Seriously, people are being smartasses but that just proves that they dont really understand the difference between things. When you have to learn to rc an uppercut, the difference between t, d, dt and t, d, dt, t becomes pretty apparent.
Or say Vice’s grab, you want to rc that, it’s a great rc for her. Well if you go by the prevalent belief that it is half circle forward and punch, you will miss it alot more often than if you actually know the motion for her grab ends at down-towards(b, db, d, dt, punch). People make fun but i’d daresay that 50 percent of the people on srk don’t know the precise dp motion so this thread is actually helpful.
More precision is always good, I know that when I realized that the motion for a shinkuu hadouken was different from the motion for a shoryureppa my ryu combos became 100 percent whereas before they were only at about 80. People cant be afraid to ask questions like that or else they never learn anything from this place and this site fails to serve, imo, it’s only real purpose.
