Do we have any more news about the January patch?
I hear that the reason EVO Japan participation numbers are so low is because they moved the venue from Tokyo to Hiroshima. It seems Japanese law/bureaucracy is screwing over the profits (to the point that EVO Japan 2018 lost over 1 million dollars) that they're having to move somewhere cheaper.
Forgot to answer hereDoes anyone know a good strat to beat Raphael.
Sophie and Zas struggle against him.
My main problem is openings I find very very little.
Although his attacks are mainly vertical focused his attack speed is pretty brutal and they usually come with knockdown follow ups,
I don’t know if I’m getting up right either as im getting trapped into more follow ups.
If you refer to rising BB iprep cancel its only from crouch and if you look at the damage after the nerf is nothing so incredible.And the fact his punishes cancel into a CE just leaves me lost.
Ain't nobody in Japan trying to go to Fukuoka, apparently. lolDude those numbers are so low wtf?
There's really no way to be certain when an official reveal will occur, and there are two remaining in the current DLC season pass which have not yet been announced. However, file references found by fans in the game after the most recent patch (and some tongue and cheek responses by the dev team with regard to those discoveries) have made it fairly certain that those two characters will be Cassandra and Amy. Beyond that, the best guess one might make for the official announcements is that Cassandra will be at some point in early February and that Amy (assuming the company doesn't just bite the bullet and announce her at the same as Cassie) will be announced six weeks to two months after. There's been a very rough (but not absolute) pattern so far of announcements and releases being interspersed and running in a character drop/balance patch/CaS drop cycle. So you can kinda-sorta work out the rough continuity, but the exact specific (particularly the precise dates) very much hinge on when they manage to complete the content itself (obviously enough, of course).When is the final DLC character reveal due? I've not been here for while, but I noticed it didn't happen over the new year period.
Yup, that's pretty much what I was imagining, and more or less consistent with usual development and marketing timelines for content of these sorts, further shaped by what we know of their specific priorities in this case. I'm hoping that we might get the Amy announcement and release each about a month earlier than the two rough dates you've projected here, but I'm not holding my breath. We could also realistically see Cassandra in late March, rather than April, though the smart money is probably on the latter. Regardless, I'd be surprised if the order of announcements/releases was anything other than the one you've detailed there. And while I understand why you phrased it as you did, to not appear to be more certain than anyone reasonably can be at this point, I wouldn't say that's "pure speculation"; there's plenty of evidence and reasonable industry best practice assumptions to support the expectation of that rough timeline.
Well then, with respect, you don't know the first thing about how ready publishers are to start making money this way, particularly when they own their own development teams. And that's before you consider all the extended evidence here and the fact that Namco has already adopted this model with its other fighters in the last year. The writing is on the wall with this one: season two is just short of a lock, but still a substantial certainty and I'm confused as to why you keep saying your are not expecting it. Is it based on more than just a vague impulsive call? What combination of specific facts with regard to this property / this company and its business practices and basic industry realities makes you so convinced that they wouldn't avail themselves of a model for selling their products that gives them vastly improved net returns when compared against their base product and allows them to tailor production investment much more closely to demand? Why are you so convinced Namco, who is about as ideally positioned to take advantage of this trend as any company is (and has already started to do it with their other properties) is going to pass up that easy and lucrative model (which if they can establish it as the new normal, will allow them to do an end run around the base game pricing freeze that has been in effect for twenty five years) with regard to this one particular franchise? Look, a lot of things can come along keep it from happening--not the least of which would be poor sales on the first season--but I think the smart money is clearly that it's happening.
