The server/my connection is killing me. EVERY TIME I do the Online PQ 4-star mission "Earth in Danger!" and enter the first portal, I disconnect. It has happened 5 times now.. it's impossible for me to do that parallel quest offline by myself.

Just wondering if this is right for a level 36 male Saiyan.
Health: 15
Ki: 13
Stamina: 20

I'm thinking of getting the Dragon Balls to redistribute my attributes.

I tried playing with a balanced character, but it's useless for the harder missions. You're gonna need to pour most of your points into Ki Blast Supers, so you can spam them in SSJ mode and do considerable damage. That's the only way I was able to beat some of the harder story and PQ missions. That, plus playing with other people online (for the PQs).

Being balanced is the worst way you can go sadly...

I went:
  • 13 Health
  • 13 Ki
  • 10 Stamina
  • 95 Basic Attacks
  • 6 Strike Supers
  • 100 Ki Blast Supers

Finally beat the story-
And there's lots of stuff from Dragonball Online that hasn't even been implemented. I really hope a sequel comes out

Is it me, or does the PS3 netcode suck really bad? Like, it never lags so to speak like other fighting games do, BUT IT SKIPS SO MUCH FRAMES, combos that should work don't, characters can jump out of a string that they shouldn't be able to, a sudden melee clash happens during a string and sometimes super attacks connect when the animation's already finished, It's just wierd and hilarious in a bad way.

That's not PS3 :)
It's the game really... this is one of the reasons PVP doesn't work! I hope they fix it!

Or if you're 20 ft to the right a Super Kamehameha you still get "hit" by it. Sidestepping is not the way, I'm on PS4 btw. It might just be the game.

This game is an absolute bitch to buy an Australia. It's completely out of stock where I live at Big W, EB Games, JB Hi-fi, Kmart and Target. I had to drive an hour away to a different EB Games store where I got the last copy. The game's even been taken off of the JB Hi-fi website for Xbox One versions of the game. What a nightmare, just wanted to give my fellow Aussies a warning about this since the same thing happened with Raging Blast 2.

Yikes.

Just for full disclosure, I'm not the one that discovered that trick about searching for a room online for a PQ you can't seem to beat alone, I was just parroting what was told to me by someone else on this very board. :mrgreen:

:eh: Are you joking? You think 3-4 new characters/variations and 3 new costumes would be given out in a promotional pamphlet?

Goku's new costume for a CaC is about what I'd expect.

How do you change the skills for all of the characters (not customs).

Well, it makes sense. I mean, since they haven't given us any Battle of Gods outfits for any other characters in this game, I'm not exactly expecting Cop Kuririn to get in or anything like that. So that sounds like the exact amount of material I could expect them to add i - ...Oh.

If they give it away in a phamplet, they wouldn't be able to charge for it later as DLC as easily. Well played, Bandai. Well played.

Again, you don't. You can choose the alternate oufits using R1/L1 to toggle between them in which each outfit has their own set of skills but you can't actually edit which skills go in which outfit, so no Super Saiyan for Cell-Arc/Buu Arc Goku, no Galick Gun for Cell Arc Vegeta, etc.

They could easily charge for it as DLC because this pamphlet is so limited. That's simply too much content and they would likely spend some actual time working on what we get as DLC.

Maybe Goku and Vegeta will just get costume variants, but I fully expect God Freeza to be a separate character with a completely new moveset. They could have made SS4 Goku/Vegeta variations but they have their own combos and position on the character select screen. Hell God Goku didn't even have unique supers and he's not a variation.

And if Goku and Vegeta show anything remotely new, they're bound to get that in the game. So it won't be something that can just be thrown into this pamphlet.

True enough. I guess I was overestimating what all they might know about the movie before the rest of us too.

That and there's no guarantee that anything the phamplet gives - mainly this of course - will even be offered after the fact or to western audiences anyway. I figure it will, but that's not the same as a guarantee by any means.

I also notice there's no listing of Steam either, just PS3, PS4, 360, and One. Is Steam not a thing in Japan?

That second issue is also why I'm okay with this. If it remains exclusive the movie, at least we don't miss out on something huge. :P
