I think when going up against those Characters is when people realise they can'tdepend on Rachel's usual bag of Tricks..... You'd have to level up your game to beat them.... so its just easier to Switch.

Which is a Shame because sticking to your guns is the mark of a True Rachel main. She's a Stubborn one. ;)
At that point you just have to hope that your CH damage is enough. I think... A basic CB an CH with her is like, 150 dmg so thats what i put my money on as her...

LoL.... you know what I dislike about Rachel.... the fact that her Air Throw Doesn't Scale on counter hit.
If it did we would shred threw everyone's health bar soooo fast. My only problem with her is i get in the habit of doin 6pk too much. (And her weird guard breaks that i still manage to get beat out of and that other than her 41236T we have no way of getting in if they can block everything...)

Yeah.... for someone so Tall she has an awkwardly Short Range Game.... but the doesn't scare me all that much, I like to play Passively. Punishing with Rachel is fun because her :6::F: does such good damage.
Unfortunately half the people I fight are overly aggressive so i cant even get punishments off properly. The other half shares a single brain cell so i have to be aggressive and thats not my style. If i get a counter hit Ill end up going to my normal pattern or drop it. My pattern works but i could be getting SOOOO much more damage out of her. I never use 7/8/9K enough to get guaranteed damage.

People think i use her cuz she's easy.... Try getting to U- with rachel only and don't complain. She has really wonky matchups but sometimes she puts high tiers in their place.
I hate it when shes called "cheap". Imo there are no cheap fighters. Just cheap styles. And regardless of whether it was cheap, a win is a win. And there's always the triangle system... Not only that every characters strength is evened out by a weakness. If you want to be strong you'll move like an old man on xanax. If you want to be fast you'll hit like a spitball.

I don't fuck with Rachel like that(I can't use her XD) but my favorite attacks would have to be 2H+K, it's so unpredictable and a good way to make people stop acting scary and be a man and stop blocking highs and mids. XD Her Special sidestep K attack is also really good, good range and it's a low at that

Shes easy to use ( as in combos and what not) However using her online is a whole other story. Literally a huge mind game on everything. Her speed is probably the most difficult part.

I got so confused. Ha ha you mean her rollthrough i think. My problem is i tilt very easily and forget to be a grappler
Shes a grappler? I know she has VERY strong throws but i always thought of her as a "striker". The same way Raidou and Phase 4 are strikers. Lots of juggles and poor neutral.

What I mean is that yeah Rachel is super easy but she's not really my style, I know her general set ups and stuff but I don't use her online, I'd be better off using someone I'm stronger with like Kasumi, Naotora, etc. I use her on occasion tho since I love her yurlungur and her character as a whole.

And yeah Rachel is a rushdown type grappler, she's not that fast but she not slow either, she's probably the fastest out of all the grapplers including Tina. She's scary af to deal with, she can give a 9 framer a run for their money, shit. XD
