I'm so upset I don't know where to start so I'm just going to ramble. Try and stay with me.

EVERY player online just throws 1,000's of punches and there is nothing you can do about it. Try and step back, counter, and throw a couple power punches?? Never happen, that person mashing their stick is going to disrupt that punch and you never get it off. There's no parry so you can't even make them pay for throwing the same punch 50 times in a row!!! (And by the way this was the Number 1 player on XBOX 360 with a record of 45-3, but every player I've faced has been like this) They've turned every fighter on the game into a Joe Calzaghe clone!!! Millions of punches and no need for precision.

There are 3 weight classes in online....3! So you better pick the biggest, hardest puncher so you stand a chance. Might as well have no reason to put the smaller guys in that weightclass in there. Every guy is about the same speed anyways...

I don't know....i'm just pissed. They got half the game right.....but why the **** couldn't they see that they've made it impossible to play the game like a true boxing game. The stick mashers in this game are a million times worse than any button mashers. And the sad thing about it is you have to play like that just to keep up.

This sucks.:wtf1:

Aww ****.

Can't you keep them away with the jab? Or defend until they tire out?

Or does the stamina go down too slow?

just clinch, push and go to the body. a few rounds thru they will slow down and u can take them out. rope-a-dope em or something.

u can slow the pace down though with sliders, cant u agree on those things for online fights aswell? eighter way i dont think we can fully trust a guy whos complaining about the parry system being gone. :lol1:

Also do you know how to bob & weave efficiently? If not, practice it. I played my friend who constantly spammed but I just bob & weaved which I've gotten very good at, uppercut, and attack the body (which takes more stamina away) and that's all there was too it. Also use push effectively and haymaker away to the body.

I found it pretty awesome, I find it really easy to win against those types of people. Just counter over and over and over. Always results in a KO down the line, cause theres no precsion. I have faced a few guys that have stayed back and tried to counter though, which I find it harder to face though guys though cause I don't like moving forward.

yeah the counters are basically the new parrys....i can beat the **** out of friends who throw loads........my brother is actually pretty good timing his blocks, so he gives me some beatings, lol...it's still **** though, i dont like unrealistic freezes....and outside boxing is impossible because your jab can be countered esily and footwork is slow, like i said, all thanks to the freezing that the fight night series seems to love...it shouldve been like VB.......allow better upper body movement(not as exageareted as in VB though) and counter in real time..........

well if your block meter was low then it makes sense you got KO'd, because punches will slip through your guard when your block meter is depleted.

If not, then well you got screwed!!

Also it may depend on who your fighting as well. For example if you're fighting Mike Tyson, his punches are more powerful and thus will break the guard easier then say sergio mora.

I hope I can find ways to slow down their punch output online but so far have not.

I know you will say "get better" etc but its NOT that I am loosing I have beaten these guys its just lame when they throw 900 punches in 6 rounds. Even when stamina bar is all the way down they can still throw 15 punches in 10 seconds.

That's exactly my point.

It's not that I'm losing it's that I have to resort wagging that stick mindlessly to keep up.

You guys keep saying, "Oh it's easy, just counter them but it isn't that easy when they are throwing 30 punches in 10 seconds". Yes, in Fight Night Round 3 I considered myself a sharpshooter with guys like Winky Wright and Jeff Lacy. They were slower, solid fighters that I made sure that my punch got to the target and counted. It's impossible to do that in this game. I can't wind up for a haymaker because they are stopping the punch. No biggie that I can understand. So that leaves a regular punch counter like an uppercut and that's not deterring anybody.

And since everyone's an expert and I suck so bad.....come get me. My gamertag is GoldenboyGQ I'll be on the rest of the night probably.

My homeboy was the biggest button masher in the previous fight night games, and he is a big time stick spammer. We only played the FN4 demo so far, and he beat me a lot cuz he didnty care how many punches he threw since its only a three round fight, but I got used to it and now I beat him regularly in 3 round fights. Hit them to the body a lot. Use your jab and movement to get them off balance and when thety least expect it, hit em with a haymaker while moving(just let them get kinda close to you). Since he got the demo, he has beaten me more uintil recently and he was never knocked me down once. I have knocked him down 7 times in 20 matches(yes we count). I gotta play tommorrow. Hopefully I can find someone with the real game.

06-24-2009, 11:39 PM
I'm not complaining too much about having to learn TPC but let's be honest.....as crappy as the parrying was it made you think twice about throwing a punch and forced you to come up with more creative combo's. When guys throw in this game the are throwing with no care in the world. Yes, there are counters that stun and even knockdown the opponent but most counters don't do enough to stop them from throwing 1,000 more punches that round.

It's just easier for a masher to wiggle a stick then push buttons.

lmao, so the people that just jab or throw non stop straights are the easiest to beat! The first 3 people I fought thought that was cool, throwing hundreds of straights, all it takes is a few bob & weaves followed with a hook and it's either put them in stun mode or a flash knockdown. These cats suck.

So far undefeated online and I actually box and counter punch.

I think as the days progress (it's been one day) you'll see less and less of this.

dude it was this guy who would now stop spamming punches....so i was like "i'll just wait it out"

so a few ronds and counters later i end up winning the fight via KO lol

and i aggre majority of these cats suck....im 6-1 so far.

Man just got the game today and went on to champion ship mode and beat a guy with a 13-0 record. I had no practice with the guy I just created so I was worried, but found my groove and knocked this boxer/counter puncher out in 5 rounds with no practice. This game is fun as hell. I also played 2 online with real boxers. I was Mike Tyson both times and the other guy was George Foreman and Ali.

The George Foreman player would try to throw non stop like an idiot, but I would just block and weave and counter to the body and take his stamina very low and pound away. He threw 80 punches in the first round, by the 3 round I destroyed him because of his stamina and punche himself out early.

Ali guy was boxing like Ali and doing a good job until I caught him slipping and got him with the trade mark bob and weave counter with his trade mark left to the body and uppercut to the face. It was a thing of beauty to watch. After I floored him, I jumped on him and finished him off within a few seconds.

Just learn how to play the game smart and you can beat alot of those guys that fight just to slug it out. Heres a trick to try on some of those people who fight like that. Since all they want to do is come forward and swing away, create some distance by either pushing him them back or just backing away just enough so their out of punching distance and then unleash a Haymaker uppercut and I'm 80 % sure that you'll land the punch while their coming foward trying to swing away. Don't do it all the time though, just do it if thats all their trying to do . Its pretty funny watching them just coming forward and swing, but when they do, they run in to a huge haymaker punch.

I must say this game is 10 times better than Round 3 and 100 times more realistic in every category.

I bought a ps3 for the sole purpose of playing fight night round 4, now I'm thinking about trading it in for MGS4! If you had a method of success in FNR3 you will almost always lose in this game. I wasn't the parry guy, I was the slip and counter guy, the stand in the pocket and slip and counter ever punch you threw...Now I'm the slip and punch and then get hit three times right after slipping a punch. They reward your stamina as long as you are connecting with punches, so now everybody, flyweight and Heavyweights can throw 200 punches per round, with no consequence. Don't get me started on the new clumsly ass "New Total Punch Controls". This game totally sucks ass!
