 6B (a low). If you think of things that way, your reaction time isn't really processing anything until you notice what differentiates the mix-up from something else. Does that make sense?

    So, the Kagura/Terumi trailer on Arc System Works's channel has a very clear shot of the emblem at the end. Any ideas?

    This seems important. Also, in the screens involving Kagura's specials, Jin can be seen Barrier blocking in the first: But getting hit in the second: Maybe it's meant to imply it's unblockable? EDIT: Okay, last edit, I promise. But DAMN, that middle picture - I don't think feet are meant to bend that way, Kagura.

    Bloodscythe isn't an overhead? What the fuck, ArcSys.

    Awesome, it looks like Survival Mode is making a return as well. I hope that means Abyss Mode will be making a return in the console version of CP too.

    Are we even sure people are running Gear at this point? The lack of info regarding that tournament is a little unsettling.
  12. Oh hey, I recognize that name. You're the guy that does those awesome Yu tutorials. Just wanted to pop in and say great work with those, and thanks for putting them together. I just hope I don't end up facing you at Final Round, haha.

    [Mar 29-31, 2013] FINAL ROUND XVI - Atlanta, GA

    Awesome, thanks for clarifying. I haven't played BB in a really long time, so I'm sure I'll get destroyed, but I'll be super hype to play it again. :D
  14. Good games on PSN today. You have a really solid Yosuke, and the connection we played on was one of the best I've experienced in a long time. I'm sure you would have taken a few matches from me if it were a little bit better, though- I noticed it screwed up your Dash Under 2C punish on my DP a couple times. :/ But yeah, keep up the good work! Hope I get to play you again some time.

    [Mar 29-31, 2013] FINAL ROUND XVI - Atlanta, GA

    So just to clarify, the Guilty Gear side tournament is happening on Friday, and the Blazblue side tournament is happening on Saturday, right? And do either have confirmed times?
  16. HOLY CRAP HEY I thought Dustloop had been feeling more epic recently. Now I know why.

  17. Thanks for hosting the room on Xbox Live tonight. Your Yosuke seems pretty good from what I saw- you use spacing to your advantage really well. Try not to use the dash special into Moonsault so much in your blockstrings, though. Knowledgeable players will jump backwards and air grab you out of it for free. :

    I agree. But if Litchi and Hakumen are any indication, you don't need fantastic mobility to rank high on the tier list. I'm not trying to say Amane has something he doesn't- I just don't think his flaws are as exaggerated as everyone (and to an extent, the tier list) is making them out to be.
  19. Jackie Chandler

    [CP] News & Gameplay Discussion (Old)

    Yeah, their mobility is freaking amazing- that's why their offense is equally great. I wasn't doubting their place in the list. I was just making the observation that Amane, who has a similar flaw in his defensive game, ended up on the other end of the tier list. Not sure if this was intended as an insult or not, but I totally agree. There's only so much I can grasp from watching gameplay videos. That doesn't mean I'm not going to make judgements based on what I see in those videos, though. I've noticed that. Even utilizing instant blocking, his close range normals don't seem all that great to interrupt pressure with, and his Distortion doesn't seem all that great for the purpose, either. There's always Counter Assault, but it sucks to have to waste meter just to make up for that fact. As for the damage part, his combo damage (especially outside Level 3) doesn't seem like the best, but CP BnB's don't seem to do all that much damage anyway (save a few characters, and especially when compared to Extend's). Besides, it doesn't seem hard at all to get to Level 3 Drill, and since his chip damage on it is so great, people are going to be expending Barrier to prevent it and make the moves even more positive than they normally are. Not that I really know the frame data on all those moves, but conceptually... Yeah, it's a thing. It might not be all that impressive in tourney play, but that doesn't change the fact that they do ridiculous damage if not Barriered, and that there are setups Amane can put you in where you have to block them. You can use your Barrier, sure, but it's definitely a much more finite resource than other BB's, and with the way Crush Triggers and Amane's specials work, it'll be much more difficult to know when you need to use it. I do agree with that last part, though. The hitboxes for most of his moves seem geared toward either a long or close-range, with not much emphasis on the mid-range. If he's kept at a mid-range, I do think he'd have trouble against a lot of opponents- but his mobility doesn't seem so skewed that he couldn't do an airdash forward or backward to alleviate that problem and put his range back into viability. EDIT: I understand that, but Barrier is a very important, much more limited resource in CP. Like I said above, it doesn't seem hard for Amane to get to Level 3- just a few blocked specials (which your opponent will likely see fit to Barrier anyway) and you're there. In the hands of someone who knows how to play the character, you will rarely see Amane's drill gauge overheat (though I will admit, it seems like an annoying mechanic to micromanage). And it's not like you can just use up all your Barrier and be perfectly okay until you get it back- because you get put into Danger for losing it all in CP, you have to be careful about when you do and don't use it. Against a good Amane, there WILL be times where you'll have to eat chip damage before you run out of Barrier, because if you don't, you'll lose even more health than you normally would. As for his mixups, yeah, they definitely seem like some of the worst in the game. But if he had good mixups on top of the whole godly chip mechanic thing, he'd be kind of ridiculous. tl;dr- I acknowledge Amane's flaws, but I think his unique offense is a strong plus, and I still don't think he belongs in C-tier. Judging from the performances I've seen in videos, I'd put him in mid to high B-tier, at the lowest.

    [CP] News & Gameplay Discussion (Old)

    Are you kidding me? What am I missing about Amane that makes him C-tier? By design, he's a character that punishes you for blocking, which should make him a strong offensive character by definition, right? So what if he doesn't have any meterless reversal options? Tao and Valk don't either, and they're both S-tier according to the list. His range seems good from pretty much anywhere on the screen (maybe his mid-screen is lacking comparatively?), and his combo damage doesn't seem too bad considering how much they've been scaled since the new game. Seriously, what am I not noticing?
  21. You'd think Youtube would have found a nice alternative in handling reported copyrights by now. Or that companies would recognize free publicity when they see it. Or that either of them would not be complete and utter dicks in the dealing with it department. /rant #imad Have you looked into any possible ways to appeal the termination? It'd be a shame for all those videos to poof into dust if they don't have to.

  22. Ohey. Small world. GG's tonight, and excellent Lambda. It was good to get some practice in before the inevitable storm that will be CP Nu, haha.

    In trying to edit the URL to see if I could find any hidden pages, I noticed something potentially interesting. Trying to put Izayoi in after the "chara_" part of the URL leads to a blank page- NOT the "The requested URL could not be found" message you get when trying other things: http://blazblue.jp/cp/chara_izayoi.html . So if the URL for a last character is already taken, we should (hypothetically) be able to find out who/what it is by plugging things in and searching for that other blank page. I've already tried jubei, kokonoe, nine, 9, and every butchered form of celica I could think of.

    Has anyone tried searching for any icons relating to Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi, Tsubaki's old weapon/outfit, the Spectacles of Eros, Phase Shift characters, or sexy pantsu? Just throwing some ideas out there.
