Gen's Parry

#1 Posted by lordofultima (6270 posts) -

So yeb discovered that Gen has a makeshift parry in SFIV, by canceling focus into stance change. This is pretty nuts, I don't know if he should have revealed this before Super came out, Capcom is somewhere out there, listening, and removing functionality! Haha.

Holy crap. Gonna be interesting to see how this plays out in tournaments.

I don't really know if it'll make gen any better of a character. It looks like a tool that can only be used effectively in specific situations and you'd have to know exactly what kind of attack the other guy is gonna do. Sure you could throw it out on wake up but for it to accomplish anything the other person would have had to do a single hit, no armor breaking move with long recovery and those aren't the kinds of things people generally do on wake up anyway. It's still cool but I doubt this will do anything significant for gen, he has too many other problems.

@Thrawn:
You're right, it probably won't. It's still going to be entertaining to watch any shenanigans that come out of it.

Yo Real Talk! That looks mad hard to do on the fly. I guess I'm off to do it right now.

and you're taking the gamble that they're not doing a armor breaking move or something with multiple hits....and even then if you focus a crouching jab you haven't really accomplished much

Well, Bracken, if you watch the video you will notice he isnt doing it in any of those situations. Im pretty sure that no one would do it mid combo. It just make wake up / fireball avoidance easier.

I guess we'll see tomorrow how well gen can parry a random headbutt.....not well at all I'm thinking? and tier whore isn't responding to his phone so maybe he'll come by, maybe not

Until I hear stories of Yeb's major win streak because he can parry shit on the fly now, there no reason why capcom should take this out.

Doesn't mean they won't though. 
 
Personally I think it's pretty cool and Gen isn't high tier anyways so there's not much to complain about unless this is really game-changing or drastically affects one of his matchups. Would love to see someone do this in intense situations.
#20 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12005 posts) -

This could either be completely negligible or move Gen up a few spots on the tier list. I am betting the former.

#21 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -
@AniMoney: Watch the last thing Capcom announces, "oh yeah, and there is parrying now." Well, probably not, but it's cool to see something like this exist, even if it was on accident, or was it?!
#22 Posted by Plasma (931 posts) -

Its not a parry all, its a focus attack that can be cancelled quicker than normal. But parry is a much easier way to talk about it :P 
For people with good enough execution, it just adds another layer to Gen's 'WTF I wasn't expecting THAT!'

#23 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

It looks super usefull against Dhalsim. That pesky Fireball -- Arms thing can be super annoying sometimes.

@lordofultima: Have you, or anyone, seen this in action? 
 
It'd be awesome if someone started owning with gen at a tournament with that tech.

I did it today in casuals at my college for the lolz. It has some pretty strict timing but it was funny when I did it then proceeded to jump in and get a free combo.

There's already a video, I don't see what Canned taping some casuals would do for us.
