Ok Webnation, here’s a video from my first match against Eyedol and my God, I was not expecting this kind of match.
Right from the get go, I knew something wasn’t right. By the time I had lost the first life bar, I knew there was no hope for a lowly scrub like myself.
I knew the jumping MP was a ground bounce, what didn’t know was that it left Eyedol safe to throw you and start the cycle all over again.
In the second match, I then discovered that it was also a cross up…
My guess -apart from the fact that Sadira has next to no options against this type of attack without meter- is that while Eyedol just keeps throwing this out, he doesn’t need to worry about changing form.
As you can see from the second match, he had to change to his rushdown form before he could start the onslaught all over again, so the player wasn’t comfortable with zoning me to death and must know that there’s pretty much no way to AA Eyedol when he’s performing this overhead, as Sadira.
I really don’t know what it is that was out of place about this: whether it’s the jump arc, the speed of the jump, the size of the hitbox, the fact that Sadira’s AA HK won’t/can’t hit Eyedol or if I’m just having the worst day of KI ever. What I do know is that I know people didn’t buy this season to spam overhead ground bounce to win a match.
What has been everyone else’s experience with this?
Has anyone else been a victim of this kind of braindead tactic?
Am I really this bad at the game to not see what to do to get out of this BS set up?
Any and all input is welcome, even the “Git gud” ones.
