Has anyone mess around with the new OS. In theory that'll be huge for her. Since most string that you use with ther to hit confirm b23 f4d1 111 is unsafe or leave her close at high negative. But using the os with 11, b2 and f4 you get combo on hits and stagger/good spacing on block. Like she is one of the most benefited it seem

I’ve messed around with it. It really needs to get removed, they removed the one from MKX so I’m sure they will do the same. Not gonna practice it to much until I know it staying.

I know it will prob get removed but her game is pretty busted with it.

I found 2. 1 from B13 and the other from B243. I "think" I found one from F4, but I don't want to jump the gun yet. I honestly think this might get removed because it's potentially ground breaking. People are already complaining about it now. A lot of the stuff can be made safe.

This is apparently the load outs for the 3rd variation. Supposed to be retooled.

Cassie - Straight Shadow Kick, Drone Escape, Bouncing Green Bullet

I think the meta of that new variation will revolve around the drone escape, it is pretty much a free neutral reset move. On top of that, we'll finally get to see the nut busting KB in tourneys now :DOGE

It's the normal bullet bounce, not the green bullet. And apparently some new bullet moves??? I guess we'll see once the patch notes are out, which SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUT YESTERDAY.

Doesn't sound good based on how it's explained, but that's why we need patch notes. lol. I need answers.

Same. Chels did some labbing yesterday.

So doesn't seem too bad honestly, the drone move is kinda OD, but if it would combo it would be insane.

I did something like that yesterday. That's why I was telling you that she could potentially have mixups from it. I just want Cassie to be able to express herself in the way that the player wants. So having 3 good variations would do that for her. This is one of the things I hated about MKX. You only had like 1 maybe 2 variations that had use, but the others were hardly used at all (all across the board). It's a lot I didn't like about MKX but I won't talk much about it. We're here now.

That does look like some slick shit though. It's just what is she doing at mid range besides her buttons maybe?

The guns? They’re safe on block so why not?

Which guns though? You mean the BF1 versions? They'll always be there. I meant her other specials. Sorry I should've specified.
No I mean db1. The guns she gets in the new variation. They’re -8 on block and hit mid.

And they’re pretty fast

Ah ok!!!! Yeah I play Digital Solider as my go to (YQ too). That's actually music to my eyes then!
 
So, today I fondled a bit with the third variation, using the bouncing bullet instead of the ricochet bullets. Even at this state of frame data I managed to steal a few matches from a good Frost (it was an op custom variation with microexplosion dive bomb and something else) and a bad Liu.
It really forces you to fish for those krushing blows. When you are not chipping your opponent you better pile up those nut kicks! The fact that you can make 111 always safe with the flying kick is nothing to joke about. I wouldn't say it is a good variation for the moment, but with some minor tweaks here and there I can definitely see it as a valid tool. Also it is mad fun!

The biggest problem I noticed is that the variation is affected by a very bad bug that happens a lot during the matches. Basically if Cassie gets countered while trying to BLB air escape (whatever the name it is, the move that grabs the drone and flies around) the DRONE ends up in a stuck position and Cassie cannot use any move that requires it. She loses almost every move. The only way to restore the drone is either by performing a throw or a krushing blow. It happened first in a tower of time and then in the match against that Frost. The really need to FIX it.

I posted a video proof on reddit if anyone is interested. PS don't judge my gameplay, there was a modifier that prevented me from using special moves

Been messing around with the 3rd veriation and it seems like this version is all about safety. This is only after like 5 minutes. Not gonna do any huge damage, and probably gonna want to end combos in ex nut punch for the crushing blow. Or ex guns for a little extra damage. She can make any string pretty safe with the flying kick, a few characters might be able to punish it, need to test it out.

Bouncing bubble being +23 on block is nice and they have to have a forward advancing move to punish you, or they going to get hit. They can’t even grab you. Hoping to find some nice setups, and I’m sure some people might.
 
oh my fucking god they didn't change anything! All they did is now she has to spend a defensive bar to use the escape! And cannot use it to combo. She has literally nothing. I'm so fucking disappointed right now.
