    Maybe put your PS4 into a DMZ just to be sure?

    Anecdotally, the patch fixed things for me and I couldn't get one match pre-patch, outside of tournaments.

    Just got a match and it played fine. So I dunno what's going on. Tourneys work mostly ok for me, so it's just ranked and player matches just like everyone else pre-patch.

    Does anyone know what they actually patched? Because I can see they've removed the ability to search for ranked matches, forcing you into practice warm-up. Which isn't helping my patience as that takes forever to find a match.

    I assumed it was just that. My guess was that before the patch, by the time you'd pressed X to start a match with someone on the list, so had 1,000 other people and they had already accepted a match with someone else.

    Maybe it's the same problem I'm getting as pre-patch then, and I'm just monumentally unlucky.

    I just got another match, so I'm thinking it might indeed be that.

    Playing on PC, I still get some games not connect, but on the whole that's probably only about 10% of the time. Nothing too tragic.

    So I need to drop Claudio. Muscle memory isn't there yet, and I'm getting spanked like a newborn. I should really just stick to one character, and Miguel makes sense as he's the one I have prior exposure to. Plus Miguels Rage Art is the most damaging in the game, and looks hilariously brutal.

    Forget everyone else, Lili is my girl, she has the most awesome moveset ever! Breezed through treasure battle to Grand Master without getting defeated once and kept Dan 3 easily so far in online ranked.

    People just can't seem to deal with her sidesteps. And since at this skill level almost noone uses sidesteps (yet) one of her biggest disadvantage (bad tracking) is a none-problem.

    Why are some of the 10 hit combos not 10 hits?

    Maybe they are binary?

    I got kicked from a tournament after making it to the final with the host angrily typing 'do you know how do do anything other than grab'

    King is my main.

    The correct answer to this is
    'Yes, but until you show you can stop me Im just going to keep doing it'

    If people don't know how to break kings grab, especially his fucking complex one where all you need to do is bind 1234 to a single button and mash it... Well, yeah. Low tier. Wouldn't worry about them.

    Been playing this a lot. Pc ranked I'm up to

    Fighter with Miguel
    Brawler with Kuma and Dragunov
    Grand Master with Gigas and Shaheen

    Serious character apathy though. I keep flitting between. Should learn to stick to one!

    The thing that pissed me off most is I am very conscious not to spam the same moves over and over because online is full of that crap and I hate when people do that to me, so I try and mix things up as much as I can to keep things a little fresh and not annoy people. Unfortunately yes, King is grab heavy and I do know the throw chains.

    I have not bound 1234 to one button. I didn't know that would even do anything worthwhile! Shoulder buttons are each bound to 2 buttons however.

    Haha, fucking hell. That's not one of the ones I know, I've been trying to learn that the hard way in practice mode!

    Well, for anyone struggling with breaks...



    Short version? If it's a left handed throw, break with left punch. Right handed, right punch. Both hands? Both punches.

    Get it wrong the first time and you can't break.

    Chain throws can be broken but there is a small window for it, so mash the shit out of the break for the timing.

    You make that sound easier than it is though, or at least for my shit reflexes.

    I can barely recognise that the opponent is grabbing me until the proper throw animation has started and it's too late to tech. No way on this planet will I ever be able to react to whether it's left or right-handed!

    You have about 14 frames to react once grabbed. I think it's 14. Either way it's 50/50 if you can't tell.

    Just don't press kick, or you're fucked.

    That said, I hate spammers, but complaining about being grabbed all the time when fighting King is really dumb.

    Maybe Messi should stop using his feet all the time in matches too? Fucking spamming cunt :D

    14 frames is about 500 too short for me :)

    It's quite a long amount of time to be honest for a fighting game. All you need to remember is 1, 2 or 1+2. You'll get the start of the throw animation and you can tell from that if it's same side (1 throw) or side switch (2 throw). May not help with command grabs, but if it's a multi grab just hit 1+2 repeatedly to break.

    Been keeping playing this since I snatched it on the Steam sale, and I have to say I love it. The Rage Art shenanigans isn't as intrusive as I feared as it's blocked easily and not used that much in real life.

    Tekken 5/DR was the last one I played before, and the biggest improvement I believe I feel is that 7 seems much more balanced. 5 was awesome but character balance was just stupid iirc.

    However, I have to mention 7's soundtrack. God is it awful. Fucking hell. No hyperbole this time, I've tried to think of worse game soundtracks in the past, but this is genuinely among the worst game soundtracks in my 30 years of gaming. When trying to think of another soundtrack as bad as this, I have to try to recall shitty NES or C64 games.

    Fired up the Tekken 5 soundtrack on Youtube, damn that was pretty awesome. Bought that soundtrack on Amazon and will probably play that when playing Tekken 7.

    Does the PC version not have the Jukebox on the main menu?

    I picked up the PS4 version in the current PSN sale and it has the option to replace the soundtrack with the soundtrack of any previous one

    The Jukebox feature is a lifesaver. The old soundtracks are classics (especially the first two games) but oh golly, the fucking sounds of T7 are anything but.

    A pity that of the few tracks not featured, my favourite (Yoshimitsu Tekken 2 console version) is among them.

    Still my mind is boggled by how bad this soundtrack is. WTF happened?

    Having brostep in your game when it was a thing was a terrible idea. But having brostep in your game that saw its console release in 2017? WTF were they thinking??

    I mean, if you enjoy being whipped or sat on your face or being pissed in your face... fine, I won't judge. But if you enjoy having your fingernails ripped out, or having someone sticking their finger in your bum and scratching you from the inside until it bleeds, or listening to brostep, fuck mate you need to see a psychiatrist.

    I think namcos music guy must have left when the 90s ended. They were known for their soundtracks back then.

    He probably realised he couldnít ever top this and left to live as a hermit
