In the blue corner, making time fly like a whole volley of arrows, it's Tollymain as Welsie Acktern!

In the red corner, target locked and ready to roll, it's Dire Wombat as Ottavia Six!

This battle will use Special Actions.

Commentary/heckling welcome!





Can Welsie relegate Ottavia to the past tense, or will Ottavia show why you don't bring a bow to a gunfight?

Yeah, you can change your attack pair after seeing what priority value I ante, or go for the bluff and pretend to change it. That's a better answer to Ottavia than most fast characters can boast. There's no reason for you to ante before you see my number, so I should probably just ante first every beat. Ottavia has a whole bunch of minimum ranges too, so I can't just ram up in Welsie's face every beat like I did as Thessala. It's a way better matchup for showing off Welsie's stuff, for sure.

Burgundy Twelve, at your service.


But... her UA specifically says she can change her number in response to an ante. (Otherwise characters like Shekhtur could just ante and ruin her bid.)

First ante is traditionally a coinflip, which... *fwup* *smack* Ottavia "wins" and goes first. Also Welsie's ante is face down so Ottavia can change her ante in response to Welsie's I guess but she's working with no more information than before.

Yeah, I already submitted my ante with my attack pair, since seeing Welsie's ante tells me nothing. Welsie's UA is weird; it's much weaker against an opponent that doesn't ante, and it's also really feast-or-famine, since Welsie can only recur successful attacks. Last time I played Welsie never got to use it, but I suspect Tollymain will find more opportunities.

Wait, if Welsie activated Past, shouldn't she be using Parallax Arc? Present would activate Anomalous Grasp, Future would activate (actual pair).

Advance 2, then advance 4.

I really wasn't expecting Tolly to use a pair when I had target locked it. Welsie's ability to choose her attack pair at ante also means that I can control her choice of pair with my choice of priority value. I can pick a priority number on a pair in Welsie's discard, let Tollymain lock in his choice, then switch to a different number to hit whatever I think is his actual pair, and Tolly can only call my bluff by choosing a pair that he knows will be ruined by my UA. I didn't expect him to expect me to jump to that level of I know you know on beat 1 though, and it seemed like it would probably only work once, so I was thinking I could spring that trick on him later in the match. Instead I got to see him box a shadow and get punched in the face by a cyborg.
