As I’ve been playing Elena I’ve noticed that against anyone who blocks, it’s not always easy to get Elena’s SA2 in there. The two hit confirms that I’ve spent time with are cr mp and jump in roundhouse. both of which just get blocked or parried (respectively) most of the time.
So what is the best way to get people to eat SA2? I had a couple ideas, maybe you can tell me if I’m barking up the right or wrong tree:
make them so deathly afraid of kara throws that they start whiffing throw on close situations or wake up and then I can get the cr mp into SA2.
stand in front of them at a close-ish range trying to get them to hit a button so I can parry and then do my thing.
In the ballpark? Is there more as well? I’m leaning towards just discarding the jump in RH into SA2 altogether, I can’t think of any way I can make that work that isn’t really obvious.
The only other useful one I’m aware of is the UOH into SA2. If I understand correctly this has to meaty on a crouching opponent to work, right? Which means I can only use it on their wakeup or on a reset?
