    Anyone have advice for a Rachel user? The DVD has some really good playstyle advice for the other characters, but didn't seem as in depth with Rachel. At the low levels I am at, everyone is really aggressive, so I spend 99% of the time blocking and trying to get in a 6B counter hit to go into a combo. This doesn't really work against Noel, I can't seem to find a time to counter. Jin users seem to throw an ice sword from far away, then ice car at me. Nu... well... I can't really get any lobelia/wind stuff going, so I spend the whole match trying to get in close. If it's a bad Nu, it is an easy win. If it's a decent Nu, I can't touch them.

    1. Learn and master her B,B,C+D,D combo. Know how to connect it from A and jumping attack.

    After the D you should be able to do 236B, 22A or super. If you use the super, you can connect another small air combo.

    2. Know how to use wind + 236A B or C, (i.e 236 B+C will travel full screen, cover a lot of area), know how to aim different angle with different wind and power level.

    Need to know how to use wind to get alway from corner trap, combo, etc.

    3. Always summon that pumkin when you have the chance, its your best projectile, it do small damage, but you can combo off it, it interrupt enemy, it save you from your huge recovery moves. Most importantly, if you dash with wind, it will make your dash in combo a lot safer.

    When your in air, and your opponent is not in range for 2C, alway summon that thing, and aim it toward your oppoennt to cover your fall and apply pressure.

    4. Rachel is rush down character, her cannon recovery suck, unless its against haku-men, if you don't rush down and apply pressure, you will lose.

    5. Learn how to do her small jump 2C+D, its her best overhead, know how to do it in the middle of your combo so you can mix it up between BB (small jump) 2C+D *combo* or BB (s.j) land 2B *combo*. It will be your best mix up.


    On a non-related topic, we need more PS3 people for BB online tournment lol, the turn out is really really depressing.

    I have a PS3!

    Stable internet is another matter. Also, more relevantly, I just ordered the game from bestbuy, and it turns out it's backordered. So yeah. Perhaps I'll see you all in a month.

    Most pointless post ever? Perhaps.

    I remember email conversations with Mike Z back in the MSHvSF days, back when the primary hangouts for fighting games were alt.games.sf2 and Gouki's Page of Whatever. The Z Solution continues into Tager days over a dozen years later, apparently.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but how do you defend against throws? As Jin my friend uses his throw which freezes me, which gives him the chance to just walk up and throw me again and again. Nothing seems to work besides the barrier break thing.

    left right fast as you freakin' can. Also try to catch when you break out so you can go right into a block. Also, if your friend is repeatedly throwing you after he does it just throw break(throw as soon as you get thrown).

    pressing b+c immediately after they throw you will tech out of the throw. also you can break the ice by wiggling your joystick left and right rapidly.

    Just make sure you block carefully after the shake, otherwise you'll end up eating a bigger combo than not shaking it.

    Well, see as Blazblue is one of the few fighting games out that fits both criteria of

    a. Having a good netcode
    b. Being fun to play for me

    I'll probably be playing for a while.

    Uh, he didn't talk smack at all. He said that it's not easy for NA players to have the same amount experience in the game that you can from playing in a JP arcade just on the basis of pure numbers. And he got hate because people are afraid of a nerdy guy being the face of their game.

    The japanese arcade mindset is really different than the one in America, it's kind of interesting really. The way that a good player in say, VF5 will after trouncing you the first two rounds, make sure to almost kill you but not actually win the next to rounds, and then decimate you the last round. To get the most game time in per quarter, see?

    In blazblue related news, christ, I'm having a really hard time follow up Hakumen's 623 AA, with jumping C, landing, Crouching C. Do the jumping C too soon and the crouching C won't combo and do the jumping C too late and it won't combo at all. I'm sure its just a matter of practice.
