    if you hit someone normally who is in a special stance in VF4(like Lei during his tiger stance or what not), does this count as an MC?

    i remember fooling around with the CPU with Akira and after Lei went into his crane stance and did nothing, i went for the LBF and it ended up making him go through a drop crumple.

    I'm pretty sure stances don't cause MC, but some of them are "unsteady" positions, ... when lei does the standing on one foot stance, a single punch knocks him down, as if you'd hit him during a hop. Ditto shun's handstand, he falls immediately to his back if anything hits him.

    If you get a special kuzure down animation, you probably just interrupted lei's attack at the last second. I think those only happen if the attack KD's anyway, not due to stance stuff.

    I'm sorry, but what is MC exactly? I can't find that abbrev. anywhere.

    MC = major counter (aka "interrupt" in most fighting games), i.e. hitting the opponent during execution phase of their move. A less common term is mC, for minor counter, i.e. hitting them during the recovery of their move. Typically, MCs give about 50% extra damage, stun the opponent for longer, and sometimes cause KD, floats, etc.

    Actually I think special stances do cause a MC when hit out of.

    Take Lei's crane stance or [IN] stance and use Aoi's squatting double palm move. Lei will crumble when hit.

    so getting hit when in stance is a MC

    In the Flamingo Stance, if Sarah is hit she just puts her leg down and reverts to her regular stance, no MC.
