    The Calibur Primer Yomi, a term originating from VF and Sirlin Games, gets used a lot. But what does it really mean? It’s a fairly simple idea, meaning knowing the mind of the opponent. It means knowing what your opponent will do next so that you can capitalize on it. So how do we...

Is it step, evasion properties, SG damage? What will determine a tier in SC5 with the addition of...
