Sorry for the low skill levels demonstrated in this vid! Just happy because I've been practicing with 18 this morning and managed to get a 1v3 comeback against someone two colours higher than me.

Favourite parts are the raw L3 sparking read and me getting lucky with the dropped sliding knockdown combo at the end.

The guy was salty after this and didn't rematch.

As a fellow 18 player I love seeing vids like this! Two things I will say though is work on learning blockstrings with her, she's absolutely terrifying to block with all of her mixup options and also make sure you're making use of assists too!

The thing is that at this point, it’s genuinely difficult to make really bad decisions. Go with Ryzen or 8th gen Intel. Get a board that works with the chip you bought. The chips are all good. The boards are all good. The only differentiator between boards is size and whether you want higher end components to do extreme overclocking someday (which is mostly not useful, but can certainly be fun if you’re into that kind of thing).

Get a couple of build lists from r/buildapcforme and just do it.

Yeah I'd definitely already committed to doing a Ryzen build and I'd also like to get an NVME SSD drive because I've always had incredibly slow laptops and I feel like I move my files and data around a lot more than other people because whenever I see drives brought people are always talking about how most people wouldn't notice the difference but considering how I'm being bothered with incredibly incredibly long wait times for moving files, I think it'll absolutely be life changing.

Could you describe the types of file migration you're talking about? NVMe drives are mostly useful when moving very large files. Moving a large number of smaller files doesn't see the same impact (if I recall correctly). Simply migrating from an HDD to a normal SATA SSD is absolutely life changing.

Well its depends but mainly large file wise there's a bunch of different ISO images for various things that I'll either be moving to or from flash drives when I'm trying out different Linux distributions. The time really adds up there but I also do have a ton of backup storage on various drives that I'd really like to consolidate in one place

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.

  • I'll be needing to use it for work, school, and gaming with hopes to have the option to at least play most if not all current gen games at preferably high settings. I also would like to be able to dualboot with Linux as I'll be needing access to it for classes.

What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?

  • As I've already purchased or been given a few pieces, my budget is tight but on my timeline is flexible as I've been lurking on buildapcsales waiting for deals for quite sometime but just haven't been able to commit when deals pop up as I've had trouble determining what constitutes a good deal for me even something is seemingly quite popular on their

When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.

  • I already said it earlier but my timeline is quite flexible as I've already been in the process for sometime but I'd really like to start making some serious progress and potentially have everything within this month or the next

What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (Tower/OS/monitor/keyboard/mouse/etc)

Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?

  • I'll be purchasing in the US in Arizona where there doesn't appear to be any microcenters

If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.

  • They're included in my hyperlink above but currently I have a ASUS VG245 24" monitor, a Corsair Strafe RGB MX Silent keyboard, and a Fractal Define S case with a window.

Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?

  • I'd like to be able to overclock in the future but it's not a priority. It would definitely start with my GPU though

Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)

  • Replace this text with answer.

Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-tower/full-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?

  • I already have a Fractal Define S case with a window for this build so no

Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?

  • I have a free Windows 10 OS from the Insider program

One of my best friends chucked an unopened can of coors at my chest the day we met actually. I've also had a full can of dr. pepper throw at my chest in highschool. The bruises were perfectly upraised where the rim on the cans hit with the soda it was a half circle and the coors the full circle as the bottom hit me flat. Both times were up close, point blank throws. Both times I had the absolute wind knocked out of me and it hurt everytime I breathed. Goddamn it was so fucking painful. 😖 I don't wanna think about a fucking case of those coming at me

Wow this looks awesome! I love the premise! Thanks for posting! Really hope this gets picked up

Last time when I posted about completing this combo for the first time someone had commented that I could fit one more 17 assist in before the Dragon Rush near the end but I couldn't get the timing right until now. For anyone who's unaware but interested, the key to the timing is to Use 214M as close to the ground as you can get and then to DR right as 17 lands the first hit. It's pretty tight but speaking as a total novice when it comes to fighting games it seems a lot harder than it actually is.

Yo! That was me that commented about the extra dragon rush lol. Good stuff. This is pretty much identical to my 18/Goku/Vegeta corner bnb

I dunno, obviously I can't speak for everyone but I've never had a real problem with getting a refund from a bad seller. I just throw the purchase on either my paypal or a credit card. Usually paypal if I think there's no reason to be overly concerned, or credit card if I think I'll need someone other than eBay to reverse the charge.

Recently I purchased a $500 1080Ti and got a tacklebox and had no issues. Same with a "like new" oculus rift, and few other random things. Probably the biggest hassle is if you actually have to ship it back, but they make the seller pay shipping. The rift I had to go find a box that would fit everything since he didn't send in original, and the 1080ti the guy was in China so had to wait for him to fail to send return label.

As someone that's not only fallen for personally but has also posted a link on here to what was a hacked listing for a GPU, the processing of waiting for PayPal to refund me took over a month still even though eBay became aware of and removed the fraudulent listing within minutes of my purchase

2 points · 1 month ago

That sucks, but with Paypal you don't pay interest for X months or a min. payment for x months if over a certain amount. Could depend on credit though, so might not be the case with everyone. Of course, don't risk money you can't live without in case something bad happens. Just my own personal experience is that if the price is super low, I don't mind "risking" it.

see more

Oh it wasn't on credit and it wasn't money I couldn't live without at the time, I'm just saying although I didn't really have to worry about not getting my money back, it's not the same as calling up your bank to get an overdraft fee refunded. It's on paypal and eBay's time and however reliable it is by no means a quick fix

Ooh, it’s on Netflix (DK). Now I know what to do tonight

Where??? It's only on Hulu in the US :(

I 100% agree with you. My buddy mains 18 and a well placed assist from her is insanely good. From what I gathered, she isn’t used a lot because her assist doesn’t deal damage on its own but when my friends gets a solid assist off with her he basically gets a free combo. It’s absolutely insane!

Other then her assist I am not sure why a ton more people are not playing her!

see more

Outside of professional play she's great for online where people use blockstrings as something you wait out and immediately counterattack so with 18's assist it's incredibly easy to make unsafe actions into baits

I fought an Android 18, Broly, Android 16 team the other day. My opponent used Android 18's assist as cover during Broly's blocksting and baited me into getting hit confirmed almost every time with it. 18's assist is deadly if used correctly.

see more

This seems like an incredibly dangerous combination because of how large Broly's hitbox is. I'll have to test it again but 18's assist timing is difficult because of she doesn't follow you so it's really easy to move out of her coverage but then adding in large hitboxes like Broly and Cell really negates her assist usefulness

Recently got into fighters thanks to DBFZ and I've been looking to branch out into similar games and I think I'd really like Skullgirls from what I've seen but I don't have a lot of money to spend and I don't wanna buy it if I won't have anyone to play with. I'd really like to get into Marvel vs. Capcom 2 but I know I can't get it online and I haven't found a physical copy. So if there any Skullgirls Xbox one players here who could give me some insight that'd be great but I'd also love some recommendations in general if possible please

You should ask r/Skullgirls for that. I know that the PSN community has a Discord server, but I don't know about the XBL community. Just like on PSN, with PS3 and PS4, Skullgirls players on 360 and XBO can play together, because it's litterally the same game. (backward compatibility)

Thanks! Any recommendations for other games to look at?

Killer Instinct. Mandatory. Especially if you have an XBO.

After that, I don't know your style of fighters and I don't know if there's enough people playing other fighting games on XBO.

Sorry I thought I put it in the post but Dragonball Fighterz was my first real fighting game and now I'm pretty much looking to get into what I've been missing out on for all this time
