Overall rank #109 (PSN)
Most picked gem: Silver
Strategies & Findings :
- The most regularly played character that I'm coming across online at the moment.
Unless the opponent is actively using her super meter, is fairly easy to beat using
Redacted's feral stance special. This causes her 2nd kick to whiff overhead setting her up for an easy double-tap kick reply. Real difficulty at the moment is countering defensive Shoals players who anticipate the feral stance & kick late.
Kick - Possibly most difficult opponent to play against at the moment due to his speed and very low kick angle which makes feral stance difficult to time & also going in close near suicidal. Strategy at the moment is to play defensively & aim for the centre line timeout.
Baz - Due to the sustained lightning bolts, jumping unnecessarily usually leads to defeat as
Redacted has a very high jump height. Only real success I've had against Baz players is to let them take the aggressive option & hope that the angle of their dive is close enough to obtain a quick double kick return after whiffing. Maxing out the super meter doesn't particularly help as staying in the air longer leaves you open to falling into a 90 degree lightning trail.
Dive - While similar to kick, his speed isn't quite as dangerous which makes him open to aggression. Found a particularly effective tactic of using
Redacted's wall cling, the subsequent jump usually gives you a good angle to then jump & headshot.
Others: I haven't seen enough of other characters to determine any particular threats. Stream seems to have the same problem as Shoals in that he's easy to Feral Stance against. Markman & Jefailey both have a larger hitbox & are typically played defensively waiting for you to whiff a kick close.
Mr N's float could be dangerous used to fake out a Feral Stance but I've yet to see anybody use it in such a way.
