This is what real combat looks like.

My main man TrU3Ta1ent! I watch him often. Great player and always putting on a good show. He was able to pick up the game fairly quick. I'll say this though, I can't wait until the game is fully released and everyone really gets a handle on the combat. I promise, you haven't seen anything yet. Thanks for posting!:cool:

This is probably going to come off as incredibly arrogant (and maybe sound like a sales pitch), and for that I'm sorry, but honestly compared to the people in our discord this is mediocre at best.

He has almost no consideration for spacing, either for his attacks (so he whiffs way more than he should) or for his location in relation to hazards (which is why he's constantly being tossed off ledges)

Half the time he attacks the stance his opponent is already guarding in. His Raider is particularly awful in this regard. If he were playing Willaguy, for example, he would have been punished every single time he tried his pommel strike (especially because he's not feinting it from a side heavy) and countered. In fact, his Raider is awful in general. Again, no regard for spacing, not being patient, not varying his attacks enough (and yes I'm aware Raider is very straightforward, and I've had arguments with Brando about how viable he is in duels; but not once did he heavy>light>heavy, not once did he dodge an attack and THEN try the pommel strike, he doesn't use his heavy attack range to keep an opponent at a distance)

If he attempted to attack as he did, (attempt to) guard break as he did, stand right next to ledges as he did, he would be slaughtered by Handheld Brando, PowerSenpai, Willaguy, Coma987, or Pandaego. Mathias' Berserker would make him cry. Kaze's Orochi would make him cry. Round 3 of the first Warden vs Warden match where he gets mauled is the sort of punishment that he could expect from any of the Warden players. From one of the Assassins it would be much worse.

Anyway...

Sorry again for being a snob. :p

EDIT:

I'll say this though, I can't wait until the game is fully released and everyone really gets a handle on the combat. I promise, you haven't seen anything yet.

This is a much nicer and positive way of putting what I was trying to get across. At the end of the day, I want this guy to reach Pandaego level of skill, so it's not really my intention to tear the guy down. The criticism above (especially next to Fred's positive messaging) is probably harsh, but it's coming from a place that wants everyone to be amazing, so when I see okay duels being labelled as epic, it's a little saddening.

Again, being rude and snobbish, so I'll stop.

But I hope you guys can crush me in the beta. :D:p

Implying I would be evil enough to make someone cry.

That's always great to hear. I am sure the melee combat elite like Chivalry or JKA veterans will set the pace.

Utopie.

We all had gameplay but some of the guys forgot that twitch removes videos after a certain amount of time if you arent a twitch prime subscriber so most of that footage was lost. All of them had more footage too which was a shame that it was lost. We will for sure have more for you guys as soon as we are able.

Yeah i noticed that when i went back to watch some vids a couple weeks ago. I learned a ton watching those vids and you guys are fun to watch. This game played at a high level is amazing to watch.
