I recently tried to learn to piano cr.hp xx hk.ll… in hindsight it was a waste of time because how many times am I gonna try and loop this in a match? This lead me to try and practice other stuff like hit confirm combos into super with random block turned on.
How do you guys spend your practice time in training mode?
I wouldn’t say that learning cr.HP xx HK Lightning Legs is a waste of time. Chun has a bunch of offensive options from it, plus it costs no meter (in fact you gain almost an entire EX bar from it), it does a lot of damage, and a lot of stun.
If you are consistent with the link into sweep, it also gives you an untechable knockdown, which is always good.
If you’re not confident about the link into sweep, you can do cr.HP xx HK Legs [MK Legs] > cr.LP > st.LP > f.st.HP. This is an easy, easy, easy link getting the jab off cr.HP xx Lighting Legs since it leaves you at +7, and after that you just autopilot into Chun’s meterless BnB.
You can also link EX Legs straight off the frame advantage and have it combo, then follow up with U2. If not, linking cr.LK is easy and then cancelling into EX Legs should be cake too.
My favorite one so far is:
[In the corner]
cr.HP xx HK Legs [MK Legs] > cr.HP xx HK Legs [MK Legs] > cr.HP xx EX Kikoken xx Level 2 Focus Attack [Crumple] xx Dash Forward > [Wait] df+LK > Headstomps
Couldn’t agree with you more. What I meant was that learning the piano method of that combo was a waste of time. I slide that mofo for days. The reason I wanted to learn the piano in the first place was so I could plink the cr.hp for an extra frame.
practicing basic stuff really… my execution is awful.
i mess up cr.lk x 2 to EX legs more than i should… and i don’t know why but sometimes my timing is off for the juggle U2. there are times when it comes out too late and i miss or i finish it up too early and the kikoushou just doesn’t come out at all.
cl.hk to EX legs is giving me problems too… hmm… =\
Practicing the c.hp x legs, c.hp x legs, c.hk piano is despair in its purest form.
The longer you practice the further down the success rate goes due to fatigue.
But at the same time you’re thinking "I was landing this more just a few minutes ago, I can do it!"
After a while you realize that the training isn’t paying off anymore, so to top off the session you decide to atleast land it twice in a row.
I’ve made it like a daily routine to practice the c.hp x legs loop, I really want to get consistent with it so that I can start working on my meterless playstyle more.
Also I figured this one out today c.lp~hk~mk~lk~mk~hk.
Index finger on lp, ringfinger on hk then slide it back and forth.
Still feels weird, but it also feels as if this is the “easiest” way to cancel c.lp into hk legs.
