I’m going to start off by saying that I don’t like this move. I don’t see the rational of adding a mostly defensive option that can be used when you’re being pressured. I liked the idea of 100% offensive and complete disadvantage on defense for Eagle. But after collaborating with another Eagle player, I’ve noticed how strong this option is when being pressured. Like seriously, this thing is strong. One frame of breathing room and it’s either pushback on block or complete entire screen knockback, where Eagle is comfortable with. Even when knocked down, you’re not always going to get that perfect meaty, espiecally when it isn’t a hard knockdown.
You can even use it when people try to get in like Omen, Gargos, and Cinder. When you’re arrows fail you can just plop down the bird, get a trade, and be at an advantage.
Now I know the bird is deactivated for a long time, but Eagle can easily stall for enough time to get the bird activated again.
What do you guys think? Should Eagle even have this option to him? I don’t think it’s OP but I think it’s too strong of an option for him.
