Dawgtanian: Street Fighter X Tekken's system changes most impacting & potentially dangerous, crucial that every possibility is considered Offering a bit of insight into the methodology used while tweaking Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom's David "Dawgtanian" Hinds recently hopped on various stories here on EventHubs to respond to feedback from the community, and shine the light on subjects related to the balance updates that will be coming in December.

He covers topics like Pandora, recovery being added to rolls, community feedback on the time over issue and much more. Hit the jump to read everything.

I had a feeling this thread of comments would produce the most feedback!

Making system changes are the most impacting, and potentially dangerous thing we can do to the game, it's crucial even the smallest change is made with consideration to every possibility.

You all know I love to use Pandora, it's how I even got into this game. I like the idea of a mechanic that doesn't guarantee success just because you activate it, and when you do succeed you'll feel you truly earned it. Just because it is tricky to use, it doesn't mean Pandora is useless, and every day I've played this game so far, I've always gotten one round at least with Pandora.

Snipeclips' Ultimate Grappler Guide on EventHubs - an informative read for all skill levels

EventHubs user Snipeclips put together a great guide to using grappler characters in fighting games and posted in General Discussion section of our forums. This guide is meant for players of all skill levels and goes in-depth on various topics such as how to properly utilize the grappler style, general strategies and more.

Below is a bit from Snipeclips' guide to get you started.

If you have played huge, slothful characters in fighting games, then you might not find this new. We all know how grapplers work nowadays, being suitable in close combat and patiently waiting for another grab. You must have seen pro players play as grapplers in any game you think of. Then you might know that their best tactic is to grab/not grab as much due to the nature of the opponent consistently being aware of how dangerous a grab can be. This means that the opposing player has to guess and react correctly or else they are done for. The point I’m shedding light upon is that grapplers are threatening the second the match starts to the very end because of the player’s utilization of the character.

Just having a command grab in your arsenal is ominous enough to frighten the other player, so unless your foe is fidgety, continue to play as if you don’t have a command grab, and spring it out when they expect it at the very least. You cannot keep using the same tactics all the time thinking that it will work the minute you execute it, so as a player, you must mix it up and uphold the offensive. In many games there are grapplers with SPDs that are much more damaging than others, such as Zangief’s SPD. It is only there for the raw damage, since there are not a lot of plans to exploit the adversary’s wake up. T. Hawk’s SPD carries out the same intention and more, with his light SPD leaving the opposition in front of you for a 50/50 cross up that can, with precise timing, overcome 3 frame reversals.

Rare spawning God of War chest item in Playstation All-Stars give copious amounts of AP orbs

Examiner posted a few images of the God of War chest item that appears in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale on both the Playstation 3 and PS Vita. This chest is said to be a rare spawning item and when opened, gives out a large amount of AP orbs. It's safe to assume that when this item actually pops up in a match, the player to open it will gain a significant advantage.

Saudi Arabia stage in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 undergoing aesthetic changes

A Twitter user recently pointed out to Katsuhiro Harada that the timed release Saudi Arabia stage in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 contained the name "Allah" on the floor, which, according to the aforementioned user, could be found offensive to certain religious groups. Harada responded reassuring the user that the stage would undergo aesthetic changes in order to correct it.

Below you can find the Twitter posts and a screen shot pointing out where you can reportedly see the name.

Mr.Harada on the Saudi Stage there is Allah's name on the floor! can you please explain why?

Can you please remove it from the Saudi Arabia Stage, it's very offensive to Muslims! Thank you.

We didn't know that. We will change stage design data as soon as possible. We couldn't read that.
