Toribash
Original Post
Advanced fighting style option
So I was in a betting server just sitting back and admiring all the bets, even betting some Tc a little, then an idea came to me while someone made an outstanding save, what if toribash had more movement options. Then here came the idea, Toribash could have traits for each movement option, such as the following;
Strong Extend/Contract
Slowly Extend/Contract

Fast Raise/Lower
Slow Raise/Lower

There should also be an check box in the option/settings to toggle this on and off, preferably wanted to be called "Advanced fighting style".

All of these movements are self explanitory and if the scripters want to create it then they can interperate it how ever they want to. So what did you think of this idea?

make it easier for players who already know what their doing, but make it harder for players who are just trying to make things look cool, but dont understand their joints. I just learned how to use my lumbar efficiently as a 3rd dan... do we really need to make this more difficult?

I'd like to see this "test run" thing.

Well, that's all assuming that you can spare every joint to focus on a single task.

Again, I'll lean on striking mods because that's really all I know. I can play other kinds of mods but I'm hardly any more than average (if that) and I don't understand more than the mere basics of the playstyle. Anyway, when I play lenshu, I focus on 4 things at any given time: disqualification, striking, blocking/dodging, and distance between me and my opponent. In other words, if I wanted to avoid a nasty kick to my head, but I needed to use every single joint to dodge/block it effectively, I'm most likely going to do one if not all of the following: 1.) come damn near close to disqualification 2.) put myself in a sketchy fucking position that completely exposes me to my opponent 3.) disallows any kind of offensive on my part. If you want an extremely specific scenario where the slower movements could save my ass, I'm sure I can manage to give one but that'd be a lot of typing and a lot more time than I feel like investing atm.

I should also mention that it's very unlikely this will only help those who prefer striking mods. Most of you should know your own mods well enough that you could see opportunities where you could have used slower movements. (If not, maybe you should invest more time into understanding your own movements?)

As has been stated, this would be client toggleable, with the default state as having slower joint states disabled. It won't affect new players unless they decide to toggle it on, so the learning curve shouldn't steepen any until the player decides that he/she is ready for the challenge.

I... explained that poorly. Go look at previous posts by other people who said it better than I to keep from getting the wrong idea.

Tori have 20 joints, every have joint 4 setups. So Tori 4 ^ 20 = 1099511627776 setups. In some condition joint setups able to influence on bodypart that placed on other side of body. How ? Skill. Thats a proper solution and not options that make tb easy.
