Asking For F.Renny Tips
I'm having problems dealing with mobile ranged characters with F. Renny. Especially D!ck and Renoah. I play mostly steam canal and it seems to have couple good spots where they can kite me endlessly and chip away my health bit by bit. Her land combo opener has serious problems hitting opponents that are running away from you.

Shift + right seems like a good tool but I'm not sure on what attack I should continue it with. These are mostly 1v1 situations when I try to go after Renoah at the start of the match or try to catch D!ck after we're the last two chars of the round.

With Renoah you want to ideally get under her when she jumps up to shotgun so you're beneath the minimum angle (she can't shoot directly down) and then plant a fire tornado under her to pop her up, then push it away to combo into the standard jumping kicks and fire dive kick :3
Renoah's footspeed is terribad and she'll have trouble even avoiding well predicted fire tornadoes from mid distance without resorting to rolls and jumps.
If the Renoah you're fighting resorts to blocking instead, you can just use fire tornado planted behind her then turn to face away when you launch it to hit her in the back or if you're good with the left-click you can hit her in the back with a bit of angling.

For ♥♥♥♥ and co... good luck. I'm still not sure what to do with them either. Air kicks are dangerous against him because the shotgun hurts bigtime if you get point-blanked while trying but you can't really pull the same tactic as against Renoah because he's far more mobile. I try to find cover and either ambush them if they come around or try and and harass them by abusing the fact the tornado goes through walls and their bullets don't :P I still struggle against them though and a better Frenny player likely has ways around their bag of tricks :3

Teleport once or twice until you get really close to them- I mean, REALLY close. Her combo L won't be fast hit them while they're running away unless you're slightly ahead of them. When you're close enough, don't start attacking until D!ck starts his jump shotgun, and attack right before he lands. Same for Renoah except people who use her are most likely to roll, in which case when you're very close, shift+R after she rolls or begins to get a distance away from you. She'll run right into it. It takes some practice but basically you have to be pretty close before you start up any combos with Renny since she attacks from the side and doesn't do so with much range. Don't let her little speed dash at the start of her attack fool you.
I don't use her R so much so I can't really comment on whether or not it would be better in certain situations.

Thanks for the replies, gotta test 'em next time I end up on these scenarios.

Also you might want to try to lag on purpose. And then melee people to death or flame them however you like. Works for most pros that break through blocks.

Bad humour aside I actually just had that happen to me. A F.Renny was doing the LRR combo on me and when I turned and blocked the teleport behind hit like I usually do it said "BACK ATTACK!" and I got floated all as if I'd still remained facing the same direction. Odd, because whenever lag hits when I'm playing F.Renny the whole combo just whiffs :P
