Point of armor breaking?

So, I did a search and didn't seem to find a fiitting anwser for this question. So, what is the point of armor breaking in this game? I understand in IV (I'm pretty sure it affected the stat you had on them?), but what does it do in this game? Because, like, as soon a I lose a single round, the very last move, whatever it might be, breaks my cloths and I have to rund around ''naked'' for the rest of the time, that's kind of distracting. (Well, most of the time anyway it nakes me). Like, did it really have to destroy everything too???

I wouldn't get as distracted if I knew it actualy did something, but I don't notice a change in ''defense'' or anything. Unless it's really small or I'm just not paying enough attention.

Should have kept it with 3 seperate sets of armor.

Something I never understand with games these days, once upon a time they used to expand on all aspects and even if it hadn't been improved that feature would still be available. Instead sequels now add a bunch of features and remove a bunch of features then add a load of crap via DLC. So in some respects its an improvement but in other aspects its gone back on itself, I fail to see the logic myself.

That's what I figured. Oh well, at least it was worth asking I guess. And somehow being Ring-outed also destroyed my cloths, for god knows why? Maybe to dry them out while dueling, that would make sense.

I would see more of the point if it actualy did anything outside ''fanservice''. The thing is that this pseudo''fanservice'' is that they're trying to appeal to everyone, but they piss everyone off. And then they try to fix it on DLC wich you have to pay for, basicaly, something that should have been free, pissing even more people off.

Anyway, yeah. Fanservice. Hey wait a minute, this (armor breaking) mainly only happens on my female CaS, WTF. In fact, I don't even think it happened yet to my Jayden or Ol' man Gary. I'm kind of offended, but I guess seeing bis-ass dude prancing around in fundoshi or what not wouldn't please too many people. (Then again, we have Voldo existing so... yeah.)

Edit : These pics reminds me of when the connection get lost online the screen freeze for a bit and it usualy happens when I get a kick in just at the right angle for fanservice xD, even more so if the armor is broken.

It happens when you loser of a round takes a sufficiently damaging hit, so I regard it as a, "DAYUM, U GOT YO PANTS SMACKT OFF!"

I also think it a cool effect. One thing I wish that we can choose which items break. That way if people don't want their clothes to break they can just set them all to unbreakable and those who want to keep certain parts on can fight without losing the most important parts of the characters.

The armor breaking is just for show really I don't think there's any stat changes associsated with it. Sure half the time I don't even notice it that much, and whenever I do it's because it happens after I do some kinda cool combo to finish the round/match which I guess kinda adds to the victory in a small way :) If you wanna avoid fighting in the nude just make sure your characters wear lots of layers :P

I agree with ya there whole-heartedly but there isn't any point in complaining about stuff that's not in the game, if the devs were gonna put it in I think they would've but alas.... So you just gotta take the stuff that IS in the game, and then complain about that stuff :P

You have a valid point, but still is stupid to complain about something that adds to the game, is like: I wanna complain about patterns in CAS cause they are all weird...

It isn't something that adds to the game though is it, previous game had 3 seperate sets of armor which could be broken depending on damage to different parts of the body. I would have preferred it if you could break it in 3 different rounds myself but thats just a nice afterthought rather than a complaint. If it isn't broken to begin with why 'fix' it.

armor breaking is a pretty neat feature, but it could'v been made so that not all armor breaks of, instead some parts of the armor, scratches etc.. Ah well, its good enough =P

Female characters only break out their hat, some outer coat, or some accessories so it can't really be sex appeal there. Then again...male characters go completely shirtless (Xiba, ZWEI, alpha Patroklos...)

This is why we can't have nice things.

They have armor break and everyone assumes it's all about the pornoeses. Very, very little actually comes off of the normal female character models while large parts of CaS garbage bust off. The pictures above aren't even of armor breaks.

I don't know about you, but I enjoy breaking off Friendship is Magic horse heads and hideously colored Kittymeow outfits.

This would be VERY nice.

I made a Satyr/Dryad chick with the goat legs and ram horns and they break off along with her clothing, which looks Incredibly Stupid. I need to be able to set them as unbreakable so she doesn't fundamentally change races every time...
