Thanks for the tip!Seeing some comments about jailing- d1 and d3 on hit definitely jail into b12.
If d1 connects and you immediately b12 it'll beat out an opponent's d1. I know it's a mid, but you have options vs d1 mashers.
If yall are looking for some dirt- d1 also makes d4 uninterruptible. If you cancel d4 into bf3 (projectile special) it jails, as long as it isn't at max range. It's not a true combo (nothing from anyone's d4 is) but if the opponent does anything except block after eating the d4, you get some juicy dmg for free.
Don’t get me wrong, if you’re enjoying her- MORE POWER TO YOU. I’m happy that you’re having fun playing her, I hope that never stops, I want everyone to enjoy the game their own way.I wouldn't call her boring personally, maybe she's just not your playstyle? I played some sets yesterday and i love how she plays, b2 is your best tool to approach neutral, sure, f2 is complementary if they want to intercept you at certain ranges, but besides that you also have great anti-airs if they are sick with dealing with you in neutral and want to avoid b2 pressure with jumps, d4 into bf4ex and oops now oppo in the corner with you doing random bullshit to crack his defense up or doing throws for 300 (with probably the coolest KB animation of hers).
She's such an annoyance really and that's what's cool about her imo.
As for the strings i think 43 is supposed to be her antiair and high crush, 344 is her best damage punish string and ground damage string (when you want to avoid breakout/fallout whatever it's called), b12 mid check string after the poke and a mindgame between this string and throw upclose, a lot of her tools have nice design to them and it really feels like all of her strings are useful in some situations just from what they do really, like even 22 being +5 on block but doing less damage than 13 tells you to use it in pressure instead of combo enders
Don't attack him from a distance because he will just teleport and punish you. Keep him close and finish your combos with oki/bomb setups. DF2 will catch Scorpion teleporting behind you.What do you guys think about the Scorpion MU? I think this might be one of her MUs that I’ve played at least. He seems to be able to invalidate so many of her tools.
What's a reliable punish for the teleport? Her 1 or 3 have the speed to punish but not the range so they are weird. I try S4 but its hit or missI played 15 matches or so against a pretty solid Baraka player last night. I got a ton of use out of Cryogenic Crown, but in the entire set I think I freezed him less then 2 times. But it was extremely valuable in forcing him to avoid or respect the bomb and allowed the zoning game to function even though his blade spark was an adequate counter to Frost's normal projectile.
Also, when you do her amplified projectile from full screen, she's +11 or so on block. In a lot of matchups that will mean you can throw out a safe bomb.

Yea but you only did it from the side that S1 works. I was looking for something that would punish on both sides
I have encountered it and this video just came in to confirm the issues I was having a while back. Specifically, that her S1 range is inconsistent when it comes to punishing scorpions teleport.Huh that’s weird I’ve never encountered this?
I don't know if i would say she is the worst in the game but low tier most definitely mainly because of issues that were clearly not intended to be in the game (like the aforementioned scorpion teleport issue). Giving her a 13f B1 and fixing the range of her S1 and S3 can easily being her a few tier levels up and I'd be very happy with thatShe's actually the worst character in the game. to punish with jab you have to dash cancel into jab. so block an unsafe move input dash first then jab. or just d2 and get 14% or test your luck punishing with her 16 frame mid (b1). why is she the only character wit this problem? and the only one besides geras who doesnt have a low d3 -____- sorry if i sound salty i just really want this character to be fixed lol
Your best option is B1. It's 16f so you can get poked if someone has a 6 frame poke (like Geras) and it's a very time window for people with 7-8f pokes. Considering its online though, dont expect it to be consistent. Expect to be angry and poked to deathSo whats her optimal combo after D1? Seems like all combos too late for 10 frames afte d1
Lol if only she had a main punish tool!What is the main punish tool? I’ve been whiffing s1 all day
