I’ve been playing quite a bit of SNES SSF2 online lately, but I’ve been frustrated by not being able to do reversals upon landing on my feet. For example, after being hit by an air-to-air normal move. I can reverse tick throws and do wakeup reversals just fine, but I couldn’t do “reset” reversals at all. This caused me to eat a lot of big meaty combos that I could see coming and wanted to DP.
After experimenting with the arcade versions as all as SNES SSF2, I found out the following:
- In SSF2, whether arcade or SNES, you can’t reversal after landing on your feet.
- In ST, you can reversal after landing on your feet, even if you’re an O-character.
Now I know that blocking or throwing are my only options in this situation on SNES. This is probably old news to everyone but me.
