Note: This PSA Assumes you are using head-on Fortune although most beginner Fortune's usually stick with head-on first. This thread's purpose is to note common mistakes beginner Fortune players make. (Maybe one about Fortune misconceptions would be cool one day) Other note: This doesn't mean you can't add common headless mistakes. But I have to ask that you please note which form. I have seen beginner Fortunes do this constantly and frankly it's pissed me off enough to write this, *ahem* STOP DOING CAT SLIDE AFTER REKKA Seriously, stop. This is not safe and is -10 on block even PW can punish this. PW!!!! (It's a 2f punish window for pw but hey) STOP DOING EL GATO AFTER REKKA This isn't even a mixup it's not a blockstring and characters can jab you out. Super, call assist, chicken block, etc. and most importantly, AFTER YOUR REKKA HAS BEEN PUSHBLOCKED DON'T DO ANYTHING RASH LIKE CAT SLIDE OR EL GATO This is because of the previous reasons but now they have absolute guard and el gato will likely whiff and slide will be the freest punish thanks to PBGC IF YOUR NORMAL WAS PB'D GAUGE YOUR DISTANCE This part makes me sad because some players will still autopilot rekka and that rekka whiffs and IT SENDS FORTUNE TO THE OPPONENT for an easy punish. You can do many things when this [space where rekka will whiff] happens: Nothing, L Fiber, a secret thing maybe I dunno about. 2LK 5MK IS NOT A BLOCKSTRING (In beta not in retail) I dunno why but this can either benefit you or ruin you. @Mike_Z why? ;__; (I actually know why it's because of the 5MK buff 2LK nerf maybe but it also seems to have messed up the usual blockstring) edit: I didn't test varying distances but only up close and it works in retail but not beta it was fixed IF YOUR 5MK WAS PB'D BE VERY CAREFUL This is because 5MK is ridiculously easy to PBGC and when you do 5HP or whatever after it you will eat a super or anything really. Maybe do rekka after the first hit of 5MK oh and use L rekka in blockstrings whenever you feel you have to as it's +/-0 on block ON THE FIRST HIT ONLY the next reps are not safe or safe-ish but minus on block I think that's all I remember. Maybe that helps. Edit: pretty much all of these assume head-on fortune btw.
