DS Shazam is a 6 4 in DS favor. i know the MU well. but i know it vs only one person so i got used to his habits. He actually uses all of DS tools like J3 at me, his lows, over heads, guns etc. i dont know how to deal with a DS who pretty has his gameplay as only jump back 3 and guns. the reason why i walked a lot was so i didnt get hit with quickfire. Basically i know the MU well but was used to playing a different DS. I know this isnt the best excuse but also the marvel being loud for no reason distracted the shit out of me.
yeap, the ":mad:" was my reaction to shazamVSds in general. jonitti played it right, even though its a 6-4 MU. the effort you have to put in is 7 against 3, maybe even 8.

It seems you need help translating what you want to say into English. I understood you though. Show us how you do your 50/50.
I will work my English better, I'm starting my English.
see the video my 50/50 are after AC u can give HM inescapable
or take a Wake Up, the character can not give backdash, jump, stay low he is forced to take the HM.

test this put the character crouched, from a D3 try a HM the exact moment he get up. this is my tech. catch when standing.
sorry again for having expressed myself bad

I have never played against BA before at all or Rico so this isnt my best gameplay.

How do you run over their copse. I never learned how to do that. :(
You mean where I do MB torpedo and dash over them?
It's simply that move followed by two immediate dashes, I love it for mixing things up, but sometimes like against KF players they could just wakeup slide and catch me off XD

(Doesn't work on any big body characters)

Anyone watch NEC champ Pimpinjim play Shazam last night?

0:52:07 vs Nightwing

1:16:00 vs catwoman

I was pretty curious to see how PPJ played lil' billy, and was surprised to note that he did little to no advanced combos, and despite this had some pretty decent success. I think the two times he played with Shazam are pretty good examples of strong fundamental Shazam play. Much of his game benefitted from good reads and a strong understanding of the other characters.

Additionally he was all over the screen, not letting his opponent catch their breath, and generally being unpredictable. I liked how whenever he'd backdash to avoid he'd send a thunderbolt, which seemed to counter nightwing's zoning somewhat, or at least interrupt the EX staff.

The blocked d1 into st 22 - given that the d1 is +1 on block the standing 2 becomes an 8 frame startup bit of pressure into grab. I like.

Wakeup advancing teleport into HM grab. Seems obvious to me now but I haven't been doing this at all.

Things he did poorly:
Didn't capitalize as much as he could have when he opened his opponent up. I'm looking to seeing more Shazam out of him!

feel free to agree/refute/whatever

It works on big bodies sometimes.

Not sure if the timing is tighter or it's stance specific or what though...
Oh right, from others testing it they said it couldn't be done and every time i've tried it (Mainly against grundy or bane) I get blown up lol.

yeah I try and get blown up for it a lot (like in that set I just posted) but I know it CAN work

Btw does anyone use f12 as a footsie tool vs forward dashes? Even tho it's a high the range is better than 22 and it's faster , it's also +3 on block wich can make his d2 a frametrap , if it his then it's an easy hit confirm into MB HM.

I've also dabbled with j3 on block into Hermes Might and seems that it's unescapable when blocked low enough but the timing is very iffy , i'll experiment more with it.

Blocked low enough means suicide. I never do this, even with Joker.

Qwark28 yeah i wouldn't use it in the neutral game anyways , more of a setup thing but even then the timing is too strict to actually be viable , but i've just found a new interesting mixup with Shazam post knockdown that is pretty good considering what shazam already does on wakeups , i'll be sharing it soon.
