In my opinion Josie is by far the worst character in T7, her animations are one of the most generic shit I've ever seen in a fighting game...there is nothing unique or memorable about her move list at all other than that she moves like a kangaroo lol, they even changed a lot of bruce's signature moves like the low kick to uppercut and the triple knee move into something boring.

In short, kill Josie and bring back Bruce.

Well said.

I used to be able to easily do Julia's shotgun combos in past Tekken games using just a standard qcf motion. But now I can't seem to do these combos at all in Tekken 7. :/

I'm playing with dualshock 4, which I also used for Tag 2.

Interesting, it seems like the Tekken World Tour rules on stage selection have been changed. If you lose a game you may now select any stage as long as you don't change your character.

From the TWT rules page:
8.1.5. Stage Selection
For the first Game of the Match, players will utilize Random Stage Selection. For each subsequent Game in the Match, the Player who lost the previous Game may choose a stage if they have not changed their character (see Tie Games in 8.1.6 for exceptions). If the losing Player has chosen to change their character they must use Random Stage Selection.

This is a great change IMO. Though I feel like they need to add some more stages for this to have a better effect for viewers. As is, there's only one floorbreak stage, so certain characters (King) will ALWAYS choose that one. Would be nice for them to add some new stages in an update/dlc and mix it up a bit, have a stage with a floor AND balcony break or something.

I agree, the change is very good, but the lack of diversity in stages is a little bit of an issue. I like the new (old) stages that came with the latest update, but I think it would have been better if they had added even one new stage instead. Of course it's much more work for them, so I understand why that didn't happen.

Now that we got the new jungle stage, I have been thinking it would have been really cool if it wasn't just a visual mod, but the stage had some differences. I mean, what if for instance the first part of the stage had a breakable floor? Then you would have the option to go downstairs with either a balcony break or a floor break, and then you would still have a wall available. I think that would be really cool!

Twilight Conflict 2 is slightly different. It has the balcony break on the other side, but that's how it was originally too. They are just 7.0 versions of the stages.

Usually when players are allowed to select stages they go for small or infinite stages depending on their characters.

Which way do you sidestep Julia? especially her safe hopkick exploit
I'm not sure I'd call it an exploit since it's been in previous Tekkens.

Side walking either side works best, but a SSL is much better than a SSR attempt. Depending on your character's side step rating, you can SSL the hop kick completely (Lili, Alisa who can step either side) or pretty much not at all (Gigas). Test your character to see what works.

For those that can SSL, some of them might get clipped by the first kick, but the second will whiff for a free launch.

Lastly, I think that Julia in general is more vulnerable to SSR.
