She is a lot like 3S Ibuki. However, while Ibuki had a solid fundamental game to fall back on, Talim has no such fallback option, so I feel she’ll fall apart the longer the game goes on.
She’s still a good character, but if/when everyone knows the matchup I would find it unlikely that you could win a tournament with her without playing out of your mind. Exact reasons for that will come about if I ever decide to ramble about the character more.
Realistically, I should be using Sophie. But I kind of have a thing for using characters who are meant to be played one way and playing them another. My Ibuki was very fundamental, but it was nice being able to turn on the gimmicks every now and again, once I got the opponent frazzled.
My Talim life has been a bit less solid because she just lacks the neutral tools. I prefer 90/10 on my fundamental to gimmick distribution, but I’m like 50/50 with Talim. A lot of stolen victories in there.
I want people to learn how to deal with Talim so I can play a better game. Guess that sort of makes me a Talim main double agent.
