Sorry for the late reply. But yeah, I know what you mean about Reika. And Tiger’s hitbox is kind of funky on the way down too which doesn’t help. Few things that should help though… don’t forget about super jump as it makes you jump higher (in Tiger’s case anyway) and is pretty fast still. Also, try jumping the fireball late. Because of the way Tiger’s hitbox changes on the way down, it’ll make it a lot easier to get over them. Of course, this gives Reika extra time to get you, so be careful.
Also, if she’s trying to lock you down at a close range with them, you can go entirely through even the slow projectiles with his 214B+C shadow. Which should give you a free out of her dumb shit. Also don’t forget the MASSIVE vacuum on his 236236K super. If she tries to throw them at short range, you can beat her clean with it.
Another really important thing: 63214K->236C, once active, has upper body invincibility and thus can go cleanly through Reika’s projectiles. So what you can do is just wiff the 63214K at mid screen and do the followup. This is a really solid strategy with Tiger in general because at full distance, this move is totally unpunishable (it’s -5F and leaves you at a distance) and if it hits you get BIG damage.
And of course if she’s playing a real pure runaway game, take the time to Taunt to build up some meter, if you don’t have any.
But yeah, sometimes the best option is just to block and walk forward. Use the Tackle or 63214K to cover the last gap in distance.
Anyway, one more tiny patch: http://www.dragoninstall.com/junk/MartialMasters_Patch_vC_Final.rar
Some minor fixes for Lotus and Ghost Kick. Should help Ghost out a lot against Reika.
I also updated my Tier listing for the vanilla game a little bit after some recent discoveries:
S Reika, Snake, Monkey Boy, Huang, SaoJin
A+ Monk, Tiger
A Lotus, Scorpion
B Ghost Kick, Drunken
Monkey Boy steps it up after discovering how stupid good throw setups are off 214B+C. Good potential to move even higher still.
Tiger steps up thanks to 63214K->236P being sooo good among other things.
Lotus steps up thanks to massive frame advantage coupled with a lightning fast unblockable.
Ghost/Drunk drop down just to keep things organized.
