With the amount of systems, depth, and character specific mechanics it boasts, Blazblue can be a daunting game to learn. As I’ve mentioned before, even learning combos has broken some of the mightiest hustlers in the FGC.
That’s where guides like this Spectator’s Guide to Blazblue come in.
Written by Blazblue commentator Ebonic Plague, and inspired by Lolraid‘s Spectator’s Guide to UMvC3, this guide gives beginners and general spectators an easy-to-understand overview of Blazblue systems, mechanics, characters, and even the players. Using this guide, you will come to realize the game is more difficult than what you might be used to, but it isn’t as difficult as you might have perceived it to be. Given the fact that the newest iteration in the Blazblue franchise is a Sunday title at this year’s Evolution, and the Japanese scene is traveling in hordes to compete for it, making an attempt to understand the game will make your Evo spectator experience a lot more enjoyable!
Recall that when you talk about the all-time greatest Evolution finals performances, the conversation will inevitably shift to the Evo 2014 BBCP Dogura vs. Galileo sets. It is one of the best conclusions to a tournament in Evolution history, and if you have never seen it before, I highly recommend you do:
