Sorry for the double post, but I've been watching some of Jonio's stream from last night, just wanted to leave some thoughts.
Ky's new 6HS still looks like a solid oki tool, seems to have huge advantage on block. It actually reminds me a bit of his old 6HS in GGX (I think it was that one.)
Skimming through the Ky vs. Faust matches in the beginning, I only saw one of Faust's new items, the box of donuts. Seems like the big versions are really rare, but really funny. Later a giant chibi Faust came out, made me laugh. Near the end of the stream, a giant meteor drops and Jonio freaks out.
Baiken gets a meterless combo off of throw in the corner. It also looks like Baiken players are having trouble finding how to get a knockdown after some of the longer combos.
Answer looks nuts, looking forward to trying him out.
Air Bandit Bringer just looks like it will always knockdown now. I'm not too excited for Sol's new 6HS. The animation is cool though. Also, I thought I had read somewhere that Wild Throw causes a camera angle change in Rev 2, but I don't think it does. Maybe that was removed after the loketests?
Millia. I have no idea what they've done to her. It doesn't look like her new j.HS knocks down. There was a player doing something with the hairpin at the end of his air routes, maybe someone who knows Millia better can tell what he's going for. I think she has to a pin to get the knockdown now.
There were a few Elphelt matches, I think the player was Fumo. Feels like she has the defense of a tissue. He did the shotgun loop off of CQC xx Grenade Pull, and an the unblockable setup after that, so maybe she's not as gutted as some of us feared.
Still not sure what Ram's new moves can be used for.
I-No's new hoverdash angle seems wacky, I'm wondering if anyone will find a good application for it.
Raven predictably looks like he has to make more use of his excitement mechanic.
It's kind of hard to see the changes for these characters (translator's note, I don't know these characters well enough,) but there was also some footage of Haehyun, Slayer, Johnny, Venom, Dizzy, Jam, Potemkin, Zato, and Axl, if anyone is interested in checking out some gameplay of their character. I didn't watch everything (it's 12 hours,) skimmed through a lot so I certainly missed some stuff.
