Ever since RZR|Xian’s amazing performance at Final Round 20, all eyes have been on his new main: Ibuki. Long considered to be a very technical character with a steep learning curve, Xian’s performance with Ibuki had many top players rethinking her place in the game’s tier list.
For those who are either already having trouble with Ibuki–or are looking to prepare for the matchup as more and more players get good with the character–Alienware’s Naoki “Nemo” Nemoto recently shared some notes on how to deal with the character. While these notes were in Japanese, Ryan “Fubarduck” Harvey has translated these notes for English speakers.
In addition to helping deal with Ibuki, Nemo also shares some thoughts on Xian and the game’s overall balance.
