The Oro forums have been dead for a while ever since me and huntersfl finished our silly banter, ahh how i miss it.
Anyway, something different we can hopefully discuss, thats tengu stone activated without the usual chicken combo launch. I have honestly never taken this idea seriously, I always find myself sitting on a full guage waiting for a parry or an opening, but having seen all the dirty/thanatos vids again, Ive noticed they do it a LOT. Oh, and btw im not talking about just throw into corner then activate, i mean you do about half screen distance away while the opponent is still standing.
Does anybody here use it frequently? If so:
a)Against which chars?
b)Do you cancel it off a fireball or something (Are things like cr.fp xx tengu, uppercut xx tengu, cr.mk xx tengu safe when BLOCKED?)
c)Do you do it only when theyre in the corner?
d)If you’ve done it from a fair distance away, how do approach the opponent quickly and safely?? (Dashing could mean you eat an ex fireball, cr.mk, a lot of stuff if you move predictably.). I was thinking something like a whiff far mk or mp in order to use the stones as a “shield”, followed by an immediate dash would be a good idea, perhaps.
e)Is there any decent reason to use EX tengu stone rather than normal tengu? (Other than the obvious scenario in which they’re within chip damage of being KO’ed)
f)Any other issues I may have missed?
I was thinking of changing the way I play Oro with Tengu to that of a more Nitto-yun style, by being a prick and building meter, then activating super as soon as i can and try and make the most of it - If it works, great, if it doesnt, oh well go build meter again. How does that sound?
