It is well known and a lot of the hype surrounding this game is the fact that this game is created by fighting game players "a game created by the players, for the players" is a quote I've heard a lot.
They revealed 2 characters at Evo and they have said that they want tournaments to stream this and want hardcore fighters to play it in tournaments. Now this is where it starts to go downhill, the game doesn't have a life bar, it has meter and the only way to kill is to build up meter and activate the super to kill.
There is no way that this can work in a tournament setting because the characters that has the best level 1 will automatically be top tier. The character with the lowest will never see the light at tournaments. I've seen PaRappa easily take out 4 players with his level 2... 4 PLAYERS, that isn't good at all.
Another problem is the fact that its a brawler and its intended to play with 4 players which is very difficult to watch, commentate and understand everything that is happening. How many times have you tried to just watch 1 character during some gameplay? I have and every time I've lost concentration and ended up just watching another character. Just as well there is a 1v1 option but like I said, it isn't the way its meant to be played.
The only way I see this game getting taken seriously by tournament fighters is if there is a mode with life bars because it wont be enjoyable for viewers and it would have to be 1v1.
Thanks for reading. Please leave a post telling me you opinion.
Since the game isn't out yet, there's no way for you to know if the "low tiers" as you call them, just because their supers doesn't look or feel good enough to you, will have great moves to support a character with a great level 1 super.
Right now it's all a free for all, so nothing tactical can come out of it.
I for one will take every online tourney available seriously. 1v1 or 2v2. i love getting to fight someone without interuptions. especially if its good competition and not someone who is easily readable and uses onle forward triangle. 2v2 will be VERY interesting. i think this game with its unique playstyles will offer a diverse match every time.
I dont think so either but you can tell thats what they want.
The studio making the game? Yep. I guess that they are trying to get the game known, which is probably why they showed up at EVO for like 30 mins. That's how Persona 4 Arena is getting more promotion, except their tourneys are very hype. It makes you want to be there.
Is Smash Bros taken seriously... Nope! Sorry but if even Smash Bros can't do it this can't either. I don't care how much strategy is involved it just can't do it. Even good fighting games like Persona 4 Arena, Blazblue, and KOF isn't taken seriously at EVO. That's only because of the anime style. KOF only became serious at EVO because of how the crowd reacted and how awesome the fight was.
Although I highly support even these games ppl just don't take these kinds of games seriously because of silly things like the anime style, 4 player brawler, or some tactic in the game like the break in Blazblue. Look at this conversation with an evo CREATOR, do u really think they'll accept this game if they didn't accept P4A?

[08:41:44] (@MrWizard) with teddie
im going to go ahead and assume most of you all havent played the game, the game is amazing, and super exciting until the timer goes off. trust me, once you've played the game you will understand why it will be at evo every year. i read an article somewhere that said the biggest smash bros tournament (i forget what its called) already wants to have all stars on its circut as well. and just because say kratos has the best lvl 1 doesnt mean anything, everyone can dodge, or interrupt supers. you wouldnt be on the pro circut if you couldnt, and if anyone has played me on the beta they know im the ish. if you can kill me 3 times in any one match you deserve an applause
