Using Shoals mostly, with occasionally switching to Markman. I use d-pad down and X on PS3, and the first two bottom buttons on my stick on PC.
Who's your main and what buttons you using?
I've had great success with
REDACTED, much to my surprise. She's the last character I expected to like. I'm also using Markman as an off-character, with similar success.
After fiddling around with several placements, I've settled on d-pad Left and the X button on this 360 controller.
I've been playing A LOT of The Baz and I really enjoy his style, but I feel that "maining" him isn't a good decision seeing as he's such a different character. I've been looking into maining some Kick for now, to get better at the game on the overall, and then maybe going back to Baz.
On PC I use an Xbox controller, I put it on my table with the top of the controller facing me and B + X for Dive and Kick, respectively. It's quite a weird setup but it's been working damn fine for me.
I just played a little of the story mode with
Redacted and Kick. Like Kick better so far. I'm playing on PC with an Original 360 controller, and I'm having a hard time finding a comfortable button config. I'm using A and X and holding the controller sideways.
hard to say since i've already changed a bunch of times. started with shoals, feel like she's a good character to start with with decent air control but i think she's too slow to go up against anybody really good. constantly messing with dive and kick, probably prefer kick of the two, he's a good safe character for if you're unsure of the match-up. more recently tho i've really been liking kung pao with the kick gem, i find myself barely diving with her, only really to punish big mistakes from long range. her kickback into her kick has pretty good range and is so low and fast it's hard to punish compared to a lot of kicks. it's super effective against steep angles. i'm still finding my way around the game though so i'm open to trying other characters with different gems
i'm using my madcatz stick i use for all my fighting games, using bottom left and bottom right buttons
Shoals for main, Kick for secondary. Running into a SHITLOAD of Baz's, which is great because my Shoals does REALLY well against most Baz players...
Had an absolutely stellar Dive VS Kick match last night. Came down to 4/4 and every round went down to 5 seconds or less.
I've been using Kick for the most part, but sometimes
REDACTED if I feel it's a good matchup. I'll usually pick Kung Pao against Baz players because her horizontally-aiming kick works well at kicking him in his goddamn face.
I use X and L2 on my TTT2 arcade stick. An arcade stick seems like overkill for a game like this, but I mean, why not?
Been playing Stream. So good, so fun. Biggest issues are Shoals, Redacted and Mr. N players. Jefailey players I eat for dinner every time. Dive/Kick are very good at punishing me, but I can still win against them with a lot of cunning or someone bad at execution.
First started with left/right bumper on 360 pad, then went to Q and O, then back to bumpers, now my hand hurts so I have to stop playing divekick for a while.
But man is stream fun to play.
