I ALWAYS get beaten out by a lockdown assist from one side and an attack (mostly but not always after a teleport) from the other. An example of this would be Ammy’s cold-star assist, then teleport to the other side with Wesker or Virgil and attack. Or Iron Fist flying kick assist and wolverine berserker slash.
My problem is, which direction to block and when. Obviously I’ll start guarding away from the Ammy assist (left, if i’m facing right), but when I see the teleport I’m still blocking away from Ammy (towards the point character) however i’m still blocking the cold star. However once the point character starts attacking i seem to get blown up. Sometimes on reaction, I block right before the point character starts attacking but still get blown up and probably lose that character.
My question is, when do I change the direction of my guard to block this strategy 100% of the time? If I start guarding towards the assist as soon as the teleport starts, won’t I start getting hit by the assist?
All this being said is obviously irrespective of high/low mixups.
Also, any tips on attacks that appear to hit from both sides at once, such as the cross-up Berserker Slash, flying kick combination mentioned above.
