Frozen Needle is by my sight her most useless move . It is very previsible . Only a noob will fall for it . Even the AI doesn't fall for it . Every rare times I use it , I get punished .

For those who don't know the notation :
1,2,1,4
2,1,4
df3,2,1,4
CJM ff4

So discuss ...What are your thoughts about it.

I find 2,1,4 to be useful if used very rarely. They may think it's just your 1,2 jabs and start pressing buttons and get caught by your 4. Doesn't work at all against descent turtles, but I think Anna may be one of the harder characters to turtle against. For me it's just another mind game she has that I use very rarely, once a match at tops if at all. The more offensive my opponent is the more likely I may use this move. I also find that 2,1,4 is the only somewhat viable way to use frost needle, the rest just suck.

You can use CJM ff+4 to punish raw tag.
I've seen a high level japanese Anna player in BR do df+3,2,1,4 and CH his opponent trying to ws punish after ducking the 2. It's kinda gimmicky, but all you need is one juggle like that to turn the game around in a tournament setting.

I found a use for df3,2,1,4 even if you would be unsafe after it using the wall for 89dmg.

df2 df3,2 DF~Qcf1 f3,2 ff3,4,3F df3,2,1,4

Even if I prefer stick to

df2 df3,2 DF~qcf1 f3,2 ff3,4,3~b CJM ff3

For 84dmg

The rolling version of frost needle doesn't suck so much. The roll is quick and high crushing and has a mid as well to prevent ducking. Also it's motion and power is more realistic out of the roll then in her strings. It would be much more useful if she had that roll out of her normal stance with the command of f,f+3+4 which is less visible and unpredictable to see coming than having to be in CJM first.

Now her stringed version sucks because her 1,2,1 or 2,1 or df+3,2,1 strings come with a following 4 which frost needle which is a high or a following d+4 which is a low. She has no mid so anybody who knows her is obviously going to duck and evade the high and block or parry the low. This is what is imbalanced about all of her string starting with 1 or 2 and they really need to fix that.

Also as I already mentioned the attack just doesn't even realistically flow with the string. Her blonde bomb would've made much more sense and she should've had this in the first place. It flows much more realistically, it's a mid which keep opponents guessing between a mid and a low and it gives her blonde bomb attack more meaning and usefulness like nina's.
