Hey, guys I just made a Youtube Channel come check it out: www.youtube.com/user/powerslight.
Oh well, I watched the Cloud vs Cecil one and as a Cloud Mainer, I'll tell you what I think you should improve.
- Build your assist.
Assist in this Game is one of the most (if not the most) important thing in Battle. You need to throw some attacks to keep the Gauge full, so you can plan something. There was a lot of times back there that you only run, jump, dodge and the assist keep falling down.
- Air Double Cut
It's by far, Cloud's best choice of Assist Building and attacking. It can connect with some Assists and lead to powerful combos. You need to keep that in mind and use more, I see little Double Cuting on that one.
Cool move and all, but don't spam it. Climhazzard is like Cloud's saying: "I'm attacking, block please."
Too slow, predictable and punishable. Use only to punish bad moves of your opponent or in the middle of combos.
- Blade Beam
It worked a lot of times on that one, but you should be able to connect with Aerith right? If the beam connects it, call Aerith just before chase and then start chase, Aerith will surely hit Seal Evil and you will be able to attack again (Works with Double Cut and other Chase attacks). And almost forgot, don't rely on Chase. It's 50% on both sides, use it sometimes only.
Empty bravers will only lead you to doom (Dash>>Braver=Punish).
Yeah, it can work sometimes, but most of it, your opponent will dodge and counterattack.
Well, when you entered Ex-Mode you became too predictable. It's like "Now he can't block, Slashing Blow Slashing Blow Slashing Blow!" Yeah, he can't block, but he can dodge. Slashing Blow it's not that fast, is punishable after dodge too, be aware of this.
You should be working Cloud's air with Double Cut, Slashing Blow and Aerial Fang/Rising Fang (The last ones depends on match up, choose the one that suits best to hit your foe).
Also, don't simply enter Ex-Mode. Try activating when you connects an attack to be sure that you enjoy the bigger damage of Ex-Mode in the middle of a combo and to use the fact that when you enter Ex-Mode, foe's assist gauge becomes empty, then he can't escape the combo.
PS: Bravery Regen helps Cloud a lot.
As I said earlier, Aerith can connect with chases.
But, in other places she's kinda bad. I see that you tried to use her in the end of Omnislash V5 and there was not Seal Evil.
If you plan to continue with her, try to call between the time foe is in the air>>ground. In that way, she's gonna go for seal evil even if the foe is already on ground.
- Final Suggestions
Well, I kinda recomend that you use Kuja as an Assist (Obvious reason), replace Blade Beam by Fire (works good on pressure), use more Double Cut to build your Assist/Hit (Pretty fast and less predictable), watch your Ex-Mode (Don't get to careless only because you crush Blocks) and Practice Assist Use (Mandatory).
Also, use Meteorain observing the Stage. Order's Sanctuary has some strange objects that can work as a wall for Cloud when he performs Meteorain. It protects you from punishes.
I think that's all. lol
For more info, go to Cloud's Tab on Character Discussion and read his guide.
Hope it helps you.
Lol you should update the OP with actual videos instead of just a youtube channel. XD
Anyways, I see you have one of my matches (me as Garland against you as Lightning) against you up there. It was pretty close. XD
Here's the link so you can update the OP with it later. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9IRHja8DZY :P
Spoiler:☆Dissidia 012 and Beatmania IIDX player.☆Spoiler:
Lol, I know right. I'm trying to do that. It's kinda hard since I upload the videos from my Psp on to Youtube. Also yeah it was pretty close I was amazed that I won that haha it could have gone either way actually XD. I've practiced with Cloud and Jecht a lot lately they would be tough to be beat.
