What's new

in depth Jax Breakdown all 3 variation, changes wish list

nerfs
Jax - Sleep, Bitch (Away + Front Kick, Back Punch, Front Punch + Front Kick) now does 90 damage (down from 100)
Jax - Quick Drill (Down, + Front Punch, Down + Back Punch) can now be both high and low parried
Jax - Briggs Barricade now has 19 active frames (down from 24) and 5 less recovery frames
The D1 "nerf" was universal...only the last hit in that combo was nerfed (by 10) while the 2nd was buffed by 20.

And I have no idea how shaving recovery frames off of Barricade is a nerf..it can actually be used in projectile fights now, you can literally Barricade->Heat Missile->and Block in time to launch another to take advantage because the opponent ate the first one.
 
alright here the good news guys.

from playing mainly fujin 3 variation those past days. it still early but i really feel like Jax shit on fujin.

Jax can bully the fuck out of him once in and bf4 is good to deal with his sky walk bullshit. also jax zoning gives him problems.
Fujin doesnt have real good staggers so he makes one mistakes and you do close to the same level of dmg. anyway thats my take.
 
So I picked up v1 jax and was a little upset that the cancel is super unsafe off duck and weave oh well doesnt cost a bar. As well as being able to be jab punished or poked every follow up. Wouldn't it be fair if he could get his mid be Gapless? It's not like he burns 2 meters midscreen for big damage and on top of that less crushing blows than hd and no armour breaker wtf is that lol.

Jax may need combos but he is shockingly effectively without having to do big damage. It's fucking weird. I miss his old FB though even if it is still good.


can anyone explain to me why jax jab is 8f ? im still asking myself that since release.
Because he is a oki grappler, not a speed demon.

Mk11 baby. Nrs is really good at giving characters a worse version of an stiers moves. Like why does jax have a pokeable giant gap in his launcher while sonya or Jacqui doesnt.
 
I think ringer could use some buffs it's fun to play ass but the ground pound should be juggle able from near mid screen if landed. Basically just faster recovery on hit
