Curious who everyone considers their "main" and if any of you changed your button layout or not. The shoulder buttons didn't feel right to me so I changed mine.

Main: Dr. Shoals

Button Layout: D-Pad Down : Dive X-Button : Kick

#2 Posted by Ramone (3076 posts) -

I'm using the shoulders and maining Kick at the moment.

#3 Edited by CollegeGuyMike (398 posts) -

I've been using Baz, and then Dive when I run into more horizontal characters that give Baz issues.

For buttons I use D-Pad Right for Dive and Square for Kick.

#4 Posted by MooseyMcMan (12011 posts) -

I think REDACTED is the one I'm best at, so I'll stick with her.

Using Up on the d-pad for Dive, and Square for kick.

#5 Posted by bobafettjm (1730 posts) -

I have been picking random characters online to try and get a feel for them all, but so far I am really liking Dive. I kept the default controls on the PS3 and use left and right shift for the PC version.

#6 Edited by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

I'm also using mostly Dr. Shoals, with a little bit of Mr. N as well. I also changed my buttons to Down and X.

L1+R1, Jefailey

#8 Edited by StarvingGamer (9186 posts) -

Shoulders on Vita, F and J on keyboard.

I am losing equally with every character so far.

#9 Posted by DarthOrange (4125 posts) -

Main: Dive

Buttons: Right on D-Pad rigt to dive and X to kick.

Right now my win loss ratio 1:1.

#10 Edited by icecreamcohn (41 posts) -

Dr. Shoals

A to dive and L to kick

#11 Edited by MetalGearSunny (7465 posts) -

Kick and Shoals.

X to Dive, Square to Kick.

#12 Edited by TurboMan (8246 posts) -

main: Dr. Shoals. So quick.

Buttons: Left D-Pad for dive, O for Kick

#13 Edited by Zornack (240 posts) -

Maining Dive, using A and B on my Xbox gamepad for dive/kick.

#14 Posted by DarkShaper (1363 posts) -

I'm using left on the D-pad for dive and circle for kick. So far i'm getting the best results playing as Markman but I want to but some more time into REDACTED and Stream before I lock in a "main".

#15 Edited by mano521 (1258 posts) -

what are some good buttons for the pc? i dont seem to be getting a good feel but then again ive only tried a couple combinations. Im using F = dive and H = kick. I dont see that going well for multiplayer on one keyboard.

Any suggestions?

#16 Posted by Kazzenn (189 posts) -


It's been working okay so far.

#17 Edited by ImmortalSaiyan (4748 posts) -

Mr. N and Left Dpad and Circle as Jeff Suggested. It is working so far. I was having too much trouble hitting specials with the triggers.

#18 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2708 posts) -

I haven't tried everyone yet but so far I'm maining Dive

L1 + R1 for my contollers (although I do have two DDR pads I want to try out)

#19 Posted by myzticaznfool (70 posts) -

I am liking Shoals, but don't quite have a main yet.

On controller, I use LB for dive and RB for kick.

Keyboard I use z for dive and / for kick buttons.

#20 Edited by ArbitraryWater (12892 posts) -

I've been using Markman a lot.

A for Dive, X for Kick.

#21 Posted by ImperiousRix (3095 posts) -

I'm usin' a lot of Markman and Dive right now. Looking to maybe get into S-Kill here in a bit.

I use A button as my dive and LT as my kick. Don't ask me why those are the buttons I use...

#22 Posted by MattyFTM (14635 posts) -

Shoals and The Baz are my favourites so far. Been liking Markman a bit, too.

Using Circle and Left on PS3, A and L on PC.

#23 Edited by Amafi (1144 posts) -

Using my fight stick on the PS3 and PC, using left and O on the Vita, still random picking to figure stuff out. Markman, Kick and Redacted are probably my favorites so far.

Picked up wood and stuff for my kickbox today, starting construction tomorrow, hopefully my buttons get here by the end of the week. Also need to get a hold of some plexi glass, something to cut plexiglass with, and steal some art for the thing.

#24 Edited by allenibrahim (383 posts) -

I main Kick because I'm bad at games and I love Kick+Kick gem. And I use Left D-Pad for Dive and Circle for Kick because that's where my fingers feel most comfortable.

#25 Edited by MegiDolaDyne (7 posts) -

Kenny, because I believe that the Spirit Ball is the single best special move in the game.

I play on Steam, and use L-Shift and R-Shift. I find that the keyboard actually works really well compared to a 360 controller.

#26 Edited by JackSukeru (6145 posts) -

I like the way Mr.N sounds the best and the way he plays ain't too shabby either.

I'm using A for Dive and X for Kick on the Xbox controller for the PC version. It can get a little tough to quickly mash jump and kick for some characters otherwise I like that setup the best so far.

#27 Edited by Amafi (1144 posts) -

Best thing about playing on a fight stick is being able to fake people out by hitting unbound buttons really hard and making them flinch when you're playing local vs. It never gets old.

#28 Posted by BeachThunder (13302 posts) -

So, um, can you use alt and F4?

#29 Posted by toolus (122 posts) -

Mostly using Kick. I'm using up arrow for dive and right ctrl for kick on PC.

#30 Edited by Shikon (191 posts) -

the bumpers on my xbox controller ( playing on pc). i started of with The Baz because i think he is amazing but sucked hard with him. now maining Kung Pao love her passive aggressiveness.

#31 Edited by Graham_Nix (118 posts) -

I'm enjoying Shoals' excellent mobility a lot, so I use her the most online. Jeff said on tumblr that Shoals kinda sucks though, so maybe I'll be switching characters soon; I still haven't given the crazier characters (Markman, Stream, S-Kill) a real look.

Buttons: mushy left and right keys on my old keyboard. I'll manage, but I'd prefer the mouse buttons. It's strange that's not possible, it seemed like a perfect fit.

#32 Edited by gike987 (1811 posts) -

Only played Dive's story mode so far so I don't have a main. I'm using D to Dive and K to Kick.

#33 Posted by OurSin_360 (1221 posts) -

Kick, A+B on the 360 controller.

#34 Posted by Nubikal (111 posts) -

Not played much, but liking S-Kill so far. X & Y on a 360 controller.

#35 Posted by BaconGames (3830 posts) -

I main a dive Uncle Sensei with a pocket dive Redacted but I've not really practiced her much at all. After I learned how to play him and had my aha moment with the character and game in general, it's starting to become more natural. That and I feel good with my top 10 online Sensei position :D. Probably won't last but I love that my real goal is being better than other Sensei's and not the best player.

Buttons I use the X and Triangle buttons on my PS3 controller on both platforms. I twist it around and usually rest it so the buttons face the screen and the other side with the D-pad is propped up in between my legs. I like it a lot and prefer it over keyboard. Before that I used 1 and 0 without really giving it much thought.

#36 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -

I main S-Kill, and my current set up on both Steam and PSN are the shoulder buttons, but I'm gonna need to switch the layout soon because I don't think it's doing me any favors.

#37 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Redacted all day.

Left d-pad dive, X kick.

#38 Posted by RecSpec (4658 posts) -

S-Kill, I use the Yellow and the Blue button obviously. (Down and X on Vita, left and right on the d-pad mess me up in menus)

#39 Posted by Dalai (7793 posts) -

I've only finished the Redacted story so far and played as Dr. Shoals and Kick so it's too early to tell. Right now I'm going with the one-handed approach of A and D on the keyboard.

#40 Posted by joey (1030 posts) -

I've been playing a lot of Mr. N, and I am currently using 'z' for dive and '/' for kick (aka 3d pinball flipper controls)

#41 Edited by Shaunage (796 posts) -

I'm using Kung Pao, and playing with the D-Pad Down and A of a 360 controller.

#42 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2740 posts) -

I'm loving S-Kill, Dive and Kick - not sure which I'll main yet as whenever I play S-Kill I feel like I'm trolling.

On Vita I'm using Up and Triangle.

#43 Posted by DystopiaX (5384 posts) -

Kick, default r1/l1.

#44 Posted by Vextroid (1469 posts) -

Main-ing Dr. Shoals and playing using the LB and RB buttons.

#45 Edited by ThePhantomnaut (6283 posts) -

X & O respectively.I like either using Kick or Markman.

#46 Posted by Demoskinos (16434 posts) -

@recspec: Holy shit. Thats a pretty rad stick!

#47 Posted by Lockes84 (52 posts) -

S-kill for sure. The Jeff model: right d-pad and square.

#48 Posted by JuMP (100 posts) -

Main: Dr Shoals

Buttons: L1/R1

#49 Posted by Sbaitso (609 posts) -

Lots of Shoals so far, like Kick quiet a bit as well. Kung Pao seems cool but I'm having trouble figuring out how to build meter effectively with her crazy long kick. and I havent really dive(kick)d into many other characters yet.. I'm on pc so I've been going L-Shift for Dive and R-Shift for kick. If I use a controller will probably use the shoulder buttons.

#50 Edited by Phished0ne (2665 posts) -

Hard to tell who my main is, i've been playing as Kick a lot. But i also like Redacted, Mr. N and Dive so im tuning it down between those. My button config has mostly been shoulder buttons on an xbox controller for the pc, although i've been toying with some other layouts because i feel like i drop buttons.
