    doesn't Sektor's BS hitbox negate more than half Skarlet's shit anyway?

    I've just been bought in the online mercenary tournament for CEO - I'm guessing that will be streamed. It's next wednesday.

    anyway, i was watching Mosp play Red reaper and alot of EX daggers and parts of block strings where going straight over Sektor's head. You should look into it

    for the record, when the sonya bandwagon begins, i was first (one of) to say she is one of the best (top 3)

    "i played them before there was a bandwagon" "i've used them since the launch of the game/release of the character"

    Pig Of The Hut is on to something; The past week I've been playing against Skarlet's quite frequently.

    Haven't really notice much but I did recently start using her a couple months ago. Maybe ivve been riding on the wagon without knowing lol.

    Low hit box characters make her life hard. F212 strings don't work with dc. You are stuck with b11f4 rd slide or bait them blocking and do 114 while standing. Then f212 will hit.

    She is a force. She is harder to use than Kabal but I think the reward is higher. Kabal is good without dash cancels. Skarlet has to have high execution to be viable at all.

    Sorry it wasn't directed at you but like half of the MK community underrates her while the other half overrates her but only a few know how to fight/fight against Skarlet. We'll never know her true potential until EVO I guess.

    Been saying for the longest time that Skarlet is severely underated, as is Rain.

    Difference between a Cage and Skarlet bandwagon, any moron can pick up Cage easy enough. Skarlet, not so easy.

    Yeah she's hard to use and hard to win with if you're still learning, however if you're a player that likes to play the game on the fly, she really comes into her own.

    Her normals are ridiculous and she has several ways to just about punish anything in this game.

    I think she is too difficult to play for people to start playing her en masse. I do consider her a decent character with a lot of potential. She has some problems, though. Still, I plan to do it up with her this year. Going to hit the lab hard again.

    I'm really interested to see this Skarlet player you're referring to, Pig. I have a guess or two as to who it might be.
    I think that's actually very accurate! Except for...Shang Tsung? When did that happen?

    Didn't Kung Lao, Kabal, and Raiden all have bandwagons too?

    Skarlet can zone? LOL. What is wrong with you fools? Daggers do chip damage on hit. Cage can outzone this character with his awful projectiles.

    Also, Freddy will never be a bandwagon character because he has a few difficult match ups. Once people realize they cannot sit back and throw projectiles vs. the likes of Kung Lao and Smoke, time to go back to f+3 and d+4 xx MS f+1 as IKizzle says. LOL. Besides, you have to block a lot with Freddy because he has no armor moves, and scrubs do not like blocking.

    Df4 isn't armored ? :p

    Freddy has one of the best starters in the game with his b2 and d3. His zoning is also quite good.

    If you spam properly at the right distance, normally cage can't do shit. Her projectiles are kind of distance pokes.

    Yeah, they forgot him however I'm not agreed with Rain. Except you in 1 or 2 tournaments, no one played him in high level.. -.-
    I'm still hoping you'll play him one day, at least against weaker player than you.

    Rain is midtier no matter what.

    well im on it already on it for bout a month and a half now and love her. execution with her is hard but once muscle memory kicks in she does wonders. I got to find a way to stop people from poking my ex dagger cancels now. I have an idea just have to test it first.

    I'm planning on using only her in a tournament in May, gonna fuck some shit up with her :D.
    People won't know what hit them, she is as an awesome character and people will start using her and bitch about her pretty soon.

    Think I'm gonna main her instead of Liu Kang, she has much moor tools than her.
    And people bitch about Liu Kang being too easy to play with...

    Wait, I'm confused. I thought we were riding the Sektor bandwagon... Cage's stop was like 2 weeks ago.
