So this is like super old, but I was wondering if the usefulness of dragunovs (down 1+2) tackle is cancelling it to the sideroll (1+2 again) and then getting the (rising 2) launcher?

Dragunov is my favorite right now. I was very surprised that there was no mention of 2 of my most successful moves for D. His face down head away leg take down as suckered many of my opponents. And I use the ultimate tackle as much as I can because Dragunov can arm-lock someone who punches him and can reverse other ppls arm lock. Did I just ruin a secret? BRING IT!

Great Job Guys! I would love to see a show on King, Law, Lei, or BRYAN! I don't like Bob, He seems cheesy I think what you warriors are doing for our gaming community is wicked awesome! You make it easier for those of us who trench in with our favs. Also Tekken is an extremely deep game, your show makes it so easy for new bees to hop in and start to contend. If you did not do this, Namco may try to get new blood in join the game by watering it down so that they won't whine and quit. You are doing such a great service to Tekken and to awesome warriors that practice its fine art.

I agree that top tier Cha will be boring but I would love to hear about Law or King

Ask the right questions if you're to find the right answers.

You cannot always make such big exhibitions, because they consume too much time and energy.

These are great videos, I hope you do a Steve one soon. Been waiting for it ever since this started, it's quite difficult to play with him.

I would love to watch a hwoarang centric episode.

Great job on the Sergei coverage and I loved Aris's personality- definitely seemed like a Sergei player. =p I'd love to see a Bryan or Bob video next.

I'd much rather see some less common characters - Yoshi, AK, Jack, Julia etc

Great videos guys! I'd love to see how you suggest to use really difficult characters like Julia Chang or Kazuya.

ugh .. "do Bob" , "do Law" "do Steve" . boring top tiers . Bob, Law ? What's to explain about them ? Already being used to DEATH by way too many people, and they're easy as sh^t to use . Bob and Law come on man . I'd rather see some more complicated chars explained. Ones that are harder to win with . Hwoarang seems like an interesting char to hear a bit more about. Mishima's ? And maybe steve, altough he's one of the strongest chars, he is a bit different to use and not that easy from what i hear. No simple top tiers please lol

I have to agree with SEE ME PANIC and DESTROY-ALL. both steve and brian are high in demand but it would be even better if you went over both charector in detail in the same video like before, if there is enuogh time. Becuse if you do one charector per episode it would be going on until tekken 7 comes out lol. ps I THOUGH THE CURSE BLEEPING TEKKEN NOISES WERE GENIUS AND FUNNY AS ALL

Could you do Jack-6 next? He is pretty easy to do and you can cover alot of stuff with Jack

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. Steve is definitely on our todo list, but we'll see how things work out.

DESTROY-ALL

Me and a hole lot of other people have been waiting for MYK to give brake down and talk about STEVE FOX for almost the hole year. He is one of the top fastest charecters in the game. I hope episode 8 will be about him. PLEASE!!

Agreed with kornstar. This is the first LUYG where I paid attention the whole way through (nothing against the Suiken episode, but I wanted to focus on Anti-strats at the time). Did you guys have those sounds effect (with the characters yelling) on during the episode, or were they added later? Found them annoying personally, but hey, it's already a free video, so just a minor gripe. Considering your competition, Law may be a good candidate for the next episode, though anyone you can write episodes about will work. I guess the only big concern really would be making sure these are out before TTT2 can render them possibly (though highly unlikely) obsolete. Thanks for the episode all the same, keep it up. Also, have you guys considered having a donation section on the site? I almost thought that was what the Support section of the site was.

can't decide if I prefer the longer format or if I preferred the old one where you had 10 minutes clips. either way, Aris was a great pick for Dragunov.

do a yoshimitsu one next.

That is a useful mixup for it if your opponent is quick on their punishing. Against a less skilled opponent though, theyre just going to be standing there the whole time and you may as well have just tackled them. Of course, you can use the tackle by itself to train them to react to it before using the cancel. All in all, it definitely makes the tackle more useful.

Also, I love everything u guys do. Please keep up the awesome work.

The "sounds effect (with the characters yelling)" are their version a censorship "bleep" as they coincide with whenever Aris swears.

Yoshi?????? Nobody cares about that wierd novelty character. Do Bob! Definetly do Bob. Alot more players will benefit for that. Great episode as usual, by the way! Keep up the good work! You guys are helping out alot of people!

I do. Yoshi's been there since the start of Tekken, it's Bob who's the novelty joke character. The tiers say nothing about that. Yoshi's very fun to play, and like Asuka, it's not about winning with him. LOL. Everyone knows about Bob right now, I think it'll be much more helpful to make a "guide" about Yoshi, someone underplayed.
