apologies for the title, but i’m kinda irritated, it’s made me think i’ve been spazzing when dash cancelling, when it’s really something with lenient inputs messing with my head.
as i’m sure everyone knows, if you hold towards the opponent, then hold mp+mk, you only need to press forward once more to dash out of the focus charge.
what i mean by this: hold f+mp+mk, then tap forward again, voilla, dash cancel. you can also dash the usual (f x 2) way and you’ll still dash out of course.
however! if you are using Chun Li and use the ‘old fashioned’ way you will get a fucking goddamned double dash, even though you technically only input 3 forwards. it’s bullshit, and would explain why i often dash right into fireballs when trying to do quick successive absorbs.
i tested this with 4 different dudes, Chun, Guy, Ryu and Haggar, and this only happened with Chun.
hold towards, then hold mp+mk, then dash forwards. chun will double dash even though you’ve only input 3 forwards.
so does anyone have any theories why this occurs? i thought that maybe it was the fact her dash is so quick, but i haven’t heard of this before.
