Yeah dude. He's got a bunch of bad MUs. HQT Pred is possibly a 8-2 against Bart.
I believe i played against Pred AND an Erron Black with my DB Bo...

the #struggle is very strong with this character...no matter its been my way of life since injustice Joker...haha

I also noticed fart is a very good tool to kind of use when ppl are jumping or on the ground and not to close some times.

Fart is pretty gimmicky, you'll catch people with it once or twice but usually that's when they realize they can just back to back jump back the entire match and automatically win.

Ive noticed it sometimes catches ppl who like to press buttons every now and then though.
 
Yeah fart is good for people who are all about offense, but if it's a character like A-List cage, good luck getting fart out against him lmfao. He has so many tough matchups man

Fart isn't always a gimmick. Characters with weak or no projectiles have to respect it. If Bo has life lead it's he who can keep backing up with farts and/or sumo stomp.

If you play Bartitsu F212~fart is also a damn good combo ender. Armor break for days.

Yeah, I find killer Leatherface to be a matchup that actually isn't terrible. Bartitsu can actually take advantage of his range and establish a space control game.

I started to notice that most folks online will wait till you pick Bo then select a character that completely destroys his current variation options in their entirety...

I did in fact play a Johnny with Bo...indeed a meaty fart is quickly subdued by wake up shadow kick or whatever else the cage player feels like doing. Cage can pretty much play twister with his move set cause whatever it is itll most likely beat Bo out..it was not pretty at all..

I played a guy earlier today that started on mileena then went to smoke, and finally settled on kitana when I beat the first 2.

Kitana blows ass to fight too. She can get 3 breakers a round in some cases. I don't have the patience for her.

Im pretty hyped to be playing the character he is a ton of fun though!
He is so fun, don't know why but i can't get enough of him!

Hate when someone counter picks with a zoner. Like seriously where's the fun, get in have a decent match.

oh Snap what variation were you? was it DM or?
I only play Bart. She'll throw like 40 fans before you get to her and that's not an exaggeration. I've gone over the MU with a fine tooth comb and it's just sucks. It's probably only 6-4 in kitanas favor but that's only because her offense is pretty straight forward and lacks bullshit.

The chase wears you out though. Eventually you make mistakes or jump when you shouldn't. Doesn't help of she knows Bo's gaps which she can blow up for full combo and reset her fan game.

Might be 7-3 on second thought. Haha.

I actually didnt even think of playing against a kitana in that MU till now...the horror..

How did your mileena match using Bo go? I had trouble cause i dont want to do anything meaty cause im afraid of watch up roll/tele kick etc...so i just stand there haha

It definitely wasn't his main so it wasn't as bad. I beat him each match. In the neutral you can compete with her B1 with your F1 and that's her main tool. The zoning can be an issue though as she builds a lot of meter so breakers are an issue. Overall though I think it's possible the MU could end up being 5-5. I need to play better mileenas though.

In the corner you can end your combos with f212~fart and she absolutely can't wake up. I'm the corner she's yours.

Yeah Ahaha same here, but I play DM he has a little more tools to close the gap.
Playing DM would be the smart thing for me to do but i like to mess around and throw fire on the ground via DB.

You would be surprised how many ppl jump into it and proceed to continue their assault/combo string due to a late panic of finding out they ARE in fact taking (slow but minimal) damage from it lol

I cant remember who i played the other day but it was either her or triborg and yea they were building meter insanely fast and i was getting wake up/randomly X-rayed due to that fact...

Am i correct in that her roll can be blocked high and low?
