Strategy Now That's What I Call An Entrance -- Green Arrow General Discussion Thread

was it instant? the b13 has to cancel into it right away, you cant hit it, pause and then do it. I know that sometimes i have trouble getting this out because you literally have to make a read and hope they don't get hit by it so it's pretty much a mash situation. 111 on block still works against her but not ds or flash or hg. She also may be able to get out of 111 on block with her flying uppercut, i'll test it though.
That's probably my issue, It wasn't instant. I tried to confirm the super on block.

While your here, I have been meaning to ask you, do you have any tips on how to land j3/j2 bnb's consistently? After watching some of your recent tournament videos, It occurred to me that you've narrowed down these combos to a nigh immaculate level of execution. I can't land it for the life of me.

Do the J3 as low as possible in the kombo then J2 as early as you kan. If you want to land 223 after the J2, make sure you delay the J2 a lil bit..

General question: does Arrow have high execution requirements? Is there anything that would be really tricky on a 360 d-pad? Thank you!

Yes.. Dashing forward and moving in general is very hard to do on the 360 pad.

But if you're komfortable with the 360 pad then you kan probably do any of his stuff. Arrow is more of right hand timing than left hand for kombos. He has stuff like his meterless&traitless F2D13 BnB that kan be hard (F2D13, Dash, 223). If you kan do that then there really isn't much you kan't do.

Apologies for wrong thread before.

The Question remains:

Who does the Green Arrow community think is a worse character?

Nightwing or Green Arrow?

Staff footsies or d1 xx ice arrow?

Nightwing is mid tier

Green arrow is bottom tier, d1 ice arrow is useless against someone who knows the matchup

Nightwing is easier but Arrow might be a better character in the long run..

Arrow requires A LOT more match up knowledge than Nightwing does.

Nightwing also has more set ups to get people with which kan help him in tournaments since they are only 2 out of 3. Unfortunately for them, most Nightwing players only stick to a few set ups they like and then it becomes easier to adapt to it..
 
Is there anyone on PS3 that would like to get some games in sometime? I am on day two of learning Scorpion, I want to have some experience in this matchup.

I found a new (and practical) 50/50 launcher in the corner (no it's not f2d13/arrow) and I need someone to record it. Any takers?

Did you guys know that MB sky alert and airborne MB sky alert could be clashed??? I was playin online and someone clashed it on me

Don't be scared to throw out Up Haven Blast in certain match ups. If you make a good read it can lead to good damage in the corner. I've been using it a lot to keep people cornered.

That's one of the interesting things I noticed about the move. If only 1 arrow hits, it remains unclashable. But if two or more hit, they are able to klash it. So if you're trying to get unclashable damage after a B3 or something just time it so that only one of the arrows hit.

I use it a lot. It works pretty well midscreen too, the recovery is good and if they jump at the right time you get a B3 or dash in 111.

PS: I think they should buff the juggle effect of the move because at a lot of heights you kan't follow up with anything even though they jumped.

What the hell do we do vs a strictly zoning zod? I played m2dave today and couldn't stay on em. He kept me out and I was eating chip almost the entire fight while being 3/4 to full screen. When it did get in he'd air zod charge out of there and I'm stuck dealing with trait n zoning again.
