He still loses to the brothers.

And the only thing that's changed is he had MMM, which are avoidable.

It's very hard for Stream to launch missiles and advance offensively.

demeteloaf manages to do it just fine. A Stream that learns how to control those things with respect to his own movement is deadly.

The fixing of of buffering bugs alone is enough to make me love Stream. MMM also isn't his only change, although it's definitely the biggest. Cancelling spooby pls and multiple flamebaits are both nice additions that give him a little more leeway.
MMM can also be pretty effective if you time them well offensively, and they're godlike for holding the line.
I agree that he loses to the brothers, but it's not a terrible matchup.

I expect MMM to get more round wins than O.Baz's KF per activation. Time to learn Stream???

Nah, they're easy enough to avoid. If anything, they will force the opponent into a bad position to get hit by Stream's kick.

Got a question for all you Stream experts out there.
Sometimes after a flamebait, if I choose not to kick after using it, Stream will jump into the air immediately upon landing without any inputs.
This has been the cause of a few horrendous deaths in situations where I just want to stand still, and would be less of a problem if it happened consistently, but I haven't been able to find the root cause, and as far as I can tell, it's random.
Dying to this is super frustrating, does anybody know what makes it happen?

EDIT: Upon further play, it seems it does sometimes happen if I kick after the flamebait, but only if I go into the falling animation.

If Stream gets a setup that nets 1 kill and has any KF left over, and it's *never* a headshot, he's already doing better than O. Baz.

I think by O. Baz, we might be talking 1.0, in which case more than 1 is certainly reasonable for some matchups.

Maximum was three against Kick and Kung. If Stream can do more than three, consistently, per kf on Kung then his kf has more sheer killing power than Old baz's (by a long shot)

Sorry, I was referring to 1.1 Baz.
