Corner

Combo Theory

Try to end every combo with sliding knockdown for Oki. Keep track of of your Ginyu Force rotation when comboing and understand that combo damage will sometimes have to be sacrificed for better Oki. Jeice 5S > Guldo 5S > SuperDash does more damage, yeah, but even if you end with SKD you only have Recoome for Oki, who is too slow on his own and will need an assist to cover his startup.
