So friendly matches do exist, it just has to be unlocked.

No idea what level it unlocks at yet, but here's proof:



There's even another difficulty called Battle Master...


Edit: So we can already do Player Matches, it's just that we use that accept request method. It will eventually be unlocked under Global Battle and it should consist of just 1 round just how it's set right now.

Friend Match is the one we should be looking forward to.

Battle Master gets unlocked, but we need to purchase it with SP/gold.

Can't tell if more will be added, but at the moment, there's no hidden characters.

So how do we do friendly matches exactly? I'm not clear about this.

Do we have to unlock it by playing vs the CPU, or online against other people? Or can it be unlocked now - or is it already unlocked? How do we invite a friend to a match?

If its anything like Player Match in Third Strike Online you'd probably have to create a lobby (which it would surprise me if they had lobbies in this game, but it'd be cool) and then send someone an invite. I highly doubt it would be like that but you never know.

Kinda crazy that they'd lock it. Eric, what level are you and Volo at?

Found more new stuff randomly:



Thank god it's not a Ryu dupe. They will be added in upcoming updates. As of right now, there's no files for them.

I'm looking forward to keep leveling up now that I know friendly mode exists.

Just reached level 32. Love faking it that I'm a huge noob and get them revenge exp when they rematch me and get blown up.

Great job digging this stuff up. What's your system these days? Typically I go 1 loss x 3 wins x 1 loss x 3 wins, etc. Works pretty well and I'm up to level 20 with that system. Level 32 though . . . wow.

That's pretty much how I do it. I always go to sleep with 0 coins too. I found out that with every coin that we use, the # of wins allowed to earn exp accumulates. So let's say you lose twice, you lose two coins. Then, the next 6 games or so, you will be earning exp for all of them.

One thing I haven't tested is if those revenge exp can be earned through normal wins.

Do you lose two straight and then win six straight? I generally don't lose two straight on purpose because I don't want to miss out on those revenge points.

As for the coins, are you saying that when we use gold to buy 3 new coins, that permanently increases the number of wins in a row that will actually earn exp (before it wins start equaling zero increase in exp?). I guess I'm not too sure what you mean by that.
