and what reason is that?Lol meterless orbiting hat, like really? There is a reason it costs one of each bar right now.
For comparison's sake, I don't even have a special cancel that is safe with my character's current variation that will lead to a combo. Hell, most of the cast doesn't.and what reason is that?
special cancel a -13 string into -7 on block?
well shit, most of the characters either have safe mid strings or can special cancel unsafe mid strings into a safe special, without having to spend 2 bars of meter.
do a 5% better combo at the cost of losing a defensive meter and access to breakaway, which is super important versus a good player?
for an offensive move that's not even that great?
i am not talking about something that leads into a full combo, im talking about something that's mid and safe on block.For comparison's sake, I don't even have a special cancel that is safe with my character's current variation that will lead to a combo. Hell, most of the cast doesn't.
Why dont u give him a restand and some 10 frame overheads?1) make 21212 hit high only the first hit, rest make mids, keep it plus on block
2) lotus fist, make his orbiting hat meterless
bonus: make f21 and f214 safe, but that might make him a little too good

Seriously the complaints in this thread.
F1 useless cause u cant hitconfirm? Its good for stagger on itself and u can make it safe with knockdown. If they like to poke use f14 so u can hitconfirm, if they block cancel it into special and make it safer or complete it for more mindgames.
He has alot of good tools, u just cant brainlessly do 212121 or f21 to pressure and expect to win.
Don't you have...i am not talking about something that leads into a full combo, im talking about something that's mid and safe on block.
Because Lao's unsafe on like everything
that was my main point about the orbiting hat.resource-intensive
Depends on what you're doing. He has safe mids, regardless. The only mids he even needs to use orbit hat to make safe is f13 and f21...the former of which already has another branch that makes it safe, leaving just the latter normal as the main one even needing orbit hat for safety.that was my main point about the orbiting hat.
You might think it's not that bad, but for me personally it makes the whole lotus fist variation useless, cause i never have access to breakaway.
its taking a lot of resources to do something other characters can do without spending those resources.
Right now i just choose not to deal with the lack of meter and use hat trick instead, like most Lao mains.If you find yourself starved of meter from spending orbit hat so often, then avoid using it as often as you do.
and it has like an hour long gap before the last hit.f13 and f21...the former of which already has another branch that makes it safe
I agree that he doesn't necessarily need a 50/50 but it would be nice if he atleast had some sort of real offensive options besides fishing for punishes and grabs. I would atleast like to see his theoretically best pressure string not have 3 consecutive high hits thus making it almost useless against anyone who knows the match-up.The only thing he needs is 1 from 21 to connect on crouching opponents if they block 2.
Maybe, but really maybe, F21 to be like -6.
He doesn't need anything else.
No characters need 50/50 to open someone up, I wish people realized that they are not playing mkx anymore and stopped asking for 50/50s. Erron, Geras, Sonya, and Sub all have 50/50s and they are scrub friendly as fuck and can legit fraud out wins by making you guess between lows and overheads, I don't want this game to turn into flipcoin simulator.
