    1. Your next opponent is Ivy, a long-range fighter that controls her opponents with a sword that breaks apart into a whip. Alpha Patroklos is all about close-range, so you’re going to want to close the distance and bum rush Ivy with a series of push attacks.
    2. Ivy is all about complex combination attacks, her close-game is weak, as her choices for quick pokes are very limited. What she wants to do is crouch and use her various whip positions to trap and control your movement from afar where she can handle you, push you back, and hit you with painful throws.
    3. Like all long-range opponents, stay back and wait for her to mess up. Her recovery time for most attacks is terrible, just don’t fall for her traps. Often, it’ll appear her chain is finished, but in actuality she’s merely transitioning from one stance into another and preparing another special move.
    4. Alpha Patroklos has a good low hit game, and his stance will duck beneath high attacks, giving you a quick advantage against Ivy. Use those deadly Dawn and Twilight Haze moves and guard against any simple attacks she’ll use to push you back.
    5. Ivy will try to hurt you when you’re on the ground. To avoid taking more damage, roll first. Rolling left or right is just one way to avoid taking instant damage when on the ground against aggressive AI.
    6. Otherwise, just keep the pressure on Ivy. Alpha Patroklos is particularly good at laying down a series of quick, confounding attacks that Ivy will have trouble guarding against.
