Every match I play now is nothing more than people trying to do do a launcher and juggle over and over and over again. No other strategies, no other moves. When I win, it's boring. When I lose, it's annoying.

This series has gone down the tubes.

the tekken he grew up with and loved probably consisted of people who didn't know how to play tekken to begin with.

if you want to experience that type of play again i suggest you bring your console out on the street and start doing offline matches with random people you don't know.
If console gaming is so cheap then why do I have to spend $600~ in order to play Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 3 and Halo 3?

Tekken had been always about very high damage juggles on high tier level gameplay

Upper High and average had been always about very few juggles and mostly high damage pokes or mini-combos (I am right here)

The below-average or lower gameplay is basically nothing but high defense and few pokes with almost non existant juggles.

And the lowest of the lowest levels of gameplay are composed by Christie / Eddy / Tigger XOXOXOXOXO and Kazuya´s u/f + 4,4,4,4 + beam attack

It's obvious those weren't put in on purpose and are akin to infinites in Marvel. In the case of this game, emphasis is placed on juggling your opponent. I don't see what's so fun about fighting against the same strategy every match or playing hackey sack with my defenseless opponent

Never was huge in Tekken 1, but I'm pretty sure I remember the Juggle-fight being important then.... in Tekken 2 Juggling was pretty much how EVERY Combo worked for me. If you couldn't juggle, you couldn't win at the arcade. I'm surprised that you feel that Juggling is game breaker now and not before. Don't get me wrong, there's more rewards for Juggling now than before, but its more than possible to get by in a higher level game with just a ground game, especially with characters have lots of strong 2-hit combos, in conjuncture with the wall

Juggling was even worse before. And just because you were too young to juggle properly, like most of us, didn't mean they weren't there and that they didn't do crazy dmg.
