For the most part yea…like I know when to expect it. For example if I throw a LOV and dash in and I see their char doing the parry motion, I know it’s pretty much safe to do it. It’s a little hard to do it on reaction, since you have to be quick, but I’m becoming a little bit better at it. An easier and safer way to do it is to do cr. lp twice, that’s a lot safer and you can easily bust out an SAII if the opponent gets hit by the lp…I obviously know this but don’t employ it…go figure.
Also, I’d like to clarify that on the Elena matches I kept trying to parry the double sweep things he kept doing, I could have easily blocked them, but I was trying to practice the parrying timing just right…obviously failing miserably. I knew they wre coming since their his favorite attack at wake up, so I figure I’d give parrying them a try, since I don’t play elena’s that often.
Also, I was talking to Dagger_G who asked me why I didn’t do the obviously powerful mid air Fierce xx flash kick when opponent is in the air. I’m trying some new stuff out…for example, mid air fierce the opponent, land and do a sonic boom that will hit them while they’re in the air, dash forward to be behind them as they land and Kara grab…it works 99% of the time (unless they counter). If you’re good you can dash and then do cr lk xx SAII if your reaction is quick enough.
