I know there is another thread about this but I figured I’d start a thread dedicated to it. I’ve been practicing this thing for a couple days now and haven’t made any progress. So my question is, to people who can actually pull this thing off, what is the most successful/easiest method?
I’ve been mostly trying
down (x2) > jab > down > ppp
but I’ve heard mainly people saying one down, jab, down twice, ppp. JR’s method makes no sense to me . I really want to get this combo down because the damage potential is huge and it seems like a really practical combo.
I haven’t gotten JR’s method to work. Is that really JR by the way?
The way I do it is pretty consistent and I dont find it too hard - I’ve even dared to do it in tourneys. When Akuma lands from the hurricane I tap down once, then jab (this is the bit where I mess up, sometimes mistiming the jab) then down, down, PP - I’m sure its easier to do PP rather than PPP. Remember to tap down twice as soon as you hit jab - almost as if they were at the same time.
i’ve got this one down about 90% of the time, however it seems certain characters are impossible to hit with the kkz. i can get the shotos, twins, remy, chun, ibuki, alex, Q etc. but I am having a lot of trouble with makoto and someone else i can’t remember. is it possible on them? i thought makoto had kind of a large hitbox
Does that methond really work. I couldn’t understand JR either so I just figured lp–> KKZ which I guess after several tries I got to work. The lighting fast input isn’t needed? You can buffer it? SOB! Oh well, I guess I can say I can do the lp–>KKZ set up without buffering it, whatever thats worth.
ground lk hurricane > jab > kkz. if you hit the air hurricane right, its pretty easy to land the kkz, and you don’t even need to do a jab, although i can’t usually tell if i hit them right. that and the looks on peoples faces when you don’t go for the srk :wow:
well, when i first started learning this, i found trying to go for the entire combo really overwhelming, so i broke it into parts. just get to the part up until the jab, while pressing down after the hurricane. i found this to be a challenge on its own from trying to teach people this, ive found the tendency is to try to press down to olate so you end up doing a crouching jab, so do it pretty much right after you execute the hurricane. once you’ve got that down, integrate the kkz in. all i can say about that is press :d: :d: :3p: as fast as you can. you won’t get it right away, and you probably won’t even get it after an hour if you are anything like me, but keep at it, because its definitely worth the work!
how come the down LP doesnt come out as a cr lp? is it pressed at the same time as down or shortly after? i dont know which way is easier, pherai’s or naz’s. how come the down LP doesnt come out as a cr lp? is it pressed at the same time as down or shortly after? i dont know which way is easier, pherai’s or naz’s. naz, when i tap down once right when akuma lands from the hurricane, he crouches down, and in your video i dont see you crouching after u land the hurricane.
well, you are really tapping down as the hurricane is ending, so the down doesnt come out as a crouch. there should be some significant spacing between the first down and the jab. i wish i had some software to show my joystick motions. maybe once i put my arcade stick back together, i’ll make a video like naz’s
