YES! Roshi is coming in! I will definitely try to get him in a spot of my main team, as an alternative option.


Though, my apologies. I am a bit out of the loop, how is Omega Shenron confirmed?
There was audio data datamined, where Gogeta talks about his stiff shoulder or something that he said to Omega in GT.


It seems Roshi leak was a fake: https://twitter.com/DbsHype/status/1262927149608177671
D'OH! Ugh...


Well, so by that note, it seems that the Omega one is real, if it hasn't been debunked as such.
Pretty much a guy who has been really late on catching up with Dragonball and Fighterz.

I'm really not an expert on the matter, but I like to think.

I have to say that 18's quote is too unique to be fake.

Anyway, considering that Omega's next and there's another character coming (Pikkon?), they might announce Roshi in a year or something, so of course they're denying the spoilers.

Of course it's real. Gogeta's audio was found in the files.

Awww man! I was really hoping for Roshi the most! Don’t care much about Shenron, but why not, GT Goku has to have at least some adversary :)

Don’t care about Paikuhan at all, he is just Piccolo look alike with Android 16 (and now Tenshinhan) voice actor.

Do Moro! With new voice actor, exclusive character. Manga crossover. Would be nice to have the Super continue in this form and give us something unprecedented. Janemba, Cooler and Broly were good for nostalgia, but Paikuhan feels more filler than main character, he is not even in Xenoverse...

Moro would be an interesting choice. However I think a lot of people don't follow the manga, which would make them go "Moro who?".
Not impossible but rather unlikely unless the anime is coming back and they go all in the marketing.

I myself would rather see Dr. Gero or Mr.Satan before a bunch of other characters.

But still not enough to reach the 20 millon zenis for the trophy :(

UI Goku to Beerus: "The gap between us is getting smaller and smaller."

I really like the dialogue in this game.

I like all of it in the game. It is a quality and not quantity...
Today, I have discovered that Kefla mocks Piccolo, that Namekians from Universe 7 are weak... and he replied back snarkily at her.
All this little stuff makes the game for me playable still... I never really put this game down since the release, only for other online games like Battlefront 2 and since I have got Platinum and only things that I can get is just few cards and outfits, I went back to FighterZ with UI Goku release. I really miss true outro animations in Xenoverse (not that there is true intro animation either) and here I get both plus I love how characters comment to the rest of the team on scoreboard. It is just fighting game with story mode, but details like this give it so much fun and content.

UI Goku is crazy... I have got quite hang of him and he can be pretty surprising to both me and the opponent with re-appearing on different spots when fighting, like his overhead kick coming from above the opponent. Also, after I thought I know everything about him, I've seen some new techniques coming from this guy... It is fun character, altough he feels little overpowered.
I really love the EoZ color scheme on him and using him as main. If this game had at least one true alternate skin for more character like Videl does, that would be wild.

On the other hand, those prices in the special shop and for the trophy rooms are outrageous... one million zeni for ONE SONG?!
Damn, even Guilty Gear wasn't that punishing as you could afford one song after one arcade mode playtrough.
They shall introduce something for farming money at least, because if you are victorious in online, you get like 30 000 Zeni before the opponent ragequits, or do not make much if losing, one Arcade mode can get you around 10 000 Zeni and the special events like now with UI Goku, will also get you around 30 000+ Zeni on one victorious playtrough and maybe some extra with items.
This way, you won't unlock all the stuff before the game dies.

Tried out some UI Goku and he seems really damn cool. I don't think I'll pick him up myself, he has an impressive kit but at this point I feel set in my ways. I've met a fair few online already as you'd expect, and I'd say two thirds have been pretty easy, while the remaining third have kicked my shit in. That's always the way when a new character comes out, you'll get a bunch of people taking them into ranked before they fully know what they're doing. And the ones that stick with it will be terrifying a couple months down the line.

Incidentally, maining Hit for almost two years now, plus some brief dalliances with Cooler and Jiren has taught me something- give someone a counter, and they'll want to use it every chance they get. The amount of times I've stuffed up a Ui Goku just by doing a basic cross up and pausing. A surprising amount will smash that 6H and leave themselves wide open. His blockstrings are pretty average except for the flip, which is nonsense. It can be 2H'd, but it's very easy to whiff that with him bouncing all over the place. That said, I think once people learn how to deal with flips, he's going to be a lot less scary.

Further in-depth breakdown of UI Goku counter stance. There are some situations where you can get very minus frames of advantage and how it be beaten by autocombos & grabs :wink:

Yeah that was my experience with those UI Gokus as well. They love that counter, because it can be used against almost everything. I just wait, then dunk.

I'm not really in the realm of... Possibly even intermediate (Super Saiyan 3), so it's possible that these are new people that want to win using new, unfamiliar toys.

I'd say these lower level Gokus are kind of a godsend because of that, if you decide not to buy him. You get to experience more of them and how to counter them without getting obliterated.

I mean, that's always the way when a new character comes out. Most of the ones that struggle will drop him while the ones that commit will be rewarded. I'm Majin rank now, but I've been skirting the edge of deranking lately. My last few sets against other Majins haven't been great.

With his counter, it seems like a higher risk/reward compared to Hit. Yes, people can bait and react to it much easier, but he can turn it into a full combo if he lands it right. Hit's essentially acts like a free vanish but you need to spend a bar to turn it into a combo, and even then the damage will be low from scaling (his ground counter I mean- his aerial S is the tool of the gods). Whereas yeah, someone can vanish, jab or block Goku's counter depending on what they were doing, but if he catches them in something with a lot of commitment, he can go to town on them. Not to mention the mind games of counter vanishing and reacting with that unique tech of his. Hell, you can even double-counter if you catch them mashing.

Incidentally, this is why everyone was right to call UI Goku a better Jiren. Jirens counters were the worst of both worlds- the capacity to bait and react like with Goku, but also the poor damage ceiling of Hit. At least they upped the damage for them in season 3.

Is there a place that keeps up to date with the new season colors, free zeni and such stuff when they come out?

If we ever get Paikuhan I hope it is on his without his weight clothes as no fighting game have ever introduced him with that outfit.
