Thank you very much for your response, Rohypnol.
Secondly, I don't quite get what you mean by "key-combinations". Do you mean like "What does 6B, j.2C etc. do?" Or actual combos? >.>
Sorry, i'm not the best at writing english.
With key-combinations, i'm talking about the 632146D moves, it's kinda difficult for me to keep all of them. Also in using them, i like to play Valkenhayn and i can't manage to use his AH spontaneously ( It's 214214D ).
With Jin, i don't have anyproblem because 28D is kind of simple.
But i atleast am able now to use the Distortions in Combat, because they really are important, i think ( Don't forget the epicness aswell xD )
To try and be helpful either way, I gotta say, combos aren't the biggest of big deals. The way combos work, is that they add guaranteed (if you pull them off right) damage on to a regular attack (aka "starter" of that combo). If you, like you said, "usually like to just use all of my abilities sometimes", then you're on the right track imo. Learn how Jin and all of his attacks work before attempting more complex tactics.
I'll do, thank you
Just wanna throw this out there: The tutorial is often times more about insulting you/Ragna than teaching stuff. In super basic terms, a counter hit (often) leaves your victim in a stunned state longer than it normally would, allowing for easier or better combos to be done. Sometimes, a counter hit will work differently, though, and bounce your opponent off the wall when a normal one wouldn't.
Fatal counters are the same thing, just even longer stun/better effects, usually. As for the blocking thing, I was (and still kinda am) in the same boat. Your best bet is just to block crouching and watch for overhead moves. They are usually slower and less common, or have poor combo potential, so it's often the safest route to go.
Remember though, the computer in this game tries to simulate intelligence by, basically, doing good/bad at random times to mimic human error. Because of this, they can (and WILL) bust out magical psychic **** to mess your day up by reading how you're blocking and doing the perfect counter to it.
Awesome explanation, thank you very much, now i understand
Mah boi, the best advice I can give is to just keep playing. Even if you feel like the game is being rather crappy, and you're losing a lot, you're still learning. I can remember spending 2-3 hours trying to beat Unlimited Ragna on easy (or some low setting), and a few months later, I can make a fool out of him on Hell difficulty.
This game, more than pretty much any other (besides maybe Starcraft) that I have ever played, is ALL about practice. Some get it quicker than others, but developing a solid understanding of how your character works, and how to employ said knowledge against your opponents is key. It's not that hard, and comes a lot quicker than it feels like it does.
If you have Xbox live, or just a general interest in some mentoring, send me a PM with any more questions you may have and I'll do my best to answer them. I'm a Jin main myself, and like to think I'm pretty kickass with him, so maybe I'll be of use.
But hey, I hope you found this (rather long... wow) post helpful. Good luck on beating Ragna (if you haven't already), and on learning more in general!
Thank you for the advice, i'll surely keep on practicing, BBCS EX is the reason why i bought myself a PS Vita.
I kind of hope, i'll improve, i also started to play some online games and i won alomost all of the matches with Jin and Valkenhayn.
I don't have Xbox live, but if there appear to be any problems, i'll surely write you a message.
Thank you very much for taking time to answer me my questions, i really appreciate that. And thank you, maybe i'll manage to beat him soon. Did beat him once today, but then he got me twice and after, i again only lost.
