Last Blade 2 General Discussion
« on: March 17, 2011, 08:32:01 PM »
This game has to be one the most technically deep fighters SNK has made, or just ever. I've always used the Power type thanks to years of getting used to FF/KoF DMs and SDMs. For going into the Speed and Ex, I know it's going to be a challege, especially mastering everyone's Super Speed Combos. Curious though, for anyone who's played, do you think the characters themselves change a great deal, or is it just the moves and damage? Do the characters feel lighter with Speed, or in-between in EX?

It depends on the character... Some benefit from either 2 or all 3 modes, whereas some only truly benefit from 1 mode... Juzoh and Moriya are good examples... Juzoh doesn't really benefit from Speed mode, so in order to do the damage that he needs to do with a few combos and a command throw, you need Power mode... Moriya on the other hand can work with Power mode, since he has rekkas and can easily combo into them, but he also benefits from Speed mode which allows him to rush down relentlessly... I personally would use S-Moriya because the opponent needs really strong yomi to counter anything S-Moriya throws out... Plus his combos are still just as strong because they can be extended more, and it compliments his even stronger mixup game... Just check the vid out to see for yourself...

I've never really messed with EX mode, but from what I have gathered, its not really "EX" as in a Guilty Gear sense, but more of a KOF sense, where its not overpowered at all, just alot harder to use in fact because you can die quickly... Plus its a combo of Power and Speed modes, all of the pluses from both are there to compensate...

Speed does feel lighter and faster but EX mode feels the lightest and fastest compare to the other modes. I was able to unlocked EX mode today and compare the speed between those two modes.

A video like this is exactly why I was so content with always using Power. The skill of that Moriya player with speed in the first round was damn-near perfect; rush-down to the point that Amano couldn't be anything but pinned down. After the first round though, as soon as Amano delivers a few solid hits that eat lots of life, the Moriya player got so unconfrontational with him. Knowing now what speed is capable of though, I see a few more possible strategies, even with other characters. Something tells me whoever thought of Hibiki had skill in mind when they developed her.

Good stuff jed. Thanks. Though Amano's hitboxes would be slightly bigger, but know I know.

Wow... I knew about the arc jump in infinites, but I had no idea there were dashing jab infinites like in Bleach DS... I personally like Akari's infinite, but only use it on the CPU... Plus the 1 frame link infinites were pretty dope, too...

Speaking of 1-frame links, what's the general timing for that, and are there any vids for it??? I know 1-frame links in JJBA can be relatively easy to do, depending on the character, and whether or not you have to buffer a dash, but say Kagami's crouching ;a to standing ;bk ;a link seems harder imo... What's everyone's thoughts on this???

Pure, your video got taken down. Obv the account was suspended.
EX can die in one power-combo for the most part. They also build meter way slower than everybody else.

I'd personally ban the winpose delay glitch too, it can give you a serious edge over the enemy if you do it right.

Unblockable air-hit glitch is fine, it's extremely hard to do so if it's pulled off, you deserve it. :3

Common Banlist
Any infinites
Bugged moves that allow for unintended air combos such as Zantestsu and Lee's air A / C and O-Kaede's air combos.
Akari's air-throw glitch
Zantetsu's 2368A loop and Akari's 4B loop past ~2 reps.
Using Kouyru

Tier List
Mirror Tier
    Hagure
S Tier
    Zantetsu

    Amano

With announcement of a new port of the game. And SNK's interest in bringing back old IPs.

I hang out in the fightcade lobby for LB2, if anyone wants to play. Fightcade name is fullnanaya
