Haven't seen a thread for the trials of KOFXIII so here it is :p

Has anyone completed all of the trials yet? How on earth do you do Athena's lvl 7 (or 8), it's the one with the 3 HCB x 2 supers in the combo.

    Imo you will need at least 3 months or more to complete all trials (playing casually) even if you are a vet, haven't seen anyone yet with all the trials completed (even the combo freaks out there).

    I've completed kyo, Terry and Clark Trials, working now on Elizabeth and Leona.

    Props to anyone who does this. What a huge time waster.. I've completed around 75% of all trials and that's enough for me.

    Shen's mission #5. How do I link the the QCF B after the two QCF D's?
  • danimedanime dat swede. Joined: Posts: 182
    There's nothing special about it. You just do it after the HK ones and shouldn't be any problem. But you'd want to hit the 2 D's early, so that you juggle high enough to hit the last B.

    I'm all done with King, Shen, Maxima and only got trial 6 left for Elizabeth. For the rest of the cast I'm around 5-8 trials in, from when I was trying them all out to see what characters I liked. I haven't spent that much time trying to get them all done, because it's something I'll do later on when I'm more experienced with the system. But comparing the trials in this game to others, I feel like it's best to try and clear one character at a time. You'll probably pick up small things, or just get more used to the character, along the way. In SF4 for example, where the trials are a lot easier, there might just be 1-2 trials per character that you can't get done, and they might not be linked at all to previous trials, so you'll just move on and do them later.

    That's how I'm planning on doing it later at least, because when you finally figure out trial X, you can probably use a lot from that one for trial Y.

    So im stuck on trial five I believe it is of Leona's trials... Charge move to charge move confuses me greatly with the timing / buffering necessary. I try 1 to 7 then 7 to 6 for the inputs to keep the back charge going for the second move but either im doing it very wrong or its just that precise. Am I missing something here entirely?

    The last part instead of 7 hold 4, it works for me, try to keep holding 4 while you do the first part (1 to 7 or 8) and press 6.

    Sorry for the double post lol.

    anybody know what's up with Takuma's trial 5? i can't get the 646pp to connect at the end. i messed around doing his 16k, one of the jumps into k, and then it connected but i can't repeat it for the life of me. is it a super hop or a regular hop k? i've been mostly doing it in the corner but i've tried mid screen too and no dice.
    EDIT
    alright. i've been doing this trial for like two days and decided to post here for help and then i finally get it. it reminds me of sf4 where the characters are coming down from a jump attack and they land before it LOOKS like they do. this whole fucking time i was doing the 464pp too late. it's got to be done as soon as possible. sheesh.

    I finished every trial right before New Year's Eve, and completed EX Kyo (thanks to the PSN delay) and Mr KARATE's trials yesterday. Sometimes I feel like I've actually gotten the hang of a combo after trying one of them for 1 or 2 hours and other times I feel like I lucked up and I never try them again haha...

    As for that Athena trial, it might be the hardest in the game... Maybe. I'm sure it at least took me the longest to get. At first, for the beginning DP into air super, I tried HCB~F A for the DP to come out and then just one more HCB and A for the air super to come out. For the second DP to air super, I would do the same thing. But sometimes I'd do the Super Cancel too fast and get her super on the ground, so I'd delay it slightly, then I'd get a Drive Canceled Psycho ball after the DP for some reason. I think, since I'm using the Dualshock, I would do the HCB~F A and only do a QCB~A afterwards. Other times, while rarely, I'd get a Drive Canceled Psychic Throw (command grab). That was me doing the HCB~F motion incorrectly and doing a HCB~HCF motion. Again, I blame the Dualshock D-Pad...

    Regardless, that method didn't work for me after trying it for... way too long. So, what I did to avoid both problems was, and I don't know how easy it is on the Arcade Stick (didn't try it yet), but I did a clockwise 720 motion for the air super. So, I did the DP regularly, and that motion helped me start the 720 motion as fast as possible. The length of the 720 motion was long enough for Athena to get into the air so I didn't get the grounded super and complicated enough to avoid a Psycho Ball or Super Psychic Throw to come out. After trying this, all I had to work on was timing. I can do the trial consistently, in fact, by using this method.

    Also, I slightly delayed the Phoenix Arrow in the trial after doing the Air F~LK. I think it allowed the follow-up kick she does to connect more consistently. Anyway, I hope this helps, since I didn't try the trial on a stick yet...

    I can't believe that I'm still stuck on Elizabeth's trial 2. I can't get the command grab to cancel the command dash. I do it early, and nothing comes out during the dash. I do it late, and it whiffs. Is the cancel window really that small? It's only the second trial.

    As you said the cancel window is really small, try to go neutral after the dash, this should work, your must be really fast here,

    Im on K #8 right now. I havent really tried it much yet but it will probably take me awhile. His trial 7 probably took me at least an hour... but that was mostly due to the fact I could get the HD cancel down for the first part... cr. b, cr. b, st. b, HD Cancel, st. C, f. A... for some reason the timing felt really really awkward for me. The part after that was easy though.

    EDIT:
    Also, protip. If you're ever doing anything where you keep getting DP on accident, like say for instance a dash HCF, end the motion in :uf: because a DP in XIII cannot end in :uf:, so you'll never get it.

    The easiest way to perform 2 uppercut motions in a row is :hcb::f:+(P or K), :d::df:+(P or K). This way even if you go to far up to forward for the 2nd motion it wont come out as a super.

    This worked for me though in order to not get super I actually do dp+A, dp, end in upfoward + a seems to be slightly more consistent. Thanks!

    Yeah, the trials are ridiculous if you haven't played a KOF game before (like me). I've been playing this game for 2 days (currently on day 3) and have reached trial 9 with Kyo, Iori and Athena. I'm trying to do them one by one, but as a Street Fighter player I'm not used to pulling off combos 10 seconds long. So far, though, I love this game. It doesn't reward scrubbiness and it feels rewarding pulling off a juggle combo.

    Glad to see this thread! I'm new to KOF and have been tackling the trials--was able to do all ten for Elisabeth, Terry, Hwa, and Benimaru so far. Started Raiden's last night and can't figure out how in the world to do charge :db: :f::p: xx charge :db::f::2p:. The demo shows the EX charge coming out very quickly after the first one, not long enough to charge again. Also, the first trial forcing you to hold :k: then standing :p:, I can't get the LP to connect at all, no matter how I time it after the kick is released. Anyone out there done these yet? :)

    Alright, so has anyone done Ash's later trials? I have missions 8-10 left for Ash, and 5 other trials until I'm done... But I just can't do the d,u+HK, b+HK, d,u +LK, b+HK, d,u+LK in Ash's Mission Lv08. I know you don't have to charge d,u, but is there an easier way to do this than doing the full commands? Is there a buffer or a shortcut for doing this part?

    Also, as I mentioned, I've done all of the trials except about 8 of them (3 of them are Ash.) If anyone needs help with them, I'd be glad to help out, just post on here, and/or tweet to me @ShadowHado. Tweeting is the best way to get my attention in case I don't check this thread often enough. Feel free to post on here and tweet me to look at your post as well. I will try to post all help here so that it helps everyone.

    Well that was quick, I figured out what my problem was already lol.

    You CANNOT do that part of the combo to a standing opponent. They MUST be airborne. Once I realized that, I started using b,f+LK+HK to launch him, and started practicing the combo. I haven't gotten two full reps of it yet, only 1.6 lol.

    Anywho, if you guys need help, I'm still willing to assist!

    The hardest part was for me is the D,U + C/D cancel into B,F + C/D but i found a shortcut, i'm still trying the last part though.

    Anyways have you done mature's 10th trial yet? i can't do the super before the oponent goes down, it seems that you must calculate DP + A + A just before you touch the ground, 9th trial was a damn nightmare too the opener requires strict timing and you can get some accidental cancels if you don't know how to do a perfect DP motion, the last part is more easy.

    ****EDITED**** 01/28/12 - Fixed the command for Mature's super. It ends with K, not P.

    Yes I have, I actually JUST did Mature's 9 and 10 last night!

    First of all, you have to delay the 2nd A on dp+A,A as much as possible. What I did when you have to do DP+A,A, Super, was DP+A, QCB+A (delayed), then HCF+K as you touch the ground. You want the very last F+Kick to come out just slightly after landing. I've also been able to do it the normal way (dp+A, A, super) by practicing on a standing opponent, but it's very rare and I couldn't do it without the buffer during the actual trial.

    On a standing opponent, you can practice this part (dp+A,A, Super) all by itself and it will connect (BARELY) if done properly. I did this for quite a while last night to learn the timing of the delayed A input.

    Also, don't forget that to Max Cancel, you have to do it as she slams them into the wall, not when she first grabs them.

    ~~Nate

    P.S - I just got a few more done, so all I have left now is Joe's 10th (I REALLY hate how random his Super's extra bounce hit at the end of the animation seems to be) and Ash 8, 9, and 10! I know I will eventually get lucky on the Super with Joe, but Ash's trials really make me wonder if I will complete them all. Would be such a shame to be completely stuck with 3 or less trials left, and have them all be from Ash! Boooourns.

    Just practice the quick hop you must press the buttons very gently, you must connect the DP when you are really sure that your opponent is almost in the ground after that the combo will be easy.

    You know, I don't know if this is the same "easy one" I had problems with, but there was a really "early" trial for someone that seemed so basic and yet for some reason it took me forever to do it.

    My suggestion would be to maybe try doing it on a pad/analog controller instead of a joystick, if that's what you're using. You have to the HCB pretty quickly after the LK, and this should help you do it faster. Think of the LK, HCB+K like doing a normal into special in SF, but you just have two cr.LK before that. Otherwise if you're determined to do it on a stick, try doing cr.LK, cr.LK, F+LK, HCB+LK. Pressing F+LK may help you buffer the HCB a little faster.

    Hope that helps!

    Hey, I'm sure you noticed this, but the command is DP+A, QCB+A, HCF+K, not P. My mistake, I thought her super was a punch button.

    Also, I just messed around with it for a little bit, and thought I would add this: if you are practicing just DP+A,A, Super on the ground, when you do the QCB+A, HCF+K, the timing should feel like it's a Drive Cancel.

    And another thing (and this may help more than anything,) if you practice it in the actual string from the combo: QCB+P x3, DP+A,A, QCB+P x2, DP+A,A, QCB+P, DP+A,A, Super - If you learn to delay the A on all of the DP+A,A in that string, when you get to the Super part, Takuma will be so high in the air that you don't have to rush the Super input at all.

    And lastly: once you get these things down, when you go to do the trial, do it as fast as you can. When I first started doing it the other night, I would run out of meter RIGHT before you have to Max Cancel.

    Yeah, I recommend the same thing as him, just practice doing quick hop, because that's the type of jump you need to do there. If you don't know how to do it, the way I do it is just press DB,UF quickly, but when you press UF, you have to tap it lightly. If you hold it even for a split second, you will do a super jump instead of a quick hop.

    Practice that, and I'm sure the rest will come easily!

    Well guys... I have 3 trials left... And as expected, they're Ash's trials 8-10. I'm so not excited for these lol. If they didn't make you do a full combo, a hard drive combo, AND a "poison mode" combo, then maybe I'd be less worried about them.

    Soooo about how I did all of Ash's trial 8 and missed the super at the end... *RAGE*

    also, I messed around with... I think it was trial 10; it's the one where you have to keep walking forward and doing fireballs... Yeahhhh I couldn't do it in more than once (couldn't do two walking fireballs in a row)

    *edit* I stopped counting at 7 times I landed the full combo but dropped the Super on Sunday night. Hopefully today, if I get some play time in, I can finish this. Gah!

    Hey by the way, has anyone done Ash's trial 10 by chance? Any tips? I know how to do a walking fireball, but you have such a tight window to do them! Not to mention, the instant b+HK. Any tips for either of those?

    And, does anyone need help with any of the other characters' trials? Or is everyone playing SC5 right now? I wonder if it's any good...

    What I did with the trials was break them down into simpler combos that were more practical. Frankly a lot of them are pretty damn hard to execute reliably for me. This is my first KOF but I've been playing fighting games seriously since 2006.
