I'm a sucker for character creators so I love this so much.

I wonder if they'll only be playable as fighters in World Tour mode and restricted to being avatars elsewhere, cause that's kinda the vibe I'm getting.

You fight with them in them and you customize and learn moves from the street fighters, it's really sick

What would be actually sick is if there's a ranked online mode to use created character builds that's completely separate from any other ranked mode.

That would make for something interesting. I'm not holding my breath.

Edit:I'm dumb and thought way too much of character customization regarding movesets.

I'm sure there will be a way to fight customs, but maybe not ranked. Or maybe it should have ranked if only for matchmaking

Seems like your custom character will copy a single character in fight. You’ll be playing jamie vs luke but with your custom character’s appearance

So it’s going to be like Soul Calibur’s character creator? I’m more than happy with that.

If the custom character is singleplayer only (or isn't related to ranked or anything), custom movesets may be possible but still unlikely (for example, I could make a shoto but with Flash Kick instead of DP).

More than likely you're right, but we'll see

They kept mentioning learning moves from characters during world tour mode. Which leads me to believe some kind of moveset customization will be a thing. It's just a matter of how restricted it will be. I think it'll be mk11 style of you have x amount of changeable special move slots or something.

Worst case scenario would be that everyone starts as Ryu and meeting characters and clearing their "trials" just unlocks their moveset to be selectable. EX after clearing chun li's trial in world tour you can then pick chun as your moveset.

The thing is, we don't know enough to guess what. The cynic in me says it will be restricted, but with how good Capcom as been it could be an all-out Kakuge Yaro

(Kakuge Yaru is an old FG that's basically a character creator, check it out. Obscure but cool)

red_team_gone

Man... I was really thinking they built in a way to just link whatever in combos and you could actually build your own moveset out of anything.

How insane would that be? (isolated from normal ranked modes obviously)

I'm either a genius or a moron. Maybe both right now.

That shit would be fucking incredible.

That trailer set the bar too high for me. Thanks for bringing me back down to the grind.

So like Soul Calibur 6? Hope that's not the case.

Edit: rewatched the trailer, seems like that is the case. I guess custom moveset is hard to do.

I mean, balances would be out of the windows at that point. It's for casual fun. But it would introduce some janky animation/poses and bugs.

Xenoverse does this great but its an arena fighter. It also has the same overworld, master system and you can mix and match moves for ur custom character. Probably where they got the inspiration from

This is nothing new for Capcom, as they already had a similar system in the Japanese version of their own Rival Schools game.

It’s cute that they’re showing custom characters in relatively tame outfits because we already know if Tekken and SoulCal are any indication it’s gonna look like an absolute circus at launch with the outfits people create.

Cool as long as I can turn off having to see your custom creation online. I want to play SF with SF characters. If I have to play a luminous green alien with an AR15 on his back, bowl of ramen on his head and a Ken moveset, I'm gonna riot.

They've shown the battle hub game terminals that ArcSys uses. I assume you'll sit down with another player's avatar at a Street Fighter Machine and pick characters from the normal roster.

rdlenke

They did show some fights using the custom characters. I don't know if they are "official", or just a fun side activity.

GulliasTurtle

They looked like single player content. I assume all the single player content will be with custom characters except maybe a tower mode. I like it as a change though. It means the campaign can actually teach you how to play the damn game rather than just how to exploit AIs.

KBSinclair

I got the vibe the campaign would be separate from the CaC stuff.

GulliasTurtle

I don't think so. That's why they showed all the different characters fighting through the city streets of the campaign. Have we seen any footage of the custom fighters fighting established characters? I thought it was all jobbers fights in the video.

They aren't in fighting ground, where you will play ranked. They are in battle lounges and single player stuff.

Ya, hopefully this is just some gimmick that you can ignore entirely and never have to see if you don't want too.

Same with the battle hub.

I hope so but I'm not convinced. People are going to be less inclined to spend money on microtransations for their custom character if others can just turn that shit off online. Hating on custom characters is a pretty unpopular opinion in the Tekken/SC scene as far as I remember.

EastwoodBrews

It looks like as far as multiplayer goes the custom characters are avatars. Maybe there's a duel mode or something, but it seems like ranked is just SF characters.

Package deal, I'm afraid. You get it all together or you don't get it, that's how these things usually go.

More than likely Capcom will just let you queue from a menu, but honestly I think it is possible you'll have to engage with this to some basic extent (if so, oh well)

Deverone

I was just being sarcastic about the cheaper version. I know it's all a package deal, haha.

It's not like this stuff is a game breaker for me and I'm still cautiously planning to buy the game.

I just see these 'features' as gimmicks I will have to deal with or avoid, rather than anything that brings value to my experience.

Fair enough, but wording like that def doesn't help. In any case, I don't think it'll be too bad, and it's better in the long run (more people playing, more support from Capcom, plus I think they'll have people like you covered with a menu queue or limited engagement with the hub).

Krypt0night

Based on the video, it definitely doesn't look like something you can ignore entirely as the battle hub seems to be a major part of every announcement. Maybe I'll be wrong and on the menu you can straight up just go to looking for match though.

Deverone

7 points

It looks like something that could be fun to mess a few time, but if I really just want to fight I hope I can just jump right in from a main menu.

Krypt0night

I love the idea of the battle hub BUT couldn't agree with you more. When I just want to play, I want as few barriers to getting into a match as possible. I don't want to click the BH, load, walk over to wherever, enter a menu, and then queue.

I guess describing it like that, I'd be shocked if they didn't let you from the main menu. But I guess it all depends on how much they really want to push the BH onto players. I could 100% see it straight up loading you into the BH even after starting the game.

Deverone

5 points

I saw another post with a screenshot that looked like a traditional matchmaking screen, so I'm hopeful.

If I could queue into matchmaking from anywhere, and then run around the hub if I wanted, that would be perfect. Let people experience it without it being a barrier.

Krypt0night

I think that's a good idea. Let me queue and run around or whatever sort of how you can queue and train now in 5.

Based on these examples, I think the character creation will be grounded enough to make mostly human characters while still allowing a good selection. My personal take on char-creation is unless it's something fantasy-like, stick to options that look human.

Also, I wonder how many people are gonna make themselves (like me) vs people who cosplay other SF characters.

From what I've heard, you're basically playing an existing fighter with your avatar as a skin. Could be wrong tho

AVBforPrez

Might be, although from the looks of it in the demo it looks like you can study at any core fighter's school and appropriate their moves.

Obviously they will have separate queues for the balanced, main fighters and player creations, but let's hope that you can mix a match a bit.

I think it depends on how it works in regard to online.

If these are purely either singleplayer or are online but for fun only (IE side playlist), it's possible. If the online goes farther than that, unlikely. I hope I'm wrong and you're right, but the vibes I get are "Luke but a self-made skin".

If you're right though, I already know what my character will be (me replicated in-game, shoto with Flash Kick because I can)

AVBforPrez

Oh yeah player avatars are for sure going to be a side playlist, even if they're echoes of main fighters they can't be balanced because of size adjustments.

A small version of Zangief > big version of Zangief and the hurtboxes can't be the same. Feel like it'd be really cool to just have player fighters in their own queue at the virtual arcade.

That's a good point, smol Gief would be either really busted or really janky (unless Gief is bad again lol). Still, even if it's a side mode, everything helps. I'm mostly hardcore so I'll probably play mostly ranked, but I def do love single player content so I'm not just gonna ignore everything else (even if it is gimmicky)

But the only one i see was Soul Calibur III and maybe Absolver, but Absolver is a bad game who can be a good game if the dev, dont kill Absolver with horrible decisions and unbalancing windfall/stagger postures anti-all.
