So after playing his third variation a bit, man it is hard to open people up. Sometimes I counter with a snake bite instead of a poke just because people disrespect so much looking for grabs. Honestly I grab a lot with kano cause I have no mids. Eye laser is only good when you have the krushing blow, after you hit that it is trash. Best thing is back 2 into dmg with snakebite imo. The b2 really needs to be fixed on ducking hits they barely pop up. F1 into eye laser hits alot lol, I know its not great but its fun to do to people who know the kano matchup. Sometimes f1 into snake bite or throw is ok but these are not good options. D1 into snakebite gets poked out of on block. Without other changes this is bad! I didn't realize how bad eye laser was and was left wanting knife toss back.

B1 10f --- We have a safe, fast mid counterpoke now
F1 MID --- They didn't even touch the recovery frames! We have a 13f mid that is +1 on block.
F12 now HITS ON CROUCH BLOCK (Haven't tested all characters yet-- seems to still be whiffing on females). Spit lost scaling and does 20 damage now. This went from a complete dogshit string, to a solid stagger/hit confirm string. Hit confirm F12 into special and block confirm into F12B2 to be +2.

Beautiful day for Kano mains

Did they nerf his damage in the third variation? I was playing around with it yesterday and I seem to remember the same stuff I’m doing today after the patch doing a lot less.

Messing around in the lab and I don't see how the new variation is better than ripper. Ripper has two variation specific KBs to beef up his damage with F43 and lumbar check, where's the advantage to losing that dmg?

Your so right about this. Only question is if its over powered? This is why I'm saying dirtbag so good right now cause on this string if you get good at it f12 vege kano up ball amp on hit and plus 2 on block

I don't think f1 into 2 can jail on block. I mean it does right now and I think I is too strong. On a hit d1 it's free for punish or plus two then you can d1 again and start over again or d1 into acid or grab

Ey guys, I've opened a new thread to discuss the changes. I think they are huge enough to be discussed apart

this must be the best Day as a Kano Main to log in this forum, didn´t know that we get the patch so soon
 
Guys how do I get the classic Kano eye? Is that coming in a Krypt event or something? I'm missing it from my collection of gear. Thanks!
