"Golden Punching" and it's Tactical usage FAQ.

    First and foremost, golden punching exists in Mk1-MK4 (no golden punching exists in any MK after MK4), and in all playable versions of them, ALL homeport's and arcade versions, mame, etc.

 
USE:

Golden Punching is for baiting opponents, close range tactics, buffing combos and/or special moves out of other moves and/or blocking tactics, keeping you pro-active in whatever tactics you are employing.




EFFECT's of Golden punching:

Golden Punching creates a "Insta-block" effect.

ex:
If your opponent is scorpion and you are Golden punching and he tries to teleport punch you,golden punching INSTANTLY blocks the teleport punch no matter when he does. thus shutting down his teleport punch almost entirely (if done in a smart manner). same with his spear at close range. these moves are punishable instantly when you golden punch. the opponent thinks you are "open" for attack but in fact you are not, so they will go in for an attack thinking that you are open. once they attack if you golden punch, you can instantly punish them.

ex#2: If your opponent is Liu Kang, you can inch your way forward with these punches, these pucnhes will shutdown his fly kick COMPLETELY, if he fly kicks you while you are golden punching, it is either instantly blocked or aaHP'd out of the air.

after time of using this, you will start to learn how you can use it and when. you will also learn the aaHP possibilities of using them as well.







HOW TO DO "Golden punching"

1. for HP or LP, simple start to punch as fast as you can. WHILE you are in the process of non-stop punching, press block. But never stop punching when you go to press block. in other words, you never stop punching while press block. but you need to start the punches before you proceed to press block.

if you have done this correctly, you will notice the ability to punch while you are pressing block at the same time, normally this is not possible at all.


2. simultaneous HP and LP, start punching with this combination (dookies home brew,lol), HP,LP,HP,LP,HP,LP,(press block while punching)continue to HP,LP,HP,LP,HP,LP, until your golden punching has done its job. you detrmine what you are using it for in your own situation. when i say "do its job" i mean, punish whatever move you instantly block. simultaneously using HP and LP increase your chances of punishing opponent. more punches, more protection,highs and mids. ex. kang can no longer fly-kick you, scorp can no longer spear or teleport on you, most of the time.




HOW TO PUNISH GOLDEN PUNCHES BEING USED AGAINST YOU:

1. know what to look for
2. dont attack at close range
3. know when opponent is TRUELY open for attack and when they are not really open for attack
4. NO JUMPING AT THEM (this is aaHP to combo paradise for them)
5. Know the difference between normal jabbing vs Golden punching, they can be mixed up against you causing total confusion.



WHAT DEFEATS GOLDEN PUNCHING?

1. nothing, unless a sweep. thats why you have to hold DDB while you are golden punching to prevent a sweep because the only actual move that beats Golden Punching is a sweep.
2. chip damage
3. staying away from opponent






UP CLOSE GOLDEN PUNCHING TACTICS:

This is where this shit is put to use!!

There are so many combinations and ways to use Golden Punching. Here is a good example of close kombat jabbing tactics mixed with Golden punching tactics, please see the benefits:


ex:

(start with normal jabs then go to golden punching at close range)

1. lp,lp,lp,lp,lp,hp,lp,hp,lp(block)hp,lp,hp,lp,hp,lp

see picture, once you make the transition into golden punching AFTER up-close jabbing by putting them into 1 variation, 1 of 2 thing will happen:



1. Either you will continue to golden punch until they attack (usually a low tow or low kick). ONCE THEY ATTACK YOUR GOLDEN PUNCHING YOUR GOLDEN PUNCHING GETS CANCELLED INSTANTLY WITH A BLOCK.
2. OR they will try to escape by jumping away, thus getting punched, they will not be able to jump away from your golden punching at closest range possible, cant be done at all.




*there is a learning curve for this, this isnt easy at all, try it!!!!

So you can hold diagonal down and back while doing the golden punches to block sweeps.  I was wondering how those guys were blocking my sweeps without actually doing a crouched block.

That's what we like to call a "death punch" or DP, I'm sure you've seen people talk about it. It's a glitch!  Cheesy


Yeah, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what it was called. "Death Punch." Thanks.
