    EntropicByDesign Confused and afraid.

    Unable to check at the moment, has a listing appeared for a fighter Pack 2 or anything like that? As of last night around 11:30 Eastern when I went to sleep there was only the ultimate pack and the fighter pack. I am going to be enormously upset if I have to buy a $40 pack just to get access to him early, when I have already bought the original fighter pack separately.

    His throw range is poooop

    He's gonna be so dependent on having that fuel guage. Can't be wasting it, that's for sure.

    Okay so rocket pressure on block is useless and so is any float pressure off of block strings like ermac.

    His strings while in float are all mid..

    His mb laser is easy to os to punish his regular one..

    Second hit of mb teleport is oh but whiffs on ducked opp and can easily be interrupted...

    Yes he has no overhead to speak of outside of f3. B12 catches people who hold down though.

    No true overhead. If we're counting overheads in strings he's got a few

    I mean its way too early to tell if hes good or not but all the theory pressure that people talked about with his rockets and trait is completely unviable..

    the f2 string seems very strong though

    Black Manta utilizing instant air Torpedo Cannons and why you should use them over the regular grounded ones when you're trying to control space or zone a bit for anyone interested:

    The chip on his Manta Rays is significant.

    Take$$$ gotta take it to make it

    So if you block all of trait, he builds like over a bar(around half or more in trait alone) and does something like 30% chip and gets another short usage of trait to do more chip and build more bar. So it's kinda like Tanya where you'll have to reversal/armor or else you'll fall too far behind, but with Manta you pretty much have to reversal during the first trait that constantly switches sides on you with no tell.

    Once I get it down I'll post it if my numbers end up checking out.
