actually i believe the explanation to this is that you HAVE to do a normal to get a special to come out.
try using lk, i have more success with that.
if anyone else has played the previous vs games, you would know that when you are in income, (not regular jump mode, although the blcking properties are) that you have to do either a normal OR block to do a special or super.
try mashing lk and when u see his leg out quickly cancel into fly.
you’ll notice, if you block a gb, then tempest, then quickly DHC, it will allow you to do that smoothly. same thing with the normals. try to do a normal, then super, then DHC. but if you dont do anything, the special move you tried to do will come out as a normal.
and J360 share ur ways of the escapes with us =]. what normal do you use? because her unblockable hitbox is soo HUGE and most of her normals wont allow her to have enough time to use a special…
