Setups and techs

Here most of the different techniques that Zafina community has come up with lies, from the most basic tips for getting b1:1+2, to the relaunch set ups.

b1:1+2

While the input window for the extension is quite big, one may struggle with it at the start. First thing to understand is that the timing mid-air is different than on the ground, so when practicing it, one should do it in combos.

Next bit of advice is that you can hold 1 and then press 2 at the correct moment, the game will recognize it as 1+2, thus performing a succesful Cursed Claw. Obviously it's not for everyone, but a lot of players find that helpful

Hit confirmable moves

  • CH d+4,3 - confirm on sound+animation, pretty tight, but very much possible
  • CH d+1,1 - confirm on animation - very easy
  • CH (d/f+1),2,1 - twitch confirm without rage, hit spark confirm with rage
  • b+4,4 - Not super useful due to the move overall being not good, and having it's gimmick be a stay at -8 on block/finish the string for -14 on block mix up
  • CH SCR d+3 - while you can't confirm into extensions, you can confirm by animation the +9 that the move has on CH compared to its normal -3

Not confirmable

  • CH (2),1,3 - delaying last hit will make it blockable
  • CH (2),1,1+2 - delaying last hit will make it blockable
  • CH (1+2),4,4 - can't delay at all
  • CH (f+2),3,4 - can't delay at all
  • d/f+4,1_2 - can't delay at all
  • CH (d+2_TRT) 4,3 - can't delay long enough
  • CH d/b+4,2 - can't delay at all
  • d/b+1+2,1+2 - can't delay for block confirm
  • ws1,2 - feels like it should be confirmable, it isn't
  • CH SCR (3),3,4 - can't delay
  • CH MNT 4,3 - can't delay

Backroll catches

  • d/f+3,4
  • f+4
  • b+2
    • These moves put opponent in FUFA, allowing for a decent backroll catch with ws2, they also shift the axis a lot, making the special wall catch very rare
  • CH d+3
  • SCR (3),(3),4
    • These moves already launch, but near wall the damage is abysmal, can backroll catch with ws2 instead, or guaranteed b+3 into not guaranteed d/f+1,4.
  • CH d/b+2
    • This move pushes the opponent too far for a decent catch. Cursed Claw is the best option, but it is punishable if they wake up correctly
  • u/f+3
    • It is possible with this FUFA to catch with ws2, but it is very difficult, it also does shift the axis too much for the wall catch to be useful.
  • fc d/f+3
    • Puts the opponent into FDFT. ws2 is very hard, dash in b+1 works pretty reliably, but it doesn't hit staying on the ground and siderolls, and thus can be punished. Near wall ws2 or b+3 into d/f+1,4 are good catches.
  • (1+2),(4),4
    • This move already launches, but near wall the damage is abysmal, can backroll catch with ws2 instead, or guaranteed b+3 into not guaranteed d/f+1,4.
  • CH TRT 1
    • TRT d+1+2 is the general guaranteed follow up for 31 damage, but if you delay it, it becomes an inescapable backroll catch, with a chance for a better frame advantage on hit. TRT 1+2 last hit is a catch for 31 damage as well, but it's escapable by sideroll right, but if it connects on standing opponent, can also link into b+3 for 60 total damage. Near wall TRT 2 will be able to launch for a lot of damage, but it doesn't catch siderolls.
