The fifth volume of EMPEROR_C0W’s Dead or Alive 5 tutorial series has now been released. Featuring EVO 2011 finalist RZR|Latif, this installment focuses on the series’ unique “Triangle System.” The system is the series’ take on the traditional fighting game rock-paper-scissor mechanic with counter “holds” augmenting blocking. In addition to this, the video also goes over offensive holds and sabaki.

Timestamps are as follows.

  • The Triangle System 0:35
  • Offensive Holds 2:05
  • Sabaki 3:33

As with previous installments, you can also access this tutorial via the “main interface” video below.

  • this is fucking complicated


       how so? maybe I can help explain it more.

      • It’s not so much complicated in understanding it, since you’ve made it very clear. It’s just complicated as an overall thing, especially given that you need to apply this in battle constantly. Most fighting gamers are basically used to hits vs. throws, but the holds just add even more complication.
