I think we can all agree Valk is disgusting in low to mid level play, beating the pants of of those who don't know how to play against her. However once you get to higher levels of play or against Someone who knows her mechanics , the fall off is dumbfounding. She needs to be able to keep up in the endgame which currently she does not.

She's the only character whose lights I can parry, and I suck so that's a bad sign.

If you can parry hardly telegraphed 500ms lights then you are propably rekting lawbringers, highlanders shugos and raiders, they do very nicely telegraphed 600ms attacks (except lawbuddy's top light)

No, he is right.!!

you often eat the first light but the second must follow in the valk chain for her to land a heavy or sweep.

you know it is coming and therefore
easier to parry. IT IS MORE THAN TELEGRAPHED...:(

i main rep 10 valk and i parry other valks easily knowing this in-out..

hardly anybody play her therefore not many know how to counter her well.

this is why we hope for more mix ups for Valk.

in 4v4 her sweep or knockdown is good value. it can also save you in 2v1.

in 1v1 it is not much value.
