Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Why are all OG females black cords in capoeira?

    The light attacks are taekwondo, mediums are definitely capoeira and heavy could go either way; however, since it starts with a ginga, I'm inclined to think it's the latter.
  • Those are some characters that were introducing in the beginning of the game (apart from Black Widow, which was introduced some months later).
    The animation on those old champions was almost the same at that time. Only after introducing a couple other characters that the team started to create new gameplay animations

    I'm talking about the females.
    Here is a list of techniques for capoeira:

    Variations of 2nd medium:

    Sidenote:

    Tekken does a very good job of encompassing the disciplines with Eddy and Christy for capoeira and Baek and Hwoarang for taekwondo.

    Also, taekwondo has a kick like their heavy, but it's a double kick in the air.

    And again, the ginga at the start says capoeira.

    the explanation is that back when the game launched Kabam had a small staff, from what I read, and so that's why a lot of early characters have very similar animations and even very similar looking character models (female, male, bigger male (Colossus, Drax), biggest male(Hulk, Abomination) plus skinny male for Spidey.) and why there's only about 6 victory animations between the earliest characters. It actually annoys the snot out of me to see characters reusing the generic male victory animation of Cap/IM/Star-Lord/IP/SIM after all these years and the much better ones we've had since.
  • They must have been watching the Bob's Burgers episode with Capoeira as they were designing some moves 😀😀😀

    I like to think they're Only the Strong fans.

    Yeah, I know. Just seems an odd set of moves for generic attacks.

    @Hamin sorry that this is irrelevant to the discussion, but did your “a summoner and his champions” get cancelled?
  • HaminHamin Posts: 2,444 ★★★★★
    @Moot4Life yes. The network pulled the plug.
