    I poke with 2,1 / 2,1,4 / df+1 / df+1,4 / iWS+4 and occasionally chuck out iWS+2 to launch (surprisingly long range).

    Outside of poke range, I throw out f+4 and hope for a counterhit, then d/b+2,2,3 to juggle.

    2,4 to punish - natural combo + knockdown. Guaranteed after a parry as well. [​IMG]


    Okay, how do you do iWS+2, iWS+4? sometimes I do it on accident, when I try to do it I end up doing SSR+2_4, and when I hold d long enough to FC, then WS+2, it's so long.. it's gotta be 20 frames.

    I must be missing something on iWS moves.

    BTW, I think f+4 is great for out of poke range. It's interesting.. to me, I didnt ever see a "poke range," I always jabbed way too much :-\\ That's probably why I do well with Steve, his 1,2,1 moves so far that it catches people even out of poke range.

    Do you ever use cds+4, WS+2? or cds+1(,2 in DR I think? i only have 5.0/5.1) or CDS, f+1?

    I probably don't do iWS "properly" - I just hold d/b until "crouching" registers but the character hasn't reached full crouch, then just release and hit 2 or 4.

    By "outside of poke range" I mean when my standard pokes just whiff. At the same time, my opponent's pokes will probably also whiff, so they'd have to get closer to hit me (after blocking/getting hit by a barrage of pokes...) - which is when I hope f+4 catches them on counterhit. Not sure if this is a good set-up or not, but I find myself doing f+4 after iWS+4 a lot, because a blocked iWS+4 tends to push my opponent just out of poke range.

    I should add that I'm a bit of a scrub with Jin so you may wanna take my advice with a big pinch of salt. [​IMG]

    Re the CDS, the cancel to f,f+1 is pretty much the only move I use from it, maybe with the odd cancel to (E)WHF for variety.

    Thanks very much, as well as Homme.

    Even if you're a scrub, there's probably a couple moves I could borrow off ya [​IMG]
