E's Laf++ is a five button fighter that uses numpad notation to explain moves and inputs like many other fighting games.
Specials and supers are either 236 (qcf) or 214 (qcb) motions. No need to worry about dp motions here!
If you're unfamiliar with the terminology used, check this out:
When no directional input is pressed (neutral.)
The directional input to move forward.
Inputting forward twice (66) will cause your character to run or dash.
The directional input to move backwards.
Inputting back twice (44) will cause your character to do an invincible backdash.
The directional input used to make your character crouch.
While crouching, your character can avoid getting hit by certain moves.
The directional input used to make your character jump.
You can jump forward, backwards, or straight up.
Brackets placed around an input means you have to hold the input.
5[A] = Hold 5A
Quarter circle forward motion (down, down + forward, forward.)
Quarter circle back motion (down, down + back, back.)
Different moves can be performed based on the button and direction pressed.
The Fatal Shift button.
Pressing F in combination with a move will give you the Fatal Shift version of that move.
Taunts! They don't do anything gameplay wise.
Each character has a neutral and forward direction taunt.
Walk: Holding forward or backwards makes your character walk. You will gradually gain meter if you walk towards the opponent.
Dash: Double tapping forward makes your character run at increased speed. You gain even more meter by running forward at the opponent.
Backdash: Tapping back twice will cause your character to do an invincible backdash starting on frame 2. Backdashing can be used as a way to make space between you and the opponent, or to get out of certain scenarios. Note that whenever you backdash, you lose one bar of Risk Gauge.
Jump: Pressing up makes you jump. Can jump straight upwards, or diagonally with up + forward or up + backwards.
Double Jump: Every character has access to a double jump which can go forward, backwards, or straight up. Use this to mixup your landing and bait out anti-air attacks! When double jumping behind your opponent, your character will turn around and face them.
High Jump: Pressing down before jumping up executes a higher than average super jump that can be done forward, backwards, or straight up. You'll know you got it right when your character has a blue silhouette on them in the air. You can still double jump or air dash after a high jump!
Air Dash: Tapping forward or backward twice in the air makes your character air dash based on the direction inputted. If you do a back air dash, you will lose one bar of Risk Gauge.
You can only either double jump or air dash while in the air. You cannot do both (unless you're Qdora).
A, B, C, and D perform different attacks based on the button and direction pressed:
- A consists of short but fast jabs to start your pressure with.
- B attacks are medium range pokes that can be used in neutral or to whiff punish.
- C gives slower but more powerful attacks that have big damage and hitboxes.
- D performs unique attacks that have properties such as hard knockdown, ground bounce, etc.
Pressing the correct attack button in combination with a direction input, your character will perform attacks with certain attributes. An example would be every character's Forward A (6A) granting upper body invincibility.
In E's Laf++, all special moves are executed by inputting either a quarter circle forward (236) or quarter circle back (214) in combination with an attack button. Specials vary greatly depending on the character. From projectiles, to lunging attacks, to grenades, and even pizza!
A majority of normals/command normals can be canceled into specials, which can extend pressure and combos!
By spending two bars of Action Gauge, your character can perform much stronger attacks with high bursts of damage. Most supers are invincible on startup, but are typically unsafe on block. On hit, the opponent is unable to use their burst, which makes supers great as guaranteed combo enders. Supers also ignore the armor from Tactical Guard.
Normals can be canceled into each other which is commonly known as Gatlings in other fighting games. A simple example is A to B to C to D (A > B > C > D.)
Some moves won't be able to chain into others, more information can be found on the character pages.
Pressing A and B together (A+B) allows you to grab the opponent while they're blocking. By default you throw the opponent forward, but they can also be thrown backwards if you hold back while inputting A+B. Opponents can be thrown when they're in an armored state too, such as Tactical Guard or one of Alcott's many armored moves. An air throw can be done by pressing A+B while in the air.
Throws are frame 1, as in your character will grab the exact moment A+B is pressed. This can be a very strong offensive and defensive tool if the opponent doesn't space or time their attacks properly. If your throw whiffs however, be prepared for big E's Laf++ counter hit damage.
- Holding back makes your character block moves that hit mid and high.
- Holding down and back makes your character block moves that hit mid and low.
- Holding back while in the air makes your character air block (the character pages will show what moves you can and cannot air block.)
Upon landing from an opponent's attack, your character will automatically get back up based on the direction that was held.
You can either:
- Neutral Ground Tech
- Forward Ground Tech
- Backwards Ground Tech
Your character will hop off the ground and become invincible until they land back on the ground.
Upon getting launched into the air, some moves won't put you in enough hitstun to force a Ground Tech. This lets you tech early in the air by holding any attack button and a direction.
The options for air teching are:
- Neutral Air Tech
- Forward Air Tech
- Backwards Air Tech
Upon doing an Air Tech, your character will be invincible as shown by their transparent look. You will be invincible until you land to the ground. You can act out of this aerial invincibility and perform any air action, but doing so will make you vulnerable again.
Your character will be knocked to the ground, and you cannot Ground Tech or Burst. While on the ground, your character is still vulnerable to getting hit before turning invincible during their getup animation.
Throw Escape & Tech
Throws can be escaped by jumping, backdashing, using a move that makes you airborne, or doing an invincible attack. If an attack and a throw collide on the same frame, the attacking player will always win this interaction. Certain attacks are "Throw Invincible" and cannot be thrown during their startup. As an example, 5A and 2A universally are invincible to being thrown.
You can tech a throw by inputting throw the moment you've been grabbed. Both players will be knocked back and become invincible until they land back to the ground. The window for teching a throw is 14 frames. Please note that you can only tech a normal ground/air throw. Command grabs such as Main's 214B cannot be teched whatsoever.
- Recovering from hitstun/blockstun: 8 frames
- Getting up from a Hard Knockdown: 8 frames (both players)
- After a Ground/Air Tech: 0 frames
Once you recover from a hard knockdown, you're invulnerable to being thrown for a short time. This also applies to the opponent, as your throw will not connect with the opponent after getting up from a hard knockdown. This technically makes both players invincible to throws for 8 frames after a hard knockdown occurs.
