Introduction

Alcott

He is the captain.


As the big burly character of the roster, what you see is what you get. Big health, big damage, big hitboxes, big, BIG, BIG. Alcott is strong in these categories, while unsurprisingly weak in movement. His vast amount of armor options though help him stay as a threat against those trying to zone him out. Up close you can pressure with a rewarding strike/throw game, or play with meter and hit confirm from mid-range pokes. Overall, Alcott is a simple and approachable character that gets the job done. And that is bringing your opponent's health to zero. Just remember one thing:


He is the captain.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • GIANT reach and looooooong pokes.
  • High health, large damage, and menacing Risk Gauge damage.
  • Multiple armored options to cover many scenarios.
  • Rewarding grab game; both midscreen and the corner.
  • He is the captain.
  • The least mobile character in the game.
    • Have you seen that airdash?
  • Every armored option (except for 2D) loses to low attacks.
  • All jumping attacks are not overheads, and can be blocked low.
  • Relies more on callouts, as he lacks in the startup and plus frame department.

Character Information

EL2 Alcott Meter.png

Punch Meter: Alcott has a meter above his Action Gauge that determines the level of his 236C punch. The meter can be charged with 214C, which will max the gauge to level 3. The meter slowly depletes over time, and empties out once the 236C punch is used.


Risk Gauge Damage: Specific attacks from Alcott when blocked will deal increased Risk Gauge damage, allowing him to guard break much easier than the rest of the cast.


Captain: He is the captain.

N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A Armor 5-27 (Mid/High)
  • Alcott steps forward with an armored dash.
  • Great for closing the distance after a hard knockdown or to sneak in a throw attempt.
  • The armor isn't frame 1, it isn't active for the entire animation, and 236A cannot armor lows.


236B

1535 All 17 Launch -15 Fatal Connection Active
  • Slamming his axe to the ground, Alcott erupts the ground in front of him.

Level 3 7000 All 45 Hard Knockdown -2 -
  • This is it. This is the move. This is what all Alcotts strive to land. The punch.
  • After a slight delay, Alcott lets loose with a standing punch that powers up based on the charged meter of 214C.
  • With each level, 236C deals more damage, becomes safer on block, and starting at Level 1 will deal a hard knockdown on hit.
  • Even if blocked, the least amount of chip damage the move will deal is 1000, while a blocked level 3 punch deals 3000 chip damage.
  • The level of the punch is determined by when it connects, not when it was executed.
    • If the input was pressed while the meter was blue (level 3), and it goes down to yellow (level 2) during the startup, you'll get a level 2 punch.


214A

911 All 14 Launch -36 -
  • Alcott poses like a captain, and lets out a blast.

  • If the opponent hits Alcott during this state, the opponent will be frozen in place for 10 frames.

  • This allows Alcott to punish moves that are usually safe on block by getting a consistent 2B/5B punish or greater depending on the recovery of the armored attack.
  • The armor isn't frame 1, it isn't active for the entire animation, and 214B cannot armor lows.

Super Moves

Combos

Meterless

Midscreen

To get to the corner, 2C>236A is a vital tool.

5A>6A>5C>2C, 5B, 5B>2C>236A, 5B, 5B>2C>236A, 5B>6CC>236A. Carries almost the entire stage. If you are closer to the corner than the opponent, 5A>6A>5C>2C>236A in the beginning crosses up, letting you do the rest of the combo and getting the corner.

2A>5B>2B>236B Sadly the best you get without meter from a low.

A+B, 5B>5C>2C, 5B>2C>236A, 5B>6CC Don't hit the marker on your throw midscreen, just let the opponent hit the ground, you will get better corner carry and positioning afterwards.

Corner

In the corner, 6CC>236[B] is the main damage component of combos. You can do it twice in most combos and still get follow ups if you delay properly.

One meter

Corner

5D/2D enhanced, 6D, 5B>2C>236[B], FSjC djB, 6CC>236[B], 6CC>236[B] Over 8 000 damage. Must be some distance from the corner. Must be enhanced 5D/2D.

6A>5C>2C, 5B, 5B>5C>FS236[B]xx214C, dash 6D, 5B>2C>FS236C Can start with two 5A's and still work. Does almost 7000 damage and leaves them with one and a half guard blocks afterwards. 5A>5A>5B>5C>2C afterwards breaks their block and stuns them. If you are close enough to the corner, the 236C can be followed up with 6CC>236[B] for almost 10 000 damage.
