    Yeah, I was one match away from streamy goodness. Death pool is death. A certain notable East Coast player said my options were "not optimal," but he only won 2 games off of me. =P

    Should probably get some stream time this weekend and next, but honestly, Cervantes is so execution-laden that I'm embracing a rather long time horizon before I consider myself to be good. I'm hoping to have a sufficiently advanced pirate ready to roll by Evo.

    I know you can do it, Hates. Otherwise I'll have to jump in. :)

    We can't have that! The world isn't ready.

    I was the asta player you played first round. That pool WAS ridiculous.

    I felt so demoralized only going 1-2, but then I realized losing to Hates and JTO within my first 3 matches doesn't really reflect the ranking.

    I think I might start practicing up with Cervy now that I've seen how Asta has to fight against high level play.

    There are plenty of good Cervantes players out there. Just because vids aren't available yet doesn't mean they aren't out there. That's all I'm gonna say:)

    You know you want to!

    After sessioning last night with a very good Astaroth I'm coming to think that the big guy absolutely, positively, without a doubt cannot hang with the pirate.

    Australia is a country of Convicts. Convicts are criminals who are on land. Pirates are criminals of the sea, and I'ma going Sailing!

    Fine, I'll make a fat female pirate with an Australian flag on her butt.
    What am I doing wrong (other than failed JFs), and how can I improve my game play.
    And don't call me out for the B2 into 6B+K gimmick. People are stupid.

    After watching a good deal of that, I have a couple of thoughts:

    1. Need more 1AB. That move is the juice. Zwei hits with all the power and fury of a fussy toddler, so there's almost no risk to tossing it out a ton in that matchup in particular.

    2. More 2A+B, particularly on wakeup. It catches all rolls, so it's your baseline you're-not-allowed-to-ignore-me-once-I-ground-you move.

    3. iGDR, iGDR, 2A+B is a better combo. You lose like 7 damage, but the execution barrier drops dramatically and you get better wakeup pressure. Also, no aPat CE punishment.

    4. Pirate has an awesome throw game. Use it.

    5. I'd like to see more mid- and long-range tactics. You don't need to be at point blank. In fact, Cervantes functions REALLY well as a whiff punisher with 3B.

    what about iGDR, iGDR, 2B+K? I think the damage output is roughly the same ~98dmg.

    I think of those two as basically a coin flip...

    A lot of times i find myself BT after second iGDR, in this cases i think 2B+K has an advantage, since it comes out as BT B+K which will also hit....im not entirely sure but i know i ended up doing BT B+K and i think i did 2B+K.

    Also here is 4 hours online stream, whenever you see Cervantes its me. And its a lot me since i won a lot, lol.

    Bear in Mind its online, but you can see my general gameplan which is playing as cheap as possible while backstepping all day.

    Here are some freeplays of mine. Fast forward the first one to 1m30s, before that it's just me struggling with a broken R2 button.

    My grueling end-of-tourney gauntlet against Ceirnian and then Krayzie.

    I played really well for 10 straight games. Alas, I needed to play really well for 13 straight, but my execution powers left me.

    Hates, not that I'm any good or anything, but after CH 22AA, doesn't iGDR tech trap and give damage?

    Yeah, I've been playing around with 22AA followups this week. I didn't know at the time, however. That and 6A+B->CE juice is my latest pet project. =P

    6A+B is also sick after a 3B Wallsplat....you can do 3B W! 6A+B CE into another 3B, iGDR etc, 170 DMG...
