I’m having trouble doing alot of Abel’s b&b’s because I can’t special cancel consistently. I went into training mode to see what was up and I noticed that the times which failed to special cancel, it said that I had completely missed out downforwards, so I had went straight from down to forwards, and completely skipped out downforwards.
When I special cancel I do the quater circle motion much slower and hammer punch, because then it picks up the down+MP and sometimes cancels it into change direction.
However because i’m doing the entire movement much slower than usual the octagate seems to cause trouble, whereas it doesn’t when I do a fast fluid motion for when i’m using specials on their own.
I’m in desperate need of help, i’ve been trying to do this for 2 days straight now and I really want to make Abel my main, but most of Abel’s b&b’s involve special cancelling which I can’t do consistently with the octagate.
I REALLY DON’T WANT TO CHANGE MY GATE.
EDIT:If I do the motion at my regular speed it usually skips the down+MP and goes straight into direction change.
