Iorilamia Wins MVC3 Tournament and a booming Maui Fightscene

By: iorilamia Jun 17, 2011 | 10 Comments

The fighting game Community in Maui has exploded in the last couple of months due to one random idea. (Finals match link inside!)

For a long time me, my friend Eli and Dwyane thought we were the best on Maui when it came to majority of fighting games out there (except Tekken). So a couple of months ago while at my house Eli was like " Yo, let's make an event on Facebook, a SSF4 and MVC3 tournament at the college and see who will come" I thought it was an amazing idea and we went on with it. Me and 2 other friends brought a system and our games. The Maui College has a huge student lounge that is open almost the whole day that anyone an go to, and we were surprised by all the people who showed up. Learning that there were people as good as us in some games and better in others was amazing. That day we didn't get around to a tournament, I believe there was like 8 hours of casuals, leading to us becoming good friends with a lot of the guys who stayed until closing.

Soon after one of the guys we met created a group of Facebook called Maui Street Fighter. Here we planned the next events and settled that we would meet up every Wednesday for SSF4 tournaments and mvc3 casuals (not too many people played mvc3, so a small tourney would be lame) Every Wednesday the amount of people grew and everyone's skill levels increased.

Things have gotten to a point where we had a good idea on who was bringing what set-ups and we could run our events at the school easily. The lounge is open from about 8 am to 9 pm. The security guards have gotten used to seeing around 30 dudes getting super hyped over games, so sometimes they let us stay till 11 to finish our events <3

A big surprise about a week ago was a huge influx in new people! The best part was, they were Marvel and Tekken players. This led up to us having 3 actual tournaments in a night (which is hard to fit in when you do them one by one). Tekken was singles (since it had the smallest entrants), Marvel was teams of 2 and SSF4 AE was teams of 3.

I love playing MVC3 casuals and felt pretty confident in the tournament. I didn't play Tekken and my SSF4 team got OCV'd by my close friend who plays me all the time; knew it was coming :p My teamate for Marvel was Adi, a guy who I felt pretty even with in skill leading up to more confidence (he played Wolverine, She-Hulk Storm and Wesker). He went first, beating the first few teams by himself and I didn't have to play. But when it came to the semi-finals and finals, he lost every set and I carried the way (which added more pressure than I thought it would). 

In the end, it came down to me playing Morrigan, X-23 and Wesker vs. a really strong Hulk-She-Hulk and Dormmamu. (Before that I played his teamate in a very interesting battle with me playing Mageto, x-23 and Wesker and him playing Magneto, X-23 Dommamu)  Both of us were dropping combos towards the end and I purposely didn't punish some things because I knew if I messed up one bit, I would have died ; ended up playing it safe. The photographer was nice enough to upload a video of the final match, but it is only on Facebook, I'm not sure if you will be able to view it upon signing in (I HOPE SO! IT'S GODLIKE) If anything, I'll share it on the Gouki.com wall.

So Adi and I won! Split the prize $ and took a bro-photo. It was truly a great tournament and a great experience. Glare makes me look cross-eyed but that's ok. Everyone attending the Maui College fighting events are awesome people and it is great that our community has grown so much from a friend saying " Brah let's make a event on Facebook". It's so hype having over 30 people in a room with many different play-styles and skills. Hopefully I can get more pictures from the guy or videos.

 

~Shout-outs to Gouki.com, Adi and I played on the MVC3 stick the entire time~

Are epic comeback factors in fighting games a good thing?

By: iorilamia May 24, 2011 | 11 Comments

Some of the top fighting games have gone into a trend of having crazy comeback mechanics. This goes beyond your regular super move. Ultras, Red-Mode,Critical Counter and the controversial X-Factor have been relatively new. Are they good to have?

Fighting games takes lots of skill, dexterity and focus. Always generating lots of hype, fighting games are one of the most competitive genre of gaming. But what creates even more excitement are comebacks. Being almost dead and doing a epic combo or seemingly reading what your opponent will do and block/ counter attack to victory displays lots of skill or possibly luck. Comeback mechanics have been in fighting games forever but in the recent years with SF4, MvC3, Tekken 6 and KOF12 we have been exposed to some very interesting comeback factors that do require skill (some more than others) and have changed the outcome on many tournaments and casual play unexpectedly. Some of these mechanics seem reasonable, but a few may need to be altered a little. Here is what I think of them:

The Ultra in the SF4 series is first on our list. A bar builds up depending on how much damage you take. The more you get beat up, the better chance you have of making a comeback. Now people have lost to "random" ultras before but many of them have creative ways to combo-into, making it a skill to see which ways you can open up your opponent. Now I started the sf series in super, and when I was a scrub Ultras were depressing. Having half health when opponent is basically done, then getting hit by Ultra combo and dying was a bit rough at first. The beauty with SF4 is that once you learn or get a feel for other characters combos and setups, the ultra isn't that scary. You just have to know what to look for, and what you should and shouldn't not be doing to not get caught. In the end the Ultra system seems fine. every character has their own to choose from and advantages/ disadvantages. Not al Ultras are safe and using them wrong can still get you killed. I've grown to respect and like this mechanic a lot, it adds much depth into gameplay.

Tekken 6 brings in a new system called Rage Mode, a.k.a "Red -Mode" When you are near death, (about 10% life or so), a red aura surrounds you (like in Bob's shoryuken above). This aura is continuous until you die. This increases the damage of every move you do and reduces damage scaling as well. I am new to Tekken (as in button mashed when I was 10, trying to play it seriously now) and Red Mode doesn't seem too bad. Tekken has lots of 40-60% combos, and after that ground hits and so on. That being said, when someone has about 30-40% life left, they may not even get to use Rage Mode because that combo will kill them. I haven't experienced or seen many comebacks with this but it surely is possible. As I mentioned, the combos are extremely damaging, meaning the person in Red Mode can make a comeback in one or two solid combos. Red-Mode doesn't change combos or what you can do or cannot do like comeback factors in other games, but it does bring fear into the opponent if they guess wrong. I don't think this needs any changing, it seems to fit Tekken 6 well.

The Critical Counter in KOF12 is something  I had many mixed feelings about. As you fight in KOF12 a green meter near your health bear is built from attacking and receiving attacks (like the super bar, but doesn't build as easily). Once the bar is maxed you are able to perform a Critical Counter. Basically if you ever counter someone with a strong punch/ kick while the bar is full, a huge circle appears and the game crazily zooms in ; like the picture above. For those of you familiar with CVS, you basically go into A-groove until the green bar runs out. You get to string together many moves and combos that were not possible before and insane corner juggles. Now these big combos for the most part do require skill, but that isn't my problem. The problem is that this is activated merely by countering someone's punch with yours. Of course there are tactics behind it, but for the most part this Critical Counter mode happens on accident way too easily. Changing the tides of battle with insane custom- combos is cool and the system provides much flashy-ness, but the accidental part is a bit lame. Also if you do a super during Critical Counter, there are crazy flashy effects and it does bonus damage. Using them together in a combo kind of reminds me of characters who can Super into Ultra in the SF4 series. Unfortunately due to this game sucking it didn't get much attention from the professional fighting game community, but even in casual these Critical Counters brought much excitement.

The X-Factor in MvC3 has sparked lots of controversy. Many people hate it and want it removed, some just want it tuned down and others want it to stay. X-Factor boosts your damage and for most characters , your speed and allows you to not take block damage. At first it doesn't sound too bad, sounds like a basic comeback factor. Well in MvC3 without X-factor you can already easily do 50-100% combos a  long with infinites. The x-factor boost makes damage completely overkill, and fast characters insane. Because of the speed boosts, many characters who don't have an infinite, have one in X-factor (like X-23 and Deadpool). X-factor does have layers to it. The less characters you have left alive, the stronger it gets. This of has created some of the largest upsets and insane comebacks. Personally I like X-factor. It makes the already intense and fast paced game even more so. I don't think X-factor itself needs to be tuned down, but certain characters in it. Because not every ones damage and speed are effected the same and some characters damage output goes way beyond others. In the end that doesn't matter so much because regardless, you should be able to kill anyone with X-Factor. what I do wish is that they had a function to turn off X-Factor, that would be a bit fun from time to time. Also What I don't fully agree with in X-factor is the chip damage. So many occasions where even I have won, or an opponent because one had X-factor, and a beam super could take out quarter health people with a few super bars (even with Advancing Guard). At times that feels a bit cheap, certain HIGH damage supers in x-factor should be tuned down a tiny bit upon block. Especially when a a low health character comes in, and someone supers before they hit the ground, not letting them activate x-factor and forcing chip damage ;)

 

Well that is my personal opinion on some of these comeback tools in recent big fighting games. At first many of them feel a bit sketchy but overtime it is understandable why the developers made it the way it is while others...are not so good. I would love to hear what you guys think about some of these. Agree or disagree? What would you alter or completely take out? Leave a comment with your opinions.
