Making f3 a mid wouldn’t change cages pressure from being gimmicky, giving him faster buttons would.i stopped using nutpunch because being only +5 with no good mid is not worth it. Same way all the +6 strings and ex fireballs arent frametraps at all. They are useless because there's no good mid to keep tjem in check. There's not a single reason for any opp not to block low/wait ducking vs johnny. in fact i think he loses a lot of matchups mostly because other characters have acceptable mids.
for christ sake just make f3 a mid please
I would much rather have a faster b3 than a mid f3.
