Because you can now do ff3~d BOK2. And I can’t overstate how huge that buff is, because a lot of her moves give ff3 as a follow-up on counterhit (cd2, cd2,1, 2+3, uf2,1, SS1+2, and I’m probably forgetting some). A lot of her already decent mini-combos suddenly give close to launcher-levels of damage. It’s ridiculous. It’s also her optimal ender on a far wall splat, and it’s a lot easier to land than the old u3+4 > df2+3-ender.
I’d love for something better than u3+4 or d1 against Eddy though. I’ve been messing around with Kazumi lately (df1 pickups on RLX are stupid AF) but I’m just not having fun with her, and I’m not confident enough in my Mishima play to pick one of them. I don’t really like the other obvious candidate (Jack) either. Anyone else I should be thinking about here?
S2 Leo is so much fun though. You have so many ways to approach the match now.
Also, we get another tournament next weekend, and another one in three weeks. Usually we’re lucky to have three tournaments per year over here, now we get four in two months. Happy times.
