Let's discuss the touhou games.

Previous thread >>18424872

>Which game is best for survival? Which game is best for scoring?

Very nice question that definitely won't lead to a shitwar like last thread.

Anyways, I'm saying UFO for survie, EoSD for scorie.

You can't really cheese UFO unless you maybe construct a really good UFO resource route. Because of that, the game is pretty balanced and more demanding than most 2hus (which I personally enjoy).

I don't have too much scoring knowledge but I like EoSD's scoring because it demands survival fundies while also having a nice amount of scoring tricks. PCB is too overwhelming with scoring tricks, MoF is too much survival and I don't like how the score progresses. EoSD hits those notes a lot better to me. IN is also cute I guess.

>> No.18526655

For me it's UFO for survival as even a vanilla 1cc will always be a challenging, unless maybe you've spent 10 hours in practice mode learning stages for resource cheese? Meanwhile every other touohu except perhaps EoSD lets you cheese with no previous routing if you are willing to try it.

For score it's PCB, it's a masterpiece. It rewards all the right things with score.

>> No.18526661

I'm sorry if you getting this a lot do you guys have advice for beginners?

>> No.18526697

Hold shift for focused movement.
Use bombs if you get yourself into a situation where you are not confident that you can get out, only do what you feel is a risky maneuver if you are out of bombs.
Unlock stages for practice mode using continues, then use practice mode to make a route that feels safe.
If you keep at it your brain will eventually help you get better and in a few weeks you'll probably 1cc.
Starting a credit on normal or even lunatic once in while might also help you improve to some degree.
If you don't care about spoilers and you can't figure out some of the trickier spells or stage sections you could go look at replays or videos of other people beating the game.

Disagree. UFO's resource system is absolute garbage. Minute differences in player movement, spawns, hidden off-screen fairies, and the times when UFO fairies die make it virtually impossible to actually consistently route the stages, and it becomes a matter of "just wing it lol". This is fine on Normal, frustrating on Lunatic. It's not a fun system, not for survival, and even less so for scoring. UFO is only fun during no-miss attempts where you can ignore the resource system entirely and deliberately; but how many players here can honestly say they're at LNN level?

Anon you're replying to here, I can't tell how you would come to this conclusion. Routing works pretty similarly across difficulties; at the very least Lunatic routes basically also apply to lower difficulties. "Minute differences" in movement don't really matter as long as you're in the right place at the right time. There's also only one off-screen UFO fairy and it isn't even important. I'm not going to say I'm extremely consistent at executing my route but it's pretty much second-nature and well enough resources to clear if I don't suck that day.

original UFOposter here, I have had LNBNV for quite a while now so yes I can make that bold claim

UFO's main """""""""""""flaw"""""""""""" is that it takes actual effort to learn and route, while also being popular for having confusing, glowy, super random patterns as well. So both route players and fundie players seem to get buttfugged at some point and feel like the game isn't fit for them. You just need to bite through that until you can control both routing and dodging at a "passable" level. But again, UFO sets the bar very high without any real cheese strats to save your butt, and that can make it frustrating especially for first hard/luna 1cc.

>Disagree. UFO's resource system is absolute garbage. Minute differences in player movement, spawns, hidden off-screen fairies, and the times when UFO fairies die make it virtually impossible to actually consistently route the stages, and it becomes a matter of "just wing it lol".

The UFO pieces always spawn in the same way, and the most random stage parts can be canceled out with half-decently timed UFO cancels. Also player movement is not really more or less minute as it is in any 2hu as far as I've noticed. Off-screen fairies and "the moment UFO fairies die" can all be routed pretty easily so I don't really see the problem there.

>UFO is only fun during no-miss attempts where you can ignore the resource system entirely and deliberately; but how many players here can honestly say they're at LNN level?

Try playing UFO without collecting UFOs. You'll start to miss them very quickly.

You don't "have" to gap. If you're at that point you already made a bad decision somewhere else. The video just points out that it's a nice crutch if you're playing ReimuA. It's not just RNG that gets you such a situation, it's pretty avoidable with any shot.

Trying to work through TD Lunatic, I'm finding it one of the harder Lunatic games just because of how stingy it is with resources. Then again, I haven't spent much time in spell practice. But if you die once on Stage 4, and once on Stage 5, that only leaves you with like ~3 lives for the last boss. Maybe that's enough? Other games give you a lot more resources

For the most part it hasn't been that bad, though I still haven't started the last day. It's just the scenes that are hard in this game are incredibly frustrating compared to other games.

it's not lunatic but i've found sanae is by far the best shot in TD if you want to resource whore the game. she does as much damage as everyone (except slightly less than reimu), stages are just as easy as reimu too. What makes her good in TD is her ability to unfocus shotgun which generates a ton of spirits. Her bomb guarantees you fill at least 1/3 of the spirit gauge because it lets you shotgun, so you get nearly infinite trances.

>> No.18550462

Grats on that Hard 1cc, but Sanae is by far the WORST shot in TD. She does the least amount of damage compared to everyone else (her unfocused shotgun is still weaker than Marisa's focused shotgun and her trance is tied for the weakest along with Reimu's), and TD stages are pretty self-explanatory anyway. Her ability does come in handy on occasion, but she's going to be getting the same amount of trances compared to the other three regardless. If she's getting 'nearly infinite' trances, so are the other three.

>> No.18550530

I respectfully disagree. Marisa and Sanae do almost the same damage at distance. Sanae gets 1/3 of her spirit gauge with every bomb, no matter where it's used on the screen. Marisa doesn't. And Sanae's stages are much easier.

These are some damage calcs on Guze Flash with iframes. Marisa is certainly stronger than Sanae. As for the bombs, if you care about spirit gain, then you want to bomb in front of the boss's face anyway. That's the entire point. And again, TD stages aren't that difficult with any shot.

Also, you should try to cap Yoshika's final on Lunatic with Sanae. After that, do it with the other three. You'll see the difference perfectly.

Sometimes you bomb when you aren't in front of the boss. Sanae gets 1/3 of her gauge no matter where you bomb. Marisa gets 0.

>2% difference in far damage
It's fucking nothing. This isn't SA where one shot is dealing 25% more than others.

And Sanae gets to shotgun much more because of her bomb, which more than makes up the difference in shotgun damage. And Reimu is dealing more damage than Marisa at range.

>> No.18550616

When it comes to TD, you really want to spend those bombs in front of bosses for trance gain. That way you can get optimal use out of them. It's all about shotgunning.
And since TD is all about shotgunning, Marisa's benefits in strength and a stronger trance to utilize outweigh Sanae's 'enhanced' trance gain and decent shotgun (which is admittedly fun to use, honestly).

>> No.18550621

It is when all your arguments are subjective and you blame the game for things you could easily solve yourself and implement into your gameplay. Enemies shooting offscreen (I don't even know where you see this happen) and UFO fairies dying at bad moments are problems that can get resolved with basic routing.

>Shit stage design
Examples please
>shit mechanics
Learn to route, and examples please
>shit characters
Uh, sure lol.
>worst music in the windows games
Too subjective for me to give a shit, but it just feels like this and the character complaint are just an extension of your gameplay salt and an excuse to whine more. Same thing happened when LoLK came out and everyone was jerking each other's willy for for calling literally everything the game does "terrible".

Stages 5 and 6 have better routes for greens than the previous stages. Stage 6 is basically all greens if you're going for survival, and Stage 5 can be routed pretty well for either. If you want to clear, the goal is basically to stockpile bombs near the end and then unload on Shou and Byakuren so they threaten your life stock as little as possible.

Everyone knows yukari is phantasm u homo. Everyone classifies "phantasm" or "Yukari" or whatever the fuck as Extra because there is nothing special about Phantasm gameplay-wise except the unlock method. She just wears a nice "phantasm" title, but she fits right in with the extras and at least half of the extras are harder. So why the fuck would she deserve a league of her own? Being all pedantic when someone doesn't specifically say "oh and yukari by the way she is phantasm I am fully aware but she fits in with the rest of the extra bosses in terms of gameplay so I think it only makes these comparisons more thought-provoking if I add her because excluding her would just be terribly arbitrary" is gay.

Zun was way to scared to make Reisen more harder than he should so he sticked with fewer bullets on screen and more on gimmicks, which are easier, the only thing you need in Reisen is reaing her bullet track far ahead. Youmu on the other hard overwhelms you with bullets and crazy fast patterns with weird movements.

>False. TD has a drought of resources, so it's harder because the punishment for failure is much higher.
That doesn't make it harder than PCB.

This is wrong. TD gives you less resources than PCB.

You get lives at 10, 12, 15, 18 spirits. It is nearly impossible to get the 20 spirit life. The game gives you 4 extra lives, the least of any game.

You get extra lives at 50, 125, 200, 300, 450 and 800 point items, plus two extra lives from Stage 3 and 5. That's a total of 8 extra lives, which is twice what TD gives you.

There's a really easy way to do Patchouli nons. You can sit inside of the spell circle around her to get some easy pointblank dps at the start. Right before the laser is aimed directly under her, just go near the bottom to left side of the screen then stream right and if you time it properly you'll pass through the laser right as the hitbox despawns.

Shot differences exist. I'm not denying that, but they don't matter nearly as much as you make it out to be. A spellcard lasting a few seconds longer is irrelevant towards anyone decent and doesn't equate to the shot being at fault. It is literally your own fault for not dodging the bullets well enough that you get hit. If you are having trouble to the point where a few seconds of added time to a spellcard is making you die, then you aren't as good as you think you are. How about you practice and better yourself instead of pushing the blame onto something else? This isn't even about "getting good." You faggots come here and complain about retarded things instead of analyzing what you did wrong and trying to learn from your mistakes.

You only need the creativity. People greatly overestimate how much control you need to have good patterns when really it's all about how things unfold. Most people end up trying to do overly fancy shit and it plays awful because they're more focused on doing something "cool" than having something playable and well-designed.

I would make these waves more packed together in some way (less uniform). There isn't much cohesiveness to the pattern so especially once the slower bullets start coming they look just stuck in the middle of everything. The overlapping of waves across time is good though, that's what creates interesting situations.

>> No.18601105

Git gud is a lazy excuse for shot imbalance. The harder the achievement you're going for is, the bigger the difference in shot types gets. I personally find the extra challenge fun to deal with, but most people can't be assed to deal with that and will just use the better shot type because what they're doing is really hard in the first place and they don't need to put more sticks in their own wheels. Also when it comes to patterns with heavy RNG variance you want to end that stuff as fast as possible, even then, the longer a pattern lasts the higher your chances of dying are in the first place, and if your goal is to not die or bomb at all you're still inconveniencing yourself. All those lowered capture rates add up after a while and become pretty significant. Scoring's a bit of a different ball park depending on whether you want a good scorerun relative to what shot you're playing as or just big numbers, like for example in DDC Sakuya B makes big numbers really easy to get compared to the other shot types who'll struggle to get as much score as she does, no matter how good your play is. You just have to know what you're getting yourself into when playing a specific shot type, and saying that the differences are irrelevant and stop complaining since they could just play better doesn't account for exactly how much better one has to play, and in some cases it's quite a significant amount.

>> No.18601407

Anon, no one has 100% caprates on cards or sections that matter. Doing a DDC SakuyaB lunatic 1cc is leagues above doing a DDC ReimuA lunatic 1cc. ReimuA in EoSD also does worse than the other shots.

I finally did this, thus I've fully 1CCed Normal EoSD for all shots. That took waay too many attempts compared to other shots, including dying at pretty much everything. I'll continue to practice for SA 1CC Normal, as I've almost done it before.

You're right, I actually thought I wouldn't make it as Remilia kept fucking off to distant corners at the last spell.

Thank you, this was really helpful. Though I timed out the first laser non-spell, but hey, it's not like it matters. Before I just misdirected those aimed shots so that I'd have space to get to the other side, but I've never done that consistently.

Some shots are just worse and there is nothing you can do about it. As other anons pointed it out, the more time you spend on a hard or RNG spell card, the higher are the chances of missing. It's a statistical thing really.

2) It seems like if I can figure it out, it will be more consistent than dodging at the bottom half of the screen.
I've noticed that the orientation the butterflies come out changes every few cycles. Than in and of itself is not a huge problem, but I'm having a hell of a time dealing with the big bubble bullets when I have to change direction.

On Normal for pure survival, in order of increasing difficulty, I'd rank them as the following (from my experience):
MoF < PCB < HSiFS < IN < EoSD < TD < DDC (SakuyaA) < UFO < DDC (Not SakuyaA) < LoLK Pointdevice < SA

Here are the reasons for some of the rankings:
MoF: can bomb through the whole game, moderate amount of extends
PCB: borders can be broken and used like a bomb, get a lot of bombs and extends
HSiFS: game throws resources at you, can use releases like bombs, really easy to get a ton of extends
IN: get a lot of extra bombs, moderate amount of extends, very generous window to use bombs when you get hit
EoSD: danmaku is not that dense compared to later games, get a decent amount of extends and bombs
TD: really easy patterns on Normal, resource system requires routing to fully game it but not hard to get enough extends and bombs to carry you through the game
DDC: SakuyaA is broken, easy to get an insane amount of extra lives and bombs
LoLK: Sanae and Reisen are broken, if you have the patience then PD mode makes up for the difficulty
SA: easy to get a lot of extra lives early on, easy to lose them all later. Much less power drops than MoF, so you have to be stingier with your bombs. Patterns are difficult all around. Fuck Orin and her stupid zombie ghost fairies and fuck Satori for having such a bullshit boss as a pet.

I haven't really played LoLK Legacy on Normal so I don't know where it would fall. Probably depends more heavily on the shot type.

I'm saying that the circular movement is easier to execute once you can do it at all, and that if you have difficulties learning how to do it at that level of skill (which many do) you should just bomb the card anyway instead of trying to squeeze because ultimately that's more reliable, and it only takes one bomb. There shouldn't really be an in-between where bombing is too much but circling around is still too hard.

Bombs every single boss pattern and still has enough resources to clear the game despite unintentional deaths.

>despite unintentional deaths
note that even these were mostly "unintentional" from them trying to emulate how a bad player might dodge things, like how kanako's final is all done hugging the bottom

>how a bad player might dodge things
i feel like this descibes a new bad player.
as an experienced bad player, i constantly find new and creative ways to die to things.
