    This thread is going to serve as an index of content around the net that may be helpful to players that are looking to improve. The idea is that players can be pointed to this thread as a first place to look if they are looking for advice to improve on a specific aspect of their gameplay.

    If you know of a guide, article, or other content that you think should go here, reply to this link and I'll add it.

    I've cleaned up the list a bit and added a couple more. I'm sure there are a bunch of new guides I've missed, so please comment here if you know of any so I can add them to the OP.

    Oh yeah. I'll add that now. Most of the guides listed are also from MDE/SQG, so I'm not sure how many of those are now irrelevant.

    It's cool. This is really just an index of sorts, so every guide out there should be added if we know about it.

    So I've noticed that a lot of the links are of general tactics to practice.
    I made some videos of some slightly more advanced tech for people to practice and utilize.

    So the first video is of the fan favorite "wavedash"
    Show Spoiler
    Wave dashing is a tactic utilized by Filia only but you can see it in other games also its just a way to move faster cause "gotta go fast!"
    Show Spoiler


    The next video is a demonstration of "kara" moves
    Show Spoiler
    A kara move is a means of increasing the range of specials and supers in this video we will look at kara throwing with Cerebella :)
    Show Spoiler

    If any one has any questions about these tactics just shoot me a message and I'll try to clear up any confusion you might have and hey if your on steam I might be willing to work with you on utilizing these things :)

    I don't think wave dashing with Filia is that much of a benefit unless someone can prove that it opens up new tech.

    It makes you track the opponent so you can chase people that jump over you or jump backwards without having to visually confirm it, and I already told you that you can do tech chases with wavedash to chase both ways without guessing

    Wavedashing is a lot faster than just Dashing/Running, and Filia wants to get in the opponent's face, and that happens sooner the faster she's able to move.

    Why would you need "new tech" for 'faster movement' to be good? Completely lost

    Wave dashing is also a very scary thing to witness when utilized. Now I'm not an expert by any means at this game but I like to think that when people see someone wave dashing they panic and do something stupid which can be punished

    I added some useful threads from the gameplay forum to this and removed the sticky status of those threads in that forum, but I also made a redirect to this thread in the gameplay forum to make it more accessible.

    Just noticed that the fortune compendium is under archived MDE guides for whatever reason?

    @worldjem

    Also I don't see how removing the sticky status is gonna make anything more accessible

    Well, the beginner resources thread is in the beginner forum only, so I put a redirect in the gameplay section so people don't have to keep navigating to the beginner forum to get to the thread.

    There are way too many stickies in the gameplay forum, so I'm trying to cut it down by consolidating the meaningful threads under one index.

    But lots of those threads are very useful not only for beginners, a player from another game might miss them because he doens't feel that this thread is appropriate for him

    Then, should it be renamed to "Gameplay Resources?"

    Because that's what I was going to make in the gameplay forum, but it seemed redundant when we have the beginner resource thread with all the same info.

    I would like that actually, but I also think that having "beginner" in the title is a good thing since it draws attention from those who need it...

    Can you make a redirect with a different name from the original thread?

    @CaioLugon How's that?

    It's good to get to know the community. I'd say the player compendium is coming along nicely, and has garnered a decent amount of attention. Any way it could be a part of this, or stickied in this section?

    Really useful lists, pretty good stuff included here and great information tools overall.

    Noted : Under the universal FG info list, the "on playstyles and useful terminology" link redirects to a 404.

    Since we're on the topic of general Fighting game info, I'd like to suggest that http://drunkardshade.com/ has some neat info on their general guides. You folks could give them a read. Also keep in mind it's a growing site.
