A while back people started clipping things from my games vs players like Catfight and Twixxie and other chandys. They would ask for advice as well. So after beating Soul Guitarist in bracket, about a week later I just sorta vomited knowledge on discord about the MU that Gibus would later use to double eliminate Catfight at CEO 2017 and thanked me with a big hug after. So I guess these things are really useful for the MU. Im just going to copy and paste every single thing I typed out in the discord due to time.
"Nightslash throws you back right away lol idk the actual frames for when but you can dodge alot of things with it depending on the timing
hence spaced 2x on shield and then nightslash because they try to grab
and it dodges the grab and crits
for this mu we have tools that really help us but in reality its still 5:5
you have to be patient, bait out overheat, realize knock off beats alot of options and is actually safe on shield
4y is amazing for oki pressure as well as delayed 5[x] and 6[x]
Ice punch is a real oki as well vs ghosties because it catches the iframes backdash
and can lead to combos
Finish fury swipes unless you can get a wall combo going off of oki or the end hit will fill their meter. then opt for knock off to deprive them of it
2x techs hex and dodges WoW while agility can be caught by hex
you can 2x high laser to get in
if you have life lead sit full screen and camp out the clock
chandy cant actually chip you out or break shield full screen
you can dodge full screen WoW easy
if you nightslash into YYY you have to go for 6A because otherwise the 6X throws them behind you"
"you can taunt/taunt cancel vs chandy 6xx"
"play super duper patient and safe until they overheat
and if they backdash 6[x] and the timing doesnt catch, they usually are gonna do it again
and if you know theyre gonna backdash or jump and cant overheat, you can icepunch them.
ice punch beats ghost backdash and will beat any jumps
but I cant stress enough how patient you have to be. Especially vs players like cat.
higher level chandys are usually also grab prone
and never forget full screen in DP weavile can out camp chandy"
"honestly one thing slip taught me I dont think other viles do is run in field
every projectile chandy has we can outrun so we dont have to shield
wait until you can get a grab, get under him when they swing, or try charged homing attack
Togekiss really helps in field
its weird because it helped me vs soulguitarist but not against cat
vs cat emolga/rachi/cress helped me more
umbreon is good too in that mu
because it gives a debuff
TAUNT GIVES DEBUFF DONT FORGET THAT"
"also you can bait out minimize and catch the end with BA, you just gotta get them to do it
they cant punish knock off either"
I apologize for the very unorthodox format for a guide like this. It reflects my gameplay I guess. In the future Ill try to right my guides better and not just copy and paste guides I wrote on discord here.
