Crossover Counters, whatever you want to call them – Forward+Assist during blockstun. I’ve occasionally had trouble doing these in actual matches, and I finally sat down in training mode to mess with them. I absolutely cannot get the input to be recognized 100% of the time.
Holding forward first vs. pressing forward at the same time as the assist button doesn’t seem to make a big difference. However, the game seems to have real trouble recognizing quick button presses. I’ve even had double tapping fail. Holding the button definitely works better, and sometimes I feel the alpha counter coming out a little delayed when I do that, as if the game didn’t recognize it for a few frames. Then there are times that I’m holding forward+assist for an entire beam super, only to get a regular tag after the super is over.
I can’t make sense of it. Has anyone else had trouble with these? I think every method I tried failed at some point. Even at their worst, alpha counters still seem to work 80-90% of the time, but it’s incredibly annoying when they don’t work. Especially when they can lead to big combos.
If anyone’s curious, I was mostly testing on the training stage against Ryu’s super, swapping between Wesker and Sentinel. 360 version.
