i suggest you think before you post something like that. No offense to ESF, but there are plenty of other good DBZ mods out there...Originally posted by SaiyanPrideXIX
I don't know if anyone else knows this but I think blocks are directional. Cause I realized that I was getting meleed from behind a lot even while I was blocking....
I only mention this cause I read some kid in these forums whining and askign that block have limitations put on it.
Bottom line is when designing a mod, you have to take into consideration the level of player integrity your audience has. Half-Life players have next to none, and 12 year old Dragonball Z fans who make irrelevent requests for a Brolli mode and Fusion to be realistic moves in a computer game where such things clearly are not the primary concern don't have much integrity as gamers either.
Not to criticize, but I hope the mod developers here understand that they did an excellent job with this game, especially in the balance department. And the blocking is no exception: it balances the melee combat engine out very well, I think. And I am a professional designer myself.
I have to say, as long as I"m here...props to the dev team for making the ONLY Dragonball Z-based game (mod or otherwise) that is any good and captures any of the feel of the show. This is the only one. Funimation should buy this mod and pay you all thousands of dollars for the rights, because it would sell. Big time. Trust me.
Well in any case, back to my original point. I'm not really sure if it works that way, but if it doesn't I think that would be a much better solution to block-whoring.
Although personally, I think everyone should stop running to forums and *****ing every time they play a game with some jerk who exploits the features. There are gonna be people who are young, arrogant, or stupid, who play games just to win.
Fortunately, we have here a very revolutionary game, where the kill count doesn't matter so much as gathering the strength to own the server full of people...and the only way to do that is to play the game, power struggle, block struggle, and melee.
So in an odd way, it has this great looping gameplay, something that I don't think enough of us appreciate.
Well, in any case. Good job team, and remember everyone: get that ******* who's whoring on block from behind and see if it works! [/b]
Could you write that any worse?Originally posted by -:SYMBIOT:-
to all those who flame the block move (and i mean blocking for 4 seconds when a guy shots at ya or flies towards you for melee not holding it throught all the game) what should a guiy do if 2 guys are flying towards you to melee you and oh no we dont wanna use block do we the vets would get pissed not cause they double team but cuz you block 4 seconds so you would just take the hit or would you do what i always do (and yes im proud of it) block the one attacker (yes only holding block for 4 seconds) hit and hit the other guy afterwards yeah i kno there surely are some nerds who spend all theyre "life" playing esf who just can hit both with melee and then stand tall but i talk about guys who havent mastered the melee perfectly and guys lets finally open our eyes the dmz chars offent use block like freeza blocked picolos blast and cell blocked vegetas punches and yes guys who block all the times are *****es but i mean is it so bad to block like 1 little punch cause if i block 1 little tiny ****ing punch im called a block spammer!!!!
