Broly has an option select in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 that beats several options including one of the most common counters for command throw

Super Saiyan Broly is a big, bulky fighter who tacks on the damage with powerful command throws in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3. You don't want to get hit by those command throws, so fighting him requires strong reads and escape options for when he puts you in a bad spot.

However, apparently Broly has a strong option select that not only counters several escape options, but also snatches you up if you attempt one of the most common counters against command throw set ups. RathFGC has put together a video explaining how this option select works and how to perform it yourself.

'I want to Super Dash so badly!' - Playing Dragon Ball FighterZ under the Tournament of Power's no flying rules looks like a completely different game

The Super Dash in Dragon Ball FighterZ is seeing a lot more in recent days following Master Roshi's reveal, considering he won't have a traditional use for the mechanic, but how would the game look if nobody could fly?

Rhymestyle and Dotodoya recently got together to showcase just that by playing sets under the Tournament of Power rules from Dragon Ball Super which forbids flying entirely, and it makes FighterZ look like a completely different game.

Kane Blueriver reminds everyone not to save Ultra Instinct Goku for last in Dragon Ball FighterZ with a stylish touch of death combo using 1 Super

Ultra Instinct Goku may not exactly be the same meta juggernaut that Bardock and GT Goku were in previous seasons of Dragon Ball FighterZ right now, but the game's newest character proved himself almost immediately as one of the game's scariest members to fight against.

Former Ultra Marvel vs. Capcom 3 world champion BDG|Kane Blueriver recently showed off another reason to be afraid of UI Goku even if he's the only character left with a solo touch of death combo that hardly requires any resources to pull off.

Here's a possible reason why Master Roshi can't fly and why he won't have a Super Dash in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3

Master Roshi was announced to be Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3's third DLC challenger. The Turtle Hermit is certainly important to Dragon Ball lore as he was one of the martial arts masters responsible for training Goku, the main protagonist of the series.

It was recently revealed that Master Roshi will be unable to perform a Super Dash during gameplay. This is similar to how Videl has the ability to dodge instead of reflect.

Where do the Dragon Ball FighterZ tier lists sit half way through Season 3?

Master Roshi's upcoming release will mark the half way point for Dragon Ball FighterZ's Season 3 which will also bring with him balance changes and more to shake up how the game is played now.

Without offline events this year, it's been more difficult to see the meta changes on the surface, but the introduction of three Z Assists for every character in the game has opened DBFZ up to be even more explosive than its first two years of competition and certainly shake up tier list rankings along the way.

Why is Master Roshi putting his opponent in a jar? If you're not familiar with the Evil Containment Wave, learn some old Dragon Ball lore here

Last week, we got a Dragon Ball FighterZ presentation which detailed many of the updates coming for the game in the near future, including a balance patch, online events featuring a few specific countries who have proven their prowess in the game, new solutions to the problem with rage quiters online and more. The biggest news of all, though, was of course the unveiling of the third character for Dragon Ball FighterZ' Season 3 Fighter Pass, following after the pass' first two additions Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku, with two currently unknown characters still remaining to be revealed and released.

Requested for some time and a big hit with Dragon Ball fans across the world, the new addition will be none other than the Turtle Hermit himself — Master Roshi. Doing most of his heavy lifting during the original Dragon Ball arcs while the series main character Goku was still a young boy, people who opted to focus their viewing experience solely on the Dragon Ball Z portion of the series may not be fully aware of how big of a character Roshi is and what he's all about. A quite welcome technique he showed off in his initial trailer was the Mafūba — known in English territories as the Evil Containment Wave — which is the move we're here to explain the background and purpose of today.

Issues with rage quitting in Dragon Ball FighterZ being specifically addressed, counter measures en route according to Producer, Tomoko Hiroki

There are many praises one could sing with regards to Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ, but when it comes to the way the game polices online rage quitting you're more likely to hear crickets, or even perhaps disgruntled groans.

The 2D fighting game featuring Goku, Vegeta, a bunch of other Gokus, and friends, doesn't currently do a whole lot about players with poor character who chose to leave matches early when they aren't going their way, but that's about to change according to a few statements Hiroki recently made.
