1-Having a lvl 49 Kim Wu means nothing with the double xp
2-You can reach lvl 50 with each character in vs against cpu with combo assist using only heavies. Lvl doesnt represent dextery with a character, only “time” spend in it.
3-2 weeks Kan-Ra was low tier. First,who sets these tiers? In two weeks you have to get used to the 4 new chars, and the HUGE change list for the rest. Its almost impossible
4-Season 3 chars seem to fit in very different roles. Tusk its a heavy hitter bully. Arbiter a frame trap-zoner. Rash an almost unzoneable aerial rushdown. What is Kim?
For me, an antizoner and whiffpunisher monster. Her nunchucks and parry should mean you never should use a reactable projectile against her. Once she has dragons, her floaty jump can be canceled into a cross up oportunity, all her moves can be safe. Coupling this with her dragon kick, you are forced to get up close, her optimal range, where she can open you with her comand grab and start a combo, threat you with her high low game…
Kim has the same gameplay as a mix of Tj and Spinal:
Spinal:get her special resource, get you conditioned to not use special moves (power devour/nunchaku/parry/dragon kick)
Tj: once conditioned, punish everything.
Block low: overhead opener/superman punch/grab
Block high: low kick into opener/grab
Always threat with dash/dragon cancel into regular/command grab
