Favorite Mirror Match


#1

I just watched a Tager v. Tager off the leaderboards and that was one of the most entertaining matches I’ve watched in a while.
Despite that, I’d have to vote Arakune as my favorite mirror match. It’s like a game of tag with the curses and then a little bit of HOLY CRAP BUUUUUUUGS! I’ve seen a couple of defensive Aras face off and they both basically put up a cloud, a bell-bug, and then stared at one another… Truly a test of will and endurance. :rofl:
Haven’t seen one but I’m guessing Nu v Nu would be pretty sparkly as well, full-screen shootout old-west style.

BEEEEEEEEES*

Also, Rachel vs. Rachel is dumb as hell if you’re both using costumes with projectiles of the same color :looney:


#3

Nu mirrors are pretty hilarious

COUNTERCOUNTERCOUNTERCOUNTER


#4

+1 for Rachel dittos.

Is that my pumpkin or your pumpkin?


#5

Rachel for sure. I’ve only played a few of them, but damn they were fun as hell.


#6

Haku-men/Haku-men

It’s always pretty tactical, with a lot of footsie’s.
Both people are trying to find an opening in each others defense, I love it.


#7

I’d love to see a Lichi Mirror with both somehow using the exact same colored stick.


#8

lol

I gotta say, I have a love/hate relationship with Tao mirror matches. Its fun if both people know (mostly) what they’re doing, as there’s a lot of really great combo action and defending/looking for an opening in large attack strings is fun. But at the same time, Tao doesn’t have a decent reversal, so its pretty easy to be relatively locked down by even a crappy player.

At least, for me.


#9

Nu mirrors are the most rofl. Counter spam :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Tager v Tager

Double magnetism is funny as hell.


#11

Tager vs Tager is pretty stupid lol.

I’ll go with Bang mirror, and if they both go Fu rin ka za, lmao.


#12

Jin vs. Jin is a pretty great mirror match, although I think people would be loathe to admit it…


#13

Tager vs Tager

Worse than Potemkin vs Potemkin and thats saying alot.


#14

I’ve actually never seen a Tager/Tager, but I can imagine it can get pretty dumb.
Jin/Jin is meh.
Too much Fubuki spamming, whenever I see someone with a Jin card I just pick Haku-men to punish those ice cars.


#15

And when ever I see someone pick Hakumen I just stand back and throw ice swords

BTW… as a Jin player I love the mirror (if they are good) turns into a great defensive match up where both players are waiting for an opening


#16

v-13 mirrors surprisingly get upclose and personal quick. the couple ive played it was more aggressive then defensive, very little sword spam

i like the carl mirrors


#17

And then I counter those too
:cool:


#18

Ara mirrors are too silly… Easily my least favorite matchup, and I main Arakune >.<


#19

I had a Arakune mirror match today that involved both off us jumping in the air and simultaneously pulling off 214214D Distortion drive. BUGS EVERYWHERE. Need to upload that video :smile:

tager vs tager. When tager is magnetized and back dashes, and the other tager does D attacks, the original tager will instead dash forward instead of back, leading to all sorts of shenanigans.
