Aegis Trouble

The Situation:

When Urien juggles you in the corner with a tackle and cancels into Aegis reflector, he hits you with a cross up knee drop while the reflector hits you from the front to cause an unblockable situation. From there he gets to launch you again, and if he has meter, set up another unblockable which will most likely give him the round.

Eatin' an Aegis

Damage Limitation:

There is no way of really getting out of this cleanly, but there is some damage limitation. If you down parry the reflector on wake up, the knee drop will cross you up and hit you high during the low parry. Since both hits happen at the same time, you can only parry one of them, so you get hit by the knee drop. However, since you parried the reflector, that hit is nullified and the knee drop hits you cleanly. The knee drop causes a knock down so you escape being hit by the reflector.
After being knocked down, don’t quick recover. Stay down, and when you get up, even if Urien hits you high or low, the reflector does not stay out long enough for him to continue and launch you again. This is by no means perfect, but you limit the damage by only taking the knee drop, rather than a whole Aegis and a second set of shoulders.

However this only works in the corner. Mid-screen, Urien doesn’t need the knee drop to crack his unblockable out, so you have to guess parry. Urien generally only does stand forward, or low short, so the timing is generally 3 parries and then throw out of the reflector. as tough as that’ll be anyway, you have to guess whether he goes high or low. and further if you escape the mid-screen set up a few times, Urien might smarten up and just throw you into the reflector.

Q and Urien scare lions

This should never happen

Mid-screen unblockables are only really going to happen unless you fucked up enough for it. Corner Aegis however happens much more often. the surefire way of escaping an Aegis setup is prevention, much like against Yun. Locking out all doors of opportunity for their meter gain gets you out of the situation entirely, but if it happens its good to know you don’t have to eat the whole of it.
