Why is it so hard to dash out of a focus after being crossed up?


#1

i’m sad to be posting in the noob thread, but i have noticed this for a while and i’m sure others have to

charge a focus, your opponent jumps over you, teleports behind you, whatever. i mash on dash, but my character just sits there like a retard and lets out a level 3 focus in the wrong direction only to eat a throw or combo

the dash comes out sometimes, but my fail rate is much much higher than it should be. is there a reason for this?

Either you wait to long and it’s too late to dash out, or you panic and you mess up dashing somehow is my guess.


#3

Hace is on point.
Maybe its your stick or pad.
I’ve never had an issue with this.
I wouldn’t be surprised if you had trouble with FADC as well

Once you pass the window between a level 2 and a level 3 focus, you can’t dash cancel it. Maybe that has something to do with it.
