I understand they're trying to attract more players. But does
changing movement make people want to play more? only thing that this
changed is the skill gap between top players and mid level players. Which
are the 2 group that will play the game anyways since they like the
franchise.

However, T7 have did brought back older veterans from the dead like
Soyongdori, Crazydongpal, etc. While they were MIA in TTT2. TTT2 was too
much of a mess when it comes to tag combos, tag assault and set ups.
It's a
combo fest like you said. But on solo mode, it's pretty decent.

T7 have those odd T5 mini combos along with "bound" combos too. Like
Lei's uf4 f~2 f~2 f~2 ff34 nonsense lolz. So far the game is still in
beta.
I can see some of the characters (especially the recycled ones like LUCKY
CHLOE! and Gigas) needs work. They added moves from other characters
which
are completely useless in every way. They even said they added those move
so people have familiarity to older characters -_- 0 function. But
Capo-lite is so fun to play. The struggle makes it fun i guess lolz.

Overall, the direction T7 is going is pretty good. But just need to
release the rest of the cast and polish some of the "new"
characters...they
really feel unfinished somehow.

True, and in SFV's case they deviated a lot from their original
hype line of high damage/stun. Damage is on par with SFIV now, and
even
less in some cases.

But sometimes you can also be more-or-less aligned with the vision,
but not with the strategy to achieve the goals, or even the
implementation
of the strategy.

Simplified example:
Vision - Ono and Harada say they want more people to play fighting
games
Strategy - They're going to realise this vision by making the game
more accessible to newcomers *and* shorten the gap between beginners
and
veterans
Implementation - Lower execution barriers, and weaken tactics
beginners find hard to deal with (oki, strong normals, spacing, zoning
etc)

I completely agree with the vision. I want more people to play FGs.

I agree that games could be made more accessible. I don't agree in
shortening the gap between beginners and veterans.

I don't have a problem with lowering execution barriers if it
doesn't have a negative impact on gameplay (see Rising Thunder - 1
button
specials make cross-ups useless unless you attack during cooldown),
and I
don't agree that fundamental, tried-and-tested battle strategies
should be
weakened to accommodate new players. I mean, this is one of the
reasons I
play Fighting Games after all.

There are a number of things in a wide variety of fighting games
that l absolutely despise. Do l possess the necessary influence as an
avid,
experienced and long time fighting game player to force the
developer's
hand so that my specific criteria are met? Not really. If that truly
was
the case, many modern fighting games would most likely have turned
out very
differently. The reality of the matter is that the arcade scene and
mentality will not return. Those days are long gone and we have to
look to
the future, even if that future contains things that we can't make
sense
of; at least, not initially.

Returning to the subject of adaptation versus tolerance, if the
latter is one's immediate reaction to a particular game, it's safe to
say
that you'd know which decision to make. I personally wouldn't waste
my time
on a game that l know l'd only be able to tolerate.

I agree for the most part, but I think that sometimes adaptation
gets conflated with tolerance. For example, let's say there's a
game that
forces a neutral situation after every knockdown. Now on the one
hand,
it's bad for the attacker because they can't maintain pressure. On
the
other, the defender doesn't have to worry about having to guess on
wake
up. So it's an aspect of the game that can work for or against you.
The
problem is, I simply don't like this style of fighting game. It's
exactly
why I quit SFxT. There was rarely ever any tension during the match
because you could ukemi out of knockdowns, and once you did score a
knockdown, 80% of the time momentum was simply just reset. So for
me it
was never a case of adapting to ukemi in SFxT (you couldn't even
adapt to
it until v2012 where it became throw punishable), it was just a
question of
whether or not there was anything else in the game that made up for
it
being in the game in the first place.

A few years ago, when T6:BR was released, l hated it. It didn't
feel like the Tekken games l'd played in the past (T5:DR
specifically,
which is tied with the original Tekken Tag Tournament as one of my
all time
fave Tekken games). The emphasis was less on poke play and spacing,
with a
noticeable shift to string-based, 50/50-style gameplay. TTT2 was an
all-out
combo fest which barely resembled it's predecessor. It had slightly
improved movement, but it also had several glaring flaws.

I played both games for a long time. I wanted both games to be
something they weren't and would never be. Personally, l've made
peace with
the fact that newer fighting games will not emulate the gameplay
that vets
favour. You'll have to adapt to the new way of doing things.
Expecting
modern fighting games to be virtually identical to the games of
yore is
unrealistic and will only result in frustration.

When it comes to something like T7 or even SFV, l'd still be
happy to play both games if there is something to enjoy. If not, l
have so
many other fighting games to play that it wouldn't bother me in the
slightest if these games don't provide a satisfactory experience.
All l'm
saying is, l'm prepared to adapt to the new changes, for better or
for
worse. We live in an age where we aren't always going to get what
we want
as seasoned fighting game players. That's the reality.

dragunov's d2

Still need to get used to system changes. Getting up is VERY

In theory it should work like that but in practice it turns
that the shorter distances make certain things more risky because
of
factors like frame advantage and pushback. To put it in another
way,
suppose you have a sword and a knife. You obviously use the
knife for
short range combat, and the sword from further away. The sword
allows you
to play a distance game; knife allows you to attack quickly from
up close.
Now if you reduce the sword to just slightly longer than the
knife, you can
still do the same thing but now it becomes much more risky
because it
because easier for the opponent to counter-attack if they block.
So you
might as well just use the knife.

This is exactly what happened with Ryu's cr.mk and cr.mp in
SFV. cr.mk was his main poking tool. It had less frame
advantage than cr.mp, but it was very good at controlling
space. Now that cr.mp and cr.mk have the same range, there's
no reason to use cr.mk anymore, especially since it's
negative on block.

You are used to your old range so it feels odd and you need

The new characters dont have any existing stuff that people

new?

Just speculation.

I see. I wonder if these changes were intentional or a

The biggest issue is when i want to use a move at max range

superior advantage...but then...it wiffs...thank you harada lolz

I generally... don't. It's like you said, in situations
where certain and actions and strategies become really risky
then defense
becomes more important. I wonder if game developers actually
realise this.

SFV has this same issue. It seems to me that Namco and
Capcom want to make games where reading the opponent plays a
bigger role
than before. In the past, top players would just stomp on
everyone else
because they had superior movement, spacing and command of their
characters' toolsets. In SFV and in Tekken, toolsets and basic
movement
are nerfed, and spacing cannot be used as effectively to control
the
opponent because of the lower pushback. This shortens the gap
between top
and lower levels, but also leads to high risk/high reward play,
or
situations where neither player is a willing to commit to a move.

Walking speed in T7 is throwing me (espcially with dragunov's

because is
generic d4 wiffed after fff3 on block...). And to dash up and do
the same

defensive
player. I remember Salie mentioning about the nerfed push back
on block
moves.

How do you guys deal with this in SF or other 2D fighter
games (with out the use of projectiles...since T7 doesn't have
projectiles.
So their footsies is a bit different?)

The 2 new ORIGINAL characters (Katarina and Claudio) doesn't
have this issue for some odd reason. Their range is insane. The
recycled
"new" characters like Josie, Gigas, Lucky Chloe and even Shaheen
in certain
situations seem to have range issue.

It seems like the game favors the person holding back even
more so now. Which is perfect for me lolz
