That’s cool I will give it a go then. I play MK and samurai showdown but that’s about it. Maybe that’s what they mean by casual. I have only seen GG at a pro level and it looks pretty crazy and complicated but that’s pro level lol. Are people pissed about it losing its complexity? Or not enough info yet.

I’ll even check out xrd if it ever goes on sale as well, thanks.
I wouldn't laugh, if I were you. Imagine next MK or next SamSho being nerfed to simplicity, and you'll see why everyone is pissed about it losing its complexity. In short, they're removing the mechanics, which were the face of GG itself.

Mk11 did and it’s one of my favorites. I’m not laughing I’m asking if GG players (particularly pros) were pissed about the news. I take that as a yes?

I know some are mad about Mk11 but it’s the first FG I have taken seriously. I love arcs art style but watching never made me want to play. Until now I mean, they nailed the 2D look and it only gets better each game.

I don't recall anyone being pissed about Xrd's rework to the system outside of initial balance problems (option selecting a cancel).

Making a game more casual friendly doesn't have to inhernetly destroy what makes it good. Has there been any information on what they're supposedly removing or are they just going to have special move motions that aren't as awkward?

The rework's not the topic of discussion these days. If you check this interview out, you'll see what's going on.


Aesthetically, it's cool. The problem lies elsewhere. The mechanics and stuff that makes the GG no longer to be like the GG we knew for so many years.
 
Wow. They really overhauled all of May's animations.

And Mister Otter replaced with Mister Seal?

She looks great.

EDIT:

Every trailer now has highlighted the stage transition thing, but I'm also kinda noticing a sort of Injustice "clash" animation like at 27 seconds into that trailer. There was something similar in all the trailers with the Sol vs Ky fights... new replacement for Danger Time maybe?

Searching for an alt.
anyone watch the arc sys stream with Chipp and Potemkin yet? The game seems so very different. They really went hack and slash all over the system mechanics. The walk speeds remind me of injustice 1. I'm feeling trepidation for the first time as a GG fan since they went dark and the rights were all over the place.

Going hack and slash all over the mechanics was intentional. They want the game to sell more, and GG fans who buy the games may be loud, but they are not a large amount of people.

That all said honestly I am pro what I have seen. Cutting a lot of shit mechanics like blitz shield and YRC's is A-OK in my book. Removing dead angles and just melding it with RC and such, it cuts back to what the core of the game is IMO.

Though I say this as a fan of old GG games, I never like Xrd much.

The main reason I don't play the game very much, I don't have the same time I used to learn and practice all these things, so if they make it quicker to get a good grasp on them game, it will make me happy.

I honestly am not gonna get this game if venom isn’t in it. But since they seem to be dumbing the game down I highly doubt he will make it in. The amount of depth that dude has as far as setplay/setups/oki is unparalleled.

edit:just saw they added ramlethal. Ok I’ll get it lol. But pls arcsys bring venom back...prob my fav character of all time from any fighting game.

TONS of people complained about how xrd gimped most characters or how the game became even more oki heavy and how yrc ruined neutral and many other things as well though, i just got into fgs and still see people talks about it all the time.
but people will always hate the new game for being different. just like when reload and slash players shit on ac because the combos are getting too long and there were more oki and corner carry, the same gripe ac players have about xrd. now that strive toned the combos down a bit xrd players will complain about them

Xrd was absolutely the GG for babies compared the the X2 series.
YRC's suckkkkkkk

Makes me happy most xrd players don't like strive, stay in your stupid game I am ready for something new cause X2 ain't making a resurgence anytime soon.
