That midscreen F24~SSC into B1 is nearly impossible onlineAww dude I didn't realize you could link B1 after F24~SSC in the midscreen, that's dope. Game changer for me, I thought you can only link S3 inconsistently like off jump ins.
But you don't actually have to hit down twice to cancel it! You just need to hit it once, you can even hold down after the startup. Took me months to realize that haha
I've always found Cetrion to be the worst for him personally, but yeah Scorpion doesn't seem very nice with easy mode punishes on Flames. But some characters can punish it with Flawless Block and there's some other good counters like Cassie V2's charge so it is a thing. At least Scorpion doesn't zone you out, but yeah he takes away a lot from Spellmaster. Can't use soul jar at all, can't charge up DF3, you have to be meticulous with Screaming Soul, etc. But you can just try to keep it simple, having more damage should help him a little bitScorpion is THE counter for Spellmaster
He can teleport between the first and the second hit of Crashing Flames on block, and between the second and third if we amp the move as well...
