One of the dirtiest and simplest knowledge checks an Ivy player can — and will — do to you in SoulCalibur VI is test your reactions at range with 2A+G. This low (and its longer range variant, 3A+G) is on the cusp of being seeable with practice. But it’s a difficult task, one that’s multiplied by a similar animation for her mid 2B+K.
But with practice and patience, you can still deal with this low in a multitude of ways, and work your way in to Ivy’s weaker close range. There’s a lot of ways to move around 2A+G, some more effective than others — today’s video shows off some of those, and what you can practice to help spot 2A+G’s startup animation.
