The only way I can find to land these without a jump-in and churning the butter like it’s going out of style is to do a heavy ground attack that on block or hit will leave me at a disadvantage, then slowly and carefully put in the motion, hitting the upper part of the circle first in case I don’t do it quickly enough. This means I get hit while doing it, though, but it’s the only way I can do it on the ground.
Someone like Zangief can somehow do Banishing Flat into an SPD, which I’ve done once in the 18 or so years I’ve been playing fighting games. I don’t get how people walk up and do a 360 grab with Hugo, or how they tick into it with a jab when jab doesn’t leave a long enough window to do the motion and actually complete the throw.
What do I do?
