I’ve been hearing a lot about people on pad / old hit boxes being able to block both ways using inputs for left and right at the same time, and I’ve also heard that it’s legal at evo because the rule is so hard to enforce.
Some players have been reported to have gotten buttons on their stick wired to give a left and right input at the same time, basically giving them a mortal kombat block button that negates the risk of cross ups.
I even heard reports that the player who won revelations online was using said tactic. If this is legal at Evo, and we see players placing using this technique, how does it stand for the future of the game? Will players have to get a modded stick with a block button to keep up with the meta game? Will this be something capcom addresses and patches out? This needs to be brought to Capcom’s attention if it hasn’t already, because it has the potential to ruin Marvel.
And if this does remain in the game and stays legal, how do you feel about using this technique? Should players be frowned on for using a technique that’s tournament legal and only could improve their win record? Or does it go against general ethics?
