Nemo went 3-0 using G during first round of Topanga League — HiFight analyzes his tricky usage of V-Skill, instant overhead, and speech meter building

Day one of Topanga League 7 has come to an end. Liquid|Nemo, RB|Bonchan, and CYG|Fuudo were able to finish the day with 3-0 victories during the first round of matches in this round robin tournament.

Notably, Nemo and Bonchan were both using Season 3 characters to compete. While Bonchan was sticking with Sagat, Nemo was pulling off some dirty tech with G.

Nemo's opponent, FAV|Ryuusei, was trying to fend off his G with Urien but was met with some unfamiliarity in the match up. Since this match took place in an online environment, HiFight was able to get the replay for his "Just Frame Analysis" video — we are able to see frame data and inputs thanks to this method.

Anybody looking to learn G is sure to pick up some new tricks by paying attention to Nemo's play style. Should G absorb a projectile with his V-Skill while still airborne, he is capable of throwing out a jumping attack before landing.

In the event that G already has access to level 3 Presidentiality meter, it's possible to utilize G's speech to generate meter after a successful combo and still be able to take advantage of the okizeme situation. This probably assumes that you have the opponent trapped in the corner by this point.

HiFight also points out an instant overhead with G that only works on tall characters when they try to fuzzy guard. Despite the fact that G is the newest character to become playable, Nemo already seems extremely familiar with this oddball fighter.
