Match up thread: Claw

#1

any tips or advice would be great, hes sooooo annoying.

how do i punish:

he rolling attack? after you block it

his super? do you just hold the opposite direction?


#2

Crimson Flash is unsafe on block (-6, -7, and -8 for lk, mk, and hk respectively). Your punish options just come down to distance, but pp (passion press (f/b.mp)) should usually work. The EX version is -2, so you should be able to take your turn back with s/c.lp.

Edit: a good claw player won’t give you this opportunity often (if at all).


#3

we already went over him in the matchup thread, even his super isn’t reversal so knock him down and u win.

Now something I’m curious about:


#4

It would make sense that you can V-reversal his CA as Mika is strike and projectile invulnerable for the first 28 frames of her V-reversal. A decent claw player isn’t going to do his CA in this kind of situation though.


#5

Huh, TIL…


#6

You can V skill his super =) enough said. also alpha counter his rolls and get a free knock down on his ass. You can punish his m and H rolls with s. MP to combo or the faster option S.lk hell you can command grab his Ex if you scout it.
