KoF probably gets a pass because it's a long running series from 90s with very dedicated cult fanbase. It has a prestige (rivaling SF back in it's heyday) the current 2D ones lack even if the series in general isn't very different any other 2D fighter.
Actually, KoF's fanbase is more concentrated in Mexico. The United States is pretty much dominated by Capcom fighters.

For what it's worth, we'll see where anime fighters stand come tuesday, when they announce the games for EVO.
There's very little reason P4U should stay out of it, but we'll see, because it'll be a damn shame if it doesn't make it.

Persona 4 should be in. With all the accolades it's gotten it should be. Wasn't Guilty Gear at Evo before?

Side event I think. Then GG died and BB took over, but BB has been relegated to side events too because the community here never really had the numbers. Now it's competing against P4U too, so it's probably not going to get in unless it's fantastic or P4U dies off.

Hence, our criticism towards that "type" of naming.

For me, there's only Action Fighters, 3D Fighters and 2D Fighters.

I've been coming across this early tier list fairly frequently around DL lately. As always this should be taken with a grain of salt, but it's nice to get a general view about how JP players are feeling towards the cast:
Quote:
S: Taokaka, Hazama, Hakumen, Jin, Litchi
A+: Mu, Azrael, Valkenhayn, Relius
A: Ragna, Carl, Arakune, Rachel, Tsubaki, Bang, Platinum, Nu
B: The Others

Oh that's interesting. KoF still seems to have some presence here though as XI and XIII were pretty hyped.

General consensus does have Tao, Hazama, Hakuman, Litchi, and Jin at the top, with Jin being the "weakest" of the top tier.

On the other hand, Izayoi, Amane, Makoto are frequent bottom tier characters on most lists.

The middle ones are always the topic of discussion.

so Izayoi's low tier huh?
different from what I've imagined when her gameplay preview was shown. I thought she'd be top tier for sure

Horizontal order often doesn't matter in these lists.

Jin is without a doubt the most solid.

I have some questions to ask

I picked up Blaz Blue Calamity Trigger (its the first one right?) on a friends request over Christmas. I've finished the last game I was playing so I've decided to give this a whirl now. So my main question as a total newbie to the game, Which character storys do you recommend to play first and is there any tips or stratergies I should know about?

I just watched the opening scene and am a little confused what happened. Some science experiment gone wrong? a satellite launching an attack from space ? Is it normal to not get what just happened ?

you're not really supposed to understand what's going on in the storyline until you do most of them to unlock the true end.

general thing you should understand is that in CT it's a time loop so all the non-comedy ending technically do happen in one loop or another.

It's best to choose a character that has the play style that best suits you, or appeals to you. You can even choose by character design. Try all of them before, and you'll be able to decide.

If you want to play for fun, or want to play other players as early as possible, then simple characters like Ragna or Jin is easy to start with. Noel is also easy to use in BBCT as you could mash her drive moves. If you want to win, then you'd have to pick the strong characters.

That's... terrible advice to give. You're encouraging bad habits by telling him to D spam with Noel. That's like telling people to do flowchart Ken with Shoryukens all day.

C'mon guys, he's playing for the Story.
If he wanted to be a competitive player he would get CSEX.

If he wanted to play for the story and play online ompetitively then he would have gotten extend. Because extend has all the story from ct summarized plus it's own story mode and the online is still not dead on both consoles

But it works at a casual level. You might hate flowchart Ken, but it works. It's the same as playing waiting-Guile. Not everyone wants to blow hundred of hours to learn hard to use characters like Arakune or Valk.

Besides, D spam for Noel only worked in BBCT, so might as well enjoy it while you have the chance to.
