Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Why good players lose to bad ones.

The best thing you can do is play people better than you. Losing sucks but you learn a lot more than from people who you just steamroll. Get in lobbies with other PAers, since we run the whole skill spectrum. They're nice and will help you with advice and stuff. Furthermore, in Super, you can watch your own replays to see why you lost! How cool is that?
Step 2a: Getting a fight stick.
The Joystick Rant
Just buy a god damn TE. Don't ask in the thread, don't second guess it, don't read reviews online, don't poll your friends. Do you know what everyone is going to tell you? GO BUY A GOD DAMN TE. You know what people will say if you ask if you should get an SE? Save yourself the trouble and buy a TE. And then you'll be like "Why is the TE so much better than the SE?" and we'll all say "The buttons suck and you'll have to replace them and it just saves a lot of time and probably money just to get the TE." And then you'll ask us "But what about a Hori stick? I heard those are good." And then everyone will say "Yeah those are okay but they're not as good as the TE or even the SE because it's harder to mod" and then some silly goose will say "Hey, I like Hori's" just to confuse you but then someone else will be like "Yeah Hori's are fine but is it better then the TE?" and the original silly goose will be like "Oh no nothing is better than the TE" because nothing is better than the TE. And then you'll ask us why the TE is so good and the answers will invariably involve the modability, out of the box professional quality parts and the overall sexiness and build quality. But then of course because you have to make this difficult you'll say "I can't use Japanese parts because I need an octo gate, I can't use a square gate, also I need a bat top and some sort of adapter to make it work and blah blah blah" and invariably someone will come in and link you all the things you just mentioned above and tell you where to buy it from.

So I just saved the whole thread like three pages of people trying to be the first to recommend the TE and the ridiculous questions that come with it. JUST. BUY. THE. T. E.

Now that we have that out of the way, here are some stick related links:

RanBats!
RanBat Season 3 (Current)
Ranbat Season 2

Ranbat Season 1 Spreadsheet
Okay, revised ranbat rules for added clarification.
First off, let's start with some definitions:
  • RanBat - RANking BATtle. It's what you're reading about. Players compete in tournaments to earn points and get ranked based on how many points they have earned.
  • Round - A single round. The announcer usually yells "ROUND X" before these start, with X being the round number. In between rounds, a player does not access any menus and cannot change characters.
  • Game - A grouping of rounds, usually best of three or five rounds. After a game ends (online at least) both players are returned to the lobby ready screen and character select.
  • Match - A collection of games against one specific human opponent during a single round or period of a ranbat.

Next: generic ranbat rules.
  • 99 second, best of three rounds, best of three games in a match unless otherwise specified.
  • All characters allowed.
  • Only the loser may switch characters, the winner may not switch characters, but is allowed to change ultras if desired.
Nextly, scheduling and signups!
  • All ranbats @9pm eastern!
  • Xbox 360 ranbats on Tuesday
  • PM ChaosHat on 360
  • Log onto IRC at the start time!

Anyways, onto the actual RanBatting.
There are two phases to a ranbat night, the pools period, and the playoffs period. The exact structure of these is up to the organizer, but here are some formats you can expect. First, the pools period. There are two ways the pools period is run generally, depending on turnout. On especially low turnout nights, it is not unprecedented to skip pools. The pools period is meant to select the players who will go to the playoffs period, usually a top 4 (but potentially more in the event of large turnout). Regardless of whichever method is chosen, it is vitally important that you record your match wins and losses, as well as the games wins and losses, as the games wins/losses can be used to break a tie in the event two people have identical match records.

The Pools Period!
When the time comes, the RanBat organizer will randomize the list of entrants and post this random list. You will find your name on this list and play the three people above you and three people below you on the list. You will (as of season three) earn two points per match win at this phase. After this, you'll report your record (usually in IRC) to the organizer who will compile the data and determine who moves on to...

The Playoffs Period!
Playoffs will now be a single elimination bracket of the top four players, mostly to save on time. Just for making it to the top 4, you will earn one point. You will also earn two more points for each match you win while in the playoffs.

At the end of the season, the top players will be put into a big asynchronous RanBat finals bracket to determine the overall season winner!

The PA Fighting Game Community!
We have a friends list, you can access it here!
First, enter your data here, using this form!
Then, you can view the list of players here.

If you're on the 360, you can add the metafriend: A PA SSF4

We also made a super cool IRC room! #PAFighting at irc.slashnet.org:6667 You can use this web client if you're SUPER UNCOOL. So people know, we are naming ourselves LFG_YourName in irc if you're looking for a lobby, and LFM_YourName if you're looking for more people! Simply use /nick to change your name in chat. You should use a non web client because sometimes the web client breaks while the server is still up for some unknown reason. If you need help configuring IRC, Blackbeard made this super cool guide:
How to get mIRC working

Step 1: Go to http://www.mirc.com/ and click Download mIRC and install it. Just do all the basic stuff and let it do its thing. It's pretty fast.

Step 2: Go file > select server. Under connect, click on servers. Then click the Add button that appears on the right. Under description, put whatever you want. Under IRC server, put irc.slashnet.org, ports put 6667, and for group put #PAFighting. Password leave blank. Hit ok when done.

Step 3: Click connect again on the left menu, and fill out the nickname box and other info (I had to also do full name and email before it stopped giving me shit. I also unchecked invisible mode in case it did what it sounded like). Click the connect button under those info boxes, and wait a sec. A box should pop up asking what channel to join. Enter #PAFighting and click join. That should do it. If you get an error at this step, you may have to reopen the server select menu, click on firewall, and add port 6667. I had to, but your mileage may vary.

Know anything I'm missing? Let me know and I'll add it.

    For the record shady, octogates are the best for everything except:
    1. combos into charge ultra from a down, up motion (ie, Balrog's headbutt into ultra, Chun's Ex SBK into ultra)
    2. 2149 motions (easier to find the corner)
    3. Super jump cancels (mostly for the above reason)

    Go octo for everything else. Although I haven't used one in forever.

    Come on now, this has been discussed to death. Arguing that something is "best" always pales in comparison to personal preference.

    Additionally, one can argue that square gates are "best" for all purposes because you get equal triggering areas in all 8 directions.

    I'm not saying one argument or the other is correct, but it can be argued both ways. My personal belief is that personal preference > all.

    Creed is the man.

    So, query, in your guys eyes, what do you think the best way to practice and improve is.

    I am grinding on the PS3 trying not to scream when it lags despite having more fun / being a better fighter on the 360, but the tourneys are on PS3.

    Just grind ranked?

    I played a guy I met at the last tourney last night and the night before, grinded 25 matches, losing one. I wasn't learning anything, per se, but it was helping with execution.

    That good or bad? i.e., do I keep letting that guy practice against me so I can work on execution or abandon him?

    Honestly man, this is the trick: I play on Xbox, but all the stuff at EVO was on PS3. So what did I do?

    SO:

    Play on Xbox, or offline preferably, and get your links/execution down. Then one the tourney day, arrive early, even the day before, and play casuals on PS3 ALL DAY to adjust your timing. Then play the tourney and beast. You should not be trying to actively learn execution online at all if you can help it. Play on xbox if it feels better, and just get warmed up on PS3 for the event itself.

    That's possible?

    Oh my god.

    I got the Power A controller for that purpose, but the damn thing is slightly different from the 360 controller, just enough to piss me off (specifically the angles which it considers a "down" input on the analog and how sensitive the shoulder buttons are).

    If I could just my 360 one, I'd be oh so happy.

    CRT's have NO LAG. However, they are heavy and old as you said. The ASUS evo monitor is tourney standard, affordable, and also does not lag. Best choice provided you use HDMI.

    On to a different topic though. I know people are bitching about Cammy losing her instant cannon strikes, but it sounds to me like her normals are going to be beastly and her combos will be a little easier. I think I'm okay with this.

    Ok, here's the deal then:

    Stick guy tells me the official xbox 360 pad CAN NOT BE MODDED to play on PS3, it has something to do with MS making the PCB some proprietary mumbojumbo. Also, analog stick can not be hacked over either. So if you use the analog instead of the d-pad you are out of luck.

    Therefore, your best option for a dual modded 360/PS3 controller is getting a MadCatz Fightpad, and modding it to use on PS3 as well. This is the only thing that consistently works, well technically you can mod a HORI pad also, but those are harder to find and harder to mod.

    SO, if you are interested in getting a modded Madcatz fightpad, if you think that will work for you, just PM me and we can discuss specifics. Otherwise tell me it won't work here, and it's np.

    Are the Madcatz pads all the same? i.e., I am fine with the current 360 pad I use. Is the PS3 Madcatz pad the same as the 360 ones?

    If so, could just try that instead of modding....but it looks like a D-pad.

    Are the Madcatz pads all the same? i.e., I am fine with the current 360 pad I use. Is the PS3 Madcatz pad the same as the 360 ones?

    If so, could just try that instead of modding....but it looks like a D-pad.

    They are exactly the same on both platforms, though I believe the PS3 one is wireless and the 360 one is not. They don't have analogue sticks, though. They're all d-pad.

    Technically the specs are identical, however, you HAVE to mod a 360 pad to work on PS3, it doesn't work the other way around. This is what I'm speaking of:

    http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Street-Fighter-IV-FightPad/dp/B001M22WMO

    It's a regular dpad, 6 face buttons and 2 shoulder buttons, all mappable. I've used one, before I got my fightstick and will say it's a considerable step up from the stock 360 pad. What do you think?

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    I used the D-pad fine back in the good 'ol SNES days :). Might work.

    Tourneys require wired, though, and if none are wired for PS3.... :(.

    Damn, found a nice Bison one too 510X9optjHL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

    Biz, the 360 one is WIRED, and WILL work on PS3, at least that's my understanding.

    You can get a wired 360 pad, and mod it to work on PS3.

    is it actually good to play on those heavy crt tvs? I was thinking about getting the evo 2009 monitor but not if it's gonna mess me up

    CRT's have NO LAG. However, they are heavy and old as you said. The ASUS evo monitor is tourney standard, affordable, and also does not lag. Best choice provided you use HDMI.

    Plasmas have almost no lag, significantly better than most LCD's, at least when you are talking about televisions that normal people can afford.

    Right, but it needs to be modded to, right?. I was trying to inconvenience the least amount of people (since I'd be going through Amazon, through you, or having people take me to a Gamestop or something).

    Looks like there's no choice, though.

    ...ah, fudge it, lets try it.

    Biz, the guy can buy the pad for you, OR you can provide it. It's up to you. I can set it up so all you do is pay the money and wait for your new, dual-modded pad in the mail.

    Biz, I used a fightpad for a long time before getting a stick and I think the d-pad is fantastic. It might take just a little getting used to but it is great quality.

    Slightly off topic, but I had planned on playing SSF4 all night yesterday but decided to try Super Meat Boy first. I couldn't put it down, it is fuckawesome.
