I did a search, couldn’t find any threads on this, but somehow I get the feeling that I’ll be flamed to hell and back for posting this. What I need help in, is a general Parry strategy.
I know, Parrying is something you just learn by playing with others, and etc. I can Parry projectiles (most) and I’m working on Parrying Supers and other Specials that I see coming.
But I was hoping I could learn a bit from you guys in when and when not to Parry and general strategies. My main is Alex, followed by Dudley, Remy, and I’m trying to learn Yang and Urien on top of the Shoto’s. So I’ll give you this scenario:
As Alex, I’m facing an aggressive Ibuki player, I mess up, and I’m quickly in the corner. Alex has one good wake up move, the stomp, but it’s easily interrupted by an aggressive player. The Ibuki player doesn’t follow a set pattern as I crouch and block, trying to find an opening, they attack with a flurry of crouching, hopping, and high attacks. Obviously I’m trying to get an opening so I can get them with crouching LP, SK, or MK pushing them away so I can do my thing.
But if I choose to Parry, we go into Rock, Paper, Scissor mode. Generally I guess wrong, and am horribly punished. Then I wonder how someone like Kuroda does it, and I realize it’s one of the reasons why the Japanese are better than Americans…
On that note; any help at all would be appreciated, thanks.
