Tick throws in netplay
« on: September 13, 2007, 08:42:44 PM »
I'm just wondering, 'cause i'm getting the hang of tick throwing, is it frowned upon to tick throw on netplay? Like obviously when theres lag I have a real advantage tick throwing and I try not to, but in games where the game is 60fps and delay 3 is it still not good practice to tick throw people?

I've had a few matches vs some people that i kept tick throwing them ... nobody really said anyhitng to me, If anyhitng lag makes tick throwing less effective since you can see it coming alot easyer.  well thats just my opinion <.<. . .

Yeah, but just because you can see it coming doesn't mean that the input registers in time to stop it. Same goes for mixups. Its like, I usually see them the split second that I'm allowed to block it, but the lag makes the input miss. Not that it matters too much, its only aggrivating when your opponent doesn't seem affected at all by lag. Thats  :(

well it's really obvious to see a tick coming if the game stops every 3 seconds.

Keep doing it. Ticks are valid, and some people in netplay mash buttons a lot more, making ticking less effective against these players. Smart poke-outs are also effective, and it's possible to queue these poke-outs up.

I'd like to agree, but the only thing I had against it is that taking advantage of lag is kinda like taking advantage of a third party pausing the game for a second. That quote is and should only apply to using in game mechanics that people deem "cheap" or broken, like an infinite combo or something.

If we're going to frown on tick-throws, then are we also going to frown on air-to-ground blockstrings because lag makes it too hard to transition from high guard to low guard? The examples can go on forever. It's online play. Lag is everywhere and is always present. There is no way to not take advantage of it.

Nah, there's nothing wrong with tick throwing on netplay, in fact, you can and should be able to react to it anyways, the lag really poses no threat. This is of course taking into account that a good FPS is present and a delay is of atleast 4. But, even then there should be no problem with tick throws.
