That was very entertaining Beezy, nice comeback against that Ivy player. They were trying so hard to read your 1B with Ivy’s jump B lmao.
THE WHOLE FUCKING SET! I mean, it did worked most of the time so i get why he kept doing it, but i adapt babY! This is why I LOOOOVE this game! Everybody is viable and still so much to learn. Thank ya kindly for checking it out. OOOOO and i probably will stream this tomorrow :)

"GOT'EM! ... No I don't... YES I DO!!! WOOOOH!" XD
Loved it.

Also, your Skarlet CaS is on point!
Thank ya kindly! Since the new pieces came out, i changes Skarlet's headgear to look more MK11 AND if you noticed, the other person's CaS was named Skarlett too! I was like, I HAVE to record this haha.

Yeah a bad MU in SC is a lot different than a bad MU in an NRS game. In SC it doesn’t mean they completely shut down some of your tools, it usually means they make doing a move more risky or they make you change your offensive flow. Playing clean soul calibur alone makes match ups easier, knowing when to side step and when to jump/duck things is so key. So is knowing GI gaps.

This is the damn truth. Maybe thats why I like this game so much because at the end of the day being a great player ultimately wins you the game instead of relying on your character cuz everybody in this game has cheap shit. Wish NRS went this direction.

This is really the first SC game where everyone is broken and has a ton of cheap shit, usually some characters have all the cheap dirt and nobody else did. I am glad that this is how they’ve balanced it, it makes everyone feel powerful.

Everyone feels power. Everyone feels viable, And everyone feels FUN TO PLAY! The most important part of a fighting game and this game still captures that aspect for me.

But i am happy to say that Uncle JBeezY did it. FINALLY FUCKING DID IT! I just reached C ranks! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSS!!

@SaSSolino I just played a long set against a decent Mitsu as Raphael, and I need Azwel's step kills. I ended up winning matches mostly through damage on 3A, 4K, 1K, and 2A/2K because this guy stepped nearly everytime I tried to 66B+K/3B/6B or basically any decent prep transition.

I love this game so much, I think I've been playing it more than MK11 even with Shang being out and a fun character. It's just so satisfying to play, even with some of the random ass hitbox problems it still has. Although MK11 has a similar problem.

Edit: One thing I don't miss since I went back and watched the matches, I won 1 RE out of 17 clashes, that mechanic is not my friend which is unfortunate because Raphael and Tira have great REs.

Yeah, SC6 is fun. I still play myself, even though less so since Shang dropped.

Anyway I didn't get what you asked me about, you need Azwel tips or something?

No, I haven’t played an Azwel in forever, he’s pretty rare online PS4 honestly. I was just joking about how I wish I had Azwel’s step kills because my opponent I played a long set with was constantly stepping and pretty much died from Raphael’s mediocre horizontals and pokes more than anything else.

Apparently theres been a lot of Azwel hate lately. I mean, i get he doesn't play Calibur like everybody else but did he get buffed in the last patch that made him stupid good or something?

He's pretty rare on PC too actually. And actually Azwel's sidestep is pretty bad, unlike his backstep. He does have some mean buttons from sidestep though, hard to argue that.

I meant like his buttons that hit people trying to step, his “step killers” or his horizontals basically. I agree that Azwel’s sidestep is kind of ass, it’s about as bad as Gloomy Tira’s, I think Raphael’s SS buttons are about as good as Azwel’s just because his SS is fast and 88K is such a strong CH button.

Azwel is just a good character. I think he is less stupid than Ivy and Siegfried are. He’s probably on par with Raphael/Amy/Mi-Na/Yoshi. He’s a bit unorthodox to fight which frustrates people. He’s got some fake shit too and people say that he’s easy to pick up yet they cba to learn the MU. If anything I just hate how they made disco kicks basically safe and muscle buster’s animation takes FOREVER.

We’ll have to play some, I can give you some Raph and Tira MU experience for EVO. I’ve got a headset so i can point out frames on moves if you want.

It’s a shame that Sas is on PC because he would probably be able to help you prepare to fight Azwel, who is becoming a pretty common tourney character again from what I hear on the Raph and Zasalamel discords.

I am! But i haven't really been playing this game in 2 weeks. Ill start practicing either this weekend or next week for sure. Having too much fun with SamSho :)
Oh, I'll be cheering you on if you get streamed in pools+ then. Interested in playing sometime when you're taking a break from SamSho?

Apparently pool seedings are available to view! The only person in my pool i know of is Pyro. @Eldagrin any names I should know ?Question mark?

I think Ridz name seems familiar, I may have seen him on discord somewhere. Everyone else is a nobody except for Pyro who is a fucking beast. I’ve played his Sieg before, he’s very good.

Edit: I would recommend looking up some of Pyro’s matches on Luxium Channel so you can get a feel of what you’re going up against beforehand. That could be advantageous since it seems you may run up against him.

Yeah. I know hes pretty good. Just found out this is a rough draft of the brackets though which means it might change coming Monday. I kinda wanna keep it as it since i do have a buy ;) We shall see how this turns out.

That is a pretty good bracket to be in. There are no Raphael or Tira players that I recognize in there, but if you get a new bracket in there I’ll tell you what I know if I recognize any of them.
