        People don't want an even match

        I don't get it, I don't even get any satisfaction of winning with Raiden or D'Vorah, each victory just makes me think "how much of this was me outplaying my opponent, and how much of it was the fact that I've stacked the deck in my favor". I just want to play interesting and unique variations, that are rewarding for working a little bit harder.

        Only thing is is that apparently none of the hitbox issues have been fixed, I presume the patch notes is talking about Dualist orbs or something.

        It's just tricky to not go for the throws all the time. I think the threat of the throws make people stop blocking, then you can fuck them up. He's got good stagger strings as well to catch people with throws. I think I'm going to put some work into him.

        I'd like to put more work into him, I have a complete list of every string that's vulnerable to parries and there's some decent stuff. Any kind of stagger pressure agasint him will get blown up by parries.

        Cannon ball remains the dumbest move in fighting game history. So fuck Kano.

        Yes but in the heat of a match you only have a fraction of a second to recognize that it's an instant jump kick and react accordingly, as trip guarding has a relatively tight window.

        The noxious ticks are crap, and the damage you do in Nimble in combos equals more than Noxious can do either blocking or comboing. Deceptive doesn't work well enough, as he already has unseeable 50/50's and being invisible does nothing to change that and he can't zone any better because if he blocks he loses the invisibility which is silly.

        hese are not MU dependent because the core mechanics of his variations don't change anything about him apart from damage output really. If the other variations got the fixes that the Rep community has been asking for (and they are completely reasonable) then it would be good.

        I feel like Sonya is slightly overrated at the minute. Her overhead is punishable and the gaps between string-MS aren't being taken advantage of. She's obviously really good and a top character but worse than Erron IMO.

      Tempest might be better than Buzzsaw now.
      1. Undeadjim
        Undeadjim
        Could be, it is certainly better since the patch and his pressure is scary he can just stop at any time and grab/overhead. Thank god he has no low starter.
        May 29, 2015
      2. Phosferrax
        Phosferrax
        He would be fucking broken tier if he had a low starter lol. Thinking about it, the only thing it really changes is the f2 mixup. You still have to guess the end of strings if he's going to cancel into hat spin, except the hat spin is actually scary to get hit by. I don't really care about getting tagged by the low hat at the end of the string.

      3. Phosferrax

        I don't know what to do when he runs in with the hat spin active but trying to blow up the run most of the time results in me getting blown up.

        I think a universal buff is necessary to mitigate the bitching in the community. Plus, like Phos said, no one uses them for anything but stopping jump ins anyway. So fuck it. You shouldn't get to jump in for free. I read that shit all the time and still fail to win with a D2. It trades, or i lose way too often. I've started doing D4 so they whiff...fuck that.

        I feel like Deceptive is slightly less so, but still basically no point in picking it over Nimble. One day Deceptive will be good, but I think Noxious will always suck.

        My one grip with the game, if you jump in the neutral my D2 should beat everything regardless. You cracked in the neutral, I reacted. But because of how well they do against D2 taking the trouble to try and anti air to then eat 30% from Scorpion into a guess aint worth it lol
