People dont even attempt to block lows, theyll take 1A, 1K, 11A 22k but if i do a knock down version, Bl Kk, RC k, 3A+K, Ro K, 2A they bitch. online frame crap aside. if i dont see you attempt to even block 1A;) ill use it a again. they dont fear it so why block it. fucking idiots dont bitch about nightmares low game.I disagree of course. I think the exact opposite. The game rewards aggression in an odd way.
In addition, blocking everything for instance amy's mids and her 2B+K isn't balanced in risk/reward. SC4 is played in a sacrificial way, people sacrifice taking a small amounts of damage to avoid a big a lose in damage. Which means never blocking low. It's a good thing most fast lows don't give advantage on hit so the defender can still attack.
Maxi suffers because he has too many negative frames. So his strings are easy to interrupt and his moves are easily punishable. But if his strings were a true 50/50 mixup, his SG damage theoretically might have been broken. However, as it is now the defender can always be aggressive when fighting Maxi. Because Maxi is supposed to be an aggressive character, I believe he was nerfed because of the addition of SG damage.
Facts about me online i dont like grabing but you can if u want just dont over abuse because offline i break that shit consistantly , i dont grab unless its of a wall combo, fakes, stun combos and mixups. i would rather physical hit you till your dead cause u cant block. most people who grab do it in a panic or just dont know how to stop or control your gameplay style. exclude Asta, rock, even ivy.
