Hello, everyone. Long-time fighting game lover and player, here to ask for some things to point me in the right direction. I have been playing Skullgirls off and on for quite some time now, starting with the release of Squiggly. Whenever I start to get into it, I scour the net for guides, tech, combos, tournament data, match-ups, etc. However, the problem with this is that when I would and am currently attempt this, I'm met with many guides, information, and tournament matches that are of a different version of the current iteration. The game has gone through so many updates that it was and still seems to be difficult to find anything that gives accurate information. Now that the Golden version of SG has released, I thought I'd pick it back up because surely there might be something more solid, and has had more time to build the community. That all being said, here are my questions.
- Are old guides still relevant? When I first started, there was an amazing Squiggly video guide by Try2Games. It gave all sorts of data on hitboxes, frames, combos, pressure, tech, and a plethora of other things all dedicated to Squiggly. Is any of this still relevant anymore? I'm sure a lot of the basics are, and her character concepts as a whole, but I want to make sure that I have something reliable for the current version to build my foundation and knowledge with. It's incredibly difficult (for me, at least) to find this much supplementary information for a character.
- Is there a better place to get help and ask questions about characters? As far as I have noticed, the character forums on Skullheart seem to have stagnated. Many posts and threads are a year or more old, and I can't imagine that questions will be answered all too quickly.
- Is it the general consensus that having three characters is better than having one? While I know that the weakness of having multiple characters is that having them called as assists can lead to double snaps, it seems much more useful to be able to cover your characters' weaknesses through assists. Are players whom use a singular character at a disadvantage?
- Is "X" team a good team? While I know this is a rather beginner question prone to having the nuance of the meta fall on deaf ears, I just would like an opinion on the balance of a team utilizing Squiggly, Peacock, and Filia. They're my top 3 favorites in the game so I don't much plan on trying to swap anyone out for more balance. I'd just like an opinion on these characters functioning as a team so I can strategize how to coordinate them and what my weaknesses are that I should be aware of.
