LOL. I’m just giving you guys a hard time I guess. All I know is I do it and it works. Wish I knew more about the technicalities about Twelve to tell you specifically why it works or why I’m not really explaining what you should be doing to make it work. It works for me though. Sadly…this is probably the most interesting the Twelve forum has gotten in a while.
I’ll have you come over my house one day or you can come to Evo and watch me do it during casuals in person. Maybe I can youtube my hands even, lol.
Then again…I’m not really talking so much about confirming the command as I am just doing the command when I want it done. I’ll admit…the confirm itself is a bit tough and sometimes I’ll go for it and blow the super on accident even when the person is blocking. I’ll sometimes just bank on the opponent not low blocking or messing up a parry and go for it. All I’m saying is that with that motion that I listed…if you were to put me in training mode and ask me to do the combo successfully 10 times in a row…I would get it 10 times in a row. I’m just decent enough at confirming it where if I see the second hit connect in a situation where I know it’ll connect (like to counter another poke or punish a special/super) it’s going to come out and connect. I do mess it up but I’ve gotten it down to a point where it’s not necessarily a hassle to at least combo together. Confirming it takes a bit of work but I guess after playing enough CVS2 where people have to link together stuff that is probably even tougher…it’s not so bad for me.
I guess what makes confirming easier for me in 3rd Strike is that unless your opponent is really thinking on a higher level than you are…whenever you get a parry against most attacks you’re going to have an opponunity to get an attack in. Most of the time I go for the combo is after a successful parry any ways. So it’s basically just get a parry…mash in combo to super and I get damage. I’m good enough at doing the combo itself that there’s not so much a need to confirm it since if I successfully get a parry it’s pretty much guaranteed any ways. Looking to confirm it just by catching someone not blocking low is a bit tougher and I can’t say that I’m real successful doing that but I can do it if I’m really looking to do that. Most of the time though I just look for a parry after IAD mix ups and if I get a succesful one or catch the opponent in a trip guard situation…I just run the command it and it comes out.
