Pound for pound the most devastating attacks in fighting games, super combos are naturally meant to carry both high stakes and high rewards.

Where players previously just had to keep track of one super per potential opponent, that number is up to three now. What's more, the nuanced Drive System makes pulling off the best punishes a little more pinpointed and so it's likely you've missed out on round or even game-wining punishes for lack of on the spot knowledge.

To prevent Sento Stance from getting too out of hand, the developers added a few countermeasures that players can take advantage of against an opposing Kenshi player using Sento Stance. However, it turns out that there may be an unintentional way of circumventing one of the main ways of dealing with the stance.
