I don't know about you guys but I am hyped for Ninjala coming the day after tomorrow at the time I post this. Haven't heard many youtubers cover the recent livestream the official channel posted and wondered if anybody else was interested in this game. Obviously this game was made for me given my in-game name and I will be playing this until Paper Mario releases.

I had planned on picking it up at launch.  Admittingly I haven't looked a ton into it, but it does look fun.

I’ve tried the game and I like it but the one frustrating thing is that one of the main game mechanics is based on a Rock Paper Scissors system.

It's true that if you face an opponent head on, it's a stroke of luck if you win the parry, but if you use a move to bind your opponent with gum, they can't parry. Also, try using the hammers with the shockwave ability. Your opponent will be stunned and unable to parry

Thanks for the tip. I tried this in a free for all and it really helped

@NinjaChillPill are you still playing this a lot?  I haven't played since launch day (not because I didn't like it -- just had a really hectic week).  Are you still as fond of it as you were last week?

Yup! Going through the ranks! 
The gameplay is fairly easy to learn, but unless you are the master of rock paper scissors, you have to learn certain strategies. One week later and people are starting to understand how to win a battle. The competition is fierce in ranked mode, and even I had trouble with a few opponents. Eventually, I learned a few new tricks that could help anybody who wants advice!
The developers didn't really mention it, but there are multiple ways to attack. When locked onto an opponent and press Zr, you do a basic 4-combo attack. However, if you hold the left stick to the left or right while attacking, you do a different attack. For the katana, it instant-transmissions you behind your opponent and then attacks. Dragon Ball Z anyone? If you pull the L stick back while attacking, you do a wide attack. 
Keep in mind the three different attacks can be used interchangeably in the four combo attack, like command inputs in Street Fighter. Mix and match to find a good offense. 
Another attack the developers didn't really talk about is the break attack. This is performed by pressing R. When an opponent has their gum out and you use this attack on them, they will be trapped in a gum-bind state. Defeat them in this state and it is an automatic ippon. You can also use break attacks when an opponent uses and S-Burst(Also known as Zl). A normal attack initiates the rps(rock paper scissors) battle, but a break attack not only binds the opponent, but breaks their weapon as well! 
Use this strategy to avoid an rps and get a free ippon! 
Some other tips: if you are low on health, use gum morphing to heal faster. The master of change Shinobi card helps with this.
Everyone has a different style of play, so learn how each weapon works! This way you can find strategies to counter-attack opponents who are using say a hammer or the yoyo. Honestly, I haven't played this good a battle royale type game before and would highly recommend it. At least check it out and see if it's your cup of tea. 😉
