    Thank you worldgem. Its tough switching to this game from Street Fighter. Any recommendations for a team here? I was thinking Valentine on point with Cerebella in the back. I see a lot of Valentine/Parasoul but I really hate charge characters.

    Val/Bella(w/ cerecopter assist) sounds good

    It's nice to meet you, too.

    Being new to this game stinks. I'll change my buttons for one combo but change it again for a new one. I'm just gonna keep combos simple and learn the game first.

    Yeah I'm doing the same thing. I jumped in and immediately tried to start doing fancy airdash combos and what not, but the only fighting game that I've actually played seriously has been SSFIV so a lot of these things are completely foreign to me. Decided to just take it slow, get some simple stuff down, and maybe go online with it soon.

    If you're completely new to this type of game like me we should gets some games in one day. I'm so afraid to go online and just get wrecked. I figure anyone that's playing this game online must be a god. I'm on psn as well, same name as on here.

    This is probably very obvious but...
    Add Updo, Napalm Pillar to your team if your new. You will feel better. These assists have a lot of invincibility and will help to get you some elbow room between you and your opponent. Spam these.

    Hornet Bomber(light or medium only) or (light)Fiber Upper can be used as well
    It's nice to meet you, too.

    Really? I still find she does a LOT of damage, that her barrel loop still works to a degree, and that the swag wagon is REALLY nice now that it's a 50/50 guessing game.

    Only modding at tournaments now. I'm no longer taking mail order jobs. Please don't ask.

    Not even that much of a mixup, just block the side you are closest too first. What makes double a real pain is anchor double with tons of meter.

    Cerebella is a good Anti-Air if you know how to use her. I prefer her to be used as a launcher when leading up for an attack. I can't explain how to use her launcher but to lead it up with a low projectile.

    I mean that's cool I guess. I just must be out dated.

    I dunno shit has been biting me in the ass lately, I guess that prepatch mentaility has been holding me back. I mean the damage is okay, I don't mind It's the same amount I'd put out before. it's like every bad situation has been amplified since the world around me improved with the patch( Which i shouldn't hide behind as an excuse) but it's like certain situations I could hang and deal with solo that I just can no longer do. I mean I guess I shouldn't complain too much because I could have had a double that gained NO meter on cathead.

    Shes still good, just not "as" beaindead anymore.

    Personally the nerf that pisses me off the most is the hitstun nerf on j.hp... That really pisses me off.

    The nerf to her dash invincibility is also something that pisses me off, also i thought the 2 nerfs on her lvl 3 were unwarranted... It should have been 1 or the other not 2 separate nerfs.


    But the catheads meter nerf and the hk bomber nerf were definitely needed... Both seem to be perfect to me now as far as balance is concerned.

    But man, the j.hp and dash nerf were going way overboard imho... Especially when there are plenty of other characters with just as much hitstun or more on some jumpjng attacks...


    But i digress, shes still really good as an anchor or support, though i definitely think her ability to play solo got shafted.

    Dunno if it happened as much during the patch but now when I dash past someone I end up still taking the damage from full screen away? I remember being able to dash out of some trouble before that i just get borked with now (but again I may be trippin')

    the hit stun was a killer too.

    Now that I'm running Painwheel/Valentine/Double, I can make good use out of the Scalpel DHC Bionic Car crossup shenanigans, IIRC. You can't just block one and the other in that situation. Unsafe as all hell, but still pretty sweet.

    Are you guys sure about Bionic Car being a 50/50? I can't test it because I'm on Xbox, but I thought I heard someone say there is a "dust cloud" that tells you which way the car is coming from.

    You can definately block it on reaction by looking at the dust cloud during the super-freeze. You do have to be alert though.

    Dumb question: Are the magic combos relatively easy to do in the patched version? Would you describe it as MVC2 or MVC3 in terms of lenience?

    Eh, I'd say it's more like MvC2 in that there's no universal launcher. Each character's launcher is different. You don't just press S and launch. For some it's cr.HP, for some it's st.HK (and some are different from that). Same with chains.

    Harder than MvC3 (in the sense that child with safety-helmet level intellect can do a magic series combo in MvC3), but just a tad bit easier than MvC2 (which I personally don't find difficult).

    I know there's no universal launcher in place but I'm curious as to how easy the magic combos are done. Oldschool VS game magic combos are pretty difficult to do, even basic ones.

    the only hard part about magic series is that the air version has to be timed properly for all the attacks to hit. Because the magic series all chain into each other you can just mash it in order and the game combos it all for you.

    Okay good. I was looking at the patch notes and it looks like hitstun had been increased during Magic Combos. Not going to lie, but I'm ass at the old Marvel games.

    That shouldnt matter to much... You being "ass" i mean.

    This game has more streetfighter in it than marvel. Everything in marvel is of epic proportions... Stupid high super jumps/captain corridor/dante assist hitting top of screen...

    In skullgirls super jumps are nowhere near that and the captain corridor style move doesnt reach top of screen... Basically meaning that the game is a little slower than marvel games and there is a little less break neck differences in spacing going on. Positioning means more than just guessing your opponents pattern than it does in marvel.


    I like to think of akullgirls as that perfect game that sits right between marvel and streetfighter in terms of gameplay and craziness. Its got the marvel crazy, but its also got the streetfighter style spacing, albeit in a different way.

    Hey guys. I'm maining Cerebella and Peacock at the moment, and worldjem asked me about their matchup. The Cerebella Versus Peacock Matchup. This is all not taking into account any assists (until the last paragraph).

    The matchup is in Bella's favor, I think, but I've never been able to fight a Cerebella with Peacock or a Peacock with Cerebella that knew all this, so I'm not really sure anymore. I'll talk about it, and then you can decide.

    Peacock:
    Spoiler:

    Cerebella:
    Spoiler:

    The reason why Doublecock is so difficult for Solo Cerebella is you take all the advantages Peacock had, take away all of the safe approaches Cerebella has, take away her glide (because hb hits as high as Cerebella can glide), and every time she gets hit/blocks HB she gets taken back to the edge of the screen (especially if Peacock backdashes). Titan Knuckle is Cerebella's only real chance when fighting Doublecock (if she wants to win more of the matches than she loses), because hitting Double with it puts HB out of commission for enough time for you to push Peacock back a few steps (this is something I still need to test out). You need to be willing to take risks in this specific matchup, and you need to know that as long as she can't get behind you (assuming you keep pushing forward), Peacock will never win the fight (also assuming both players are equally skilled).

    I believe so.

    And of the characters we dont know by name yet, I'm interested in:
    Format- Row, then character
    3,2- I love bards
    3,4- kinda looks like an armored knight
    4,2- looks like a reaper of some sort. The scyth-trident hybrid looks sexy
    4,5- I'd love to smack a $#%^@ with a steel chair
    5,1- is that a boom box? (Big Bands kid/relative?)
    5,5-  I'm pretty sure we've seen pics of that character somewhere
    6,2- I know I've seen that silhouette somewhere before
    6,3- Looks like one of the triplets
