I want to get decent at throw escapes. There is no better feeling than escaping a throw (maybe because it's so rare for me.) I've been through the PS2 trial many times, and even searched VFDC and read every friggin post about it. More often than not the posts are about TTE's, sabaki-TE, R-TE, or other obscure tactics. Seems that the only time I escape throws is when I'm trying to do one myself. I want to know what some of the experienced players' tendencies are. 1. What situations do you use throw escape? Do you guys always TE or DTE after having a guaranteed throw move blocked? Do you always add the guard part in (G-TE/G-DTE, respectively)? Ever do these in a non-guaranteed situation? 2. What's the best time to evade G-TE? I ALWAYS do an evade attack or float starter on a MC dodge. Doing this, I can be thrown or whacked with circular moves. Is this another guessing game, or should I recognize when to evade attack/float and when to evade G-TE? Seems like the evade attack/float has greater reward than Evade G-TE. Am I missing something? I can do the trials fine, but my mindset as to when to do perform a certain defensive move during a match isnt there yet. One thing I HAVE learned is to wait for the RECOVERY of a move to enter the TE's. I was trying it too often during late execution phase.
