Title: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: rJay on January 30, 2010, 01:14:14 PM
I just saw that masuo0 and kurono-K got 987k on MA with a Midnight/STARS team. This is one of a few Midnight/STARS scores that have surfaced lately along with the 1000k+ score achieved by ak453bwsky on SD and the 985k on Prison by masuo (both Midnight/STARS scores).

Do you think that STARS is becoming the new high scoring character for stages with high cephalo rates do to his ability to melee kill them more easily than any other character?

Also, Yaritaiji and Divergent flow got 873k on The Mines with a double Wester STARS team.

Discuss.

SERIOUSLY???? God finally Wesker STARS is being recognized for how good he is, not because of the "Hydra Spamming". And yes, I do think STARS is becoming the new high scoring character.

It sure seems like it. Of course, it does require insane accuracy to be able to use STARS Wesker properly, as we all know. The only real advantages he has over Midnight is easy Cephalo melees and faster boss killing at close range.

Post by: justMatt on January 30, 2010, 02:12:25 PM
He is basically the same as midnight for a good player except with cephalo melee ability so I think he may dominate soon. also he can use yaritaiji's AR dash method on normal town majini, although not on wetlands lol

its not so easy to melee ceph if theres a group of majini. i tried it got 912 with golemx. u get hit after u switch to hawk everytime unless ure farther but i myself use it as much as midnight now. Hydra > M500> Reaper

Post by: RD on January 30, 2010, 03:12:14 PM
It's pretty obvious. Stars is very fast killer. Both regular majini and bosses. Also he melees Cephalos, but that's pretty dangerous and health consuming. The most good part is that his handgun is pretty effective for dash melees. Every normal town majini can take 2 leg shots and die from dash.

Maybe I start using him seriously too.

I know that a good amount of people knew how to use him effectively for a while now, but I think that Prison video has really opened the eyes of a lot more people as to STARS' true potential. I'll admit, I was one of the pessimists about STARS' effectiveness as compared to Midnights. I'm starting to think I was very wrong.

I think in the coming weeks, we will be seeing a lot more Wesker Stars appearing in the top leaderboard spots.

Its mainly his ''weak'' magnum for cephalo dashing and mustang kick with his strong pistol to avoid cephalo in some cases.

looks like STARS will be the next big thing...i dont think the weaken/dash tactic is being used enough yet either. you can build stupid amounts of time with it. what about when someone joins your game and picks STARS, how do you know if they hydra spam or not XD

suiciding will be a pain as well

Not necessarily. I'm think a lot of the teams will be Midnight/STARS, not double STARS, so at least one person can kill themselves quickly xD

i just relised the joke inside that comment, not intentional XD
i think il start practicing with STARS as well, in my opinion if cephalos>crits on your side of the run then STARS should be picked. . man i really hope kuruno-k uploads that run.


Title: Re: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: justMatt on January 30, 2010, 04:45:20 PM
I think STARS would be top if he had midnights outfit lol
He's not so good at wetlands though because they cant take two shots from his pistol so his dash tactic doesnt work

Yes, but it takes more time than you gained from melee killing, and wastes much ammo (serious: 8 bullets are too much since in some runs the ammo drops are very useless...)

Not really. If you have Midnight as your partner he's only doing half the job.

Double STARS Wesker though would be interesting.

I even noticed a 900k SD score with Jill BSAA and a STARS Wesker. He's very underrated. I personally like using him more than Midnight. He can be very effective against Wetland Majini as well.

Wesker Stars is difficult to play, Midnight is easier, people are less motivated with Stars, but its goes can be changed.

The reason people mocked you was because you made ridiculous claims with no proof, like how Wesker STARS' hit box was larger than Midnight's. Remember that one?

another observation after all day of whoring STARS on most maps. Less criticals overall. i think it s pierceing dmg prevents from crits. Also its harder to use him, got to be very quick. Lots of weapon swaps. need more healing.

Post by: andrew932 on January 31, 2010, 08:23:54 PM
You don't really need the shotgun. if you get a cephalo just use 1 magnum shot and dash.

Post by: NEXUS on January 31, 2010, 10:30:15 PM
I dont think it is a accurate way to tell if wesker stars is better just by seeing some pro's get high scores with him. Yes, he is a lot easier to use when it comes to cephalo's, but you have to have INSANE aiming before you can get a high score with him. There could be multiple reasons for why there are a lot of wesker stars highscores on the LB now. Maybe everyone is just getting tired of midnight wesker and are using stars instead. I think wesker stars is not really the new dominant character, but more like the most popular character now. I still think it is easier to get highscores with midnight but i guess it kind of depends on the person aswell. There are lots of players that use stars better then midnight.


Title: Re: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: Kyzer89 on January 31, 2010, 10:30:52 PM
i doubt midnight will ever be rubbed out.  I think stars/midnight teams will become more apparent in the future but not double stars. Double midnights i think will remain strong because stars isnt needed in every level, just the one with high cephalo rate.


Title: Re: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: spider_knows on February 01, 2010, 10:06:51 AM
u right kyzer i agree completely. maps like pa, vill , ar , and maybe ship will remain double midnight. but mines ,ef, ma and pri will most likely b stars midnight or  2 stars. and even if u do use stars its only for the spawn where is more ceph. mines exception. and nexus u mean its easier to meele ceph with stars right? cuz if u think  its easy to do it u should really try it my man.


Title: Re: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: yautjared on February 01, 2010, 10:22:59 AM
indeed, Midnight/Stars team could be very strong, if the STARS players know how to use his different weapon set. Using L.Hawk and Hydra only in certain enemies ( chepalos and bosses), and using Samurai Edge most of the time, trying to making hs + cobra strike when this weapon let you do it .............

the only disadvantage I can see on STARS , comparing with Midnight, it's that his Samurai Edge is too powerful , and make critical shots much more often, diminishing the frequency of HS+Cobra Strike , besides that, he has decent weapons, and can do it anything that Midnight already does.

i mean u can pky w him maybe on mines but that's it. what u gotta learn is crowd control w cephs included and how to dash. sounds funny but it's a fact.
f.e.: it's getting close w combo. don't shoot fucking ceph twice w samurai edge + l. hawk and do stupid dash. one to body or ceph itself w l. hawk + 1 shot S.E and finish it w dash + 45 degree turn and hit that mfka twice lol

same w wetland majinis. 1 shot w samurai edge + that 45 degree thing. u'll hit him twice in one dash

Post by: Jaz_B on April 21, 2010, 11:49:25 AM
tom is right, crowd control with cephalos and fat guys takes time with stars, especailly with combo flashing. obviously a player like masuo or yari will just make an instant switch to stars with minimal effort lol

Post by: zombie_02 on April 23, 2010, 06:26:25 AM
I take STARS melee kills useless.

How much time you waste by switching through weapons to shoot the gephalo? Then you have to dash through him <- while a majini tries to hit you and almost always succeeds and you even lose health while dashing. So to actually get any use of this gephalo dashing, you would have to hit another majini in the same dash with knee kick. And how usual is this? + All the other majinis around you, who are trying to kill you while you're shooting 5 seconds 1 gephalo.

Then killing Mr.T (Fat man), how much time does it waste to first switch to magnum then shoot him with magnum and again switch to pistol and shoot him and melee him?

So, my point is:

You waste atleast 5 seconds to kill a gephalo with dash, then you get those 5 secs back from him and MAYBE even kill another majini in the same dash with knee kick and another +5 sec for you. <- Or what you could do, is play with midnight, kill the gephalo in 2 fucking seconds with his magnum, then shoot next majini in the head and maybe even get a double? Which one is better?

And the Mr.T, you shoot him ONCE in the leg then dash/cobra him. So you've lost 2secs with shooting and gained another 5sec or maybe even more if dashing and kneeing another majini.

All from the above explains why I don't fancy STARS. He doesn't even have pistol ammo enough every round.

I see what you are saying, but think of it this way:

When you get a cephalo with Midnight, you lose time no matter what. When you get one with STARS,you lose about 5 sec preparing to kill it, but then you gain that 5 sec back, so you are basically maintaining time (not losing any at all). But with Midnight, despite how fast he can kill them with his magnum, time is always lost and never maintained.

This is especially effective on stages like Prison where one spawn gets about 90% of the cephalos.Would you rather lose time gradually on cephalos with Midnight, or maintain the time at a constant with STARS?

I hope you understand  ;)

Title: Re: Is Wesker STARS becoming the new dominant character for high scores?
Post by: DrU-UrD on April 23, 2010, 10:41:25 AM
takes too much time if the combo flashes already. it's not 45 in and 45 out.... it's moren when u dash and hit majini do the quick direction change...45 degrees or maybe 49,76 lool

Post by: Robbo566 on April 23, 2010, 10:48:10 AM
rJay got it spot on. Also, it should take around 3 seconds to dash a cephalo, not 5 seconds. Well 3 seconds for the setup anyway, might take longer depending on how far away the cephalo is.

If you are getting hit a lot while setting up cephalo melees then you are doing it wrong.

Also, regarding the Big Man Majini, yes the setup is slower but it is much more versatile. Especially on prison, where there is a high chance the Big Man will get injured by molotovs (for example). As Midnight, after a magnum shot almost any damage on top will be enough to kill him.

Post by: justMatt on April 23, 2010, 10:59:39 AM
Its when you get lots of dash kills along with cephalo melee that really makes STARS useful. miyu13sai's vids are a good example. In the AR vid he almost always kills 2 or more majini with each dash

big man getting damaged by molotovs isnt a problem on prison...u dont get molotovs on cell side and thats where stars plays...

I was just using it as an example, I suppose Mines applies more.

Also, if he gets hit by a Hydra shot (while your killing an Ex on Prison), STARS can melee him easier.

Am i the only one that still uses 2 cobra strikes to kill the fat guys?  I know it's slower but i often kill a majini with the first cobra and sometimes kill one with the second one too, so 10-15 sec for about a 6 second setup overall.

For obvious reasons. If you don't get a headshot as stars you are screwed for the melee unless you dash. Midnight lets you have more oppurtunities as well as faster/easier boss melee.

I'd take stab at it and guess the closest possible shot with the Hydra is almost exactly the same in strength as the .500 Magnum. With the Hydra you get compacted spray meaning some of the shot will hit the head if aimed correctly resulting in higher HP damage.

Screwed for the melee? o.0 Just shoot the leg after the missed shot. THEN u have to dash if he doesnt react for the second except u play wetlands.

All that just for 5 seconds. Midnight lets you get more oppurtunities and lets you still use the cobra strike.

But STARS doesn't look as gay. Midnight looks like he's heading down to Bad Billies after the game.

Wesker STARS looks more chubby though, so he probably has lower self-esteem and is more self-conscious than Midnight is.

He could be useful on PA for getting lots doubles with the dash, or preventing criticals

Stars is much better On SD than Midnight. And most people who pick on STARS are just too bad to use him imo lol.

But he has money. It's hard to be self-conscious about weight, when your balling like a star that's floating down the plain while flying through the sky and tumbling through space.

bumping because this is an actual interesting read from the past from many people still in the game. i suggest to read the topic and read the opinions of W. STARS and the beginning of his use.

I remember when everyone thought he was shit. My old xbox live account -Axlrose1979- is still buried halfway down the leaderboards somewhere, with a bio that reads: ''STARS Wesker sucks''

lol

There were two main reasons that people initially didn't like STARS

1) They made too many bullet kills because their accuracy wasn't great

2) OMG HYDRA BOOM BOOM BOOM
