Pat's wide open for punishment if that gets blocked.What about Patsuka? I don't know his inputs (haven't played with him) but IIRC he had what I called the "barrel roll" that TC and had crazy range. If BL A were mid or something I'd like it a whole lot better, or if it was -0 on block/hit, that would make a lot more sense. That would be a "get me out of here" move that resets the situation, not putting you at a disadvantage.
-8 on hit is actually safe isn't it? Who has a 7 frame punisher? Patsu's CE isn't even that fast.
