Today I didn't play as much since my connection was in use + the people I usually play with were a bit busier. I finally dedicated some time to Photoshop, as little as it was. But I disgress...
There's not much that stands out for me to note, but today we played with equips again... EX builds seem to be a lot less effective this time around. I forsee assist builds becoming a staple like EX builds were back in DFF.
Fortunately today I was playing better. But I feel so betrayed by assist Tidus. D: His Hopstep isn't that great for punishing attacks and dodges like Garland's Bardiche (whom I was using whenever I wasn't using Tidus) but he's a lot easier than Garland for comboing, at least as far as Firion is concerned. Tidus is great for damage since comboing with him is easy, but he's not as good in stages with little ground. Garland is more versatile for punishing and pressuring, but harder to combo with unless there's a wall nearby. But at least he can combo off of Swordslash, unlike Tidus. I'm not sure which assist I should stick with.
Annnd here's today's replay. I just randomly recorded and uploaded this, so don't expect anything fancy.
