Katarina Alves

Katarina Alves

Katarina Alves can be defined as an “all or nothing” character to some degree. She has low damage and the risk of getting hit for a blocked combo. She has strong CH engines in her 444 series, which is a fast CH launcher, d2 with a big hitbox and high crush potential, and df4 a knee CH launcher (being a knee is good as it will beat the matches and similar).

Katarina Alves Strategy Guide

Katarina Alves

She has low attack high damage but is always in danger of punishment. Her series 4, 4, 4 launches on CH and d / f + 4 is another CH launcher. What’s more, her d + 2 comes with a huge and well-liked hitbox. However, as mentioned earlier, you need to be brave to try Katarina, especially in a competitive environment.

The reason for this is that her low-damage attacks are very slow and punishable. As for her safe low attacks, they are not much and do not deal damage. We highly recommend digging into her frame data to learn more about her best attacks and frame trap options.

In addition to low attacks, Katarina Alves has a strong medium slot punch and string + on-block. While she has a few homing attacks in her kit, they’re not that good. So, going up against an opponent who likes to avoid a lot, you can get a little bit of a problem.

With her matching abilities, one of the easiest combinations you can do with Katarina Alves is u / f + 4, 4, 4, 4, 4. If you need something more complicated a little bit, try u / f + 4, 4, f, f + 4, Screw!, b + 1, b + 1, b + 1 ~ f, HAR + 4. Although it looks scary, you will no difficulty in connecting multiple b + 1 inputs. For wall combination you can use d / f + 1, u / b + 4 or d / f + 1, 1 ~ f, HAR + 4.
