    GGs! Was very fun. That last set was a great close out one. I was happy to be able to keep it that close with Nana. I need to practice more myself so I can keep up. This game is fun but fucking rough sometimes. I did feel like I learned some good things this time through though. Hopefully I can remember them so I don't have to re-learn the hard way. I've never played Seth, Carmine, or Byakuya before tonight. More detailed thoughts on them later but they all seemed cool and varying degrees of weird.

    What games do you want to see for srk2 Fight Nights?

    Not to muddy the waters but I only get one vote and that poll is a Sophie's Choice of game options so I wanted to add:

    I'm interested in hearing about how the online games in that package play. I'm sort of interested in messing around with 3S but I have zero faith in Capcom netcode so I'm going to wait to see how it does in the wild first.

    Rad. Saturday may be the best day for that. I'll let you know how that shapes up.

    Long weekend + wife working = time for animu! Hopefully I can get a little training time in on this and hop online a bit again. Its a really fun way to take a break from SFV while still playing fighting games. I also want to start working on May in Rev2 but I'm anime torn between that and UNIEL with only so much time to go around. @misterBee If you end up with time maybe we can get another batch of sets in.

    That is super rad. I always wanted to get a custom stick made but I never had any ideas that stuck with me enough to commit to it. Closest I ever came was getting my MvC3 TE1 stick modded to work on current gen consoles.

    Yeah the new stick will hopefully help with that and be very nice to look at in between rounds and matches. Hey guess what

    RIP John Candy Thinking about it, marriage is a lot like playing SFV sometimes. You think you're doing everything right and things are going well, then you guess wrong and get hit with a big CC into dizzy into death. The training and analysis feels like it is starting to click. Didn't get as much time to play yesterday as I'd hoped for but I did get a chance to play a couple of sets and those felt a helluva lot better. Even with the wins I still made plenty of mistakes and definitely still have stuff I need to drill into my head, but it did feel good to have things pay off in match. Hopefully I can get some longer sessions in this weekend to continue to work on this stuff in matches. @Bea_Iank I totally hear you about the connection quality. The matches I played yesterday were the first all week that weren't hiccupy or rollbacky. Its possible to play through a certain degree of it but damn is it frustrating, especially when goofy stuff happens because of it (like getting back thrown out of a 3f gap pressure string). Keep fighting the good fight! Online in this game is a fucker between the connections and how some of these folks play. Practice and mental fortitude will deliver us all eventually.

    Shine on you crazy diamond. Though I'll be honest, I like FFVIII a lot more than a decent chunk of the post VII FFs just because it is such a big mechanical shake up.

    Soul Calibur Thread - Return of Neclord's Waifu

    Counter : FFVII is one of those games that has been blown way out over the years because a) it was one of the last big things Square made that really resonated with people, and b) at least in NA it hit at the perfect time for an entire generation to have that be their first JRPG experience (and for a lot of those people it was also their first real exposure to Japanese gaming media that way). Point 'a' has led SE to trot it out over and over because its an easy way to make a buck. Point 'b' means that SE can keep on making those bucks for a long time. I try to have an even mind about FFVII but I came to the series really early (technically at FF1 but the one I really played was FFIV) so FFVII has always to me been the pretty okay game where the series started to turn away from what I like. All that random shit aside, this makes sense. Namco has already been collaborating with SE on stuff like getting Noctis into T7 so the door is open. And for as much as I don't give a fuck about not-Guts and his shitty bishi rival I cannot deny that including those characters in the game is an easy way to double? triple? the sales of the game just by pulling in the fanboys. Heck you can already see Namco doing it with pulling in Geralt. If you're going to tap guest characters, make 'em count. And look on the bright side: destroying shitty Cloud/Sephiroth players online would be really satisfying.

    Grats B. And you de-ranked a Ken in the process. Also good on you for protecting the identities of the fallen. Time for my online report. incoming. So I've been able to stick mostly to the training plan I put together. 30ish minutes of working on stuff in training mode, then 3-5 online sets to try to apply. Overall, still a lot of ups and downs. The ups are that my AAs are better and I think as an aggregate I'm doing better against Ultra Silver/Gold players than I have been so far. The downs are that I'm not doing as well as I thought/wanted to be against the Ultra Silver/Gold players, and I'm still getting tilted/flustered under pressure. Yesterday started off on a banger of a note: an Alex player who played like Jokee's advice was real (Lariat4Lyfe) with serious teleports periodically. That was a perfect combination of all the stuff that sets me off, and I really should have taken a break after it but I played straight on. Didn't do nearly as bad as I probably should have - especially since nerves and frustration at that point led to me dropping all kinds of stuff - but I really need to enforce a hard 5 minute break rule after matches like that. It does me no good to try to immediately hop back in. Playing this game is a rollercoaster. One day I'll finish up and feel pretty good about myself even if I lost all my sets. The next day I feel like shit, even if I go mostly even (which is what ended up happening yesterday). I know one of the things that is frustrating me is the lack of what seems like progress, but I think I'm looking for that too soon and I think I'm expecting too much. Working at it isn't going to get me to 2-0 sets against players I was having problems with before overnight. I have to keep at it until enough lessons click into place to where that starts to happen. The other thing that is sort of discouraging is taking a good hard look at how I'm playing in reviews. I thought I was doing okay there for awhile but it turns out I'm mostly shit. The list of things I have to work on feels long, and that is without even getting into the really fine grain stuff. Speaking of that, I think one of my bigger issues is that at a high level I don't really have an offensive plan. I just kind of sort of poke away and take what damage I can, turn things up when I get an LP Bolt or decent blockstring in, and sort of wait it out. That has served me well up to this point and it still works well against some of the crazies, but against the more defensive or even minded players I feel like I'm not doing enough to dictate the pace of the game or put pressure on my opponent. And it leaves me open for a lot of dash up stuff because I'm just sitting there waiting (though that is something I need to train; its on the list). Despite discouragement and frustrations I'm sticking with it. If nothing else I'm getting more and more match up and general player tendency knowledge. I'm dipping back into Ranked on Weds to see how things go there, though I also don't want to de-rank too much if I can help it so I can keep getting experience against US/Gold (which is where I seem to need it). Also has the connection quality been particularly shitty for anyone else? Out of the last couple of days of me playing only around 1/3 of the games I've played didn't have noticeable rollback. Granted I'm running into plenty of PC/PS4 crossplay (which I remember having issues) and fuckers keep showing up with Suzaku Castle and such for stages, which doesn't help. I was thinking the other day: for the way I naturally want to play this game, maybe I should have picked Birdie. Not that I'm necessarily gonna do anything with that, just a random thought.

    Pretty much. The last time I saw him post was about lewd pics. So I know he is still alive and fueled by tatas. Everyone raise your lewds to the sky to give him your power!

    I've seen him post in the discord recently so he's still kicking around so far as I can tell.

    That is damn funny. Not that I can talk too much shit because I still jump too much. But damn. "Surely he won't expect the 11th dive kick!!!"
