I’ve been running into this problem against Sagat’s lately. If I’m using Abel and I manage to jump-in without being AA’d they block my medium kick and I would start a blockstring. But now after blocking my jumping medium kick I get a reversal tiger uppercut in my face before I can hit a c.lk.
There’s this one guy I play alot who also uses sagat who i can’t crossup. After knocking him down (with Abel) I start my usual shenanigans and before my jumping medium kick even lands BAM! I know there are safe jumps so this must be a timing problem on my part. Can’t tell if I doing it too early or too late. Even when I switch up the timing the best I’ll get is one of those resets when you can tell they tried to do something but it didn’t work.
So the problems I think it could be with the regular jump-ins:
- Me hitting medium kick too early. Sagat is tall making his hitbox larger so maybe he has time to recover beofre my c.lk comes out.
- Jump-in medium kick -> c.lk not being a true block string or at least not one that works on sagat.
- I’m online.
With the cross-ups i have no idea what i’m dong wrong.
