Good Game :)
Just wanted to stop by and say that this is going to be a very nice thing to do seeing as Hawkgirl doesn't get much attention and videos like these is what opens people's eyes to new characters, including me. I think I need to see what Hawkgirl is truly capable of before even touching her. The same happened to me with Joker, watching KH cat's guide really surprised me.
 
- Add the 3~WE/3~MC tech for oki
- Make sure you mention how she beats up Superman
- See if you can talk about some buffs for her (like have her able to block projectiles while in flight, or making B3 faster, and making MT and B2 true mids)

Shoot them. Shoot them all.
Espio Either tonight or tomorrow I will be releasing part 1 of my punishment guide. It contains all combos off of D1, F1, D2, 1, and 3, her most effective bounce cancel combos, B3 & F3 combos, as well as my favorite corner combos. Also, Zod will be the character featured for punishment.

If you are going to do a video guide/project, I would suggest doing an in-depth analysis of her MU's as well as her tech. ;) Or were you planning like a basic, all around guide for beginners? I remember your guides for Jade/Sheeva and they were great for people unfamiliar with said characters.

Yay I'm excited! I'm glad there are multiple people putting in work video wise and I cannot wait to see the finished project. My goal with the Hawkgirl video guide project is to start from the beginning and work my way up to more complex topics like oki-game, corner pressure with ambiguous set ups and more. I definitely want my guide to be a good starting point for beginners and thanks :).

I'm thinking of getting a new camera for filming too to improve quality.


If there's enough interest in the guide and I get some help data wise I wouldn't mind doing an in depth analysis of her match ups too, but it's contingent on those few things.

I'm well versed enough to do match breakdown for around roughly six or so characters, but not informed enough to do them for the whole roster. I was actually thinking of doing a segment where I included another character mainer in the conversation with me as we discuss the match up, thoughts? Although there might be a TYM community project that covers this to be streamed as well.

Okay so I finally got my new camera so I can start filming in more presentable quality haha, but I'm not sure if I should wait till after the big patch or not because from the sound of it a lot of things are going to change and I don't want things to be obsolete so what are everyone's thoughts on that?

Well i would suggest you to wait... That way we can check our character and watch if this guys don't steal anything else again

Well i'd say start with the basics and her gameplan, stuff that most likely wont change in the patch, then whatever changes in the patch would be adjusted i guess. Leave out combos as thats the most likely area that'll get some sort of change (damage rate, extra/less combobility).
 
Other than using it for combos, What does using 3 guarentee as a whole? Is it a tool to keep opponents out of your face or is it for spacing? As a growing Hawkgirl player, I'm starting to question certain tech for her.

armor breaker (2 hits)
32b1 string which is -2 on block or knocks them fullscreen on hit.
On the opponent's wakeup 3~WE blows up most character's wake up options and gives you a free combo.
A decent anti air but there's no point in using it over d2.
one of her further reaching normals alongside d1 and d3 so it can be used as a "wall" to keep the opponents from closing in or help you get in by cancelling it to WE/MC.

Its been a while, but since the patch is dropping this Tuesday I'm going to finally start work on this video guide sometime next weekend or the following week :).

This also gives us time to look over a lot of things to see if there are any changes to Hawkgirl that were not listed in the patch notes and allows me to make time to work on it in between school.

I'm gonna try to consult everyone at some point to get their thoughts and feedback on what they'd like to see included that I might be missing out on and I'll probably do a video giving my perspective/character analysis too, thanks in advance everyone!

Does it also guarantee mobility as well?

Hawkgirl is super interesting but definitely a lot different than the rest of the cast. Im really starting to get into her because shes a lot of fun, so this vid sounds great!

I was waiting on the patch to drop to see if she got any noteworthy changes. Now that it has passed I will start work on it when I have free time this weekend and next week.

is there a date for when this guide will come out? just recently decided to try her out.

I'm filming part 1 tonight and will try to have it uploaded by tomorrow afternoon(or Monday morning) and we'll go from there :).

Life has been more complicated lately for me and I also wanted to confer with the Hawkgirl community on some finer points to discuss and include.

Okay part 1 is up now that covers normals and strings:


I hate my voice and derped a little bit while making this cause it was late and got a tiny bit confused, but I think I generally covered everything I believe. Part 2 will be coming early in next week.
