Ok...so these sets are against Dan Cock and my friend Andrew (Akromaniac27). Keep in mind that I'm still adjusting to the controls of the game and still trying to feel comfortable with Selena. With that said, I'm finding myself losing patience against players who are constantly retreating/zoning. What are ways you guys use to get in? I'm still in the very beginning stages of my CatWoman...how would you guys have handled these matches?
 
Does anyone know how to do the low whip with catwoanm not on the move list.......... btw runaway mafia with catwoman agians the ever lasting zoners in this game yu have to be extrelmy patient. Try to close the distance with her specials too.
 
low whip? maybe her diagonal df+heavy? If not could you be more specific

edit: or her cat stance(dd3) then 2, only other *low* whip I can think of

You don't have to deal with Supermans zoning if you're Catwoman. You can use your evade special for all of his projectiles, and get a cat scratch every time you evade, and that itself is basically like a free combo when you finally get in.

I also have some techniques against Superman which might make it a bad match for him, but I'm still studying the match-up. Its definitely not a bad match for her.

I don't have the game because I'm broke, but add "EGP_Krayzie" or "EGPKrayzieReaper" on PSN if you want some training practice. If Red Reaper is over, I can probably play a bit.

[EDIT] Red made top 8 at WNF this week with Raven/Superman. Maybe I'll record some matches with Catwoman tomorrow or something.

I believe it's FD+3...yeah...Catwoman can't "zone" at all. I'm learning quickly that I'm going to have to calm my ass down and wait...

I love the character but this game is making it hard for me. Inputs are fucking up all over the place, driving me nuts.
I totally agree. Some of her strings are VERY unnatural for me (2D2, B12D3...it's the weird Down normals that I could care less for)...I also feel like this is a zoners paradise and Catwoman stands alone...her learning curve is high, IMO.

Movement is definitely difficult. I mostly struggle with specials, whip comes out as claws, claws comes out as whip etc.

Hopefully i can get used to it
 
Thanks for that low whip input guys really helped with midrange game

Yea movement is a issue with her. Dodge superman lasers oh yes.lol

Got 4th with the Cat at WNF. :p



Okay here are the uploads of some of the matches:

Krayzie has a very annoying good Catwoman! I assume you'll see more at WNF tonight!

Great. Thank you for these. Always nice to see how more experienced players approach a character. I would have thought Catwoman is all about safe 50/50 hardcore aggressive rushdown. However, you play her more like "float like a butterfly, sting like a garbage truck".

These videos make me want to play Catwoman.:)

And I already like you Krayzie, you often use her Arkham City skin, which is my favorite. <3

One question though. I see you seem to miss bf1 into b3 a lot as do I. Is there a better alternative to it or is it something Catwoman can just throw out and if it hits it's great if it doesn't that's ok as well because you get close again?

Don't look too much into it. All it means is the game is new, and practice makes perfect.

The hardest BNB for me so far is my favorite and courtesy of Chef. You end it with two F3's, ending it unclashable with a nasty set-up.

You get 37% if you start it with B+1, 2, D+3. And of course this is without the jump kick.

Yeah about that F3. I've read all the combo threats for almost every character but I can't recall any BNB where F3 was included. This seems strange given that every character has it. What the hell is this move used for? I've never used it or seen it used. I can imagine it might be something you do against downed opponents but it is just so unsafe.

Every character has a B3 and F3 charge move. B3 is a wall bounce, while F3 is an overhead pop up move.

Most of these are actually plus on block, but character dependent, and can be used and even meterburned in combos. Catwoman is actually negative unlike many characters, however only by -1 on her F3, and -3 on her B3 which makes it still good, and even better considering what the moves do to her hitbox.

I messed around a little bit in practice mode and this combo is pretty good. But it's hard to land for me so I tried something else.
Starting with B+1, 2, D+3 like you said and after the B+3 I did jump 2, 112, DD3, 3 for 36%.

Problem is just that it is clashable of course, but a lot easier to do for me. I feel like I couldn't do the combo you posted in an online match.
