Mikey's Vortex

BLAK FELOW
The character is fine. Literally every option is unsafe. The punishes have to be quick though and people aren’t used to it yet.. even the good players like semij aren’t consistently punishing shell mill or shell drop.. the trait cancels have holes and 21u3 has a huge hole..

Let's not act like those holes are going to be blown up every time, he has ways to make you scared of trying to blow up the holes.

lol of course but my point is people aren’t even punishing correctly yet. You definitely need to understand the character to defend adequately against him. For example, the skateboard mid is only plus 1 but because of its quick recovery, everyone’s getting away with doing b2 after it on block.

Yea idk if you'll ever not get away with gettig a B2 aftet that unless they'e expecting it due to its nonexistent recovery.
 
I mean so is Firestorm's vortex, what's your point?
My point is that something so simple will destroy Casual players. Firestorm is not easy to use and his vortex and conversations are way harder than simple b2 string. Same way deadshot wrist cannon was so easy.

Wtf do I have to explain this to you. Maybe that’s why you are not very good?

First off, ouch, that really hurt my feelings, I might go cry later. Second, Firestorm's vortex isnt hard but I can concede that USING him isnt easy. However, in typical P2W fashion, youre looking at this in a vacuum. I have to win neutral to get you here, Mikey's neutral is so so. Not only that but off B2, you CAN fuzzy it (5 frame fuzzy isn't the easiest but it's doable) not gonna say the other mix is cuz it's not. Firestorm's conversions are not "way harder" than Mikey's conversions. To keep them standing? Sure ya, I guess a string into special is easier than a full combo. Like I get youre angry about Deadshot but this song and dance is starting to get real old. Im irrelevant, youre irrelevant, so how about we stop acting like that matters. You did shit in Injustice 1, I can't argue that but you have done basically jack shit in this game. So maybe we're both, not that good, mkay?

imagine having to resort to name calling because "Boohoo my pew pews" youre a child. If you want to have an actual intellegent conversation then cool but my desire to discuss something with someone goes down when their first response is "you're an idiot" real solid argument ya got there buddy. Catch you on the flip side.

So true, also, just adding that he's wrong.

Deadshot wrist cannon destroyed casuals in casual vs casual sets, because it's just spamming a button.

This vortex is quite more in depth than that lol. Anyone locking someone down with it isn't really a casual anymore lol

Deadshot wrist cannon also destroyed at tournaments of the highest level, and this character hasn't even hit tourney yet.




Also why was p2w unbanned? Isn't this sort of constant bs from him exactly what Shaka and similar guys were removed for? lol

I just had to deal with three Mikeys in Ranked who were all about this and holy hell is it a pain in the ass.

It's Bo Rai Cho if he had the midscreen capability to back up his lunacy.

Oh yea it's a lot to deal with. May I suggest pushblocking and learning how to fuzzy the B2 mix. Those two will help you greatly in fighting this guy.

Counterpoke with armoured DB2 at all times.
Seems pretty fair to me based on the damage it does and how unsafe it is. I'd rather deal with this than Flash 50/50's into 50%+.

And like @dribirut said, gaps. Yeah they can be baited and whatnot but at least the option is there.
