I’ve been playing Blue Beetle (BB) as my main since the game came out. With over 100 hours in practice mode, multiverse and doing ranked matches I can say he is a great character that takes quite a bit of work to do well with. He is more of a hard to play and hard to master type of character which is one of the things I enjoy about him. But making a character too hard to pick up and play might make people think he is low tier or bad when he is more like mid tier in my opinion.
I don’t have much feedback on changes that should come to the character because I think his design and game play is spot on. His trait is bitter sweet most the time (as a stance dancing trait tends to be) but I really enjoy how BB can dance between the 2 stances fluidly during combat.
This may sound like a personal problem (and it very well might be) but I really think it would make BB easier to pick up and play if his 111 string was changed to 112. It sounds like a small change and seems to make the string more complicated instead of simpler. But BB already has so many moments that he presses 1, for instance you might jump in 1 > 111 > df1 to start a combo, although that might sound simple it is very easy to hit 1 too many or too few times. Also, the third hit in the 111 string has a slight gap in it where BB can be poked out, so making it 112 would also emphasize that. Now I know I should just get good and all that but to be honest the 111 string does really affect me too much, I just think changing it to 112 would make the character better and more enjoyable to combo with.
TLDR: Change Blue Beetle’s 111 string to 112 to make his combos more enjoyable.
