So I’m 6 months into SF4: AE 2012, my first serious fighting game. I constantly find myself against people who will mash 3 frame jabs in every situation: wake up, during my block strings, just general gameplay and I’m unsure of what to do. Sometimes they just mash DP during my block strings, and sometimes I recover, but they’re too far for me to do a viable punish (ex. ken light punch shoryu). It seems like shotos have a get out of jail free card and I find this frustrating to deal with, especially since I play a character who has no 3 frame normals so I can’t exactly trade with these mashers, or its usually in their favor. Do frame traps help this situation? Because sometimes I still get interrupted or maybe Reversal DP’ed or SPD’ed through my frametraps/ blockstrings. Is that just because I mistimed it?
I use Juri
