My fellow Virtua fighters I have a new axe to grind, and I trust you'll all in your special ways assist me in this. WHAT THE HELL IS LEI FEI ABOUT? I MEAN...WHAT'S WITH ALL THOSE ANTI JEET KUNE DO "HARD" STANCES? I NEVER KNOW WHEN I AM GONNA END UP IN THIS ONE OR THE OTHER ONE, AND WHEN I SUDDENLY FIND MYSELF IN KOKO SHIKI ALL I CAN DO IS TRY TO BLOCK...(TWICE) TO GET OUT OF IT. THIS GUY IS A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN TO ME. I CAN'T BE BOTHERED, HE'S TOO DAMN STICKY. ALL I CAN DO IS MASH!! Whew!! now that I've got that out, the real questions. 1) Isn't Lei Fei for advanced users? 2) Is Lei Fei just for beginners who can do no better than mash or see 1) 3) Is it better _a) to be able to quickly identify which stance he has now come to and know what your options (move choices) are from the current stance; or _b) to know before hand that doing x,x,y,y will lead to stance Z coming from stance A, ad nauseam. 4) If someone hates Lei Fei's and all those stances, won't he naturally choose Jacky? Seriously though, isn't it just a little annoying, all those stances? Hmm? I just started to seriously try Lei Fei, and yes against the comp., and can't yet pass the 'Wild Thing' in Arcade Mode, she always gives me the Army Combination. For a character who seems so slow she really is feisty!! Props Hon'. Two options: 1. Try to avoid Lei's stances by doing moves that don't lead to them, like u+K,(d)(f)K, or do moves that get in a stance for only 1 move and gets back to normal, exemple gratia f,f+K,PK (damn I hope that is right). 2. Spend a nice chunk of playing time learning the "ins and outs" of the great monks "stance fighting" style. "He is so not Jacky" Before you all flame me, I never said I hated anything, I never said the game sucked, all's I says is LEI FEI is not for beginners-that you can flame. So, ermm, whadya peeps think? How many of you use Lei Fei, find him a drag, find him cunning, etc. I am doing one character a night after work, last night was Lei's turn. Jeffery can really pile on the pain in a few hits (f+KG,df,df+PG). Mr. Chan is so damn aggressive, that long combo (b,b+p,d+p,df+p,p,p,d+k, and then df+k - if they let you). This game has lots for everyone. BTW are we guaranteed a df+p, or stomp after AS3. I am thinking that since it is only 25pts, you get the extra downed hits as a bonus. Yow oonu a 'ear mi, run dat seen, memba, man a bad man, nuh guy tes'. Yaadie out!
