Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

Transition only allows circling type movement horizontally or towards the enemy. You can watari dash normally by pushing dash button again but angles are more limited than VOOT. To get around all this on the ground, cancel dash with melee button and instantly dash in another direction. Most VR have ...

Re: A Certain Magical Virtual-On

Some notes from trying stuff out in the demo. I'll try to edit this instead of posting more. Cypher Can switch to transition slide after first air dash attack, making air dash attacks fairly free to use similar to transition attack. However you cant do anything until transition hits the ground, tran...

Re: Any suggestion to punish the coward type players?

1: Be super patient and dont let them get a health lead or annoy you with their tactics. So accept that you can't rushdown every player or play better keepaway yourself. 2: try a character / playstyle that's good against cowardly play Bal-Bados: Has extremely good ability to hit people and with expe...

Re: The official Virtual-On model kit thread

Haha that's so weird to see again. Curious that they chose Wind type for the pictures, the gameplay model in VO4 corresponds to Wind but some victory animations glitch out as if it were Fire (single katana). Second wind should be Old Wind so it's just all the katana types. I wonder if SEGA even gave...

Re: A Certain Magical Index x Virtual-On Crossover Novel

Raiden confirmed to have been designed for cheerleaders. That Cypher looks silly. Interesting that everything is based on oratan designs even though katoki worked on VO4/marz too and they liked to promote temjin 747 a lot.

Re: 3/26 (3/27 in Japan) International Tower Challenge

I should be able to make it & record. I think we should all use our main VRs instead of whatever arbitrary limitations or we'd be holding back against the opponent. There's a good chance some of the challengers can beat the tower why not go all out. Judging from the response to the team battle b...

Re: Team Battle or Tower Challenge

The multiple VR rule saved the event and I think we should continue it. I'm still not a fan of this rule since it's unfair for Shamanic, FlyExponent, PPX, etc. Forcing multiple VR makes for a entertaining event but not really for serious team tourney. I guess it's fine for these more casual battles...

Re: Team Battle or Tower Challenge

Teams don't have to be the same size, especially for this first battle. Schooly's team is the clear favorite regardless. If we don't allow multiple VRs, all teams will consist of only the same 4 VRs used in Schooly's winter tournament. Also, it will be pointless to even have a team battle, because ...

Re: Team Battle or Tower Challenge

If people can register as multiple VR how can you guarantee the teams will be of same size. This also penalizes people who have only concentrated on learning one VR, which is very stupid IMO. I'd just recommend making the rules together from scratch with Schooly. That way both teams are on equal foo...

Re: Tournament ideas going forward

I agree with all your ideas here, good stuff. And great work on winter classic. I still think all matches should be recorded at some treshold (like top 8) regardless if a person thinks they're boring. For example PPX vs Porcupine on winter classic was not broadcasted by anyone. Sometimes you can bar...

Re: Team Battle or Tower Challenge

I'd join both events but more interested in the Tower Challenge. Maybe it could be arranged via Soyoka or other people we know. I think fighting the japanese players more often will improve all of our skill much faster than staying in our small group. The game has been out on XBLA for over 6 years, ...

Re: 1st Annual Oratan.com Winter Classic

Oh yeah, what happens if there is a super laggy match, like where the frame rate gets all jerky? Or even worse, a disconnect. I suspect this will happen sometime during the tournament. Zaarock suggested long ago that when this happens you have to flip a coin or forfeit. I suggested we just have to ...
