Um, you basically listed what I did with the addition of parry and just defend. If you are being knocked down and you just randomly wake up with something without basing it on what you think the person standing above you is going to do then you need to re-think what you are doing. The person standing up doesnt do something based on what he thinks you are goin gto do, he makes you think he is going to do something and then does the counter to it. IE, throw set up, but then get a counter hit short.
and RC’d invincible move? RCing makes ALL moves invincible for a period of time.
And btw, I did list invincible move, this covers supers, dragon punches, hop back moves, and RC’s.
Again, if you are like “hmmm, im going to wake up with an rc” and dont even think what they are doing… it makes no sense. You RC because you have no option (ie no super and no life) and you think they are sticking out a poke. Why do you think they are sticking out a poke? Perhaps they did the same set up before, or perhaps their distancing makes you believe that. You might be right, or you might be wrong, it doesnt mean you always lose the wake up mind game if you get knocked down, it means if you’re knocked down you can play NO mindgames.
Blocking and alpha countering/counter roll? if they jab you? then you wasted a meter, if you try to do it on the next one? What if they are tick throwing you?
Stick out a normal move? Why would you do this? Because they let you get up at a safe distance and didnt stick out a meaty? How do you know they didnt time it so you think they let you up, so they can counter hit you?
I listed 3 basic options because that’s pretty much what you are left with, the mind game sand bait/punishing will lead to similar outcomes… whether you throw a dragon punch, super, or unsafe RC… you still get punished the same, and if they “made you” do it then they are still blocking…
You make the wake up game sound like a game of Rock Paper Scissors where you throw out a move and look at the outcome. The wake up is by no means a 50/50 game. Neither is it 100/0 game. But it is definately in the favour of the person standing.
