fear the moobs
remember how they nerfed erron's command grab because he had multiple enders but no one used them because the grab had everything. i think it's the same for flip kick.You would use the meterless flip since it was a 6 frame reversal to punish stuff on block. You'd use the metered flip to wakeup, make mixups safe, armour break safely off of situations in which her other armour breaking options would be too slow.
i completely agree with them taking away the armor property. she's still very good on wake up you just don't get everything out of one option. and there's no scenario where 50/50 into ex nutpunch won't break armor as far as i know. shit raw ex nutpunch might work too if timed right
