Who else is maining the Ice Alien?

I plan on maining Glacius whenever I get the console so I wanted for everyone that already has the game to discuss the character Glacius, how he plays, his strengths, his weaknesses, your gameplan with him and how complex he is compared to other characters.

From what I've seen he's got zoning capabilities (maybe the most), also really long range attacks, but seems he can be rushed down easily and has to wait for his opportunity to counter attack. He also is the only character with no dash (I heard pls confirm) so I've seen a lot of Glacius players jump away while attacking to build distance which is usually countered. His damage also seems to be on the lower end compared to others. From most of what I've seen online and streams usually players seem to lose when using this character compared to let's say sabrewulf, so this leads me to think he's either more of a complex character or maybe not that good, still too early to tell but let me know your thoughts of what you think of him so far.

He probably takes me Hit Confirming and setups.

If you watch FilthyRich he had what looked like unblockable setups with the projectile and pillars.
He'll def. be a first one to try for me. Dat puddle uppercut.

Tom warned me day 1 glacius will get BODIED by day 1 saberwolf

But things will change as GLACIUS takes a lot of time

This character is GDLKE..... unblockable setups cannot be beat. I am working on a nasty set-up, that hopefully can be made viable....

If I can set up people consistently NEC will be mine!!!!!!!!

I main Glacius and I could say that he will be a threat to many characters in the game. I hope people don't drop Glacius because he requires a hell lot of work put into him with his punishes, resets, spacing and air control with hail. I'm glad I picked up such a character!!

From watching it seems like Glacius has to beware of shadow moves/counters.. Whenever you get too comfortable throwing stuff out from range, somebody mashes a button and now Jago's in your face with a shadow flying kick combo starter for big damage. Seems like it keeps the game balanced and keeps you honest, although some of them seem almost too good.. But it's something to be aware of.

I've noticed that too. Whenever fighting a Jago or Sadira I tend to throw less Hails and even hold them while trying to bait a shadow move. Also, his wake up game is not the best. People are gonna have to play a perfect if not near perfect game just to stay alive against these characters.

Can't wait to play more Glacius when i get my X1 next week, interesting how he's the only character without a forward or backdash, but i'm sure there's good reason for that :p

Maybe your interest should lie in Sadira though Sabrewulf is a good too.

Flash, great rushdown, high low game, long range hitting normals and good damage. seems like orchid. Sabrewulf has shit range supposedly.

Sabrewulf would be more like Cage tho

guys, there is no unblockable setup with Glacius.
if you put up Hail after a knockdown (Hail is the projectile thingy), the followup unblockable while they are blocking the Hail gets BLOCKED as well ... so there is no setup there if anyone was having that kind of thoughts with Glacius.

been playing him for the last 3 days (since i got my xb1) - he controls alot of space on screen and his jumping kicks cover different angles to attack the opp depending on where they are on the screen (distance from glacius) and you can use these as openers. his f mp is a great tool on the ground, its not that safe though so might need to cancel on block to Hail or the unblockable shatter move, but the latter can be jumped out of...
his combos will seem easy to break in the beginning because autodoubles, depending on strength H/M/L, will determine if Glacius pulls them near, keeps them stationary, or pushes them away when his doing his ground stomps stuff in combos.
glacius players will have to rely on mindgames alot and the counter breaker system to bait and dish out heavy damage into Hail setups.

I am hoping these forums will catch some life and we can start sharing some tech, because TYM doesn't seem very lively on KI like other forums.

btw, my gamertag on xbl is Armoured83 do add me for some games when you get your xbox :)

cheers

Alot of lab time my friend, alot of lab time ...
Sabrewulf can be learned in under 1 hour, and is easy to pick up and wrack up wins with him. it reminds me of day 1 scorp in MK when everyone (online) was picking scorp :)

I think this is mainly because the Xbox One is a brand new system and only 3% of the people here have it yet. And also, people who have PS4 won't be able to get the game. So it's not a great comparison to say, the IGAU forum.
