Kollector main who plays Jacqui
16bit was explaining that Sonya Blade doesn't use a weapon so she has short range, but she has really good mix-ups.
You'll be able to learn which moves are krushing blows and defend accordingly. It's a risk reward thing. Like say a krushing blow will grant a combo that does 30% and it activates on counter hit. So you have to consider that when playing footsies when that combo would kill. Or maybe there's an overhead that will only grant a combo on the third time you hit the opponent with it, defending against that you would prioritize blocking the overhead less until after you've been hit twice. And the krushing blow only happens once.I think I’m mostly into the gameplay with the exception of krushing blows... seems like it will be hard to be able to anticipate from an opponent, might be salt inducing to die from some random 30% damage move out of the blue
