Earlier this week, I run into an interesting series of tweets coming from Speedkicks about the usage of the word “carried” in Fighting Games. And I find it so interesting I will like to share it with you.
It is over eight months since we got the latest S2 DLC – Hwang. He is the most flashy and most complex character in the whole SC6… But is he also good? That is the question for Boom – with the support of Skyll and Shen Chan!
Today, we focused into characters and meta revolving around them. For this, we had Boom and PartyWolf from America; Aelz and Skyll from Europe; and Shen Cahn, TheKura and Yuttoto from Asia to answer the questions!
In today’s 3rd (regular) issue of State of Calibur, the theme is simple: Stages. Such a subtle, often overlooked part of the game. What have Aelz, Boom, Shen Chan, Party Wolf, Skyll & Shen Yuan to say about them?
The best part of every tierlist – at least to me – is the discussion under it with insights of how players perceives characters relative strengths and weakness. And some of the thoughts brought by TheKuras tierlist were really great. Here I bring you the selection of some interesting reactions!
On Sunday, I saw short clip from TheKura’s stream with collaborative Korean tierlist that looked nothing like what we are used to see in Europe or America. I become… curious. I couldn’t help myself so I reached out to him, asking for details.
In today’s State of Calibur, questions focused on current situation where our game was moved to online-only environment. The questions were generously answered by Aelz, Boom, Shen Chan, Party Wolf, Skyll & Shen Yuan.
Europe and America usually place Hao into low to mid tiers; but in Asia, there are people who consider him superstrong. One of those is Shen Yuan from Singapore whom I asked why he think so – and to compare, I asked top EU Hao player Habaduba for his opinion too.
In this first ‘test’ episode of the new irregular series, we will discuss the game as it now plays after the most recent Hwang’s patch. Opinions graciously come from Boom, Party Wolf, Rufus, Shen Chan, and Skyll.
This list don’t look upon balance but instead, upon difficulty to to learn & play each character. While this may not be important topic for seasoned competitors, both newcomers and intermediate players may find this interesting when picking up their mains and/or secondaries.
