Dragon Ball FighterZ needs a buff in the form of quality of life changes according to The Cool Kid93

Dragon Ball FighterZ might just be the best fighting game out right now that's focused on the Dragon Ball series. Although The Cool Kid93 believes that Dragon Ball FighterZ is overall "good," he has noted in his recent video that some quality of life changes could make it tremendously better.

Predictably, one of the biggest issues with the team fighting game is its online experience. It's become quite apparent just how "terrible" the game's netcode is thanks to COVID-19 shutting down most offline engagements.

Gogeta has a mix up in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 that technically shouldn't exist — here's how to do it

With Dragon Ball FighterZ's Season 3 update, Bandai Namco made a conscious effort to remove fuzzy guard set ups from the game. Where an instant overhead would previously hit and open an opponent up during one of these set ups, now the rising attack will simply whiff.

Despite this change, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Gogeta can piece together a set up that retains similar properties as old fuzzy set ups and makes for a devastating mix up. RathFGC shows us what Gogeta's "forbidden" mix up is in this new Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 video and how to perform it.

Almost half of players use Ultra Instinct Goku in the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship but there's fascinating differences between regions

After seven weeks of preliminary competition, the finals for the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championships are now over half way over, so this makes a perfect opportunity to delve deeper into the evolution of character teams and the differences between these five regions.

What probably comes as little shock is the fact that Ultra Instinct Goku is by far the most popular character choice in the championships series, but the United States, Europe and Japan certainly have different ideas when it comes to building out the rest of their teams.

This Z Assist in Dragon Ball FighterZ is said to be broken but might be overrated

Similar to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 3v3 fighting game where teambuilding is incredibly important. Selecting the correct assists might actually be even more important than using the right characters to use on point.

Base Form Goku's Spirit Bomb charge might initially seem like one of the game's better assists, but BC|LordKnight believes it to be overrated. In his recent video, he refers to the assist as being the most overrated in the game.

How might the one-armed Future Gohan play if he's revealed as the next Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC character?

There are certainly a few other potential characters in the Dragon Ball universe that seem to have better chances at being selected for the remaining Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 spots, but there's certainly a nonzero chance that Future Gohan could be following in the footsteps of Kefla, Ultra Insinct Goku, and Master Roshi.

What might this alternate timeline version of Gohan play like if he indeed does make his way into FighterZ? YouTuber Globku has recently posted a video exploring exactly that.

The era of delay-based netcode may finally be over for good in fighting games depending on what SNK does with The King of Fighters 15

The father of rollback netcode, GGPO, first debuted back in 2006 to show the world a widely better way to play fighting games online, but even as soon as this year, developers have continued to use their older delay-based solutions to the disappointment of many players.

Much of that has started to shift over the past two or three years, however, and now the fighting game community is looking at a potential / probable timeline where no new title is made with delay-based networking ever again — though that kinda hinges on what SNK is planning to do with The King of Fighters 15.

Ryu's one handed kamehadoken and amazing mech Juri are just two examples of Ishiyuki's awesome fighting game art

As a Gouken main from Street Fighter 4 and an avid fan of Dragon Ball Z back during my middle school days, I have to say there's a special spot in my heart for Ishiyuki's drawing of Ryu and his old master replicating Dragon Ball's most iconic father and son moment.

That said, the artists take on mech Juri from Street Fighter 5 might even be better. I couldn't choose one over the other, so they both made the banner image, but there's plenty more wonderful work where these came from.

Dekillsage breaks down his 3 wishes for changes that Dragon Ball FighterZ needs to implement

Dragon Ball FighterZ really opened the floodgates this year with options for players by introducing two more Z Assists for every character in Season 3 plus other long-needed balance adjustments, but that doesn't mean the game is perfect now.

EG|Dekillsage continues to be one of the top DBFZ players in the entire world, and after finishing his initial run of the National Championships with a 6-1 record, he released a new video breaking down the three changes FighterZ still needs to make.

Super Saiyan transformations and flying combat were indeed considered features for Dragon Ball FighterZ but didn't make the cut

One of the most iconic aspects of Dragon Ball Z is watching characters power up and transform into new states like Super Saiyan, Perfect Cell, etc., so many fans were disappointed to find out that Dragon Ball FighterZ would be giving the dozen forms of Goku separate characters slots instead. There was apparently a time where that wasn't exactly the case, however.

FighterZ Producer Tomoko Hiroki recently confirmed that transformations and flying combat were indeed scrapped ideas that the developers talked about or worked on in an interview during the DBFZ National Championships.

Dragon Ball FighterZ mods: WarGreymon, Sonic the Hedgehog and... half-dead Frieza?

If a fighting game can be found on the PC, then there are likely mods for it. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting game that's both on the PC and has access to some killer mods.

Himeos recently posted a clip that showcased a match that features WarGreymon, Sonic the Hedgehog and... Frieza after having been chopped in half.

Spanish Dragon Ball FighterZ champion achieves Ultra Instinct transformation for himself with the riskiest galaxy brain read possibly ever, seriously

Ultra Instinct Goku continues to be one of the biggest threats in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3.5, but he may be pretty much unstoppable if the player using him also achieves that transformation of the body and mind like we saw this weekend.

VGIA|Shanks will likely go down as having one of the greatest plays in the history of the fighting game after pulling off a truly ridiculous read during Spain's finals of the DBFZ National Championships.

New Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 character announcement is coming in just a few weeks, release window revealed

It may feel like just yesterday, but Master Roshi released as a DLC character for Dragon Ball FighterZ almost three months ago at this point though there won't be much more of a wait to see who's coming up next.

Prior to the start of the Spain playoffs for the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championships, Producer Tomoko Hiroki confirmed the next Season 3 DLC character will be revealed during Japan's finals in an interview with hosts Tyrant and Damascus.
