A few days ago I played Dav0’s Gargos in Ranked, and while I was able to get in a few times, I was completely destroyed. This happens with just about every Gargos fight I encounter. I find the Gargos match up even harder than S2 Kan Ra, of which was also an uphill battle.
During an interview with Kalypso, he stated that the match up was almost a joke in how bad it is for Sadira.
Gargos has all the right tools to keep Sadira away from him. From a distance, Gargos can zone Sadira via his Portal Punches. As a Sadira you can dodge most of these with a well timed Blade Demon…
Only problem with this though is that Gargos still has time to either sweep you with his wing or jump wing flap you back to where you were.
You can take baby steps towards him and use light Blade Demon, but once you are a few feet away from him, he can dash grab you with his command grab.
If you manage to get in close enough to him to start Sadira’s areal shenanigans, he can simply anti air her and start over again.
This is all before the minions come out…
So fellow Sadira mains, any tips on how to defeat Gargos, or is this something IG really needs to rethink?
Personally, and in my humble opinion, I think Gargos’ close anti air (I believe it is down HK) should be removed or nerfed. I don’t mind the work getting in, but once I’m in, I should be rewarded, much like Kan Ra.
