>>R2 - BF4 = Unblockable.
Since the game released I have been going through every character to put together a quick reference guide on how to punish strings, normals and specials. This first run of videos covers what punishers can be used and in what situations as well information on which of the punishable strings can be special cancelled.

I plan on doing follow up videos for things that need in depth explanation, e.g. Sonya's MS cancel options as doing these in the basics punishment videos makes them very long. This is mainly for my own personal reference but I feel these will help people get a basic understanding of how they can punish the cast with Scorpion. What I've made so far is intended as a starter, if you have something character specific or know a better option please tag me in your post and I will update this OP as often as I can.

Happy punishing :D

Playlist for full current cast - Will be updated for DLC and any big updates or patches. If such an update renders the information in one video too inaccurate I will redo them.

30/07/2015 Updated with Predator and Tremor. Trying a new format to make the videos much quicker.

But I didn't want to dash
Just wanted to throw this out there. I cant really make any in depth vids but this could help people.

Any negative attacks that push back can normally be punished by f3 xx whatever or st 4 xx whatever. I've been using st4 xx ex tp to punish ermacs vortex attempts because they push him back very far on block. These normals work very well for a lot of punishes. Best punish for anything close is usually. 114.

Updated with the basics for Predator and Tremor videos, trying a new approach which drastically reduces the time for them. I think both of these characters will warrant a part 2 for specific stuff.

@Hollywood DMS Would you mind stickying this? I have quite a few updates planned for this over the next few days.

I'm well aware of that, that's why every normal that can be special cancelled is specified in every video. These videos are purely meant as a starting point for breaking down character punishment.

I agree Lao is a tough match for Scorpion, the true punishers aren't going to come around that often unfortunately agasint a smart Lao player.

It's been stickied!
Thanks, you da man! :D
