I got my first rage quit today and it felt awesome (maybe after the 5th or 6th it would suck but the 1st is very pleasing)
after i dominated his fei long with my gief.
he decided to go gief. i went to balrog
either hes a scrub or was just trying to mock me because he lariat spammed.
so after having expirienced the lariat spam i learned from a quick 3 round match how to beat it safely. if geif is approaching you while using the lariat you can hit him with c.hk as the lariat is ending (only when its ending, since it beats c.hk) and you can even say the same for heatbutt. wait until the animation is ending. and as far as im concerned both headbutt and lariat trade off so not a big loss if you headbutt too early.
if he’s turtling, waiting for you to dash in so he can stuff it with the lariat, (which is more common) you can do a L.dash upper that wont reach him so it forces it out. then go into the c.hk
i just want to know what are some things you guys do to overcome the lariat spam.
