    Apparently, Uncle JBeezY saw this news on Twitter before bed. So I couldn't wait to wake up to tell y'all the Dead Or Alive 6 Beta is officially open on PS4!

    From their official twitter

    https://twitter.com/DOATEC_OFFICIAL/status/1083586801804013568
    Fighters Online Beta test for #DOA6 is available for pre download now! It will be playable Jan. 11th 2019 at 8:00AM PDT - Jan. 14th 7:59AM PDT. Kasumi, Ayane, Hayabusa, Hayate, and one of the most anticipated newcomers, Diego will be the available characters!

    We can only play Ranked mode for beta so no training mode. Same as Soul Calibur beta. Now I know what I'm doing this weekend! Rejoice!

    connection has been really bad for me so far even full bar con is laggy, lots of DCs and freezes, just had a game where I couldn't even move. I did press buttons but my character never reacted.

    Been hearing all bad things about the connection thus far from practically.....anybody who is currently trying the beta. Damn this aint good....

    HOWEVA

    The first day of betas are always the messiest. It was the same with Soul Calibur and DBFZ. So i think it will get better as the weekend starts. Uncle JBeezY will go ALL THE WAY LIVE on Twitch in about 2 hours. Im ready for the shits!

    My friend Swoozie used to be a pro at this game, think he retired though but he was a boss. I loved the bouncy mechanics.

  10. Maybe I'm just haven't played DOA in awhile, and I never played against people, but so far I think I may hate it. It was my #1 most anticipated game this year, and I don't even know if I want to play any more of the beta.

    Some of it just feels rough around the edges with black screens and the intros grinding in slow mo on every match I played, but it also feels clunkier than past games to me. I don't know a whole lot about DOA, but it feels a little wrong somehow. I never had trouble enjoying DOA5, but something isn't clicking here yet for me. Maybe I've just gotten accustomed to playing SC6 and its freer movement.

    I hope it comes together, or I figure out how to get comfortable. If not, I may end up skipping this one.

    I streamed for about 3 and a half hours and super dig it so far. Netcode holds up good, only bad matches were against wifi players(which you can see ahead of time now which is awesome. Game feels smooth as always, I like the new meter system as well.

    Only complaint is I guess I just don't like the beta roster? Which isn't the games fault but like I fought a few dudes who obviously knew their shit with Kasumi and Hayabusa and I am just sitting there playing Ayane cause I used her for a few hours in DoA4 and like how the fuck do I do anything. If I could pick Bass or Tina I would have done much better but I guess that's just an "Oh Well" kind of thing.

    Overall, thumbs up!

    Day 1. I had a fucking blast but mostly because of the ppl in my chat and not much of the gameplay. Been playing DOA since part 1 and im really disappointed with this so far.

    I hsd to restart my stream 3 TIMES because maaches would FREEZE and i had to restart the game and 1 discconection in the middle of a match that had me stuck in a black screen. Its shameful.

    Gameplay...sadly...is not that good. It feels like fighting in mud. Movement is much slower than last DOA at least to me it feels that way. Input delay is so bad with moves i didnt want to come out, came out and i died many times. Diego is hot but his moves are not. Lol

    That super block hold whatever mechanic is blah! Special attacks are underwhelming. This beta is just...broken in a very bad way.

    I wish we had a waaaaay better selection of characters to play cuz after this beta, i dont think im gonna waste my money on this game.

    Yes, its only day 1, and ill stream it again probably but Dead Or Alive is looking more like Dead on Arrival...

    *Sigh*

    I think you're thinking of someone else with the Love Doctor? But yeah he's a cool guy, I gamed with him and knew him before he was in the spotlight back on the first original Xbox. I wonder if he'll get into the new DOA.

    Nope, Swoozie moved to Youtube and become a love doctor. He gained a ton of followers and probably made a bunch of money with it.

  17. This thing forgot my buttons. It remembered them in the options screen, but I jumped into a match with default buttons and was really confused. I was so impressed how polished the SC6 beta was, and how little issues the game had when it came out. This thing is a bit rough, and putting me off the game.

    Maybe I'm not getting the game. I'm still not liking it, but I'm going to keep trying. It's the only upcoming game I've been looking forward to, so it's going to be a bummer if I don't end up liking it.

    Oh I thought you meant like an actual series lol, yeah he'll give advice but based off his own experiences. Thought you meant like he had a series called "The Love Doctor" lol because I typed that in and other people came up lol. But yeah he's been a YT star now for a while, I've had the pleasure of working with him from time to time. Some of his cartoons you've seen, good chance I've done some voice work for them;)

    Wave dashing has been in DoA already it certainly isn't cheating.

    Seems like you just didn't know what to expect out of the game. Maybe it ain't for everyone but so far I am a big fan of what I am seeing in it as a longtime DoA fan.

  21. I'm 100% sure I'm full on gutter trash at this game. Definitely the most basement performance I've had in a game, and that is saying something.

    I can tell I don't understand it at all.

    xWildx What a day. What a lovely day.

    It’s the stun system. If you don’t know what you’re doing when stunned you’re going to get stomped every time.

    It certainly was NOT this. I was watching the stream of the Top Hayate player in part 5 played against some Diego player who literally was gliding across the screen like Gumbi forward AND backwards. The pro player was named Emery i believed and was pissed at that bs.

    I love me some Gumbi too but i know what i saw was some bullshit lol. Apparently ppl in the chat were saying that the devs know of that bug too. Another concern is the fact that they censored this game by taking out the "Jiggle" mechanics. I dont kno if its because they're trying to be more Esports or to appease this PC culture. Either way, it sucks. Soul Calibir did NOT bend in that way and stayed true to their design. I dont like hoe DOA is not.

    BUT if you want to give feedback, they have a lil survey for everybody who played the beta. Its not long at all if u care to give feedback.

    Honestly jiggle shit I can't care one way or another. I have been playing DoA since the 2nd game cause I legit find the gameplay super fun. No other FG lets you really get into another persons head like DoA does as the mechanics support it on every level. All the perv shit honestly I am glad its getting toned down because its a fantastic franchise and all everyone ever ballyhoo's about is tits tits tits.
