    So I've decided to learn Supergirl. Ridiculously fun character. I've never played a jack-of-all trades character before, and honestly, I am having a blast. I've always tended to play more one-dimensional characters. It's very fun to be able to rushdown, zone, and/or bait on command. Also, her mobility is fucking delicious. Plus, her float combos, Super move, and win animation are all swag AF.

    A basic question for those initiated in the prowess of Kara Zor-El: Which characters can be reliably zoned out and which ones can not? While I am getting very comfortable with a lot of her tools and have had a lot of success implementing various play-styles, I am not always sure which characters she can successfully out zone on a consistent basis.

    This may sound weird. I don't think necessarily Supergirl can outzone everyone, but she can't be outzoned by ANYONE.

    By that I mean nobody can zone her to death, like for instance if you were Aquaman fighting Ivy. She has the tools/projectile/mobility to fight back/get in on everyone.

    ...but she can also successfully outzone like 2/3rds of the cast easily. Given her lasers and mobility.

    We won't see that many Supergirl players now, but I'm not mad at all tbh. lol. I expected them to change something like this. Actually content with the changes. She's still just fine.

    I'm only angry at the 9f d1 change. It looks disgustingly slow now. I would have been fine with the other changes. The walking laser was a pretty potato move so I agree it needed a nerf.

  6. 9f is not reactable regardless of how "disgustingly slow" it might look. You just can't spam it now. Use d2 if you want 6f.

    D2 is unsafe and has less horizontal range.

    I thought she was gonna get hit harder than that. She’s still very strong, I’m just curious what everyone is going to complain about now.

    IDK, given all of the incessant bitching about her, I thought she would get it worse. D1 change doesn't seem that bad.
    I actually think MB trait requiring meter hurts her the most, because now you can't get primo damage from her bnbs for only one bar.

    Lol. I'm just curious whether I can claim victimhood status if I lose a match now or SG is forever hated no matter what.

    Once we've played around with the changes more, I'll update the guide & repost it.

    I've said since the beginning of the game that MB trait should use a bar since ya know... METER burn button is being used. Really shocked it is just now being implemented. Better late than never I guess.

    Literally like the only, tiny differences to her play now are that d1 can't just be panic spammed as a get-out-of-jail-free card and resource management matters slightly more if you want to get the absolute highest damage....

    She can't just do MB4 out in neutral without thinking, either. Since it costs meter, it can be risky because it can cost you just like her mb teleport. Still good, though since it does good damage & good chip.

    Ok so what am I supposed to do after 112 now to frame trap? Does bf3 still work? I can't test it right now but imo it doesn't if 112 is really +2 only.
    Doing combo off of d2 for 274 damage and risking a full combo punish is too risky.
    D3?

    patch is up on xbox, it says its plus three regardless most pokes are 7frames and her down 1 is nine so you can still do it. It's also quicker recovery now, so you can play mind games between 112 breath and 112 poke and 112 grab, im not sure if you can also walk backwards and whiff punish after if they are mashing but you can do that if they are respectful. you can neutral jump as well or just block and counterpoke its still really good.

    I tested 112 d1 and Superman could poke out of it with his 6f d1 cleanly. Maybe I mistimed it who knows I will test it later again. Anyway thanks for the advice.
    God forbid you answer my actual question. No. Do the completely original thing and shit on Supergirl players.
