*NEW(?) TECH* Forward Jump
« on: July 03, 2014, 05:16:15 pm »
I pulled this out in some of my last matches at CEO recently after discovering how to make it consistent two nights prior. I've heard people say stuff about this in passing a few times before, but now I've pinpointed the method and wanted to make it public. Calling it the Forward Jump is sufficient since most characters can't actually do this anyway, lol.

The method is simple but relatively time-consuming:
1) Perform Reverse Feral Stance. (FS, then plink D~K to perform FS again out of the standard reverse dive out of FS. You should be in FS facing backward.)
2) Reverse dive out of RFS. You should be facing forward as if you were to dive normally.
3) Execute Cornered Beast.

The effect should be that Redacted's X velocity is flipped when executing CB, hence causing her to move toward the opposite wall. Hence, she appears to be jumping forward.

You cannot kick out of Forward Jump, and it's highly unlikely you'll reach the opposite wall because of her fall speed, but it's a surprisingly fast way to close distance in a way Redacted normally just can't.

Nice find!

A couple days ago this happened in one of my games, and I can't remember who my opponent was, but neither of us could figure out why or how it happened. Thanks for explaining it!

I've had at least a couple of people mention it to me in the past and dismissed it as some weird glitch or positional nuance. Turns out it's very controllable and may have some practical use.

Sounds like they were jumping to conclusions.

Not everyone knows how to look before they leap.
