I'm really not interested in any classic fighters because the ones I want, the UFC wont put in their game.


Wonder if Mickey Gall gets put in.

Wish they'd do some top invicta prospects. I'd love Alexa Grasso in the game.

I doubt they add Grasso until she gets to the UFC. I wouldnt be shocked if Kovalecski, Cyborg and Schevchenko get added.

Cote and Louis Smolka were added this patch.

Trying to figure out how to do the Stockton Slap right now, doing Diaz v Diaz.

I'd love to hear some feedback on if the AI is viable now in stand-up.

One fight so far on Hard Cote vs Lawler. The meter for transitions, takedowns, etc. fills up much faster. A lot easier to defend take downs. CPU don't automatically INSTANTLY deny transitions anymore. Ground game seem to be slower and more realistic. You are now able to go to half guard and pound the body a tad bit before being put back into full guard.

Before when you passed to half guard, the CPU instantly put you back in full guard before you even got a chance to throw a punch. Got TKO'ed in the 2nd round.

I wish they add Okami to the roster.

I read couple posts about the AI over at the official forums. All were negative so far. Can't play today so looking forward to this forum's critique. Fingers crossed that those players are jumping to conclusions.

The thing I'm most interested in is whether it is still super easy to take the CPU down.

Lets try Hard. We've never found good results on Pro.

Would be cool if SkyNet can expand on "Plus AI improvements". What exactly was covered in this patch?
 
# 16 fballturkey @ 04/12/16 03:29 PM
They need to bite the bullet and give the AI straight up stat boosts on Pro. It sucks but it sucks less than having a noncompetitive AI.

Just watched Sakuraba vs Gracie CPU vs CPU.

1st round a lot of stand up. Too much stand up for ground fighters IMO.

2nd and 3rd round was a grapple fest. Sakuraba took a lot of ground and pound damage to the face that use to be an instant TKO prior to the patch. Disappointed the AI still goes for the sitting back RNC way too often for a submission. Need way more variety in submission attempts by the CPU. I don't think I ever saw the CPU go for a heel hook or knee bar or ankle lock.

4th round started off with stand up, but then went to the ground with a lot of rolling around. Gracie ended up ground and pound Sakuraba in the face for a TKO.

I must say EA made Sakuraba very weak and the AI version of him plays nothing like the real life version. He attempted no rolling knee bars or kmuras from the bottom. I would like to see the AI do more ADVANCED take downs. I see single leg 99% of the time. Haven't seen any of the advanced take downs by the CPU at all.

Over all this match was much better then it was when I 1st ran it when the game 1st came out with the fight ending in the 1st round.

That's what I figure, wish they'd add some from Invicta that have a chance to come to UFC with their relationship.

Played Cerrone vs Diaz. Diaz didn't do the stockon slap I was disappointed. I noticed it is a lot easier to recover from a "rocked" state. Fight went 3 rounds before Diaz submitted me. Also noticed it is a lot easier to survive to the 1st couple of submission attempts and switch submission attempts. I remember before a switch submission use to be an instant submission by the CPU.

CPU seem to attack the body a whole lot more. I like that. Before they use to head hunt 90% of the time it seemed. I wish judo throws and advanced throws did more damage though.

about to get some practice fights in, slap McGregor around a bit with Nate obviously. Can get back to my Universe tomorrow hopefully.
