@EMPR_MURK I have a question for you: how do you know/decide when to use MB ground spark in escrima? I pretty much never use the MB for that move, but you were using it quite effectively. What do you do if they are hit with it? What do you do if they block it?
Well against sinestro, doing a escrima ground spark allows NW to duck his fear blast. It also causes sinestro to jump considering that NW would win that trade 75% of the time unless sinestro has trait. Causing sinestro to will also allow me to bait him as he's coming down by slightly delaying the ground spark, and if I think he's gonna do a move, I do a stance cancel into staff ground spark.

Well now im in staff which is not good because sinestro can abuse his zoning options and I have to play the patient game which can allow sinestro to build his trait. Sometimes NW can squeeze in a lucky staff ground spark but as I said in a earlier post, I'll be taking a risk so usually I would just go back to escrima without canceling into a special.

Now what if I didn't go back into escrima and sinestro is keeping me staff??? Well what I do is just slowly walk forward and close distance in hopes of playing the infamous staff footsies while also keeping a eye on his trait, and luckily the mb fear blasts are poopy up close so sinestro would have to play my game. Either way staff is poopy against sinestro 80% of the time.

I hope that helped man. @AK L0rdoftheFLY could explain this way better thn I could. Im just the guy for the action.

NW does well against the top tier except ZOD

He had an answer where many have said he has none

@NightwingDayZero

NW is a great character who is probably top 10-15

What's his losing MUs?

4-6
Sinestro
ZOD
Superman
Batman
Cyborg


5-5
Aqua
MMH
Bane

Beats
Shazam
Lobo
Arrow
The shitters

A 4-6 doesn't mean unwinnable it just means you have to be a better player and play a little better than your opponent. Seems like many have up on NW way too early because he required more. NW is fine
Batman is 5-5. If it was in anyone's favour though it'd be Nightwing's. He does do well against the top tiers. He definitely loses to Lantern, Cyborg, Zod, Sinestro, Superman, and Hawkgirl, with others being debatable. In regards to his placing he's around 13-16

Batman is even and lobo could be even.

But aren't online matches irrelevant? I'm wondering why this is being taken seriously all of a sudden.

And Pig Nightwing potential top 10-15? Girl no

This was one of the best FT5s I've ever had the pleasure of watching.

Murk handled himself very well and some of the matches came down to the wire and were unbelievably hype.

That's what I thought, too.


Too many people are drinking the NW Kool-Aid.

His losing MUs are somethig like:

WoWo
Zod
Possibly KF
BA
Sinestro
HG
Superman
Zatanna
Raven?
GL
Cyborg
Possibly Batgirl

He 3-7s Scorpion, Shazam, and like GA

Possibly those are bad MU.

WoWo
BA
KF
Raven
and Batgirl are all debatable.
