The ASW Revelator pre-release stream that I talked about in the previous two posts happened, and they held a tourney with the ArcSys employees! While the level […]

Last week some Japanese players including Dogura, Koichi, and Nage(with an extensive writeup that was translated here) shared their tier lists for Guilty Gear Xrd. So I felt inspired and wanted to make my own! Here it is, made using The Madman’s Cafe tier chart page. For reference, my main character is Millia and I also play Bedman, Elphelt and Ky.

Arc Revolution Cup 2015 concluded this weekend! This year’s Arc Revo was a big departure from previous years for several reasons, one in that the game lineup expanded to 4 titles. Guilty Gear Xrd and Blazblue CP Extend were featured as the main games, but there were also side tournaments for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st]. By popular demand they also changed the format from singles to 3on3 teams, and expanded the brackets to allow 64 teams each to participate! As a result, this was the biggest Arc Revo in its […]
