My bad! Don’t scold me, I was on the Ex Burning Kick train of thought when I typed that (Considering I was typing about Viper, now I know why it slipped passed). No, EX is not the route. Using LK and MK are the only way to go.
I’m not dumb enough to waste bar on a combo like that.
Edit: Let me elaborate on the use of LP Tanden. Using it after a knock down against a Viper player, meaning you can bait them by walking just outside of range, but doing the Engine early enough sucks them in. If they decide to hold up, you need to time it early enough so you can be done with recovery frames by the time they jump so you can block last minute.
Sorry, but if that’s not clear enough, I’ll just rape some Viper player and show you what I’m talking about.
