    [CF] Video Posting Thread

    This thread is for posting Central Fiction videos only. Any and all discussion should take place in the Video Discussion Thread. BBCP video links can be found here: Link Guidelines: To avoid unnecessary clutter, if someone posts 1 part of an event (e.g Tachikawa Random 3on3 Part 1), assume that they'll edit their post with the rest of the parts. This means don't quote and continue to add onto it because they will get to it especially if they are a regular uploader! When posting new videos, always put the source link to the video in your post. Netplay matches (when console releases) will go into it's own thread in the BBCF Online Play section, not here. Basically the same rules as Jourdal's previous Video threads
  2. Some complained that Ragna 'suddenly become strong' in CF as he kicks everyone's ass there but for fans he was mostly known as 'underdog' before CF. Is it just because of him being talked down a lot despite his feared reputation or his 'many losses'? This is his battle breakdown, story mode canon ones: NOTE: 'Base' Ragna = Ragna without active Grimoire (usual non Unlimited Ragna, not the crippled one) Before CP True Ending (more details on Quote below) TLDR/Conclusion for pre-CP True Ending: All of his struggles are against an enemy that has equally or even more fearsome reputation such as (mentioning from CT to CP ones): Rachel (Daughter of famed Clavis and dubbed the Onlooker of the world) Hakumen (Leader of legendary Six Heroes who slayed Black Beast) Hazama (Which houses Terumi) Kagura (Head of Mutsuki, most powerful Duodecim in NOL, also ranked General) Azrael (Have many, nicknames that each one sounds as dangerous as "Grim Reaper") etc. Then, most of his struggles/loses are also when Ragna is handicapped And in conclusion for Ragna, base Ragna is actually stronger than you think. The only ones matching him/stronger back in CT was Rachel, 20% Hakumen (Ragna's stronger with Grimoire active), and Nu. And since CP he's not below 20+% Hakumen, contrary to popular belief. He's already matching him without active Grimoire and the other losses of his was only because Celica crippling him. Post-CP True Ending and CF (more details on Quote below) TLDR/Conclusion for post-CP True Ending and CF: CF Ragna isn't Ragna suddenly becoming powerful for no reason. Ragna is just being the same Ragna in CP True Ending before (In which Ragna improved himself with skill). Also, Ragna isn't winning because of Doomsday effect, because Ragna is already stronger than most Qualifieds (such as Litchi, Makoto, Bullet, etc.) since even first game and Ragna without active Grimoire have become on par with the Qualified powerhouses like Kagura or 20+% Hakumen since CP True Ending.

  4. Hello Dustloop! Well, it is about time to start a new and fresh thread to begin things anew, so I've decided to create this new thread to keep things easier and organized for everyone. Help yourself by looking at the updates below and links for downloading the tabs. You are in for a treat, because I just corrected all tracks of Gluttony Fang, plus, added the rest of the keyboards and drums, for the very first time. You deserve it for being so kind and patient. The tuning for guitars and 4-string bass is D standard tuning (1 step down). 'Till Next Time! -- Update History -- 2016-03-02: Thread update! The Man added! 2015-05-09: Thread update!

    STL ArchSys Gaming

    Welcome to the Dustloop STL anime thread. Gateway to the Dust. We exist! We play pretty regularly; I'd say 1-2 times a week. Currently Rev2 is the most popular game but there's at least a few people in all the Aksys titles and Koihime Enbu. Tasty Steve, AKA, Mr. K, and others all have been part of the STL anime community. St. Louis has lots of people with years of experience and passion for the game. If you're capable of basic friendly social interaction and want to play games with us, we're happy to have you. I've got this thread set up to notify me of replies, but honestly Twitter is the best way to reach me. We aren't active on Dustloop much anymore. Twitter and Facebook are currently the most active as of this post. Here's some useful links: STL scene's Twitter account: https://twitter.com/stlfgc This account is mostly for events and player promotions. A few people have access to it and we're still fine-tuning exactly how this will work but I think it's definitely worth a follow. My Twitter: https://twitter.com/STLMrK I tweet puns and Rev2 stuff a lot. If you have any questions about the game or events I'm usually good about responding because my phone has physically fused to my thumbs at this point. Our FaceBook group: tinyurl.com/stlgg The Facebook group is closed in order to prevent Facebook spam, but it's mildly active! We also have a FaceBook messenger chat that's pretty popping if you want your phone beeping 17 times at 3 AM.

  9. General Overview: Many people look at Litchi and instantly ask themselves and others, "How do I use this character" straight from the get-go. To be honest, she does look crazy to use but as a general overview. She is not that bad but does require a lot of practice (like all characters) and you must understand how to use both her and her staff in harmony in order to truly use her as a character. She is overall, a very versatile character who can transition very well between applying heavy pressure, being a zoner and playing keep away because of the nature of her move-set. On top of this she has great Okizeme and can convert many of her hits in to long corner carry and side switching combos ending with the staff sitting beside the knocked down opponents. In addition to how versatile she can be, you will also find yourself ad-libbing and improvising quite often because of the nature of move-set. Her style of fighting includes a staff that can be thrown for being both offensive or defensive, leading to the opponent possibly getting hit at times you wouldn't expect. So this means you have to be aware of the options and routes you can use when the staff opens the opponent up at unpredictable times. With a good reaction and a nice hit confirm, you can convert an odd hit in to a full combo + a hard knockdown hence the reason why you must on your toes and be ready to perform ad-lib combos. Screen Positioning Explanation: Midscreen: These combos may vary, and not all of them will end in the corner. However, these are combos that can be done around the fullscreen-ish/midscreen-ish area without the need of the corner. Midscreen to Corner: These combos start around the midscreen-ish area and require the corner for full completion. Combos found in this sub-section will mostly end in human strings and are solid for regenerating wolf meter. Near Fullscreen: These combo's start around the 1/3rd-ish stage mark and will mostly end in the opposite corner. Combos found in this sub-section will mostly start from strong starters and have very good corner carry. Back to Corner: These combos start with your back being extremely close towards the corner. Combos found in this sub-section will mainly focus around bringing your opponent back into the corner behind you. Corner: These combos mostly start with your opponent being directly in the corner, but it is important to note that some work relatively close/near to the corner and have slight corner carry. Combos found in this sub-section have many different purposes, and Valkenhayn's most damaging combos can be found here.

All other combos are still viable but are used for different situations but you still need "6C[2] > 3D" to maximize damage. NOTE: HP % is important as it allows you to roughly know how much time you have if you OD during a combo, 100% HP od will be short while having under 20% hp will make your OD last longer. That being said, Neutral OD activation adds on a bit more time compared to Canceling in to OD from a normal. Litchi doesn't really benefit from OD'ing in neutral without confirming a hit or getting the opponent to block and eat OD pressure mix up. So most of your OD usage will be fore combos / confirms / extensions and defensive situations. -----Midscreen---------------------- 5B[M]: [100% HP] 5B > 6D > ODC > 236A > 236B > 236C > 3D > 6C[2] > 3D > 6A[e] > 623D 6C[m] [70% HP] 6C[m] > 2D > 6B > 2C > 6C[2] > J.D > 6C[1] > 236C > 5B[m] > 6B > ODC > All Green > Dash forward > 632146C [5.7K DMG] ----Back to Corner------------------ ----Facing the Corner--------------- Combo / Tech Videos BBCF Litchi Faye Ling Combos By Geroshabu [Part 1] BBCF Litchi Faye Ling Combos By Geroshabu [Part 2] BBCF LITCHI COMBO VIDEO HD : KEY PLUS WORLD By Auredo BBCF LITCHI CMV BY MOLOKHIA BBCF: Litchi Combo (w/ active flow too) By EeveeFly BBCF - Litchi Option Selecting Nine's Wakeup By Uri_Woz BBCF - Litchi: FC 6D Corner Combo by Uri_Woz Uri Woz's Litchi Tech Dump video section via his twitter

However you can find a full run down on Final Changes and discussion on the following thread: http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/12099-cf-rachel-alucard-final-changelist/ Contents: - Character Profile: - Gameplay Summary: - Move List: - Commonly asked Q&A: - Notable Links & Resources: Character Profile: Rachel=Alucard ( レイチェル゠アルカード ) Head of the infamous Alucard vampire family, Rachel has spent countless years watching as the world repeated the same 100 years over and over. However, the world has finally broken free of the bonds that held it for so long, and Rachel is determined to put an end to Terumi with her own hands. In the BlazBlue universe, Rachel is an extremely powerful individual, controlling wind and lightning. While she will rarely directly interfere with the events that surround Kagutsuchi, her primary goal is as an observer, and gently (or less so) nudges the pieces into their places. She has several servants under her command; Nago, a cat familiar, and Gii, a bat familiar, which serve as her weapons, furniture, and anger relief. Her butler, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, is also notable for being a werewolf, as well as one of the Six Heroes. Height: 4'7" Weight: 68 lbs Blood Type: Unknown Birthday: October 31 Birthplace: Transylvania Hobby: Tea Time Likes: Sweet Things Dislikes: Being bored, Bell peppers and Tomato Juice JP Voice Actress: Ueda Kana Gameplay Summary: Health: 11,000 HP Overdrive: Elfried - Speeds up Wind Recovery. - Damage increase on Baden Baden Lily and adds extra projectiles to Tempest Dahlia. Rachel is a very unique character who specializes in keeping her opponent at a distance with a variety of projectiles and traps that make it difficult for opponents to approach her safely. She is also extremely effective at keeping the opponent in the corner, and has very intimidating corner mix-up. Her Drive, Sylpheed, makes her one of the most mobile characters in the game. On the flip side, Rachel has very few ways to escape pressure, a very fat OTG hitbox, and most of her normals have fairly short range. She is definitely not a beginner level character and her play style may prove difficult to learn for people new to fighting games. However, her unique play style and charm cannot be found anywhere else in BlazBlue. With a little patience and perseverance, she can be one of the most exciting and fun characters to play. Move List: Slypheed: Any Direction + Rachel's Drive summons a gust of wind that pushes in the direction pressed. Wind is held in the Sylpheed Gauge above Rachel's heat bar. There are 4 Wind Stocks; using her Drive will consume 1 stock. Consumed wind will regenerate slowly while Rachel is on the ground. Wind (Slypheed) does a variety of things: Affects Rachel's movement greatly Affects Opponents movement greatly and to further effect with Lotus attached. Affects the movement of Tiny Lobelia trajectory, Ivy Blossom, Barrel Lotus and George the XIII. You can use Wind when Rachel is not being hit or blocking. Gerbera Lute: Rachel's Exceed Accel can only be used when you have earned Active Flow Status. Usually used as a combo ender it can add on around an extra xxxx damage or if it is blocked will push the opponent away from you. Special Moves: Tiny Lobelia: + / / (Can be used mid-air) Rachel launches a seed projectile, which will turn into a rod upon hitting the ground/opponent. The trajectory depends on the button pressed; A fires the lowest, B fires somewhat upwards, C fires even higher. In the air, this is reversed; A fires the highest, and C fires the lowest. A maximum of 3 rods can be placed at once on screen, with the oldest disappearing if more are placed and you can also use Slypheed (Wind) to change the trajectory of a Lobelia's you fire. Sword Iris: + (Can be used mid-air) The rods placed by Tiny Lobelia and/or any Lotus Bats attached to an opponent are struck by lightning, damaging the opponent and shocking them on hit. Extends to the entire height of the screen. Seeds that have hit the opponent but not turned into visual rods yet will also be struck. You can also TK (Tiger Knee) Sword Iris in the motion when on the ground: + which allows for faster recovery which you can follow up with a quick dash to continue a combo or pressure on the opponent. Ivy Blossom: + (Can be used mid-air) Ivy Blossom is where 10 small bats come out and will latch onto the opponent to drain away their Health, by using Slypheed (Wind) to move the bats around they spread into a fan or if used in oki, the opponent can wake up standing into all 10 of them. If 1 or 2 bats attaches during Slypheed (Wind) use it can do hardly anything, but if all 10 bats are attached they will do consistent poison like damage. Ivy has no hit box so summon carefully during mid combo and for oki. George the XIII: + (Can be used mid-air) Summons a frog in front of Rachel. George will slowly crawl towards the direction of the opponent, and can be pushed towards the enemy with Sylpheed (Wind). Upon contact, George will start shocking the opponent (6 hits total). George will disappear if Rachel is hit by an attack, if he takes 700+ damage (George HP). [NEED TO SEE ABOUT GAUGE INFO] George is one of Rachel's most important tools. An opponent blocking or getting hit by George is one ripe for mix-up/combos. On the defensive, if George is out on screen, Rachel can wind him towards her to escape block strings and punish overzealous opponents. He's also great to throw out after a knockdown, and contributes heavily to Rachel's corner game. Barrel Lotus: + (Can be used mid-air) Transforms Rachel's rods into bats that will track the opponent. If they touch the opponent (hit or block), all wind effects will be increased against the opponent. Useful for combos and controlling space. Any bats attached to the opponent can be struck with Sword Iris. Distortion Drives (DD) and Astral Heat (AH): (DD) Baden Baden Lily: + (Can be used mid-air) A bigger, badder, stronger version of Sword Iris. In addition to striking all Lobelia rods, lightning also surrounds Rachel, essentially turning herself into one. Corner combos in CF often involve setting up multiple rods before combo-ing the opponent into a Baden Baden Lily for large amounts of damage. The damage can be further increased with the effect of activating Overdrive. (DD) Tempest Dahlia: + (Can be used mid-air) When used, Rachel summons gigantic projectiles from behind her that gust towards the opponent at an angle. The number and type of projectiles thrown out depend on how many stocks of Wind there is in the Slypheed Gauge Rachel had when she used the move; there are a total of five levels. 0 Wind (lvl 1) = Less projectiles and 4 Wind (lvl 5) = More projectiles. Tempest Dahlia is used as a defensive DD. It is mainly used to stall for time or regain a lot of wind. It can be used to punish opponents who are recklessly jumping or air dashing in, but (due to heavy proration on the last projectile) Rachel cannot get much damage from it. The closer Rachel's back is to the corner, the faster the projectiles will appear on screen. Also, once a projectile appears on screen, it's active frames are guaranteed. All versions/levels are plus on block and Rachel is able to move while the super is still in progress. Thus, she can get in mix ups where both she and her opponent are obscured by King George or King Pumpkin. (AH) Clownish Calendula: + Rachel's Astral Heat. She pulls down her umbrella and summons a giant red pillar. Any contact the opponent makes with this pillar is game over for them. Guard point from the freeze until the end of the move. Wind can still be used during the animation to draw the opponent closer towards the pillar but the opponent can block the attack, however you can combo into this Astral Heat in many ways. Normals: A: - Rachel slaps the opponent with Nago's tail. Hits twice. Jump Cancel-able. 2A: - Rachel jabs with Nago's tail. 6A: - Rachel's cat uppercut. Has a short upper body guard point and a solid Anti-Air move. Air unblock-able. j.A: . - Mid-air cat paw. Very fast and sneaky overhead. B: - Rachel summons a small vortex of Wind in front of her. Air unblock-able. Jump Cancel-able. 2B: - Similar to above. Opponent must block low. 4B: - Rachel swings back and stabs her opponent with a bat wing from her dress. Opponent must block high. Air unblock-able. 6B: - Rachel stabs forward with a knife and fork made from her dress. Longest reaching normal, staggers on Counter Hit. On a normal hit it can be used for mix up. Air unblock-able. Jump Cancel-able. j.B: . - Rachel stabs with a part of her dress. Opponent must block high. Part of her Mix Up game. C: - Short Umbrella Sword stab. Fatal Counter Hit. Air Unblock-able. CC: - Follow up from (press again). Second hit opens up the Umbrella Sword and blows back the opponent a great distance. Used in Corner Combos and/or to hit the opponent into the corner. Wall-sticks near corner. Air Unblock-able. 2C: - Rachel's Cat Chair shocking Nago. Guard Point for about half a second. Very important to note, it can be very risky but can be very necessary at times as it can be used to escape pressure at times. Air Unblock-able. 3C: (can hold [] for an additional 3 hits) - Rachel spins on the ground that hits 3 times. Opponent must block low. Mostly used for Knock-down to set up George Oki, but can also be used in mix up to go into a BnB. You can manipulate movement and combos with Slypheed (Wind) 6C: - Rachel spins around in mid-air towards her opponent, hitting many times. Used with Slypheed (Wind) to push Rachel forward for more hits and Corner Carry. Can be cancelled into :j:.:cbt: or a low hitting :j:.:d::cbt: Keep in mind this is Rachel's only Plus normal (+4) j.C: :j:.:cbt: - Rachel's Umbrella Nago produces spikes. Opponent must block high. Decent Air to Air normal. If the button is held down it transitions into j.[C] as shown below. j.[C]: :j:.[:cbt:] - Rachel then sits upon a swing and floats slowly down on her Umbrella. Descends slowly and can move her around with Slypheed (Wind) in a variety of directions. j.2C: :j:.:d::cbt: Rachel crashes down to the ground with sitting on a spiked platform beneath her. There are Three Levels to this move. lvl 1: Standard Hit. lvl 2: Caused Ground Bounce on hit. lvl 3: Causes greater Ground Bounce and has the Fatal Counter property even on a normal hit. The j.2C levels are determined by Rachel's and the opponents momentum. You can increase this with 2D when coming down, with 8D when jumping upwards or even both. It allows you to chain into other Normals when landing so it can be used for a lot of things.

  14. With the announcement of Jubei, BlazBlue is also officially getting a new patch, which is dubbed Central Fiction 2.0. Much like with Guilty Gear Rev 2, Arc System Works has compiled all of the major changes with every character into a .pdf file located in this link. You might already be aware that this file is entirely in Japanese, so members of the BlazBlue community have banded together to translate these changes all throughout Twitter. The changes have been compiled into a single Google document, which can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sQpDd_HQRLYoVE5pLHDhvKcUzMjdbJtKajc-mV8J_1U/edit Special thanks to the following translators: @HiagoXYZ @RideTheIcening @superscience890 @kasouinshelter @gookie_monster @vlionmagnusv @vibratingsheep @orochifame96 @kikered @iw2ma @onizato_1 @greatfernman
