So I have recently learned that I may tick throw too much. I won’t name names, as I do not take insult.
They explained that Old School was avoiding throws if you could, and not ticking into throws at all. They play like this due to habit it appears. In fact what I have noticed fighting them, is that they have an emphasis on pokes and solid spacing and zoning.
New School is the tick throw, win win win, grab grab grab. Maybe not that much, but for the most part there are quite a few people that perscribe to strategies like this.
My question to the community is should we respect the old ways, or conform to the new ways. Perhaps a middle ground?
I’ve figured out that people really don’t like getting throw looped, which I know didn’t even exist before ST(could honda, sim, and boxer do it though? Unexplored?) just as throw reducing didn’t either. However, you have to admit it is a very solid, reliable tool. Just as tick throwing can be a very solid, reliable tool.
I’m hoping to get some SOUND OPINIONS, not “lulz they can just counter” or “fuck tick throwers they cheat”. I want to hear details about how you feel about tick throwing, being tick thrown, and whether you perscribe to it or not. As well as WHY you feel/believe that way.
