Noob Saibot General Discussion Thread

Does noob seriously onlyhave 3 brutals in his tourny variants? The universal uppercut, back throw where you need to win with over 50% hp and front throw that requires mercy?

It's actually just kill with ex tele now smh
Im not sure. I know the killing one can be the 3rd tele. And I hope to hell you manage to land 2 more prior to that.
However I dont remember exact number but if amp tele does 150 damage, then it wont brutal if they had 140. If has to kill before the last 1 or 2 hits if I recall.
 
Y'all will probably think im dumb or something but the hardest thing to execute as Noob for me is the Spirit Ball after B1,1+3. I dont know what's wrong with me but it never works properly.
Doing neutral it works 100 out of 100 times but in a combo to go for the restand it simply wont come out even though the command list looks perfect..

I decided to play some Noob today and while he is fun it seems like you gotta work pretty hard to open people up since he has like one OH that is easy to see coming.

I think ill keep playing him a bit since I have always liked him, he just wasn't at the top of my list to play in this game with the Kahns, Shang and Baraka also in it lol

Try adjusting your input window timing.

The overhead argument is stupid. I mainly open up people with 212 and f22
 
Why does that work vs better opponents?
It doesn't, not realistically. To answer the other guys question. After playing the entire first season as Noob my opinion on the character is that he doesn't kill his opponents, they kill themselves, he just deals the killing blow. Meaning that the one true way to open people up is by forcing their mistake, making them push buttons and punishing with B1,1+3 and by the good ol' whiff punishing in general.
Granted, people online usually don't study the game as if they were paid to play it so B11+3 really shines in online ranked but when it doesn't you better be on point with your whiff punishing and to poke the opponent to death.

Can confirm on the B1 1+3 online. It does wonders against poke poke poke smashers.

You've several more options to open up people. Enemies have to respect every single option you have.

Grab a lot noob has 2 krushing blows

Some hop attacks let the enemy respect that they can not safely block low.

Mixing your options is the key to victory.

Sure you have to be patient, good anti airs and excellent punishing to win with noob.
 
Anyone wanna run some Noob mirrors sometime? I feel like I'm lacking a lot with this character but I have a lot of fun with him. PSN: Plays2
Yeah. I can when I get home in about an hour if you want? I need some experience fighting Noob. I rarely do and using Noob is different than fighting him. PSN: ImmaDoMahThing.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, we must acknowledge Toxin and the fact that he placed 13th at EVO this year using only Noob as far as I know.
Haven't seen his matches in YT. But it would be awesome to see how were his matches against good players at Evo.
