"Damn... well I guess that giant sword isn't just for show. But what can you do... against a barrage of bullets!?"

I use Scatter Shot.

Laguna wastes no time in firing back with his ability, SCATTER SHOT! Deafening gunshots are fired as bullets rain down on Cloud.

Laguna does -10 damage to every one of Cloud's stats!

Cloud feels the effects of the bullets but is unharmed on 200/200 HP

Blowing smoke from a gun barrel, Laguna remains on 160/200 HP

Cloud rests his sword on his shoulder and is picture of stoicism. His body hums with energy as he charges his ability BRAVER!

Cloud foregos this turn. Nothing happens!

Laguna remains alert and wary, sitting on 160/200 HP

Cloud is unmoving with 200/200 HP

STR has been played.

Cloud erupts from his charge state and streaks towards his foe with all of his SPD. He prepares to strike at his foe with added power... but the attack fails!

With renewed confidence Laguna remains on 150/200 HP

Cloud is stunned and now has 160/200 HP

STR, DEF and SPD have been played.

The next move goes to Laguna!

"Things are looking up! Best to ride the wave and finish it before it comes crashing back down!"

I use MDF! Or MAGD. Whatever you want to call it.

02-24-2016, 02:48 PM
A few miss hits this battle, this is closer than I was expecting.

02-24-2016, 02:54 PM
Laguna jumps backwards and cocks his gun, preparing to use his MAGD to deal the final blow... His attack is a success!

Laguna does a crushing -50 damage to Cloud's HP!

Laguna holsters his weapon and sits with 150/200 HP

Thanks gents. Good game. Galuf, if I could offer a piece of advice (even though I might get in trouble from Ultimecia for doing so >.>) it would be this; Braver should really always be played with your first move of the game. That way you will ideally have 2 strong offensive stats to choose to use it with, and won't be put in a position where you will damage yourself like in that game.

That said, I can tell you both that some minor changes are being made to both of your abilities so keep your eyes out in the Change Log to see what those will be. Thanks again to both of you :)

Good game. If you'd used the Chocobo Feather you probably could've turned it around.

Though that reminds me, can Cloud use items inbetween using Braver and a stat matchup, or does he HAVE to follow up Braver with an attack, lest the effect go to waste?

A few miss hits this battle, this is closer than I was expecting.

I didn't look at the stat sheets at all for this round. Just the post where I outlined strengths and weaknesses. I was actually quite surprised when my DEF attack failed.

02-24-2016, 03:05 PM
i did ask if i could use item, but i was having internet trouble so i just used speed anyway... even if its a practice i dont like making people wait^^;

02-24-2016, 03:08 PM
Aw I didn't see you were having connection issues Galuf, I replied that you can use an item while in your BRAVER state and it will simply remain on until you next attack.

Karifean, normally your DEF would have been even but Cloud's DEF+ meant he had the slight edge this match.

02-24-2016, 03:26 PM
Those DEF+ and other stat boosters can really change the tide of battle!

But a fascinating round, regardless.
