    I noticed that Forceball traps don't work in the corner against Kitana. The second force ball goes through her like Ermac. I also noticed it with other characters. Has it always been this way? OR is this just an attempt from NRS to stop the frame traps on certain characters in the corner. IDK.

    Only happens with some characters in the corner, havent tested it extensively. I know Sindel, Jade, Kitana, Mileena are all like this. Also has to do with how close you are to them in the corner, probably due to them not being pushed back.

    Is this a patch, or has it always been like this?

    When you do a combo with Cage such as f3,3, ex forceball. If the opponent high blocks the whole string or takes the whole string then they are trapped. They can't do anything except block. Cage can then safely do any combo he pleases. Granted it should be on the fast side.

    If I remember correctly f3,3,b3xxEXforceball in the corner works against any opponent (maybe it won't work vs. Reptile and Ermac, I should test it).

    Problem with this is they are not jailed after b3 so an opponent can duck the EX forceballs and punish. Unless it jails in the corner or something crazy but I've never heard of that.

    Yes, it jails the opponent in the corner because they are forced to standing block the last kick.
    Only way to escape the frame trap is take the kick.

    There is no set way to escape Cages traps, because there is no set way to do them. The forceballs dont work on Ermac/Reptile midscreen.

    Kitana Shang and Quan in the corner I've noticed, sure it works on Mileena though

    So i'll prob have to stay away from you as much as possible & try not to mess up a teleport or a dash or i'll be eating frametraps for dinner!

    Right now how do I beat that Stryker of yours? lol

    Im all good mate, even tho you batter me! Hopefully i'll learn the do's & don'ts soon enough so I can give you a better match.

    About Stryker, the best advices I can give you are:

    1) Don't stay far away from him if you can't outzone him.

    2) Always block low. Stryker overheads are slow and you will have no problem blocking them on reaction.

    You're very good player man matches with you are great. I expect you to babality me next time lol :p

    Johnny Cage has a great zoning game too, didnt you know?!
    Why post as if you know what you're talking about when every time you've posted about Cage you just show how little you understand the character.

    Come back to this thread once you actually have an understanding of the character. Its just annoying reading what you type, might aswell just be dribbling on your keyboard -.-
