This is one aspect of Ken I am completely confused about. How and when am I supposed to use this thing?
I mean I get the general idea; when somebody is pressuring me hard, this is a way to interrupt the block string and reset things. But, with frame advantage of 2 on hit and counterhit, it seems more like a reset to neutral; I’m certainly not going to combo out of this thing if my opponent is paying any kind of attention. If I time it just right, I should be able to start a block string of my own with LK/LP, but there’s not a lot of room for error there.
And really; for a bar of V meter? Ken’s Trigger is pretty good IMHO, so that’s a cost I’m hesitant to pay. Especially for something with no guarantees. Am I just expecting too much? Is this move better than I give it credit for, or are there times when it’s the best option?
Thanks for any advice!
