Lol, I won't be here. It's fine. I'll let LB have all the glory in all
the games!

Actually, scratch that. I'll do an official announcement next week and
start the registration process. Date will be set for the 8th of August 2015.

On Thu, Apr 30, 2015 at 11:46 AM, Ryan Williams <ryan820509@xxxxxxxxx>

As in when do we announce it or as in when do we commence with planning
and discussions?

We have quite a few months to prepare so we're good for time. We've had
our initial meeting so what we can do is start doing some dry runs at Kami
to test our theories. I'm relieved that we didn't have too many hiccups
with PS4 streaming. The controller issues will require some attention, but
other than that, things are looking good. I'd also like to give your
whatsapp idea a shot to see how it works in practice.

I think we can start registrations a month prior to the actual event.
I'll ask Kami to assist with advertising and the like.

HAHA I am glad you enjoyed it LB :p

As a scholar you really shouldn't need mage's ballad (because you
have aetherflow and energy drain) BUT if she is spamming aldo like she says
she is then I am pretty sure she will run low on mp :)

The lyrics "My resurrection keeps the dragoons off the ground" is
also quite funny because the community have come to term dragoon's as
"floor inspectors" because they have such bad defense and always dying
(some raid groups refused to party with dragoon's before they received
several buffs). I think they did buff their defense in one of the patches
but I still think that their magic defense is quite bad.

Wow that just seems so broken. The brokenness aside, is Kitana any
good in this game - she use to be one of my favourite MK characters (I know
that mournful is suppose to be her worst variation?). I have kind of been
holding off getting the game, tbh I don't really like the animations of the
newer MK games - they don't seem to be as smooth as other games. Is it just
me or does Mileena and Kitana's heads look a little big in proportion to
the rest of their body? It might be some thing else, like Mileena's hair
making her head look bigger than it actually is.

From a none bias point of view does MKX have any longevity/ staying
power - or will it fade out in a couple of months time?

On a side note, I found this youtube video earlier hours of this

For anyone that played Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn, it's definitely
worth a listen - it is basically a parody "aetherflow" based on the
Disney's frozen "let it go" The lyrics are really awesome and JessPlays
shows off a lot of talent signing it (so it might be worth a listen even if
you never played the game).

It's basically about the struggles of DPS with long duty finder
queues (in this case a Black Mage) and then she changes to a healer
(Scholar) and experiences the benefits of insta-queues. I think if you ever
player scholar you would really appreciate/ understand the lyrics -- the
highlight for me is "I'm never going back, except to get swiftcast" :p

She also sings "Do you want to Kill a Titan" but lyrically its not as

Dude's don't seem know that as a group we've been breaking

That makes us better equipped to judge FG stuff.

You will see Kenshi in tournaments because there are
players who
the character.

That said, there are characters who are more competitively
than others at this stage of the game, so top players will
gravitate toward those characters. Its still early days
NRS's reputation, later patches will probably have a very
impact on characters and matchups.

I can see Kung Jin being strong. He has decent tools.
But his

Kano is surprisingly very fun to play and rewarding.
basic and solid. Not so much gimmicks. Almost like the
MKX lolz

D'Vorah is stupid technical. All those Wasp Cancel is
make me break the controller. But people are claiming
strong as hell.
Just need to choose the right variation for the right
matches...swarm queen
vs subz's grandmaster? yeah, thanks SAP for teaching
me that
lesson...all i
did was watch myself full screen range...

Mileena...well, totally different playstyle to her MK9

Cassie is a combo machine.

Goro = fuck all you guys, i'm ex punch walking.

Had a look at this stream

Not a big tourney with big names but cool matches. MKX
is at
end of the stream.

Quan Chi looks so damn good... that fucking bat. Combo
trance, summon bat then stupid mixup and quasi

Orb trap raiden also looks fun

No Goro

Did some tests regarding ducking command grabs since it
like Di managed to duck Goro's command grab in some

Erron Blacks command grab is fully duckable at all

Goros command grab is definitely not duckable...
greatly reduces the grabs effective range. If the
ducking then
goro can grab you at roughly normal command range but
if they
its slightly(very slightly) less than the distance at

And this refers to ducking without block. If you block
are getting pwnd
