Guide by Nage explains how he fights Raven in Guilty Gear -Revelator-

One of Japan's strongest Xrd players has written out his thoughts on how he fights Raven in the most recent entry of the Guilty Gear Xrd series.

Nage breaks his guide into several points, devoting much of the space to explain his thought process when Raven has knocked the opponent down or how to fight the character at the mid-range. Although Nage only discusses the fight in terms of his character, Faust, a lot of the information can be applied to many characters in -Revelator-.

GreatFernMan has translated Nage's blog and posted it on Evernote. Nage admits with location testing for Guity Gear Xrd Rev 2 currently going on his guide may soon become outdated, but he felt he would explain his choices in the matchup anyway.
