Skarlet Thread - "Yiah!"

In fact, you should focus in using Up Slash / Down Slash combined with a basic 2 hits combos, instead of depending on them alone and isolated to start a juggle and next, a combo ....

For example, I use F+2,1, + Up Slash almost all the time , and follow with a combo, instead of Up Slash alone. I use Up Slash alone just as a normal special move, not as intention of a juggle combo start

For Down Slash, use F+3,1, + Down Slash, and next, the rest of the combo, works better, connects. Using Down Slash only sometimes, not as a proposital juggle combo starter

Doing quickly, all stuff above get chained together and so, you can go next for your favorite combo sequence.

Of course that, when using Up Slash / Down Slash alone, if you see that connected and hit, if you have good reflexes, so, you can take the chance and go for your combo, but, I prefer the 2 basic sequences I told, because are 100% guaranteed, just all you need it's that the very first command to enter sucessful against the opponent.

XD

I use F+4,1 - Down Slash - dash - F+2,1,2,1+2 - Kunai/Port a lot I love that combo and F+2,1,2,1+2 is my fav skarlet's string.

It seems like Skarlet's true potential is going to lie in her ability to combo into reset into 50/50 into combo into reset etc. She can juggle the opponent for about 6 hits then end with her FPxxFPxxBP string to reset the opponent into a staggered standing state where they must immediately guess whether they should block high or low. A wrong guess leads to another ~30% damage and another reset and another guess. Basically Kabal has nothing on her.

Of course with an obscene 48% damage midscreen with no meter, I'm fairly certain she's going to be nerfed soon. Hopefully when they bring her damage down, it doesn't weaken her reset combos too much. I just wish I had a strong enough level of execution to play her for real.

Those resets are pretty sick but with only one low-hit combo starter (from what I saw), the 50/50's are quite as deadly. Don't get me wrong, they still worry me if I were to come across a good Skarlet player. However, unless they've proven they're able to hit me low and combo out of it I'm willing to block high and handle any high/medium starters. Those resets could definitely be problematic, but I've gotten used to Scorpion's 50/50's after playing against him enough and Skarlet may suffer the same once she's more fully-explored.

Either way, though, sick resets. Until I better learn to fight against Skarlet, I hope I don't have to fight too many people who know all this. ;)

Been playing with your first combo and if you want 1% more damage you can end with f4,3. Or you can end with a f3,1 EX dagger toss for 33 percent.

You can also red dash into x-ray for like 37 or 38% at the end if ya want.

I just have a hard time red dashing consistently after the f2,1,2, 1+2. I keep canceling into the dagger throw before the 1+2.

Edit: found out what I was doing wrong and am able to do it consistently now.

Hate to be the mean b*tch.. but
Half those combos won't work sense the dash slide into up/down slash is actually a glitch. It might not be as much damage or some of them might not work without it.

Overall, that makes her look OP lol
