Yeah I’m on PSN @ BrahmaDDT. I’ve been getting better at the game. I’m still kind of ass, but at least I realize what is going on a lot better than I did.
Just trying to stay basic mostly. A lot of standing P into frame traps/step catch. Trying to play safe in close with P_2P_6P_4P. 4P+K+G is a sabaki that eats jabs and most 6P type elbows up to I think 2 hits. It activates in 1-2 frames so you can throw it out vs people that try to jab check your safe moves. HCF+P also sabakis 1 hit of mid/high punch/elbow up to I think 15 dmg, and is active on frame 1.
4P+K gets a lot of use from me. I hit confirm it into the 2nd hit or on block I delay it for people who get antsy or go into throw_4P.
I throw too much. Bad habit from SC. Taka’s throw game is too good though. HCF_HCB both do hella damage. You can RO with HCF_66_catch throw (catch throw and release is pretty lulz) and back RO with 4 or FC46.
4B+K is a hella good move in oki. Hits grounded, and +1 if they block it. Once they start teching you can usually force them to block 2_8 K+G which gives you a free P+K into combo or 66P for RO. Still not sure how to deal with wakeup kicks other than to block or backdash 33P+K. I’ve had 1P+K and 3K both hit them out of wakeup kicks but I haven’t messed around with it enough.
Speaking of 1P+K, it’s a hella good tech crouch to interrupt P strings. On hit if they don’t tech you can land 2P+KP_3P+K_K. Tech you can set up your 2_8K+G.
Still trying to find my approaches and keepout stuff. P_P+K_6P_3K are decent GTFO. They all stuff things pretty well if you stick them out on an opponent trying to come in. 3P+K works pretty well too. It’s not a TC like I originally thought though.
On approach I’ve been trying K_4KP_6K stuff_66P. But nothing seems to outshine the others. 6K has nice range and 6KP is NC with the option to go into stance or delay the 3rd hit. 2nd hit is high though. 4KP is NC with a sideturn on hit, but again it’s high on the 2nd hit. Semi- hit confirmable as long as you don’t delay too long. 3K is alright, gets you a knockdown. K is ok, gives you +1 on hit, and stuns backdashers. 66P is pretty good at i14 and some reach, with the optional delay PP after. 2K has pretty great range, but you’re at disadvantage on block. I need to mess with HCF+P and 43P more. K+GP too. All are pretty sick.
Been trying to use stance. Some great tools but you have to work to get people to get hit by them. Off of 6KP_6P+K_PP block or hit they can pretty much duck jab you out of every stance option except 2_8P+K+G, which leaves you at like -1/2 if they 2P. Stance I’ve found to be pretty much only useful off of 4P and 4PP since it leaves you at a slight advantage, and stance P+K beats duck jabs, and stance K beats duck jabs off of 4PP. So maybe only useful against noobs and to use raw stance to duck highs. As far as the stance options, P is a 360 swipe that gives a combo on hit. P+K is the fastest option and a mid, K is a TC low that gives +f and combo on CH (1PP into whatev). 4P+K+G does a backstep that goes into a punch/elbow sabaki, 2_8P+K+G goes into a huge SS. P+K+G is a high clap that gives a free P+K on block (Ganryu f+2~1+2).
Trying to make some use from catch throw. The throw by itself is alright. Better range than most throws, which catches a lot of people off guard. Decent damage on the back throw from it and the front throw you can get 1PP, 6KK combo. BT P+K is a mid hit AT that shifts into catch throw also.
That’s all I got for now. Still trying to find how to beat wakeup kicks. Also trying to figure out the wall combo system. I know that in most cases if I hit a wall mid combo I can only land 6KK. If I land a big wall splat like 46P, I can get something like 43P~P+K+G~P+K, 6P+KP for pretty big damage.
