So, yes, I said I wouldn't buy this until a sale...but I actually got some money and I'm watching DBZ for the first time (saw few episodes when I was a kid but obviously didn't see it all) so yes I decided to buy it!
I started playing and now that I actually know the characters I'm very pleased with the game....BUT I tried some online and I got my *ss destroyed...NP I thought, since I was really new to the game! I tried arcade 3 battles and I won...then I wanted the new blue Goku thingy and tried the hard mode! At the second battle I lost so damn hard, Hit or whatever that guy is was destroying me with combos non stop!
Any tips you can give?

Some topics I don't really grasp:
can I break a combo?
Can you only defend if you're pressing back at the first hit?
Why do I suck with Frieza?????????????????? LOL how can I unluck the Golden Frieza? (or is it not in the game?)
Sorry for this mild rant ahah thanks!

yeah unless your a fighting game expert i would steer clear of the online unless you playing with friends not to mention certain characters can cause a sync issue where one players match starts before the others giving one player a huge advantage as your seeing all their movements after they have done them (18 mainly)

oh and by the way Golden Frieza is a special move you have to activate, just look at Frieza's move list it's on there

There was nothing wrong with the way FFXIII was, ALL the FF games before it were linear too (apart from the MMO's) it's just they hid it better

@AFCC To answer your questions:

  • If it's a proper combo and you've been hit by the first move, then no, you can't break out of it.
  • So yes, in order to defend against a combo you need to not get hit by any of its moves. If the combo has gaps in it (allowing you to recover) then it's not a "true" combo.
  • Golden Frieza is in the game, but you have to transform during a fight with Frieza, like @FullbringIchigo says. I think it's quarter-circle backwards then R2.

Like any fighting game it just takes time to get good at. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a bit easier than most because of its auto combos, but if you want to advance past that you have to know when to block, when to dash, etc. The game's played at a very fast pace so it can difficult actually keeping track of what's going on at first, but trust me, you do get used to it.

Definitely play through the tutorials if you haven't already and try to focus more on timing your attacks, defending, and spacing rather than trying to pull off crazy combos — at least in the beginning. Once you've got the basics down, everything else clicks that much quicker.

Hopefully this helps!

@FullbringIchigo thanks mate! It' not like online is the main thing for me anyway...I normally play offline but still like to do a few matches! Still I did the 'same skill' to do the matchmaking and I felt like the guy was 10 times better than me lol

@ShogunRok alright, seems fair enough!
Do you think the arcade is a good training? I really want to beat the hard modes to get blue Goku and Vegeta but I don't know if I'm learning anything by dying over and over lol

@AFCC Arcade is a little tricky for training because the better you do, the harder the enemies get. I'd recommend doing the story over arcade if you're just starting out (assuming you haven't tried it yet).

The first arc of story mode has tutorials built into it, so it might help you get to grips better. Plus, it's got a steady difficulty curve.

The other option I'd suggest is playing with friends. A casual environment is one of the best ways to learn a fighting game as you start to pick up on things you wouldn't necessarily notice when you're trying your hardest to survive against the computer. Obviously local play is best for this, but if you've got any online buddies that can work too.

As for Blue Vegeta and Goku, there's an alternate way to unlock them. If you acquire 300,000 zeni (total, you don't have to own that much at once) you unlock Vegeta. If you acquire 500,000 zeni, you unlock Goku.

What's more, story mode is a good way of making a lot of money quite quickly, while also making progress through it. Plus, you unlock Android 21 if you complete all of it.

@ShogunRok ok nice!
I started the story mode but I only played the first battle! Then Beerus appeared and I am only finishing the Sayans arc in the anime so I'm afraid the story mode will spoil something...

@AFCC honestly the story will spoil a lot if your only up to the Saiyan Saga

my suggestion watch DBZ Kai as it's a shortened version of DBZ that cuts out most of the fluff and filler that way you will get through it quicker
