Also, the change to Raphael's SC 4BB and 4BBB on CH is really good, don't ukemi because his SC 1KB tech traps pretty hard.

Oh thank God! That stage was so cramped! The Ivy match up in that stage was a nightmare, you were literally ALWAYS in her range.
Yeah, the changes to the sand stage and CM are a nerf to Ivy and to X, it's a nerf to Ivy because you're not constantly in her range no matter where you are, and it's a nerf to X because she has to chase you around more, she can't just corner you easily. It was a pretty poorly designed stage.

So, since Amy drops, I would just like to relay the terrifying fact that according to the people who got to try her out, she's pretty much SC4 Amy with some buffs, I already have nightmares.

Goddamnit you stole my joke.



Some characters that are very safe can throw out GIs to immediately steal the opponent's turn, and mix that up by disrespecting their own frames. Scrubby as it might be, that's a legit strategy that only works because GIs are low risk / high reward.

They needed a nerf.



Guess I'm a scrub then. Still beat you though.
They did.
You did.
No news there, I'm free to literally every bullshit in that game.

I vaguely remember how she was in 4 since i was super casual to even care much. But from what im seeing, she has projectile attacks now ?Question mark?

It looks like she uses her rose in combo strings too. And the range of the throw is not even far.

Damn, the buffs to Tira's meter build are pretty nuts in jolly. since 44A+BAA combos off her 66A+B/66B LH she builds over half a bar from the combo.

Amy was absurd in 4, easily 2nd best in the game behind Hilde, her 50/50 was stupid, she was very safe, had great pressure, her 33B tracked well, the character was nuts. Apparently she has an i12 CE, I hope that's incorrect because I hate playing against X because of her i12 CE.

Apparently, I was watching Sandman's stream last night and man o man, Amy is looking good but kinda complicated. So she has a rose system that upgrades her moves in some way that gives her an install like Gloomy.

Her moveset throws out red roses and white roses. White roses are harder to throw out but it affects the way your CE comes out. From his testing, White Rose CE is i12 which is faster than her Red Rose CE. You have to connect 4 roses each color. Once you do that, then she goes into CRAZY AS FUCK mode where her Soul Charge is INSANE and her damage is one of the best in the game.

She can GI cancel her moves into MORE GI cancels. DAMN! She looks swaggy as fuck, and some of her lethal hits are more situational than most that can only hit once it seems. Amy looks very complex but very fun to play and I cant wait to try her out today :)

That'll be 6pm/9pm for me then, depending what US noon you mean. :p
12pm PST is probably the most accurate.

Has anybody tried out their characters in the new patch? I'm hearing Yoshi mains and Cervantes mains complaining about their characters getting the short end of the stick.

Amy feels like she has all the tools to be top tier, overall she’s a pretty safe character, she tech jumps all over the place and tech crouches, her parries are fast and she can switch between them super quickly. Once she gets red rose her damage becomes absurd off like everything, once she has both roses 214B 4BB is an i14 punish with the same damage as Gloomy Tira’s 3AA+B and like 3x the range.

Almost out of here to try her out :)

@Eldagrin Whats the purpose of her white roses? What affects do they give her?

Mr. Righteous
Her white roses give her a LH off each of her parries, she also gets 214B which is an i14 punish move with hella range.
I played with her in training mode yesterday then just her story. Her combo routes really rely on her roses but they're not hard to hit people with so thats good. Her parries are fucking amazing that can cancel into each other for some mixup shenanigans, and her LH requirements are the most unique out of all the cast. I think you can only perform them once and you cannot do that LH again in the set. At least...it looks that way.

I wish i had more time with her but today is MK11. :)

Amy is pretty fun I’m impressed they made her interesting and the Viola quotes are nice.

After playing with her some and against her more, Amy is very good, but she does take time to ramp up, once she gets red rose she's really powerful, but her damage is pretty weak without it. Gloomy Tira outdamages her pretty hard by comparison, especially since she's normally going for red roses on launch until she has it.
