Been playing fighters for half a year or so and only recently started looking (seriously) into frame data.
When first learning about links in Super, it was my understanding that a link was “inputting the next move as soon as the first finishes”. Now I’m curious as to how this works as pertaining to frames. Does the first move have to have an advantage on block/hit more than or equal to the second move’s startup frames?
I would think the advantage would have to be more, giving the character at least 1 frame to actually link, but when looking at SRK’s Ryu frame data, his c.MP is +5 on hit and his c.MK has a 5 frame startup. Why do these link?
Sorry for the long-winded, n00b question m(._.)m
