I feel like Geese has beat every Iori he's had to face today, lol. I've seen his quote VS him so many times.

I'd never play Vice in a tourney like this, heh. She's got great stuff, but it depends on having better fundamentals that your opponent, and that's hard early on.

Y'know, I have to say I feel having a pocket Kyo or Iori really helps your overall KOF game. Iori's normals are so solid, he's a good transition character for players who don't understand the KoF neutral, to me. I wonder if GEESE will feel like that to XIV noobies? I'm really liking his normals here.

Man, a Mature player just got 50% off of a max mode anti air with the Ebony Tears projectile followed into that jumping claw special. Holy crap.
Talk about a "This is never soppose to happen!" moments, lol. It was pretty beautiful. Mature HURTS. I really like how she's deceptively strong, compared to Vice, who'se much more blunt about straight beating you into a pulp.
Athena OCV. I can't imagine the rage losing to that gameplay lol
I still think Athena would piss me off less than SRK->FADC, lol. Psycho-sword does such low damage...it takes a long time to die from so many stray hits, and the game has so many ways to make 1 opening hurt SO much.

I think Mai would anger me more ATM, lol. Falling into that CDM off ANYTHING you decide to do... girl's punishing full screen footsies and raw activations, lol.

How are his parries?

KOF XIV might be the game with characters' tools will have to be used to the fullest. No more relying on invincible supers to get out of situations or playing every character like Kyo.
Seem about the same as XIII.

His fireball and normals game feels completely off.

After seeing this tourney I'm certain my team is

Meitenkun / Mui Mui

My anchor for now is intended to be Kukri, but if he doesn't suit me I'll likely either revert back to my K' or Kyo since both look great or just end up with a misc newcomer.

For some reason I just dont think my Banderas idea is gonna work for how I play. Meitenkun/Mui Mui though is a full on lock. I called Mui Mui as my gal as soon as the trailer hit for her. She had everything I wanted Ironfist to be and more. Meitenkun today proved he can go on point, zone it up for me and also corner well. His max mode should be crazy. I'm curious about potentially testing him at anchor later for the permanent EX tool shenanigans it'd give me.

I'm surprised people really want CvS3 so bad with how Capcom had been dropping the ball lately.
Get all the SNK characters up front but have to buy half of the Capcom ones
and their colours
separately over the course of a few years? :D Nope, Fatal Fury please!

You have to wonder about that netcode comment - they sound confident, and it's clear they could have beta tested it so much if they wanted to... Not even putting it in the demo now? They've got a lot riding on this game so I think the netcode is gonna turn out solid and they've just been quiet for the sake of "under promise and over deliver".

Honestly, if the netcode is on part with what ASW has done in Guilty Gear and Blazblue, it should satisfy the community

for real when Juice lost to frionel I was salty af

edit: Wow. Great job for Juicebox. Great Run. I hope he sticks with this team. Thanks to him, we know that Ramon's body splash can be low profile.
Speaking of Ramon, I didn't expect qcb+LP to go over Psycho Ball lol.

Yo Juicebox, congrats on making top 8 at the KOF XIV tournament. You were just shy of top 3, but you did beat a former EVO champ, so good on you.

This whole tournament has been a very good showing of the game. When folks learn their teams...tourneys will be crazy.

Is the Demo only going to be available for Asia PSN accounts?

There isn't any confirmation that it will eventually get a UK or US release is there?
I'm sure it's coming out everywhere. The demo was announced at EVO after all and it was said to come out on the 19th. This Tuesday when PSN updates for the US. The HK version was announced to come out on the 20th.

Great finals. Really hope this is just the start of KOF having a more permanent residency at EVO.
