I still remember like it were yesterday.

Guard crushes are awesome with 33_99B. It gives you a BL or RC mix up if they GI.

LI GC gives you a free 236 B[G] ->3B

WS A+B is the 6A+B BE version. Fast and TCs all the way.

2_8_4_6A+K is a fucking nice advancing pitbull tactic that enters LI and shifts to BL.

tPSL is amazingly good. Learn it and you can throw out of PSL 4.

SC2 Maxi is the worst of the lot so do not set your expectations high, or else you will be disappointed. SC2 Maxi was definitely the most fun out of the lot so far; however if all you want to do is win, then there is a specific way you'll need to play. Alternatively you can just pick X and play defensive, as there is no penalty system that awards offensive play vs punishing defensive play.

SC2 Maxi is also the most difficult to control (imo) in comparison to all of his other counter parts. PSL shifts are different, and the recovery from a multitude of moves which transition to stances is too long. tpsl4 & ipsl3 are glitches in the system, but the do not give Maxi any substantial advantage over the cast. They do give the player more mix-up potential but that's it. The player is either going to have to be able to read the opponent's every move, or revert to a very poke heavy oriented style. I'm curious to see what the younger lot will do once they go up against players who know how to totally shut Maxi down. Will they choose to adapt?, or will they run to a different/top tier character? (that's right you have been challenged).

IRM, you don't understand the power of the GI system from SC II. I also used Astaroth. I challenge you to a Maxi mirror match when this thing is released.

it is safe, and 2aB is the same speed as SCV 6A+B and same animation, imma use that instead :D

Use the WS version. More travel. I thought 6A+B was unsafe. Oops. I can't wait to see what they are going to do with this.
