Manon's command grab is disgusting!0

As I’d been doing the world tour on controller/modern I decided to also do avatar battles with that set-up and reserve the classic controls for proper fighting.
So I went for the 20 avatar fights/20 avatar wins trophies. First impression - holy shit everyone is already level 60+ after 2 days! I put myself as available and that just invited people with triple stacked health bars knocking me out in two or three hits. Clearly not going to work. So I started looking for people wearing the training gear and pink cap, some of whom were much lower level than me at 17 (check out the massive hypocrite). Had to bounce around between lots of servers to even find places where people were waiting.
Anyway a fair few of those default gear people still absolutely schooled me, to the point that I suspect it was a trap to lure in noobs. However I got 20 wins done in the space of 30 fights, and now I will never touch avatar battles again. Using cut-down move sets with odd execution problems (is there a cool down on the specials, I couldn’t repeat them with modern controls even with drive gauge remaining) and unbalanced opponents is not really very appealing.
I did a few avatar battles to get the Drive Tickets but it's the least fun thing I've done in the game so far.0

yeah parry works well while being zoned from fullscreen… until he lobs the command grab projectile*.
*what an absolute nonsense thing to put in a fighting game. I love it!
That command grab projectile is definitely my least favourite thing in the game so far. It's such utter Guilty Gear style bullshit0
Nice! Just got ranked three star Gold with Guile
Then ranked queued with my newly attained badge and promptly got busted down to one star by an utterly vicious Marisa.
Ahhh Street Fighter.1

I was happy for a few minutes there, but now we're back to everyone hating Blanka
Don't worry, I'm sure when Akuma turns up we'll all have a new ire target.0

Everyone hates Blanka by default so it goes without saying.0
Nice games @imp, I feel like I'm finally starting to get a read on JP1
List of characters I hate so far:
JP (cheap bastard)
Honda (cheap bastard)
Ken (cheap bastard)
Trying to work out how to get in on imp's JP is a massive PITA!
Guile is out-zoned1

Who are you watching for JP? I know Broski was playing him day 1, so he's one to check out for sure!
Also, any fightmans about this morning?
I'm logging on in 15 mins or so, once I've had a coffee.0
Someone mentioned this in the Street Fighter 6 thread, but the last few weeks feels like a proper bit of gaming nirvana, with some absolute classics just depositing themselves into the release calendar all at once. It's been hard to keep up what with the already ballooning backlog because they're so good.
The sun is out but all I want to do is play Street Fighter 6.
What's on your slate? (Not just the poll items)1

I have that, 8bitdo M30, mostly used it for 3rd Strike on Switch. It's superb. Very light too.
Sounds excellent. The weight especially.
I fear my muscle memory is practically fused to the DS4 now, but it's just not a comfortable pad to use for any length of time it seems.0
I'm seriously considering getting one of these:
Anyone used one? What are they like for comfort?0

How do you set it so that it stops defaulting your controls to modern?
If you're in Battle Hub, you can press X/Square - then select a character from the roster, when you're on their character config screen you can then press Y/Triangle to apply the settings to all characters.0
Was this one of you:1

Between RE4, Zelda and this 2023 is my fave year in gaming since 2019 (dmc, re2, outer wilds, disco, death stranding)
It's been an incredible last few weeks hasn't it. And I still need to get to Boltgun and the System Shock remake which are totally my jam.2
Sorry for all the throws, Charley. I blame Lying Cat for teaching me the disrespect.0
FFS, @Lyrical Donut after I drive impacted you I messed up my level 3 super for the match, how embarrassing1
Just had a really fun best of 5 with Donut. Hands starting to shake now though. That'll be the booze.0

Benny's Xcom guy has extremely annoying delayed sonic boom shenanigans that I'm not able to effectively deal with yet. Otherwise, some really good and fun games!
My fucking hands hurt lol more like sonic boomer
That half screen jumping grab is buuuuuuullshit.0
Oh no I just got a friend request from a Blanka player.1
I'm finally in!
Street Fighter VI - Here Comes a New Challenger! PS5, XSX, PC in 2023!
Yeah I'm glad we both agree Guile is bad and needs to be buffed.
