    After having the most amount of high level Skarlet players offline at one tournament, I was curious as to how people's views of the character have changed while facing high level competition. What should we as Skarlet players focus on more and any particular matchups that were overlooked?

    From what I gathered Kabal and Lao are areas ninj and fly want to focus on

    Rumor has it emp skar has the answers

    Also tough luck to our skarlet moderator, 2nd tourney gets kabal first round.
    And to be worst, i wasn't just kabal, but PL's constant crossups were annoying the fuck out of ninj, that even when he could block a ND he just got caught on it.

    Well to be fair I don't remember any Skarlet players saying Kabal was a bad matchup, in fact they said that it could even be even. While that match didn't determine any numbers it definitely showed Kabal can't be taken lightly and that you really have to know the matchup or else he can get away with a lot of shenanigans. Props to PL for taking advantage of that.

    Hi everyone!

    Glad we're back!

    It's obvious that while I have a passion for the game and this character, I'm not a good tournament player. The -only- way I have to play people and gain my experience is online. MU experience is how you win tournaments IMO.

    I wish I could have made a bigger splash but to be perfectly honest I had a blast and met a ton of chill people. As a testament to my non-tournament-playerness, I thought I was playing Big D in losers...was definitely winterwarz. One would think I would've studied the cyrax mu regardless, after EVO! Haha...oh well. Winterwarz played a great set, coming back to take it from me.

    I'm grateful to all the awesome players I got to get casuals in with, including but CERTAINLY not limited to PL, CDjr, ForeverKing, DetroitBallin, everyone who played me in our room, and that 15 year old chick who owned @xblmindgamez at the event while he tried to figure out how to play with my hitbox (butt wait!)

    If I can win the online tournament Pig Of The Hut is hosting then I may go to Dallas. Otherwise I'll likely retire to being the forum mod. I love the game but it's simply too much money and more importantly time to travel just so I can get mu experience.

    And Scar, I loved the text you sent Fly after my set with PL. I laughed so hard. I'd love to see how you handle kabal - I think I took one match off of Cat in casuals.

    Pig and Fly I hardly need to mention how chill it was to hang out. Fly thanks again for picking up me and King and dave at the airport.

    Don't be so down on yourself Ninj. You already proved you are a great Skarlet player through that one online tournament and when we played each other online. I'm sure if you had more experience like the other tournament players you could get top 8. I just wish I could go to tourneys like you guys. :p

    You're good Ninj, you just need to play these guys more often OFFLINE.

    I'm only being honest. Don't get me wrong - I'm capable in theory of being an excellent tournament player. I don't have the means to accomplish this. Part of it is choice for things I'd like to sink my free time into. Part of it is lack of offline competition available to me. If I had the competition, I'd probably sink more time into it.

    Please don't interpret my posts as being self depreciating.

    Ninj, I enjoyed seeing you play on stream. I understand money and time holding you back from going to more events, I'm in the same boat.

    To the rest of the Skarlet players, good show. I always root for you guys so hard.

    Do you know how to get the URL of it? It's only letting me get the embedded, it won't let me get the URL.

    You mean for the actual match video? I don't know if it will let you. At least it doesn't seem like it will.

    She is viable in every MU...

    Her only losing MU are kabal, and kenshi...and I'm still not sure about Lao. I realized how fucked up kabal really is. I also realized that the character design leaves almost ZERO room for error which sucks because envy thing she does is hard as shit.

    Her zoning is great, her footsies are among the best in the game, and with every tournament she will become more and more viable

    Supposedly...I still need to see match vids.

    PL's kabal was fucking MONEY. He played well the whole tourney. Ninj had the tougher kabal IMO. Kevo was smart but unfamiliar i thnk with the MU where PL looked very comfortable with it

    I also played PL in casuals for about an hour the day before.

    And to be completely forthcoming, I wasn't feeling nervous during my matches with PL on stream but I was unfamiliar with the matchup and come on - a little intimidated by the two time world champion. @PerfectLegend thanks for the casuals man - I'm grateful for the chance to have played you at all. Really cool experience for me. Managing to take ...I dunno, 6 sets total, off you in the hour of casuals was pretty cool too...though I suspect any tricks I had were being downloaded :)

    PS in no way am I implying that my casuals with PL had anything to do with the tournament matches - I'm fairly certain he would have 3-0'd me regardless ;) respect.

    what did you think about my skarlet? I feel you have an "unsung" skarlet that is really good and I'd like your feedback.
