    New challenge just up:

    Great Instincts - Instinct cancel twice in one match.

    Popped no problems after my first game. Really easy challenge, and should only take you a minute or so.

    Pick a character you like/comfortable with, and play a versus match on n00b difficulty versus Thunder. Use Thunder as he does more damage, hence filling your meter quicker.

    Let him beat you up until your instinct bar is full. Then just start a combo, for instance with Jago I'd use :

    Heavy Wind Kick,auto, Shadow Laser Sword, NOW HIT HP+HK

    That will cancel your combo by doing your instinct special, in Jagos case, the little pose then his yellow glow with health regen.

    You can continue your combo, or let it drop.

    Now just let Thunder beat up on you again, fill your instinct meter then repeat.

    The challenge pops after the match, as long as you successfully cancelled a combo twice by using your instinct.

    LavindatharUnlocked fine for me, are you sure you are doing it correctly.

    No need to vote neg though because of a glitch though, as the above solution is how you do it.

    TwistedsymphonyI was having a problem where my opponent would win the match before my 2nd instinct bar was filled.

    A good trick is to try to perform a combo breaker before they can do an ender... this will save you a lot of health while allowing you to accumulate just as much instinct meter.

    LavindatharThis is why I said Thunder. Thunder does enough damage to fill your instinct meter twice, and have room left to spare.

    Chemical BloodYes I'm sure. Fill up the instinct meter. Start a combo, use instinct mode. Repeat. I tried with different characters against bots and players. Doesn't unlock :/

    Sorry about the neg. vote btw

    Kyotic GBabyWorked like a charm but did it in player vs player and used shadow kick. But still great guide
