I'd rather have more color slots. I didn't think I'd like that feature so much. <_>

So there's an expert input gem that requires precise inputs. I'm guessing if you equip that it'll give you some sort of bonus to attack, defense, or speed. Still I'm not getting how this gem could be practical online, unless it's there for bragging rights. Anyone else care to throw in there 2 cents because I'm not getting why someone would use this gem.

Pros with godly execution could use it, and get more results for the same effort that they've been doing all along.

OH WAIT THATS RIGHT, CANT USE EM IN TOURNEYS LOLOLOL

That would be pretty interesting to watch. A pro money match with extra cash thrown for both players using that gem. It could produce some crazy matches, I wonder if any pro will pick it up and use it on a stream.

Pandora extender is a great addition. It makes a useless mechanic into something actually viable in a match. That ultimate guard gem though....that is broken and awful in so many ways it's insane

that auto everything gem....almost useless. if juri does a M senpusha and they autolock, they just lost all that meter and juri gets a free combo.

and pandora extender...so now players turtle for 20 seconds instead of 8? genius...just couldnt leave it alone...could ya?

What Juri says, goes. Disagreeing will result in punishment of her choosing. So want to disobey?

At least with 20 secs you have time to get in thee and do something about the turtling. Plus if you really wanted to use them there all several gems that give an even bigger boost on pandora activation. So you can actually make it work.

Blame EVO for not knowing how to run tournaments and manage their time. One of the most amateurish overrated tournaments ever.
