Tiers for Killer Instinct

King of Fighters 13 is the next game to get the EventHubs tiers treatment

We've just launched King of Fighters 13 as the next game in the EventHubs tiers section. You can now vote to your heart's content on KoF13 character match ups and discuss them with other EventHubs users.

Please note this section is new and as votes come through, many match-ups will be inaccurate, initially. Calculations happen every hour, so be sure to check back often to see how the matches are shaping up.

If you're in the know about KoF13, please drop that knowledge on our tiers system. And, if you know others that might have valuable insight, be sure to share the link on Twitter and Facebook.

This is just one of many more games to get the tiers treatment.

If you can't contain your excitement in anticipation of your favorite fighting game getting added to the tiers section, let us know in the comments below and we just might make it happen sooner.

Keep checking back for more announcements.

GamerBee lists the top 5 characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4, says Sagat may become #1 in the game

AVM|GamerBee is currently in Japan and logging in time with the arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4. After checking it out for the past couple of days, and testing things out for himself, he has taken to Twitter in order to relay his discoveries unto the world.

The top Adon player notes that Ultra Street Fighter 4's new delayed wake up mechanic makes set-play, or vortex-style play, more difficult. GamerBee states that characters with strong footsies have improved simply due to the changes made to the overall game, not necessarily due to specific character tweaks.

He goes on to list who he feels are the top 5 characters in the game so far, and although he doesn't know how the tiers will end up exactly, GamerBee did mention who he feels will eventually reign supreme. "I can't tell the order yet," he said, "but I think Sagat has a better chance of becoming number 1 because he got almost everything he need[ed] in USF4."

Hit the jump to check out who GamerBee feels are the top 5 characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Let Bonchan show you, how to Bonchan-Shoryu with Evil Ryu in this new Ultra Street Fighter 4 character breakdown video

What's Bonchan-Shoryu, you ask? Well, it's the art of... playing so well that you won't have to rely on Shoryukens as much.

And with Evil Ryu's uninterruptible crouching medium kick into Hadouken blockstring, and an improved forward+MK command normal that no longer whiffs on certain situations, you won't have to pull out an UmeShoryu (which translates to "Nice Shoryu") as often.

That's a good thing in Ultra Street Fighter 4, given that Shoryuken FADCs have been nerfed in general.

Hit the jump to watch Bonchan's breakdown of Evil Ryu's play style and changes in USF4, along with a written transcript of what he said, provided by EventHubs's very own KarbyP.

Making -5 Dragon Punch FADC setups safe in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Following up on his previous video which showed how the -5 disadvantage could work on a blocked Dragon Punch FADC in Ultra Street Fighter 4, Carnoustie also showed how you should be able to make these moves safe in the new version of the game, plus bait out attacks for punishes.

While these setups won't work on every single cast member, they are applicable to a wide variety of the roster.

The video also shows a number of Dragon Punch, Focus Attack Dash Cancel setups functioning the way they did previously, helping to assure fans that characters with DP FADC setups/combos still have some of the same tricks up their sleeve.
