Of all the things they could do, this is quite possibly the only thing worse than what they have currently. If that's the ground system, instant no buy. Phone Post 3.0

MMAismylife - "Revamped Parry" Why not just completely remove this stupid feature? In all the times I've sparred or watched MMA fights I've never seen anyone slap their opponents hand away and spin them half way around off balance like in EA UFC. Its stupid easy to use and over effective. I understand its to help against spammers but with that being said they could just make your stamina drain faster so you cant hook spam. I think they should go UFC 3's route and add feints. I hear constantly on commentary "USE UR FEINTS" well...I would but yeah. The ground system looks alot better but thats not saying much EA UFC 1's was trash. I'll buy it but my expectations are low expecially after the "Revamped parry"
This. I never understood the parry system. It's nonsense. Get rid of it all together. Phone Post 3.0

I especially agree with the stamina point. They initially put in the parry system to counter spammers. Then they revamped the stamina system to encourage spammers. Now all you have is guys spamming strikes and parries.

Just manage the damn stamina system better. If you spam strikes, you should get tired period. None of this blocking takes more stamina than striking crap.

And replace the parry system with the ability to slip and counter.
Maybe even introduce "the Goldie slip-n-rip" special move. Phone Post 3.0

mix headroom - How about no head kicking someone 40 times without KOing them? Biggest reason the last game blew.

I love the UFC and MMA as much as the next guy but how the fuck could anyone have liked last years game? As a video game it was fucking horrible, career mode is boring they let you hop weight classes but don't let you pick what weight classes won't let you fight for a 2nd belt. The online play is horrifying the act that 90% of people who play simple pick a guy like mcgregor and do nothing but throw 50 straight body kicks and end the fight by playing to the glitch. Way to many fucking glitches in that game and considering EA sports track record I don't expect this one to be any better.

Exactly parries are realistic especially for southpaws and meyhodical strikers like Werdum. But in reality they are a small movement before the start of a counter strike Phone Post 3.0

The ground game in general sounds worrisome this time around.

"Instead of the classic half-circle rotation to stand up or change position, users are presented the option to hold the joystick in a certain direction to load a bar to achieve a desired move."

"This launches both players into the same submission mini-game as seen on the previous title, so that aspect of the ground game remains unchanged."

What still erks me is the fact that every fighter can do jump kicks off the cage and stuff. We need realistic move sets for each fighter. Not every fighter goes for spinning back fists & superman punches.

Since they don't pay the fighters at all for it it's possible, but I'd bet they're counting multiple weight classes of the same fighter towards that number. BJ Penn alone counts for like 5
