how do you "punish" in this game?

im used to tekken where you can do a counter hit after you block successfully

i noticed this game doesn't have that.


I was facing this hulk online and he was able to hit me constantly. I blocked and tried hitting but he would have some sort of super armor and i wouldn't be able to do anything. So i died without being able to kill one of his characters.

Only certain moves are punishable on block, like Nemesis standing S

Smart players will be able to make almost everything they do safe, so against them you dont "punish" in the way youre thinking of very often. You typically open people up in this game by predicting where theyre going and getting them to block an assist of yours, then mix them up with your point character.

Step 1: Dr. Strange!
Step 2: Opponent attack!
Step 3: "Spell of Vishanti!"
Congraturations, you are punisher!

In tekken there are some moves that are safe and some that are unsafe. In tekken you can use moves that are unsafe on block if risk/reward ratio is good, in this you pretty much want to avoid unsafe on block moves since the punish results in your character dieing. If people make the mistake of letting you block their launcher then those are ussually unsafe as long as you didn't pushblock the launcher.

Hulk's gamma charge is unsafe on block, but it can be canceled into an invincible startup super which costs 1 bar and is also unsafe on block, if they have more meter that can be made safe with a DHC. Basically don't try to punish gamma charge unless your opponent has no meter at all.

Say your opponent likes to throw out LMH with Dante.

(This is all theory btw, not many dantes do LMH blockstings)

IF you pushblock their medium, their H whiffs and you can dash up and punish them,

Pushblocking, XFC, assist calling, etc. all helps you punish.

ok this is against neautral hulk. wait out his super armor and dash in and punish and low block whatever he gives. either way you eat or he eats. better than getting bodied all round.
