    Geras is by far the most exciting character to watch

    String, launcher, string, special. That's about what you can expect anytime someone catches a hit in high level play. Sometimes they'll get fancy with a restand but other than that offense is incredibly dull to watch. Which is why it surprises me to see so much hate for Geras in Top 8. Out of a...

    What should I be looking for in neutral?

    Currently using f1 as a wiff punish, f212 as my go to hit confirm and pressure string, sand traps to make them scared and more rarely B22. There does seem to be a noticeable mid range that's hard for me to engage on. Is there anything I should be doing better?
