    I had a good one versus I'm Still Da Daddy

    I've not go the hang of Senpukuga (coward crouch) yet but I'm trying to incorporate it into my game.



    He backed off when I guess he should of gone in. He was waiting to hit me with the CA so I just hung back. Usually they teleport in but I guess he wanted to save his V-Trigger for damage.

    here you go. Nice V Trigger into CA Combo with a nice J HK after Super too

    Match against an R. Mika player. Main reason I wanted to upload it is because the coward crouch is particularly useful against her. c.HP does not work well vs her Drop Kick move, but..

    Nice! Next time I play I plan to make heavy use of coward crouch and the DP slide in anti air situations and experiment. St. MK is a situational button, but I really like it. If you find the right spot it's another good anti air option.

    Just a match with my FANG. I'm finding Karin tough to deal with.

    you seemed to do just fine besides bad spacing and whiffed punishes. besides that it looked fine.
    in my opinion i almost never use his sweep. theres no reason to ever be risky and use it even if you know its going to hit. max range st. mp; karin really cant do much about, and it hits her out of jumping alot of times.

    I noticed Infiltration played Fang in a ranked match, but it wouldn't let me watch the replay. :(

    Edit:

    Here it is:

    I found(?) a pretty impractical combo with Fang while messing around in training mode:

    Have y'all seen this before?

    With the input leniency looks like we have charge partitioning

    I played two good games against a Bison with a 54 game win streak,I didn't play it perfectly but there is some stuff in there for people who feel like it's impossible.

    Using the dash to avoid the head stomp is a really good idea. I keep trying to cr hp it, but sometimes I just trade or even lose.

    How does that work?! Wierd!
  • HaggarmaniaHaggarmania Joined: Posts: 84
    I can't seem to get that option select to work for me, is there some other trick to it? While having counters off, the dash still comes out. I turned on the key display, and when I get the inputs correct, it still doesn't work for me.

    There is a timing to it. If the dash still comes out, you are probably inputting it too quick. It's more about wasting time than getting the timing perfect, you are trying to cancel the lk dash as late as you can. I'm not a technician but I think it's because when you get the crush counter the game freezes for a little bit and gives you more time to cancel, but without that time freeze your lk dash input is outside the cancelable frames of st hp.

    you have to delay u r input for the dash...the time is the same as the crush counter animation...watch the vid ans u will know it

    Is the throw input really necessary in that case. Or its just there to help timing the delay for lk dash?

    no ... he used throw to time it but in a game with a 3 frame buffer timing is not a issue even online so

    The match at 3:18:40 was absolutely disgusting. Your F.A.N.G really knows how to pressure, geez.

    He just seemed like he was doing manny gimmicks and you were letting him get away with some fairly unsafe shit, all while doing your own unsafe shit. The second round he had a few legit setups but like cr.mp into MK trap set (where it hits you) is hella minus (-8) Any time he fireballs in neutral like that just sweep him. He was too close for fireball xx teleport to be legit. Anyway mirrors are hard and you were doing good stuff too, I made the mistake of canceling to lance on block a ton but its bad so don't do it, haha. Thanks for the match videos!

    Had a couple of sets against Alex Valle, forgot to post it.

    Not a great showing of F.A.N.G or anything. Honestly I was too nervous vs Valle, didn't play as solid as I normally do, but just in case anyone can learn something from it. His super risky playstyle with the EX Reversals is intimidating. Wish I had baited more.

    Based on what you wrote here, it sounded like you got completely thrashed, but you were definitely holding your own from what I was seeing.

    Well, I meant it more that I don't think I really got to show what F.A.N.G could do. I'm glad I got some wins against someone on Valle's level, but didn't feel like I got to represent the character well.

    Next time though!

    Also nice match against him as well Josh P!

    Kindevu's CWC 2016 maches

    You can see his gimmicky LP Upball > EX Dash Mixups get him lots of mileage early on in some matches on account of his opponent's ignorance, until he run's into Mordesai (VEGA) who seems to know the week-1 tech and forces the matchup without being able to utilize any damage from the setup



    Kindevu also doing very well against Luffy (Nash) first match because he doesn't know any of FANG's setups but you can see him start to learn learn after the first match...

    Kindevu's FANG is incredibly poor.

    - I don't think I saw him use his crouching mk once, which is terrible because that's arguably FANG's best normal.
    - He NEVER uses his V-Reversal and just lets his V-Meter sit there for most rounds.
    - Throws out random sweeps every other second and only gets away with it because his opponents have no idea how that it's punishable.
    - Basically dumps meter on random EX-slides that don't work when opponents are being vigilant.
    - Again, how the hell did he make it so far without using his cr.mk once?
    - Heavy punches into light slide as a mix up at multiple points. It's a terrible mix up because it's incredibly minus, basically there to confuse opponents.
    - Very repetitive gameplan in general, which is not ideal for a character as tricky as FANG.
    - Constant cr.mp into lp poison ball at pointblank which can potentially be grabbed by vigilant opponents. You should NOT be doing this as often as Kindevu does.
    - Zero coward crouch kicks too.

    I was expecting some high level gameplay, but this was worse than some FANG's I've seen online. If this is all you think FANG is capable of, it's no wonder you think he's the worst character in the game.

    That matchup is really aweful, hopefully some new tech is developed that changes the balance. Pressure strings using the get up kicks seems our only hope.
