she don’t call me daddy she call me Grandmaster
Shows how little you know about either variation. You don't get a corner vortex, you aren't near plus enough to 50/50. You can't just brush something like safety under the rug. Fact- Acidic Alien can't do a combo without spending a bar and being minus a trillion. Fact- Tarkatan Alien can hit confirm his 50/50 be pseudo safe in a lot of situations, and not spend meter unless he gets the hit. Your opponent if they have no meter has to make a read to punish a 50/50 they already guessed right on. That is more fucked up than anything Acidic does. Zoning isnt a big deal in MKXL because over half the cast has ways to fuck you up for even trying.And there is many more reasons to choose Acidic over Tarkatan Zoning being one of them, Space control being the second and U+3 being a huge one. just the fact that you have U+3 in your toolset allows for so much control its sick. Exo sting is a conditioner that should not be downplayed, and the fact it stacks is not to be taken lightly. yes Tarkatan is safer whoopty do. ill take coverage/Zoning/Space control/corner vortex/ and Restand over Pseudo Safe. Anyday. but how about that Konjurer everyone is sleeping on. its a turn changer and a half IE constant pressure when used right.
Now watch me get branded an Acidic downplayer even though I said nothing but facts, and also saying I think Acidic is top 5, just not better than Tarkatan.
