          Big difference from the people that actually go to locals and the online GGgays that wouldn't shut the frick up about it. Especially during the days when BB was active and bringing up that game had a 50% chance of some GG entering to derail the thread with franchise wars.

              Lumina has a lot of issues stemming from its roster being limited by Type-Moon, their focus on Shield which they are still rectifying every patch, Moon Drive being both another resource and stop time mechanic in a genre that is relying too much on them and the lack of verticality due to the transition to widescreens. A lot of people also dropped it early on due to the aforementioned strength of shield RPS, bad PC port (and again with UNI2... jesus, you'd think Type-Moon and Arcsys would hire better porters) and uninteresting combo routing which they've also been improving but IMO that's never been the focus of the series.
              The fact TL still has some good will left is off the strength of its movement and remnants of its brand of Melty offense.
              It took 6 years to go from Melty Blood to Actress Again and another 2 years to get Current Code. Type Lumina is turning 3 this year and I can only hope that Red Garden is released sooner than later so all the characters people actually want to play aren't held hostage because it's definitely not going to get a third wind after that.

              They've just outright banned two characters at this point which helps but even mid-tiers have 9-1s against other mid-tiers. You play a JoJo fighter for stupidly fun bullshit and the aesthetic, not balance, and that goes for ASBR too.
              >3S
              Honestly you wouldn't even need to ban full characters if you wanted to force more variety, just like three or so SAs (Chun SA2, Ken SA2, Yun SA3, maybe Makoto SA2). Aegis can stay because it's insanely execution-heavy and Urien players would kill you in real life if you banned it.

                Makoto SA2 is the only relatively consistent ToD enabler in the game. In a meta without SA2 Chun/SA3 Ken/Geneijin I imagine a lot of people would flock to it. Makoto SA1 accomplishes much of the same without being quite so insane and as far as Third Strike installs go there's worse than Makoto SA3.

              I'd argue some wack systems do more damage to old fighters than character balance. Darkstalkers looks fricking awesome and I enjoy mashing buttons in it, but then I see the pushblock system or I get hit by Zebel's unblockable guard cancel setup and I just nope out
              "Fixing" these things is tricky too because one man's horrible exploit is another's game-defining loveable jank, if you touch the wrong thing it could be like taking wavedashing out of Melee and you'd ruin the appeal of it for a lot of people

                I wonder where the line crosses from funny jank to just bullshit. Because you get stuff like HnK which is the epitome of bullshit, but it still has somewhat of a following. It's seen as ridiculous, but endearing. But DnF Duel got dropped like a rock and no one cares about it anymore.

      GG never had a community. It had the anime FGC that wanted to play it and a thousand-and-one orbiters that enjoy the characters on a thematic level but refuse to learn the game. The webm of Max getting gaped by Hotashi is the best example of this.

      The queer fanbase that took over is just a natural extension of what's happening to anime/nerd culture in general. The main issue is GG never had a large, permanent fanbase that dilutes the gay stuff.

      More like it hardly ever existed, especially in this place where everyone pretends to play games.
      What's worse is that despite both +R and Xrd getting rollback in the recent years, the current community is so terrible they killed any chance of either of those games getting a real community that isn't a bunch of yesmen and maybe a couple of american oldies that have to play troony minefield to avoid getting cancelled and permabanned out of anything, which means they don't even participate all that much in the actual community or stick to their small inner circles.

      How can you even build an actual community when you've got to live through a constant witch hunt that legitimates and coddles the mentally ill (who more often than not don't even play) while actual players get crucified the moment they dare to step in and complain, or even simple point out falsehoods?
      Is it really a surprise that even in current tournaments like Frosty Faustings we're seeing the same exact faces we've been seeing for two decades, sometimes with a pronoun change?

          It's no big news, anyone inside the "community" knew for years since the discord started permabanning anyone who doesn't conform to the tyranny around four-three years ago or so.
          I still remember when they permabanned Nouk after he told one of those screeching trannies that he was mentally unwell during one of the usual meltdowns.
          Worst thing is the fake buddy-buddy atmosphere where everyone is clearly walking on eggshells, and when people fight the actual good players who've been banned for the aforementioned stuff and ask about why they're not part of the "community" everyone has to engage in the usual mental gymnastics to explain them what happened, it's really pitiful especially for the people who clearly think it's bullshit but they're legitimately and somewhat understandably afraid of getting cancelled by the troony mobs.

    It's an easy game. It's easy to learn for a fighting game and a lot of people aren't filtered by the gameplay. Skullgirls from what I know is difficult so it never reached the mind blowing popularity of Strive.

    It's anime but not "too anime" like Melty Blood. It's well known that while troons gravitate to just about anything they like anime a lot on the surface level. However, they are turned off by melty, 1 because of it's gameplay (see point 2) but 2 they don't want to be seen as """""Those anime fans with 'body pillow' and 'le 1000 year old e-girl fetish'""""" and they see someone talk about DA Noel on their Twitter and it closes the door to that.

    The big thing though is that it came out at the perfect time. Take this with a grain of salt because I'm not super into SF but I heard people hated launch SFV. Then a new fighting game with cool designs, excellent graphics, easy gameplay and above all else rollback meant it exploded in popularity. I fully believe any game with rollback from Arcsys that released around that time would've gotten big too. Then we have the Testament and Bridget stuff and things got worse than they already were and now we're here

    Honestly they're arguably among the most cancerous fanbases in the FGC. Even if you went there for an entirely different game you would go and show support to some of the other games happening in the venue. Guilty Gear 'fans' don't do that. Once their game is over they all bail and don't even attempt to support any other community even if their own kind is participating.

    There's something different about Strive. I don't really know how to articulate it because I didn't spend a lot of time with it, but I really did not like it. I broadly enjoy 2D fighters, Vs Capcom, KoF, other ArcSys fighters like FighterZ, I even had a decent amount of fun with Xrd, but Strive just sucks somehow. I know there's something different about it too because it reached out to a whole new audience, even before Bridget was added. Why don't I like Strive/what drew everyone to Strive specifically?

      Strive feels like a game made precisely to address complaints about anime fighters in the laziest way possible. People complain about long combos? Combos are short, but do an ass ton of damage. People complain about getting cornered to death? Wall break. People complain about air dashes and how they want grounded neutral and footsies and all that? Air dash gets nerfed into the ground so anyone can react to it. It's basically an anime fighter for people who don't like anime fighters.

              burst in strive even before the change was literally the strongest it had ever been, only 2 jump cancellable buttons across the cast made it next to impossible to safely bait it without meter, and not to mention the fact that it knocked down which is still completely moronic.
              making it hit full screen on top of all that was stupid and lazy no ifs ands or buts.

              Anonymous

              It's more about the principle than anything, that they feel like they need to guarantee burst works in every scenario just to make sure it gets you out of combos. I'm not saying they didn't frick up with those characters, but that their solution is inelegant and messy. What's next, burst now guard breaks to make sure that burst baiting isn't a thing at all, or has insane pushback to guarantee a return to neutral?

                Anonymous

                you said it yourself that burst bait is still a thing and people at high level still fall for it and it's a guaranteed death sentence. For a game this explosive i don't mind burst being this strong. Also you can burst steal with wa to lock a combo. I don't think there was any other solution. Nago, ram and hc where inherently burst safe due to their long hitboxes distancing them from the opponent during combos. How would have you solved it?

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Solving it would require a lot of changes to the game itself, mainly because of how the game and some of the characters are designed. I don't disagree it was probably the best solution for them with their limited time rather than completely redesigning a single game, but rather that this way of thinking led to the mess they got themselves into in the first place.

      I will. I really like SNK but I've always bounced off of KOF specifically in spite of its strong roster of characters, I've always enjoyed basically every other fighting game series they made outside of it more. SamSho is the best game of the modern SNK era and CotW looks primed to top it.

        Arguable other than rollback. GBVS was really grounded and very fundamental, same traits people liked about SS. Rising adds universal powercreep and mobilitycreep on top of that and is very unbalanced.

          Anonymous

          I found GBVS very restrictive in a way even most SFs aren't while people were calling it anime SF (which is funny when Alpha 3 is basically anime SF). The final update giving you something to spend meter on besides super was nice but felt like a cobbled-together bandage over it, plus it was about as basic as it gets (Drive Rush but it's the same normal every time, V-Shift, X-Factor). Rising at least added a modicum of creativity and bothered to try the F2P w/ Rotating Characters approach again after KI'13 but I agree it's not MUCH better and more unbalanced.

          But when I say I don't like Granblue but had my fun with DNF in spite of its hamfisted design people think I'm crazy.

      It’s funny because you act like Slayer is supposed to be some big gotcha for, “W-w-wait guys! We still cater to normal, straight people too!” But not only did they neuter him like all the others, they picked NOW of all times to bring back the punches-out-of-his-clothes gimmick for the homos and the fujos to cream over, and with a buffer body no less.

      Plus his wife was never a significant element of his character before. She was there for him to drink from and essentially be a trophy. Making her be an active presence to “cheer him on” undermines your argument because they’re clearly trying not to make her seem like a piece of meat and Slayer like a womanizer. I.E. they thought her previous depiction was too sexist and needed correcting.

                Tis a mystery to be sure. Real talk though Akuma is the level of edgy that doesn’t feel embarrassing and transcends even into other company’s series and still be endearing. He bears no grudges, has no dark past, nor has a convoluted set of goals brought on by past traumas. Akuma is who he is because he chose to be that way. He trains to better his power and cares for nothing else other than fighting somebody of a mutual understanding. It’s a simple, easy to understand goal that makes him endearing because Akuma isn’t evil, he’s just bettering himself in a way he believes is right.

        That's more due to the ranking system where anybody that knows five good buttons will hit Plat 1 in a day and from Plat to Master you still gain more from wins than you lose from losses. Strive's floor system not only uses its awful lobby system but Floor 10 is basically the same as Plat 1 and Celestial is shoving all of Plat 2 through Legend into one group.

Johnny flirts with every other woman in the cast. ABA fights with her key boyfriend. Millia and Zato have always had a thing going. Ram and Gio have a crush on Leo. Baiken and Anji have a bit of a relationship going too. Elphelt was going after Nagoriyuki in her arcade mode, although she basically goes after anything with a pulse. Ky is still with Dizzy. And yeah, Slayer with Sharon.

      It’s funny because you act like Slayer is supposed to be some big gotcha for, “W-w-wait guys! We still cater to normal, straight people too!” But not only did they neuter him like all the others, they picked NOW of all times to bring back the punches-out-of-his-clothes gimmick for the homos and the fujos to cream over, and with a buffer body no less.

      Plus his wife was never a significant element of his character before. She was there for him to drink from and essentially be a trophy. Making her be an active presence to “cheer him on” undermines your argument because they’re clearly trying not to make her seem like a piece of meat and Slayer like a womanizer. I.E. they thought her previous depiction was too sexist and needed correcting.

            GG actually had an insane number of secondaries relative to its actual success pre-Strive on the back of Daisuke's unique aesthetics. Strive becoming more accessible created a flood of people who've had a surface level knowledge of GG for over a decade thinking they know what they're talking about.

            Now, I'm not going to be a poser either, I'm willing to admit I played a little #Reload and Xrd Sign in college before getting proper into +R when the rollback patch came in, while having known about XX's sprites and OST since middle school, but I'll fully admit that and not pretend like I've been a hardcore fan my whole life.

            GG is like touhou in the sense that things secondary to gameplay like exxceptionally good music and lore are really attractive to secondaries. Also some kind of mystique was formed regarding GG related to the game's general difficulty (weights, variable wake up timings, hard combos, frame perfect roman cancels, etc.) so if you said you were a GG player people would go "wow!"

              You guys have a point but thats the nature of the beast with the FGC. Even more tragic because its so fkn wrong. +R and Xrd most certainly are god damn complex but theres barely any proper FG that doesnt have a moonhigh skill ceiling, no matter the floor. Hell, I have mad respect for actual ActressAgain cracks because that bs requires insanely reliable inputs yet the game itself features less layers of bs than the GGs do. But in the end, a strong funda player with good grasps on footsies and blocks is still respectable in any game whatsoever and only surface level players wouldnt acknowledge this being a based as frick skillset.

              Im all about overly complex airdashers but I have just the same respect for someone who truly mastered SF2. And I just assume that mindset is shared by most dedicated FG players all around. Its just, the FGC consists of mostly people not really dedicated to anything besides their ego.

      The thing I hate most about Bridget being added to Strive is how they massacred his/her/its kit. In +R, you can play the yoyo in like eight different directions that all move with different properties, and you can do four different attacks from the yoyo, PLUS rolling movement. In Strive, it's only two directions, NO Roger attacks, and rolling movement, which is basically fricking meaningless since Strive doesn't have the crazy aerial gameplay +R did. Literally the only redeeming quality is the design, which I honestly think is better and cuter than the old one. Like, why the frick is it a nun habit, anyway? Oh, and I guess the grab is pretty good. Still, god, what a fricking downgrade. Every time I see someone get hyped for a new character coming back in Strive, or they want their favorite one added in, I just think about how fricking stupid they sound. They're basically saying "please, Daisuke, destroy my fricking character." Like, god, I'm scared to see what they did to Johnny or Slayer or ABA.

    Bad games attract bad players who are more likely to be bad people. Shitty game mechanics filters out discerning players and leaves out the low brow gorilla mash audience who just want to press buttons and win, and have the personality to match that.

      Neutral is overemphasized outside of matchups where zoning is a viable strategy and even then often romanticized as the end-all-be-all of fighting game design and decision making, but it's still important. The biggest meme is people thinking neutral being over quickly means it didn't exist; Marvel 3 for example has an incredibly nuanced neutral game, it's just usually all over within a couple seconds most rounds and only reset on a successful read on incoming.

    Has the rollback netcode meme subsided at all among westoids yet? As in they think it really fixes anything beyond giving you an extra 20ms or so of ping before the game is not worth playing relative to delay based

                I absolutely get that man but I legit barely ever saw anyone not agreeing on rollies being a basic improvement. However, what I did see on a daily basis was people claiming absolutely unreasonable stuff about rollback now magically making 3f input fighters viable over long distances. This is the origin of "rollback is a meme". Its not about not being glad you got rollback finna, its about just accepting things for what they are.

                My favorite example is "ye but now you dont drop the gombo anymore". Well just as well might because instead of your input being eaten (which can still happen in shitty rollback anyways) but for the confirm to end up different than expected because you miscalculated/misjudged the momentum.

                Im 100% with you. Its an improvement and I dont want to go back to delay. Its just not the reincarnation of Jesus.

        Theres good rollback, theres bad rollback and there are games that simply arent playable over a distance of half the fricking globe no matter the netcode.

        Rollback is a fricking meme because people claim it makes playing from EU to SEA fun. It does not and no netcode ever will. Yes you can mash with a buddy from Timbuktu but you sure as hell wont develope a great gameflow there. At those distances, analysing the screen is naught and the match revolves around 100% RPS.

    I got bored of Strive kind of quickly when it came out but then I came back when Asuka came out and I think it's a lot more fun. Even when it came out I thought the main problem with the game is the cast is pretty boring and I still think that holds true now, I'm generally accepting of the system changes even if there are some things I'd like to be more in line with XX/Xrd, but the main weakness of the game for me is it just that a character being interesting feels like the exception rather than the rule, and in a series that I first came to really like because the characters felt so unique. I still like it now because it has a character I like, but I can't imagine putting even 50 hours into it playing someone as dull as Ram.

        moron. GG has never had that big of a following and has always had a pretty small following. No one was driven out by someone being gay and twitter posting about Bridge; the game being bad or different than what the core fans wanted would have done that.

        Just be open about your bigotry. You just don't like gay or trans people. Why dress it up and pretend that it's anything but wanting to complain about them?

          Many were driven out by mentally ill gays who posted about Bridget on twitter though.
          I don't give a shit about gay people, and frankly I don't care about actual, biological transgender people, but mentally ill gays who try to solve their irl problems by pretending to be women and then start crusades against anyone who points out how they're mentally unstable and possibly grifters has nothing to do with bigotry and everything to do with a terrible community that has been inflitrated by politically and economically motivated actors.

                This entire conversation is about why people dislike the Strive community specifically. Not the GG community, specifically Strive. When I pointed out that it just seems like people are whining about gay or trans people being out while playing the game, you started crying about how you're totally neutral and not bigoted, but for some reason people like you were driven out of the community by those mentally ill freaks on twitter.

                I'm not trans or gay, but I can tell that it's bigoted if you append every mention of their existence with "they're mentally ill homosexuals who are deluded and shouldn't be that way". Though you were never driven from the community because I doubt you ever played the game, or any fighting game for that matter, but just have an axe to grind for your moronic culture war.

                You aren't being bullied when I say that you can just be open about the fact that you hate gay people on Ganker. It may be considered bullying when I call you a moronic gay, though. You dumb gay.

          Actually a few years ago when +R got rollback a troony by the name of Hono managed to kick out the figurehead of the +R discord community ClassicGamingFighter after contacting their fellow troony who owned the +R discord server because they didn't speak out against another player who had an iron cross avatar and soon after enforced their own CoC that gave them all the power in the world and drove away most of the older playerbase.

            Honestly they're arguably among the most cancerous fanbases in the FGC. Even if you went there for an entirely different game you would go and show support to some of the other games happening in the venue. Guilty Gear 'fans' don't do that. Once their game is over they all bail and don't even attempt to support any other community even if their own kind is participating.

            is complaining that Strive players didn't stick around to watch the top 8 for all other games and didn't cheer as loud for a non-American player winning than they cheered for a runner-up American player at an American venue like it means the fanbase for the game is cancerous.

      +R & Xrd both have pretty dedicated bases but +R is slightly larger IIRC and the game gets you into lobbies insanely quickly compared to most any other fighter on the market. I'd also say +R is probably a little easier to understand despite being a little more technical than Xrd overall since Xrd just has a ton of little mechanics. That said it can depend heavily on who you plan to play in terms of difficulty.

        honestly i feel that +r controls way better, xrd feels weird and not as snappy as its predecessor and don't really like most of the characters in the game by gameplay. also i mained anji in +r (yes i know he's a shitter-proof character)
        anyways what are the best resources to learn about the game (i swear ill stop begging after this post)

              They made some changes for the worse, but the site is still solid. They took away some jokes, which I could take or leave, and they took away the pros and cons sections which I still think they did just to avoid people using it to point out how overpowered a character is, but that's not really the end of the world either.

        A lot of them did including the giant that is Max. It's not his fault SNK shot themselves in the foot by not fixing their matchmaking in a timely manner and losing to fricking Multiversus in the Game Awards as a result.

        How come people don't play KoF15? It really hit the spot for me and it has an enormous roster.

        To anyone that's not into it, XV is just more of the same but you have to rebuy all the DLC again.
        People tried with XIV and got burned and then got burned again with the matchmaking issues on XV. If you're not trying to compete for money, you can also just go back and play all the multiple good old KoFs and unfortunately having that option means the player base gets divided even more. KoF had their chance. CotW has potential for more adopters since the head of SNK is going to treat it like their AAA flagship but I wouldn't hold my breath.

          SF has been hideous ever since it's gone 3D, but SF being ugly doesn't make KOF good looking. SF can get away with it because it's a much bigger brand and people are going to play it anyway, Capcom would have to absolutely catastrophically frick up to get people to stop playing SF, but people aren't going to play KOF just on the name and it being somewhat ugly doesn't do much to convince people to give it a try.

            Wouldn't say it's ugly, but there's nothing about it's presentation that makes it stick out like the graphical quality of MK1, excessive effects of Tekken or the graffiti shit in SF6.
            It just looks boring compared to the others, definitely nothing here that would make a casual pick it up off of the looks.

            I'm curious if you played it. The screenshot you posted looks pretty low graphic but I'm also away from my computer at the moment so I cant take one.(Maybe I will later if the thread is still up)

        This is like comparing Missing Link to Centralfiction, the comparison doesn't make sense because one is obviously going to be more technical than the other after getting years of updates. CT was genuine kusoge same as ML whereas Strive and CF are the latest mainline games in their respective series. When someone says they don't want Blazblue to get the Strive treatment, they're talking about CP and CF era Blazblue and the mechanics within those games. BBTAG is far simpler than CF and has been basically disowned by Blazblue players so they don't want a repeat of that with a newer game.

    Strive is literally the most braindead goddamn fighting game ever. I bought it on sale recently and these characters have, like, 4 special attacks. I mean, it's not awful or anything, but it's like a completely different game compared to +R. So, the answer to your question, OP, is because it's full of casuals. If your game has high accessibility, you're going to get a community full of morons that don't give a shit about the series or even human decency, because being a decent person requires some semblance of effort and awareness, which is also what is asked of you for being good at anything, especially a fighting game.

                Nah, some of the good players are very chill and polite, Clayton's an actual insufferable butthole and his horrid personality is in full display as both a HOS player and a general GG player, TalesofJade is also a HOS player but he's nowhere as annoying and he's also a person with etiquette, Clayton literally stops fighting you the moment he wins a set and refuses to rematch you afterwards because he not so secretly hates losing.

    Fighting games in general collected dregs of society, doubly so anime fighters. Strive just entered limelight in exceptionally good circumstances and collected all sorts of freaky weirdos at once.
    I don't get the hate for Melty tists though, those guys were aight as far as anime nerds go. Besides occasional bad hygiene and being garden variety nasu fetishists I have no real receipts against them.

      Start small and find couple of people actually playing the game. Just play sets with them at one of your places. Then involve more people, once you are beyond single apartment capacity, its time to look for some kind of venue, find a place that will allow you to run your shit, really depends on location, could be anything from gazebo in the park with couple of outlets to some random ass pub with couple tvs. Be ready to pay for venue either from your pocket or from collective fund. DO KEEP RECEIPTS. Attract more people, start running small tournaments. After you've reached arbitrary number when you need a team to keep things running look for organizations to support whatever you doing. Maybe local govt, maybe some PCbang/e-sports arena place or electronics retail chain, maybe some uni/college if you are in higher education. After that start farming clout and look for further expansion and real sponsorships.
      I repeat DO KEEP RECEIPTS. Also keep your ears and eyes open and stomp out any shady bullshit in its infancy.

    the newest community of FG players have to be the most braindead fricking basedbrained losers I have ever seen, and it includes basically every modern fighting game right now.
    I have never before seen so many fighting game players who blame other characters or the game instead of themselves when they lose.
    It used to be that if you said shit like that, you were told to acquire skill.
    Now we have popular streamers shaming people for playing certain characters, demanding the game be balanced and catered towards them, etc.
    The final straw of this is slayer's release in strive. He's basically classic slayer but all the homosexuals are complaining that he is too strong because they are too moronic to take responsibility for being shit at the game

      I can somewhat understand those compliments. Modern FGs put so much focus on system mechanics, that characters who use them more effectively, on top of their unique strengths can often be frustrating as frick to play against.

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        fighting games have always had frustrating matchups
        The big thing is though is that pretty much all of those frustrating characters were only frustrating due to a lack of fundamentals or system knowledge
        Like people who would complain about grapplers, or people who rage at ringouts in soul calibur
        Nowadays it's "Everyone who plays this character is a chimp, carried carried carried. Oh my character though? Requires 300 IQ" and repeat ad nauseam for everyone.
        I'm gonna make a specific example of a homosexual youtuber/streamer.
        Diaphone, Granblue rising streamer, made a beginner's video for the game where he explicitly tells people to never give a shit what others say about your character and play who you want
        a day later, he starts screaming on stream how all Seox players are carried, a literal monkey could play this character, you should feel bad etc.
        He's not the only one either. When you have big streamers acting like fricking children, it sets a bad example for the community to follow.
        I can't tell you how many times I've been ragequit on recently playing a fighting game because I decided to play the character the "community" has collectively decided is bullshit.
        >play King in Tekken 8
        >endless ragequits
        >get back into Rising with Beatrix
        >endless ragequits
        >get back into strive with Slayer
        >surprise surprise, endless rage quits
        and it's almost accepted too. You can't even ask for advice on a matchup because you'll get everyone saying "Oh you're playing x, if you're losing to anyone you're bad."

          Well that's thing, before you HAD to suck it up and learn the matchup against obnoxious characters because you were stuck with them until the next game/revision. Now in the modern age you can just b***h enough and the character will get nerfed in 2-3 months in the next balance patch. This happens in every genre where devs are constantly catering to the average mid-wit player, see MMORPGs if you want another example.

          To be fair Seox is one of the most b***hmade characters in Rising and the way his tools interact punishes the opponent extremely hard for trying to play footsies between the parry that punishes you for tight frametraps and the invincible wall dive that punishes you for leaving a gap wider than a few frames, is safe on block and gives him 50% for landing
          He's not impossible to beat but he's cracked and his strengths are very overcentralizing, I can't think of anyone you'd be more justified in calling out like that besides Cag (who's slightly weaker but twists the game even harder than Seox) or 2B (who removes the concept of a whiff punish from the game entirely).

            proving my point

Frick Seox players

            Seox is oppressive but if you bother to learn the matchup he has some incredibly glaring weaknesses and terrible defensive options
            the wall dive is fine, it's a meter move so it should be good, but it does show a glaring problem with granblue's balance as a whole, because other characters have absolutely dogshit meter moves
            Point being complaints are better directed at some of the game's system mechanics (bravery points, ultimate skills, combo limit, etc.) and directed at requesting buffs for characters that are actually a struggle (Ladiva)

            Well that's thing, before you HAD to suck it up and learn the matchup against obnoxious characters because you were stuck with them until the next game/revision. Now in the modern age you can just b***h enough and the character will get nerfed in 2-3 months in the next balance patch. This happens in every genre where devs are constantly catering to the average mid-wit player, see MMORPGs if you want another example.

            existence of frequent balance patches has indeed been the big problem that has made players b***h and moan more. One of the reasons I have liked granblue is they have given much more time between balance patches so players can actually learn to deal with things and learn the game, but the problem is they are refusing to do that and b***hing about it, and big voices are b***hing about it too

          The thing with old games is that generally no one was anywhere near the skill ceiling. Even in a shitty matchup there was always something that you were just not quite good enough to do that would make a big difference, or your opponent wasn't good enough to leverage the really annoying shit
          Modern simplification games means that both more of the playerbase is able to access the dumb shit because it's being made easier, Strive damage for example is not new to the series, but Strive definitely made it more common and much, much easier whereas you used to never take more than 50% unless you were fighting a legitimately good player, and that your options to deal with it are much reduced. Slayer killed you from 60% from a crossup non-counterhit c.S off a +25 guard crush with 50 meter and no risc? Too bad, should have guessed right. Whereas the same move in Xrd was a guaranteed airthrow on IB and his reward on normal starters midscreen was much more limited anyway.
          The playerbases definitely did get b***hier but the games themselves changed a lot too.

            I think it's fine that the execution barrier for near optimal damage is lower honestly. The sooner people can actually start thinking about tech, interactions, spacing, setplay, and mindgames the better. A newer player constantly losing because the damage differential is so large because they haven't got their execution down yet doesn't help them, it just makes them sink time into training mode rather than playing the game. I don't think harder execution necessarily makes for a better game anyways.

          You can get relatively competent in short amount of time if you are not insisting on playing technical characters. Getting up to speed with Sol-Ky-Chipp-Jam-RoboKy is a matter of couple of weeks, you won't be anywhere close to ceiling, but you will be able to play matches, unless you are living in the middle of nowhere and your only opponents options are single Venom main that played since reload and some autistic Zappa clocking 100 hours weekly.

      you can do worse than strive but it's also in its 3rd season so there's less beginners and it's more complex, you sort of missed the boat and if you're not used to really sitting down and practicing a video game you might have a poor impression of the genre compared to something like street fighter where there's a huge amount of new players and a crazy amount of resources and game modes all set on easing you into PvP.
