And that’s where I go. I’d be completely lost without the advice on this board where it pertains to this matchup and honestly Sadira in general. I mean, I was okay with her before, but I’ve learned a lot from some great people on here!
Well yeah, I meant laughable as in it’s a bad suggestion. Dangerous is another good adjective to use though, and for the reasons you suggested. I was more or less just spitballing ideas for fun.
I definitely believe in improving and collaborating as well. Truth be told, I didn’t start throwing out move suggestions as a replacement for this. I’d mainly just like to see Sadira get another special move on the ground. Doesn’t have to be super powerful or safe on block or whatever, just something that maybe gives her a little more variety on the ground, and if it helps with this one bad matchup, so much the better.
But to be clear, that’s not me saying “I don’t want to learn this matchup” or even “I need help from the devs for this matchup.” I just like seeing characters get more to do, especially when it comes to the original six characters in this game.
No, there’s no problem with the original six having less moves than characters like Kan Ra, Cinder or Gargos. Some people love the elegance or simplicity or whatever you want to refer to their movelist as in this regard. I personally like more moves, more options, more ideas going in to rounding out a character’s movelist. I think Jago’s more fun with a charge fireball and that Glacius is more fun with Liquidize and the way they changed his instinct.
So yeah, if they can keep adding a little bit here and there without cluttering up their move lists too much or making them too complicated or unbalanced, then yeah… I’m in favor of that, even if it means that the game doesn’t sit, unchanging, for several months at a time.
I’m guessing we have a fundamental disagreement on this issue and that’s obviously fine. I don’t begrudge you for having the opinion you have one bit. I know that my opinion has some inherent downsides, such as making it harder to learn the game, but I’m okay with that and I see why you wouldn’t be.
Again, I can see why you’d want that. Personally, I like that they change stuff up here and there. I love the pre-season rebalances that they’ve done and I love seeing a character get a new toy or two to play with. If they think that they can improve something, whether it be Fulgore’s instinct or Sadira’s combo trait or whatever, I enjoy seeing them come up with new stuff.
But again, that’s never meant as a substitution for good labbing and conversations with more experienced players and honestly, sometimes a bad matchup is a bad matchup and that’s okay too, even if hard work only makes it a little less of a hair puller. That’s just me though.
