Officially, you’re my hero.


#3

GO SA1!!!
Although it is stronger than 3 and I do use it more, SA3 is a good SA and also HELLA range. SA1 has to be point blank and will get punished if blocked.

Short SA bar kinda evens out the field. But still…good ol SA1.


#4

SA1 does more damage but has less range than SA3? :wow:

good to know new things are still being discovered in 3s!

(RANGE should be in caps because it’s a fucking huge advantage. there’s no reason, besides a purely aesthetic one, to ever pick SA1 ever)


#5

I just only posted this up do to damage analysis. Just comparsion.

I didn’t post this to say “Hey guys, SA3 is better then SA1!” Thats fucken OBV.

There, post changed.


#6

New?
Are you being sarcastic?


#7

SA1 is better than SA3. end of story.


#8

SA2 owns you all for free.


#9

what do you think?


#10

FUCK YEAH!


#11

OH HELL YES…but don’t think that SA3 is a bad SA when really it isn’t. Range can play tricks with your opponent thinking that they’re too far away to connect.

#13

Ummm… are you serious…? :wtf:


#14

SA1 might do more damage than SA3. BUT, SA3 is more versatile:

  1. longer range
  2. more combos link into SA3 (strong -> fierce -> fireball -> SA3) or crouching strong -> late cancel into SA3).

Not to mention you get 3 of em with a much shorter bar.

In my opinion, SA3>SA2>SA1


#15

Ok, here is a discussion. I would disagree here. I believe its SA3>SA1>SA2.


#16

This convosation is…wow…Im just stunned


#17

Really guys its all about Blue Nocturne…

And SA2>SA1, IMO.


#18

Actually, after reviewing both SA2 and SA1, I would start to agree with you. SA2>SA1


#19

This guy knows what he’s talking about. Not only about the SA2>SA1 part, but with Blue Nocturne. Blue Nocturne is where it’s at.


#20

Seriously. Blue Nocturne owns. You do some shitty poke strings with holes in them, just as they catch on, CATCH 'EM WITH IT YARHA RHARHARHARHALSR A;SLFJKASFDWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
