I used to get command dash after cr.mk, rekka when I first started with Yang. It doesn’t happen anymore because I’ve trained my hands to do it properly. Every once in a while it happens in lag though.

Sometimes I’ll get command grab instead of DP if my opponent tries a cross-up, but I don’t think that’s a negative edge issue.


#1496

Quick question y’all. I know this has probably been touched on before but what exactly do you do against characters that cl. mk, divekick, cl. mk, heavy rollkick doesn’t work? I was fighting an Adon and it was never working for the life of me :frowning:


#1497

i just tested it in training mode, it definitely works on adon. clmk dash clmk hk dp doesnt but divekick does. As far as i know, clmk divekick clmk is universal.


#1498

were you recently posting on /r/sf4 with the same issue?

cuz i recently discussed this same thing with someone there

unfortunately my answer to is is the same as my answer to them, that has never once been a problem for me in the four years i’ve been playing yang


#1499

Used to be a problem for me. I just had to let go of mk faster than i used to and I was good


#1500

I’ll sometimes get dash instead of the rekka, very rare though. I generally hold cr. mk down while cancelling into the rekka, or just tap cr. mk very quickly.


#1501

No I don’t post on reddit


#1502

is there a yang facebook group? Character facebook groups tend to be more active


#1503

Does Yang have any meaty setups?


#1504

This channel has some https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvjvzDtvzRjWEWVckUOteWQ


#1505

How do I OS teleport properly? I’m trying to get an OS to catch things like Seth Teleport, so I do forward throw dash once jump mk then down back lightkick to os it but I only get upkicks. I’ve practiced doing it without the setup and I can get the dash easily from just jumping over him and doing it, so I’m not sure why it wont work with the setup.


#1506

Don’t reverse your inputs, so just do qcf + kick for the teleport


#1507

An option select ive been trying on chun is:

throw, cr.mp, jf.hp OS rekka or ex roll

Am I just inputting it wrong? This should be a safe jump os. The OS beats her backdash but SBK always beats me if I input an OS.

Seems like Chun isnt free against Yang on wakeup? I think the startup of SBK is causing the jf.hp to count as whiffed.

What do you do on chuns wakeup to beat her? As a chun player ive never really lost to Yang players but I hear a lot of people say Yang beats her. To me it seems that EX SBK is really great for her in this match.


#1508

I’m doing the move as crossup, and If I do it as qcf + k i get command throw every time


#1509

Make sure you have the stick back at neutral then. Quarter circle motion should never get you command grab unless you’re pressing and extra direction during the jump.

I’m not 100% sure on seth because I remember stuff like cl.hp xx mk rollkicks doesn’t make you automatically crossup, but if you are crossing up, doing the motion non crossup works.

I do it all the time vs shotos for the crossup divekick. Maybe test the setup vs then first and see if the os comes out? Could be an issue with seth’s height…dunno.

Don’t have access to the game for a few days unfortunately


#1510

I’ll give it a go putting it back in neutral, that def sounds like what I’m missing, thanks


#1511

I often see players like shine use st.mp xx dash resets/cross ups

However I can only get this to work like once before people react and start mashing jab.

Is there a secret to making them not press anything? The dash is slow enough that they can react to it so frametraps don’t seem to help in this specific case.

Thanks


#1512

I think it’s terrible, on the level of blanka hop offense.

I see mago doing cr.mk xx teleport nowadays from stuff like cl.mp, cr.mk xx tp. Basically the range you won’t crossup but just get back in after a blocked string. Maybe it’s “safer” in those scenarios.


#1513

I agree.

How about Yang’s safe jump off of sweep? What is it?


#1514

Also can you option select Akumas teleport with ultra or roll kick?

When I do it, it doesn’t chase him. It just does it immediately. I’m doing it off throw btw
