And yet another WTF lol.

The chances of anyone winning just increased by a lot.

Xiaohai is one of the players that often loses in the beginning and comes back after studying his opponent mid match (and coming back from losers) so it feels like this is to his disadvantage.

M' and Picnic (the Japanese players) on the other hand should be very used to this.

Who will replace Reynald though? It will have to be someone from Japan since this is super short notice. I mean heck they have Kindevu on commentary, he actually attended a lot of KOFXIV tournaments in Japan and even traveled to Chinese tournaments for it (and did extremely well, his Luong is scary af). He could be a great option for a last minute special invite.

Kind of a bad showing for the KOF community too.
But i guess he had a good reason, dude's a true KOF OG.

Update: He had issues with his passport paperwork

Damn.

Well at least it was that and not something stupid like him just being late for the flight.

Looks like SNK has confirmed that they will proceed with the remaining 15 players, there won't be a replacement.

EDIT:

Made a thread for the tournament.

The tournament was fantastic, so many great matches. The best was of course Xiaohai vs. M'.

M's patience was something else. The dude just doesn't crack under pressure.

Oh and using XIV's in game announcer and Meitenkun's VA as the MCs was so damn awesome. They were excellent and switching between fluent Japanese, English and Chinese commentary on the fly between the two of them.

How were your impressions of the event?

Yagami (Eiji)

It's worth looking at for the characters listed, but there's no way we're getting 16 DLC characters. I say we get 6, at the absolute maximum.

I'm so used to "Saturday morning" being "The morning of Sunday" thanks to Toonami, that I totally had the Tourney mistimed! DoH! Thanks goodness for Stream Archives, eh? (-_-;;)

So Sylvie is getting a Red Riding Hood Outfit... I can deal with that. More imaginative than simply Casual clothes, and just off-kilter enough to fit her.

Free DLC stages, including the FF2 traditional Train Stage (Very nice to see this happen complete with Mt. Rushmore), and what looks like a throwback to the KoF 2001 Racing Stage?





And that's some weird stuff going on with our DLC Chara Silhouettes:



How many pairs of legs am I seeing? Ha. I'd be all for leftmost being Whippy... At least it doesn't look like we're getting straight CYS? Of course I'd welcome Mary back with no hesitation too... who'se the big guy? Is there someone in front of them?

Whip doesn't seem that likely to sit like that - I'm thinking Kasumi...

The KoF97 Monaco stage seems like the better fit.

Yup, totally right, I think I have a blind spot for 97 at times (though I do have it on Saturn, it always glitched up for me...)



Great to see some Nostalgic stages, and we needed a "moving" stage like the Train to keep up with KoF traditions.

For a while I was starting to think the stages were clues about who the new characters were gonna be. That got thrown out once I realized that Blue Mary and Yamazaki debuted in Fatal Fury 3, not 2.

There's definitely 4 people in that picture. The one kneeling, the one standing up, the one leaning over on the right, and there is one in front of them that almost looks like they're in a walking motion. My guesses for them respectively are Kasumi, Vanessa, Yamazaki and Whip.

KOF99 rain stage pls.

They have pretty much covered everything with post launch support (major graphical update, balance updates, costumes DLC, stage DLC, character DLC).

The only thing I can think of that is remaining is sound, wonder if they are considering an arranged sountrack or classic tracks?

Yeah it's four for sure it seems and they will probably be added at the bottom of the character select next to Antonov and Verse, and considered more as individual characters than a 'team' (and will probably be released as such).

My money is on Whip, Vanessa, Yamazaki and Mary.

On a side note, we are finally getting some character guessing hype (which we were robbed of with the main roster due to that full roster leak before the game was even announced).

Yeah, it would have been a nice drop, to relate them to the stages. I'm just happy that no matter what, in KoF, I pretty much love every characters. There's a lot in SF where I feel like adding certain people really does feel like a waste... until we get to their new moveset tweaks, and then they're more interesting.

KoF characters have such nice personalities, even the ones I don't like, I look forward to seeing in motion, speaking, acting in their unique ways, again.

The closest 3D game stage I can think of to that is the "Lightning Storm" stage from Tekken 6 BR. It's sad how few stormy, rainy stages we see in 3D graphic fighters. I'd love to see them go for it!

The only thing I can think of that is remaining is sound, wonder if they are considering an arranged sountrack or classic tracks?

Hope the new DLC characters come with some special rival tracks, too. I'd love it if they snuck in new ones, unannounced, even with old matchups. Ryo VS Geese could use one, for example, or we could have one for Idol VS Idol, Bird Girl VS Bird Girl, etc...

Running Terry - Geese - Athena lately. Terry builds meter, Geese is there for damage explosiveness, and Athena is the all-around character who can play wherever. Would you guys change this order?

I've seen all three of them used in all positions so the order is really up to you.

Though something to consider is that both Terry and Geese are better at cashing out meter than Athena and can do huge damage with simple combos. Athena can also be more annoying to deal with when the opponent has less meter to work with.

So yeah, they can go anywhere so it depends on how you play them and their purpose on your team.

What's considered the single worst matchup in this game? Also, does Geese do well versus the following: Mai, Joe, Terry, Athena? I'm trying to break down some of his matchups. Thanks.

Where's the Terry one though :(

Wonder if they will partner with anyone in NA to sell here as well.

I haven't done so personally but I just fought a long online session against someone who did.

Did you try accessing like the other alt costumes?
