st.HP’s hurtbox around his arm got smaller, so it’s easier to use as an AA or a poke.
When Oiled, even when normals are input during forward dash he will still slide a little. (<- i need help with this translation)
Step Low (F+LK) got to be cancelable.
For Oil Shower, the duration of the oil will be stacked now.
The maximum duration will be 30 seconds.
Also, MK/HK/EX versions have 5f less recovery,
and EX version can be canceled into Guard Position (D+3P, aka coward crouch).
Also, Oil Shower will be one of the follow-ups after Oil Slide.
The effect is the same as LK Oil Shower, and he will be in advantage nevertheless.
LP Oil Slide has faster start-up, and can be connected from cr.LP or Step Low.
Oil Dive (including EX), while holding button, can be canceled into Guard Position.
Oil Rocket, Oil Dive’s input property is adjusted, so the feeling will be same with that of Zangief’s SPD.
Hakan buffs! The only thing I really wanted for AE Hakan was hit confirmable slide. My hit confirming reactions are pretty bad so I can’t do it off a single cmk. Now that you can hit confirm it, it’ll be much easier to setup his mixups reliably.
Cancellable Oil Dive! Very interesting.
The two things I would like to further clarify is “When Oiled, even when normals are input during forward dash he will still slide a little.” Is that a change to Crisco?
And “Oil Rocket, Oil Dive’s input property is adjusted, so the feeling will be same with that of Zangief’s SPD.” What does that mean? Is Oil Rocket 2 frames now? How can Oil Dive possibly feel like Gief’s SPD?
I’m very, very excited about the changes. And it’s cool to see DeeJay getting buffs too, for poor Igor’s sake.
In fact, there’s so much interesting stuff that I think it’s going to be quite a challenge to test all the new setups without a training room mode!
