What is Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator 2?
It's an upgrade to GGXrd Revelator. It comes out on May 26 for PS4/PS3 and Steam on June 1st. It has cross platform online play between PS4/PS3 but not PC. It can be bought as add on DLC for $20 USD or a complete package on disc for PS4 if you don't already own the first Revelator.
-Two new characters Baiken and Answer.
-Character balance changes for the entire cast with many getting new moves, reworked combos and strategies.
-Improved online play, new tutorials and general quality of life improvements throughout.
-Expanded story and arcade modes for Jam, Kum, Raven, Dizzy, Answer and Baiken.
Rev2 is out right now on PS4/3 and Steam! @esrever and I thought organizing some GB Casual Fight Nights during the week would be a fun idea. @esrever also plans to hold weekly tournaments for those interested.
We want to emphasize that the tournament is not the focal point of all this. The casual play sessions are. The goal is to create an environment for those new and old to Guilty Gear to have fun and learn. So if you thought Guilty Gear looked cool in the past but were hesitant to jump in for whatever reason, post here and hopefully other like minded folks will do the same.
Giant Bomb FG Discord Channel
Discord Link https://discord.gg/VAZ5k8f
We have a Discord for people on GB who play or want to learn more about FGs. For Rev2 all communication will take place in the #GuiltyGear channel. If you have a passing interest in any FG or want to watch an upcoming major while chatting with GB people come on by. We have people of all skill levels that play a wide range of FGs. With that said we have gaps in what people play regularly. So if you're really into a fighting game that isn't getting much play on the discord, drop by, build the hype and teach us!
Casual Fight Night on PS4
Please leave your PSN, Steam and Discord name (if you have one) along with your region. Currently PS4 is where the majority of people own Revelator in the Discord. However if enough people show interest in the PC version I will include PC Casual Fight Nights in the future.
@esrever will plan to have Casual Fight Nights throughout the week.
Sunday 6-7 PM EST
Tuesday 8-10 PM EST
Friday 7-9 PM EST
We will post here and on Discord with the lobby details. The best way to communicate during these sessions is on Discord in the #GuiltyGear text channel. Using Discord is not mandatory for these, so if you would rather let your buttons do the talking it's all good. Want to play but can't make it at these times? Hit up the Discord to find games when you are free and in the future we might revamp the Fight Night schedule.
Now it helps that Rev2 has a great online lobby system where up to eight people can spectate or split up and have four separate matches going. So we can have sections with people of similar skill level and let everyone get more games in if they wish.
Rage Quit Weekly Tournament
YOU MUST USE OUR GB FG DISCORD TO COMMUNICATE DURING TOURNAMENT
Congratulations to @esrever for winning the last tournament with I-NO! Past bracket can be found here. Stream archive below.
Rage Quit Weekly Tournament (PS4)
After Sunday's Casual Fight Night we will host a tournament for those interested. You must communicate during the tournament in our #GuiltyGear. We will bump this forum to remind everyone about the tournament at that time. We will begin the tournament after the Casual Fight Night ends at 7pm EST Sunday.
The rules are as follows.
- Tournament will be double elimination, meaning you need to lose to two opponents before you are eliminated from the tournament
- Matches will use the default settings, and be 2 out of 3. Winner Finals, Loser Finals, and Grand Finals will be 3 out of 5. In addition, the person coming from the loser's bracket will need to win two sets of 3/5 while the winner only needs to win one set of 3/5
- Upon losing a match, the losing player may switch characters if they like. However, the winner must select the same character.
- Players are responsible for reporting their own scores on the Challonge page. If you have any problems doing so or you accidentally enter the wrong score/winner let me know during the tournament so I can fix it.
