Well, since no one has said anything since the game has come out, I guess I'll start. I got it day one (from my lovely boyfriend as a Valentine's Day present ^_^) and after these two days, here are my first, VERY EARLY impressions. Feel free to counter anything I say that you disagree with, especially since the Rachel forums barely have any love.
-j.2C special cancelling is fun and quite useful, particularly when you don't always do it and your opponent doesn't see it coming and they are forced to block the frog
- For whatever reason, the Carl matchup seems harder this time around, but I don't think it's because of her damage nerf. Any Carl players know why this might be?
-The damage nerf is annoying at times and is taking a bit of getting used to, but it's not too bad (nowhere near CS1 badness)
-Combos are essentially the same, which is good, but due to changes on untechable time (less untechable time) some are harder to pull off
-BBL damage nerf, at least in my opinion, was made out to be way worse than it is
-Ragna despite being S tier still seems like a favorable matchup for her
-Relius' range and that move where Ignis bashes you from behind (214B I think) could be problematic
That's all for now. I'll contribute more the more I play the game.
