  1. Fingers crossed there's some good news for Elphelt players.
  2. New characters and a balance patch? Can't wait to be disappointed by Potemkins "buffs" for a 3rd time in a row. Seriously though, I just hope they don't go too hard on my girl Elphelt, I think the last couple patches have put her in a good place and I don't think she needs anymore nerfing. The 20th can't come soon enough.
  3. I'm actually more excited for the return of "awe of she", then dizzy herself tbh. Does that make me a bad person?
  4. Nah, this is already more than I anticipated tbh. I was expecting just 4 at launch so I'm more than satisfied with 6 overall. I'm just hoping we won't have to wait till June to see gameplay of Raven and Kum.
  5. I was thinking the same thing, a balance patch would level the field a little, but we'd still be learning a brand new match-up(Jack-O) and figuring out applications for the new blitz mechanic. I mean, it's not like US had much of a shot against Japan anyway, but it does kind suck. Oh well, I'd much rather have an all japan top 8 than have to watch Xrd while I'm playing Revelator.
  6. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to get a gameplay walkthrough, least give us an idea of how she works. I mean we got gameplay of Elphelt and Sin like 3 months before Xrd launched so it's within the realms of possibility.
  7. Sorry, I've been out of the loop(and can't find anything on google), there's a new patch coming? Like a full blown balance patch? Or just minor tweaks here and there? EDIT: Unless this is the patch you were referring to: http://iplaywinner.com/news/2015/11/16/guilty-gear-xrd-revelator-ver103-announced.html

    [Xrd] Elphelt Gameplay Discussion "The True Best Girl"

    Just for the record, there's a thread specifically for critique, it's this badboy right here: http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/9867-xrd-elphelt-critique-thread-waifubros-training-center/ Now keep in mind I'm still relatively new to the character, so some of the stuff I say might be incorrect, but with that said, here're some tips. 1. Right out the gate ill tell you this, Bridal express isn't safe on block, so you should throw it out a lot less. Cancel f.S into 2.HS, or grenade, or IAD. There's really no reason to ever cancel it directly into BE. 2. You should use grenade and shotgun more, they're really strong tools 3. OS your throws(I'm going to assume that's why you did so many raw HSs), input your throw as 6.S+HS, that way if the throw doesn't hit the c.S will come out, which is substantially safer. 3. Use 5.K more, you barely throw out any lows, the overhead is never going to hit if you don't give them a reason to block low. 4. Cancel your 6.HS's, it gives you a lot of frame advantage on block, but only if you cancel it either into shotgun or grenade. 5. Practice instant air dashing, it's a very useful tool with her. 6. Watch some gameplay of other elphelts, check out the video I just added to the video thread, it's about 30 minutes of really solid elph play. Hope these tips help. EDIT: Lol, forgot to ask the question I came to ask. In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LCF8gYSY48&t=6m39s LS does an IAD grenade toss, and he hits Marlin with the toss, I can't seem to get the toss to hit, it usually goes over the characters head. I can't tell if it's height, spacing, or timing dependent and was hoping to get some help.

    [Xrd 1.10] Elphelt Video Thread

    Just heard of this lost souls guy, but he's got a very slick looking elphelt. Bunch of footage of him on spookys channels but here's a set between him and Zidane Couple things I've noticed from him: 1. He rarely ever uses her command grab, when he's in shotgun he mainly goes for frametraps and just chip damage 2. His main mix-up seems to be IAD j.S tbh, he uses it more than most elphelts I watch 3. He has some of the best grenade awareness I've seen, seriously this dude really knows how to use them nades.
  11. I'd message them and let them know, I'm sure they'd appreciate the help.

    [Xrd] Potemkin Video Thread

    Considering the match-up isn't even a month old I'd honestly focus less on whether or not it's good for pot, and more on the actual mechanics of the match-up. Side note, really nice set between dot_nova and some eddie player:
