I play Cassie and I can agree with you.You guys seem to have a lot of fun.
I am glad for you.
As for me, literally 95% of my matches are Cassie Cage.
I don't know if it's just the area i'm in or they just constantly counter pick, but literally I've fought countless Cassie Cages until I really gave up as I can't take it any more.
Every single one of them just walkback guns and then bury me with f4 staggers into b2 staggers (9 frame mid 11 frame mid). I can't use more than half my tools as literally everything whiffs, so I just do the 2 strings that actually work and lose because they're not fast enough to counter her mids (especially her 11 frame b2 that literally stuffs every single button including b3 and f4)..
Even if I win, the taste it leaves in my mouth is so nasty I just screw it altogether and play Kabal.
Cassie looks so much better than Johnny Cage (on any area) and with similar skills Cassie should easily win.
Up hill battle for sure.
I did not lab low shot punish - can Johnny punish it effectively (not from full screen but from fairly far away)? If yes it might be a weapon. Need to lab the proper distance where it is possible.
I would not play that match up (w. JC) especially not for fun.
Kabal on the other hand manages CC pretty well so you can have good fun if you like Kabal.
