I thought it was like “oh my opponent whiffed a crouching fierce let me tag him with some shit”, but it seems more complicated than that. Whenever someone whiffs something and I try to punish it I just end up getting hit with whatever the next button they’re mashing. I can never whiff punish in this game. Like against Chun-Li and her crouching mediums, or Ryu’s sweep and standing medium kick, etc.
So how do I make people stop whiffing shit and getting hit by people whiffing shit?
