Anyone have an opinion on maxima in terms of character balance? I'm still rather new, but I feel he does really well against heavy rushdown because of his autoguard, but has a hard time against fast characters with good midrange pokes. I've been looking for some Maxima play, but I can't seem to find any good games with him, or any sort of high level play. I'm wondering if the reliance on autogaurd has a part in that, i'd imagine he's a very dangerous character to play in high level play because of how punishable just about all of his whiffed normals are, and that better players are alot harder to read.

Well the only channel I know is this one they upload often but I think its just the same two dudes and MadKOF at uploads a lot of his online matches along with some offline stuff from time to time. Hopefully when Climax drops in Japan they start uploading more stuff.
That works :o thx

ok this is probably borderline super noob, but I've still been learning inputs and I keep running into hitches in real matches. I just recently noticed that I can't button mash the light normals and expect them to combo. Does this mean the game has some built in anti-mashing mechanism that i should break free from when trying to combo?

Also, how do inputs work on wakeup? I've tried to do things like wakeup reversals with king but i end up getting up and just standing there without doing anything.

And one more likely silly input question, I can't seem to get the jump-ins for  combos right... is there any secret trick that helps with that beyond perfect timing?

Is there a channel I can go to that is uploading competitive KOF games on as daily/semi-daily basis?

With BB I mainly just went to jourdal's channel ( or pktazn1213's channel ( and I always found something to watch. With SC2, there are hundreds on people uploading vids (Husky, HD, Psy, etc), and with LoL, there's always someone streaming. I understand Kof is much smaller then those games, but I can't seem to find a good source for vids to watch. I think I'm probably just looking in the wrong places though, hence this question.

Thanks for the replies! I'll be sure to look into the those. I decided on Maxima because I really enjoyed Bang's autoguard drive moves, and i liked the fact that he hit like a truck, as well as the aesthetic fact that he's a cyborg. And I didn't think I'd enjoy a zoner (didn't really like what I saw in other games), but I was set on King after just a few games with her. I greatly enjoyed the mix of zone and offense she presented. I'll be sure to read up on the wiki too.

Hey all, Mr.Minionman here,

I've been playing League of Legends and Starcraft 2, got bandwagon'd into playing some fighting games by some friends, but now I'm mildly hooked. Long history of SSB, but had a vendetta against real fighting games up to this point, so consider me fresh (besides getting some experience playing Bang in BB a bit before kof). Still working on getting inputs in muscle memory, etc, but I'll be coming here occasionally to ask questions and the likes. Excited to learn some KOFXIII, and hopefully my visit here will allow me to start winning some games!  ;)  On PSN, so if you want to beat up a scrub or something feel free to add me, username: mrminionman

And because I don't want to start a new thread for a short question, mind giving opinions/advice on my team build? Wanting to focus on a few characters to start to learn the games core, I'm pretty set on learning King and Maxima, but looking on a starter. Initially considered Shen or Kim, but they don't seem to be strong on point. Not all that interested in Benimaru, the Kyo's, or the Iori's, but I'm still hoping for him to be solid in all matchups. suggestions?
