I don’t know if it’s already common knowledge, but I haven’t seen anything on this in the Hugo boards, and I’ve known it for sometime, so I’m posting.
Its kinda like Honda’s option select ochio in ST, except you can’t store a throw in 3S so timing it is a little harder, and it really only works for beating meaty attacks… most common - aegis.
How to do it - when knocked down, hold down all 3 punch buttons… and put the stick in either the forward or down forward position… depending on if you want to end with high or low blocking, respectively. As you’re waking up input the 720, ending on down back, or back, and release the punches piano style… If you timed the gigas right, you will get the reversal, and grab basically anything but an airborne move… If you’re off on the gigas, all you get is high or low blocking.
Is it game breaking at all? Hardly… Is it game changing it at all? Barely… But it is a good trick to use vs aegis midscreen setups and corner traps… as well as other meaty moves… as long the attack stays grounded.
