Guilty Gear Xrd - Guide to the Very Basics

I love this game and maybe by showcasing some of the basics mechanics of it, I can make some people excited about it as well.
This video only includes the very basics of the basic stuff that the game has to offer and also VERY brief look on all the current characters available.

How to Improve at Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator

I forgot to block names out, whoops. Don't take much about me or my opponents from random netplay games.

The Street Fighter Guide to Guilty Gear - 0.1 Why Bother?

This is the introduction to a (hopefully) long running series teaching Street Fighter players how to play Guilty Gear, focusing less of the specifics and more in the mentality changes required.

Sorry about being a ghost for a couple of months, this game combined with a new job will do that.

What makes the combo hard? Part 2: Sol's Dustloop

This series is geared more toward total beginners. I break down bread and butter combos for a character, and show you step by step how the combo works. I find common points in a combo where people mess up or struggle, then give strategies to fix the issue.

In this video I cover basic Guilty Gear combo theory, and I do the following Sol combo:

c.S 6p (pause) 5HS j.c. rising j.D falling j.D. land, rising j.D. falling j.D. land 66 (dash briefly) j.K j.D. j.c. j.S j.D. xx Volcanic Viper

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator 2: Ky Kiske Pros / Cons.

Ky Kiske is another well-rounded character good option in Guilty Gear Xrd - Revelator 2, while with Sol Badguy the newcomers can learn a lot of footsies and rushdown concepts, with Ky Kiske the learning curve can be a bit more extensive because this character can be played in a close range, mid range and/or zoning.
In this quick character overview, I hope to show Ky Kiske main characteristics in all stances (close range, mid-range, and zoning). I hope its useful.

Music: GGX2 [Holy Orders (Be Just Or Be Dead)].

During the first Xrd phase, there was another Brazilian Guilty Gear player who created an amazing Ky Kiske video focused on mixups and most of all stuff still works in GGRev2.
I really recommend his video and here is the link.

Hi, I'm Joseph and this is Gloomshot, a highly advanced curation bot that compiles the best moments of the best FGC streams.

Jam Pressure Guide

Please note this is mostly just a primer on where to get started and what her general tools are. There are many odd MU specific cases and issues I didn't mention, plus everyone has their own style and everyone you are fighting has their own weaknesses so keep that in mind.

The 5K OS I mentioned in part 9 is linked below:
And yeah I probably could of recorded it again, but I didn't :/.

Re-uploaded with some corrections and a few additional clips courtesy of recommendations made from the Jam Discord.

Playing Guilty Gear for the first time in 2019!

Come watch the stream!
This was my first time playing Guilty Gear. The game May (pun intended) be getting on in years but it's still incredible to just jump in and play.

A boring, technical note about 2:19:
For those who want the long in-depth explanation, you can also do FD with H as well (and Ruu wanted to include it because it's technically true) but it’s not recommended!

The throw~FD option select was removed from Xrd so if you try to FD with H you’ll need to be more accurate than usual or else you may get accidental H attacks. Therefore we recommend doing FD with only P,K or S.

If you do 4P ~ +K you will get FD
If you do 4K ~ +P you will get FD
If you do 4P ~ +H you will get FD
If you do 4H ~ +P you will get H

Because you cannot kara cancel H into FD you may get more execution errors, therefore you should do FD with P,K or S. We preferred to omit H from the explanation than to let new players experience mysterious execution errors because they don't understand the ins and outs of the engine and the tweaks made by the developers based on high level of play.

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev2 Learning "Larva Faust" in under 4 hours

I'm trying an experiment tonight where I learn Faust at a larva stage in one single session. If you watch my Larva Ky video I explain better what that means.

I'm choosing Faust because I think I can more realistically get somewhere with him in a shorter period of time. A character like Sin is very tempting, but I think he has too many specific combos you need to be able to hit in a match that I don't have time to grind out in one go.

Stream will be pretty chill in that I'm documenting the entire process, so there might be parts where Im just sitting there trying to do some execution thing for 15 minutes straight. It might be boring!

How to counter mashing using frametraps (Guilty Gear XRD #Revelator)

This video will help you understand how to beat people who mash 2p to get out of pressure. The video shows three frame traps with Ky, and looks at one in detail. These ideas can be carried over to any other character.
