THAT!!! Like, fuck it! Luckily my last matches lately didn't have too much RE. But that shit sucks.It doesn't matter that it's easy to bait, the problem is that it forces you to footsies ignoring frame advantage.
It turns the gameplay into a boring street fighter neutral fest where everyone is afraid to press more than 1 button even on advantage, for fear of getting reversal edged.
If I have +2 advantage it's like I don't have anything. I can't condition my opponent with plus frames except when i'm +5 or more LOL.
If he makes a mistake, I can't start my pressure because I have to bait his RE , which is RETARDED as a principle. By making a mistake the opponent forces ME to guess or bait, which is imbecilic.
The issue here is not that the mechanic is gamebreaking or overpowered. The issue is that it turns the game into a turn based crap where everyone is baiting everyone for fear of RE.
