Eagle First Impressions

#82

Even though he’s a S1 character, doesn’t Jago fit that all-around good archetype and then in later seasons, he got his laser sword flipout and J. LP flipout for mixups?

Their offensive strengths are supposed to make up for their defensive weaknesses, so I don’t think it’s a problem. Characters like Sadira, Spinal, and Eagle can be absolute menaces when they get going. Plus the universal shadow counter system makes sure they have a respectable defensive option even if they’re stuck blocking.

Though, I’m pretty sure Keits said on the Eagle stream that the bird divebomb can be used as a reversal, though its long cooldown is a problem afterward.

I played a good Eagle yesterday, and he gave me the bird. :stuck_out_tongue:

In truth, I find him quite interesting, if not a bit involved. I do see them doing some nerfs on the bird though. I literally had one Eagle trap me in a corner and continuously used Screech to lock me in place as he pummeled me.

All in all, I really like him though, even though he’s still not my cup of tea.

@Dayv0 did the same to me in our set. There are gaps but the amount of high-low blocking you have to do in that situation is a little overwhelming. I feel like Screech duration may be getting a reduction soon.

This is kind of a ■■■■ post but I really like the accessories that Eagle has even tho they’re not too flashy.

Eagle looks WAAAY better with a mask. :eagle:

Just played against my first good Eagle. Jago’s inability to catch keep-away characters really showed here. Plus, the mix-ups were TJ Combo-level insane. Just tough stuff. Very glad his damage is as bad as it is because that bird lets him get away with a lot.

I noticed that Eagle’s fighting stance is reminicent to KI Classic Fulgore, if you look closely.

Damn, it indeed looks similar.
