Ok today I was reading a topic about option-select normals into chains and I stared at this:
" you can input os command also during chain normals: while u chain c.lp pres c.lp+c.hk to option
selecting the sweep and catch a backdash…"
then the article continues explaining that this thing works more or less because while u are chaining c.lp if the foe blocks then the game engine recognise that c.hk it was pressed too early to LINK but if the foe backdash then the c.hk has priority over c.lp (for reach advantage I think) and LINK. overriding the c.lp and catching the backdash
This make me think about my conception of blockstring or hitconfirm and how I am executing it atm.
I use akuma and one of his hitconfirm is c.lp , c.lp > c.mp xx l.k tatsu ("," chain “>” link “xx” cancel)
to perform this combo I learned to TIME every input in a sort of rhythm to train my muscle memory and my ears with the click of the fightstick buttons:
so if i want to perform it I do something like c.lp “ww” c.lp “wwww” c.mp “ii” tatsu
where “w” stands for wait while “i” stand for immediatly press or mash or use no brain nor rhythm and every time i want to pull of the combo it doesn’t matter where i am i know that in my brain the rhythm is
ww - wwww - ii and will work (90% of the time) ( or something that to my ears sound like click-click pause clickclick)
but the new statement on OS is telling me that in order to make the OS work i have to change my rhythm into
iiiiiiiiiii(OS)iiiiiiiiiiiiii - wwww - xx (clickclickclickclick-click-clickclickclickclick pause clickclick)
where during the first iiiii I am MASHING c.lp and c.lp + c.hk and i have to start “thinking” about rhythm only when I want to link the c.mp (supposing the foe didn’t backdash and os was useless)
this sounds to me EXTREMELY difficult and watching some pros replay i didn’t see they mash (or chain) a couple of jab and then “decelerate” rithm suddenly to LINK to another normal to cancel in a combo ender… so I am a little bit concerned about this
what do you think about?
am I crazy or does it have any sense to you?
