Played a little bit. Axl seems really cool and I've been having fun flailing like an idiot to poke people at range, I have 0% idea of what I'm doing.
The netcode has been great so far, hoping this has a good scene in Australia so that I can finally get the magical trio of "fighting game I like, that everyone else seems to like too, that also has rollback".

Yeah honestly the beta 100% sold me on this day one. I love GG games but COVID means itís very hard to play in person and the net code was so good. And they have a Middle East server!

I used to play a bunch of Blazblue with people in Kuwait on a now dead gaming forum, but I pretty much could ONLY play with them and there was still a bit of lag. We would all get together in a lobby and spectate one another and there was pretty much no other option.

The combination of actual server, insanely good netcode, and the fact that at least here they widely rolled out 5G (which is faster than many landline connections...) means this might finally be the point where playing these games primarily online becomes a real option.

When the time comes DM me your fightername and lets add each other on whatever friendlist is used for the game.

Does anyone else think Giovanna's stage intro sounds a lot like Sabotage except they shout FOOOD FIGHT! at the very beginning?

Also Nago's theme is just a hard rock version of Come Together.

As someone who played Xrd May, she still has damage, but not the wild counterhits from airnormals, and her command throw has utterly poo poo damage outside the corner.

Lost all her oki too but has better pressure now

I don't mind the lobbies in principle, and if you just want a list you can go to the bar for it, but boy I really hope they get whatever connection and matching data they need from it because the lobby desync is terrible. Also if you're player 2 you can't pick Sol or you're rolling the dice on disconnects. If you're anyone else and see Sol on the bounty poster then it's a guaranteed disconnect and you should back out, though you can't do that if the other person has readied for some reason.

Theres some de syncing in the game. I was listening to two friends play and on one screen my friend was beating up someone that was idel while the other friend was alrdy in the lobby waiting for him to start another match.

They watched their replays back to back and it all changed when my friend that was playing faust got a metor on his throw and the other friend never saw it on the screen.

Hey maybe clean up the spelling a little? I don't know if Faust got meter on a throw or a meteor on a throw.

I've had some pretty obvious desyncs playing a friend on Faust, usually after an item toss super, with zero when he was playing Axl or Ramlethal. Texas-UK, and sample size of one connection so grain of salt, but wondering if the same thing that was happening in the Accent Core beta applies here too.

Yeah, sure sounds like Faust's RNG isn't syncing or rolling back correctly. RNGs are always a plentiful source of synchronization shenanigans. Make sure to report it to wherever you're supposed to report that stuff for the beta and I'm sure it'll be fixed in no time. And by no time I mean in april or something.

did Faust's item toss also not work properly in +R when they patched in rollback?

I think I'll still end up getting this on PC because even though the wifi is surprisingly good on PS4, the load times while swapping between Training + Quick Match are still long enough to annoy me. I also refuse to give Sony money to use the internet I already pay for!! And I wanna see that beautiful animation in glorious 1440p. Hopefully there will be a big enough playerbase so that I don't get completely waxed on Day 1.

Normals can usually be cancelled into other stuff if they make contact, which can catch you mashing. Many specials tend to be minus but can often push you out of punish range on normal block. What really helps get you out of trouble are the defensive mechanics. FD can disrupt blockstrings by forcing stuff to whiff. IB greatly reduces pushback and can let you punish otherwise safe options. YRC (new dead angle) can stagger someone who has you in blockstun for 50% meter. You can also try backdashing or jumping out of some types of offense. In most cases if you can force a whiff it's unambiguously your turn, but if you're blocking stuff there is some RPS involved.

the best defense is to mash far slash from round start and never lose your turn.

I'm fully prepared for the "those characters you like are all either the worst or the most complex in the game" foot to drop, but until then I'll enjoy my ignorance.

I was living in Toronto when accent core was big and played the poo poo out of it with me and my buddies. Xrd came out when I moved to the Canadian prairies and there wasn't a ton of gg players around and the netcode was poo poo, so I dropped it.

After playing with this netcode, I'm completely back in.

This is me playing Sol. If I win the opening exchange I'm in with a fairly good chance of winning the round, if I don't I never seem to be able to get a hold of the other guy again! Especially if it's a Ky or Zato

I will outlast the Chinese government's buying of fat lady avatars with the true grit of the greatest generation

I've been playing nago a lot and my first move is almost always to blink away because I also mash slash sometimes and I've learned a few hard lessons. I also get a free hit if the other player goes for an attack since I can usually still reach them.

She looks great and should have guessed she'd be the final character since it's so obvious in retrospect but they've played it so safe with the launch roster. Really hope we get Zappa back and maybe some other older characters (Robo-Ky would be fun) and then some more new ones? I hope they don't just settle for rounding out the roster with everyone missing from Xrd Rev 2.

It just feels impenetrable. The basic tutorial is "press the left/right button to move left/right", then anything more advanced than that is just a total wall of jargon, inputs that feel like they have to be frame-perfect and stuff that feels like it just randomly happens sometimes.
