"Street Fighter V: 2017"


  

          

Capcom Cup 2016 ends tonight, Akuma's been announced, and the other thread got damn near 700 posts. Let's start fresh.

Akuma full reveal trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y7TRMISkGE

Akuma gameplay details:
http://www.capcom-unity.com/harrisony/blog/2016/12/03/akuma-the-master-of-the-fist-is-coming-to-street-fighter-v

Akuma's V-Skill is a parry that can be followed up with two different strikes (one looks like a launcher).

V-Trigger gives him "Shin Akuma" buffs to his fireballs (full screen, double air fireballs, and the ability to throw them while jumping back) and a follow up for his dragon punch.

Critical Art is reminiscent of his 3rd Strike palm super. He gets access to Raging Demon in V-Trigger.

The "2017 Character Pass" includes Akuma and "5 brand new fighters" (they've been emphasizing the "brand new" too. We might not get returning characters this year, which I'm down with).

Release date is December 20th. $30 for the full pass. The pass comes with premium costumes for the new characters (colors included) and a new theme for PS4 (not that anybody cares). Akuma is also getting a Nostalgia costume. It looks like regla ass Akuma.

The Holiday, Rocksteady Ryu, and Chunnie from the Block also drop on the 20th.

-30-
You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

Dec 03rd 2016
10
all anti-air lights still in game
Dec 03rd 2016
9
ugh.
Dec 03rd 2016
11
      edit: they actually made it startup a frame slower
Dec 03rd 2016
12
           so lights that anti-air are now at least 4 frames?
Dec 03rd 2016
13
                actually I'm seeing two different things. Champ saying Chun's
Dec 03rd 2016
14
hold up. Kazunoko and UltraDavid saying ALL DPs lost invincibility
Dec 03rd 2016
16
daaamn. I'm reading throws lose advantage mid-screen too.
Dec 03rd 2016
17
oh hell naw! that's the point of DPs tho!
Dec 04th 2016
39
This must be a work in progress because Boxer got a move removed:
Dec 03rd 2016

Actually, PR Rog says it's a DP motion now.
Dec 03rd 2016
20
Ken got sniped

Dec 04th 2016

RE: I got trolled by some fake Laura buffs
Dec 07th 2016
41
      You truly have to mix it up with Laura, tho.
Dec 07th 2016
42
           I'm probably gonna drop Rog and play Laura exclusively
Dec 08th 2016
46
                Your Laura was beast last time I saw it. Funny enough
Dec 08th 2016
51
Holy shit I suck at this game....
Dec 07th 2016
43
What do you feel is more difficult for you in SFV than it was in SF4?
Dec 07th 2016
44
Most definitely defense....
Dec 08th 2016
55
I play most weeknights and Sundays.

Dec 08th 2016
48
I believe that same update
Dec 08th 2016

      Arcade mode is not in the game yet. Vs CPU was added in September
Dec 08th 2016
50
           that sucks.. i bought the deluxe edition when it was 29.99....
Dec 08th 2016

Why SFV got the best Christmas song since OutKast's Player's Ball tho?
Dec 16th 2016
56
I heard we can finally pick stage music for online
Dec 17th 2016
57
      That's a good look. I wanna mix it up with the stage and opponent themes

if this tweet stays true, it is NOT the time to get off the Laura train
Dec 17th 2016
61
      they're all saying Mika mains are switching to Laura
Dec 18th 2016
62
           Laura's resets still require meter, so she'll never be Mika crazy
Dec 18th 2016
63
PATCH NOTES!!
Dec 19th 2016
64
Laura got hella damage and hurtbox nerfs, but hella frame advantage
Dec 20th 2016
65
The more I study these notes the funnier they get.
Dec 20th 2016
68
Nash is dead.
Dec 20th 2016
66
      Weird nerfs aside from his dashes.
Dec 20th 2016

Dec 22nd 2016
71
      feels good, man. i think i'm the only one who likes Lion King Akuma
Dec 22nd 2016
72
      and man, if you land Ken's overhead in the corner
Dec 22nd 2016
73
           yeah his RH overhead is stupid
Dec 22nd 2016
74
                it seems like this is a common retooling:
Dec 22nd 2016
75
the fuck? Capcom nerfed FANG
Dec 22nd 2016
76
his normals got slower, but they all got more advantage on hit/block
Dec 22nd 2016
77
      man. I've lost about 1000 points because I can't anti-air DP
Dec 22nd 2016
78
           is it getting stuffed during the startup?
Dec 22nd 2016
79
                maybe a few. but losing those first three frames
Dec 22nd 2016

Daigo is using Guile in Season 2
Dec 28th 2016
81
Guile might be a better fit for Daigo's classical fireball and DP game.
Dec 28th 2016
82
Are you using Guile full time yet?
Dec 29th 2016
83
yeah pretty much, got Super Plat a couple nights ago with him
Dec 29th 2016
84
How many top level SFV players use him?
Dec 30th 2016
88
      Daigo has used Guile since SF2
Dec 30th 2016
89
      Dieminion too.
Dec 30th 2016
90
      neither does he.

Dec 31st 2016

Dec 29th 2016
85
Rocksteady Ryu, Chunnifer Lopez, and Shid Montana are all GOAT alts
Dec 29th 2016
87

      Ultimately, I was wrong
Jan 27th 2017
105
           he released a video today about his thoughts on the game:
Jan 27th 2017
107
                Even when he's completely pissed off, he's polite.
Jan 28th 2017
109
                     I agree with a lot of it.
Jan 28th 2017
110
Very weird buffs and nerfs, plus the SRK nerf...
Jan 25th 2017
97
      the intent of the changes is baffling.
Jan 26th 2017
99
           Ken's neutral def needs buffs
Jan 26th 2017
100
                They are sorta doing that already, although not to such an extent.
Jan 27th 2017
103
                     Capcom's notes from yesterday reveal Ken's jab DP is throw invincible
Jan 27th 2017

Balance adjustments might be coming this season:
Jan 27th 2017
101
Pardon my extreme ignorance
Jan 27th 2017

      you're exactly right, Capcom usually doesn't do this

Abigail trailer.
Jul 17th 2017
252
He look goofy, but he's far from the only goofy looking character in SFV
Jul 17th 2017
253
concept is fine; I'm less considered about a goofy player model

nice job on Abigail.

might've underplayed Guile because I don't want to
Aug 14th 2017

my take
Aug 14th 2017

Abigail might do some tournament damage in 2/3 format

296
I like the idea of new VTs rather than new supers.
Oct 05th 2017
297
I agree, plus VTs are way more useful than supers in this game
Oct 05th 2017

the way it should have been. glad it's free

Oct 16th 2017
309
Dope character. Very very dope theme.
Oct 16th 2017
308
We can be certain that Strider involves Zeku somehow.
Oct 16th 2017
310
You seem quite hyped.
Oct 18th 2017
312
No command grab. Old Zeku is a zoner. His kick specials are projectiles
Oct 18th 2017
313
His Strider looking costume is sick.
Oct 18th 2017
314
I don’t think he’ll be complicated like Menat or even Karin

This may be the player that gets me back into the game

1. "S2 wishlist"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

- Sim should have 1000 health. Karin and Cammy have all the tools in the game for their low stamina, but Sim bleeds too much and lacks the comeback potential to only have 900 health.

- they gotta buff Gief somehow. maybe give him his beta SPD combos back or something. Mika can land one Irish whip and a reset to win the round, but Gief works harder to get in and can't even get a good mix-up after SPD.

- I don't mind the bullshit of the top tier; I'd rather lower tier characters get some bullshit to even it out than Capcom nerf everyone

- although I have a feeling they're going to nerf the hurtbox of Ken's disappearing air tatsu

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

Make everybody as dangerous as Chun, Mika, and Necalli.

I def wanna see Sim, Gief, and FANG get buffs. They don't get rewarded enough for making godlike plays.

I'm not going to hold my breath for Laura buffs. I just hope she doesn't get a damage nerf.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

1.) Green Hand (ex does knock down)
2.) SPD like SF4 (usable on wake up) and/or Lariat like SF4 (actually can anti air)
3.) Wall jump (like Chun or Vega)

Build a wall around fireballs, Capcom.

>hella useful.

I still be trying to play with her. And of course, she can give folks the BUSINESS if a person makes a couple mistakes, but that doesn't make her special. And I still don't truly have it 'down' yet as it relates to making people pay in diverse ways. I'm just not good at launching into a whole routine like most folks do on SFV. IE: when folks get a knock down, they have basically the same approach/follow-up with certain characters that they do every single time. Some folks call it a mix-up but if you do the same thing every time, I call it a routine. I blame Capcom more making that a viable way to get down with lots of the characters who actually get used.

I'm seeing less Ryus lately. COOL!

In response to Reply # 41
Wed Dec-07-16 08:07 PM by IkeMoses

  

          

You can't do a routine because every single one of her options can be blown up easily.

Sometimes you bait out the neutral jump, sometimes you bait out the reversal, sometimes you crush counter the wake up jab, sometimes you dash up and throw, sometimes you commit to your meaty because you know they ain't blocking, sometimes you actually go for the slow ass overhead.

She has a lot of options once she scores a knockdown, but you really have to use them all, because as soon as you're predictable you get punished hard.

Whoever compared SFV to learning a new language or learning how to box wasn't lying....there's a serious science to this.

I'm fighting with Ryu but I'm trying to get used to not relying on the hadoken like I once did. I used to throw them all round at will.

I can hold my own against balanced fighters (namely other Ryus) but people who can charge me like Cammy or Ken give me serious trouble. I'm not nearly as fluid with moves as I was in SFIV.

In response to Reply # 44


  

          

I always get hit with crazy combos online. Particularly against the agile characters. I get goaded into doing a lot of noobish stuff like jumping forward too much.

Also, I'm adjusting to the game's speed. This game feels slower to me than previous installments.

that had that idiotic story mode had arcade mode added into it as well. Either that or the update after it, but it is in there; I don't think it's the same arcade mode as the traditional Street Fighter games where you get an ending for each chosen character, but I could be wrong.

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

so you can fight the computer all day on whatever difficulty setting you like, but it's not a classical arcade mode with a final boss and a story. Not sure why anyone would need more story at this point since there are two story modes in this game, but whatever.

Rumors have it that arcade mode will be coming in season 2, but we haven't received official word on that yet. The first update for season 2 comes on the 20th when Akuma drops.

I'm going to try to dust off my Birdie. I've been rolling with Bonita (badly) for months now.

In response to Reply # 65


  

          

They've made Laura more Laura than ever. Her weakness (the neutral game) got worse and her strengths (her pressure and mix-ups) got stronger. On balance she's going to be a much better character, especially when the overall system changes are factored in. She's not Mika tho. With less meter gain now her mix-ups are more expensive this season, and she'll have to make a couple more reads because of the damage nerfs. But now she has legit combos and pressure strings, so she'll be scarier inside than ever.

To be fair, I haven't been playing ranked for like a month and was just chillin in casuals. Maybe I woulda got there a couple weeks ago if I wasn't being a buster.

Reaching gold rank was my Season 1 goal. I'm two days late, but mission comprete. Season 2's goal is plat.

Also reached level 50 with Laura tonight. I was worried I was gonna reach level 50 before I hit gold rank. That woulda been embarrassing. The struggle would've been written all over me.

Akuma is free so far. Season 2 Bison and Cammy are scary.

feels good, right? Platinum seems far away for me but I'll just keep playing and see how it goes.

I'm struggling right now as I re-learn how to be an obnoxious online Ken player. I'm not feeling Akuma's look or style at all, but overall excited for S2. a lot of what we think is good will be bad, and vice-versa (see: Sim and Bison early in S1).

the mane is beastly.

i just finished his trials and his specials feel so satisfying on hit. all his moves got these funky little pauses. i love that shit.

s.MK > v-skill launcher > demon flip is awkward tho. it's a core part of his gameplay so i'm sure i would get used to it eventually, but the timing feels weird.

especially with online delay. I'm used to using cr. mp though, which was nerfed, and abusing mk air tatsu (rightfully fixed).

I'll have to practice my light confirms now. LP+LK traps and strings seem like a big part of his game now.

Dieminion and Xian are giving up after they nerfed all his normals.

FANG in a capable players hands was one of the highlights of S1. NOBODY uses him online. I don't get it.

In response to Reply # 76


  

          

i don't know if that makes him net better or worse, but i hope we get some FANG specialists to stick with him and find out.

i know the plus frames have upped his combo potential.

i think a lot of people are struggling with how the game feels slower now, because everybody's normals have been made easier to punish.

Velociraptor just wrote about this on Eventhubs:
https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2016/dec/21/frustrated-street-fighter-5-season-2s-underwater-play-youre-not-alone-and-it-wont-feel-way-long/

i think we all need to let the game settle in for a few weeks before we know how the changes really shake out.

I saw snippets of ISDD's stream before I left for work today and I saw him angrily proclaim that Diago is maining Guile because of him. I have no clue how accurate that is, but seeing the two of them fight each other in a tournament should be entertaining.

I think dude recently quit streaming SFV; I've seen him playing Mario Maker more than SFV as of late. Perhaps he's grinding offline and I'm not aware, but it looks as if he put down the sticks himself.

because I saw him stream the game roughly two days after I made that post; sans his normal beard because of a bet he lost regarding Mario Maker. Hopefully dude is able to turn profits from his stream since he's appears to be a nice and affable guy and all. I do wonder how much it'll hurt him to give up on SFV in terms of his dollars.

Most of what he's saying about the game feature-wise is on point. None of it really affects my enjoyment of the game much, but Capcom doesn't have a good excuse for the game to be this unpolished almost a year after release.

As far as his complaints about Season 2's balance, I think it's waaaaay too early and people should chill a bit. But he's playing the game at a much much higher level than me, so what the fuck do I know?

97. "Very weird buffs and nerfs, plus the SRK nerf..."
In response to Reply # 93


  

          

Regarding the SRK nerf, the game was already very homogeneous and bland gameplay-wise, and now it's even moreso.

Guile didn't need the buffs at all, at least not all of them. They should have given him either the st.mp buff or the UDK buff, not both. The 2-bar V trigger is a wash, to me. And I say this as a Guile main. Oh, and an under-the-radar buff was giving CC ability to cr.hp and taking CC away from st.hp. Cr.hp was already a very good meaty button due to its high number of active frames (5, if I remember right) and ability to link cr.lp on CH (maybe even cr.mp, I forget), and the fact that it's safe (st.hp is -6, for comparison). But now it doesn't matter! Easy CC launch -> GHK into FK for massive damage, off of one button press. It's even more braindead than Ryu's meaties, believe it or not.

It makes me wonder if that was an intentional effect, or if they did it because st.hp being a CC button made no sense whatsoever other than being an easy mode CC combo starter.

exactly. how is removing YOLO DP catering to inexperienced players? now they just have to eat meaties, throw loops and ambiguous set-ups after every knockdown.

if you want to take away Ken's DP, ok. but then B.MP is nerfed? his jab is still 4F? he can't wake up with anything now. oh, but I should just learn to block, right? well Capcom made white life regenerate 2x slower, so playing defense is a fucking stupid idea as well.

Ken was already deadly in the corner and stubbish in neutral, so they made his neutral worse (slower RH, B.MP and C.MP that get CC'd all day, EX tatsu nerfed, air M. tatsu rightly nerfed) and improved his corner pressure with his overhead. that's ass-backwards.

in S1, most the cast had some bullshit so it felt even. instead of giving everyone BS or removing all of it, they gave a few characters even *more* BS, then nerfed everyone else.

Guile is stupid now. him, Urien and Balrog (both of whom still have unreactable, full-screen, safe, EX specials) have been buffed for that precious DLC money. of course nobody new to SFV is going to want to pay another $60 once they pick it up and deal with the worsening rollback, lack of anything to do but grind online, and head-scratching gameplay changes.

last two weeks I haven't had fun at all. which sucks.

but I can understand why they decided to make it ass since he still has explosive damage, they just made it too ass.

normalizing invincible reversals widened the field of killers in this game, and I like that overall, but I think they should have probably gone the 3S route and made each strength of DP have different types of invincibility and different uses.

Something like:
-light DP beats meaties, gets beaten air-to-air
-medium DP anti-airs, gets stuffed by meaty normals
-hard DP beats meaties and anti-airs but is vulnerable to throws
-EX is fully invincible

that way the mind games go both ways.

The invulnerable frames vary (some are like frames 6-10, for example, handier for AA if done early) as well as variations in upper body/lower body hitbox invulnerability. So most of them do have some invulnerable frames after startup, but only EX is invulnerable on startup.

but is it normal for Capcom to tweak Street Fighter like this? One one level, I'm impressed from a coding level since I imagine it takes a good amount of time to do all these tweaks, but one another level players have to get frustrated in terms of making adjustments when they've put time and energy into game planing just to see their character/characters get screwed around with.

106. "you're exactly right, Capcom usually doesn't do this"
In response to Reply # 102


  

          

Capcom is the most conservative company when it comes to balance chances. they typically release the game and let the players figure it out, and in my opinion that's the way it should be.

SFV didn't get a "balance" patch all of last year, just bug fixes. The meta of the game changed A LOT in those 10 or 11 months.

that said, since SFV's development is tied to the Capcom Pro Tour schedule, they have some wiggle room because the CPT hasn't started yet. they could make some last minute changes and leave it alone until 2018. the balance changes were radical and many players have been complaining about it, so they're looking at the results to see how legit the concerns are.

i personally hope just some of the characters who got hit hard get buffs. beyond that, i think Capcom should stick to their guns and let the game rock.

111. "Sometimes jabs don't work for me"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Like, occasionally in online matches when I try to jab nothing happens.

I thought it was the shitty Madcatz pad at first (which I admittedly slammed a few times in frustration), and when the same thing happened with my Hori pad I figured it was because I had also slammed that one on occasion.

When my replacement Madcatz pad had the same issue I just thought "oh well, guess they didn't fix anything", but last night I happened to play with my dualshock and the same thing happened so I'm thinking there may be a problem with the game or something? This was also on a new PS4 Pro with a new controller, so if either of those were a problem before they shouldn't have been an issue now.

Has anyone else experience anything like this? It seems to mostly happen with crouching jab. I don't know if it's a Gief specific bug or something and nobody plays Gief so it hasn't come up much or maybe it's a result of some sort of lag (at the same time other inputs work so I don't think it's that), but I'm mostly sure it's the game and not the equipment at this point.

113. "Japanese S2 tier rankings"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Sako:
1. Guile (SS)
2. Balrog
3. M. Bison
4. Laura
5. Rashid

Nemo:
1. Guile
2. Urien
3. M. Bison
4. Zangief
5. Necalli

Eita agrees about M. Bison. Daigo has also mentioned that Rashid is underrated and a secret top tier.

Sako always figures out the competitive top tiers quickly (he was hip to Elena when Ultra first dropped) and has been playing a lot of Akuma, so he must know he's average.

115. "Bison seems too easy to escape."
In response to Reply # 113


  

          

I have problems with him, but it's because I push buttons when I shouldn't be. Overall, it seems too easy to escape his pressure if you're willing to block and eat a throw here and there. But you do have to block, block, block, and then block, the discipline for which is hard to maintain.

In response to Reply # 115


  

          

(probably why Eita and all Ken players hate him)

I think he's harder to pin down now, since he has full-screen EX psycho blast and stored v-skill, plus 3F lk made his defense a little better. if you're online, the input lag and netcode delay both buff Bison's dash teleport mix-ups and the stupidity of devil's reverse.

I don't buy it. The neutral is different, with crush counters and stubby hitboxes on normals, but it's there. You can still whiff punish, counter poke, and space like any other game.

I will say whiff punishing is more anticipatory/read based than reaction based in 5, but you can still do it.

Also this has been around in almost every game vs. Sim. Here's an example in 4.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qlAaEQo0L0

You could always counter poke or whiff punish Sim's buttons like that. This doesn't prove there's a lack of neutral in 5.

In response to Reply # 119


  

          

which they all agreed was about the same as SFIV's, the only difference being IV was a more knockdown/vortex game and SFV is more of a scramble game.

Sounds about right to me.

In response to Reply # 120


  

          

you can whiff heavy normals thanks to the priority system and the fact most of them are safe (or even plus at point blank range!). get crushed for throwing out a poke and lose the round off the follow-up combo damage.

122. "I fucking love crush counters."
In response to Reply # 121


  

          

So much so that when I play or watch other games now, they feel like they're missing.

Even with KOF or KI, I almost expect to hear that glass shatter when I seen somebody whiff a DP.

It's so satisfying. And scary when you're on the other end of it.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but that walking-on-eggshells, one-mistake-and-you're-dead "randomness" that lots of people hate about this game is exactly why it's one of my favorites.

I get why people hate it. They want a more strategic game that can be broken down scientifically.

I want them mind games tho. I want call outs. I want disrespect. Crush counters encourage that shit.

In response to Reply # 121


  

          

I am fine with the idea of crush counters, but it seems like they should all be punishable, or at least minus, on block, so there is at least some aspect of risk-reward. Instead, some are safe/plus and some aren't, so it's another haves vs have-nots situation.

Sure, the neutral exists, but it's very depleted, imo. This game involves tons of guessing due to super fast moves that are unreactable at anything closer than full screen. And a lot of these moves are safe, which encourages the guessing game even more.

I understand the intent. Capcom wants you to have to take a risk to get big damage or create an advantageous situation. In IV, you only have to land one poke, cancel into fireball, and hit confirm into FADC for a huge combo, which is an extremely low-risk opener. So I can't say I have a solution to what I am complaining about, but the complaint is there nonetheless.

Cool Tyson pc mod....

http://www.infinitelooper.com/?v=l7vm-yNw-aU#/16;21

See the wind behind that uppercut? Is The Rogster developing a projectile?

What is the name of that stage song?

Why does Balrog voice wise on SF4 and SF5 sound like someone who grew up in a small town of mostly white folks and only 2 black families?

Why do folks try to play him almost like Dan sometimes in art? He's a
Shadaloo king man. Maybe I'm reachin or thinking about too much.

As much as Balrog is that dude to me...TJ Combo would be too fast for him.

It looks like she COULD be ill but who know the damage will go. My Gouken sf4 life interests me in any character with a counter/read reward mechanism. My game is read-reliant fo sho so I need reward when I get in someone's brain the right way. It's easier to do on sfv cuz there's only so much folks can do with some characters. And once you know the routines, it's kinda time to lock folks out and Mayweather them up.

I agree, she looks like she looks like she could be low-damage. Hopefully Capcom learned its lesson from Juri and gives Kolin some advantage for being able to maximize her complexity, if she has as many options as she appears to.

He's super fun. I am already getting a good hang of his combo conversions (very situational) after just a couple of hours. His movement speed is a little slower than Guile, so that's an adjustment, but he has a great poke (cr.hp) and you can play him pretty safely, despite outward appearances and common play styles.

You think Bison comes back after this (like coming back post SF3 story line) or was that his last stand. Nigga seemed pretty tame in that story and laffed off Ryu killin him.

What ever happens to Vega and Balrog? Sagat? after this sequence of events going into the SF3 side of things? Retire?

With all these new characters coming out will there be another cinematic story to come out? Will it continue where it left off? What you think or know will happen as far as that goes?

thanks. I think you're right, because even the spazoid scrubs hit their meaties consistently now. And rarely drop combos.

after Wolfkrone almost got Perfected On was perfect comedy.

My apologies for being a new jack, but why does Wolfkrone attract the seemingly negative vibes I'm getting from this video? The commentators and the folks in the background once the pop-off occurs seem to dislike dude off GP.

Has he been a troll in the past? I've seen ISDD accuse him of being a rage-quitter when he had the number 1 or 2 online ranking sometime ago.

like the type of guy that should never have Twitter. he complained when Capcom released Rashid's trailer on 9/11 because it "went too far" on such a "devastating day."

and yes, he is one of the most known rage-quitters in SFV. to which he replies with the typical RQ logic of "I didn't care about the points anyway" (so why did you rage quit to save them...?). him and K-Brad have been talking shit for the past few months -- he popped off when he beat K-Brad earlier this year -- and before Final Round Krone said he'd beat him again. also threw shots at Justin Wong and Co. (saying K-Brad's fat friends wouldn't be able to help him).

Back in SF4 days Justin knocked Krone to losers in a tourney and agreed to split the pot with him if he won. Krone wound up winning that tournament and kept the money. Honestly that's some real scumbag shit and this is what set everything off.

He got bodied in another tournament in the East Coast and tried to call blame his loss on Spooky not having headphones to drown out the noise. Spooky got in his ass for that

He tried to pop off on Ricky Ortiz, and failed (What are you standing up for?)

He rage quits in SF5.

There's clips of all this shit on youtube. He makes it worse because he acts like he's the victim in all of this shit.

Thank you for the breakdown there. I don't know what's the worst from that list you just gave; does Ricky Ortiz talk trash like that to justify Wolfkrone popping off? She seems like a very quite player from the little I've seen from her.

I wonder how much of the silly behavior is this dude playing the troll role for attention and/or possible sponsorships versus him just being a natural jerk.

153. "Meterless invincible DPs come back for fierce DP"
In response to Reply # 152


  

          

I think that's the right move.

Guile got a buff and a wash -- UDK is now +4 instead of +6 on hit, so you can't link cr.mp anymore, only jab. The wash is V trigger is back to 3 bars. I'm fine with that. I used V-reversal much more than VT. I think this is more in line with how Guile is meant to be, as well.

Also, the v-meter usage for sonic breaks is back to season 1 levels. This means that the corner infinite will remain as it is in its season 2 form, but you'll be able to do many more loops.

In response to Reply # 152
Wed Mar-15-17 11:38 PM by will_5198

  

          

- Urien is now negative on block when he spams MK and EX headbutt
- Guile back at three bars for V-trigger and less advantage on offense
- FANG back from shit-tier S2 status to low-tier S1 status
- Ken's overhead less dumb
- Laura LK blender removed

although this developer comment had me laughing:

"The addition of Cammy’s airthrow was made as we felt her move set was not quite complete. With the changes to her Canon Spike an addition of an airthrow, she should now feel a bit more robust."

dive kick, DP, half-screen special move that hits low, plus-normals with no pushback, braindead frame traps, safe target combos...yes, she was missing something!

158. "Haha, yeah. Also:"
In response to Reply # 157


  

          

"Developer Comments: Invincibility on Shoryuken attacks has been a polarizing topic. For players who learned how to use these attacks in Season 1 as an anti-air or counter attack, this change has severely affected their success with their favorite character. Conversely, those who have had to fight against these attacks, completely praise the changes as they felt meterless reversals were far too strong."

I have never heard anyone complain about meterless reversals in a technical sense. I've only heard complaints about them being mashable like in SF4, or complaints about the individual player doing them.

159. "they were valued in S1 because it was another option"
In response to Reply # 158


  

          

that most characters lacked, but I don't think there was any reason to nerf them. crush counters balanced DPs already -- if I DP on wake-up or during a gap between normals, I either:

- get out of jail free
- eat a 30-50 percent crush counter combo

in S2, what was the point of a DP? it doesn't cover any option. you still eat a counter-hit meaty. you still get command grabbed. you still get punished by all those 30-50 percent crush counter combos. you can't even AA without trading a third of the time. and at best? you get a knockdown.

Yeah, you're right. If a DP can't be both grab-invincible and strike-invincible, it can't cover enough options to be worth doing. If you're reading throw, you're much better off teching or neutral jumping. If you're reading strike, just block and late tech. There is now a technical aspect to scrubbing out.

Wolfkrone is a moron. Like, Wonder said above this should have been a victory lap but K-Brad basically won that whole debacle, lol.

Outside of whatever money the winners get (I'm only assuming there's money involved since the production value is pretty high), what else do the winners gain? Are there points involved?

The worst part is that K-Brad wasn't totally innocent in that post-match interview because he was taking shots at Wolfkrone as well, but Wolf Cola definitely looked worse after that match. It's a shame too because be played very well against K-Brad and even appeared to switch up how he normally plays.

He lacks that kind of showmanship that K-Brad and other cats have.

That said, he played his ass off. 6-1 against that field is pretty impressive and he easily out-played K-Brad.

The whole E-League thing has been fun to watch. I just wish I never read up on that British host dude being an alt-right Breitbart writer.

and I thought it was kinda funny with K-Brad's WWE style theatrics but at the the same time the constant talk of "thuggery" and the fact that was two young brothers made that shit kinda 🤔

But at the other same time, Wolfkrone seems a bit..."off", or at the very least like he wasn't in on whatever the joke was so I'm not really mad they had the security there.

>and British dude went full Breitbart on Twitter in response.

Yeah, he showed his true colors there. I made the comment on GAF that for as much as he likes calling out people being offended he is quite easily triggered himself.

>i haven't been watching much of it because of that dude's
>involvement, just uploads of the highlights on YouTube.

Yeah. It's been actually really well done. Like, the K-Krone situation was kinda awkward and Steve made a questionable comment during one of Gllty's matches, but for the most part it's been pretty classy for some FGC shit. And despite Lewis' bullshit views, he's decent on the mic especially for someone who knows fuck all about fight games.

>all that said, FGC beef is at its best when the two players
>are top level and foolish, and that's what we got. i love it.

Word. Krone looked sharp as hell in pretty much all his sets, too. K-Brad was alright but was dropping combos and couldn't confirm anything.

Lewis does seem to keep his bullshit in check when he's hosting, and he doesn't clash on camera with the rest of the crew (all of whom I fuck with).

It still sucks knowing my views are lending credibility to and putting money in an alt-right asshole's pockets tho.

I'd been enjoying his banter. ELeague has been dope, though -- some of the more interesting SFV play I've seen in awhile.

i could lie and say i was hit confirming the target combo, but i wasn't. i just had a feeling Cammy didn't wanna block when i saw her falling for the old cr.MK, lp. elbow.

182. "Do you guys ever check Tampa Bison's stream?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It's becoming one of my fav SF streams to watch. He's super smart, good stream interaction, does a good job of explaining what he's doing in-game, and talks about his thoughts on the game quite a bit.

183. "Speaking of serviceable streams, Brian_F is another good one."
In response to Reply # 182


  

          

I've seen Bison get a fair share of hate for his season two changes, so folks here may look down on him for that, but his stream itself is top notch. He's friendly and I've seen him answer questions folks as of him via the twitch chat app in regards to gameplay. He's one of the top players online, but I'm not to sure how well he plays in tournaments; I think he might be a bit green in that aspect, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, his is good, too. He openly talks about how OP Balrog is and the theory/data behind it.

And he is a good tournament player. He has a listing of his tournament finishes on his Twitch page.

And it's not just fast reactions.

They are legit outthinking and outspacing their opponents.

While everybody else is complaining about all the ways SFV ain't really Street Fighter, these kids are just playing Street Fighter.

Their mindgames are outclassing everyone else's right now. They are both scumbags and bullies and I love them for it.

top eight against LPN was straight disrespectful. but I can appreciate it.

him and Du's style are optimal for SFV. calculated oppression. like you said, it's odd for people to say SFV isn't "Street Fighter" when every title in the series has been different. IV was set-up, option select and execution-heavy. III was analytical and yomi. Alpha was all sorts of stuff.

I feel like he can beat either of them on any given day (like he did at Final Round).

I also feel like Fuudo has been shown to hold his own against Du but completely breaks down against Punk.

Fuudo's Mika was the only one I respected in season 1, and he's the only one really keeping her alive in season 2.

Xian was a threat with FANG last year, so he god. he's my favorite to upset Du at CapCup this year. (Evo's a toss up)

In response to Reply # 0

looks hype.

he has his Step Up 2 the Streets outfit for his story costume. we got served.

also, his trailer features some of the worst raps recorded in the history of recorded rap.

the CapcomUnity post:

http://www.capcom-unity.com/harrisony/blog/2017/05/08/the-young-commander-ed-joins-street-fighter-v

of note:

"What makes Ed especially unique is how players perform his special moves. His special moves have simple inputs; they only require simultaneous button presses, repeatedly pressing a button, or holding down a button. Only Ed’s Critical Art is done by inputting a traditional motion."

i can already hear the cries of "Casual Fighter V."

If that's the case, what are his weaknesses? Just going by what you posted, I'm guessing he's a glass cannon? Will he have less HP than Dhalsim? That would seem to be the most reasonable thing to me, but I don't have the deepest understanding of the game.

209. "the simplified moves shouldn't be a balance issue"
In response to Reply # 206


  

          

http://streetfighter.com/characters/ed/

one of his moves is done like Honda Hands, another is done like Balrog's Turn Around Punch. that's stuff we've seen before.

his two uppercut specials are button presses (PP or KK), and that's kinda new, but they also look like very punishable moves. the kick version looks crush counterable even. and no word if there are light, medium, and hard versions. so those moves don't seem OP, really.

In response to Reply # 214


  

          

And also, will top level players use Ed for Evo? I've seen ISDD train with Ed on his stream and if I'm not mistaken it's because he thinks Ed is a good match-up for Balrog, or at least is a much better one than his Guile is. I think I read that Justin Wong won a recent tournament using Ed, but I dunno if that level of competition was that of this years Evo.

224. "That Vega stage"
In response to Reply # 223


  

          

won't ever be used for serious competitions though, right?

More importantly, how serious are those Balrog changes mentioned in that link you posted? Are those serious enough nerfs to satiate all the belly aching folks have for that character in season two?


Also, somewhat silly question, but anything post May 30th is Season Three, correct?

>won't ever be used for serious competitions though, right?

Not sure. It might be banned for Vega players, but I don't see why it would be banned for anybody else. I actually think it nerfs Vega's wall dive because it gives the opponent a lot more time to react.

>More importantly, how serious are those Balrog changes
>mentioned in that link you posted? Are those serious enough
>nerfs to satiate all the belly aching folks have for that

Apparently all of those changes listed are changes that were implemented for Season 2 (back in December), but never officially listed. So nothing really changes for Balrog with this update.

>Also, somewhat silly question, but anything post May 30th is
>Season Three, correct?

Nah, it's still Season 2. This season still has 3 more DLC characters coming out. This update is merely a balance adjustment.

F-W0rd and Logan Sama is still my boys, but as the scene gets more esports I find myself enjoying to watch NLBC weeklies more than major tournaments, and it's because of the hype Yipes and Lee bring to it.

They're doing Combo Breaker this weekend and they're already spittin bars and it's only pools.

Yipes' reactions to Punk going up to NY and crushing the buildings two weeks in a row was perfect.

Looking forward to this coming Wednesday's buss ass now that E-League is over.

Evo is going to be epic if Snake Eyez/Gief can hang with Asia/top tier. Snake Eyez, Itabashi, even Stupendous are super fun to watch.

232. "Is anyone still playing?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I haven't played regularly since Tekken came out. I think I may quit playing this game seriously. Probably main Mika the rest of the way and call it a wrap. Guile is good, but I'm not good enough with him to make up for his low burst damage. I don't want to spend eleventy billion hours in training mode figuring out how to guard each character's shenanigans, which is a requirement to be a serious Guile in this game. This is not a complaint. I know that's simply how the game is.

So I'm curious if you guys are still playing regularly and leveling up. The game is not that fun to me and I've lost my drive.

The game is still fun for me probably because I had so much to learn from jump.

I've been focusing on my (fraudulent) neutral game this week, and every time I punish a whiffed poke it feels like 1991 all over again.

But I know a lot of folks with more experience been bored with the game and I can understand that.

quit for awhile due to frustration, but got back into it lately. I genuinely enjoy the game most of the time.

however, it's a horrific consumer product so I understand all the hate. basic quality-of-life improvements have taken forever to release. netplay is the same or worse than in week one. new characters animate worse than NRS games -- Ed is embarrassingly janky (that sweep animation...fucking hell) and Kolin is not much better.

I think S2 was a bad turning point for the game, because at that point it was clear that Capcom had no idea what the fuck they were doing gameplay-wise (made it harder for casual players, and more punishing for serious ones).

Yeah. Part of the killer for me was the dumb S2 changes. It wasn't just a tweak. It changed how the game is played. Good on ya for keeping at it, though. I should at least play here and there.

I just want a Rashid to make top 8. Best chances would be Cool Kid, Oil King, and John Takeuchi. Other wish would be the obvious -- America winning SFV, finally.

Will it happen, though? It's hard to imagine since it never has. I'll take a shot at a top 8 without knowledge of which players are mutually exclusive due to the bracket layout.

Phenom
Infiltration
Punk
Snake Eyez
Bonchan

Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's the characters. I think Guile is too beatable and I think Balrog's offense is more stoppable than people think. Especially offline. I may be completely wrong.

I predict Snake Eyez, Du, and PR Balrog will be in the top eight from the US (also not knowing how the brackets actually shake out).

I think Phenom, Xian, Nemo, and Fuudo will also be there.

Chris G is my sleeper/dark horse pick for top 16.

Cat's aren't diggin this one huh? He is cool to me. I just wish they would have made him more proportioned. Maybe cause they wanted to show him to be the biggest character, but being proportioned would have been too big for the screen? Would be too big for other characters to grab around his waist for moves? Gonna be intersting seeing how other characters perform their grab moves against him. IE Lauras super move. How is he gonna fit thru the doors of the bus on the Hong Kong stage during a KO? That cannon at Karin's stage?

In response to Reply # 252

(see: Birdie, FANG)

Gameplay wise? He looks hella unique and scary. Having a big body like that with FOUR charge normals (like Gief's stand Fierce), a parry v-skill and an armored charge (that can be canceled into the parry!), he could be a problem (especially for my main, Laura). I think he's a fresh addition to the roster. After Kolin, Ed, and now Abby, I'm feeling like the Season 2 newcomers are all keepers. Really hype to see Menat and Zeku now.

As far as how he's gonna look in game, I think Hugo is the best clue. He's a bit bigger than Hugo, but only a bit. But time will tell.

than I am with broken animations. Ed gets on my fucking nerves with that spastic idle animation, teleport dash-in, Lego-style airborne MK that pops out of nowhere at a 90 degree angle, and numerous assorted choppy frames.

he animates so badly it's distracting to gameplay. add on a little online lag and Capcom hates us.

Yeah. Things like the Ed issues you mentioned are very distracting. Things that make 0 sense kinetically.

Regarding the Abigail hate, I think the bigger issue is not Abigail himself. I think the real issue is that it's a terrible time for Capcom to release a joke character. Just IMO.

They had him on Winner Stays On and he looked dope:

His command grab has no range. Seems more like a good normals character.

Plus I like it when they put Final Fight people in the game.

In response to Reply # 259


  

          

The reveal trailer didn't do a great job of selling the character, because I legit think he's the best Season 2 newcomer so far. And I like Kolin and Ed, but it seems a lot more detail and attention was given to Abby than them.

Also, that trailer was buggy. He was swole up to his V-Trigger size the whole time. He's normally less roided out:

The animations involved for both the character getting grappled and him grappling other characters looked very odd. Even was Abigal grabs another Abigal character, it doesn't look right, at least from the instance I saw during that WSO stream yesterday.

I'm not a huge fan of his character design. It's a bit too goofy for my tastes and can be toned down a bit, but I have no problem with his animations. In fact, I think most of his animations are fantastic. For his throws, there are frames where you can see some clipping and hands not connecting, but it's not much of a distraction for me.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

is such an unexpected combination of my personal interests.

It's dope to have her finally looking like an athlete in athetic clothes, instead of a model in a MMA-themed photoshoot for King Magazine.

Futbol Rashid might be the dopest alt in the whole game tho.

Track Ibuki is alright, even tho she looks like she's about to get dusted in whatever her event is.
