red is very good at counterswinging (singles/doubles and full combo) for high damage and last hits, purple is trash. but if u can PB very well then you can make it work.Hello! I have around 200 hours of mb2 under my belt now and sadly have only used yellow for most of it. I'm trying to learn Purple/Red styles for some variety. Everything I've been reading is either about Nudging or like 6 Years old. Any tips and help is appreciated. Thanks!
The best tip i can tell you so far is to ignore this guy, he speaks like he knows the game but he is only saying bullshitHello!

Noone is laughing at the fact that you use Purple, man - it's a very fun stance and you can definitely kill people with it.Any proofs, or just toxicity as usual? xD
All i saying aprooved by experience.
P.S. (Sweaty's dont like criticism and mediately became toxic)
I'd love that sometimeEhh...Purple with Saber Defence 1 is a free meal for any duelist who can press Mouse Button 1 and Perfect Block, unfortunately.
You'll find Red a lot more effective for the vast majority of cases. Have done a lot of Purple, especially in recent times (bored of Blue), and while you can catch someone unawares at times, there's not a single instance I can think of that where I would have found it easier to duel someone with Purple over Red.
- Learn the combinations. Red relies heavily on its 3-hit combinations, so make sure you spend time learning how to vary your hits while performing 3-hit combinations (general rule is to hit a different angle with each swing to lessen chances of being Perfect Blocked).
- You must learn how to Perfect Block (this is especially true against faster styles, where you will be relying a lot more on counters).
- Practice the Red jump: perform an attack, as soon as you hear the swoosh noise, TAP forward+attack+jump+reload. Red jumps cover a lot of ground, and are good for launching oneself into the enemy from distance, following up with a second attack to initiate.
- Don't always be aggressive: Red has very potent counters, so it's okay to allow the enemy to hit you first, and then follow-up with a counter combination.
Might update this with specific tips on how to fight different styles. Also, I'm happy to pop on Sentinel Duel Server to offer some tips/guidance.
