Setups for EX Crow
« on: April 02, 2007, 02:03:51 AM »
It looks like that in certain instances, it's not always best to let your opponent get a handle on your EX Deer game, but you still have lots of meter to burn.

At certain heights, performing an air combo into an air throw seems to affect the distance between him and his opponent upon landing. The lower you are to the ground, the closer you are to them.

Magikarp's told me that SAT regularly uses EX Crow setups at that approximate range to where the opponent will be forced to crouch unless they want to eat chip damage from the EX Crows. But because they're crouching, they're not actually blocking the crows; hence, they are vulnerable to being thrown (and eating ~2400 damage because of being held up to EX Crows).

I'll try experimenting with different heights to get the best results out of this, but if anyone has anything to contribute (research/experience), please feel free to contribute.

It used to be braindead easy before the updates leading to AC/FT but if you can somehow manage to make them airguard EX Crows, that's obviously free guard break into air combo as well.   Though this setup is a lot more different now than it was then.  (i.e. they jumped into you, you traded EX crows with their j.abc and you won)

Then there's the make them block ex deer AND ex crows and scare them with an unblockable arc drive.  Which depending on their life and experience vs this kind of trap, could scare them into getting hit by the crows, deer, or the arc drive.

this is some interesting stuff because this is my favorite character in the game and I am new to the scene. Is there anywhere this could be explained if you were using a stick?

I always thought I was cool when throwing into the EX crows.
