Hey guys, I know there was a thread similar to this a while back, but for the life of me, I can’t find it. This time around though, I have a pretty specific question. If your opponent goes for a crossup, and you “know” at some point he’s going to go for a throw, how do you go about teching their throw if they do it at an unexpected time? There seems to be 2 methods:
1.) Crouch and mash a throw button until you think he’s going to throw, at which point to stand and piano your throws.
2.) Recognize the absence of an attack and immediatly hit a throw button. Again, when you think he’s going to throw, stand and paino your throws.
Which method proves to be most effective? Method 1 seems easier, but leaves your exposed if they don’t apply true block strings.
