I may have discovered that Juri has a guaranteed counter against Vega’s claw dive. I need a Vega player to hop online and test it out with me on PSN.
I’m not really asking for a full match–just someone who can spam claw dive mixups over and over until we know for sure whether this works.
My PSN name is to the left.
Well, from what I can tell, Vega players, there’s good news and bad news.
Bad news: Juri’s cr.MK is a COMPLETE counter for claw dive shenanigans. The move puts her at such a low angle that she can make the attack whiff utterly. If she times it exactly perfectly, she can even follow up with EX/HK Pinwheel for a guaranteed knockdown.
Good news: This is EXCEPTIONALLY hard to do consistently, and nearly impossible with EX Claw Dive. EX Claw Dive comes out so fast that Juri only has a few frames to pull off the cr.mk. If her timing is off even by a hair, she’s taking the full attack.
So, in conclusion, you might want to avoid Claw Dive shenanigans against Juri unless you can keep them ambiguous or until you have enough EX saved to thoroughly test her execution.
