COMPASSION IS FOR FOOLS
In the corner you can do a combo into delayed drone drop, then do the low tail, let go of the drop, then do overhead flip. Super fast overhead low overhead. If they try to block that (they wont lol) replace overhead flip with the tail slam.

No Doubt , Alien praetorian is the Best One to make 100% true Victory , Acidic depends on Ticks , its an great variation , but Konjurer is the Big Deal Guys

if a facehugger was used in a combo it won’t let you summon another off a cancel (like b11-pod), which hurts his oki and momentum. I could have swore i did it earlier in the day though, must be tripping

You can summon a facehugger and then do a drone drop after and right before the opponent hits the ground, he gets stood back up by the facehugger. Facehugger will also restand during all knockdowns as long as they don't fully hit the ground beforehand. I did notice that if you hit the opponent at the same time as the facehugger hits, the hugger won't connect and the combo will stop.

The keep away on this variation is solid. Anyone have any ideas on the block adv of facehugger?
 
I am not so optimistic about this variation, he has to sacrifice damage (which is already pretty low) to summon an egg. Facehugger is a great conditioning tool but I find it hard to even place on the arena.

Ok so I think I discovered a glitch, I might make a vid later, but I wanted to ask and tell you guys first.
Ok so after a 112 egg summon, I generally like doing either b3 (low) into flip (OH) or f4(OH) into tail snatch (low) "they both bimbo into face hugger". Well I was testing these 50/50's against wake ups and trying to lab by only setting up the CPU to block either standing or crouching, etc... What I discovered is if the OH and the face hugger hit around the same time or even if the OH hits first then the opponent CAN BLOCK the face hugger. At first I thought this meant that you couldn't combo into face hugger but with other normals it combos and catches all the time. And on top of that it scales and hits like its Comboing but is interrupted by a blocking opponent. (I mean their lifebar even shows the scaling the "hit" damage)So then I thought maybe it's intended or something but with that said, I then tried reversals. If I do f34 or cancel anything with flip while the egg is out and the face hugger is blocked, I can't block the at all. Flip is -7 but if face hugger gets blocked I get punished by a reversal ex slide from SZ which is what 9f? Seeing as this seems to happen on top of the combo being magically blocked, I think this is a glitch. Anyone else care to test this as well or have an answer as to why it happens? This really kills his mixup potential if it's not intended.

Hey again guys, going back to the glitch I found. Apparently what's happening is its putting them into a "reset" state after they get hit by the OH bc it causes a knockdown. Since it's technically breaking the rules on hit, they are allowed to block the face hugger. This in turn causes flip to be more unsafe than it is. I'm guessing the game is confused so it treats the flip as if it's the mb version or something?!? Anyway, I'll try and upload a vid showing all this by tomorrow.

can we talk Triborg matchup for a minute? How do you stop his pressure? It feels like its never your turn. I played a Sektor who just ran the 5 or so plus block strings together and there was nothing I could do except armor into a measly 20%. even his d3 is -3 on block, half the time I block it my d3 wont come out before his.

I tested that as well and it is weird I wonder if we do a unsafe ended if it still works?
