Close up it's a nightmare for Cetrion.How do you guys handle the Liu Kang MU? I've tried everything but I just can't do it. I can switch to Skarlet and dominate it, but with Cetrion it's the worst next to Scorpion. How do you guys play it?
Basically, up close I can't push anything because the F4 string mix-ups and the standing punch string mix-ups, mixed with grab. Too many options. Far away I struggle to zone because of all the fireballs and full screen kick that hits KB. I dunno how to play this one at all.
You need to practice the timing on flawless block his plus string, it's full combo punishable if u do it. If u time it good enough, u should be protected from the low fireball too, but you gotta really have that shit down.
The only way that worked for me with Liu Kang is conditioning him to not throw his flying kick via nature barrier. Once you have him scared, it should be relatively easy to outzone him, but you'll need a read here and there versus his flying kick, it allows him to close the space really fast, but if you are able to block it, it is full combo punishable too.
