Report of my match vs. Hobusu. English is not my native language, so bear with me =) this turned out to be quite a lengthy write-up.
I’m jumping around Degrey at the beginning, while he mostly blocks, get a throw into a 28pts combo in and then jump around some more. After more jumping I finally manage to catch Degrey with my Q for 15 more damage, empty my hand and refill with Bag of Tricks. Then he knocks me down (tricking me with his pointy-finger-thingy), and promptly repeats the process, getting me down to 30 in the meantime. I catch him with two back to back throws into block and dodge and get him down to 1hp (even GGing in the process, since I’m bad at math =P) I play 7 throw into 7 Point, Counterpoint throw, he tries to rotate it, but I have my smoke bomb handy.
I start off with dodging his attack and playing 2 fresh Aces for 18 damage. After that Quince points at me to play attack, so I play it into his throw and empty my hand into his Joker. Woo-hoo, got 1 dmg in! The game proceeds as most my games against Quince - I get him to about half HP, he hits me and starts to spin, at which point I start losing miserably, trying to outthink both him and myself %) I meet his attack with a throw and eat a 6 spiced with triple Ace down to 14 hp, spinning continues, I get 1 combo in and lose with my 9 throw to his 7 throw in the end.
I try my newest secret weapon, which is DeGrey. We both get some chip damage in to start things off, though my hand is not the greatest. I get in a few throws with almost no follow-up. After a successful Patriot mirror attack Hobusu times out with Quince and so I catch him with my throw into his Dodge/Block split (which the game randomly gives him, I guess). Luckily this doesn’t seem to phase him much, as he proceeds to wipe the floor with my face and keeps spinning happily. I catch his spinning Queen with my faster 3, then get my 3rd unsuccessful Counterpoint into his 3rd fast attack. After that Quince points and says “Play a throw”, so I play it, making sure that it’s faster than the K that he’s spinning. He gets to draw up to 10 and I get to combo into my double Ace for 36 dmg and leave him at 6HP (Degrey in a nutshell). He points at me twice, insisting that I should play a dodge, at which point I’m too confused to thoroughly think through his trickery, so I just hope my 0.2 speed K gets me through, which it does.
Setsuki hits me with faster K and proceeds to combo me for 36 dmg (T_T), after that she correctly identifies that I’ll play chicken and introduces my Ace dodge to her throw into 21 more dmg. I catch her with another Ace next turn, ready to finally bring her some pain, but she crushes my dreams with a joker. I catch her with my faster throw into double Ace for 32 dmg. Then I get caught with her Q into some more pain and I’m at 17, catch her with Ace dodge into what looks like throw-double Ace-30+ dmg, but this girl just never runs out of Jokers! I hit her once, but in the end she throws me into gg-combo.
Good ol’ Setsuki mirror. I personally don’t like it, but I’ve played her the most and I have no Idea who to play against her, so I decide to duke it out Highlander-style. This was a fast and furious match, I do all the weird stuff you could think of, like attacking into opponents SoF, but apparently Hobusu didn’t think I was that mad of a person, so I catch him off-guard a lot. Few combos later there is only one Setsuki left, which is I!
Good games, Hobusu, superexciting too. You were right - Setsuki mirror is hillarious (as I watch a replay), but I still hate it =)
