So I’ve not been one to post a thread yet about anything negative about KI 2013, BUT I’m afraid this week be the first. You see, at launch, I thought eyedol was going to be a difficult characters because of the random changing. However, the changevvariation does not change enough for me to notice.
I really made this post out of frustration because eyedols jumping heavy punch is STUPID GOOD. Regardless of what the IG team said about Nerf’s to this move, I noticed nobody made a post SUFFICIENT ABOUT THIS TOPIC. Here’s why I say this 1) it has a lot of active frames, 2) the hitbox is huge, 3) its plus on block (LIKE REALLY PLUS IN BLOCK) 4) it has an ambiguous cross up, 5) if you air to air it with a light jumping Normal (the quicker normal) you loss unless you read it beforehand, 6) YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT HE CAN MOVE BEFORE YOU AN INFINITE NUMBER OF TIMES.
Now I’m sure there are those ppl who have refutes to my claim. Obviously, some characters have more tools to deal with it on reaction better than others. You have your 3 frame uppercuts and counter (hisako and Kim wu only), but what about anti air normals? Can anti airs beat eyedol jumping heavy punch? NO. eyedols clubs hitbox extends downward which makes it difficult for me to even trade without getting the ground bounce.
There is literally NO REASON for most eyedol players to NOT use this button. Since this character is relatively huge to the cast (not to mention he can cover distance easily by running). the players has NO FEAR of getting anti aired because worse case scenario it’ll end up in a trade that either makes eyedol even with the opponent or slightly less advantageous on wakeup. The ground bounce is another aspect of this move that grinds my gears. Since this button is so plus, WHY CAN HE CONVERT INTO A FULL COMBO!? if I feel like I need to block jumping hard punch. I’m either going to stay blocking and eat the potential mix up or try to escape and get ground bounced into a possible recapture -_-.
I’m really trying to just ignore this button and find ways to defeat it but I can’t consistent make my opponent not use it. I either need to be told I’m wrong and you guys can enlighten me on how to beat it or I’m putting this game on hold until they patch this.
