New players are welcome. Top players in KOF XIII are encouraged NOT to enter the tournament, but are welcome to play casuals! If all goes well, we'll do this every month!

I hope so too!! This will be a wonderful way to start off the new year!

Hey, as Iori I'm having troubles dealing with characters with long range pokes in the corner (Kula, Fireball characters, Ralf), particularly with fast standing normals. What are my options out of this type of pressure as Iori? Mainly stumped because his longest range punish is the unsafe sweep, most of my counter poke attempts are snuffed by their faster longer range stuff, and the characters I'm having troubles dealing with can stand far outside my dp range (in range to snuff most of my jump in's on reaction). I've only consistently been able to get out using meter, EX dp sometimes, or a GC roll/cd. Similar issues with King, not so much with Shen.

Hey Mr.Minionman, I've been experimenting with EX Iori quite a lot lately. I'm not really good with him but sometimes when I find myself in the corner and my opponent is in poking range, I will just throw a Far Standing D. or simply just rekka my way out of there if I don't want to spend any meter. Hope that helps

lovin this game as each day comes! Let 2013 be the year of KOF 13!! This game definitely deserves a much bigger audience!

Be sure to add me if you haven't already have. Online isn't as bad as everyone says it is. I get really strong (4 bar) connection with people all the way from Oregon to Socal even. As long as your on 4 bars everything feels exactly just like if not even better/smoother than offline. So please give online another chance!

Edit: haha well nothing can beat offline for sure still but it's pretty darn close for me! I shouldn't have said "better/smoother" sorry misleading

Kim's Neomax is so epic! I think he has one of the most flashiest Neomax's in the game. It looks like something pulled right off of Dragon Ball Z or something lol

It's fairly simple actually, you just need to get your head around the fact that you need to practice it, a lot.

The simplest way of doing this is as follows: As soon as you press the  ;a or ;c for the second rekka you need to input the  ;dn ;df ;fd ;df ;dn ;db ;bk motion, and don't press the  ;a or ;c untill the rekka hits, I assure you, you won't get the DM cancel and will be able to follow up with the dp afterwards.

Practice practice practice.

I finally got it!!! I notice when I do it right, Iori's arm from the second rekka will come down quickly allowing for enough time to follow up with the dp or super. Now I just have to practice the left side! Here we go againnn!! Thank you so much Saiki you are very helpful

I'm having trouble empty canceling his second rekka into dp or super. I spent the past 2 hours in practice mode trying to do it and still no luck. Can someone show me how its done? If I wait too long to cancel my opponent falls to the ground and if too fast I get a super cancel. If I'm not asking too much, a vid showing the hands would be helpful thx!!

I have something planned that weekenddd but good luck to everyone that goes! Hope NorCal does well and leaves a lasting impression

As for the training/collaboration part, I'm always up for games (offline and online). I'll be free almost daily from now on so if theres anyone else in the SJ area would like to meet up just give me a heads up on here and I'll shoot you my contact info and availability

In the meantime I'll be streaming STA's Real Honest Sunday stream right here from home hehe really enjoy your guys stuff a lot

Note: My stick is PS3 compatible only! I should've put this out there earlier just incase so won't run into future problems with those that only use Xbox

I just got into this game not too long ago I certainly hope not! At least not for another 10 years I hope

I would really like to see KOF XIII take over all the other fighting games out there (at least for the United States) even if it takes 10 years from now. There's a lot of potential in KOF XIII, I'm pretty confident all the active players out there will and should try their best to keep this game alive. Please dont let this game die

There's a pretty sizable team of SoCal players down here, when do you plan on coming?

Haha it'd be nice if you could introduce me to the SoCal scene if ever I'm down there

you're in the SJ area? We're always looking for more people to play with! None of us go to SJSU (you should still pursue that idea though, the arcade scene there is alright) but if ever a session happens around here I'll hit you up.

Yes I'm from the South Bay area!! Just getting into the arcade scene too. I've made it a goal to tell at least 5 new people a day about this game whenever I'm down here on campus too! Would it be possible for us to exchange contact info through pm if you guys don't mind?

Hi, is there any active players in the NorCal region (SoCal is fine too) mind meeting up for some offline matches and adding me in the meantime for some online matches as well. I'm trying to gather more and more people to play with so I can get exposed to the different play styles out there and hopefully improve my game.

It's so sad theres literally only like 1 or 2 rooms ever open whenever I go online and yet this is the only fighting game ever worth playing but so little people play/know about this game. I would really like to see this game grow

P.S. does anyone know if there is a kof scene in SJSU? If not I would more than love to start up a club or even an event of some sort on campus to get people into this game

Training Room / Option Select Frustration
« on: September 02, 2012, 11:02:04 PM »
Is option select a must in competitive play or can I just avoid it all together. Do I have to master the option select technique in order to play at a level with the pros or can I just completely ignore using this technique to still beat them? I’m asking this because I still don’t quite understand the purpose of option select or know the proper time to use it.

But my MAIN question is how often do pros use it? I’ve been watching pro matches on youtube and stuff but have a hard time analyzing when an option select has been executed since most people don’t turn on input display when they play. Is there a way to spot out when to expect an option select will be used by my opponent? Is there a way to tell if my opponent is about to use it like can I see it coming so I can prepare for it?

P.S. To everyone that has responded to my question, it would be nice if you could also list at the end two examples when you guys use option select the most during a match.
