    Oh man, it's so nice to have this back.

    EVO was amazing today, I had all 6 streams going as pop outs and placed them all across my desktop to fill up my monitor. (So I had 6 boxes that ttok up the whole screen) I watched EVO for 16 hours straight, stopping only to eat dinner and take out my dog. I can't wait to get started on it again tomorrow.

    Also, I made a Twitter! @Urichinan

    I just went 40-2 with a dude in player matches, it made me feel quite good about myself. But it was super late and he was mostly solo-Peacock, so my wins weren't earned.

    I've taken a huge liking to Filia as of late, but I hate her normals A LOT.

    Haha, that bolded made me chuckle. She really is by far the most limited solo character in the game and though I'll humor the majority of solo-peacock's I'll play by hitting up solo mirrors with them, the moment I stick an assist on the team the tides turn ridiculously quickly.

    Echoing the Filia love as well. I've been trying to pick her up for post-patch shenanigans and she's an absolute blast to play.

    So a friend sent me a picture of him stealth trolling a Poison cosplayer at EVO. The first thing I noticed wasn't him, nor Poison... but Petey Fuckin' Bartholow, in the wild.
    How sure are you that Peter being in that pic wasn't according to keikaku.

    Stop that. Your team is very anti-Peacock, so you probably have a bias, but don't go around thinking it's a free win.

    I've been trying to keep track of my sets, from the past few days, ignoring stuff under 5:
    21-1, 10-0, 5-0, 2-3, 12-0, 8-6, 25-0, 19-25.
    My solo Peacock seems to be doing alright.

    My solo Peacock seems to be doing alright.

    But... It practically is a free win... Egret Charge and Hornet Bomber H kill her. And Painwheel's mixup and resets destroy her up close. Add that Painwheel's flight gets her close to Peacock very quickly behind Hornet Bomber and the fact that all three characters do huge damage together and Peacock is dead.

    The only matches he won were when he used Hornet Bomber as an assist, and when I was playing Ms. Fortune/Filia/Cerebella. So yeah, that was free.

    I'd love to fight you though (So long as you're on PSN and we connect well) because I've only ever encountered one good Peacock, so I don't have any match-up experience against someone who is truly good with the character.

    Also, I'm not saying this guy was bad, I'm just saying Peacock isn't great alone.

    Playing Fillia is really a lot of fun but ....well I have to say I think the coming changes will help her a lot. But yeah bad ground normals definitely.

    This is generally true, with the exception of Egret Charge. Especially as an assist. That thing gets beat by a well-timed jab, among other things. Also Hornet Bomber can be dealt with, if you're prepared. That 19-25 set was with a SRKer who uses Painwheel/Double. He usually destroys me, but I was up 19-15, before he won a string of close matches(denied that 20th win...). This is a bit too on-topic, though. I just get a bit annoyed when folks go on about how "she's helpless by herself" or how "she does terrible damage", when I know it's not the case.

    I'm on PSN, on the East coast(TheIdiomatic). If it's more than a yellow 2-3, it's a no-go.

    That isn't a solution. If you are waiting until it crosses the whole screen and jabbing it you are letting them in entirely.

    "Among other things". I'm just illustrating how fragile it is. You can use other normals, or s.hp and late cancel into lp or mp gun, or toss a George and teleport, or fake teleport+item drop. How about hold an item, s.lp/s.mp/whatever, cancel into fake teleport+item drop release? Or maybe cancel into lp gun xx Argus, then release the drop to cover the gap, if they blocked.

    I shouldn't have to go through this much effort to defend my character, but the level of play I've seen most other Peacocks has been disappointing, so it's understandable. Even players with good strategies don't do optimal combos.

    Yeah, but most of those options still give up ground. Fake teleport+item drop is a good idea but is still going to let the opponent move in some. Real teleport is risky as heck but you could do it every once in a while I guess.Maybe use s.HP and cancel that into teleport/fake teleport?

    Depends on the player's proximity to the bike. Some people will move ahead of it, so you back teleport right into it. I was suggesting s.hp, for situations where the opponent is already in pseudo lockdown. Keep them in place and deal with the bike, rather than jump and let them in for free. I'm not terribly concerned with teleport, as long as I have a way to make them block or prevent them from getting a clean hit.

    I could write more about what she can do at closer ranges, but this should go in GD.

    Well, the stream stability leaves a little something to be desired. Here's to the replays!
    I noticed it saved the end of that Severin/Trace match (Also noted that Sev is using the Mitsuru Parasoul alt). Is this the patched game version? Or some sort of in-between.

    Hello everyone.

    I haven't been practicing this game at allll. I regret that now. I'll try and play it more if I can, though I remember that I kept getting pressured by Valentine players and never knowing what to do. I still play Filia.

    I had a good feeling he'd be finishing pretty high. I played against him for a few hours at UFGT8 and the kid really knows his characters. His Filia is top notch. Nothing wasted with her, and superb positioning and movement.

    Oh hey, a new kinda-sorta GD! Let's try to be relatively not stupid. I just saw this thread today, so here are some extremely late replies to a couple of posts I see:

    A lot of the ask blogs have slowed down. Mine (peacock) went on hiatus for a month, mostly because of IRL issues, but it's still alive. Think of it as being on a VG cats update schedule.

    And... I have a fairly reliable strategy for beating Marie on Ridiculous... with Peacock. It involves lots of cheesing it, and a lot of luck, because Peacock is good at cheesing it and Marie is a cheating bastard haha. It's a completely different approach than a normal fight...
    First form: jump, qcf.hp, jump, qcf.hp, lather rinse repeat. Hold back and pushblock as if your life depended on it. When you see those huge battering rams coming at you, stop what you're doing and jump over it, because that thing hurts. When you've got decent meter built up and the screen is relatively clear of skulls it's safe to hit her with an Argus Agony.

    When she goes into her second form, immediately Argus before she gets a chance to start attacking. Marie hates it when you switch sides on her, which plays perfectly into Peacock's teleport. It's best to time your teleport right after she attacks; put a George bomb on the screen, block, teleport and hope for the best. Marie has some ridiculous moves in her second form so you have to be careful... If you get lucky you can pull off an Argus but I don't count on it.

    3rd form is where all hell breaks loose. Marie throws everything but the kitchen sink at you relentlessly, and if you mess up you are SOL. I didn't realize this before, but... for some bizarre reason, you can pushblock Marie back even when she's got a tiny hitbox and is hovering 3 feet above your head. :U

    Ok. So I use that to my advantage. When she first starts going into 3rd form I start charging an item drop, sit back and pushblock her out of my face. If I get an opening, I charge another item drop. If I get lucky, the lv. 3 drop is a Tenrai-Ha, which does a shit ton of damage. That's where it's kind of a gamble. When she'[s at low health, I pushblock her to the other side of the screen, teleport behind her and attempt to shotgun her to death.

    It's kind of a noob strategy, but it does work for me.

    Now to the other characters... ;-;

    Also those EVO aftermath photos are great. The envelope art is pretty snazzy to boot. Annie related ones are my fav

    yeah that sucks so hard, i got my first te stolen at one of the first wednesday night fights at shgls house... i grabbed a stick i thought was mine, it ended up being ps3, i gave it back to the owner the next week... but my stick was nowhere to be seen... someone had to know that they had procured and extra stick or that hey had one after never having one. i learned my lesson, but yeah the fgc is unfortunately full of some grimy broke motherfuckers that will steal anything that isnt locked down, shit gets stolen from evo all the time... i personally support a LIFETIME ban on anyone who steals shit and gets caught, banned form this site from evo and all evo related events and of course be reported to the cops.

    never let any of your shit out of your sight and ALWAYS have it clearly marked with your name unless its custom.

    common sense, but it shouldnt be like that, it just is what it is.
