I’ve been watching a few youtube vids here and there, and apparently when the opponent jumps behind you and lands an attack, that’s called a crossup. If it’s not, it’s still what I’m asking about.
I’ve been playing on the 360 net play and enjoying it. I’m learning a lot from other people and the games are good. I’ve noticed there’s this trick that I can’t do where the opponent jumps jjjuuuust right and can land an attack that counts as coming from the other direction. I figure I have to block towards them and sometimes that works. Other times, blocking away from them works. But it’s not consistent, even though it appears to be similar (obviously it’s not, because the way to block is not).
Can someone explain how to handle these? How can you tell what side the attack will be considered as coming from?
