Sudden realization: whatever happened to CDJR saying "yay"? Apr 19, 2014 at 6:01 PM

      Hmm, MK9 is officially 3 years old today. God damn.

      Cyrax vs Kratos is either 4-6 in Kratos' advantage, or 5-5.
      In the zoning game, Kratos has all the tools he needs to defend himself against Cyrax's barrage of nets and bombs. The slow startup of the arrows is not a problem for trading with the slow travel speed of the net, and the recovery is often fast enough to allow a parry against the net. (12% for both arrows)

        While Cyrax may have a bit of a disadvantage here, I cannot deny that he is very scary because of his bullshit resets. Kratos can even himself out (or more) with the fact he can also easily convert punishes and parries into high-damage combos (56% highest meterless punish).

        Also: Sorry for the alerts. :P

        Lol no worries. Good assessment. It does seem like there's a lot of "what if"s though so I don't think 5-5 would be unreasonable. Granted, I don't play either character.

        Would human Cyrax's differences make the matchup easier or tougher for Kratos in your opinion?

        Thanks.
        Mm-hmm.

        I think Human Cyrax would be a little tougher for Kratos, since each of his bombs have a different, less predictable roll, in my opinion. His teleport is safer to use as well, which should help out in some situations.

      Smh, that semi final was like watching Zod get out zoned by Cyborg. Looks like Wigan got done in by their penalty wraiths though. #Kappa

        Oh, derp. I thought the pushback on KL's spin was just meant to be an aesthetic thing, not to make it safer. Perhaps I'm a tad biased since I player Sektor.. *whistles obnoxiously*

      All the MK9 debates as of late has got me experimenting again. Does anyone have a pictorial chart for the active frames on Lao's EX Spin?

        I discovered that a few moves are able to punish Kabal's hookswords on block. With a special it's relatively easy since you can buffer the input during blockstun, but for Lao I'm not sure if I'm screwing up the input or if the 9th frame just doesn't reach.

        9 frames is the startup frames, if there is enough pushback he might not get the punish. sektors ex tele is punishable on paper, it was -8 iirc but it is safe against lao's 6f spin. Using ex spin to punish the saw is like using spin to punish d1's, full combo punish if you mess up. its better to use 21 to punish buzzsaw. iirc the jab does the job if youre on point.

        Yeah it was just out of curiousity. By the way, I meant the command overhead Kabal has which is -9. (I already knew the ground saw is punishable) Obviously a kara'd dash into 21/24 is still good since you can make him fear meter drain if he tried to EX Dash afterwards.

        That situation was even more facepalm worthy. "I blocked his teleport low? My bad, I'm too busy muttering about his whack damage and the fact that he's always needed at least 3 bars before he's realistically expected to go for a fully punishable vortex to notice"

      So it's the end of an era for the Nintendo DS. Such a great handheld. Too bad their home console division is still a joke though.

        I love my Wii U, just wish it had a few more games, unfortunately companies can't afford to take chances making new IPs or new types of games because apparently people only buy COD now adays, New Donkey Kong and 3D Mario are amazing though.

        Their first party games are still great for sure, it's just that they keep making bad hardware decisions with their home consoles and it drives the 3rd parties away (sticking with cartridges on the N64, no online on the Gamecube etc). If they made a true successor to the Super NES by now, who knows, I may never have bothered with a PS/Xbox lol.

        I like the optimism. But I think at best we might get Khameleon as a Wii-U exclusive, and even that would probably be as compensation for the thing not being able to run MK10 worth a damn.
