Why is it so hard to link up the c.short, c.short, c.jab ,c.forward to fireball?
I have been practicing for months and can never get this out on a regular basis. What do I need to look for or how do you guys know when its time to press the button. I get stuck between c.jab to c.foward.
Also with the forward fierce to c.fierce uppercut to fierce shoryuken like daigo. Any tips would be great. I practice like a hour a day on this and I just can’t do it. Only way is turning on the turbo button, haha. Just pisses me off when I miss the link.
any and all links… practice on autoblock. Do a jab, then do the forward. If it doesn’t come out, do it slower. If it is blocked, do it faster. Solar plexus strike to crouching fierce I plink to make it easier but I practiced it the same way. I hold down forward for the crouching fierce because then you only need to do down, down forward fierce again for the shoryu.
You can’t use a visual cue for this type of shit IMO… you are trying to do something with 1/30th second precision. It has to be 100% muscle memory.
About c.short, c.short, c.jab ,c.forward. Just drop that, it’s worthless.
Useful links for Ryu are the following :
cr.lk, cr.lp > SRK
cr.lk, cr.lp, cr.lp > SRK / frame trap with cr.mk > hadouken
cr.lk, cr.lp, cr.hp > Tatsu / Ex Tatsu /
cr.lk, cr.lp, cr.mp > Tatsu on standing opponents / Ex Tatsu / hadouken
Some pokes, since cr.mp is pretty descent.
cr.mp > cr.mk
cr.mp > cr.mp
About Solar plexus combos
First of I’d recommend you just try SP into cr.lp, it’s a 2 frames link just as cr.lp into cr.mp. You’ll get the momentum on when to press that button, like sakeido said it’s 100% visual memory based.
From there you can p-link into cr.mp or cr.hp, the timing will be the same.
I think the best way to practice is the following, in the training room:
put the character on auto block and take stun off.
Crossup with j.mk > c.lk xx c.lp > hp.srk
I’m telling you, if you master this basic combo you will win so many more matches. I am still learning and mastering combos that are more complex but if you leanr that combo, and you learn to hit confirm, you will never wiff an srk, which is a common way to eat a 500 dmg combo.
If they block the j.mk and they mash srk then learn from it and punish them the next time, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been down to a splinter of health and hit confirmed that combo into ultra and won, or continuously applied pressure with that crossup string until I forced a mistake.
Hit confirming is more important that any combo because you can play aggressive and safe at the same time.
This. You’ve been practicing a useless combo. It’s only good for when you forget to do something else or as a block string or frame trap. If you already connect a cr short, cr jab just do cr hp xxx tatsu or even just a srk.
yea plinking is hard, but i can see how the punches come out faster when its done properly. one of the reasons why I practice that combo above is because I tend to mash the short and jabs when I am upclose. I need to stop mashing. I see how plinking can also help the solar plexus combo come out. Looks like a week of training or so to do
Anyways, you might want to try double tapping as well. I actually find it easier, but its all preference. Plinking is must for pad players though as I can’t see how they can double tap all the buttons.
