  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!

  10. Hi! So, I'm a painter and for the longest time, I've been told I have talent, but I've never felt good enough know, actually sell stuff. '-' *ahem* Well, this year, I really started working harder on my art, and thought I'd try to sell at CEOtaku's artist alley, since I love a good Fighting game Tourney as much as art! I just started putting together some stuff I'd want to sell, and doing the math on production costs, etc, but I'm a novice as far as all of this is concerned, and there's barely any external coverage on "fighting game artist alleys" that I can find... I've talked with a certain plushie maker online about her experience, but that was some time ago, and she's a vendor, so she only sees one side of things. I'm just curious - has anyone here been to CEOtaku in the past, or events like it, with artists selling there? How was it? How many vendors were there, and how much did they have with them? Anything/one catch your eye while you were looking around? I never got the chance to go there personally, and like I said, it'd be my first try at one of these, so I'd love to hear about your experience there, or elsewhere! Thanks for reading!

  17. In case of more additions. Overview: (Reposted from Combo Thread) Acknowledgements Move-list translations courteous of Tokkan Detailed descriptions thanks to Davo87 [Davo87 text in this font color] (various links to footage from his descriptions in Thanks to -Seo for info on what moves can be jump cancelled, confirmations on lows and overheads, and general hands on impressions. Thanks to Kiba for letting me know how I could add sexy boxes. Thanks to Suzaku for the inspiration for the Arcade Movelist Sheet Thanks to Myoro for the thoughts on ribcage and barrier management (expressed it better than I could) Thanks to bakahyl for changes to the ribcage section and the Bang guardpoint comparison Arcade Movelist Sheet Izanami CV: Yukana Nogami To all living things, Hades Izanami descended to bring death unto all equally. She is the younger sister of Ragna and Jin, while also the template for dimensional boundary interface units for the No.10 series and a "vessel". At one time she was known as the "Imperator" of the NOL, seeking to bring about Doomsday. Now, that goal is about to be fulfilled. A cold, heartless, ruthless girl. She believes the role of Hades Izanami is to view all of life as pointless as worms about to be snatched off the ground and to return all the world to nothing. However, she sometimes refers to Ragna as "Nii-sama", but it is unknown whether if she says that as only a taunt or to truly reflect the "vessel" Saya's feelings She wields the Yasakani no Magatama in battle. Profile: Height: Unknown Body Weight: Unknown Blood type: Unknown Birthday: Unknown Hobbies:Jigsaw puzzles Likes: The world Dislikes: Ragna the Bloodedge Drive Name: Exodus Arc Specials Float ------------ + -> Float Cancel - F.

In Magatama mode she loses the followup C attacks and the ability to block but in their place gains 4D, 2D and 6D as projectile attacks. 5D switches between modes. Exceed Accel is called "Nayuta <Arc Drive>". Overview : A very offensive orientated character that struggles in neutral but has high damage potential. Relies on Exceed Accel or DD on defense, with little else to counteract the opponent's momentum. Her projectiles are used more to give her a chance to open up the opponent rather than to zone, but she can also use the slide version of her teleport to get in on opponents. A unique technique allows her to use barrier meter for temporary defense, but is more an offensive tool against Abare rather than a true defensive option due to start up and a window of only 4 seconds. Izanami also has many moves with lots of recovery, so she needs to be cautious on offense. In summation, she has a multitude of offensive options, but lacks meterless defensive options. Modes: Normal/"Ring" Mode (non-projectile mode,N-mode) -In normal mode her C attacks have followups when pressing C again. eg 6CC, 5CC Active/Magatama/"Deployed" Mode (projectile mode, P-mode) -In Magatama mode she loses the followup C attacks and the ability to block but in their place gains 4D, 2D and 6D as projectile attacks. 5D switches between modes. 5D/ j.5D: Toggles Normal and Active mode. 2D Fires spread outwards. 4D/ j.4D Fires magatama straight forward. 1 top 2 below. Frametrap. 6D Fires cluster at 20 degrees upwards. j.1D Fires spread of magatama covering 45 degrees downwards. j.6D Overdrive: Lets Izanami use both modes simultaneously.

Izanami gains no meter during this period. Can be extended with another 214214C. Note: Overdrive count down stops but you still gain active flow.

Costs 100 meter. Lasts <10 seconds. Note: Overdrive count down stops but you still gain active flow. Meaning you can do a longer combo to activate active flow regardless of the span of your Overdrive gauge. -~2-4 seconds of startup -~7 seconds of beating on the opponent (can't gatling attacks though?) -Za Warudo (read: timestop super with shit tons of startup) -OD timer does not move during timestop Astral: 720D Move Proration and Base Damage Gimmicks: A coy use of Izanami's float is to use it to pan the camera up and then use 41236D to force the opponent to block or jump (the move has a about 1-2 seconds after activation to actually fire). The Izanami can then use 214B to teleport to the opponent on the ground if they didn't jump or float cancel (8 in float) to then attack. Another tactic involves using 63214D (with some charge to increase duration) on float above the ground to create a hurtbox above the opponent and then to move in to use her command grabs. Very telegraphed, but forces the opponent to tech since jumping leads to damage via the projectile hurtbox above. A safe cross up involves using 63214D to attack on the ground and then jumping behind the blocking opponent. Another tactic involves using the hurtbox of 41236D to move in on the opponent as some air normals and anti airs can't punish the dash in without getting hit on their start up frames. When Izanami has a health lead against a non-zoning character, she can consider halting an opponents with 41236D done on the ground to either force the opponent to block and risk chip damage, go into the air and compete with Izanami's float normals, or stand back away from the hurtbox. Useful for recharging barrier for ribcage armor combo setups. You can use JD to mess with your momentum in the air to punish the opponent or to avoid damage. Float can be used to a similar effect. Similar to UNIEL Nanase tech. D-Move Buffering: Izanami has a powerful buffering technique involving 63214D, 41236D, and all Active Mode D-attacks. Normally, this move is easily blocked in neutral, however, Izanami can buffer 63214D during the startup of moves like her CT to extend the length of her strings. What this allows you to do is to create time to go for other options you normally couldn't do relying on your normals alone. You want to deploy the move early, since her "bits" circle the opponent for a little while, but go for the combo on or slightly before hit. In Active/Projectile/Bit/Ring Mode, Izanami can buffer with any of her projectile attacks. We'll use comma notation to show you want to input the projectile attack relatively close to the attack you want to buffer and to distinguish from the fact the move does not flow to it. Rather, the projectile and the buffered attack occur simultaneously. Izanami exchanges the right to block for this technique, so be careful and knowledgeable about the times required for the bits to have an active hitbox. Buffering Examples: You'll want to buffer to make your moves safer and open up new combo opportunities by lengthening the combo timer. 63214D is notable because it can be buffered outside of Active mode unlike the rest. The price for that is that it has about a second of delay as the bits circle the opponent making it extremely telegraphed. 6A,6D->... 6A,4D->... 6A,1D->... 6A.2D->... 41236D hits later than when you input it so not a good ender but extender Throw,41236D->... 6B,41236D->... CT,41236D->... 3C,41236D->.... 3C,6D->... 3C,4D->... 3C,1D->... 3C.2D->... 214B,6D->... 214B,4D->... 214B,1D->... 214B.2D->... Knockdown Pressure: Use 623B,63214D (buffer 63214D during 623B's activation) on knockdown in the corner to put yourself at an advantage after a successful combo. The opponent will be forced to either block on wake up or delay their wake up if they can't safely roll behind Izanami out of the corner. A good option is to go for 214C if they block to restore some barrier and deplete their barrier gauge. Ribcage Impressions Float Mixup: One tactic Izanami can use her float mode for is to float at just the right height to end float mode and go for one of two options: Overhead jump normal Landing low Inputting the attack right before she lands enables the 50/50 mixup. Similar to Swallow Moon tech. Float "Soft" Loop: Float looping/resetting involves float cancelling (8 during float mode) to extend combo potential similar to how jump cancelling allows you to extend a string by taking to the air. Example ...(float mode)->float 5C->float 2C->8 in float mode (float cancel)->ground 5C->(jump into float cancel)88->float 5C->float 2C->float 236A->float 5C->float 2C->float 6C->8(float cancel)->...(ground enders etc) The idea is to install float after a launcher, do a float string (usually float 5C->float 2C) then to uninstall float mode with a float cancel (8 in float mode) to do a minor reset to extend the combo. The timing and moves vary based on what point in the combo you are in, and where you focusing your string at (you can go for float cancels for float->ground mentality to focus strings on the ground or jump cancels for a ground->float mentality to focus on strings while floating). Combo Theory: Misc (50% meter)...,41236D->(on 41236D hit) 236236B (During OD)...214A->ABCD(EA) [go to in active flow with OD meter stocked] ...->5B->5C->2C->6C->...

  18. Note: This is also the new Q&A thread, if you wish to view our boards previous game versions Q&A thread you can find it here: Link Discuss and ask Questions about the latest version of Rachel here: I thought it was time to add this now as the US also has BBCF on arcade machines this time around. With this version Rachel has has had some rather big changes and how we tackle playing her will also a change a bit, so don't hesitate to ask questions to the answers you seek. You can also find general Rachel information further below. Notable Changes: - Pumpkin has been removed and replaced by the poisoning Ivy (214B) - Lotus will be our new Pseudo Pumpkin (22A Lotus was removed and we keep 22B) - Wind Regeneration has slightly improved compared to CPEX (It also recovers slowly in the air) - George Shock Time is less but has no cool down. - Tempest Dahlia falls in at an angle and greatly recovers wind. Any info you believe is wrong or should be added. Just let me know and I'll sort it out. However you can find a full run down on Final Changes and discussion on the following thread: 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. Exceed Accel: 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 . or a low hitting . Keep in mind this is Rachel's only Plus normal (+4) j.C: . - 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]: .[] - 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: . 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.

  20. Use this thread for discussing BBCF Hakumen gameplay, videos, combos, new tech, general analysis, setting up games with other Hakumen players, your tournament performances, swapping tips, etc.
  21. So i have been playing BB for a while now and i can confidently say that im a decent player but, there was always one one matchup with ANY character that id 9/10 always en up loosing. Iron Tager. now i know ove seen the old forums saying stuff like "hes a walking giant hitbox" but that giant sack of scraps somehow has the invincibility frames to go through anything i throw at him. add the magnetism and you have the perfect 100% guaranteed your fucked command grab. anyways if you guys could help that would be super. thanks
  22. I'm relatively new to Blaz Blue and I purchased BBCF yesterday, but not at all new to playing competitively with fighting games (basically I compete at majors for other games). I've found that this is pretty much the only forum that supports Blaz Blue, but there is a lot of information missing that would make learning to find the way to play this game at a high level incredibly difficult. The only consistent information I find is combos and move by move frame data, but there is so much more information to a fighting game that isn't easy to find here. A lot of the character forums are wastelands where barely anyone says anything, and the few info posts are mostly placeholders. I can't find anything on match ups, basic string defense, or even punishment for my character and the game has been out for almost a month. Am I just not looking in the right places for this information? I've even looked at the wiki and its basically just the same info in the forums just in a different package (at least for the character I am interested in playing). I am a member to other fighting game forums and would love to contribute to these forums, but as a beginner there is an overwhelming amount of information I don't have that I need to even try to play this game. Edit: To provide even more information, the character I have chosen to play is Naoto. In the forums all I can find are his combos. Other than that, his forum is empty as far as info goes. His wiki is even worse where there is pretty much no info for him other than his overview page which is overly basic stuff such as all of his movelist with very few pieces of info about each move. I get that he is not considered to be one of the better characters in the game, but I didn't think that this little information was available for him. Why is it there are tier lists I can find on here, but the information available for characters is so bare, there shouldn't even be enough to form a tier list?
  23. 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.
