Learning the ropes with a new fighting game can feel like a daunting task — especially when it comes to picking up a new character or two. If you’re lucky, a few noble souls who regularly lurk on community forums might be willing to point you in the right direction. Though in most cases, you’ll end up getting trolled with responses to “Git Gud.”
And who wants to deal with that?
Well, now there’s a less intrusive approach to thanks to a KOF user Antinomy, who came up with a handy infographic that was designed to aid novice players.
You’ll note that the color charge breaks down the roster with four colors that correspond to characters, all of whom range from being relatively intuitive to more technical archetypes. For example, yellow-coded characters are just as capable as green-coded characters for picking up the core basics, however certain aspects to that character's gameplan could lead to bad habits when utilized at low level play. So ideally, newcomers may want to start off with those labeled in green.
Characters marked with a red dot however, should only be tackled by highly proficient players who genuinely understand the game mechanics inside and out.
If you consider this chart very handy, be sure to share the graphic around with those in your local circle, and give Antimony a shout-out for taking the initiative to elevate the scene.
