That video has nothing to do with this blog at all.
I've been putting a ton of time into Blazblue lately and doing my best to get the online achievements. I'm level 21 now with a bit over 100 matches under my belt, most of them are spam fests with Jin. Akune and Noel users give me the most trouble and beating them to a pulp it quite satisfying while my best matches are against Rachel and Bang users. My Favorite match ever was this morning against a Bang user and for once I was Ragna not Jin and it was SO close and so intense it'd be one of those matches that gather crowds in an arcade.
See I don't think fighters should penalize us for dropping out of a game. If a match is so one sided you should have the right to leave and not be penalized. One sided matches aren't fun unless you're a super conpetivie asshole who spends half his life playing the game and the other half on Dustloop and Shoryuken.
Said assholes are all over games like Street FIghter IV and Blazblue. In Garou and KOF 98 UM I have only encountered a few of these move spamming jerks. And the thing about fighting me in any fighter is figuring out my pattern. I fight in patterns using the moves I know do the most damage or will keep distance between me an my opponent. These tactics are effective but when I finally find somebody that can counter me the fight usually gets onesided good example is when I use Jin in Blazblue or when everybody else uses Noel. One sided matches aren't fun. I get bored beating people with the same 4 moves fighting Arakune users however forced me to use Jin differently. Now it's gotten to where I can beat just about anyone with Jin and using him is nothing more than a reflex action.
Street Fighter IV has too many Sagat and Shoto spammers if they aren't using them they're either Abel, Zangeif or Honda changing up my game doesn't really help much. I mainly use cammy and there isn't much left with her I haven't tried against spammers unless I have an arcade stick. I don't like to use Ken or Ryu because they just make it too easy ya know?
This goes back more though CVS2 on XBOX and 3rd strike the skills between me and my opponents were so wide open that few matches online in either were fun. While Pros dismiss online I DO THINK these hypocrites are laughing at people on XBOX live.
The key is fun a good even match is required for an online fighter to be fun. I'm so sick of move spammers I'm sick of being a move spammer But as long as there are ranks and achievements...people will spam.
