Introduction: Chickening is the most hated Technique
              Not only you enemy is getting far but
              He always stays blocked when you hit him/her
              His just waiting for you to do a wrong move
              Or Whiff an attack and then hits you with a 
              Launcher move.
              So I made this guide how to defeat a good 
              Chickener and how to do a best chicken 
              Move. Some might wanna abuse the power of
              The chicken technique so in my own 
              Tournament I will not allow chicken techniques
              Chickeners will automatically disqualified.

1.0 Chickening 
The technique called Chickening is a best Defense style 
It actually give your mind an instinct to block properly
And it saves your game even its an Human enemy or computer
Chickening gives a lot of hard work to do but can result to
A massive great defense and bring every Human/computer down

The only problem with chickening is when you encounter a even
Great chickener a if you encounter a great chickener you 
Might want to alternate your tactics to chicken tag will 
Explain the chicken tag later on..
1.1 Practicing Chicken Tactics
When practicing Chicken Tactics you might want to practice
All of the blocking first.
Blocking are very important to the game it makes the tactics
Even more defensively 
1.2 Hit Properties
Hit properties is one of the main element of the game
More you understand this properties the more improving you 
Will get.

High Range Attacks: Hits standing enemies. High attacks won't
                    Hit a crouching opponent, and will not 
                    Cause damage to enemies in a standing
                    Guard stance.

Mid Body Attacks: Can hit both standing and crouching 
                    Enemies. Will not cause damage to enemies
                    In a standing guard stance.

Low Range Attacks : Hits both standing and crouching enemies.
                    Can be blocked by a crouching guard 
                    Stance, or avoided by jumping over 
1.3 Choosing a Character for chickening
At last the Chickening. When you Chicken you must choose the
Right character for the right kind of chickening you want to

Ex. Devil : good for chickening short range attacks
    Can be easily master his chickening tactics

    True ogre: good for both Long and Short range attacks
    Takes a few time to master
1.4 Chickening Tactics
Great now you choose your character right now you this are 
The sections for every character that you choose

All of the Characters Expect T.Ogre and Jacks

C.Attack : By throwing a simple attack on the enemy be sure 
           To poke first when successfully poke even if its 
           Blocked you are 80% sure that your attack can be
           Guaranteed safe to pull out.
           Ex. Devils twin piston: 1,2,d/f 1,2

           You can also C.Attack by poking low the followed
           By while rising attack
           Ex. Devils twin piston: d+1,ws4,d/f 1,2

C.Blocking: Chicken blocking properly is done by ending an
            C.attack perfectly when doing this kind of 
            Strategy be sure the move you will do is 100%
            Un-expectable by your enemies.
            Ex. Devil: 1,2 d/f 1,2 Block
            When you the C.Blocking you might want to watch
            Out for the throw the throw is one of the game 
            Of the Chickening this is one of the moves you
            Looking forward to do by your enemies. When 
            They do throw attempt be sure to dodge low and
            Then do a WS move.

            Ex. Jin: WS 2

            Other watch out is a low attack practicing a 
            Low blocking is a good idea better than parrying
            Low (I repeat block not parry) you can always
            Pull out a guaranteed a WS move.
            Ex. Hwoarangs: WS 4,4

C.Sidesteping: Sidesteping for a move is one of the main 
               Tactics of the Chickening. When you sidestep
               Be sure you are not to cover a complete step
               Some of the move of your enemies can be an
               Homing sidestep moves so watch out.

               Ex. SS,Backdash

               Knowing where to sidestep is everything when
               You sidestep be sure your in the right foot 
               And the right condition.
               Ex. 1 st player: sidestep D C.Blocking
                   2 nd player: sidestep U C.Blocking

1.5 Applying Chicken Tactics
Just be simple to the enemies not to letting him/her know 
That you are in the Chickening position and you will be in 
Good shape and if you are lucky you will not gain a chicken

Chicken is best when attaching a few Taging Tactics and can
Be assure as you give a determination on you strategy care
Fully and keep on mind to alternate your move and not
Let your enemies to discover your real strategy on the game
Be aware of the enemies always prepare a back up plan

While giving a hard to pulling you down on the ground try to 
Watch your life gauge to when you see your other character
Is in full recover and your current use is in a red color
No matter small the red is tag him out for a rest you might
Need it for the time up judging 
1.6 Chickening For Longer Ranges
This are the list of the longer ranges for Chickeners

T.Ogre, Jack, Gun Jack, P.Jack, Gunryu, Armor King

This are the Characters that contains the long range Chicken
This tactics isn't recommended for the shorter range Charac.
When using the Longer ranges Characters be sure to abuse
There long range ability this are there key for wining the
Game and fully covers there Chicken Tactics.

C.Backing : Chicken backing is recommended for this guys
            When you can C.Backing safely then your just
            Gonna be fine just be aware that when you do
            This there are some delay before you can guard
            Be sure to pay attention to the C.Backing
            When you complete or fully covers the C.backing
            I guarantee a safe pull out move and opponent
            Can whiff an attack when you do this tactics
            80% effectives of C.Backing 
            Ex. T.Ogre : b,b, then f,f,2
            You have do the C.backing then when enemy tries 
            To attack you back you just have enough time
            Block it 

C.Steping : Chicken Steping makes your Character more 
            Accurate but defensibly lows 
            C.Steping is best for longer range when pulling
            Out a big damage such as T.Ogres standing 4
            It comes out fast and damaging as well as
            Jacks 3 stuns enemy
            73% Effectiveness of C.Steping

            Ex. T.Ogres : f,f, then 4,b

            You just the time to block and while you can do a
            Fast C.Backing and you will be just fine

C.Crwal   : Only for T.Ogre, This one the deadliest move for
            Both Ogres but effective for T.Ogre he actually
            Crouch down and wait for enemy to strike high and
            Whiffs do a Ws 3,3,d+3,3 guarantee hit

            Its much effective if T.Ogre do d/f again and 
            Again he can parry a unexpected move or Throw
            An lower punch pull out Cool huh

            Ex. T.Ogre : D,ws,3,3,d+3,3
                T.Ogre : D,d/f,d/f,d/f,d/f. . . . . .

Applying this Tactics are best only for Logranges Characters
Use them well practice this well to you can be the master
Of Chickeners one day  
1.7 Glitches 
There are some glitches in this tactics but they are pretty
Hard to find but an way here is the list of the glitches 
Hope you hunt them nicely

Devil : C.backing,5+3+4,5,5,5,5,5,5,5. . . . .
        This will make Devil Tag on mid air and when he does
        The character change is on the ground but there are
        Some lasers animation on the Tag it does not cause
        Any damage :( 

Hwoarang : 3+4,2+4
           Hwoarang start to throw but nothing happens
           This feature is fixed on Tekken 4 :)

Jin : EWGF when the opponent Tags out the Lighting will
      Disappear :( 

Hwoarang : 1+2,3+4,3+4
           Fox steping just for some show off guys out there
