The following informative pictures are to explain the basic concept behind how to correctly understand the spacing between El Fuerte and his opponents after landing a Tortilla throw.
Let me stress that this is not just the explanation of “how to safe tortilla” but how to apply the technique of Safe Tortilla in different spacings.
While reading the following explanations, please view the picture posted along with each section.
============= THIS IS WHERE IT GETS TRICKY ==================
This post was made for the die-hard fuerte players, the ones that play him night and day and are trying to understand the logistics of El Fuerte. Fuerte has the MOST options over all in any given game than any other character, he has more inputs and must have much more information about his character than another player has about their own character.
One example of a situation that leads to varying points of A, B, and C**
If you hit your opponent with an anti-air FA and they are flung across the screen, there are multiple ways to catch him, for example…
Doing two HK Guacamole’s to land across the screen and build meter is good, but you will land at a different spacing between A-C than if you had immediately habanero dashed forward and stopped at the opponents rising corpse (then A-C would be directly next to and touching each other)
After safe tortilla there are several ways to take advantage of the time you’re capable of moving while your opponent is rising.
Some of these options are…
Habanero Dash (torwards opponent to start okizeme options or backward to build meter or increase distance between both characters
LK guacamole to build meter can be done more than once safely.
HK Guacamole to build meter, close distance, and/or land on other side of opponent
Tortilla over opponent (Blanka and Rufus cannot be shower kicked over)
Habanero dash torwards opponent, shower kick over him.
shower kick (can be done multiple times) to close distance between you and your opponent
C.RH - slide to your opponent
Accelerated wall jump torwards or over them
Quesadilla Bomb (may be able to shower kick over opponent before they rise)
