ok ok ok i have always said second impact hugo is better than third strike but no one seems to agree with me, thus this thread is created. some of this may be inaccurate due to lack of playing second impact in years, but here’s me best shot.
second impact differences:
-standing jab is bufferable
-standing jab is bufferable into itself up to five times (on most characters)
-low jab is bufferable into itself up to five times (on most characters)
-shootdown backbreaker can be teched
-ultra throw -> clap -> backbreaker doesn’t work
-(in the corner) ultra throw -> clap X 5 and repeat after stun will kill any character
-ass is not an overhead
-have to be closer to do the elbow overhead
third strike differences:
-can kara throw a little bit with standing forward
-can kara leap attack a little bit with standing forward
the five jabs XX hammer frenzy and the clap infinite were what convinced me.
your opinions? comments on hugo’s and/or poison’s color differences? feel free to flame.
