Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from November 16 to November 22, 2018!


Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:

Frame 1:
Capcom Pro Tour Logo
The current state of the Capcom Pro Tour, and what needs to be changed for future seasons

The CPT in 2018 has a lot of aspects that could stand another look — DaFeetLee offers up his ideas, as we draw close to the finale at Capcom Cup.

Frame 2:
DBFZ Gotenks
The patch notes for this Wednesday’s Dragon Ball FighterZ balance patch have been released and translated

A lot of changes for the Z-Fighters came through on this patch — study up to make sure you make the most of your team.

Frame 3:
fighting ex layer fexl darun mister
Fighting EX Layer on PlayStation 4 will be upgraded to Version 1.1.1 on November 30, patch notes now available

It’s a big day for FEXL: the PS4 version is getting its own patch, and the Steam version of the game is hitting digital store shelves.

Frame 4:
tekken_3_boxart
Some games on the PlayStation Classic will be PAL versions, including Tekken 3 and Battle Arena Toshinden

Well, so much for the fighters on the micro-Station. A clear sign of pushing nostalgia over gameplay quality, unfortunately. Maybe a compilation package for Tekken classics will redeem this gaffe sometime in the future.

Frame 5:
sfv_street_fighter_v_logo_fancy
Stumblebee chronicles the history of Street Fighter V’s origin and improvements in “From Chump to Champ”

It’s important to make the distinctions where SFV truly screwed up, what it does well, and where improvements have really been made over the Seasons.

Frame 1:
SoulCalibur_VI_2B_2P_alt
Yoko Taro talks about 2B’s attack names and her alternate color in SoulCalibur VI

If you’ve never seen the mind of Yoko Taro at work, you really owe it to yourself to read. His thought processes are unique, to say the least.

Frame 2:
josie
Justin Wong talks with fellow players about how they battle tournament nerves

There’s no crying in battle, Josie. Learn how the pros control their tournament nerves!

Frame 3:
super smash bros ultimate srk
Challonge’s new format enables tournaments for Super Smash Bros. four and eight player last-man-standing modes

I don’t mean to cause trouble… but are the people that play four-to-eight last man standing modes on the regulars even going to know Challonge exists?

Frame 4:
king
“Pot Splitter” Android app does quick math for tournament organizers

I love to see creative solutions to common problems that arise in tournaments. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Frame 5:
vf5 arashi jean
Tokai Bay Area Cup Vol.8 3v3 Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown tournament Highlights and VOD now available

Long live Virtua Fighter.
