Hey all, so I’ve been playing ogre pretty much nonstop since launch. And after playing 3 other ogre’s online, I’m sick of hunting hawk and don’t think its that great (although its a fantastic noob destroyer).
It can be ducked, dodged, and abused, especially by faster smaller characters. But what else does ogre have for footsies? I was having a very difficult time trying to play intelligently (ie not spamming jump and hawk). His footsies post hawk seemed to be pretty mediocre before- :hk:/:hp: are super slow, and his c.:mk: isnt anything special.
Except standing jab.
After a lot of lab time, I’m having huge success with his :lp::lp::mp: + :lp::mp::mp: string. the 2x:lp: string is insanely fast and catches almost everyone, and the 2x:mp: ender can be cadc-ed into close range pressure. Once people are trained to react to the two, you can then start catching whiffs with hawk, owl hunt, or his command grab (I had a hard time landing this before). I can finally walk forward without having to spam hawk, something I was having a hard time with before.
Curious if you guys have as much success with this as I am having.
edit: :lp::mp::mp: can also be canceled into ex indigo punch for pretty big damage; a move I had no use for before.
