    Why she's broken :

    • Can actually spam assist all game because you will easily be punished for even attempting to jab any assist that touches you
    • Has infinite blockstring that is only weak to pbgc and even if you pbgc her pressure then an item or bomb or plane or assist or something will hit you ANYWAYS and its still her turn
    • Playing lame is always more rewarding than playing offensively, even when you chip your enemy for half their hp and they finally get in, just counter hit them and start your own pressure!
    • "Peacock has bad defense" despite having a DP!
    • A teleport because it won't be Injustice 2 without one right lols
    • Nothing is unsafe with Peacock, assists exist, planes exist, bombs exist, DHCs exist
    • It's always her turn to play, once they pick Peacock the matchup is always "get in and don't fuck up" and that's dumb. No one should have that much pressure simply by picking a character.
    • Backdashes move her 1/3 of the screen while her run is in the top 3 in the game.

    Peacock and her playstyle are dumb. It's lazy and cheap. Yeah it's beatable but its mentally exhausting to play against Peacock, while they put in 1/3 of the work and get twice the reward.. Her actually only weakness is that she is weak to resets and guess what so is the entire cast. Peacock players, you deserve less respect than Beo Band players.

    She's not broken, but she is pretty dang difficult to get in on if she is fullscreen with good assists. She wants to get full screen and zone, that's where she feels most comfortable. If you let her get to that point then you should be at a disadvantage given that she is a zoner.

    I'd recommend playing Peacock and seeing what others do to get in on you. She can be surprisingly rough to play. Learning the limits of what Peacock can do when you use her is a good first step to knowing the limits tthe other players have.

    but I don't really feel like effortposting in this thread, so the rest of my post is a shitpost

    same

    peacock and big band were mistakes

    must be quite stressful for you since your posts are from 2002

    Peacock player here, each match is like a series of heart attacks because zoning patterns actually have holes and people can be smart enough to slip through. In my experience it seems like the people who complain are the same people who keep jumping forward into projectiles seemingly not aware that they can block in, gasp, midair.
    Y'all should play some bullet hell games and build some pattern recognition. Additionally, everyone who complains about [insert character here] should really go to lab and grind it out.

    She does have bad defence.
    Peacock has this big gaping hole right above her and diagonally above her where she can't really cover. The best she can do is cover diagonally with Shadow of Impending Doom but they'd have to set it up preemptively and it gives them one less option to zone you out with.
    And that DP? Yeah, hits just in front of her. You jump and that thing will whiff peacock into a 10K combo.
    In other words: Once you're in, you can really just jump to get above her and she can't do anything but hope to be good at blocking.

    "B-but what if she has a DP assist?"
    Doing meaties should hit the assist out of it, not sure. Anyways, this is SG, you probably have an assist of your own. Empty jump call assist is good, yo. Block their shit then let yours keep your pressure going.

    "BUT WHAT IF SHE'S ALREADY STARTED ZONING, I CAN'T GET IN"
    Chicken block her all the way to the corner, my mang.
    Additionally, I find that another weakness of peacock is her round start. Go in aggressive right from the get-go and don't let up. Of course this is kinda weak in QM where you don't immediately know what assist they're running and thus can't really counter it effectively.

    "OK, I'M IN BUT SHE JUST TELEPORTED OUT OF MY PRESSURE"
    Teleport is hella punishable, dude.
    Read their teleport and punish 'em big for it.
    Additionally, some people like Bigband can punish on reaction with SSJ or other fast moves.
    If you're really lazy you can just call a long-lasting assist with good coverage and she can't teleport.


    TL;DR
    You could have spent, like, 20 minutes in training mode instead of making this thread.

    Based on your points, you should probably pick Peacock and destroy everyone to show people how good she is.

    Hope to see you at Combo Breaker 2018!

    I agree, Peacock is utter bullshit and should be removed from the roster. Mike, get on this now. Fix your game.
