Even if you're moderately skilled at using the new melee system. Is it possible to fight off and hold your own on more than one opponent? So say if 3 people are swooping at you. Hit the first with simple melee to knock him back and get him out of the way for a moment. Throw the second, and combo the third. Would that work? If not, what would be the best method to do it?

The way you explain it, yes. But you cant fight two people at the same time in advanced melee.

If you're considerably better then your opponents, I suppose it's possible.

Well, I can't say for sure, but I don't think you could do that to three seperate guys, you would get pre-punched by one of them. I think the best choice would be to adv melee the first guy as none of the other could hurt you and until after the fight, in which cae they would have been blown back(I think) *EDIT:Whoops! Seems I was both beatin to the reply AND wrong. Oh well. :]

If you're considerably better then your enemys though, you should beable to knockback one and then start prepunching + throw the next one right after without getting hit... I would actually just skip the last step and throw that player into the last one to blast both of them back.

it is possible to take on more than one player. but it will be more difficult than in 1.1 now of course to take on 2 or more people you cant lock on so you need 1.1 melee. you would just swoop at them and 1.1 melee them and while they fly backwards just 1.1 melee the other guy. and if your getting tired and want to fight 1 person cuz they double team adv. melee them yay. but i have a question

In the manual it talked about if someoen is swooping with 1.1 melee, and the other with 1.2 adv. melee, the one doing 1.1 melee goes first then the guy with adv. melee goes. how does that work since 1.1 melee makes you go flying backward. it wasnt explained very well in the manual thanks (just hope it doenst turn out to be like howing :p

1.1 melee blows you back when it's 1.1 melee vs. 1.1 melee.

The prepuncher gets hit in the face (stunned kinda), and then the prepuncher attacks back.
HOWing isn't an issue at all. In 2 out of the 3 modes both players take damage. The only mode were there is one winner is the prepunch vs. prepunch struggle which has those series of blocking directions.

Sweet. No more being called a HOWer... LOL! Got a question. In the next release or later release. Will you be able ot take on 2 other players simltnaously(spl?)? That would be really cool to see. Shows how "skillful" you could be. :p

Am I right in when 1.2 melee is vs. 1.2 melee, it results in a struggle, where a stream of arrows shows? The most correct ones lets the person win and let them do a combo right?

Not happening, if two people started jamming directions in at the fastest speed possible, you would get about 9 directions per second. Regardless of your skill, you cannot block 9 directions per second.

Yup, you're right.

Worth a thought. :p Would be pretty cool to see that from a spectator's point of view. :smile: Even though the person blocking them would be on the brink of insanity from pressing 2 directions for each attack. :laff:

What happens if both players get the same amount of directions correct? Taking into account the least possible scenerio.

Yeah, after the second round it will just break up the melee fight.

Ah ok. :D Cool. I don't know if you all know this, but the manual isn't accessible. At least for me. I get a Page Not Found error. o_o

So is it possible for someone outside of 2 others fighting each other in 1.2 melee to say hit one of the fighters with 1.1 so that the character hit is knocked away or does that sphere thing make them invincible from anyone accept for themselves, of course.

When you are 1.2 vs 1.2, you are invincible.

hmmm,

You alredy said Joe that there wouldn't be a way to do a 1v2 melee fight. but...

What if the players took turns. Like the first second or whatever the first guy selects the attack, the second second or whatever the second guy selects the attack. And on and on untill pre-punch is over. Im still not totally sure how the 1.2 system works ingame, but um...would that work? and a way to make it harder with 2 v1 would be to make more randoms appear?

What this game's next step should be is a faster way of meleeing, so you can fight like 4 guys in melee at once,rofl that'd be cool
