    I'll eventually bite the bullet and make the switch when I figure out what I like doing in the game, but this is the first and last time I'm doing the "pick up the easy" character thing. It's such a trap. Just pick the guy who looks coolest to you bros

      Why not play Ky as a pocket?

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        I'll definitely keep him as a pocket since I still think he's pretty fun

        Try Faust
        he's got most of the same upsides as Ky, is probably an even stronger character if only by a little bit, but is a lot less "generic"

        I did try Faust a little though it was in +R and not Xrd. Might try him again, but I really hate the noises he makes kek. I do really like the good movement and pretty fun light setplay Ky can do, so I'm hovering between Kum (although I don't like doing links), Dizzy, or Millia. I-No too but her stubby normals put me off, we'll see

        i always fucking hated fighting baiken as potenkim in both +r and xrd
        never really got the hang on how to deal with her.

        I main Pot/Kliff in +R. Baiken is pretty tough to fight, but it's really easy pickings for Potemkin if you can figure out what type what kind of player you're facing. 7/10 they're parry happy because it's very strong, so you can get away with more safe jumps and empty jump busters than you'd think. To test this you can see how they react to blocked 5H from max distance. They'll usually try and counter with the S follow up or cross you up with the H follow up. Simply block the former and advance or be ready for the latter and punish with a buster. If they're more conservative with their parries, be very mindful with your pressure. You can still get more grabs since they'll look for a specific move but the pressure is on you when you're attacking, which really does suck. Otherwise generally, try and be vigilant in neutral because FB Tatami will ruin your day, try and catch them off guard with slide head and be ready to anti air with your good 6P. 2K>2D is also a very reliable way to challenge pressure resets and the command run

            If they're good then this doesn't mean that there's anything you can't do, but you'll have to take a few more risks to win. Try to keep in mind the RPS around escaping grappler Oki to and try and stagger your pressure a bit more. Your 2S is very good at resetting pressure, but it also leaves the baiken closer to you for their confirm if you're careless. You'll also have to play RPS around her counter but there's ways to beat it. Generally you're going to have to have to read what sort of counter they're going for so again it's risk on your part. S follow up can be beaten with hammer fall (you can hedge the bet in your favour with an RC). H follow up can be blocked and punished with buster if they're close or a 5K starter combo. Potemkin 5H into slide head can create more RPS and add something to their mental stack of they're planted on the ground ready to parry. If they're afraid of this, then you can use heat knuckle, a j.P confirm or an air throw to beat that. Throw in an occasional mega fist forward to check them overhead and add more to their stack(use this option sparingly or with metre to cancel). It's difficult but not impossible. And if you are right, you get to melt her. Doesn't excuse the dogshit implementation of her defensive mechanic. If she's got enough metre she'll just use the D follow up from party which is just so in her favour a lot of the time.

          I play Dizzy, she's a lot of fun and more complicated than she seems, her basic combo game is just anything>2D or anything>4S>Ice Spike but you have to know like 13 different variations on oki depending on their wakeup timing, the height they got hit at, whether fish is on cooldown, if they represent blitz or not, if they can fuzzy guard, if they're trying to react to airdash crossups, whether they like to jump out of fake setups or not etc, and a lot of it is manually timed and requires adapting to your opponents defensive habits despite how uninteractive it seems on the surface. I tried Millia for a bit too and while I never got very good at her I found her setplay a lot less interesting because you basically just flip coins all day.
          I-No isn't as stubby as she looks, on defence she's definitely lacking a bit of range but in neutral and pressure the way her character works she threatens a bigger space than most of the cast

            I might give I-No a shot now that you reminded me her neutral is pretty great. I'll keep in mind what you said about the other characters too, but Dizzy is putting me off a little because of how much I'd have to commit to her, and I don't think I like her that much to do so. If all else fails there's always Leo. Unga is never not fun

                Oh I should definitely give her a shot now. Making the opponent move into spots want is my favourite part about playing Ky. Her movement is pretty varied too. The Blitz guarding the shotgun was so ballsy in this clip. Goddamn man

    how do you beat sol doing fs>gunflame and basing their offence on that

      >air dash on the f.s if you think gunflame is next
      >keep in mind if sol starts doing bandit revolver instead of gunflame, you get tagged
      >if he yrcs the gunflame, you're dead

      gonna ask here since why not
      is there something im missing about baiken's basic dustloop in xrd? i don't think its hard at all (i have done it) but I'm very inconsistent with it, after the j.S>J.D I try to do the dash but it doesn't come out.
      Does it need a specific jump height or something? I've tried regular and super jump and I still never get it.

      practice just doing high jump j.d air dash, there is no specific height, the recovery of j.d is high and you're waiting until it almost ends and inputting the airdash

        what amazes me is that bandit revolver is suppose to be minus on stand block but multiple times they do 5K and I get hit. Or they backdash and my punish gets whiffed. Is this the fabled -spacing- I've heard so much about?

      >How do I improve at defensive play? I feel like I get completely shut down and can't do anything.
      1. Practice instant blocking when you start to get a feel for how your opponent is going to attempt to open you up.
      2. Practice Faultless Defense when you have meter as it gives a bit of pushback which can potentially open a gap large enough for you to begin a potential counter attack.
      3. If you've got 50 meter there's no shame in using dead angle to reset neutral
      4. Blitz Defense can be used as a parry of sorts that will on success allow you a small window of opportunity to counter attack.
      5. Burst when you feel like it's safe to do so but be wary of how much life you have when you're using it and what round it is.

      For newer players I usually suggest looking for places to get guaranteed Blitzes
      A lot of things that are particularly hard to deal with for new players that other new players will be relying on are quite weak to getting blitzed, which at a high level is risky since people will both call it out and be ready to blitz back and play RPS, but it's great at low/mid levels for forcing people to respect you and stop just doing the same things over and over, and looking for places to use it is good for teaching you to pay attention to your opponents habits and cancel options.

      Good neutral play is good defensive play. Avoiding an unfavorable situation is just as good, as being able to get out of it. Follow the advice

      gives here and watch this video https://youtu.be/bhkeXFusijo. The TL;DW is that GG neutral has an RPS. Reactive play is beaten by an IAD or running in. IAD and runs are beaten by preemptive/predictive attacking. Preemptive/predictive attacking is beaten by reactive play and looking for easy attacks to punish. Recognising what your opponent is trying to while keeping in mind your tools and the goals of your character can help you greatly with making strong defence

      Also know how pressure works, because it also has its own RPS. Stagger pressure tries to make you mash to get hit with a frame trap so be patient and block. Resets are usually pretty high on startup, so you can beat that by mashing or back dashing. Throw attempts can be beaten the same way. Recognising what your opponent is trying to do is very important, so consider your options carefully.

      how did he block this wtf happened

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Heat Knuckle is a little janky, it's not actually a command grab, it's an air unblockable hitgrab that locks you in place, but only the first hit is actually unblockable. You can also Blitz it, just because.
        Chipp burst while he was knocked down, which doesn't remove the OTG state that limits hitstun and lets you tech stuff you normally couldn't, so he got hit by the first one, then immediately teched and blocked the next hit and fell out, but the only thing the game checks to see if Pot can do the followup is if the first hit connected or not.

            Raven's air grab works the same way so there's probably some kind of weird engine reason for it. Heavenly Pot Buster is a real grab though, afaik, so I have no idea what it could be.
