THIRD TOURNAMENT STARTS AT JULY 31ST, 8PM UTC https://time.is/UTC https://prolikewoah.com/t/20210731T20

BRACKETS LINK: https://challonge.com/SOKUDUELIST
SIGN UP FOR THE TOURNEY HERE: https://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/DyLvyC1y7h
STREAM LINK (when the tourney starts): https://cytu.be/r/touhourney

For those that do not want to register manually, post the name that you are signing up with here. It will be added to the brackets.

Hisoutensoku is an expansion to Touhou 10.5 SWR and is a multiplayer fighting game made by Tasofro with ZUN's approval. It's easy to learn, hard to master battle system makes for fun and fast paced matches with counterhits often launching girls across the screen. Very fast when played right. As a P2P game, game hosts must forward ports in order to play it or use specific workarounds.

Full installation: https://mega.nz/file/JaZ1WCrZ#S5KOFmp7vvV6I31hmJh157q9Nw0Z0fDMYb01WBQ4h_Y

This repack contains pre-configured soku alongside quality-of-life mods like automatically enabling rollback (sokuroll), autopunch, netplay lobby and being able to change contents of your deck in the character selection menu during netplay. Simply extract and play. More info here >>5125

Modpack: https://mega.nz/file/m5ghXYLQ#waa_R8bY-JmApb3Xia__6MetYdKddmCk39QwkJEGlGc

For those that can't download from the main mega link for some reason. Get soku, then extract contents of swrs toys (modpack archive) directly into the same folder. 

To host, a hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game. For hosts, please be sure to check the options menu to set a port and disable the "post to bot" checkmark if you don't want random people from the lobby to join instead of people in the thread. If no one's joining in the thread, playing people from the lobby can be a good idea to practice!

Should a port be unable to be forwarded, workarounds exist - Autopunch is installed in a modpack and is used automatically in case of un-forwarded ports. Keep in mind that it can fail on some routers and workplace connections and that ping will likely be less desirable, so please forward your ports.

Wiki: https://hisouten.koumakan.jp/

This is a central thread for posting information about the game and hosting games. Players are encouraged to get in as much practice as they can before the event - by hosting games or joining them. As always, feel free to ask questions about the game.

-The tournament organizer will not participate in the tournament, but will host for others to help practice for the upcoming event throughout the week.
-If final player count is below 32 players, the event will be a Best of 3, Double Elimination contest. Otherwise, it will be a Best of 3, Single Elimination contest.
-Use autopunch as a host when forwarding ports is impossible. Try to mention that it's used in the thread in case of connection failures - for some players, autopunch may simply not work. Link for non-modpack games here - https://github.com/delthas/autopunch
-Streamer is likely to be autistic, please put up with him.
-Three tournaments are planned. THREE.
-Take it easy.


From previous tournaments, there are some things that we've learned regarding the setup. Therefore, all participants are asked to get a couple things ready for when something inevitably goes wrong.


As spectating is unreliable at best, it's best to automatically save replays (enable in options). After the match, one of the players must upload the replays (found in Hisoutensoku\replay) and then give strmfag the link. This will let everyone see your matches on strm.


If you can't host, get autopunch (https://github.com/delthas/autopunch ; full installation already has this); both players need this. It will likely not function on a work network or an old router, so keep that in mind. If the participants fail to have a game until the winner is needed for the next round, it will be decided by concede or coinflip.


If a player is absent during the first round, his match is skipped until the rest of the matches within the round are done. If he's not there by then, he's counted as a bye and his opponent advances in the bracket. Same applies to later rounds. Don't hold everyone up.

I'll start hosting for practice in two or three hours.

it may appear at first glance that no amount of fumos can save you from the beams and ass, but you're essentially fighting for time to set up your dolls, which converts into abusing their delayed bullet attack to burst down the enemy - her moves that outprioritize faster things (like marisa that has none of that but is just there to outfast with utility on the side) are things like 66a (really FUN when it gets blocked correctly) and 623 (positional; alt is a good anti-air)

Be aware that the AI cannot graze but the average player can, long range engagements are a borefest and you will get into melee pretty often. Only advice I can give is block lots and be fast on your feet with dodging bullet.

GGs. You made some good progress even though you are being thrown into the deep end. I'll be using soku jargon in the following. If you don't understand a word look at >>6524 for sources.

I'm sure you noticed when you did something too much I began to do moves to counter it, such as the way you border escaped or when you approached me in the air I would intercept. This push and pull of always trying to one up your opponent makes the heart of fighting games. If you are in the corner and know my next attack you can graze/border escape it. If you can learn how to control you character then all these tools add to the potential options you have to get something on your opponent.

Some specifics for startes. Learn to high jump and move around quickly even when the opponent is chasing you and shooting bullets. You can escape pressure in all directions not just forwards and backwards. Get comfortable with the cancels between moves. Especially melee to bullet as I didn't see you cancel into them. You can also jump cancel you bullet attacks. You'll have noticed when I was attacking my moves would come out very quickly. All characters are capable of this in their own way. You can also look at some resources online for blockstrings and combos to save youself reinventing the whole character.

Keep up the hard work and you'll see good returns. 
I can't be bothered to proof read this. No bully.
Replies: >>6529
thanks for that I'm going through it now.
it's readable, good enough

Are you able to explain how come near the end I wasn't able to use the "stop blocking then double dash to get out of the corner" trick someone highlighted above? In the last few matches I tried using it but it wouldn't come out. Was that you doing something that prevented me from doing it or was I just messing up the input over and over?

>Get comfortable with the cancels between moves. Especially melee to bullet as I didn't see you cancel into them. You can also jump cancel you bullet attacks. 

I didn't know for the jump cancelling, for the bullets between moves I just figured it wasn't useful for Youmu because the take a while to come out but if it's actually worth it to do that I'll practice it next time I play.
Replies: >>6530 >>6536
You can only BE (border escape) during block stun, i.e. when you are in recoil from blocking a move. If you attempted to BE during block stun and it didn't come out then the cuases are:
 - you miss inputed (too late or weren't holding a direction)
 - you wrong blocked
 - the opponent is using a spell including spell starup
Replies: >>6531

In the last few matches I tried using it but it wouldn't come out. Was that you doing something that prevented me from doing it or was I just messing up the input over and over?
The input is really precise and netplay matches use rollback. You have to do the entire sequence of moves (release block, input direction, input dash, input dash) in the span of a single blockstun duration (duration of your character being locked in a blocking animation as a result of an attack). This means that while for really short blockstuns (like from Komachi's weaker B bullets (1 hit)) it's really hard to consistently get a Border Escape without practice, it's possible even for a complete novice to attempt this from a blockstun of a larger hit.

I recommend you practice this. Boot up a Lunatic AI and let it attack you. Then, Border Escape. On the ground, it's possible to BE forward (6), backward (4), highjump (2), highjump backward (1). In the air, it's possible to BE forward (6) and backward (4). Some melee hits like 6a and bullets like 5C tend to be easier to get the value from BE off (that is, being free from pressure) while other times you need to guess the timing if and once opponent adapts to your semi-consistent pressure escaping.

GGs. Playing conservative with spirit seems pretty good. Even if you get under pressure if you have more spirit left than you opponent they may have to over extend to crush. I think I've seen other marisas use 214 broom ride in combos more since it does obese damage. You could even spell cancel after it, not that I know marisas combos that well.

Like the games? Yes I did. I also enjoyed the posted replays as I can now become soku famous.

I've just conditioned myself not to use it since it's only useable from close range and I've drilled easy-looking combos that were usable from most ranges, so I often default to 6C instead, which also limits for 30% instead of 10%. It does do more damage. for what it's worth and I probably need to fix this bad habit of not using it at some point.

If you have the autopunch plugin, you can actually try to use it now. Simply host and post IP in the thread. If I can connect (despite your lack of forwarded ports) it's good, if not you're going to have to rely on other people hosting - with or without autopunch.

Those are valid options. The important thing is figuring out what situations are optimal to use those options. Since you stopped using them, you have no way to gain experience with how to use them.

For example, if you see your opponent running too early to where they think you'll be, you can often tech in the opposite direction to get a lot of space. Of course, you need to be able to recognize this to pull it off, and that requires experience. Sometimes teching into the corner from quarter screen is a good tactic if you think they are expecting you not to tech, or tech away from the corner. You want to minimize the opponent's knowledge of where you'll be.

You are correct with BE's potentially being dangerous in the corner (of course you should still use them when they will work). You need to understand opponent's corner offense works or else you will likely get caught by a player who expects it. HOWEVER, BE's are also extremely useful even outside of the corner, where they have both neutral and offensive uses. You can interrupt opponent's strings and move in ways that would otherwise be unsafe. For example, many characters have aerial pressure strings where you can BE forward past them and escape, or even attack them. If you aren't confident with the input for 2BE (looks like hj8) you should try to get it down. A good number of my ground melee moves you can escape with 2BE

You have a lot to learn and learning to graze and probably having a basic combo (beyond A spam into spellcard) is probably very high in your priority list.

Another problem I have is doing BE's correctly, especially the down BE one, I can't seem to find the correct frame for it
>do it to early, get hit

This is always tricky and a bit risky. Unlike regular BEs, you have to stop blocking to input it. As for the timing issue, there is a bit of a window directly after the last hit. HOWEVER if the block string is tight (no gaps) you can't BE until there is a gap. That means especially with 2BE you need to know that there is going to be a gap.

marisafag will often do a tight string into crush with master spark for example. At a certain point in the string you have no options aside from praying it doesn't crush. It infuriates me to know end, but it's a pretty short part of the string, makes me feel dumb for not seeing it coming every time.

ALSO, just remembered. You have to RIGHTBLOCK to successfully BE. That's something that you might not have known and would explain why you seem to randomly fail to BE sometimes.

Marisa's 6C and j.6C (beam and air beam) are unique in that once her opponent blocks them, it's impossible to BE out until their very last hit. However, once Yellow Ball (Luminous Strike; 2-card; Air OK) and Master Spark (3-card) are activated, you get what's known as spellflash. Spellflash is a spellcard effect during it's startup that prevents the defending party from Border Escaping for a short duration. This effectively means that if you ever block Marisa's 6C/j.6C (j.6C only reliably works with Luminous Strike - maybe also with other spellcards? while Master Spark works at any distance on the ground) with less than two orbs, Marisa can guarantee a crush on you by beaming, then cancelling into a spellcard just before the last hit and there is nothing you can do about it. The solution is, ideally to see this kind of stuff in advance and don't get hit by it when you're low on orbs and when Marisa has spellcards in hand. I'm sure other characters have similar BS to their name so this is fair. hosts here

>I play from sheer force alone
I feel like I'm playing like that myself, however I'm such a boring ass nerd I have read the entire wiki like 3 times by now. Still don't know everything there is to know and learn something new in every match
>I want to graze and then attack
One good advice I can give for that is to not think about attacking, but about expecting enemy attacks. There's only so much bullet that the enemy can trow at once but always assume they know and can cancel every one of their bullets into another bullet or into a melee and play around that by grazing AND blocking. 66 and 44 (different from using dash button) in the air are somewhat safe because you can queue a block as soon as your graze frames, along with also letting your own attacks come out faster than D6/D4 inputs, with the caveat of not being useful for trianglegrazing (which is just using flight to fly into the ground as quickly as possible in a diagonal manner to gain or maintain distance and then highjumping to continue dodging).
I don't do them lmaoeoam.
In a more serious note, they're incredibly useful WHEN you know the enemy's pressure is going to just be bullets. If you suspect them to know about BEs and try to spam them, they'll catch you with melee. Often blocking until the last second is more profitable as long as you don't encounter an opponent that can reliably guardcrush. Remember that most spellcards can be BE'd out of, except for instant-hitting ones like marisa's laser or ones that do melee hits like youmu's dash attack.

GGs, I had fun too.
I really should've been able to react to 22b/c and when I did my punish game was lacking.
KD set ups are rather rough too, Remi recovers far too quickly for me to be comfortable.
I think we would've done better if I respected you more and you respected me less.
well, there doesn't need to be a true gap, i.e. you can do it in a tight string, but you can't do it while in blockstop. most attacks have much less blockstop than blockstun, but most multi-hit attacks put you back into blockstop the moment the previous hit's blockstop ends, meaning you can't BE until after the last hit.
>>6852 is partially a separate phenomenon, >>6854 explains it well.
and yeah, most spellcards' spell flash doesn't last their entire duration, but since marisa's laser scs all have perpetual blockstop, you can't BE them after you start blocking.
i don't know what noachian deluge's blockstop looks like but it would definitely be possible to BE if even a few bullets whiff, or possibly even more often if the blockstop per bullet is very low.

and yeah, a lot of sakuyas fall into predictable pressure pretty easily. i suspect it's hard to be unpredictable since 6a, 3a, and j2a are all so useful in pressure, but they're also easy to see coming and BE. i don't know anything about sakuya, but those i've played either let me escape there or beat me.

After extensive testing and extreme frustration, fantasy heaven is only a punish on hangeki against:
-aya:     reasonably lenient when cancelling around f16, when the red swirl of the hengeki just dissapears
-komachi: needs to be delayed to 20f-ish since the hit is very meaty and late
-suika:   needs to be delayed to 18-20f-ish since the hit is late

It may be a frame perfect punish on a couple of others, but hitting 5a on the very first frame after the spell is quite difficult and not something that will have been practiced a lot.
Reimu tends to be +4 a lot after fantasy heaven cancel with around 16f reaction time, which is not good enough. Reacting sooner causes fantasy heaven I-frames (1-13f) to run out before the hankeki hits (~28f) meaning even frame perfect cancel is probably less +6f. I propose all hangeki excepts the above's are nerfed with at least 5-7f. This will lead to interesting game mechanics such as instantly loosing against reimu which will buff her up the tier list a bit.

This isn't a host post by the way. Just important research.

GG. Seems I can't help but go coach mode when I see a fellow youmu player. I hope that wasn't too annoying. You learned to block pretty fast with my charge 3a bullying. If I have any recommendations for you it would be to take more risks getting out of the corner next. You can block for a while but you will get crushed eventually if you don't walk or jump out. Though, maybe you were just humoring my defense lessons. 

Next, I would recommend you practice some block strings in practice mode. An easy one is repeating 5aaa 5b, dash in, repeat. Also, 2aaa, dash in, repeat. I of course did that a ton to you. Try mixing up some jump ins and other moves to create some variations Take a look at our replays for ideas to practice. These will allow you to do PRESSURE. The key to strike fear in the heart of the enemy.

You're defense is very gud.
thanks for the games anon
they were not flukes, I'd say we're evenly matched - maybe a bit in my favor based on the amounts of win but it's much closer than with anyone I've played. patchy feels kind of strong when it's 2 noobs playing, you can just spam spells and it mostly works.

Wind tunnel is the greasiest shit in the game. The better alternative to using it is to play a different character.
Replies: >>7103
I dunno m8 everyone that played against it seemed to be salty as fuck for some reason as far as I could tell
maybe it needs some practice to use properly, but then again losing the default 623 is hard too

Because it's autowin you can pair it with the Suwako landmine and the 5 card for the ultimate no fun allowed.

If you want some advice from a patchy main
>Asides from switching your 236 Fireball or 214 knives, everything is a sidegrade or a worse gimmick that depends on the opponent being retarded
>Fireball can be exchanged for a very punishable but stupid powerful flamethrower that has the highest bullet priority in he game and deals thousands of points in chip damage if blocked
>Or for a somewhat less ssfe melee swipe with no anti-air capability but STRONG ground pressure and high comboability as a finisher or frametrap in a blockstring
>Knives are already strong but you can switch them to a slower fireball that autoaims and has pretty high priority for such a large projectile
>Or a set of swords that you can hold menacingly to bait the opponent into melee range
Arguably you can also switch out 421 Dew Spear for Emerald whatever the fuck, since that's a true reversal DP as long as the opp doesn't realize he can just graze it. Switching out 623 Spring Wind might seem tentative but it really has decent utility by itself and the alternatives are either
>fake DP with long startup and highly punishable
>long charge windup into an instant projectile that is not a laser and has the absolute lowest priority in the game meaning even B bullets from cirno beat it
However note that at higher levels the instant projectile does explode into an AoE for obscene punish/counterhit damage and it can be comboed in the air if you hit the enemy with a 22 water geyser for sick points and subpar damage from across the screen, but i'd rather get levels in Fireball for the trails instead and the same type of utility, at a much easier input.

On that note, don't listen to what anyone says, all types of bubbles except the spellcard that literally makes you invulnerable  on command are useless and using them is akin to throwing the match. Unless the enemy undestimates the counterhit damage of big bubbles and tries to j5a you only to be hit for 5k damage by a triplestack of bubbles on their sprite instantly. Which again, depends on the opp being retarded enough to press a button inside a bubble.
Replies: >>7131
remember that time alice main told you how much he hates bubbles since their job is to GTFO and set up dolls? abuse that
aside from that, default 236C is crazy fast and hits like a truck, 421 dew spear is EXTREMELY fast with jump cancel (don't know why you don't spam it)
214 knives should be leveled too because the default ones get a homing effect; a214 sawblades are arguably a better alternative but they require some getting used to
623 is usually a big brain move since the B version's pushback is small so you don't get a lot of leeway but it's probably like a situationally useful coin when it works, it's fine to switch to a DP if you're having trouble learning how to use the default one, but as usual, don't overuse it (it gains i-frames on L2 so take 4 of them if you run it)
do not underestimate 4b5c spellcard/mixup during pressure it is extremely effective
noachian/harvester/silent selene/royal flare are very effective spellcards and you should learn how to use them
it might be an autistic wall of text and I don't main patchy but she's a fun character to play as and there's some depth to it

GGs, it felt like all of Yukaris moves where "safe" and she could block after them. For projectiles where superior to anything suika could do, and all her attacks seemed faster then Suika's jab. I don't know what I could do in certain situations except turtle and look for an opening.
