This is Exactly my point. People think he's decent but don't realize just how punishable he is on a majority of the things he can do. The only way you can play safe is by ignoring 80% of his movelist in order to do good.Sorry to paraphrase, but agreed especially on these points. That SZ clearly did not know the MU.
Playing the whiff punish game only gets you so many games before to a good opponent adapts and realises SK is a skin deep character sitting at mid range. Once they realise this and you spam another high, you're getting blown up. Once they realise they can sting you with a d2 during up hammer, you're getting blown up. No more fake pressure for you. Then you're forced into the b2, f3, b4, hop 2, etc game and your list of options has shrunk, trying to squeeze a combo out of a miracle hit confirm /sigh
He's still fun, but yeah, agree with you.
If this Sub-Zero actually knew what he was doing against this Shao Kahn the chances of him winning are stupidly high.
And people are gonna try to act like a team spooky tournament is filled with some legit ass people when they are out here in grand finals doing suboptimal, random ass shit in order to get wins.
