      In INJ2 how many frames does it take to go from crouch to standing? If you block crouching and have a 6F S1 what can be punished?

        I'm not sure if there's any frame delay from crouch because you cancel your while rising animation when you hit a button. It may take a frame to unblock though.

      Is there a good beginner guide for MKX? I didn't really get into it too much originally, but I wouldn't mind giving it another try.

        For a punish? 9-12 frame normals will do you just fine. You also need a 7 frame poke (or 6). Pay attention to the d3 and d1 frames. For example Kano has a d1 that's like 10 frames (awful) but his d3 is 6 or 7 (good). Kung Lao has the opposite, a terrible d3 that should never ever be used, but good d1.

        haha lao's d3 isnt the best but it has its uses. one time mf slayer clipped sonic fox with a d3 as he was jumping and used dive kick to convert off of it and that swung the momentum in his favor and he closed out the set. it was pretty clutch

      What if there was an RPG style fighting game? Move lists based on gender, race, class, class specialization. Level up to add better moves.

        While Chrono Trigger is an all time great JRPG, I don't think it really has a lot of FG aspects to it. It uses real time to pass the turns like Final Fantasy 6 or MMBN like I was talking about but you don't actually move your characters. It's just like a regular RPG with timed turns and some spacing stuff depending on how the enemies place themselves.

        Speaking of FF6, one character in the game has a "Blitz" command where they can do different moves based on fighting game style inputs. But it's a novelty at best.

      What does it mean if a fighting game has "depth"? What is an example of a game that has it and a game that does not?

        I guess the best way to put it would be the amount of options you have. So UNIST, a game where every character can reverse beat, has insane depth. So does Tekken 7, because every character has options to counter options to counter options.

        Yeah people want to ban AR-15’s, but don’t realize hand guns account for the most gun deaths, by far, in America. Idk what should be done, all I know is prohibition doesn’t really work, especially in America.

        Let the CDC investigate gun violence. Let policy experts get together and start researching and crafting solutions. We have more options than just "do nothing" and "ban guns". America is the only country where this type of thing happens, I think it's time to try and change that.

        If you're referring to Cyborg, I do up Qcb then forward, then press 1 while buffer up and repeat. Other people use an analog technique, or input shortcuts, but I can't stand input shortcuts lol

        I'm referring to Cyborg, although it seems like a fairly universal NRS mechanic. I can sometimes get it when I use the stick, but then the rest of my execution with the stick is lousy. If I use the d-pad, my execution is better all around, but I can't get an IAFB. I don't know if it's better to just practice with the stick and up the rest of my execution, or try to do IAFB on the d-pad.

        It's not the best, but at least it's not like it is with Injustice 2 with 2 dominant characters and a few semi-dominant characters.

        Once you have a top 10 that can all compete with each other, you start bringing the other characters up to their level. Right now I feel like they need to bring the top 5 down to the top 10 character's level of competitiveness, but that won't happen anytime soon because of EVO.

        I don't think it's going to stay Aquaman and Black Adam as the two dominant characters. I think with a little time other characters can be at that level, and I think we're already seeing it with a character like Scarecrow winning CEO.

        I've labbed pretty much every character by now, and I honestly can't see many characters topping Black Adam and Aquaman. Scarecrow is an exception to me, but a lot of characters in this game really seem to be lacking or have questionable design choices.

        I just personally don't believe time will change much. Who knows though, I could always be wrong. I do know we will have to wait until EVO to find out.
