There it is...
D4 guarantees all your pressure after.What are ppls thoughts on ending w nutpunch? Ive been doing it at rhe cost of damage (new cage player) but im leaning toward it not being a good idea. Nutpunch being only +5 means nothing is guaranteed aside from a poke. Once people respect the poke, it DOES open up f3, but im not sure its worth it.
D1 np is good. Can catch people even respecting the d1 or just blow up Mashers.
If you have fatal blow you can use it and instantly cancel to give yourself armour then go into f344 or f4.
Cross over or neutral jump 2 is good.
I have made a thread which shows how to get guaranteed pressure after with a hitbox bug at the cost of a bar.
If you go into the lab and try get a combo where you hit np at Max range, this spaces you a little back and allows you to move back and whiff punish their poke mash after.
Worst comes to worst. Block the poke and reversal grab. People mashing are rarely ready to go into anything after so a reversal grab is great as a counter to mashing
