How good is Squigly?
Its always alarming to see a game where u have to pay to use one of the characters included in the download. So, is there any hint of ptw activity going on here?

Well she was free for a short while when she came out. as far as I know you can't be matched against someone else who uses her. She's probably the most balanced skullgirl out of all of them

Hi AXI,
As Lo-fi said, Squigly was free for three months (or was it even longer?) after the game released. This 'free at first, then pay if you missed the boat' is the plan for all the future releases (Big Band just got here, still waiting on Eliza, Beowulf, and Robo-Fortune). Don't worry about them being treated as pay-to-win nonsense!

As far as balance goes, I wouldn't say Squigly is particularly OP. My winrate with her is kinda low actually since she has stances and cancels and generally isn't made for a rushdown 'pick up and win' approach. She's lots of fun and cute as a button though, so I still play her =)

I know this is sort of unrelated, but Marie is a Skullgirl, none of the playable characters are.

That's not true at all actually.

Confirming what Jason said, if you don't have her you can still play people who use her

Anyway, she's not OP at all, she's just good. Her gameplay and design overall are brilliant, though. Her stance and sing mechanics are beyond unicness, she requires some skill to use at best of course, but it's worth it.
IMHO, She's pretty good at dealing against Painwheel and Cerebella, and has a bit of a hard time against Filia and Parasoul
