Since everyone plays against my Twelve so often at my arcade, most people have stopped sitting around waiting to counter Twelve when he attacks, and now pursue active defense. Usually trying to box Twelve into the corner. Then they try to damage him. Also, aside from IAD ticks and crossups, almost everything bar an air AXE is being parried. I try to start confusion to remain unpredictable, but if my Twelve backs off for a second they try and grab initiative and box him in the corner.
The players in my arcade are starting to get to the point where poke string into Neutral Jump FP or Standing FP doesn’t work anymore and I’ve started changing over to Standing RK. Since they are stopping themselves from instinctively jumping in on Twelve at the end of the poke string.
If anyone has seen SBO2 vid with Chun vs Twelve, thats what things are like for me.
