I’m trying to get into KoF 2k2 (or really any kof, but I find 2k2 to be more fun, if I’m wrong please PM with the more played Kof that I should learn to play in, 2df preferably if it’s an online suggestion.)
Anyway, I got down the whole roll, short jump stuff, but other than that I’m almost completely green.
Apparently I put up the most fight with Yuri; no combos, but do frantic fast most damage. I was considering learning Leona and Mature or Vice as well. (I used to be pretty handy with Vice , but I forgot the throw chains, so she’s useless right now)
So then in a broader spectrum, how does the combo system go down in this? I’ve noticed the supers have almost 1 frame invincibility and not much else, which is way lower than I’m used to. (Street Fighter fanboy here).
You’re the one that showed me the few Vice chains I knew…what like a year ago?
I’ll be sure to watch those vids.
Also, I’m a keyboard player, and I used an emulated style of Street Fighter buttons to play. (YU are punches and HJ are kicks). Should I use the four button spread for this game, cause it seems to be iffy using the way I have it now.
Fireballs recover much faster than before…improve normals in many ways, improved f+B over the other games. Crystal bit is invincible at startup, her best anti-air. It’s too hard to get in most of the time.
I was wondering, is there any good website/forum dedicated to king of fighters (and in particular, game strategy), apart from shoryuken that seems capcom-centric? I.e. it seems snk fans don’t gather here, apart from few exceptions.
And, is there a detailed tier list somewhere, like the one in the kof98 thread? Apart from Athena Billy Choi being top. Are Angel and MayLee considered high tier?
well most asian tier lists have ABC at the very top, while most other regions put may lee and angel at the top, with ABC below them. i think the reason for this is because japan didn’t play it as hardcore and didn’t get around to really exposing the meat of angel and may lee’s gameplay.
uh, learning curve shouldn’t factor into tier lists. they are based on tourney results and maybe matchup data (which is harder to obtain since this is a team game). its simple; angel and maylee weren’t winning tournaments because people didn’t know how to play them back then. a lot of their shit was discovered in other territories after japan released that tier list.
