skill issue, crash is easy to avoid unless they are using thermo fist/boxing or iron leg(the crash on thermo fist is too fast to dodge, you have to parry, and the crash on iron leg is just so big you better block it)
If it’s smash, if I were you I would just absolutely ravage him every time he uses it. Go in there and spam literally every attack you’ve got. Start off with snare, it’s a combo starter, and hit him with a blast and a self explosion.
If I were you, I’d keep a shockwave explosion on me for that situation, too.
I’m gonna put it into straight-forward terms here, you’ve improved on your air shots but that’s probably because the used shape here is fist + decent speed stat from shadow BUT IT’S STILL GOOD.
You randomly used self-explosion as a SHADOW MAGE, that’s one factor for losing though not too big.
You failed to punish his smashes that he missed while being far away from you, you can punish him so by using blast + beam and considering the speed factor of the fist shape it’d be easy + shadow AoE is decent.
You were mostly hit by his shot on the ground, unsure if he sucks at air shot-SHOT, it really depends on the situation though.
You could’ve won had you punished his smash skill, that’s mostly the general thing you could’ve done and if you didn’t do that random explosion spell, others are pretty minor like poor positioning and what not but i’m not gonna bother since it’s really just a small mistake.
And maybe implement your air time more wisely? again up to you it really depends on your playstyle.
was 9090 drill, which i swapped from sword when i discovered there’s not much speed difference.
wrong button xd
originally i was planning to do
T jump + Q blast + Leap Spell + Q blast.
Instead i got
T jump + Q blast + leap doesnt react/charges on it’s own even though im not holding down the key as I land on the ground.
