I’m not saying it gets dropped. nothing’s 100% but even then, plenty of the top players, and others, GET it in pressure situations too. mixup, hyo, j360, schmidt (more during endgame), etc.
point was, you said it was “nice to know” & “not critical to winning” which is false IMO. people would get a lot more wins than they instead of doin’ them resets constantly…especially against better opponents. and of course near midgame/endgame it’s definitely critical.
ROM to 40 > unmashable does more than 5 fierce…and then you can always DHC for the kill and keep the offensive even if not IM. yes mags is out…but there are plenty of ways to get him right back in though it’s usually not necessary (ROM to corner, corner HGxxMT, DHC Hail, addfFP, tag)
you’re still in a bigger advantage doing a full ROM, maybe 1 to 2 resets AT MOST, ROMing again, unmashable. while it does involves resets, ROM is still the major aspect and is more than just “nice to know”.
you have just as much a chance to screw up the FS reset, and then still the chance for it to be stopped/blocked/countered into you getting hit.
I would say my argument against “nice to know” “not critical” is for all mag teams. I’m not totally dissing resets, but sometimes only 1 is needed if any. just step up that execution.
like I said, the people I play with started doing the same (especially midgame to endgame), not only obviously to kill me better, but because they know that if they don’t kill and I hit them, I WILL ROM them to death, no resets (well, 1, if any, and always in corner with ways to get them if it doesn’t work), no chance for escape, and inescapable GB in the corner, ROM to death next to characters (demon hyo knows what’s up!)
