haha i noticed this with ermac combos. A lot of the time, I'll see good ermac players do "fancier" combos even when there is easier alternatives that do around the same/more damage. The only real reason i can think of is that it looks cool. I suck with ermac though and cant do many of his cool looking combos that use like 3 aarh telepunches, so props to those who can. Too lazy to learn how I'll stick with H.smoke and my lame textbook ermac combos lol. Something i find weird is I'm quite good at catching people with aaRH to telepunch combos in matches when i'm playing as ermac, hsmoke, or scorp, but when i try to do it in Ermac combos i bring a lotta fail.
