When you have knocked down an opponent, either by kick or push/pull, what is your favorite move to kill/attack him?
Now, at first this seems to be a n00b question, but there are several things to be taken in consideration.
The most obvious answer is "blue stance backstab" or "medium stance backsweep" or "heavy stance backsweep".
Well, a lot of people consider this tactic as "lame". I've even talked to people who answered the above question with "well, I let him get up again, cause thats the honorable thing to do".
However, are there maybe other moves that you do, maybe if you dont have the time to do a backstab? Or because you don't want to be called "lame", you use another move than backstab?Don't mind getting into the basics of saber combat here, which move serves you best? Rather a downward chop? Or a sweep?
To be honest with you, my dear community fellows, I am having some trouble with this issue. Whenever I knock someone down, I run up to him and try to whack him. I rarely can take as much advatage out of this situation as I want to. Sometimes my opponent even blocks my swing while getting up and I wasn't able to hit him at all while he was lying down! Or I run into him performing a heavy stance sweep and he gets up and hits ME because I'm right in the middle of the swing, thus not able to block.
So what I am really looking for is:
- give me a hint about successfully performing a push/backstab combo. Do the different knock-down tactics (push, pull, kick) work the same with each backstab move (blue, red, yellow)?
BTW: I promised, once I've learned it, not to spam the move
- other effective ways to hit a knocked down person, maybe no 1-hit kill, but some nice damage
