Tips for Breaking Throws (without Crouch Teching)


#1

This is seriously the only FG I’ve ever played where breaking throws that I KNOW are coming seems impossible. If I’m confident of a throw attempt, I don’t want to be mashing CT. Is there anything anyone tell me that I may not have considered when it comes to breaking throws?


#2

Are you playing online? That might be the problem, you can’t “see and tech” in online the same way you can kinda do it offline


#3

Offline/Online doesn’t matter. Often times, if I read a tick setup, no matter how I vary the timing after blockstun I often can’t break the grab. Maybe I just need to focus more. Does teching neutral (w/o holding down/back) change things at all?


#4

I have this problem too. “how many jabs will I do before throwing” is still a great mixup 5 years later rofl


#5

You could try stand>crouch on every jab. The animation prevents you from being thrown :3

Combined with crouch-tech, might help a tiny bit.

Of course, good players will just start doing shorts or delay the throws, etc…
