Kasumi Strategy
---------------

6.1 Against Computer

Ok, winning with Kasumi is not very easy, but If you know how and when to use
the right move your oponnent will not have a chance. But against a computer 
you have to use your combos, make them large and donīt let him get away, because
if he come out he will start with his combos. So give him your up,down Combos
with kasumis kicks. If you near a wall make the big combo lijke this:
df,df+p > p,p,p > df,df+k > p,p,f+p,f+k and you hit him against the wall at
the end and thats 20 Damagepoints more. Than you have to make stuns to START
your combos is not good to start a combo without a stun, he will come out to 
easy and thats not good. Learn when to use her backturned moves at the right 
time, and moves like uf+throw or uf+p,k if he is runnig at you thats very good
because youīll kick him back again. And counter every mid-kick, so youīll hit 
him in air and you can make a combo. Try to hold you oponnent at the wall if 
you can and hit him out or against the wall. So thatīs it for Kasumi. I think I
will write more soon.

6.2 Against Human Player

If you fighting against a human player with kasumi youu have to use her Down,Up 
combos. Make first p,p,k,k some times and the when your opojnent think you will
do it again push p,p,k,d+k. Thatīs the way you have to beat him and donīt nake
to often the turnbackarts against human players. Theyy wil hit you. Excapt in 
a combo use the ub+k move, but not if your oponnent waiting for you, use it in 
a combo or if heīs running to you. And donīt try to make big combos on ground 
just make big mid-air combos and hit him against the wals. Use the stunmoves 
when he try to counter every move you make and hit him in air and give him a combo
if you not near a wall donīt make p,p,f+p,f+k make p,p,f+p,k,d+k you make a hit
more and itīs looking good. One thing more is that you have to use her f+k,k or
f+k,d+k kicks often itīs working.. belive me ;-)

6.3 Tag Mode

In Tag Mode is the most Importand thing, that you have to know your 
character(s) very good. What I want to say is that you have to know when to
chance. Not only if you donīt have enough energy anymore, you have to chance
in every combo you start. Iīm playing with ein and Kasumi and one of my 
Combos is looking like this:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
13hit Combo!
db+k,p > p,p > db+k,p -->Kasumi > p,p,ub+K -->Ein > p,p,f+p,d+k
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is a good looking combo and a good combo. Use every move you make and make a 
combo with it. Donīt hit your oponent in air and wait start changing and give 
him some hits. But you have to find out for yourself how to combine. The rest
just like playing against a computer player.

6.4 Survival Mode


OK to beat the comp in survival mode with Kasumi COMBOS are everything, donīt 
try single hit moves like ub+k anytime only in the right time :-) Make big combos
and donīt let your oponnent get away. Make moves like b+k,k or f+k,d+k or k. Then
try to hold him at the wall and hit him everytime back he gets up (it works good)
but if you want to get points just hit the comp if he comes near with s+k to hit 
him away. And if you down on the ground stay and wait. Another usefull moves in 
survival with Kasumi are u+k, uf+k or p, and the p,p,f+p,k,k combo. Thats all 
for Kasumi try it and youīll see :-)
