I wanted to know if the following mix-up has been detailed on these forums or the web already. I’m going to explain it below but if it is already known i apologise for wasting time. Just wanted to share this since I was excited when i did this by accident.
This seems a bit character specific depending on how fat the opponent is. I got it to work nicely on Ryu.
When in the corner launch Ryu (or other average size characters i guess) with c.HP, then when they are just lowering to around the height of Abel’s head do a** f.MK canceled into a dash** (do not hold ‘down’ after the dash). Time the step kick to be early enough and Abel will wind up standing behind the opponent just before they land.
Interestingly if you do the same thing but hold ‘down’ to make Abel duck after the dash, he will swivel 180 degrees while crouching (as if he has switched sides so he is behind the opponent) but just before the opponent lands he will swivel again and be on the same side he started.
I think this is great since its an alternate way into a ‘left-or-right’ corner reset without commonplace rolling.
If you do this on larger characters, (I tested this on an opposing Abel dummy) you will always end up on the same side you started on. However, since the opponent is bigger you can afford to do the f.mk cancelled into dash earlier. This will give you time to do a normal forward dash after the first step kick dash, which will leave you behind the opponent. Due to Abel’s fast dash the opponent may have a hard time reacting to the second dash in order to block correctly.
So did I find a new reset, or has this been kicking about for ages already?
