Redacted feels pretty weak
She's good at punishing mistakes but not much else. Other characters like Mr.N play the defensive game better then she does and build meter faster and actually have useful specail moves.

I've heard Redacted might be one of the weaker characters. She seems great for fighting in the corner, as you can escape or come down fast, but that shallow dive kick really is built for punishing mistakes more than making huge plays.

"Meh" level Markman destroys him. I got very frustrated at that part of the story mode. Feels like a direct counter since his kicks are so horizontal and punish redacted very well.

Been playing her all day and its really frustrating to have somebody like The Baz or Mr.N or Seth sitting in the corner building meter and its so hard to attak them, but you KNOW you're going to get your ♥♥♥ kicked if you just sit there and let them have all the meter they want.

Meanwhile Redacted builds meter slower and her moves aren't as useful. Kickfactor is good but even using Kickfactor her rushdown isn't great. I often find myself going in when I get kickfactor only to get blown up.

To be fair, the only thing you can do against Redacted is sit in the corner and build meter because the second you go on offense without kick factor, you're going to get hit.

Sure but I don't see that Redacted has any options in that situation. You let them build meter or you're going to get hit. Then when they're in kickfactor you're at a severe disadvantage.

Yeah, that's a big problem with this game. The only way to play Redacted is to be super lame (and not, like, zoning lame where you're still at least doing something in terms of fighting rather that just waiting) and the only answer to that is to play even lamer against her.

It gets old in a hurry from both sides.

I use Redacted a lot, the general idea is that you want to put as much pressure on the other person as you can by closing the distance, but wait for them to try to take the first hit. Don't give them enough room to build up meter safely and approach with short kicks.

some strategies I use:

Don't try to close distance unless you have enough kickmeter to be able to duck. it's really important for close-quarters fighting. Ducking doesn't decrease your kickmeter but instead will boost it so don't be afraid to use it a lot against certain characters.

The Baz was much easier for me to fight as a Redacted once I realized that his kicks do no damage, only his lightning. You have to learn the timing of his attacks so that you can catch him out of the air when he tries to zip by you. Don't let him sit in the corner, just get uncomfortably close to him so he is forced to try to attack or get away. You'll want to watch his kickmeter. If he has enough for his shocking counterattack, be cautious and try to fake him out into using it (if you can, it's pretty much a free headshot). Ducking won't really do much here unless he gets really low with his lightning. I use the kick gem.

Mr. N jumps really high. Since the camera will pan up to follow him, this is a great time to duck, as he can't see what you're doing until he starts to fall back down. Ideally you want to stay grounded and try to get underneath his kicks by crouching, to set up for a counterattack when he lands. Mr. N can back up and try to build his meter, but keep in mind that he attacks at a very vertical angle similar to how you do, so don't be afraid to get really close and push him into a corner where you'll have an easier time catching him.

When I play against Markman, I usually just pick the style gem, try to take the center of the stage, and wait for him to try to approach me. Don't worry about him building up his special kick power too much, it's really easy to duck underneath if they just spam the buttons.
