    Hold on. I am upset that this video said to nerf Claw. All of those things are incredibly situation and a majority of those situations would have been nullified with a reversal. Only people who know absolutely nothing about Vega would fall prey to most of this. As a Claw player, the risk of a lot of these risk outweigh the rewards by leaps, bounds, and walldives.

      Did you see the final message at the end of the video?

        Not to be mean, but you need either to detect the irony of the comment or watch it until the very end. Also, in 90% of the setups the only risk thay you face is screwing up the setup; Otherwise they are safe, as the Reversals whiff in the vast majority of them.

    That music, I see what you did there.

      ๐Ÿ˜€ . I figured that it was a nice way to pay a tribute. Also… I wasn’t able to find a music that could fit the video as well as that one. ๐Ÿ™‚
