Gura 'Leaks' the Secrets to Using Leo & Lili in Tekken 7

If you were watching EVO Japan last month, you may remember Gura who was repping Team Nightmare in the Top 8. Gura as you may already know is an exceptionally knowledgeable player from Korea who has played Leo, Lili, Kazumi and Geese before in Tekken 7. In some of the recent videos he uploaded onto his YouTube channel, he goes into and guides people into some concise key things when playing both Leo & Lili. Or what he likes to call it, 'leaking the secret' to playing them. These guide videos are in Korean but English captions of the video are now available thanks to the translator suoder so we can now all understand it. You can catch these character guides as well as all the other content Gura makes over on his YouTube & Twitch pages:

Day 1 of Geese Howard's Release; What's Working and What's Not

The Goose is loose everyone. The new character has just arrived and the flow of streams, notes, combo clips and more are pouring in. While it is Day 1, there's already hours of live content to dig into if you're looking at how people are finding the new guest character. I'll start by posting some of the more brief and interesting clips out there and should you be interested in watching more of Geese, you can watch the Day 1 Geese Howard streams from the community. The Tekken Bot frame data display for the PC has stopped working as of this patch unfortunately but here are some frame data documents floating around to use as a resource in the meantime. Enjoy.

Tekken 7 PC - TekkenBot Frame Data Overlay

Oh here we go, a working frame data overlay for Tekken 7 PC! Dubbed the 'TekkenBot Frame Data Overlay', this standalone program will locate the running Tekken 7 game and overlay very helpful frame data info while you play for your character and the opponent. It includes frame advantage, hit type, startup, and the number of active frames for the last performed move so this will really help you out in getting up to speed with a lot moves players may be abusing against you. The overlay is a transparent window so it currently only works in windowed or borderless windowed mode so be sure to set that up before using it. Added below this post is a video of the overlay that Roguelike made and it goes into more details about it so be sure to check it out. The frame data overlay is very early in development so be sure to note that there might be some errors or bugs. Big thanks goes to Rogue2dlike for releasing the frame data overlay, you can download it for yourself over on hit GitHub!

Putting the Complexity of Tekken into Perspective

Tekken is an incredibly complex game and it's all due to its gameplay design which allows players such a huge scope of possible interactions. A key component that Tekken owes to its incredible depth is the gameplay mechanic of being able to cancel a huge amount of animation states and movement to formulate your unique game plan. In Tekken, the most difficult and intrinsic ability to train and elevate yourself as a competitor is a thorough understanding of the movement system with its ability to cancel any kind of movement action into other actions. It is also the most frustrating thing in Tekken as a new player to come to grips with and wrestle with since understanding and practicing all the possible movement options in the neutral allows you to avoid getting hit by enemy attacks. To really home in on the sheer complexity of Tekken, recent modding efforts on PC Tekken 7 has given us Finite State images of every possible animation state available to a character. Or to put it more simply, a big scary flowchart of every possible thing you can do or find yourself in Tekken 7. The finite state visuals below come courtesy of the modder @Dantarion and really puts into perspective of how incredibly complex a game Tekken is.
