In multiplayer, Usually when I notice a player jumping from above and is about to ground strike i try to avoid it by simply jumping off the ground but usually i end up getting the impact of the ground strike and getting hurt/killed.
Is there any way to avoid ground strikes at close range or is it pointless to try to jump when he strikes?
After a few tries at the multiplayer I found the best way to avoid the ground strike was to not play the versus mode.
Seriously though just stay on the move. If your standing still or staying on the ground your probably causing some pretty hilarious ground strike pile ups. If you are jumping constantly that only gives someone a tiny window to land one.
