Been in love with this game since prerelease and now that it's here, I can't put it down. ;v ;

Maining my homegirl Peacock! She's just way too much fun to play as. Even if I suck hardcore ;-; My execution is a**. Hopefully that'll come with time.

The funny thing I find is how EVERY character has people crying about how OP they are, lol. Apparently everyone needs to be simultaneously buffed and nerfed haha


Pretty much. I think the one nerf that does need to happen though is Double's Hornet Bomber Assist (hard kick variant) because it's missing the vulnerability frames upon start up. Not a big change (It's only a 3 frame vulnerability), but it does make it more fair so that you can knock Double out of it if you can see her coming.

Other than that, I've seen complaints about most of the cast, mostly about Cerebella (oh mah gawd, her Something Spectacular special does way too much damage!) and Parasoul. Actually, I don't I've seen anyone complain about Painwheel yet; I'm probably looking in the wrong places or not enough people play her.

Despite cries for nerfs/buffs, these people seem to forget that you can dodge and block these moves. Heck, I've heard Mike Z complain about people who don't block.


lol yeah, it's amazing how much better you do when you remember to block haha!

I've seen complaints about how Peacock's zoning is too spammy/OP (one person insisted that all of her moves needed reduced damage and she needed some weird ridiculous limitations lol), about Valentine and how her reach is too long and her moves hit too fast, how Fortune's head messes up people's GDLK COMBOS, Double is unreadable and how Filia is SO MASHY. rolleyes

So basically... a bunch of BS! XP

Painwheel is a bit harder to come by since yeah, she seems to be the least played character ): But even for her, I've seen folks complaining that her flying is unfairly good haha. Pretty much it's that every character excels at something and some people just don't like that I guess!

Hornet Bomber does seem to be the big thing right now, but afaik the devs are gonna wait and see if it's really as big an issue as people are making it out to be, or if it'll get figured out. I think that's their approach to any balance patching type deals isn't it?

Painwheel is amazing. I run into her quite often on XBL. Thank god for Napalm pillar.
I had some games with my friend the other day and he pointed out quite often how ridiculous it was that Cerabella can land her grabs and Blockbuster on blocking opponents. That is pretty stupid since it literally leaves the target with no possible escape from monstrous damage if they are blocking.

So far my top tier characters are Ms. Fortune, Valentine, and Peacock. I'm also looking forward to when the release DLC characters. Hopefully they'll add an in-game movelist, which I'm still wondering why they didn't include one in the first place.

I read earlier that doing the command lists would've taken too much time when they needed to make sure other things about the game actually worked like the online and stuff. Don't fear though, the command lists will be patched in, most likely the first thing they patch.

That's how it is in all fighting games though: if you can't get in actual hits because your opponent is blocking, grab them. I do see where you're coming from about the "Something Spectacular" blockbuster, which does really good damage (IIRC, about 40% of your lifebar in a 1v1 if you just use the super). With that said, you still have a short window to interrupt the move or jump out of the way and punish it.

No I don't mean that, I mean her grabs connected during block stun as in it was impossible to escape it. He was being punished severely just because he successfully blocked. Unless it was some slight input delay or something, but this guy is one of those fighting game nuts who says 123 instead of up down left and knows all the frame data of everything, so if he's calling BS I'm taking his word on it. I tried the setup again a few times and it kept connecting even though he knew exactly when and where it was coming. I actually found it kinda funny the more I saw it happen.

Honestly, I respect Peacock as a character and all. But if not used correctly, she can be really damn cheap. I was playing ranked match today and all that person kept doing with peacock was shoot with her gun/cannon then use bombs cars (planes?) and more cheap s**t to keep my away. And plus she can teleport so that made her especially cheap imo
Valentine ftmfw >w< Gotta love the ninja nurse

Cerebella comes in second as my favorite character ^^

((btw, anyone else think Sundae, Alruna, and Reiko should be included as future DLC? <w< wink )
I find it odd that Cerebella can use a command throw mid combo.

Seriously a Double Mirror match is confusing as s**t. Especially when you both choose a stage that makes you basically the same color.

This game has been amazing and i cannot wait for more characters

I personally hope we get Big Band.

my favorite is Cerebella by far. smile
marie is in my opinion the best of them all--
i guess you can't count her in sine she's a boss, but still...

out of the playable characters, i guess my favourite was... double. she's pretty fun to play as. painwheel also has my heart.
