I'm not going to update for a while just yet because I can see more big backflips coming soon after the backlash from this recent patch, maybe it will happen maybe it wont but it would suck to write this guide, just to have to rewrite it today just to have to rewrite it again in a week or two. That being said I guess its kinda self explanatory what doesn't apply from in here as it stands. Hopefully something does get changed because I can't justify picking this variation anymore, and aesthetically its just so awesome
That's understandable. In the meantime, this thread and the other Tarkatan guide by REO will be unstickied.
It's always the coolest-looking variations that have to be the worst. (See Dualist and pre-patch Gunslinger for example.)

Tarkatan is in no way bad, just a lot weaker. lol.


Rekka's are still amazing for whiff punishing and putting on pressure. If people could perfect OSing you were fucked from the beginning, it's not 100 percent guaranteed in the match. And it's still weird to punish blocked rekkas now.

I think you need to lab it better. Play against me and I'll punish your Rekka's every single time. The point is before, if they could OS the Rekkas you weren't at all fucked, because you were safe. Now you get armored. It's pretty big, the other variations are a lot better than this one now.
