Which character do you want playable?

  • 1. Kajun Faycott
  • 2. Trinity Glassfille
  • 3. Taro Sasaga'e
  • 4. Kazuma Kval
  • 5. Torakaka

What is your favorite fighting move?

  • 1. Serpent's Infernal Rapture (Hazama Distortion Drive)
  • 2. Dead Spike (Ragna special)
  • 3. Empty Sky True Form: Judgement of the Sword (Hakumen Astral Heat)
  • 4. Black Onslaught (Ragna Astral Heat)
  • 5. Serpent's Laceration (Terumi Distortion Drive)

What do you expect for BlazBlue's future?

  • New console game - 28%
  • New arcade game - 20%
  • New app game - 8%

Remember that CPEX came 3 years after CP.

If CFEX really would be a thing, I'd expect 3 years too, maybe a bit more.

"'If it ain't got tits then it ain't worth shit' — feminazi much?"

More along the lines of general perversion bias, given that both of the writers are males and one of them is a literal perv IC; the potential for characterization bleed is there, but I'm not blaming it entirely. However, on noticing that other male BB characters have actually won their DBX fights, my theory is shifting to it just being a Ragna hate-boner. And don't lie; given the poor research done for Ragna vs Sol Badguy, and the fact that Sol incinerates the BB story script after the match, it's a pretty hateful boner.

I wouldn't hold out any hope on this one. For any case.

But I have this kudos to give to Mori for having kept his word on not making any update to this one. He is the only Fighting Game producer still keeping his word where all others backpedalled on some manner.

Mori is a known liar and trial, honestly thos was a surprise.

Ragna has gained a Memetic Loser reputation despite most of his "losses" being Worf Had the Flu so they would think that he'd lose against anybody (for hate boners), compared to Sol which was Invincible Hero (he's one of the few who gets no hate over this ._.); Admittedly Sol is like Azrael.

It's also just that Guilty Gear will always prevail over BB, for FG players, due to Nostalgia Filter that they can easily accept an arguable Marty Stu. The lesson is; to make BB considered good you must, do like BB does, time travel back to 90's so it have a big Nostalgia Filter.

Not like Sol's completely unstoppable as he's gotten his shit kicked in by the likes of Justice, Slayer, That Man, and even I-no. Now you could make the case he was in base when those L's happened, but so was Ragna during his worfing moments.

There are far more jokes at Ragna's expense than Sol as well.

Indeed. The Blazblue narrative treated him as you'd expect of an edgy tryhard.

Except Ragna actually proves his credentials when it mattered most.

Yeah the thing is the power levels in GG are much more absurd than BB has. Bedman himself could probably wipe out a huge chunk of the cast using less than 10% of his power.

Ragna also has the burden of not overdoing his own power to keep himself in check while sol can go buck wild whenever he feels it seems.

Sol does have the same drawback with Dragon Install Rags has with the Azure, but unlike Ragna, it's not implied that just using his regular powerset would destroy his body.

Well, until Xrd implied that the seal on his powers is weakening. Honestly, it's not that Ragna is weak, it's that his opponents are goddamn powerful. Look at their arch enemies; That Man is powerful, no doubt and has lots of knowledge but Terumi is the actual fucking devil incarnate and has been alive for as long as his world has been in existence.

Ragna had a far more uphill battle.

But Sol also still only using very few part of his power, even without drawbacks unlike Ragna.

Also as I said before, Ragna was fighting powerful opponents AND being crippled (by Hazama or Celica), who would win fights with only 1 arm and eye? The only time he was defeated fully (before CF) is vs Hakumen (not really lose but Nirvana injured him). But yeah general people mindset is losing means weak no matter the condition of fight, but also character who beats many (even if those are weak) are considered OP and one of World's Strongest Man.

It explicitly stated that Ragna was learning to stop being Unskilled, but Strong in CP yet one of the complains of CF is Ragna "suddenly become strong" that he beat most cast (I think no Unlimited playable in CF also helps for this).

And yeah other reason Sol is 100% more likable than Ragna (for most) was that Ragna was put more on a joke of his expense (that he has 0% Approval Rating for being a criminal) that "Sol's personality is more badass" because to them he's more charming. Kagura is the one resemble Sol more than him that he's got charm.

Btw you think that even the ordinary fighters of GG (like Jam) outclasses BB too in powerscaling?

For the most part? Yeah, pretty much. Even regular fighters like Jam and May are able to hang with the likes of Ramlethal and Jack-O. And it's also worth noting that Slayer even said Jam has the potential to match him, the same Slayer that can send people out of the galaxy with a single serious punch. GG is stupidly overpowered as a whole compared to most fighters, and that's without getting into the crazy magic bullshit.

So quick question.

The Nox Nyctores were made to fight agaisnt the black beast....so what the hell does Nirvana and Bolverk have to do with that? I was under the impression that for bolverk noel needed to have some acknowledgement of her target for her to hit them from far away, like the death note, and nirvana...what the fuck does it even do?

From what I remember, Bolverk shooting is basically mentally locking on what area spatially you want to target and then it causes an explosion to happen there. So there really isn't any projectiles.

Nirvana is uh... well I could see Nine using her as a model for mass production which would make sense but yeah

Jan 18th 2019 at 2:45:25 PM

...bolverk seems like it should be a lot more overpowered than what we see.

Yeah, theoretically, if there was a wall blocking your vision of your target, it shouldn't matter because get clairvoyant and use your mind's eye

You literally warp space as a gunshot

Dunno why that got chosen as a limiter for Noel to not go cray cray when turning into Mu but there you go

Wait whats this about a limiter? because that sounds stupid

Bolverk suppressed Noel's emotions so Mu won't come out when she's emotionally stressed.
