Jade's resets are ex boomerang and ex overhead.
REO's Jade is okay, but he fought people who had no idea what Jade is capable of.
My point is some of your stuff is a guessing game. You gonna rang ex on a assumption? You lose a whole bar if they chose to block low instead of punch.
But seeing that they commit to a low block on wakeup isn't useless... It can help Jade's pressure on wakeup game
And even if they do it just that one time, ex rang will stuff their teleport...
Have you done glow+jumping? That will negate spear and hellfire at the same time.
With the right timing you can hit scorpion out of tele punch even his EX.
So it's possible to cover all 3 options in one jump as jade.
The same can be done for Jade's low boomerang. Can on reaction to watching ur meter, block low.
To be honest, that's something I have to work on more when fighting Scorpion. Most good Scorpions use their spear sparingly, or only in combos, and I always seem to get caught by spears when I'm least expecting it, because I'm not looking for it. I'm glowing constantly again characters like Kitana, Sub-Zero, Kung Lao, etc...and should probably be doing the same again Scorpions.
I guess I'm not quite sure on the timing for jump-punching him out of his teleport, so I'm not too fond of trying it. I've done it on accident before, but never with the intent of knocking him out of his teleport on purpose. If you jump slightly before he teleports, should you be pushing the punch button as soon as you jump?
They don't really even have to watch your meter...if they see you glow purple and see a boomerang come out at the same time, they know you're using an Ex...I wish Jade didn't have the purple animation on her Ex boomerangs for this reason.
Thanks for the advice guys. I'll put some of this stuff to practice against Scorpion.
You can "see" or "test" their patterns through a safer means than throwing meter. If you're talking about whiffing the first hit and they block it low. I'm ok with that. It keeps them in the corner and you can build more pressure/meter on their block.
but in a case where your inputs will go in at the same time as Scorpions. It's not worth the risk if you don't know for sure. Because if you hit his low block... you're eating a combo from him. or at the very least get in a coin flip situation where you either... take chip, or take 40%. Both are not good.
When I get them in corners. I spam D3. If they block low now I know. I will get pushed back, then I can start more pressure and he won't be able to teleport. most of the options I use will keep him in the corner as long as he doesn't jump toward me. But I got "safety" feel traps to call them out on that.
For the record against a PRO, low EX rang is garbage. It's similar to Mileena. I can see mileena spend her meter, And I am always capable of holing block longer on reaction to seeing the meter used up.
The same can be done for Jade's low boomerang. Can on reaction to watching ur meter, block low. But.... in a corner situation i'm cool with them reading that cuz they stay in the corner.
the main difference is mileena's EX makes her more safe.
