Help on Sword and Spear

[ Edited ]
39 replies 351 views Edited Aug 15, 2013

Hi! I've recorded more BoH videos and I would like some help.
Under each video I've wrote a self-assessment of stuff I did wrong or could have done better.

Please enhance these comments as I'm sure there are more stuff beside what I wrote.

 

Thanks!

 

Ares vs Hades

 

Round 1: Mis-Parried
Round 2: Evaded too late
Round 3: OK
Round 4: Block wrongly

 

Hades vs Hero Poseidon

 

Round 1: Mis parry, Block
Round 2: Mis parry, Timing, Block
Round 3: Block, Timing
Round 4: Timing, Block

 

Poseidon vs Poseidon

 

Round 1: Block, Dive Kick
Round 2: Evade, Block
Round 3: OK
Round 4: Parry

 

Zeus vs Poseidon

 

 

Round 1: Parry too early
Round 2: OK
Round 3: OK
Round 4: Parry in the wrong direction, spammed RZ

In video 1 you didnt do anythng wrong. In 1v1 you shud see what type of defense the guy lacks and than counter/punish his mistakes with that.

Hey czeuch! I haven't seen the other three yet but in the first video I noticed that you were not minding your surroundings. That guy was clearly baiting you into the corner. Just something to keep in mind! Always pay attention to the nearby hazards of the battlefield

@P4e: I hate "runners", I mean, ppl that go to the corners Smiley Tongue
I hope I don't do that either lol

BoH is a mode in which the first to make a mistake dies, usually. Or almost dies.

**bleep**! But I still won 4-0 I guess, so he should learn some 100% combos, because he caught me a few times in 80% ones. I'd be dead if he knew the 100% ones Smiley Tongue

In video number 2 You lose patience and just did your majic early and you also used hold square to much.against any posiendon player epecially the ones with high majic and phyisicl defense you cant mk mistake and you hv to be o careful becuz thy are ridiculously at a high advantage already.its lk there a boss!! Lol.

So just dont spam the same move becuz if thy counter it with jump heavy you hv a problem. And **bleep**. He gained more defense being a demi god smh i hate fightn posideons in 1v1

In video 1 you did a good job, but he was just doing the same thing over and over, he would bait you to a corner, then use the 100%combo pay attention to see if a pattern forms (as this one did)

In video 2 your timing was off, and there were plenty of instances where you could have extended a combo, like for the blade of Athena try doing Tri, Sq, Sq, Cancel, Sq, L1 Sq. you jump sliced a bit much, try to vary it up a bit, other than that you did good.

video 3 was ok, when he uses the L1 Tri of the sword, the first thing he did each time was hit Sq, when he did that, you should have parried.

Video 4 was good, but he had a pattern, your party was off a little bit, and he was lagging pretty bad sometimes. RoZ wasnt need twice in a row, try to vary it a little bit. Lastly, as soon as he started sprinting, you should have grappled immediately, dont chase runners, they want you to do that.

The baiting stuff is something I really didn't notice Smiley Tongue

I'll take some pratice on this S, S, L1 cancel, S, L1+S...

I'm always looking to improve myself Smiley Happy

@golden: sometimes I "dance" around the enemy holding S, it confuses them... But not always Smiley Tongue
@air: thanks for the detailed analysis on each video Smiley Wink


Thanks for your tips folks!
