Yea… I just wanted to bring back another rolento thread for random strats and usage of his lesser seen moves. So i’ll start it off with a random strategy.
In my opinion Rolento’s best run away move is his wall move (qcb+kick). This isnt because you can fly across the whole screen, although this is part of it, it’s the ability to basically fall anywhere you want and also descend at varying speeds. This allows for a lot of uncertainty.
One mixup you can do is jump off the wall when they are about 1/4-1/3 the screen away from the corner, then as you go over their heads, press down-back and Forward kick. This will leave you on the same side that you jumped from and can often be pretty confusing. Its kind of like a double crossup.
Now, at the same place instead of pressing down-back and Forward, if you just press Back and forward you will cross them up, it looks like you pass them, then you go back towards them, and end up on the opposite end that you jumped from.
This mixup allows you to decide which side of the opponent you want to attack on, and you can decide at the last moment - allowing you to see if the opponent is reacting/has time to react to your jump. If they have thrown a fireball for example they wont be able to do much about this but block.
Of course, all this happens when you could possibly going back into the corner or flying across the screen with j.Roundhouse. If you do this at the wrong time it is the same as trying to get to the other side of the screen and can be punished by basically the same stuff.
The main thing with this move is too watch your opponent and choose the safest course of action. If they jump straight up/back with sagat/blanka you may lose a lot of life from a j.Fierce.
Anyway… post up your random strats and usage of obscure moves.
