Hey! Sorry if I’m starting off on the wrong foot (by starting a thread immediately, but that seems like what we’re meant to do - other forums tend to look down on new members doing so), but I’d really like some things cleared up. I’m a big fan of 3s, but in no way am I a “good player”, which is what I want to change by learning here.
Anyway, to get to the point: I see a lot of match vids where the Ibuki player pokes with the sliding MK (df.MK), but I don’t really understand why they do that! I personally feel that while it does give you lots of range, it’s slow and has horrible recovery (with not much hit stun). How do you utilize this move? I mean, wouldn’t a blocked (or even if it hit) sliding kick be punished badly by characters like Chun-Li or Ken?
Thanks in advance.
