at this point, I'd probably pick oleander. I expect this to change as we get updates

Nobodies' really said Tian yet, might be worth it to bring this topic back up once we've seen some of her. Maybe even pin this since this will likely be a common thought until the game's release.
This will definitely be big topic once the game comes out. Who knows, maybe I'll main the goat. x)

An Alternate Timeline
Tianhuo would be my main only because she doesn't stick out to most players and I like playing what's not in favor as a surprise. Also that and her name is pretty hard to remember. Players are likely going to come up with an easier to remember/spell nickname like "Tina" which I'm sure the character personally would really dislike being called such.

I want to main Velvet, or Twi-er-Oleander.

But I'll end up maining the one who's look I like the least.

Well Tianhuo, looks like we'll get to spend some quality time together...

Arizona. Reminds me a lot of Filia from Skullgirls.

Possibly I'd might dabble with Tianhuo.

I want to main Pom, but I am too slow to think about something other than my own character, so most like will end up as the most loyal and dependable pony cow. There's something you don't like? Kick it in the face! Plain and simple strategy.

I'd love to main Paprika (so fluffy!), buuuut I'll probably start off getting to know Velvet and Oleander, judging by what I've seen of their playstyles so far ¬‿¬

Aggressive, footsie based rush down is my preferred style so Arizona all the way. Oleander and Tianhuo will be pockets.

I´d probably stick with Arizona since I loved the way AJ moved on FIM, but I also loved how Random and unpredicatable Paprika seemed so she may be someone I stick to depending on how she plays.

at the end of the day I´ll just try to practice and Master all of them, seems time consuming and probably even confusing since you can get some of the moves mixed up but that´s the experience I´m willing to go through.

When I had a hand in Fighting is Magic, Party Hoers and I sync so well that Paprika might be the first I'll play. A character I will desire to master is Tianhuo just for her backstory. I want to train to respectfully play her to her maximum potential and show the superiority of the Longma Race.

Looking at the gameplay for Velvet, I would love to be able to play well as her. And I think the ideas for Oleander sound pretty cool! But I've always been the kind of player to just rush in and beat down whatever is in front of me instead of worrying about zoning or magic, so I'll probably just end up practicing Arizona and/or Paprika. Maybe the goat, once we get more info.

I'd love to be good at Arizona, myself. Knowing me, though, I'll probably find myself maining Oleander.

Velvet for 100% glamourous zoneing! Prolly dabble in Pom a little because evil scummy set-up dogs okizime on knockdowns looks like it will be a thing with her. Oleander in consideration because IN THE END EVERY HEART RETURNS TO THE DARKNESS ONCE IT CAME DARKNESS CONQUERS ALL WORLDS KINGDOM HEARTS FILL ME WITH THE POWER OF DARKNESS!

Tianhuo and Tianhuo, no matter what it takes. Arizona will be my backup.

I'm hoping to get good with Paprika mainly because Party Hoers is my favorite character in FiM, when they showed how she works in their original game I wanted to play her. I like how they have adapted it to Paprika and the new game.

I'll probably go for Tianhuo, but Oleander is also a pretty cool ungulate.

Not that I'll be any good either way, but still.

My initial plan is to try Velvet, mostly for those Armstrong-style ice sculptures. No idea who I'll actually end up maining though.

I'm thinking maybe Paprika because she's not too complicated and seems very aggressive and powerful. :D

I think I will try playing Oleander. Not only is she my favorite, but playing Riptor in Killer Instinct made me realize I really like making someone's wake-up a night mare. Olly's traps do just that.

I want to main Tianhuo, mostly because I think her design is really cool. Probably end up playing Arizona from what I've seen though.

I really like how Velvet's looking, but my style of rushdown is better attributed to Arizona

I'm all about Tianhuo. Waiting to see how she plays, though. Otherwise Arizona is the kind of character I'd also play. I'm not much for zoning or charge characters (sorry Paca :( )

Rai-... I mean Tianhuo.:rolleyes:

I've pretty much learned every nook and cranny that RD was capable of on TE... And even if Tian would be entirely different I' d still main her.:)

As little as I may know about fighting games... I shall say this. Pom is who I'd like to main, her and Paprika. No idea if I'll be able to, of course, but I can try!

I don't do so hot with gimmicks. I prefer my characters straight-forward and decent all-around, something based on mastering fundamentals.
Maybe that's boring, but it's how I do.
So I guess that means Arizona will end up being who I pick up first and foremost, since she seems like the most straightforward of the lot so far. I'm really hoping Goat is another one of those straightforward types, because I'd love to play as a goat.
I also vaguely hope Goat is a male, since I don't have any knowledge of this yet. It's not a deal breaker, but it'd be nice.

Goat is female. About all the information about it is that, and that she'll walk up walls and ceilings apparently. Which doesn't SOUND straightforward, but maybe won't be too hard to use
