King of the Kiddie Pool
Aqua's neutral and keepaway game are great even without FTD. FTD should only be used on reaction to lobo's reload which I'm sure you wouldn't just throw out blindly. Your jump is hella floaty so a good aqua player will look for your other options to get in which aqua has answers to. Water shield honestly isn't a god send in the mu but it's an option. He can't wake up with anything if i'm in it or lobo will eat 40 plus. Idk man, after playing with digit a 100 plus games I'm not all that scared about grapplers with guaranteed cmd grabs. Just means that aqua has to play perfect and beat the opponent in neutral lol which is doable because aqua's normals are too goodThat's how I felt when I played against Insayne and Tom Brady at civil war, half the time I got a life lead from knocking them down and just sat away with my trait. But since then Tom has said that Water sheild helps out a lot in the MU so I gotta play it again.
