If you think Mileena is boring, wait until you play a true 50/50 town character aka Erron BlackThis is my preferred variation. I never see it online but tend to get a lot of wins by doing fade gimmicks.
Understanding when to hold the fade, wait for them to whiff a move...appear and punish.
On topic, B12-Fade was my original gimmick but after some time in training, I realized it could easily be by many specials.
2,3-Fade is where the money is at! Mixing it up with F1-fade really messes with the opponents not sure what's going on.
Anyhow, Mileena(all variations) is boring to play and I'm really close to dropping her for the dark side....Erron Black.
What are you finding wrong with Ravenous?If you think Mileena is boring, wait until you play a true 50/50 town character aka Erron Black
Honestly, I think Mileena's variations need help. Hey are to outclassed by piercing at the moment.
After exploring Ravenous for a little bit, I still think Ethereal has more potential than it. Ravenous is a mess at the moment.
Inconsistencies with the tools. B12 1+2 is not easily comboable, Hard to get people to respect Mileena up close due to her slower normals, and just a harder time getting rhythm. I just started really practicing with it, but I find it's definitely missing something.What are you finding wrong with Ravenous?
This was the main reason I just couldn't hang with that vari I like the grabs and the low punce likely adds some mix up ideas when you don't have meter, but I just can't truly give up her range and low sai just for those two attacksInconsistencies with the tools.

Those are just some ideas of what they could possibly implement. What do you guys think?
- Make it so you can't be thrown during fade
- Fade hides you faster
- MB Fade keeps you hidden longer
- MB Fade hides you instantly
- Fade could also work like Scorpion's low minion if the sai lands on the opponent's foot
- Normal sai on hit could teleport you right in front of the opponent with like +2 or +3
That's true, I didn't even think of an air version. It seems like Tanya took all of Ethereal's possible swag1. Yes
No need for longer fade delay, 3 seconds is long enough outlast every string in the game. If she can't be thrown on top of this, that'd be a cheap timer scam, lol. Also, not a fan of Fade being an attack. It'd be impossible to hit unless you use Fade Towards. And even that is near impossible to aim right.
Someone suggested an air version in the other Ethereal thread. I dunno if it's needed or practical, but it would be nice. Especially when compared to Tanya.
It would definitely help. I think with MB Fade it should have a hit of armour on wakeup like Scorpion and Ermac, not sure if Takeda gets armour on wakeup teleport.That's true, I didn't even think of an air version. It seems like Tanya took all of Ethereal's possible swag
So an amazing patch for Ethereal would be can't be thrown in fade, normal fade hides you faster, air fade, and MB fade hides you instantly. Would these changes solve all of Ethereal's issues and make it tournament viable? Also, would it be helpful to have 2 versions of the air fade, one where she reappears on the ground where she threw it, and one where she appears at the same height in the air but moved to the sai's location?
I'm assuming it won't be anytime before Evo but there hasn't been any indication of when one is due so who knows.Really hoping they fix Ethereal, after seeing Tanya's Tele Shenans I neeeed this in my life.
Anybody know when the next major balance patch will drop? If it's gonna be fixed I assume it will be with that
huh, interesting. I would like to go back to this variation soon as been playing Piercing a lot. I know nothing good awaits me in Ethereal right now but I just have an affinity to itfrom the hotfix ex fade is now listed as 12 frame start up rather than 22, still no armor/wake up armor though
cant say 100%, either way move still has no armor/wakeup armor/projectile immunity and can still be thrown so its still bootyDoes it seem faster to you? Or do you think that's just a correction on the actual frame data numbers?
ye i feel ya, personally i dont think ravenous is very good for how i like to play so i was putting time into ethereal but at the min the trade off for what you lose is 110% not worth what u get in that variationhuh, interesting.
