Xrd tiers in general are pretty drat flat until you get high level Japan play, and even then it's still pretty good. As a dude who came over from playing Smash, that's something that pleasantly surprised me because in Smash you 'feel' the tiers at way lower level play in my opinion. There's a few guys that are easier to get good at than other characters in Xrd, but you can pretty much pick whoever the hell you want and be competitive. Unless you pick Pot, in which case good luck, but even he's not complete garbage. I've been torn apart by good Pot players online.

potemkin is actually pretty decent in revelator

the changes to blitz and dust help him a lot and his damage got more reliable

he's still not top tier or anything but he's middle of the pack

though johnny wrecks him and johnny is really good in revelator so you win some you lose some

Since just before the release of the first game, they've been doing an Injustice prequel comic that's still going on today and has about four months left before it completely wraps up. They killed off an excessive amount of characters, sometimes to take heavy hitters off the table, yet they had enough foresight to stay away from using/killing Supergirl, Grodd, Atrocitus and Captain Cold. I'm kind of impressed that they had the roster figured out so far ahead of time.

Sadly, they just killed off Alfred, the best and most badass character in the series.

She did? What changed? Is she weak to some of the new mechanics or something? First I've heard of it.

I heard she got nerfed from 1.0 to 1.1 but that was before I started playing.

To give you a real answer, she's the same as she's been in Sign for the past year. Existing characters didn't get changed in Rev so unless overall system changes like the new Blitz change things, Ram is the same. Which means she's just fine.

for some reason i thought the 1.1 changes were due to revelator, then i realized im a moron lol

she is pretty low on all the rev tier lists ive seen though, but revelator is a pretty balanced game? the top tier characters are still the ones that are generally gonna take majors, but just about any character is competitive and can place high

also if you just want to keep people honest, just play Leo and UNGA people to death. he has a stance thing but that isn't really a gimmick meter like some GG characters have. peace.

Speaking of Leo, I don't have him unlocked yet (and the new version it out lol) so I can't play with him and I"m reading about some of his poo poo on dustloop and confused. Specifically about one of the properties of his 5H and f.S.

I hope they lazarus pit Alfred and bring him back for Injustice 2 DLC

Guard Point. What Anji was built around if you ever played earlier guilty gear games. Hakumen had a lot of them too if you played BlazBlue. Basically, it blocks attacks.

Oh yeah. I actually bet this was a deciding factor in their complete abandonment of PC, since they couldn't sell the krypt unlock microtransaction when you could just google and download an unlocker in two seconds.

like i mean they would have to write the engine from the ground up to work on pc (which given nrs record is lol), require an internet connection 24/7, and then actually not mess it up and if any of those things went wrong, you now have a bunch of ppl with full equipment day 1 on pc for what i imagine is a progression/gambling system.

...i mean apparently they've already been told? we have pretty much every GG except the very first PS1 game and Revelator on Steam, and I assume Revelator's happening since Xrd and Sign came out, and we also have like every blazblue on PC (even if Calamity Trigger was Windows Store exclusive for a while)

e: and SNKP has been going ham on PC stuff and Capcom's been... er... the least embarrassing on PC I guess? the SF4 ports are really good at any rate

It's unsurprising that NRS is abandoning PC considering they don't seem capable of doing the port themselves and they also don't seem capable of finding and hiring competent companies to outsource the port to.
