Hey guys really important update on Pole Vault run cancel to simply annoy a Scorpion tp and gain nothing out of it-um chain exists. Still super fun to suicide imo.Been playing polevault variation all day against a close friend (teached him how to d2 and low profile her polevault)
Most miserable day in my short MK11 life.
Polevault is really just a gimmick at this point : anyone with matchup knowledge will destroy that move with the greatest of ease ...
Been trying to setup some parry mind game.
I think I need hints, because unless I'm wrong, there are zero situation where people are forced to d1 to escape Jade, they can just d3 or d4 and accomplish the same thing ... making her parry mind games really weak up close. (unlike Liu Kang that forces you to d1 if you wanna interrupt his kick string)
Ive been trying to use f4 to go over d3 or d4 and force a d1 but didnt work well ... very slow low crush move.
Any tip ?
That being said maybe the answer to d2ing pole vault is pole vault cancel into parry? Just an idea. Probably not worth the risk, and like I said before I cant get the timing down for the life of me to properly test it.
Also once you parry a d1 or two the enemy is just going to switch to d3, or worse, full combo punish off a low starter. I think the parry is pretty much exclusively on read. Think a Jacqui or Liu is gonna Flying punch/kick you? Parry. But I'm shit at this game so mostly I just get hit by those instead.
Parry can also be used after b3434 in the corner, but pretty much nothing should interrupt b3434 spam in the corner except push back or flawless block.
If you're constantly staggering b3 you can probably easily bait into a parry as well. Most people would probably want to d1 it since by the time they realize it's a stagger they may not have time to get a d3 out before the next b3 begins.
