    hmm, perhaps I will try Yang a smidge

    Makoto actually made me think of it when I tried her out for about 5 seconds earlier! But then I found the Rindoukan bible and got scared off

    I will revisit her and see what's up

    and yes it is basically the dandy steps that I love

    I will check Dudley out, but all I ever hear is bad thing about him and I think that has soured me on the thought

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights all the traits of greatness starlight at my feetRegistered User regular
    yeah man don't play dudley

    and obviously i can tell you whatever yang things you need/want to know

    but i strongly recommend makoto

    The Rindoukan Bible might seem difficult to penetrate at first but honestly it's a good thing to have for a character.

    I mean, it's better than trawling the Shoryuken forums for something.

    Oh! And you can also use these for Makoto: (Disclaimer: note sure if it's not just the Rindoukan Bible reposted??)

    It's the Cross Counter google doc of Makoto Notes

    What? Play dudley. Tiers are very balanced in ae and you wont get to the level of frustrating matchups for a long ass time

    Don't listen to tier blather at this point, play someone you like. Lots of characters have some sort of upper limit or flaw, but it seems to me by the time you hit it you're going to have good general skills.

    It doesn't matter if Justin Wong's Dudley would lose to Justin Wong's Rufus when you can't FADC, and you've got to look at your main a LOT.

    yang is cooler than dudley!

    no i am saying don't play dudley because i do not think he would like dudley based on what he has told us he DOES like

    Nobody is cooler than dudley except hakaan and fuerte, in that order.

    Hakaan is the coolest.

    I'm still kinda baffled why Gootecks didn't open up a google doc for every character in the game instead of waiting.

    If you're gonna crowd source character info you should probably allow people to source their info for every character and not just one at a time.

    Maybe he figured it would be higher quality because they're focused on a single thing?

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights all the traits of greatness starlight at my feetRegistered User regular
    yang/rose oh no don't play him he's not high tier

    Dudley is also a difficult to pick up character.

    Most of his basics aren't exactly simple (neither are Makoto's or Yang's but they're easiER, imo)

    And maybe I'm weird but god that is too many target combos to remember.

    Play the whole cast to find who you like and learn about each character simultaneously because there are no SF to GG analogues.

    Oh yeah, I realize that any sort of high-level balance is pretty irrelevant in regard to my play

    I had just only heard dislike for Dudley and so already felt biased against him

    I'ma check him out, though, at least to have the vaguest idea of what the dude plays like

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights all the traits of greatness starlight at my feetRegistered User regular
    hm

    i don't think yang has basics

    if you only know the basics of yang i feel like he loses to pretty much the entire cast

    it's only when you can command grab, command dash, can consistently go for resets, and can FADC that he even becomes formidable

    yang wasn't easy in AE and he's a pain in the ass in 2012, i wouldn't recommend him unless you're ready to put in a lot of work with him

    as far as playing him, when you get going with dudley, you feel like such a fucking boss

    jab jab stand roundhouse xx ex machinegun > duck upper blow feels like some badass crazy combo every time and it's your bnb

    i say this like all the time but i cannot stress or hammer home enough that one of the reasons I'm as "good" as I am is because my little brother and ran really long extended sets just hitting random over and over

    everyone is fun (except bison vega and juri), and it's not like you have some sort of deadline

    so fuck around and have fun with us

    Yeah, I realize that, and I'm sort of doing that now

    Someone had mentioned earlier how there were so many characters in AE that there's someone for every play style, so I was just curious as to who everybody would suggest for a "Slayer of Guilty Gear" play style

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights all the traits of greatness starlight at my feetRegistered User regular
    makoto.

    LRSpdfo.png
  • interrobanginterrobang kawaii as  hellRegistered User regular
    the problem with SF->GG analogues is that

    the way that everything works in GG, from movement to offense to blocking, is so so so drastically different compared to AE

    that it's hard to come up with comparison that aren't purely superficial

  • interrobanginterrobang kawaii as  hellRegistered User regular
    like there ain't no false roman cancels in AE

    there ain't no IADs in AE

    etc.

    adrian is correct but makoto

    Oni can technically IAD if you tiger knee his air dash

    But I'm only saying this because I'm a pedant.

  • HunteraHuntera Rude Boy Registered User regular
    Oni actually has a couple combos (super impractical require a focus crumple in the corner and full super) that can use a tiger knee air up dash.

    Specifically something like: focus crumple, tiger knee air up dash xx air raging demon.

    The air up dash will pop up someone in a focus crumple and is also cancelable into his air demon.

    High level Oni play is a really weird vortex of cross ups on the air and the ground, with a few overheads mixed in.

    The air cross ups are especially interesting because he can do a vortex that looks like

    Is he going to do a jump in normal
    Is he going to air backdash and bait a thing
    Is he going to tatsu in front
    Is he going to tatsu cross up
    Is he going to air dash into a tatsu cross up

    It's a laundry list that rarely works but is pretty damn fun to watch if you can play that mind game.

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights all the traits of greatness starlight at my feetRegistered User regular
    like i can wear the same shoes as yang with a yang colorway you do not know how excited i am right now
