I think matchmaking is not properly implemented yet. Seems like they just match you up with anyone that is also in the queue. Is there even a way to lose rank? So far I haven't seen a way for that to happen, you just gain rank as you win.

You lose a skill point every time you lose a match. I can't remember if that's true for carbon of they don't start doing that until bronze rank though.

Oh so that's how that works. I just hit bronze two days ago and haven't played since. I can confirm that I haven't lost a point for losing while in carbon though.

@starvinggamer: I use both Dauntless and Chel. No mains just yet, just feeling out the game still and these 2 seem like the easiest to learn the game with. I find that I have an easier time crossing up with Chel though. After a hard knockdown I would whiff a light and jump over for the crossup. I guess Chel's Special 2 into crouching heavy ends up with the perfect spacing for that. With Dauntless, I rarely jump at all. I find myself doing a lot of Jab -> Jab -> Cold Drill pressure and trying to land her M -> H target combo.

Oh yeah, Talos's step kick is punishable right?

I would be down for this. Probably the only 3D FF I didn't play more than 5 hours of. Put it on PC please! And FFX while you are at it!

@starvinggamer: He would be if I time it well enough. But usually I'm like a couple pixels in the other direction already when he wakes up, so he would be facing the direction I'm landing on.

Yeah the Chel complaints seem kinda like the complaints of new players who are not used to the fireball game. Her fireball takes so long to recover that a Talos can be 3/4ths of the screen away, jump over it, and his jumping heavy would still connect. That said, like most shotos, she is good.

Speaking of Talos, anyone have tips against Talos's that wake up with a charging grab? I can never tell if it's going to be the anti air one or the ground one. So I either get grabbed mid crossup or when I land.

Yeah Edge's command run into overhead or low gave me a bit of trouble. I ended up trying to neutral jump into heavy them. It was pretty effective against the couple Edges I ran into. I haven't played much Crow yet, but doesn't it seem like he has a very good high-low-high mixup? I played against one and he was all over me. His pressure game was real. And Vlad's Special 3 is an overhead right? Found myself getting hit by it cus I kept blocking low.

I'm still waiting for my confirmation. How long does this usually take?
