I feel like they never should have limited access to all variations to begin with. It's not like balance isn't an issue with set variations cuz it is. Either way the game needs to be balanced. With custom I feel balancing will happen all together and allow characters to feel more open and free. If they keep it preset then it will take forever to balance every character combination making me fear the game will never be quite balanced.I guess is this would be absolutely brutal on the dev team for upkeeping balance. Would love to see it though
These problems are not legit reasons to not even try custom. Honestly none if it is broke, the only thing that will come off it is different tier placements and balancing can easily fix that.Precisely this. How can someone train against a custom variation that they've never seen before, and regardless of the same character, fighting someone else is probably always going to be a different variation, meaning a different unknown matchup.
Seconded.its completely laughable people are using balance as an excuse when currently the game is so unbalanced.
Please compare a kollector vs geras
scorpion vs shaokahn
erron black vs kotal
The game is already unbalanced. lets at least make it fun
They design a universal Tournament Mode.im for kustom variations but how would it work? wouldnt you not know which moves you opponent has until they use it on you? if you had a minute to see which moves your opponent equipped then it seems fair. like another user said theres way too many moves characters have locked away. if theres no kustom variations at least bring in more variations.
#1 Casual statement of the thread.Too many things to remember or one OP combination - pick one argument. Christ.
This is not true for most characters. Some specials can completely change the mix ups and damage that a character gets, and the neutral options. It changes everything.What would custom variations really add to competition, the special moves in this game are so muted that I don’t think it’d have a big effect. I don’t believe a worse player w a custom variation would beat a better player w a tourney variation. Just about all that seems to matter is who has good strings/normals and who doesn’t.
I really recommend you re-read my post, friend. These are the arguments of the anti-kustom krowd. And they conflict on a basic level. Which is hilarious to me. If you've been around, you'd know I've been for kustom variations the whole time.#1 Casual statement of the thread.
Kroaken: Too many things to remember.
Starcraft 2 player (or any RTS, which have a FAR bigger mainstream audience): Hold my beer...
Ever heard of "the fog of war (FOW)"? Fighting games don't have to go through that even with it's limited tools. Know how many units a single faction has and how many different ways they can be used in Starcraft all while applying The FOW?
