Menace

RELINQUISH!
I'll be maining Hwang! ... I mean, Assassin!

I had alot of good times playing this character when i was a kid. It'll be great to actually learn how to play him properly. One thing i do remember tho is him having very good kicks. Anyways cant wait to play this game and the Silent Assassin!

HORIZONTALS DON'T TRACK. ONLY VERTICALS DO. GET YOUR TERMINOLOGY RIGHT, SIGNIA!


3A = 0 ON HIT (-13 ON BLOCK, APPROX.)
3AA = +4 ON HIT (-8 ON BLOCK, APPROX.)
3AAB = KND (-15 ON BLOCK, APPROX.)


3AAB IS A COMBO ONLY ON COUNTERHIT.

Also remember that if you commit to 3AA (you can't hit confirm off just 3A, it has to be 3AA) that that BS -8 means nothing if it's blocked and they will likely get a full whiff punish since 3AA is low > high.

They have to read you to block the 3AA in the first place, of course.

edit: hi vints. everyone wants to play your bonus character. no one wants to play mine. :(

I THINK YOU'RE WRONG.
Well from what I learned from Aris' tutorial and using some logic when advance and retreat guarding the amount of pushback is lessen depending on the characters weight and Asta is pretty heavy so is the generic one. I'm just using game system and basic logic. Relax brother.
