If you haven't already seen it, my Morrigan Combo Video has been quite a hit, so far. In it, the focus isn't just on doing some of the most impressive combos you'll ever see Morrigan do, but the editing also takes the front seat here. In this article, you'll see the video, and I take a minute to respond to some of the criticism.

First of all, I'm not the editor of this video, so I can't take the credit for it. However, I can say, as a viewer, that I personally saw the video several times through and was thoroughly impressed by my brother's (referred to as DTM) work. In particular, I loved the ending, which used Morrigan's classic MVC1 theme - it really felt like an ending! Now, with that said, I'm very aware of some of the negative feedback; a few (emphasis on few) are making exaggerated claims of the video being unwatchable because of the resizing of some of the clips. Constructive criticism is fine, but to pretend that you can't watch it all, or that you're some combo video critic with refined tastes is preposterous. I might even dare say - given the overwhelming positive response - that you just might be, as the urban dictionary defines it, a hater. Okay, that's probably not true. Still, the point remains, I believe some of the criticism to be exaggerated and I personally disagree with it. 

So, you're probably wondering what to expect from this video. You'll see a lot of Soul-Fist flight cancel combos, as well as some Soul Drains that take Morrigan's meter from 0 to level 3! If you consider the fact that a couple of the combos don't even end with a Hyper Combo, and start from as little meter as possible, this video should be very impressive to watch. Also, you can see that when assists are brought into the mix, Morrigan's Astral Vision, coupled with her new Soul Drain fireball, proves to be quite demoralizing for the opponent! There were a couple of combos that didn't make the cut, so another combo video is being CONSIDERED. Yes, considered is put in all caps because I don't want to get anyone's hopes up for a new video. Not to mention, a lot of people may just assume that means we're (Me and DTM) are going to make another one. 

Without further ado, you can check the video below, if you haven't yet. Note: A transcript will be written up soon and pasted in the video's description on youtube. I may also paste it in the comments on this page, or in this article, if I deem it necessary.

Hi Byakko, Im a player from Brazil and started to play with morrigan a few days ago. I've been thinking if there is any way to do the soul loop using any of storms assist or maybe after a DHC from hailstorm into twins since the hail OTG the character. Im trying to do this myself by I still don't have quite the execution and experience with morrigan myself. Could you check something like that or maybe make a video ?

Thanks for the vids and keep up the amazing job.

Shouts from Brazil (:

I'll definitely look into what you're talking about there. A DHC from hailstorm sounds doable when I think about it. I'll let you know when I get time to try stuff out. :)
