This is my first post- so ‘hi’ everyone!
I’ve read in more than one place that a meaty command grab (non-ex) beats Zangief’s SPD and Lariet so I thought I’d try it.
I’ve also read that after TT, Dash > MK roll gives +5 frame advantage. TT has 5 frames of start up so I reason that if I do TT > Dash > MK roll > TT with frame perfect timing then I’ll beat Zangief’s SPD or Lariet.
I went into training and recorded Zangief to do reversal SPDs.
Result? I beat is occasionally (maybe 1/3 - 1/4 times)
I figure this it might be guaranteed but my execution is not perfect so I tried another test.
I did COD (with f + p > f +p) immediatly into jump forward, then into TT while Zangief does reversal SPDs.
Now this result really confused me. Again it worked sometimes. I find this odd because my exection should be exactly the same (to the frame) %95 of the time; the jump must come out immediately after COD since I’m holding u/f and the TT should come out the moment I land since there is a huge input window for the TT upon landing- just like a reversal. This second point is illustrated by doing jump, then just before landing doing TT. You’ll see a jumping attack come out before landing then a TT come out upon landing.
So what gives- it looks like it’s random whether the TT beats SPD on wake up.
Are there any players who can consistently beat an reversal SPDs or reversal Lariest with a meaty TT on wakeup? Do you have any vids to show that? Any tips for landing it?
