Full disclosure. I am a scrub. Doomed to forever walk the plains of high super bronze - low ultra bronze hell. With that said, I really don’t see the point of the lk-mk target combo or the b-mk command normal for that matter.
Lp-mp has better range, the similar frame data as far as I know, and it seems easier to special cancel than the lk mk combo, although that might just be me. B- mk has similar if not identical startup to st-mp and mk has better range.
Literally the only use I can think of for it is lk-mk-lp xx lk SS.and even then, why not just do Lp-mp xx hk SS?
Someone enlighten a scrub?
