I find the whole "look at this modern teenager who is an '80s retro fan" concept really shitty, but whatever. She looks like a mix of Guy and Ibuki. Juri looks damn good.

Right, all the way back when we got the sheet with one sprite for everyone, I figured they just didn't remove him from the files, but I didn't check if the leaks gave him new sprites ?

I barely did the first two levels this morning, but the SFV cast won't get far with the amount of damage you take if the healers still get worthless after a dozen levels. You'll just waste 3 characters per level, and we don't have 150 A7 characters yet. Okay I'm at 30 and EX characters shred through everything without taking much damage, and heals still work. The new enemy traps are frustrating with low rarity characters, but they're okay with stronger characters. The buffs are good too, speed and crits everywhere.
Obviously that means all the gold units are still useless because they take tons of damage right out of the gate (apparently balance doesn't exist), it's too bad because the first version was nice to play old units and see how far they got, but if you have a stack of EX units, you'll be fine (so far, I haven't finished it yet).
Actually I wonder, I'm not seeing a real spike in difficulty like back in the second version they had (just more and more enemies and traps), so maybe the speed buffs can help you use old / gold units in later levels ? Very unlikely but it would be cool.

I'm watching the Jojo ASBR stream right now and it's such a shame they didn't think of the commentator voices thing that SF6 is doing, they would all have to go all ORAORAORAORA and DI MOLTO on every single super and then crack up, and everything else would have to be a meme quote like "oh, you're coming to me" and "but I refuse", that's how commentator voices would add to the hype for real LMAO I really don't give a shit about the SF6 commentator tracks but for this ? Instant buy.
(is it too late to make it a DLC ?)

It's been a week and four pity selectors (I didn't give Khronen a try and I haven't even touched the cards yet) and I still have not rolled ONE copy of Shermie or Choi. Fucking hell.

all the extra content goes into DLC instead of be unlockable content as it was before
It's pretty obvious that the budget is not the same. They budget content for the base game, and then they budget more content for after that initial content is made, with money that doesn't come from the base price. Unlockable content in old games was obviously budgeted as part of the initial game.
The shift here is that the content they can make with the initial budget from the base sales numbers comes out smaller than the content that could be made before, so they make a first batch, and then everything else is budgeted with DLC sales.
Believe it or not, there's definitely extra work involved in making the Orochi versions of CYS and converting Geese's team with new outfits, and that work is budgeted with DLC sales.
It's not rocket science.

that DLC spot could have been used
It's 2022, who still believes that a DLC spot could have been used for someone else instead
It was a massive disappointment for everyone when it finally sunk in that the roster was slashed down from the previous game, but to look at one specific DLC team and be disappointed by that team ? Why aren't you disappointed in the Geese team ? Why aren't you disappointed in the final 4th team ? Why this one ? The Orochi team has a big fanbase and they were basically guaranteed since the ending of XIV. This reaction is just super weird.

Since just now, they revamped all the shops. I'm still not touching the championship or its shop (even if it has gold hammers now), but I appreciate daily epic quest tickets being made available in the league shop (I'm at lv80 for those buffs, I'll be getting that Phantom Igniz soon... any day now... just wait a bit longer... I have no idea what the fuck they were thinking on that one)

One new feature is redeeming 4 10x Summon Token for Units and Cards, all for 1 in-game coin that recharges daily!  This is the biggest gain for all players and should be taken advantage of at all times.
Where ? It better not be in the Guild shop... But if it's for the unified banner then it's basically garbage so whatever (I have 163 silver summon tokens for units, and 246 for cards, and I never bought any from any shop, it's just sitting there doing nothing).
Gato has a change-up kit bought with memories, so be sure to get Signature memories at any cost for his awaken enhancements and not his own memories (although I don't know if his summon banner will have infinite repeats).

Comic Con happened. Multiverse Saga announced.

Phase 4
2022
She-Hulk trailer has Daredevil's red and yellow suit at the very end. Also, Wong again.
Wakanda Forever trailer : end of Phase 4. T'Challa's mother is the queen, Mbaku is probably the next Panther (or the next ruler of Wakanda ?), but Shuri likely takes over the Panther later. T'Challa's son is born, and the blue whale-riding people are descendants of the Maya. Doom is expected to be hinted as heading the soldier villains, and there's also an Ironheart introduction (just Riri on the forge, no armor).
2023
Phase 5
Quantumania : February. I saw a poster with what is presumably Cassie in costume with Ant-Man and Wasp, but I'm not completely sure it's a real poster.
Secret Invasion : Spring. Apparently there was a trailer shown or something, it will not be made public, but Everett Ross is confirmed to be in it.
Guardians 3 : May. Possibly a teaser was shown, but not made public.
Echo : Summer. Daredevil confirmed.
Loki season 2 : Summer
The Marvels : July
Blade : November
Ironheart : Fall
2024
Agatha Coven of Chaos : Winter
Daredevil Born Again : Spring. 18 episodes announced ! I'm wondering if that's because they don't need all the CGI like everything else so they're going ham on it. (Speaking of CGI, I just hope they hire more people instead of the talks about overworking their studios that have been going around lately, it's not like they don't have the money)
Captain America New World Order : May. Who knows if the title is another fake-out, like when they claimed that CA3 would be Serpent Society but then became Civil War.
Thunderbolts : July. Presumably the fallout of the "New World Order" with, most likely, Val at the head of said new order. Also the end of Phase 5, so it's really taking the spot of an Avengers movie while there's no new Avengers team formed ??
Phase 6
Fantastic Four : November
Multiple unrevealed spots in Fall, Fall, Winter, Winter, Spring, Spring
2025
Avengers Kang Dynasty : May 2025
Two more unrevealed spots in Summer
Avengers Secret Wars : November. Same year as Kang Dynasty, yes.

The cartoons (X-Men '97, Spider-Man Freshman Year, Marvel Zombies...) are not included in that list but some stuff was shown, and Spider-Man has Amadeus Cho, Nico Robin, Chameleon, comics haircut Doc Ock,  and Norman Osborn taking Stark's spot in May's living room, so it's definitely an alternate Earth, and the cartoons are probably all outside MCU's 616. Apparently Marvel Zombies will include post-WandaVision Wanda ?? And Simu Liu's Shang Chi is in Zombies too, with one zombified arm but everything else is fine. The guy working on Armor Wars went on Twitter to say don't worry, Armor Wars is still on, so it's probably one of the Phase 6 spots.
There's a couple more trademark leaks, like Captain America Red White and Black which shares the name of an Isaiah Bradley comics run, and Nomad, but those could be red herrings to fuck with us, so who knows if there will be limited series about Isaiah and / or Bucky as Nomad.

Having more grappling supers should mean they'll move away from modes relying on giant bosses that can't be grabbed, right ?

Maybe not because someone like Blue Mary has her stun fang core effect that requires opponents that can't be grabbed, and Angel has a similar one.
Maybe, but I don't know. BMary's Stun Fang works great for her *specials*, especially in awakening, and her 3PG card isn't a grab ; Angel's poison is fine for her specials, but for her 3PG, it's kind of shit, because the supers have pathetic damage (the meta is 5x DoT explosion on specials) so they are only meant to waste time to help everything else go off cooldown. In BMary's case, the 3PG card works to waste time (and it boosts the rest of her damage), and her regular special is a grab that becomes another Stun Fang for bosses (making it useless). But in Angel's case, the 3PG card is a grab, turning it into the bleed damage (not even extra poison explosion), which is pathetic. Her regular special is the one that wastes time. Meaning her 3PG card is the one that's useless - except for the crit / atk boost on the card itself.
If those cards become nothing more than extra stats and a move that does shit damage for giant bosses, then they're really not worth much. The only use is in PvP.

There's a lot of room to give some changes to skills.  One concept I hope they tackle are Status Moves.  Let's say if Hwa Jai ever makes an appearance, one of his skills gives him the ability to consume a bottle that greatly alters his other skills while increasing cooldown to the Status Move.

If they introduce something like this, it probably would require A5. And would be the "bonus" EX skill like max mode, concentrate, etc...
That one sounds great. Make the ex modes be more diverse for everyone.

I just noticed the arrows could be hinting that Lady Choi might have a new mechanic where she can move after she uses her skill #2 and special move.
Yeah that's what it looks like, in the super she moves in the same direction as the big blue arrows which indicate directional input.
Hoping Gato does join but I'll believe it when I see it. I like everything in that trailer. Having more grappling supers should mean they'll move away from modes relying on giant bosses that can't be grabbed, right ? I'm fine with dream match improvements but I hope it doesn't shift everything on PvP because I don't care for it. I'm not even touching Dream Match. Hopefully they got the message from the bingos where they tried to make us interact more with the guild and it caused a backlash and they had to scrap and replace those missions... Please don't try it again.
