What's new

General/Other - Kitana New Age Kitana (10/04 Changes)

Rozalin1780

Good? Bad? I'm the one with the fans
Only spent about an hour in the lab before heading to work but if I'm not mistaken, Kitana in any variation now has a legit 50/50 from a jip. (jip xx Float xx jip or jip, b3) The second jip after float must be delayed a few frames (like 2-3 max) or else it hits mid.

Good stuff. :)

I'll mash out of +30 I know no fear
Update

F112 DP float j1 jails
It only jails if the opponent is stand blocking. Delaying the jip to make it overhead blows up crouch blocking though.

Also, on predator it never jails. Maybe there are more characters like this?

EDIT: You can NJK to jail on crouching opponnents and mess with OS armor
It never jails on jason, too.

Made it easier to read. Translated to TYM speak.
And added Color to make balance changes pop out that need to stand out. Easier on my eyes and hope everyone else's.

I support Kitanya.
All three of mine are now solid. Really happy for these kitana changes.
Well. She was always a side interest of mine and this is what I ended up choosing. Just hope Assassin is good. I've never used her yet so this'll be a fresh start.

You're my fan if you can't stop shitposting me.

Don't give up on Tanya yet though. Pyro is very good now.

Can i get a guaranteed u2 after a mb throw? If so, use a bar, get a most of it back in guaranteed chip ^_^

This is starting to feel right now.

I think I'm going to jump on the bandwagon. My Hitbox is just itching to abuse those IA fans and my inner scrub is itching to abuse that corner chip...
 
I love the buffs, but I think she's still going to suffer by opponents crouch blocking. I don't care if she's not top tier anyhow but still think the game is gonna be ran by charters who still have 50/50 starters.
