The range on F4 is weird and almost inconsistent at times. F4,2 is absolute garbage. I honestly keep going back and forth about whether or not I actually like F4 haha
Like i want to use it when people walk backwards but the foward hitbox seems to literally be on the skin of his jeans or cargo pants/knee pads....meaning trash

I like f4 if you manage to remind them once that the 2 is mega plus it becomes a mix up. They can ND the 2 if they want to lol
 
Fatal Blow change is no big deal at all. It’s just not the panic button it used to be. If that’s the only change Jax recieves we’ll be blessed.
Definitely. I'm not gonna try to pretend that I haven't just thrown FB out there in desperation...but a lot of the times I hit it, it's because my opponent is trying to do something and not because it's a mid. As long as it remains the same speed, high or not it will still be a very strong reactionary FB.

It shouldn't remain the same speed though. 10 frames for such a move is way too fast.

So with ground pound pop up and you can control its range close normal and far ; along with lethal clap which is pretty good if your hands are heated you get a juggle if you input 1 after the move with arm heat. I think Jax might be safer in this variation especially because he still has stiffarm. You can cancel the new string after the first 22 or 11...[221122] during that and mix in ALL of his special moves or comit to the string which has almost as much advantage as his throws on hit. Might be playing the 3rd variation as well as GB.

Side note: If kano has snakebite ALONG with limbar check Kax will be my backup...
 
That mixup between overhead or being plus includes also cancelling into amp bf2. This variation will be busted and patched eventually I bet. Especially because we now have a 300 damage non breakable combo with his heat missiles. I’m not optimistic but that’s my boy and ima pretend they won’t fix it someday lmao

Third variation sounds pretty decent. Don't know if it'll be as good as the other two but itll be a fun change.
