where do you guys like to put leona on the team?

my favorite spot is point, sometimes 2nd.
3rd is a no no IMO.
you can go buck wild in the 1st two spots and have someone clean up if she dies.

Really?  I see her as an excellent anchor, especially in the older Japanese videos closing it out with those HD combos.  GG btw last night, Damn your Leona!

i figure with her tool set, when the opponent doesn't have meter, they can't punish hard or have tools to deal with her space control.

so you can go nuts and not have grave consequences, and you earn your meter this way.
so next character you'll have the meter for a fat hd combo

similar to the dynamic of putting takuma on point and earning your momentum

gotta block those overheads ~_^. gg's last night though, it was fun!

^Great vid man, I'm stealing the meter building combos.

Found something interesting with Leona while experimenting with reversals, not sure how useful it will be but a nice option to have.

You know how you tiger knee supers or special moves to get the air move out low to the ground? You have to actually be neutral or whatever and time it properly so you don't do it too early or it won't come out or you will just get the ground version (like with K'). This means that you can't do this out of block stun since you are completely grounded during the block animation.

For some odd reason Leona can do this, she can do her air super out of block stun. The timing is not even strict, you can actually buffer the super (tiger knee style) and hold punch while she is blocking (don't do it too early of course or the buffer will expire), she will just do it the moment she is able to act after recovering from block. You can use it as a reversal basically.

Not sure if any other characters can do this as well but its particularly good with Leona I think because of how much priority/invincibility her air super has.

Have you guys been using her counter hit C+D combos? She has rather strong ones...

Mid-screen -

CH C+D, b~f+D, hop V Slasher (C/EX version)

Near corner -

CH C+D, b~f+D, b~f+D, d~u+C, DC, b~f+D, TK V Slasher

I've tried it a couple times,but I ended up messing up the last part of it....so I just go for the Grand Saber instead,until i can figured it.

Oh the corner one actually works from quite far... So if you see that they going to end up near the corner then just do another b~f+D... I usually start charging anyway... Then when you see that they won't be near the corner, just do a hyper hop and buffer the first part... Then when you see her in the air around the peak of her hop, do the rest of the motion... It will connect every time...

Ok,it makes sense to me now....I wasn't sure about the hop,because I always tried to do a short hop instead of a hyper one.
