I love the Tekken series. It's my favorite fighting game by far. I bought Tekken 6 recently and loved it as well. I even liked Scenario Mode and got the platinum after a short time.
So after the platinum I was planning to spend hours upon hours on the addictive Ghost mode, just like I did on Tekken 5: DR. But I reached 1st Dan with 2 characters and never got a promotion chance again. I searched the internet and found that 1st Dan is the maximum rank you can get offline (yes, apparently this is in the game manual too).
What the hell am I going to do now? They just ruined the best mode ever made in a fighting game. I don't want to spend my precious game time by fighting lagged online matches and waiting for people to accept matches and all that stressful online issues. And I don't want to force other players with better internet connections to play against me and get frustrated by lag just so I could rank up. It's pointless.
I'm really dissapointed. I thought Tekken 6 was the best figthing game I ever played until I discover this. This sucks.
So anyone also think this 1st Dan limit must be removed? What about us offline players? Can't we just have our fun alone?
Please raise your voice if you agree with me.
I sort of agree with the OP, but not exactly.
In 5R, your offline rank and your online rank were separate. But, it appears that hey made the Tekken 6 offline modes with no real difficulty setting. If you boost the difficulty to, say, Ultra Hard, your opponents don't magically get better - their ranks are higher. That would mean that your offline rank has actual value. So, this time around, the offline rankings carry over into online play. And with this limit, you can't beef up your rank and look awesome online.
I will say this: I can't see how a fighting game fan could prefer fighting the computer over real people. Especially seeing how the American arcade scene is all but dead...
ha! the ghosts go so much higher! I've beaten like...it said juggernaut? I don't know how high, but it was red on black text and it was on hard, that was when I was 7th kyu with Law.
Now I'm 1st dan with law, still on hard, fighting master dans, juggernauts, I think one said ninja? I don't know, but they go a LOT higher than 1st dan.
I agree ,but I see what they are trying to do. 1st Dan is a 1st degree blackbelt. So it's kinda like, you learned all you can learn in the dojo, now go out and use it. Also what if it's just that no one has made a 2nd Dan ghost yet.
Ah, good point! And that actually sounds pretty cool!
it would be cool to be able to graduate through battling the CPU. "Master Mechanic" (sounds like a trophy name) would be earned if you can beat any two (or three) fighters you mechanical enhancements (or are just straight up robots) 3 straight times in 4-round matches. I would be happy if that was just a trophy actually, and there was "earn trophies" mode in the game.
Ok time to talk.
The reasons why 1 dan limit must go away.
1. I defeat many players they will send me hate mail.
2. The ghost battle is totally ruin without the offline ranking mode.
3. What if I for get to pay the internet bill
4. I have other things to do with my life than to play online all day.
5. Lag is not fun at all, it does not matter how good you are.
6. Virtua fighter 5 on Xbox 360 has offline ranking, I bet Virtua Fighter Final Showdown will have it too.
7. Namco you are going to go under if you continue to make bad games.
