So this has been brought up multiple places in different threads but i thought it would be a good idea to have everyone’s input consolidated in one place.
Priority is generally thought of as being composed of a few different things:
a) where the active hit box of move A is in relation to move B
b) the duration of active frames of move A in relation to move B (increasing the chance of move A winning, this also includes meaties where the opponent wakes up into a move)
c) the speed at which a move gets to its active hitboxes
but is there another category E which would be priority alone? meaning assuming that everything else lines up will a move ALWAYS trade? assuming both hit boxes are active and overlapping each other will a trade always occur? i tend to think yes but i am not entirely sure.
i’m going to test some stuff a little later today while looking at some frame data and edit this post with my findings but i’m interested to see what other people already know or think about the subject.
