The Next Big Thing: Abigail General Thread





I’m gonna try to get as much frame data as possible (unless I get ninja’ed by Toolassisted).

edit: huh, Frame Trapped seems not to work with the latest version. We’ll have to wait :frowning:


I’m probably going to start gathering frame data this evening when I get home from work.

PS. b+HP > canceled to Vskill stops Fang’s fullscreen nonsense

The Street Fighter V General: Orbs, Orbs Everywhere
The Street Fighter V General: Orbs, Orbs Everywhere
The Street Fighter V General: Orbs, Orbs Everywhere
The Street Fighter V General: Orbs, Orbs Everywhere
The Street Fighter V General: Orbs, Orbs Everywhere

I thought V-Skill didn’t work against fireballs?



Official frame data here.
Warning: st. HP is -3 on block, not -5.

command grab is 6f.
His V-Skill counts as a special so it can be special cancelled into from normals. But you can also cancel VS into specials.


His grabs:

forward throw = 140 dmg/170 stun
back throw = 130/170
Abigail Smash (qcb+K) = 180 (L), 200 (M), 220 (H)/250 stun. EX version: 100/100 (wall bounce)
Bay Area Sunrise (KK > LP+LK) = 200/250, EX 240/300


I can’t help but think of this song when I hear his name


That’s the actual origin of his name.


How! Many! Times! Must! I! Say!

Do NOT jump at me!


More accurate frame data:

I did mine under the assumption his st. jab was a 4 framer, but apparently it’s 5f so advantage on hit/block increases accordingly.


Man played a long set vs Ryu and Gief. Shit is not easy, you press any button and they jump it seems you gotta hold that jump in. I was getting wrecked tryna poke gief since my normals so damn slow. Idk eough first day.


Tested out corner throw loops. Abigail can do HK command grab into walk forward LK and EX command grab. He can also loop normal throw endlessly. Works against 3f moves.


has Abigail options (except of Block) against crossovers? Did someone try the HK or Backroll? or is there even a jab AA for it?


Yeah his jab AA is pretty dominant, he has no particular problem with crossups.

Anywhoozle heres fruits of my labour for now


Apparently Capcom has started offering their own frame data on their site, to see it you need to register using your PS4 or Steam account.

One can hope their frame data is actually correct though.



So I was doing Abigail’s run and sometimes it wouldn’t let me cancel it into his specials. I think I figured it out. If you hold b or db and double tap 2k to run(don’t just single tap it), you won’t be able to cancel the run into your specails. This really feels like a bug to me.


Abigail is by far the most interesting thing to come out of this crappy game.


So how’s Abigail’s fun factor? Ed gave me a reason to come back to sfv for a month or so, I’m hoping Abi does the same. I barely have time to play anything anymore but its been like 2 months since I booted this thing up…in getting the itch. I’m on a trip so I can’t try him out to Friday.

At least from the youtube compilations I’m watching he looks like fun, and he also looks like he’s actually good. St. LP looks like an insane AA, or is it deceptive?
