Strategy - Kitana Dealing with the rising fan-float loop

THTB

When's Syzoth?
So Wonder Chef posted a video detailing a 40% blockstring with Kitana that involved using f112 xx rising fan xx MB float j2. It was supposedly inescapable. Not sure if this was posted, but there is a punish to the blockstring.


By crouch blocking the rising fan, float j2 will not connect. From what I understand, this punish isn't possible with some characters, unless I'm mistaken. But experiment, and see what you can do.

For bigger hit box characters like F/T you have to block low on the last 3(?) hits to scoot her far enough away. I might be mistaken though

Yes this was talked about the minute chef posted it.

It's kinda a double edged sword tho. If you're crouch blocking, she can delay the jp and then it becomes an OH, and then you get hit, then Kitana starts her game

I tested against cassie..she cannot be jailed by the whole string..flip or backdash is always guaranteed
I've tried against male characters and I can jail them easily so it's not a timing issue..still, if someone have better execution and wants to test it it'd be welcome

you can backdash too, but I like the corner one @wonderchef found... in open space even kitana herself can backdash it, or if ur not confident in that just armor her (u spend 1 bar for her 2, not too bad
