Advanced Tips and Tricks for Sword users

16 replies 556 views Edited Jul 9, 2013

I know everyone from the forums already know about the stuff in the videos, but I'm posting it so I can have your opinion.

 

I did the video to help some members of my clan which don't focus on GOWA, so they're not so much experienced. My goal is to help them do better when they play GOWA.

 

Please feel free to comment!

 

This was made with my camera (still...) Smiley Sad

Oh my god...

A video to actually learn people how to jump slice??

But I have to agree it's excellent, even made with a camera this is crystal clear.

Thanks!

@kannay: some people in my clan don't know the JS yet because some clan members play other games as well beside GOWA. I was trying to teach them the moe Smiley Tongue

@NsReal: the move is widely known and a simple action (blocking) turns it useless, so it shouldn't be as much as an issue anymore. But yeah, it's so effective that most people abuse it.

To be more positive, your usage of delayed square made me want to give the swords another go. But I am afraid I'll be tempted by some cheap moves...

That's an issue. If you're facing someone that don't know how to counter JS, you'll end up JSlicing.

But if they know how to counter it, then you'll have to vary your gameplay and do different stuff.

I think swords are boring compared to hammers and spears, but I'm not willing to go through the learning curve of the other weapons, so I'm sticking with swords atm.

I wouldn't call these tips "Advanced" ... but I guess that's just me.
I was hoping for the Launcher + Jump slice combo Smiley Tongue or the Jump Slice fake. Or the delayed square + triangle unblockable mix-up.

Ninja, it's advanced for people that don't play GOWA as main game Smiley Tongue

But I'm not a great player, I'm just trying to help my clan mates.

I know you're far better than me, i've seen you videos, so you certainly know stuff that I don't Smiley Wink

Good video.  Was nice to see my 4th option for jumpslice slightly touched upon.  Also the 5th option with canceling with r1 is good, but a lot of times ends up getting parried like you exampled.

 

Keep digging.  There's hella more broken stuff with that 4th option (here's a hint, it doesnt have to require jumpslice).
