Last night in the arcade, I was playing my N-Groove Hibiki against what I think was an A-Blanka or Cammy, I can’t quite remember.
They activated, missed their string, and then I proceeded to counter out of it while they were still in CC mode. They had either 0 life or next to it.
Out came the counter, and we traded hits. The thing that I insinctively noticed immediately is that I KOed the other guy with a counter attack. I am 100% sure that this was the case.
My theory on this: Unless it was a character-specific bug (on my Hibiki or their character), you might be able to kill someone who is in CC mode in A-Groove with a Counter Attack.
I tried to verify this at home with the GameCube version, but I couldn’t duplicate it, probably because it isn’t arcade perfect. Can we get someone with a Dreamcast to double check this for me?
This could potentially be a huge development and something for A-Groove players to worry about if it turns out to be true.
Oh, P.S., My website, Finest KO (http://www.finestko.com) will soon have up an article detailing all the character’s Counter Attacks, including which ones juggle or combo, general AC strategy, and the frame data for everyone, as soon as my bible gets here. Just a heads up on that for you.
