Catch footage of the top BlazBlue: Central Fiction arcade player, Ronitta, using Es

By on October 6, 2017 at 8:00 pm

As we’re well into “Season 2” of BlazBlue: Central Fiction, it’s interesting to see how the gameplay landscape has shifted. While the game generally feels more fair for the majority of the cast, one player in particular has risen to the top. The arcade rankings show Ronitta’s Es as the currently highest-placing fighter.

Though the rankings aren’t a clear correlation to a “tier list,” you can see Ronitta’s dominance in the footage compilation from Jourdal below. Es has a very balanced moveset, great range for normals, and zoning that’s actually difficult to deal with for a lot of characters. Ronitta shows how to handle Izanami, Mai, Azrael and Nine in the matches below.

Curious about the list of top arcade players? Jourdal also uploaded a video showing the rankings and wrote our their names and characters:
