    Noob question. What are my options when my opponent is staggering jabs into low starting strings.
    Mash crouching jab?

    EntropicByDesign Confused and afraid.

    Cr.jab checks and just blocking the lows, they are all pretty negative and many are steppable to one side or the other - if not both. Additionally a lot of low strings either transition into a high (so you can easily block the low and launch under the high) or the ones that follow into a mid are usually pretty damn negative. Finally, depending on spacing and the string being used, since a lot of low strings start off standing lows, who's range is traditionally weak, if you are decently spaced out you can often sneak a backdash after a blocked jab, and many lows are slow enough that even though the guy staggering the jabs is somewhere from +1 to -1 depending, you can still beat out the low, and whiff punish accordingly. It all depends on the situation and what's being used against you.

    Im not any good at dealing with it myself, but those are some options that can work. The more I learn about Tekken the more I'm beginning to understand why people say that movement *is* Tekken.

    Devil Jin is just fucking ridiculous. I love him - but holy shit. He has a super compact kit, and every damn thing in that kit does huge damage, from pokes to launchers, has solid to crazy good frame data, tons of in-built mix and trickery so even when he's negative he doesn't necessarily get punished or even lose his turn..

    I want a mishima to play because I enjoy - though am bad at - landing multiple ewgf combos and having the stupid powerful hellsweep mix and CD cancels into ws moves.. basically DJin takes his small kit and adds enough flavor with cancels and mix and all that to make it feel larger and not as stale as, say, Shaheen can feel sometimes.

    But this character is the best character in the game by a decent margin. Dragunov is arguably his equal, and I can see the reasons, but all said and done, DJin just feels stronger..

    There's no point to this post really, just that I think DJin is the only character that I've personally played that *feels* like tier lists matter in this game. Watching him and playing him it's insane just what he can do.

    GGs to @JBeezYBabY you're the first Capo player I played with great movement and character knowledge. The games definitely helped me and I'm certain some of my parries surprised you! Haha, we had great rounds but he pulled away, he has definitely helped me understand the MU.

    I'm goin' to buy once I can play Noctis, Akuma isn't enough. I need more Final Fantasy in my fighting games.
