Evo 2024 Registration Numbers

>Dead last
>Lost to a 20+ year old game, the worst competitive Mortal Kombat, and UNI, the most niche of niche franchises
How do SNK fans cope with this? Like at some point the disappointment and acceptance of their state and future has to sink in.

      I think SNK fans are just happy to still exist, after death, and korean death, and what are we at now? The fricking house of Saud rebirth?

      Not true, but KOF was probably peak in 1998, which is well before most anons here were born.

      I don't have any dog in this race, but who gives a shit about registration numbers for fighting games? Smash has more players than all these games combined, that doesn't make it better... who gives a shit?
      If it's a business thing like "oh if there's no enough players they won't support the game anymore!!" again who gives a frick, street fighter 2 is still the best fighting game and it hasn't changed in decades.
      You have a mega tournament for this extremely niche genre with EIGHT fricking games at once, the sky is not falling if some of them don't have that many players man

      It's a very firm, hard to fake, doesn't include fricking casuals number. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.

I've never seen a single Neo Geo console and I don't know anyone who's ever owned one I've only seen youtube collectors with those frickin things.

Arcsys are like 50x more popular than they are now when they were once below them.

      SNK has been moronic for forever they’re just now climbing out of that brain slime. They could never effectively iterate on the Neo Geo hardware, hyper Neo geo 64 was a disaster, the Neo geo world theme parks were a disaster, NGPC wasn’t bad but too little too late, once they did transition to 3d they just had too much debt and mismanagement and then once the saudis came around and bailed them out they finally started to get their head out of their ass but they’re really climbing out of years of irrelevance outside of boomers emulating Neo geo games for years. Keep in mind this entire difficult history Capcom was releasing shit like resident evil lol. Yeah Capcom is in a high period relative to previous years but they were never anywhere near as in the dumps as SNK was. I genuinely think ArcSys not having all the historical baggage SNK did and carving out the weeb Black person niche quite well helped them. I think they’ve earned the success even if you disagree with their direction their newer games are going.

      They started in Japan in the frickng NES days, with some Sega people. Even back then they seemed to have two objectives. Make cheap, quality games that make money when times are bad to keep the lights on. Be Anime as FRICK.

      Take a look at this shit.

      And this shit, their first fighting game.

      So, they aren't too proud to turn their nose up at a half dozen cheap wii games, or whatever cheap ports it takes to keep their people employed, and when they DO get a licence, they'l put actual fans of the property on it. They can't guarantee success or even quality, but passion matters.

      They've always been much bigger in Japan, in fact they were french bread's publisher.

      SNK on the other hand, is one of the oldest video game companies, but they've always been kind of erratic. The've had gigantic surges and then gigantic collapses.

      They pivoted. Xrd doing 2D sprite-work but in 3D made them WAY ahead of transitioners like Capcom and SNK.

      SNK is doing PS2 era models on the goddamn Unreal engine. How the FRICK have they not talked to someone at Arc to copy their tech?

        and kofxii was made in a way that was like the old southern saying, going around your ass to get to your elbow

      Xrd graphics tech got them the rep while everyone else struggled massively with the transition to 3D, and then they got to make a Dragonball tag fighter in the same year MVC Infinite shat the bed. Compared to everything else, those are by far the most significant factors.

      Since then, they've been making a couple blunders but nothing huge. I'm not a huge fan of Strive but I have to admit the company is handling itself pretty well. There's a lot of legitimate complaints to make about their recent games but they're still making good decisions earlier than most of their competition, I think they earned their success. They were the first "mainstream" japanese dev to put (good) rollback in their games, they pivoted to DLC seasons with regular content release hype injections just in time to benefit from fgc cultural shifts towards youtube reaction videos and twitter takes, they started bribing casual Vtubers and shit to play their games before Capcom did, they aren't afraid to compete with themselves by releasing another game like with DNF Duel and GBVSR and shit which increases awareness of their brand massively even if the individual games don't stay popular for long, and are actually capable(and always have been) of supporting both a main game and working on side projects with collaborators without either of them falling into indefinite delays. They even let the fans officially add rollback to their old games and help host major tournaments and stuff which is great positive press and keeps a bit of the "hardcore anime game" image they used to have, that people think is cool but most won't actually play, alive. People seeing Xrd and +r looking really cool but don't want to spend a month learning them so they pick up Strive instead, or they get into DNF:D because they played the mmo, then it dies but they had fun so they buy Strive etc.

      tl;dr: they're actually making things and not fricking them up too badly, no one else can do that right now for some reason

        Arcsys in the 10's was a ERA with blazblue and persona, they carried everything of their flop with xrd, Mori and atlus helped in its Success, without them, it couldn't exist as it's today, with granblue and DBFZ were just a lucrative contract with the graphics, they're pioneers in that department. Now they lost their ambition and the thing they made different, and they shall be relegated to art/graphic department forever because it's the only thing they can make good, nothing else. DNF Duel is a success about profit.

          Xrd Sign sold well and got a lot of attention for how good it looked, it was the later revisions that underperformed. I would guess Blazblue followed the same trajectory, the early games sold a shitload and the later revisions significantly less, them stopping making dubs kind of indicates that, though it started a lot more popular than GG ever was back in the day so probably didn't fall as far ultimately.
          DBFZ is most of why they're a big three player in the industry now regardless of how you feel about the games, without those frankly extremely lucky circumstances(and covid making investing in rollback pay off better than anyone imagined) Strive probably wouldn't have sold even half as well

      French Bread is Aquapazza tier more than they are on Arcsys timing.
      They've been making professional games for a long time, a far cry from distributing CDs at a doujin convention. There's a reason French Bread doesn't self publish games and had to rely on ArcSys, Sega and Type-Moon.
      BlazBlue was also THE MOST POPULAR FIGHTING GAME IN JAPAN for YEARS aside from Gundam Vs, even ousting Virtua Fighter from its throne.

      In fairness Rock was a solid mid tier in CvS2, a Capcom game. That's also where I first played Rock as an impressionable teen.
      And for all the comparisons there are between MotW and 3rd Strike, I think they're both eye candy but play like ass in the grand scheme. 3S just ended up more popular and memeable.

        In recent times even Yun has been degraded to a lower tier. Chun and Ken are S+ tier and everyone else is LARP-tier of a "gentlemen's agreement" to not play the game at the highest possible level. This actually goes as far as tournament finals so you can't take those for counter-evidence. But at the Evo main stage level all bets and frauding will be off.

                Only because you're unfamiliar with the 3S community and its history. I'm not moronic, the players are who kid themselves into thinking the game is less broken than it really is. The players have an unspoken agreement to value mastering a mid or lower tier character over actually winning a tournament.

                I dunno why that guy is arguing with you, the biggest hype 3S gets, aside from #37, is from Coop Cup where the non-top tiers get a moment in the sun. Anything can happen in 3 rounds, but the top tiers are just too reliable in longer sets.

    Let's be real. Will the new Fatal Fury do anything for SNK? For me, I think it's too late. KOF 15 was their last real chance, and Arc Sys already took it. There's a lot of FGs out now and the 2 big guys of the genre, Street Fighter and Tekken, have released their new big games. There's nothing SNK can nor will do to appeal to people that everyone else and most especially the big two haven't already done.

    I think COTW will automatically do better than KOF 15 just by being 1v1 and being easier than KOF, but it won't be by much. And no, having good gameplay won't matter/isn't relevant, because if it was Strive and SF6 wouldn't be the most popular right now. COTW is also a little too much like SF6 in gameplay mechanics, and they're even aping stuff like "modern controls" which I think will hurt it more than it will help by making people look at it as a cheap Street Fighter copy. Which Fatal Fury already kinda was not Street Fighter, but only really so since MOTW.

      i think if snk had smart/creative designers, they'd at least be able to hook peoples' eyes by the way of a really catchy design, and preecha ain't it brother
      but snk is not that smart or creative so i think it'll be a decent game and it looks okay, definitely way less offensive than kofxv to my eyes, it's just i agree with you in that it won't do a lot for the price of tea in china or for snk

      snk, they are kind of like that guy who has to follow up his team mate in the final round of family feud who already answered the most popular answers for each survey category

      It's not like it's truly dead, dead yet although I can't really give you false hope and say it's getting better either. Enjoy it while you still can, game is still alive and there's still the slim chance of getting a season.
      If it dies you can always just play either '02 or '98 which somehow still have massive followings on fightcade

    NTA but it's true that no one in the 3S community gives a shit about someone who wins a tournament with any of the big 3. The most hype matches take place in the semis. Getting to losers final with Makoto/Q/Hugo is more impressive than winning the whole thing with Chun/Ken/Yun.

          In granblue low profile is effectively just a really long dodge roll. for almost the entire cast the only option to beat low profile is doing a 2M. A couple characters have moves that beat it like Anila's sheep which run along the ground.

          Everyone else is unable to play neutral at all against her because if they push any standing button she can just slide under it. The slide is also a low, plus on block, combo on counterhit, with a hitbox that makes it so you cannot low crush it because low crush has no invincibility they are always designed to just hop over low attacks There is only a single standing normal in the game that beats her slide and it belongs to Bea.

          The only other character in the game with a low profile move like Bea is Yuel who has one that is 43 frames of startup and -7 if it gets blocked. Bea's slowest version is half that startup and +2.

          If your move doesn't have the grounded property then she goes through it. Hitboxes dont matter at all.

          Outside of 2M and 2U maybe 15% of the roster has a move with that property.

              Half of Bea's shit feels like it's bugged. She has the only standing normal in the entire game that beats low profile. So she is the only character that can actually play neutral against herself.

              She has multiple moves that hit behind her for no reason so you can't even cross her up.

      I love DFO and fighting games but playing against Striker (during the guard break era) and Berserker made me hate that game and Nexon. I actually think a sequel would do well but only if they revamped everything. The game needs to be more complex with shorter combos and lower damage. That or give it 20 new characters and make it a tag fighter.

The funniest thing in this image is mk being so damn low. Its an actual joke, it has an incredibly huge budget, and every normie hypes it up but when you want to compare numbers on steam charts they are always dead last. Game is complete ass.

    But to answer your question america does not play kof, if a majority of players outside of america traveled the game would most likely be within top 4 to 5 most entrants.
