I hope what we’ve been shown all makes it into the game, and ubi doesn’t listen to the low reps who claim he’s OP as he is now. I mean it’s glorious.
To any cent mains who don’t want to watch it here’s a basic recap. I’ll start with pros then con
•Zone is now feintable starting at the second swing or third swing.
•2nd and 3rd light are now 500ms (don’t care about this as much)
•New combo:Light into punch-Any light you do can now have a punch afterwards
•Feintable Unblockable Attack. Yes a legit “see orange can feint” attack like shugo has
•Feintable punches. Both held and normal punches ( I think, or at least held) can be feinted into a GB. Wether it’s a soft feint and hard feint combo idk but it’s most likely a hard feint. Soft feints are still there though!
And now..the cons
•No more cutscene:Charged heavies wether unblockable or normal held, don’t guarantee a charged jab anymore. As he put it “it doesn’t guarantee ANY type of jab
•Light into GB seems to be gone, completely. I mean it was kinda useless but still...it’s technically a con if it’s gone
Now this could be bad for more than one reason. We might have to rely on small combos and now overly powerful punishes. For instance our OOS punish for 90 dmg or hell the old one for 65 dmg is gone. It might be as simple as-
Gb, backthrow, light or heavy into charged punch while they get up into eagle. And this is purely if they can’t dodge it. Our wallsplat dmg is probably a unblockable guarantee and that’s it.
Now this would fit cent more, his training video said to use your kit to harass your opponents. And this definitely harasses your opponents but at the same time when you look at other characters and their punishes cents is kinda..low.
Im happy for cent, don’t get me wrong but well..idk it would be almost like beserker as one guy put it. Revens channel. Prob spelt that wrong but whatever. It’s more feinting, and I hope they give him a slight stamina buff either to decrease in stam feint cost or his pool. Either that or make his lights not bounce on block. Light into jab is good yeah but at higher reps my friend said there are people who can parry orochi light spam on console. And his lights are faster aren’t they? If that’s true then light jab is kinda useless,
