Comprehensive Evo Panel Overview

[ Edited ]
38 replies 684 views Edited Jul 8, 2012

The panel has just finished, and for those who didn't watch it, watch it here : http://ja.twitch.tv/srkevo3/b/324019839?utm_campaign=archive_embed_click It starts at about 2:15

 

 I'll try my best to summarize most of what they said in a brief post.

 

GAME MODES

1v1

2v2

Stock

Reverse Stock (kill limit)

Arcade

 

SURVIVING SUPERS

You can survive a super like a boss by avoiding, evading or countering a super with another super.

Note that all supers are unblockable, and that the level 3 super is uncounterable (is that a word?).

 

COMBOS

All characters are very well capable of pulling off extraordinary combos, contrary to popular belief.

They showed videos of examples, and let's just say it was pretty incredible.

 

RIVALRIES

Each character in the game will have a Rivalry in the Arcade Progression mode. Each pair get a special cinematic cutscene showing how the two interact. The example they showed was Heihachi and Toro. It's pretty neat.

 

FINAL BOSS

There is a final boss confirmed in the Arcade mode. All they said that, "If you're a fan of Playstation, you'll love it." Gee, I wonder who? *cough*KevinButler*cough*.

 

GAMEPLAY

Since some people are concerned with the lack of a health, they believe the game is far too bland. In truth, there is sort of a health bar in the game. Essentially, your opponents AP bar is your health bar in reverse. The closer they are to filling it, the more likely you'll die. Superbot has stated that their goal is not to make the game play as close as possible to Super Smash Bros, and that fans should expect pretty much a new unique genre of fighting. 

You cannot do 3 level 1 supers with 3 bars of AP. You can only do the super that corresponds to what level you're at.

 

FORUMS

Superbot has said many times during the panel that they frequently read the message boards. Whoever was worried that Superbot doesn't listen to us, don't be. They also check their twitter apparently.

 

SOUNDTRACK

The music is said to be incredible. When asked if they planned selling the soundtrack, Omar replied, "If they don't, they should."

 

DATA COLLECTION TO IMPROVE BALANCING

Apparently, Superbot is able to collect data from online matches and decide what seems fair and unfair. They're able to make fixes without patching.

 

INFINITE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM

After racking up a certain amount of AP from a combo, the victim will be launched and be in an invincible state. It borrows this idea from Marvel VS Capcom to avoid cheap tactics. 

 

This is all the information I can remember. If there's anything I forgot (which I probably have), let me know with a reply and I'll add it to this post.

 

The panel was very enlightening and I'm even more hopeful of this game. If you're reading this Superbot, I hope you know that I appreciate all that you've done! <33

YES.

We see gameplay being played by pros with experience with the game, not amateurs who are playing the game for the first time.

Really shows the competitive nature of this game Smiley Very Happy

yeah..thats one of the things i hate about the message boards on other websites. There are posts like this game looks slow and boring. Well yeah i'm pretty sure when you first played call of duty you werent drop shotting and rushing the other teams spwan. The more time people play the better they will become so obviously to noobs who have never played are going to make this game look a little 'slow'
