If you have super already, you can always do that, but for the most part, hit-confirming is always a better option, especially that if they block your j. mk, it’s easier to confirm a jab rather than a strong; you have more time to do it usually, when you do either cr. strong or cr. fierce in place of the jab, you’re being preemptive and even if the mk doesn’t hit, you’ll still do it, where you’re pretty much committed to the spiral :/.
Very true. Offline I can confirm j.mk fairly well and go to a poke string if blocked or a heavier normal on hit. But with super stocked I like to try hit it with little to no damage scaling. I like having beefier damage whenever possible.
I even question whether it’s worth it to do the cr.strong>drill>super anymore. It takes way too long to build meter as rose now. Unless it’s at the start or end of the round, i wouldn’t waste all my meter. With no Ultra to fall back on, one knockdown good spell doom. Unless you’re sure you can get around those two facts, than i’d rather just end it with a spiral or fireball fadc blah blah blah.
