Hi all, been a long time since I posted on these forums after I dropped SF4 when Ultra was released, pretty pumped about SFV being close to release so finally back here!
Anyway, I was looking forward to meaty pressure in SFV after knowing back dashes aren’t invincible anymore and there’s no FADC on wake up so that’s awesome as well, but what about the roll back/back rise option (pressing 2 kick buttons)?
Can someone confirm whether those are punishable in any way? Like why wouldn’t an opponent use this option if it’s not punishable? Sure it puts you a little bit closer to the corner and it’s great that you can’t roll FORWARD out of the corner like SFxTekken (at least that was the case in vanilla SFxTekken, didn’t follow this game lol), but in SF4 backdashes also put you closer to the corner but that didn’t stop people from using it to escape pressure often, even then the back dash had recovery and was punishable.
Any input would be great about this mechanic and how people deal with it.
