Despite all being an issue this would be my top list of hardest lagged matches
What do I consider lag? I’m not talking about the unplayable slideshow, but the one that messes up your confirms or let you see just the half of the animation.
#1 Grapplers!! and Tusk
Despite a mashing and lagging Hisako is really awful, Raam and Thunder can be a total nigthmare. Since it’s hard to see the normals it’s even harder to react to the follow ups. A Thunder flying everywhere, dashing and throwings random grabs after normals or a Raam connecting things you thought they wouldn’t reach (because you are missing frames) are a menace.
Tusk makes a lot of damage and you can miss the timing when trying to punish him making the deflect more dangerous.
And the biggests problem is the damage. Even you try to react to breaks if you aren’t fast enough you will get a lock out (or worst a counterbreaker) and teh damage will hurt a lot.
#2 Good grounded characters with strong mix ups and neutral
Nope, not Wulf (yet!). But Jagos, Orchids and Kim Wu (this last one just because of the damage, however it’s not as menacing as Jago) can be hard. A good Jago with mixups who is missing frames to see the gaps where you can punish can get frustrating. I’ve even seen some Jagos would go for the yolo lag option random wind kick, because it can be hard to react in thos situations.
#3 Vortex characters with teleports
I think of Fulgore and Spinal and maybe Eyedol
Fulgore is really something…Though the match seems ok the lag regarding teleports is extremelly confusing. Sometimes he dissapears longer than he seems supposed too. Spinal has some gaps between his attacks where you may thow a buton but if you are missing frames is still hard
#4 Nutty Wulfs and maybe Rashs
I’m referring to any Wulf that would spam overhead and dash around instead of the great buttons he has. I have fought both turtlers and nutty ones. I still enjoy the mirror, but when it’s just random stuff and getting me because of lag it doesn’t mean much after all =S
It’s like a Shadow Shadow Jago, with increased teleport skills XD
#6 Glacius and Aganos
I can punish them offline. Still have a lot of trouble online =S
Ok, that’s my list of lagging assasins XD
