I don't blame them. Not just because it's always cool to cheer for the weaker one, but also because seeing Arakune fights(and Nu, to a VERY lesser extent) is boring as hell...

Well, i guess it's obvious that Rachel and Arakune are going to get a good nerf. I don't know how they would do that with Nu without changing all of her style, maybe a good time in the fridge, like they did with Justice in GGX, would do good for her.

Oh, yeah, i never noticed, but Jubei appears in Taokaka's astral finish. They don't even need to make a char from the zero for him, hehe.

It's funny how Rachel has one of if not the smallest move lists in the game and yet just three of those are enough to ensure a tough match especially if you are good at keeping away from the opponent. If not there is always her Slipheed or her down+C with it's solid knockback which for me ended up resulting in a perfect set up for a Sword's Iris followed by a George XIII almost every time against my friend. That's some good life damage. Especially if it was actually a Baden-Baden Lily.

It's not like she does good damage, but it quickly adds up and it's just that she makes it so hard to hit her.

I believe the majority of players were using those 3 characters. Either it was half or an bit over half the people playing BB at SBO. Only like 2 Ragna's and 1 or 2 Hakumen players out of 60 players I believe qualified. Its be tough to balance the game for every character in my opinion, its possible it could be like Guilty Gear where it take an few games to get it right. Though balancing an game like Guilty Gear Accent Core is already tough as it is.

I actually never noticed how small her move list was until now.

She does tend to have a lot of versatility with so few moves though, probably due to the fact she can manipulate most of her attacks with the wind.

Seems like you do not know her combos

Rachel has some of the highest ground combo damage in the game.

Yeah, like the one I fought this morning who I got down to 1-hit range and then killed me with 2 combos. As Hakumen. He came up again and I declined the match, felt bad since I don't normally do that but I don't really think I had much of a chance.

I've noticed an increasing number of counter-pickers lately. People seem to think that just picking Nu or Arakune makes you automatically beat Hakumen. In some cases they didn't even know any of their moves. Free wins are fun though I guess.

I think another good part of why the big 3 are so dominant is their mobility compared to every other character in the game. Still I hope they get their re-balancing right, though throwing in new characters isn't going to help in that regard unless they make them weak/mid tier initially and adjust them in future revisions... and we all know by GG that BB is going to get a lot... I think SFIV took that approach with the console exclusive characters since they really aren't as good as the arcade ones.

Been using Tager as my sub character lately (even though my D-card says Noel is my sub, HONESTLY! I USED HER LIKE ONCE!). But my main is still Arakune, I have pretty much almost perfected that corner trap, still having trouble against Nu's though.

The sub thing is bugged, once it's set it almost never changes (mine is shown as Rachel despite me playing her about 10 times and Jin twice that) and Hakumen and Nu will never be shown there at all.

There's a way to fix it, but it's too much work...

Would you mind sharing that knowledge? I wouldn't mind knowing for future use.

Play with your sub till he turns into your main, then play with your main again to make him the main and your sub will be your sub for real. If you did not played that much is easy, but for people with hundreds of battles...

Only a matter of time i guess. This will be a good chance to learn a bit more backstory on each character, plus the art looks pretty solid going by those sample images. Can't wait to read this.

Too bad the manga is more like a limited official doujin release at only 24 pages long which you need to mail-in to boot.

I'm more interested in that Material Collection which looks to be a general release ans looks better than the freebie artbook any day.

They have their own gravity field. In other words, they keep the opponent in place (whether they're blocking or not) and can be used as a juggle starter in combos.

does the location have to be exactly precise? cause i've seen videos of people in them, but they were still able to jump etc.

also, what is IAD?

thanks for answering the question.

Once stuck in the field, opponents get pulled towards it and find it hard to get out, you can jump but you move forward or backwards extremely slowly, it keeps opponents at bay. If an opponent falls because of an attack and is caught by the field, he is suspended in midair helpless and exposed to attacks. You set it up under the opponent for maximum effect, you can set it up else where to keep your opponent away or for some other purpose.

IAD is Instant Air Dash.

IAD is when you jump off the ground immediately into an air dash, used for maneuverability and extensively in combos.

What is 'the person in the boobs', Litchi, like us have no idea, she tried to ask Tao but decides not to carry on.

Anyway Tao is way more stupid in Japanese than in English, and cuter because of that lol. She not only has no idea of anything, she can't speak properly as well, she's too fluent in English and not 'neko' enough. Besides Japanese, I think the only people who can pull off catgirls perfectly would be the performers of 'Cats the Musical' lol
LOL

Anyway, I just got the game myself for my PS3 after noticing it at my favorite store and then reading a bit about it.

Once I started playing, I sure got an earful of fun and laughs.

Since I'm just getting started I'm still exploring the game (I'm not into the Guilty Gear series; and my favorite fighting game is still Soul Calibur 4 which I also have for my PS3, so my playing style isn't exactly suited to this game). I started out with Litchi, mainly because she's a babe and I guess I have a thing for Chinese Anime Girls (especially those clad in a Qipao or Chinese Dress), and already some of her lines drove me up the wall
Spoiler for My personal favorite:
