4p Tag mode possible?
« on: August 12, 2007, 08:26:02 AM »
Unless I'm completely over looking something, I couldn't figure out how to do it.

I realize Team mode is 4 player, but is there any way to have 4p tag? Would be so much fun.

Hmm..I don't think so.

You can try pressing buttons on player three and four at the char select screen, but I'm already guessing you've tried that.

Maybe it'll get into a future patch.

I think the main reason they won't do something like this is the fact that while two people are playing the other two are sitting on their ass waiting to be tagged in. This can cause many fights outside of the game seeing that people won't want to wait to be tagged and when they are tagged I'm sure that more often than not they won't be prepared. (especially after 2 hours or so of matches)

This is just my own opinion though, who knows if they will ever bring this idea to life.

yeah logical, but i dont see why not. if you agreed to play tag match then you agreed to sit your ass out untill tagged in. it's always been that way in games. i dunno  i've been playing tag match alot, and aslong as if you keep the sudden death setting on, it gives you incentive to switch out to the other player when your getting your ass beat.

also theres the whole issue on maturity and strategy over playing for the sake of playing.

otherwise theres always dramatic battle.

4p tag battles in DoA are heaps of fun, and I think the key is that you are still very involved with the match, even when tagged out. You're watching for weaknesses, tipping your partner off, hoping they don't get beaten, hoping they can get away for a second to tap you in; you're both really in it together.

I'm pretty sure your life bar doesn't slowly recover when you're tapped out in this game, however, so there would be less motivation to tap your partner in. Man, a tag-team hack for this game would rule...

actually it does recover.. just EXTREMELY SLOW. but if you stay in long enough i believe it recovers past redzone (someone correct me on this)


also heres hoping for the next patch to have 4p tag :3

I noticed it recovering life, but only red zone.  Granted, I haven't payed too much attention to it.

2664.  Its all about the 2664.

Well, think about it this way.

You have 4 people sitting around playing. in a 1on1 setting, the 2 people not playing are going to be waiting longer than in a 2v2 tag setting.

Also, whenever netplay patch is completed, this would be amazing.

on a random note. tag combos are very possible to pull off. it just a bit tricky. i was able to try out a few with white len and nanaya.

That's cool. At least it's not hella broken DOA4 tag. I could see a tag division in a tournament as a very viable thing.

Yeh.  Only thing that seems to have a shot at being broken is Aoko's orbs.  Even then it seems like you would need some hard to land in the middle of a real game setup so it evens out.  Also need to figure out how to avoid that nasty glitch...
