2 and a half ways to more consistently shut down Dragon Rush even while playing Dragon Ball FighterZ online

Strategies naturally tend to evolve when you take fighting games online as the inevitable hiccups of lag can make even the most obvious of approaches much more difficult to react to and counter. It's 2020, and that means you're all but certainly playing way more fighting games over the internet than ever before.

Dragon Ball FighterZ has been out since early 2018 and yet one of the game's most routine mechanics, the Dragon Rush, continues to be a frustration for many players. You can multiply this frustration a few times over when playing online, and so RathFGC has come up with two and a half ways you can counter this technique more consistently, both on and offline.

Why Super Dash isn't necessarily a great mechanic in Dragon Ball FighterZ but that's still OK

The Super Dash mechanic in Dragon Ball FighterZ has been fairly controversial within the community since the game's release. Due to its homing properties and its ability to negate certain projectiles, the Super Dash often feels like a mechanic that's very rewarding for new players to use.

BC|LordKnight recently released a video that explains what he doesn't like about the Super Dash (and why it's OK). The points brought up in the video really seem like they echo why the Super Dash isn't universally loved by the Dragon Ball FighterZ community.

Beerus has a devastating touch of death combo that doesn't use supers, assists, or pre-Sparking in Dragon Ball FighterZ

If you're a Beerus player yourself here in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 or find yourself up against a solo God of Destruction as your opponent's final character, you'll want to take notice of this particular sequence.

TaliosDrakei recently shared a gnarly touch of death combo for the powerful fighter that is devoid of any supers, assists, and pre-Sparking. If you land a hit with the proper resources in hand, you can KO your opponent's entire health bar โ€” but you'll need to land Beerus' God of Destruction's Wrath in a tricky way to do so.

Japan's top 2 Dragon Ball FighterZ players finally clashed in the National Championships but their gap in power level is pretty absurd

After losing in EVO grand finals to EG|SonicFox, CO|Go1 made it his goal to be the best Dragon Ball FighterZ player in the world which he cemented by winning EVO 2019 and the DBFZ World Tour Finals earlier this year, but he still has some stiff competition in his home territory.

This past week gave us the final group play round of the Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship which brought with it the exciting prospect of making both of Japan's 6-0 players go head-to-head for Go1 vs. CO|Fenrich โ€” and the results were certainly eye-opening.

Strange 'tech' for Gogeta makes his opponent completely invincible in Dragon Ball FighterZ yet still leaves him in the advantage

Dragon Ball FighterZ players only seem to be finding more and more crazy tech in the game for a ton of characters here in Season 3.5, but it's not every day we see one that involves taking advantage of straight up glitches.

Resident lab monster Rin-senpai recently shared a bug for Gogeta's command grab that oddly makes the opponent invincible to literally everything, but they turn it around to make it an advantage for the character.

What moveset would Hercule have in Dragon Ball FighterZ if added as a Season 3 DLC challenger?

We recently ran a poll asking our readers what characters they'd like to see added to Dragon Ball FighterZ as DLC. Much to my surprise, Hercule ended up decisively winning the poll, beating characters like Omega Shenron, Raditz, Dabura and Pikkon.

Similar to Dan of the Street Fighter series, Hercule (or Mr. Satan) is something of a joke character in Dragon Ball lore. Even when compared to characters like Krillin or Yamcha, Hercule is extremely underpowered.

When things go this perfectly wrong sometimes all you can do is laugh about it; Dragon Ball FighterZ player gets zoned so hard they forget how to play

Every fighting game player has fallen into this trap. You make a few wrong decisions in a row, your opponent has found the perfect rhythm, and no matter what you do it's the exact wrong thing. Sometimes you die off quickly and the round simply ends, but sometimes you're facing off against a cheeky Beerus player who oh so slowly chips away at your health with a zoning game from hell.

A recent example of this happened to a Base Goku user during a recent Dragon Ball FighterZ set with Requiem, and things went so perfectly wrong that we can't help but simply throw our hands up and laugh.

Yamcha learns exactly how NOT to punish Broly's wildly armored lariat in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Broly's lariat special is a legendary super pain to deal with for his opponents in Dragon Ball FighterZ, and this interaction here is just further proof that attack is absolutely bonkers.

A recent video from a player going by DraKo84000 showcased Yamcha in an online match getting swallowed up by the lariat from behind Broly while trying to use his own powered-up signature move.

Dragon Ball FighterZ on the PlayStation 5 sees faster loading speeds over the PlayStation 4 Pro

Last week, we saw a comparison of the load times for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition on the PlayStation 4 vs. the PlayStation 5. Not surprisingly, the PlayStation 5 saw significantly better speeds over the PlayStation 4, but the PC ended up reigning supreme.

Xuses recently uploaded a comparison of the load times for Dragon Ball FighterZ for both consoles. Once again, the PlayStation 5 came out on top.

Dragon Ball FighterZ's next DLC character may have just been hinted at by Bandai Namco Latin America

The world of Dragon Ball FighterZ is buzzing a bit today following a tweet posted up by Bandai Namco Latin America as it might be pointing at the identity of the fourth DLC character to join the game's third season.

The first significant facet to point out here is Bandai Namco LA, who seem to be particularly liberal when it comes to sharing upcoming information for FighterZ. They've garnered a reputation for dropping fairly overt hints about characters like Master Roshi and GT Goku in the past, and though today's post isn't quite as obvious as some of their others, it's worth taking a closer look at.

Which supers are the best in Dragon Ball FighterZ? Jmcrofts outlines a list with reasons

Jmcrofts recently released a video that ranks the top 10 supers in Dragon Ball FighterZ. While many supers in the 3v3 fighting game just amount to being combo enders or a means to switch to another character, there are plenty of supers that offer a lot of utility.

In the video, Jmcrofts notes that this list is not intended to rate a super's "cool factor" or it's potential for raw damage. Supers that didn't quite make the cut for the top 10 but received an honorable mention include GT Goku's Spirit Bomb, Hit's super that allows him to spend all 7 bars for massive damage, Fused Zamasu's Blades of Judgment and Tien's Neo Tri-Beam.

Jump Force accidentally releases Bleach's Yoruichi and unannounced JoJo's Bizarre Adventure DLC fighter into the game before being taken down

Jump Force originally had two more unannounced characters left in their second season pass of DLC fighters after My Hero Academia, Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter received new representatives, but some players got to see them and even play them already โ€” and no it's not another Dragon Ball Z fighter.

Bandai Namco apparently sent out an update to some players by accident recently that contained Bleach's Yoruichi Shihoin and the final Jojo's Bizarre Adventure character which made both of them briefly playable before being pulled down.

Goku Black has a 'secret' 50/50 in Dragon Ball FighterZ and understanding how it works is crucial for any player who wants to level up

Let's make clear exactly what me mean by "secret" before the semantics police raid the comments section. The tech here being showcased and articulated by RathFGC is more commonly referred to as "kara-cancelling" and to understand how it works is to unlock a whole new level of potential in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Using this technique allows certain characters to perform certain actions that are otherwise impossible, and for Goku Black, that includes an incredibly strong maneuver wherein he can rapidly "float" over an opponent for a very quick cross up... or not.

Fan highlights classic battles in Dragon Ball FighterZ clips thanks to the game's clash system

In most fighting games, characters tend to trade hits when they hit one another at the same time. Dragon Ball FighterZ works a bit differently thanks to its clash system.

When two attacks collide at the same time, both combatants freeze briefly and are left unharmed. With careful planning, fans can create epic clips of opponents appearing evenly matched with one another by having their attacks repeatedly clashing.

Nuri's artistic style is perfect for fighting game characters
