Actually, we got our first when Yamcha beats Nappa.

^ Yeah, Dbzfan94 already corrected me about that. :)
I had completely missed this one ever since the game's release.

The fact that they allow themselves to have imaginary scenes leaves more possibilities than if it was just about sticking to the original scenes.

Note that imaginary scenes are about the good guys winning when they originally didn't, and not about the bad guys winning since I guess it would be distasteful to create scenes to show our heroes being gruesomely murdered in a nightmarish turn of events.

Since we know about the upcoming characters, my guess is that we could have:

[spoiler]- Vegetto vaporizing Boo just as he could have done and demonstrated on a tiny part of him.
- Vegetto finishing Fused Zamasu with the Final Kame Hame Ha just as he was about to when he defused.
- Trunks finishing Fused Zamasu with the sword of hope (almost guaranteed given the datamining)
- Beerus destroying Fused Zamasu like he did with regular Zamasu.

- Base Goku and Base Vegeta having their special intro.
- Base Goku finishing Nappa with the Kaioken.
- Base Goku finishing Base Vegeta with their iconic blast struggle.
- Base Goku "finishing" Freezer with the Genki Dama.
- Base Vegeta finishing Ginyu, with the latter trying to take his body and ending up in a frog thanks to Goku's intervention.

- Goku finishing Cooler with a Kame Hame Ha in his giant sphere that sends him to the sun (they already have the sun from Broly's scene).[/spoiler]

Much more uncertain scenes would include:

[spoiler]- Cooler "finishing" Piccolo by "exploding" him in front of Goku just like in the movie.
- C-17 sacrificing his life against Cell (covering both his move in DBS and C-16's original intent in the story, though the chronology would be completely off having DBS C-17 versus Cell, but oh well...).[/spoiler]

To be honest, I hardly see more than one Dramatic Finish available for the final two DLC characters likely planned, but it's possible the Dramatic Finishes could be conceived for other characters already available if they don't have many to do for a DLC pack.
After all, all elements are here for Freezer destroyed by Blue Goku when Blue Vegeta was about to kill him, for example.

If we're gonna have more imaginary finishes, let's get dark with it

[spoiler]-Cell defeating Gohan in the Kamehameha beam struggle
-Kid Buu pushes the Spirit Bomb back at Goku
-Goku Black killing Goku/Future Trunks with a Super Kamehameha Rose
-Broly's could be either beating the Family Kamehameha or his punch connecting with Goku followed up by an eraser canon or something[/spoiler]

I hope #17 will also have his new moves from the ToP arc. It would be interesting, if he could set up barriers anywhere, and move independently from them.

Also, what do you think about Cooler, how would he work in the game, and what would make him different from Freeza? I assume, summoning his elite soldiers would be one of the things, so he could play like a mix between Freeza and Captain Ginyu.

Could be a counter build character.

I was cautiously optimistic for how Bardock would play in this game, but he's even better than I hoped. As much as it pained me to do it I had to dump Vegeta and his amazing assist from my main team to make room for him. Broly also looks like a ton of fun to play. Really feel like they knocked both of these characters out of the park. Really excited to see how the other 6 turn out.

Based on the results of Final Round 2018, I'd say this game needs a balance patch before Evo 2018 comes. There's already complaints about SSJ Vegeta, Adult Gohan, Goku Black and Cell being too dominant and common at high-level.

That won't happen with Fighterz, the patches will prevent that.

Yea, I am sure they will patch this, cause some characters do look better than the others if you're watching tournaments, but thats only if you're a meta player. And thats like 0.5% of people. For casual players it doesn't really matter. I have over 500 wins and just about 150 loses online and am not using none of those top tier characters most of the time.

Practicing Teen Gohan's bomb loop combos for a few hours. Damn, trying to utilize it effectively with online lag is nearly impossible, makes me not want to even bother lol

Looks like Bandai Namco is giving away 300,000 Zeni today, as a gift to celebrate the release of Bardock and Broly. All one has to do is connect to the online lobby and you'll receive it.

...Which...probably means I can't, if the online lobby is anything like the Xenoverse 2 one where you're not truly online without PSN, but ah well. :P Figured I'd give everyone else a head's up anyway.

Apologies for the double post, but huh...popped in FighterZ on a lark, and I CAN connect to the online server there (just can't play matches against people), so that's a win. 300,000 Zeni to get more stuff from the store with, woot.

That's a pretty good mod, but shouldn't that go in the Fan Works section?

That's always been my issue with online in fighting games. Not to good at adjusting to the lag and for some reason the match maker is always wanting to set me against people that are forever away. Basically stopped playing SFV because of it. Tried playing for the first time since Fighterz came out, waiting 10 minutes, got connected with somebody on the other side of the planet even though I had best connection only selected. Took about 3 seconds for our characters to start moving after the announcing said fight.

In practice mode you can actually add online lag. It's not a perfect solution but it can certainly help getting used to it.
If you're not here soon... GET ON!

Unless there's some major twist, all data found so far point to:

[spoiler]- Bardack (already available)
- Broly (already available)
- Vegetto (probably Blue, but no proof of the transformation state yet)
- Fused Zamasu
- Base Goku (Saiyans / Namek arcs)
- Base Vegeta (Saiyans / Namek arcs)
- DBS C-17
- Cooler[/spoiler]

It comes with:
- the main avatar for each character.
- additionnal avatars to unlock for each character (including alternative colors and forms, such as Base Broly and Super Saiyan Bardack).
- the first six colors for each character.
- six additionnal colors to unlock for each character.
- one sticker offered for each character.
- additionnal stickers to unlock for each character.
- a handful of new, impressive Dramatic Finishes (no less than four for the first pack alone).

Btw, do we really have to keep those in spoiler tags? It's not like they give away key-moments from a storyline.

About 17, what is your guess, what the shortened name 'AVP' stands for. (Hint: it's not Alien vs. Predator)
I guess A is Android, and P is park-ranger. But V? Version?

Why not simply going with 'A17'? It's unlikely that they will include another version of him.
