(Just in case you need it pointed out, simply continuing to block leaves you protected from these counter-hits setups. It should also be noted that mashing out an invincible reversal move, such as a dragon punch, willlll certainly beat these counter-hit setups, but if your opponent just blocks instead, then in most cases you will eat more damage from his punish than you ever would’ve dealt to him with your mash-out.)
Once again, you’ll notice that you’re left playing a silly guessing game against your opponent’s offense, where he stands to gain more than you do. With most characters, clearly it is not in your favour to be placed in this situation. Conversely, with most characters, it is likely in your favour to place your opponent in this situation.
So then, this begs the questions:
How can I avoid being placed in such a situation?
How can I place my opponent in such a situation?
Assuming you’re trying to become a better player, these questions beg answers.
Now the “real” game begins. It’s time to formulate a strategy. Welcome to Street Fighter IV! :mad:
