    @UncleBiscuits79 - By lag heavy I meant almost impossible to block or hold. In any form of lag they are a nightmare to deal with. It's just that she has so many strings with a low in it. For example: 2H+K, 6K2K, 7PK2K, 6PK2K, 8PK6P2K, etc. No offense specifically towards Hitomi though, it's the same for other characters with a plethora of lows (take Kasumi or Helena, for example)

    @King Jaimy So exactly what do you mean by 'lag heavy' in regards to hitomi's lows?? I main hitomi and statements like that always puzzle me. Hitomi's lows don't seem to benefit much from lag, it's just that her lows typically grant frame advantage and maybe people are confusing that with lag when they try to mash afterwards and they get out-striked??

    Her low attacks aren't very fast compared to other characters. You can just block anything that ends in her low kick and throw punish the HECK out of it.

    Yeah the guy is pretty good, however I think lag also played its role in the match (favoring him more than not). I can give you some advice in a PM, but I'll have to do that tomorrow or in the weekend since I have to go now. ;)

    I didn't think your performance was too bad. You made some good reads on your opponent (e.g. 0:58, 1:58) and I saw good combos (e.g. 0:26, 2:00) and a nice setup which was ruined by lag judging by the looks of it (0:50). That throw should've beaten that counter hold, but he just mashed there.

    I did see a couple of flaws in your Momiji play and general play though. If you want any pointers, tips or advice, feel free to ask me.

    One last note: Hitomi's lows are very lag heavy, so don't blame yourself for getting hit by them. Also, your opponents seem very harsh and disrespectful. I mean, 0:33 - 0:36 was really disrespectful.
