Title: lets have a discussion about P.o.t.S. Style
Post by: Memo on August 24, 2016, 06:16:07 AM
Everytime pots style is mentioned in a topic I feel like peeps get in and start debating and arguing over shit.
First thing that bothers people is just the words "pots style" I consider anything that shares the gameplay mechanics
He put together in a char as "pots style" since it includes all the mechanics he has in HIS what's his name? Oh pots! Characters.
Alot of you beg to differ and say oh that's not pots style, well why isn't it? I know he went the extra mile for accuracy and
What not but lets be realistic we are not all as savy as him nor have all the resources he had or maybe dont know how to use
Them. Come in and share you opinions about the gameplay style pots created get it off your chest and lets end these constant
Arguments and shit, if your soft and your feelings get broke easy this isn't the topic for you just come on in
And get that shit off your chest! Let us know what you like, what dont you like, why you feel like you do let all out!

I'd rather use the PotS originals. Perhaps it would also be nice if they stop sticking the "PotS style" label on their "works".

Everytime I see the words "pots style" I keep thinking "gameplay that varies on the amount of substance inhaled by its creator".

Also can you explain a little more, are sone creators just fucking up certain mechanics from that style or is it the accuracy in chars not matching up to pots standard?

Let me be the first to say no way he is 100% accurate save that for someone like JZ. He literally just "did it first" that's all it is. End of topic. It's kinda like people just bandwagon whatever they "believe" to be some sort of legacy. I didn't even know of the guy nor do I generally care about him or anyone else for that matter. They just happened to learn about it before I did. Take cvs2 slap some High res on it and you got yourself a label. Dude didn't create cvs2 nor any of its mechanics which I swear they believe he did. It'll never end. Too much entitlement. It's no longer about what's fun as time as pasted we've seen that. You aren't limiting yourself by doing something you want to do just because someone else has something to say about it. Don't become like those that do it because they feel it's popular, to reiterate what I had said before regardless of whatever you wanna call it making a mugen character takes time & people forget all about that as well as the actual "fun" that should come along with it.

you got a point, he didnt create any of those mechanics but he brought them in together sort of like a groove system or something that  was unique to his chars at the time.

This is the best comparison I can come up with.

Think of how every unsigned or indie artists puts their influences on their website or their social media page.  That's basically what that term means.  Calling your characters with a bunch of different CVS groove mechanics in one system the style of POTS is pretty much the same thing as saying that your somewhat experimental progressive rock band with psychadaelic themes is inspired by Pink Floyd.  There's nothing really wrong with that, it just means that right now we're in the era of the early 90s where every band was trying to be Pixies.

You have a very good point there too, shit I only released 1 char in that "groove system" lol and I felt at the time like I got alot of attention for it. Nothing wrong with it but I feel you on your opinion I sometimes get tired of something when its really popular sometimes its annoying. Especially when some members start requesting you make this char and that char in pots style, I only did it because I find his chars fun to play with and I wanted to try something new, kinda push myself see how good I can do it myself.

Well if you want to have a balanced mugen, balanced as is all chars have the same mechanics then yes. Some people build a mugen to fight others and its not fair if my char is lacking a zero counter or a power charge like yours might have, shit my char maybe a mvc style one that wouldn't be a far fight would it? But then again theres those that like to mash different chars and gameplay systems together and have crazy fights that's the beauty of mugen your free to play how you want.

Good point. But having a character made in P.o.T.S. doesn't meant there is no other ways to create him anyway, right?
The problem is that really- P.o.T.S. styled characters must have simular system. So, they MUST to play simular way. Like game adaptation characters.

You mean "EX-Groove"? He didn't bring those together.. It was already a thing.. Also most people aside from those such as myself who are just huge fans of the series itself do it for the "balance" aka those who enjoy an experience similar to that of playing an actual fighter be that as it may.. Mugen. It's true there are a few who do it for attention and it clearly shows right? Than there are those regardless of your personal perception actually just are into the fighting mechanics. I already said man. There are those that do it for fun to actually play & use, those that are hype about their coding skills, and those that do it because they feel as though that's what people like.

I like to find chars in similar gameplay styles just because i like that balance. Pots style isn't all thats out there but its the majority so of your like me you probably like all chars in you mugen the in the same groove...ima start calling it pots groove for now on because that's all it is. Its not the s groove r the c groove from cvs2 its pots groove lol

How about this... What did "he" do that was not an already preexisting mechanic? What did he do besides mugenize it? If he even did that 100% solo. Pretty sure he had help from many others. If you guys really knew your stuff you'd know the amount of guess work that was thrown in there tsk tsk.

You will never be able to have true complete balance unless the code is 100% consistent between all characters and the same amount of care is taken for each one.  Considering just how big the number of people making these characters is, this seems like a bit of a pipe dream.

How about this... What did "he" do that was not an already preexisting mechanic? What did he do besides mugenize it? If he even did that 100% solo. Pretty sure he had help from many others. If you guys really knew your stuff you'd know the amount of guess work that was thrown in there tsk tsk.

There is very little actual guess work in his characters.  Everything he put into his work was something directly from an existing game in appearance, function and implimentation.

For me a POTS style char means

1. No Modes but have all moves
2. Have moves across all generations.
3. fair game play

What's with this uniform and balance nonsense these people spew? Put all the POTS graphics characters together and you're not getting anything that's actually aesthetically uniform or uniform gameplay-wise. Even POTS' own characters aren't uniform. Like, compare his M. Bison to his Geese. Putting all the POTS graphics characters sure as shit ain't balanced either.

Why lie to yourself just embrace the chaos and see some weirdo's idea of Hibiki but with a viper beam gun and stuff take on Art of Fighting 1 faithful Todoh like we all used to do.

My actual stance on POTS graphics is I don't really care all that much. Few of them interest me because most of them are the same mediocre conversions of characters we've seen before but with glow in the dark fx.

Do you play SF though? Or CVS? No right? Then that is an honest opinion of someone who isn't a big fan of the series. Who said anything about 100% balance you really didn't even read that before you jumped in. As I said. Because of renown this guy apparently created an entire fight system. You are right about one thing all that name is, is FX.

I'm actually confident I've played more of it than you have.

Like hell I'm expecting 100% balance. These characters are not even remotely balanced with each other at all.

You are right, all that name is, is FX.
Yep. I call it POTS graphics because ultimately the selling point for most is the fx.

Post by: Flowrellik on August 24, 2016, 07:47:01 AM
In my book, POTs style should need a different name. I mean think about it: a combat system that utilizes 3 power bars, EX attacks, MAX Mode or Zero Combo, all round based on closeness to the original character with a majority of their attacks spanning across many games, + Rei uses that for CVSU and was proven to be pretty decent for tournament usage...
I think I might have an idea for a name already. Why not call it CS-System?
Btw, I know this might be a bit of a buzzkill on my end, but has anyone ever tried to make the Hi-res FX pop out more like say using a Trans=sub animation of the projectile/effect beneath the trans = add effect? I'm pretty sure that can help out with a majority of the whole "Stage too bright for FX" problem on a few stages.

But he didn't create a single system.  POTS characters have actually gone through various different systems because he was working things out between them and experimenting.  The style people know of is the one used by Honda, Geese and Cammy.  That and it's a bit difficult to say he created it since it's basically just a bunch of stuff from CVS2 thrown into one groove for better or worse.

All in all.. Don't mean to sound rube about anything. That name is like Micheal Jackson. I'll explain for those that don't know. He isn't the world's greatest dancer, but he is the King of Pop. That renown automatically beats anything out. Exodia. Lol

Yes, this "makes" a "perfect" amount of "sense". Why even "bother" using that "label"?

It's not like it's a very reasonable way to group together a collection of characters with similar gameplay styles that all have derived from the creations of one person—oh wait that's literally exactly what it is.

There's a reason everyone uses the term "PotS style". It may not be an absolutely perfect descriptor for this grouping of characters, but it doesn't need to be. There is a huge amount of variation among these characters, full of subcategories and alternate gameplay systems and weird one-offs and the like; it's pretty natural that any descriptor that links them all together is gonna be overly broad and vague.

But it works. There's no reason to try and give it a cutesy bullshit name when there's already an accepted one out there that everyone already uses.

So, techincaly, P.o.T.S. style is kind of EX-Groove...
Well, I dunno, I don't see a reasot to rename it somehow. Even if he just compilated that style, it was compilated by HIM. But really, let's think about his other characters, which are really not that styled. Like Charlie.
And Alpaca... NO FX OR SPARKS WILL SAVE CHARACTER IF HE IS SH*T. There is no need to find examples- look for Mazamerald's "P.o.T.S. styled" characters.

Most of people know my poision about the style, so, I won't repeat it again. But I share Arpa's opinion in that very few interest me, and only if they're well done (those who know me are aware that I use Karin and Asuna, pretty much the only characters that I use on that style.)

Technically an EX-Groove could be any kind of gameplay style as long as it only used mechanics from CVS2. I could make an "EX-Groove" where the only mechanic is the long jump. I personally made a groove in CVS2 that was as close as I could get it to MVC. I also did that for SF3, which was hilarious and WAY, WAY more game breaking.

Sh*t, men!
Nobody cares who played CVS2 more, it's just unneccesary. Cause it don't make you worse mugenmaker and P.o.T.S. style follower. If to be honest, I still have no ways to play CvS2 even first time... But I'm not worst at it! XD
And yes, style is not original. Yes, everything we saw there can be seen in CvS2. But do this makes style somehow worse to play? No, this style is still clear fun and everyone knows that. In fact, I don't think, that if he has the same looks but worse system it could be that good. Once again, as example MMV's DW's style edit. I still didn't saw any REALLY HQ characters in this style. But that's mainly not only because of changes in style... But still.
There is no need to rename this style, there is no need to change this style, there is no need to even discuss this style.

mazemereld Miyamoto69/chucho?
Their reputation kind of counters the appeal of the fx don't you think?

Like, I remember some really bad POTS graphics Amakusa some time ago with misaligned sprites, helper bugs, none of his original moves at all, and debug flood everywhere getting praised at first until I pointed that stuff out.

"Mazamerald."

Oh, God! Let's try not to get off-topic with that bull-crap. Please?


AHEM! Anyway, what do I have to say about this style that hasn't already (Possibly) been said? It's a combination of some of the best mechanics in any fighting game, one of the greatest things to happen to M.U.G.E.N (Other than Dragon Claw), and it works! It just works! Sure, not everyone is going to appreciate every play-style out there (Including P.O.T.S), but there's no need to be pissy, subjective, and a huge ass about it, neither. Sometimes, a simple "I don't like it" would suffice more.  Anyway, I've said my piece.

Oh, God! Let's try not to get off-topic with that bull-crap. Please?


AHEM! Anyway, what do I have to say about this style that hasn't already (Possibly) been said? It's a combination of some of the best mechanics in any fighting game, one of the greatest things to happen to M.U.G.E.N (Other than Dragon Claw), and it works! It just works! Sure, not everyone is going to appreciate every play-style out there (Including P.O.T.S), but there's no need to be pissy, subjective, and a huge ass about it, neither. Sometimes, a simple "I don't like it" would suffice more.  Anyway, I've said my piece.

Your piece is very dismissive and harmful to this thread, which calls for a discussion.

I bet I made more palette edits than you did even though most of them are joke palettes like "Soft Gay" Akuma and Vice with Nakoruru's Palette map


I want to see these. Only palettes I made were "Dante Rock", Ryu Ken and Ken Ryu and an all black "SHADOW AKUMA" for shin akuma. I got tired of the interface real fast.

I could just infinite you with A groove? A did a play through on hardest with a scrub team using N. Doesn't matter which groove I play. In all serious though.. I'll play you with no groove son.

I dunno dude.  You were talking about how much experience you had and how much you knew the game so I just assumed.  And the groove really doesn't matter to you?  Cause that's a huge thing to consider when making your team.  Some character/groove combinations don't work together at all.  And some characters only work in certain grooves.  I dunno, I guess I didn't get what you were trying to say.

Are you really asking me this? I've probably put more hours into analyzing and disassembling this game than you have playing it. I probably couldn't paint the fence or do any fancy shit like that, but I sure as hell know better than to think EX-Groove is tournament legal. Are you really this stupid?

Also Kim is not high tier, not even in C-Groove (http://wiki.shoryuken.com/Capcom_vs_SNK_2#Tier_List). Stay free, nigga.

Well in CVS2 the high tier characters have a lot of difficult execution things that make them good.  Sagat's roll cancel tiger shots, Sakura's A-Groove combos, etc.  It's nowhere near as easy as you think.

Well, I don't think painting the fence is that fancy, really.

People thinking POTS invented all those mechanics are young, or did no play the old school shit.
Speaking of accuracy Kamekaze and Froz  said pots has done a lot of guesswork, thats not the problem as long as the char playes fine its all right. Rei MJ is the best dancer :P

What emulator do you use to play online?

On topic POTS style as a label just means people generally know some of the features that'll be packaged with the character. As with anything the actual outcome is only as good as the author. And that what's good can also be subjective.

That's why I don't care for constant complaints about POTS styled works every time the phrase is mentioned. There is no way to know if many of these authors would have tried a different theme had POTS style not been a thing. It makes several people happy to play and create and that's all it needs to do. Just like anything else that gets popular.

And lets not fuck up his image by fighting whenever his name pops up.

Everytime pots style is mentioned in a topic I feel like peeps get in and start debating and arguing over shit.
First thing that bothers people is just the words "pots style" I consider anything that shares the gameplay mechanics
He put together in a char as "pots style" since it includes all the mechanics he has in HIS what's his name? Oh pots! Characters.
Alot of you beg to differ and say oh that's not pots style, well why isn't it? I know he went the extra mile for accuracy and
What not but lets be realistic we are not all as savy as him nor have all the resources he had or maybe dont know how to use
Them. Come in and share you opinions about the gameplay style pots created get it off your chest and lets end these constant
Arguments and shit, if your soft and your feelings get broke easy this isn't the topic for you just come on in
And get that shit off your chest! Let us know what you like, what dont you like, why you feel like you do let all out!
I find the level three super portrait is weird at time, I do not know how to explain this, but it feels odd to me whenever the character perform the level 3 super and suddenly a bright orange portrait shows up  :P I actually prefer the level three super effect to be similar like the level 1 (blue) and level 2 (purple)'s super effect, much like Lost_Avenger's characters: http://trinitymugen.net/Hosted/CFJ2/. I would actually prefer all original Capcom vs. SNK's cast to have pots style as it brings a whole new level of the original Capcom vs. SNK and Capcom vs. SNK 2 as remastered version.

I find the level three super portrait is weird at time, I do not know how to explain this, but it feels odd to me whenever the character perform the level 3 super and suddenly a bright orange portrait shows up  :P I actually prefer the level three super effect to be similar like the level 1 (blue) and level 2 (purple)'s super effect, much like Lost_Avenger's characters: http://trinitymugen.net/Hosted/CFJ2/. I would actually prefer all original Capcom vs. SNK's cast to have pots style as it brings a whole new level of the original Capcom vs. SNK and Capcom vs. SNK 2 as remastered version.

I feel the same way too, for my game I have the supers like that, I dont really like the big orange portraits, I'm keeping it simple like I like it like SFA and even yatagarasu where the background just dims a little bit.

I guess people feel attracted to "POTS Style" characters because it opens the door for NEW STUFF.

Let's face it, CVS has been so dead (2D in general) that the only way to season these old resources and make them feel fresh is adding stuff like new artworks in high resolutions, in a presentation that looks fresh.

It's not rocket science, I'll admit CVS style is the best sprites have looked, and also very accessible for people to jump in to make their own characters. It looks anime-ish, it doesn't use colors in a complicated way, proportions are standard for the most part... it's just easy to get behind, and it looks good.

It's popular because it's flexible, accessible and it can look fresh.

CvS2 looks stylish, SFA sprites notwithstanding. It combines the strengths of Capcom's and SNK's signature look and mechanics. Pots was just the one who opened the floodgate to customize it. I honestly don't think it would've mattered his characters were great, as long as they weren't abhorrent garbage. Which they're not of course.

Everyone in a uniform system sounds cool. But CvS remix isn't my thing, I prefer the evil 3D sidesteppers and annie-may. Which includes Marvel.

...

Competitive CvS2: just pick C-Groove Sagat. Why go through painting the fence or sho-sho-ing with Sakura when you can just do the basic fireball-dp strategy with someone who's easymode? Not like you'll be playing an RCer or anything. You don't even need any other character if you're good enough at it, just don't pick S or P groove. Or play King. :(

No one mentioned EX because EX isn't CvS2 remix. Nor is it a sprite game. It also doesn't have Zangief being stupid as shit. And Chun's infinite. EX2+ was better but Excel (custom combo) was real strong. Questioning people's fighting game aptitude is an easy way to trigger a response.

you are a master at rock-paper-scissors and you always throw out a gesture that's simultaneously paper and rock.

That analogy reminds me of an obscene gesture used here for some reason,  ::)

heh

To go back into discussion, many people say "POTS style" when they see :
- CVS2 sprites (or similar),
- High-Res FX with HR portraits as used by POTS,
- The gameplay mechanics included by POTS (parry, roll, power charge, EX moves, zero counter, etc.)
- 6 button character with Capcom-like feeling.

The thing is that POTS went much further than this for his characters : he actually studied the different games where the character appeared, he included all of the moves the character ever performed into a single character (using various modes at times to do so), he extracted data (hittimes, hitpauses, damage, etc.) from the games, the combos from the games work, etc.

Most people don't realise this and just think that using one of his characters as template, they can get the same style. It's not the case if they don't study the games of origin first. If you're just guessing the way the moves should act, create new combos that never worked in any game, or put random values for damage, hitpauses, etc. there's no problem with that, but it's not POTS-style.

Vyn's and Infinite's characters share the same attributes listed at the beginning of the post, but they're in no way POTS-style, and wouldn't call it that.


Same goes for any other style, in fact. If you call a character CVS2 style but are just using the sprites, FX and movelist but are guessing all the rest, it's not CVS2 style. If you're mixing mechanics from KOF98UM, KOF2000 and KOF13 into a single character, you can't call it KOF94 style. KOF Remix style, or whatever, but not KOF94 style.

Still kinda hard to find it all though. But I'm slowly trying to help resolve this. I need to get to work on the mechanics portions of Mugen class again. But have been spending most of my free time trying to get a new character ready for the next HDBZ release deadline.

No need to get so purist :P

One thing MUGEN has never had is consistence. POTS Style offers flashy consistent visuals, easy for people to get behind.

You're not describing how to make a POTS styled character, you basically described who POTS was and what he did to get his inspiration. People can get their own inspiration from their own places.

The only thing we can all agree on is "make the best possible incarnation of the character, add more stuff (preferably canon) to make it more complete", which is basically using MUGEN's flexibility to make cool shit.

You are reading too much into it. You usually do a better jump at averting stuff like this. Who started with the negative comments though? Exactly, but you justify it because you didn't agree with what "I" said? As I said someone always has to be trying to do something. Always way more looked into that what it really is. Like I said actually go & read. You are saying that then someone else is waiting to come in and support that claim solving nothing. Pointless even saying anything.. Conform it however you like bruh. Autocorrect!!! Oh well
I just reread all your posts and YOU'RE the one trying to tell everyone how awesome you are at CvS2 and trying to challenge people to money matches via emulator. Stop acting like the victim here and take responsibility for your posts.

I figure his logic is that he is a good judge of cvs2 related creations due to how much time he has spent playing the game.

However lots of playing and being good doesn't necessarily mean one knows how to break down the mechanics properly and understand how they change the game in large and small ways.

Alternatively knowing how to break down the game and mechanics doesn't necessarily mean one is a good player or spent much time.

So yeah, mentioning it once are twice can get the point across without having to try and prove anything.

I main Rock, Ken, and Sagat in CvS2. C or N groove works fine for any of them, though I usually go with N. K Groove is that Sagat secret weapon. :ninja: Ken can be swapped out depending on how I'm feeling, with either Ryu or Akuma. Though Akuma's low health is a problem. I would like to use Geese, but I can't for the life of me, EVER pull out R.Storm when I want to... So, I leave him alone in a serious competition. Others I like to use are Kim, Joe, Athena, Mai, Ryo, Todo, Raiden, Kyosuke, Iori, Kyo, Chun-Li(kinda)... TBH, I'm not too fond of Chun-Li in that game. She feels very nerfed and plain, with only like two specials.

I didn't realize King was so low tier... :( Never saw a tier list prior to this thread honestly. Sagat is like top tier in every game he's in though lol. That's not much of a surprise. I guess if you can work some A groove magic, Sakura might be pro, but I don't like her. I like her in the EX series though. A and P grooves are the grooves I stay away from. S Groove I may use every once in awhile, along with K. C and N are really the way to go for me though. N groove best groove bruh. Come at me bro. 8)

A character named "Yet another boring character" will get less attention than the same character named "Yet another boring character POTS style"

Exactly. The SRK wiki lists one of Sagat's CvS2 hitboxes as being "invulnerable" on the leg, yet when you actually look at the boxes, there's almost NO invulnerability on said box!

Likewise, I'm honestly not that great at CvS2. I lost at UFO a lot when it still had the machine. I can't paint the fence, I can't shoshosho without accidentally triggering the super, I don't even really have a set team because I hardly get any practice. However, I have a lot of in-depth knowledge, including how dizzy is implemented. I traced assembly instructions for god's sake. I never claimed to be good at the game, but I know a lot more about competitive play because I've actually watched tournaments and am very familiar with the mechanics.

Yeah, it sucks. I'm still thinking about how to approach all that; probably not gonna be using the CvS hitboxes unchanged, at the very least (a shame, since that's only recently been made possible).

I agree with this as well, you don't have to be a top player to make MUGEN characters, you just have to learn how that specific character originally works in the game. Their playstyle, the core mechanics, heck even the little nuances that make them tick, figure that out and you'll be able to see how to apply it to MUGEN. I love fighting games as well but i'm a longshot from beating a top player, I just play them for fun, just like with all of my hobbies.

I'm well aware; I think I've done a decent enough job restoring some of the SNK character's luster with the various characters I've done, but King still needs a bit more work than what I usually do.

Knowing the character and game is not the same as being a top player.  Knowledge is not the same as skill, but skill is not necessary to make the game.  Knowledge however is.

I mean pretty much this, But to be honest you don't really see a flood of P.O.T.S style characters unlike 2 or 3 years ago when Infinite and R@ce were pumping out their stuff.  Even though I'm not a particular fan of P.O.T.S myself, I can see it's appeal.

No disagreeing there. Noticed I worded that part poorly, I meant playing against an RCer. :P

What I mean is, it's not quite as necessary to RC with Sagat to be competent, compared to Bison and select others CCs which is easily their most dangerous asset. His normals are beast, and he does good damage on his own to go along with Tiger Shots and dp. K-Groove Sagat is almost as viable because the already good Tiger Cannon is locked to level 3.

Nah you're right.  Playing Sagat without roll cancel still leaves you with Crouch Fierce and the extremely solid character that comes with it.

i happen to dig P-Groove, it's tha 1 i mainly use, helps you to not be so dependent on meter, & pays off in a big way 1ce you do use meter [if you connect, of course]. my only gripe with it really is that you can't use EX moves with it, since you should be allow'd to considerin' tha source it's based on. i use that, K-Groove, & occasionally C or S. i've never been much of a "main" user/abuser in fightin' game, since i tend to like havin' more than just 1 or 2 options when in regards to char usage to smack some1 around with, lol. i select a handful that i truly dig, & try to be as deadly with them as possible, without usin' cheap tactics or exploits [kara throws, RCs, infinites, etc], since that's not a true showin' of actual skill IMO [even tho some are harder to pull off than others, cheap is still cheap at tha end of tha day].

example: i fought some random cheap dickhead online a few years back on Supercade in a game of SamSho IV, & he used an infinite exploit with Genjuro in tha 1st round, where he grab'd & threw me with my back towards him, then just repeated dash + B [mid slash] til i was dead, then quit tha game. i ask'd him why'd he quit, & his ACTUAL response was, "becuz you don't know how to play, u're beneath me", as if it took some grandiose level of skill to be that cheap & cheesy. shit like this has always made me sad when it comes to fighters [as far back as crouching/jumping jab/short-->throw on SF II], & with cheap tactics now becomin' more of a main thing, it makes me wonder when did folks start becoming more worried about winning at all costs versus winning from actual skill showcasin'. anyhoo.....


i myself dig tha dynamic of a good number of kreations that P.O.T.S. style has been tha influence for [that's how tha best Sagat evah came to be after all! luv yah D-Dubbyah ^_^], & i personally see nothin' wrong with that. havin' a diverse amount of chars that share a similar system in 1's roster is a not a bad thing if tha work is solid [i prefer max mode over cc tho, just puttin' that out there XD], & shouldn't really be frown'd upon as much as it seems to be at times. kreator preference is another matter of course, but overall when some1's body of kreation(s)/work inspires other to kreate also, & maybe even put their own spin to it, whether it comes out good/great, or not-so-good/great, that's still some1's time & effort they put into bringin' somethin' to tha table so-to-speak, & it's somethin' that should be praised &/or encouraged, not knock'd on in a harsh manner.

The only things I were able to decipher from that eyesore of a written passage is that advanced techniques like kara throws are apparently cheap and do not showcase skill.

Also that you apparently didn't know that you could rage explosion out of the infinite and avoid actually somehow getting guard break'd again (If not avoid playing something as broken as Samurai Shodown 4 on supercade)
