Man, the stat distribution system fucking sucks. You only get a ~12.5% damage boost from a 125 point investment in any damage type. There's literally no reason to spec in anything but ki and health, even stamina sucks because if you have low stamina you can sometimes dodge attacks that have long animations.

If video games has taught me anything, its that even the smallest stat difference can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

You have to spend nearly half the points you get from leveling to max just to get that tiny boost to damage, it's worthless for such a huge investment.

Regardless, it's not like you have to worry about this in official tournaments.

Eh, it's sort of balanced out with the Transformations and the Super Souls.

Any idea who it is voicing them? I'm assuming you're talking about their English dub voices anyway.

No worries, just thought I'd ask. :thumbup: Someone will likely have figured it out soon enough, and if not, the release date is finally almost upon us, so we'll all be able to tell soon enough.

I love Champa's voice
"I WILL DESTROY ALL OF YOOOOOU!" Perfect amount of whining.

That he did. He was also Tapion in movie 13, and...hmm. That may be about it for his DB roles, actually - I started to say he was also Dr. Kochin in the redub of movie 2, but that was Troy Baker I believe.

Off the top of my head, this is Caitlin Glass's first Dragon Ball role though, so kudos to her! I can't wait to hear them both in action.

Ah! I knew it! Universe 6 takes place in AGE 779 as I always thought! Thanks for confirming it XV2! :thumbup:

Now just missing Future Trunks saga to know when it occured. If it happened in AGE 780, then it must have occured in early AGE 780 (like, the very first months, either January or February) because of Universe Survival saga and Bra. But it still could've happened in the very late of AGE 779 as well.

According to her Wikipedia page, she also voiced Dr. Collie's assistant Nan in Bio-Broly!

I'm surprised Champa has a lot of stamina bars in the game when in the actual series it's implied that Champa has low stamina compared to Beerus. C'mon Dimps, I don't like that. First some of the attack colors (something S-P-I-K-E has over Dimps), and now this? *smh*

Oh well, can't complain about it any further I guess, since him and Vados have nice attacks.

Well she's actually one of the character voices in Xenoverse. (Voice 9 if i remember correctly) Not sure if that really counts though.
