Lil Yeetums: 6/4/1/10/9 - Forks
Eye of the Tiger
Okay, I'm the Rocky in this fight: a huge underdog up against one of the favourites that's supposed to dust me in one hit, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel, and here's why:
I actually have a ridiculous speed advantage plus mecanums and he has control issues too. His flipper is just stupid levels of strong, but mine's nothing to laugh at either. Basically, rush him, strafe, create an opening, and flip. Chain flips. It's not like I don't have the speed. I want to deny him control with my speed, pushing power, and chaining flips right into a wall or hazards. When he's against a wall, get him near a hazard, pin him there for most of the timer, and release him into the path of the hazard before it expires.
People don't know how to handle deathflippers and death axes, but you basically need to treat them like the non-perpetual spinners that they are. Luckily for me, he doesn't have many of a spinner's advantages. He has a pretty narrow striking area, has to get under me to do damage, and has to time his flips - against 10 speed CIRCUITZ, with a good wedge and mecanums.
Don't play with fire by baiting him. Just moving fast and actively trying to flank will cause him to swing and miss a few times naturally. Obviously, use my speed to take advantage when that happens. Throw in some off-speed things and don't always flank to the same side. Sometimes, strafe around one way at a safe distance like I'm about to dart in, but suddenly reverse. Use his reaction time and oversteer when he changes turning directions to give me an opening. BUT: don't be afraid to prioritize staying mobile instead of pointlessly aggressive. Wait for the good opportunities. They will come. Then it's time to go 100% Hellhound on his ass as outlined above.
Good luck there buddy
