Yeah, this is probably old news (and/or utterly obvious and “goes without saying”) to 99% of you guys, and if so I apologize for wasting your time.
I myself, however, being the scrublord that I am, did not know this and so, upon learning it, thought I would share it in case it proved helpful to anyone (I know it did for me)
I was having no trouble at all canceling standing moves into RJ… easy as cake… crouching moves, however, were a pain. To the point where I might get it out once in ten attempts even in training mode (and a lot of that is my own poor execution, not that it’s a particularly impossible cancel to do).
Then I was told I could buffer the forward part of the DP motion before the crouch move.
Mind! Blown! It works and after about 2 minutes practicing it, I can pull it off reliably.
If what I said so far hasn’t already made it clear, here’s the breakdown.
What I was trying before:
crouching move and then quickly cancel into RJ… so Down+M.K - Towards - Down - Downtowards+Kick
What I’m doing now:
Towards - Down+M.K - Downtowards+Kick
Like I said, old news to most of you guys, but a real revelation for me so just thought I’d throw it out there and hopefully someone will find it helpful.
