I think Magaki's and Saiki's positions should be switched. In their pre-transformed appearances, Saiki's hair often covers part of his face.

Other than that, yeah. Nice foreshadowing, SNK.
I thought that should be as well, except it would also mean that Saiki's standing on a step ladder or something, considering how tall Magaki is.

On the other hand, it's possible that they haven't actually made Saiki back then and this is just a concept art despite being in 2003's ending.

KOFXIII will be at NorCal Regionals 8. So if any of you live in the NorCal area, get $10 (NCR registration fee) and come on down.

If there will be another interview, I hope they mention about the games for PSN and possibly balance patches.

Seriously right?  They really should keep the board here in the US.

Basically is a "rule" people use to avoid the overuse of top tier characters and give other characters a try.

They give characters a point or ratio number, with the better characters having the highest numbers, the Max points are 5 (this depends on the place i think), so you need to choose your character and looking at his/her point so you don't exceed the 5 points limit.

From MMCafe
Code: [Select]
Max points = 5
Ratio / Character
5 K', Raiden
4 Kyo, Elisabeth, Takuma
3 Andy, Iori, Shen, Kula
2 Robert, Chin, Yuri, Maxima, Leona, Ash, Benimaru, Kim
1 Duolon, Goro, Terry, Clark, Hwa, King
0 Joe, Kensou, Athena, Ralf, Ryo, Mai, Mature, Vice




In your sig you have:

Shen , Leona, Ralf:

That's 3+2+0= 5. So thats ok and "allowed"

Benimaru, Clark, Joe:

2+1+0= 3. Also fine.

Kyo, DuoLon, Iori:

4+1+3= 8 .Here you exceeded the limit of 5 points.

Andy, Kensou, Terry:

3+0+1= 4 . No problem with this.


What happens if you exceed the 5 max points, i don't know, you need to ask the guys at Arcade Infinity that post here.


Keep in mind this ratio system can change in the future.

BTW, of all the arcades I've visited with KOF XIII, I've only seen one that used a ratio system for their tournaments. Just keep in mind that it's not a standard, so the ratio list is better off seen as just a tier list.

Except it's just based on character usage, so it's not even a very accurate tier list.

At AI, participation in the ratio system was optional. At Shinjuku Carnival, I believe participation is mandatory upon entering the tournament. But I think that's the only time it's used.

Being kind of a primary promoter for KoF in my state, I was recently asked by some locals if we'd be doing the ratio system when we play.  At first I answered "No" because I have yet to see many other vids employing the system.  While the AI vids are more fun to watch to me, I feel like the players getting into the game will feel it unfair that they can't choose K' and Iori, or something similar.  Now I'm also curious about what the current consensus is on the subject.

Obviously the list is still debatable, but what of the actual ratio system and it's usage?  What areas have been heard of using it?  Which areas aren't?

There's definitely no rush to adopt it, since most places don't even have a scene yet.

It only makes sense at places that have had the game for a while, where players want more character variety, or simply don't want to fight nothing but K's and Raidens.

Until you notice people voicing these feelings, don't worry about it.

i dont even watch those vids anymore, as soon as i see k, raiden, lizzy or kula i ff to the nex fight. theyre that gay. kyo, iori, yuri, andy are what id call normal top tiers. the 4 i hate are way too powerful for the normal cast imo.
In the end, there can only be XIII.
