C-Royd Teaches Third Strike: The D.E.D. Option Select

This is a nice option even some intermediate players don't think about.
"This is a meter-gaining option select which is obviously why I had such a basic video about gaining meter last week (

When your attack hits your opponent, you gain more meter than if your opponent blocked or parried it. With this in mind, if you are just shy of 1 meter within a certain range, you can perform DED;
-if your attack hits, you will have more than 1 meter and your super will come out
-if your attack is blocked or parried, you will not have meter and the super will not come out
-yes, if your attack is parried, you can be punished. However, the punish will not be thaaat bad because your super won't come out. So it's not like your opponent parried your super."
