    You found it! Haha

    @Killey if I jump at someone in GG and anticipate they will try to AA with 6P or something, can I FD that then land and start some pressure? Or are nornals always air unblockable even with FD

    if you FD, you probably will be put into pressure, so try to bait anti airs with double jumps or moves that change your air momentum like air stalls or dive kicks. also

    Yeah I tried it in a match and it didn't go so well. Still a lot of shit I need to learn how to do. The throw OS is #1 on the list right now, if I hit a jump too high up I get tossed every time by ppl who mash throw so I'm assuming this is my go to way of lu ishing bad jumps

    That and learning the Faust matchup. Fuck that character

    You're talking about if you make the opponent stand block a jump in but it's not deep enough to have significant frame advantage, correct? Yes, you'll want to do that too, but also you'll want to note that some moves like multi-hit jump moves will actually have enough frame advantage from that high up.

    Also, vs Faust, yes I can help you with that :D

    genesis 3, a premier smash event, is letting the top 32 smash 4 players and the top 64 melee players (however they decide "top player") skip pools entirely and just get seeded in the quarterfinal bracket

    this seems incredibly ridiculous to me for a number of reasons

    uhhhh i am going to start a fighting game discussion (TM)

    watch this FT10 between hagejin gief and fchamp sim that happened at canada cup after party this year, it's delightful on many levels



    people (except arturo who told it like it is) hating so much on gief for trying to overcome a hard matchup by taking smart risks, like what else is he supposed to do, sit there and lose? i know these guys are drunk and salty because they were losing money but this type of attitude really shows up in lots of other matchups and lots of other games... someone who takes lots of (smart) risks and wins that way is usually seen as a terrible player who gets lucky. why can't people see it for what it is, i don't get it. do people *really* want a million low-risk, low-reward plays to decide every game in every matchup, or what? *eyes SFV suspiciously*

    interesting read, science has again proven something most of us already knew:
    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0747563215301655

    tl;dr

    if someone names themselves urMOMLOL99 and it seems like they're a shitty 16 year old kid out to ruin your day

    chances are they're a 16 year old troll purposefully out to ruin your day

    i mostly wanted a reason to post champ getting bopped

    buuuut i also asked the question because i saw a bunch of people call out snake eyez on twitter for being random and lucky in all his wins, and that when he finally plays an *actual* good player like daigo, he just gets shut down by honest fundamentals which he doesn't have, because everyone who wins with gief (including hagejin) is just riding on the character being good. i was pretty surprised that so many people so much better than me at the videogame still actually don't understand the entire point of how characters work in fighting games

    you might not "get" it midway through... play it until you see the neutral and the pacifist ending then let me know if it changes you mind

    you might need to see the game from the "top down" to get it, if that makes sense

    exactly adam, there is wayyy too little reward for wakeup DP and you get punished twice as hard compared to sf4.

    i knew i was gonna get that type of response but lets have an intelligent discussion tyler, i agree wakeup dp should be punished but not this hard. that's not balanced gameplay. zangief did blow an entire super bar on that punish but he probably gained at least half a bar before using the Super and he didn't use any V-meter.

    this is only going to make option selects that much more important to master
  • TheKaiten7TheKaiten7 Joined: Posts: 1,828
    I think that looks fine man. Smart dps on wake up are totally fine. If amin did a shoryuken because he knew I was going for a karakusa or meaty on his wake up then fine. If he does just cause it's there and he'll eat maybe 150 damage if it's blocked then there's a problem. Plus it's not like every character is going to punish as heavy as geif. You think Ryu is going to get a punish like that even with full everything? (Unless some finds like a full dengeki reset stun situation or something)

    i dont think an invincible move that comes out in 3 frames should really be safe ever. if you guess wrong, GG. the reward is that you can blow up anyone trying to do something to you on wakeup, is that not enough?

    i agree that's an insane punish but its not like a) that's going to happen every time you throw out a bad dp and b)that punish is exclusive to wakeup dps

    He was also fully loaded and I'm willing to bet Cammy has below average stun.

    As is tradition we shall make a new thread.

    I'm gonna try and jump on in that. If you make a new years thread BEFORE 12:00 AM mountain time you will have committed the cardinal sin.
