    Talim is total AIDS, when you fight somebody who's really good with her it's pretty much never your turn to press buttons up close. People sleep on her and there are buffs for her in next patch already confirmed. She's bonkers and will be even stronger.

    Agree with Party Wolf about Cervantes being shit. :/

    Talim has RE cancels, which is one of the most annoying things to ever exist in the history of life. Without that though she's not that good: she has gaps for GI everywhere and limited damage, also i10s destroy 90% of her stance pressure, making her have to take risk for little reward (unless close to a wall).

    The second they fix REs, which they should if they want to keep the game somewhat alive, she'll be meh tier.

    I already know that, the thing is:

    1. They have no intention of fixing RE, nothing of sort is mentioned for next patch
    2. Cervantes and several other characters doesn't have an i10, the best we, poor people can do is i12, so she can go pretty much ham on us.
    3. The only good option vs her left is GI but any decent Talim player who knows we dont have i10 baits that to crush our souls ;)

    It's already confirmed she will get buffed in the next patch. That with broken RE and fact that some characters don't have i10 means she is and will be even more (after patch) AIDS in several MUs.

    1. Because they are dumbasses. Doesn't matter though: MK11 is coming out! Wo!
    2. I know, I was just saying that she has some really trash MUs because of that. I play Azwel though and outside of sword mode the best I can do is i14, so I know the feel. Considering the hard time she has getting in, the mediocre damage, and the gaps she doesn't feel that problematic to me.
    3. If you get baited the Talim kind of deserves some damage though, but even so she probably won't do much.

    I don't know, outside of those goddamn RE cancels she doesn't feel that good to me. Hell I'd say she's barely even decent. Again though, in my play group we tend not to use REs and GIs a lot, at least compared to ranked, so there's that.

    Also we should play a set once, are you always on PC?

    Raph, Sophy, Yoshi, Azwel (sword mode only), Xianghua and Taki I think. I'm only sure about Yoshi, Raph and Azwel though.

  7. I'm absolutely addicted to playing Talim. She's so much fun.

    As an aside I'm not even sure how they'd fix RE. The system feels fundamentally borked. Even if I know the pro cons of everyone's options it still feels like a total guess. I generally use one of Talim's stance options in RE and hope it gives me a free combo. But the rewards just for being the initiator encourages you to initiate that guessing game often anyway.

    RE is just whack as fuck. Period. I am kinda interested in trying out Talim because she annoys me and I like annoying my opponents online. I mean, i main 2B and she's public enemy number 1! lol

    But Groh....i think hes on my list of characters to try next. Who here plays him?

    Make it cost half a bar of meter to use and remove its meter building. Removing REs entirely would be even better, but oh well.

    1. I still like SC VI and will probably play it along side MK 11
    2. Not really dunno how much Talim exp you have but in ranked with top ranked Talim players everything is into RE stance either to cancel it and punish you for full combo or to play the roulette game. Both options sucks ass.
    3. Of lvl 2 (not to mention 3) GI which isn't really that hard to get if you know your oponnent strings she gets 80+ dmg, it's not the best in the game but above avarage.

    Every good Talim player i played always canceled almost anything into RE, the whole fucking game is her canceling into RE and waiting to see what you do. From there its either cancel into free combo or roulette game. Either way im guessing all the time, it's dumb.

    Im not saying she's great or something but she's good and will be even better after next patch and in some MUs she's amazing.

    Yes, i play only on PC. Didn't power on my X1/PS4 outside work for over a year now, i see no point, every game i like comes to PC anyway.

    1. Me too, but I don't know if I'll play anything besides MK11 once it comes out.
    2. Everyone top ranked would probably whoop my ass, so there's that. REs get annoying though, that I can see.
    3. I meant if Talim scouts your own GI, but yeah GIs should receive some mad changes too.

    And I agree that she's good if we count RE cancels, but not top like the list said. Anyway wanna play at some point?

    I said Cassandra was highly likely and dont mind her inclusion. I just wanted Setsuka and if Amy replaces her, that is going to be very disappointing. I know lots of peeps wants Huwang too.

    Also im putting full confidence the data mine is real because we had the same thing with DBFZ.

    On the launch stream where they showed off story mode, Maximilian asked about Cassandra's new design too and was told "they can't talk about it"

    Im confident about Cassandra but also worried about Amy. I just dont know if i would put trust in this game to give more money for a season 2. Once u fuck with Uncle JBeezY's trust, its gonna take A LOOOOT to give u a 2nd chance. Been done with DBFZ and this game is on its way with its poor decision making.

    But....i am oddly still hoping for the best for this game.

    Yoshimitsu, Xianghua, Taki and Raph are the ones that have i10s available to them at all times. Voldo has a i10 A while back turned and azwel has i10 AA only when sword mode is equipped or is in soul charge.

  18. So even though my post got unnecessarily deleted for being "off-topic", even though it was merely an answer to a question HE asked ME (so basically a response to an off-topic post), which frankly isn't really a good look, I wanted to extend my most sincere congratulations to Juggs and his Clemson tigers. I've had a couple of days to let it sink in, so I'm pretty much over the loss now. It's not as bad as 2016 when we came so close and felt like we got jobbed.

    But with that said, that's definitely one of the greatest teams of all time right there, no question about it, and we clearly underestimated them. Outplayed, outcoached, out-everything'd. So yeah, good s***. Look out next year though. We got studs coming back and coming in.

    But anyway, keeping it "on topic", am I the only one that just really isn't feeling SC6? I stopped playing like the first week and went back to Tekken. It's just too much of a far cry from classic SoulCal for me. The entire game is cutscenes that slow the game down (Reversal Edge, Critical Edge, Soul Charge, etc.). It's dumb. I keep hoping with every patch that they nerf Reversal Edge, but they still haven't, so they probably never will. It really sucks because my hype levels were like an 11/10 for a new SoulCal, and it's probably my favorite fighting game series of all time. *sigh*

    Well heres to DoA and MK11.

  19. I doubt you are the only one. I don't think it's super popular, not like any of the heavy hitters anyway.

    I personally think it's an "it" game for me. I feel like it lays out fighting game mechanics in a very visible way that even I can mostly tell what is going on. If I'm getting hit, I can generally tell why, and make better adjustments than I can in most games. (Unless it's against Sig, then I have no idea what is happening. I fucking hate that character more than all over FG characters in all of time)

    I can also learn more than one character, which wasn't true for Injustice and even less true for Tekken. Despite the great character variation, I still have had some success in trying and getting somewhat comfortable with random characters.

    I do miss playing Tekken, so I can't fault someone for sticking with it.

    SC6's 17th patch might try to bring me down, but MK11 has me covered.
