I know the title is somewhat of a paradox. How can taunting ever result in a blunder?
I had one today I just had to laugh at, it was so Dan like. Round 3, I got my opponent dizzied, we both had minimal health left, I have a maxed out Ultra. Game over right? Wrong.
Of course I taunt, then go for the ultra, but he recovered in time to block ( turbo button!), and then he punished and won. How embarrassing.
So post any stories where taunting wasn’t such a good idea.
Sometimes it seems like taunting decreases my skill level with every taunt. Any time I jump out dominating a round and taunt my ass off, I swear they almost always come back. I think its a subconcious thing, once you taunt you gotta back it up, and it puts pressure on you. It goes both ways, Ive had players that get the jump on me at the beginning taunt at every opportunity, then I end up beating them.
