Jacob, next time after we play together, we should talk and discuss about all of our characters and who we feel which player is most strongest with.

I would say keep Ash, but perhaps (if you want to) try to play more LAME and annoying. :)

Fireball zoning isn't rewarded very well in this game. Each fireball only does 1% chip damage, and your opponent builds more meter than you do for each blocked fireball. The risk versus reward with throwing a fireball is heavily skewed in the favor the of the person not throwing the fireball. I like to play lame in general though. I've always been a defensive player.

I'm not referring to only chucking fireballs, I mean just waiting more in general. I've played people who play extremely lame that don't use fireball characters.

This leads to my main gripe with KOF 13 though. the risk versus reward is skewed so much in the favor of the aggressor. I can play lame with Ash, but what if my anti-air gets stuffed and I eat a full HD combo for it? Many characters have weak anti-air options in this game, and I've even seen things like Ash's flash kick get stuffed by a j.2C from Kyo or a j.CD by a lot of the cast. I'll still probably play Ash, I just have to improve with him much.

And watch more cafeID Lacid videos. ;)

Btw, fellas, before the tournament in 2 weeks, we should do some money matches to hype up and intensify our casuals a bit more, and get some adrenaline flowing. Anyone interested? It can be anywhere up to 5 bucks to 20 bucks with whatever amount of matches players agree to.

I can't decide on a third character for frosty faustings. I want to play Ash, but I don't feel competent enough to win with him. Last tournament he did the least amount of work by far. I have a few other characters I can play, just not on the level of my other 2.

But them combos man!!!!! I think Mr.Karate would fit you and your style well man.

Possibly. It depends on how much money I have left over.

Good luck to you all down at Frosty's this weekend! I'm hoping now that they've finally hired another person at my work that January will be a great time for me to get back into the swing of KoF.
