Well I’ve finally played and holy shit am I horrible!
LOL. Tried a lot of the stones. Reality is easy spam but seems like you have to have “some” skill to make it effective.
Time was my best stone by far. Seems like a super legit easy mode stone. Just press surge to invincible through people… to easy. Then the storm is basically like easy mode confirms and combos. I think I’ll stick with it for now. Lowest entry barrier by far.
Yeah it’s funny that time stone is slept on at all. It really shouldn’t be. Even random scrubs online that just mash on port can be difficult to deal with since the port moves you far away from where a lot of your attacks could punish. If it’s 2 frame start up you can likely use it like Nash’s V Trigger to slip out of mistimed meaties or bad strings.
Ultimately the best solution and takes more skill then a button press lol, reason being reality stone is generally followed by a neutral switch in the most trolly offense flows.
Thing is depending on where the neutral switch happens that pushblock might be hell on earth to do.
Yeah that’s definitely one of my go to’s already if they have a character in recovery still (the neutral switch will beat your recovery.)
However, if they don’t have a character in recovery you’re just asking to be combo’d. Reality neutral switch is very, very hard to beat up close.
You literally have to stop them from using the the stone in the first place one character away.
Also another thing I’ve found out about reality surge is that grounded surge has less recovery than the air one. Which is basically the opposite of mind where the air one has less start up/recovery than grounded.
Soul will still be good for pixie characters who already had problems killing bigs. It just improves matchup. I doing anyone will use it unless it is matchup dependant to do what was in the video. Basically I don’t think it is game breaking or will invalidate bigs in any way.
