Some new moves in this video, I think?
Hm... I don't remember if that FC 3A+B A string was in the build when I played. It probably was, since I didn't use FC 3A+B much lol. The only thing I've seen that's blatantly new is 6BB knocks them behind her now (don't know what it does now if 6BB both hit on normal hit, previously it was just a normal knockdown right at her feet. That probably hasn't changed) and her model has been updated.

Xianghua has been buffed in the E3 Build.

1.) CH 6BB now launches backwards.
CH 6BB ~ BT B+K
CH 6BB ~ G ~ 3B+KK

2.) 66BB is now a NC

3.) Both Hits 66BB stun on CH.

Also Xianghua is still OPed.

I see. It still looks pretty good on NH without a knockdown. I'm happy with it. It comboing on NH makes it about 300% more useful, especially with 6BB being in the game.

While it may not be SCV Pat good when it comes to comboing & getting meter on NH it makes 66BB even more useful.

I wouldn't be sure what's NC and what's not. Most of the players from those videos are buttonmashers who rarely ever block. So many strings look like a NC. What's definitely new so far is the stun animation on CH.
I also wonder what will be the highest damage follow-up after these "crumble stun" animations like CH66BB. Maybe somewhere in her movelist will be her old 1BB. I hope there's something better than just 3B or iFC3B after every stun that makes the opponent fall to the ground.

Her old 1BB was moved to some string follow up in SC unfortunately.

Certain NCCs are NC in SCVI: Sophitia's 4AB, Maxi's old A+B, & Xianghua's 66BB qualifly. Xianghua's 6BB hit grounded opponents. Xianghua's old 1BB or Leixia's 33_99BB is in Soul Charge 6KBB. Holding he 1st B can go to SXS. In SCIV, it was the best SXS entry because SXS K couldn't be interrupted by a 2A, but it could be stepped to both sides.

The game will tell you if something combos or if it's a counter hit. Mashing is irrelevant to that. 66BB registered as a 2 hit combo and there was no counter hit, ergo it was a NC. It's pretty easy to deduce, mashing or otherwise lol.

Xianghua's WS AA is now a NC in SCVI.

I was saying for YEARS that Leixia could have used a NC 66BB. And people were like "nahh..".
And now we're here

BTW, does the old 66A+B or WRB of Lei in SC6? Seems not news about this move yet. I almost forget how OP this move is in SC2.
