I cannot agree more, and after all vortex is all about safe options to beat opponents’ weapons couple with OS to cover every possible circumstance. When we force our way in with that, we know that they are eventually going to block, and that’s when we can risk more with the command grab.
But my point is, a good DeeJay with great knowledge of the matchup (or you know, just able to recognize a safejump), why should stop doing that?
Are we really killing characters (I mean, not easily) if all we can do is bait a reversal or simply get our D+MK safejump blocked and do what, counterhit and throw pressure?
Honestly, I’ll just call that some kind of castrated vortex (or free ground pressure), which a solid player can caintain/handle quite easily.
