Lol Kano does not go even with Shang at all. Shang destroys Kano from everywhere on the screen up close or far away. That mu is 6-4 in shang's favor if anything.
Shang isnt that bad actually, although I would say 4-6 too.

I'd change that too. 7/3 maybe even 8/2. But then again, I'm free to shang. And dark in general.

How is Cage v Kano 5-5?
Knives all day, lbsh if you don't know how to escape cage pressure you're doing it wrong, 11 strings can be upball'd, b1 is an advancing poke with amazing recovery, and kano's rushdown is only slightly lesser than cages while also having a 50/50 (realistically 60/40 considering b2 is 8000 frames) but the fact of the matter is it still exists, slow or not. Also, a note to all kano players. You don't b11. Ever. You b1 hit confirm into 12, and that takes care of ex nut punch or any form of b11-interrupt.

I will downplay anything for 5 dollars
maybe not online, but offline he definitely does. I'd go as low as 6/4 b/c of knife damage being higher than shadows, but that still doesn't warrant a win in my book.

C'mon, don't downplay.

Yeah plus once you build enough meter any frametraps could turn into eating a 42% X-ray. I could see 5-5 at a high level.

I need to pickup Kano again lol

I'm pretty over hearing Kano gets destroyed by "insert character here".
Kano goes 5/5 with more than 75% of the cast. Kenshi is the only matchup where he gets 100% shut down. Kano is the worst character in the game solely because his winning matchups (6/4 or better) are few and far between. His losing matchups, most often, are no worse than 6/4 - 7/3 and if you consider that being "destroyed" then you probably shouldn't be playing mk. 7/3 is totally and completely winnable at any level.

kano sucks but is underrated based on what TYM regulars think of him. at a high level of play he can be a scary hairy aussie bitch

He is total shit against the chars who matter...thats why most of tym doesnt care about him. You will not be be winning against skilled kenshi, Kabal or Lao players. Really lets be honest....who cares if he goes 5-5 or 4-6 with some useless shit tier char like jade

I have indeed. But tbh online is more 6/4 jc's favor imo. Despite popular belief, online doesn't favor Kano, not my Kano, at least. Laggy Up ball/knives only get you so far against a good player.

Everybody else gets to! Lol.
I honestly believe its a terrible matchup for him. Then again the only noob i lose to religiously is Madzin. But we haven't played in forever because i always get salty over his epilag.

I personally think its terrible for Kano. Stryker can zone, Kano cannot. Roll goes under knives, gun beats hz ball& downball. Kano def has the upperhand once he's in. But getting in is a bitch. I say 6/4 more likely 7/3. That being said...... Other kano & stryker players disagree and say 5/5. I won't argue that and will just assume i lose due to lack of m/u knowledge.

The same reason most people don't give much of a fuck if they go 5-5 or 8-2 against Kano. When you get wrecked by Jade because you don't know the matchup, you'll reconsider that mentality.

Remember how players used to swear Sheeva wasn't the worst in the game because of all the tools they didn't know about? We all know what happens when someone actually knows the matchup.

Kano/Kabal isn't that difficult of a match. Anybody/Reo is 9/1.

Kano/Lao 100% 5/5. Hold dat.

Kano/kenshi is a joke. If someone counters you with kenshi you better have a pocket anybody else. Cause any character would be a better bet then Kano here.

Get out of here. Kano is probably the most lag friendly character in the game. Knives are annoyingly hard to react too and good luck punishing upball or even armoring through any of his strings in general
