Let’s use this thread to answer our own problems. If something has you frustrated, if you discover something random, if you find something useful, if whatever in training, post it in here. That includes questions on how to use the training room properly (i.e. how do I make the dummy do this so I can test something).
So recently I’ve been intrigued by all these characters finding unblockables on Yun and Yang and most every character seems to have unblockables.
I want to find ours. I know about the one off of backthrow but there has to be more.
Supposedly if you can find a way to get a character to block an attack both ways you are pretty close to finding an unblockable.
I’ve found one where if you forward throw Yun, then double dash forward and quickly step back and then jump with mk Yun can block both ways. I need to find a way to get that timing consistently if possible and then try it out on the rest of the cast as well to see if it produces an unblockable on anyone.
Secondly, I’m greatly annoyed by Rose and Guy and their backdashes after chip from spiral and shoulder.
In 2012 you should be able to reversal MP palm (super LP palm) a rose backdash. It is obviously not reactable but more of a read. It’s something you have at your disposal should you need a way to make them think twice.
In training, I was able to EX palm into HK tatsu Guy’s backdash off a shoulder, which is interesting because st.HP XX ex palm > HK tatsu doesn’t work on him. Again, this is more of a read tool to punish. Can’t do it on reaction. Just letting you know that he can’t backdash without risk, however little it is. I may have just timed the backdash wrong but please verify.
