Geras General Discussion

I think the Gauntlet of Ages should be in the same variation with the Titan tackle CG, the damage buff on the fist increases the damage on the CG when you hit it into the wall, the mix becomes super dangerous. Probably a nice idea to keep in mind if kustom variations ever become a tournament thing.
 
Just started messing around with the cg variant and am having a blast. I love command grabs and geras has the best one imo with tons of easy tick setups, strong corner carry and no annoying dbf input.

so, im trying to understand, what is the point of f221+3, i know what it does but i mean, how do you catch people with it, theres no reason not to block low here right?

The Second hit is pretty slow so many time ur opponent thinks ur gonna stagger and get hit by it. But its mainly a punish string coz of the great KB

F22 is actually a pretty nice conditioning tool both in neutral and up close. A lot of people don’t see the second hit coming while in neutral and get hit by the low, and then once you have them trying to jump/block it, you can just start whiffing f2 and build mindgames from there. Up close it’s kind of similar but more gimmicky, if they have good reactions they should be able to punish you pretty much every time for trying f22 or f2 slow fist for plus frames, but there is a lot for the opponent to worry about every time geras presses f2 so you might as well sprinkle them in to keep them on their toes. Command grab adds another layer of dirt.

Also wanted to ask you guys who you think geras’ bad matchups are. Jacqui and Johnny 6-4 for sure. Who else, and which variation might have a slight edge vs some of these?

i have a hard time with jade. the constant jumping makes sand trap impossible and her long hitting attacks make it hard to get in. jacqui i dont mind so much i just mash d1 and refuse to play the cancel game. im sure it will cost me some matches eventually but for now im getting away with it. as stupid as it sounds i seem to have a hard time with raiden and kotal but i think that could just be lack of matchup experience.

Jade is a hard mu for Geras imo. If you show no fear and rush down like a maniac you can beat a lot of the low level Jade players.

I don't have any real answers for Jacqui yet.

Call me crazy but with his tools I think Raiden and Geras is an even mu. Geras has an easier time getting higher damage though.

Kotal will wiff punish you to death. Rush him down, watch out for jump in attacks and use roll on wake up .
