Red Pantie Addict Anonymous: Sakura General Discussion!

The chun forum has one of these and it works very well ( I think it helps prevent threads from being made as well)

Basically it's just a random thread if you've ever seen the fellowship, you know Sakura needed one of these threads too!

So talk about whatever you want, whether you just ran into a fellow Sak player online or you made a random discovery or observation then this is the place for you. Basically, if it doesn't fit into one of the stickies, put it in here!

GG to RJX13... i was taking a sakura break and picked chun. If I knew you were on the forum sooner I would have definitely picked sak!

    Every notice that Sakura is always smiling while fighting and after she is knocked down she grins a little. How can you not love a girl who no matter how rough its going she is always smiling.

    Kind of a blasphemous question for this thread, but I'd like to play sf4 at an arcade at some point and I don't know what character to pick.. Our girl sakura won't be an option so who should I pick instead? Recently I started messing around with gouken, but I don't think he's available in arcades either.

    Or should I just ignore arcades until they come up with an arcade cabinet that includes sakura..
    I hated hipsters before it was mainstream.

    TBH, ken really is kind of fun. Give him a shot, he's got some fun mind games you can play with people and fun combos.

    I must start doing this aswell. Drinking before playing lol. Last week I was drinking, not looped, just a couple pints and a roach and my game was well elevated. I always thought I would play bad, but the reckless "I don't give a toss" play actually worked really well. Maybe I over think when I play sober and just don't go for it hahahaha

    Haha thanks, i really dont like facing chun-li simply because she outpokes me and considering my very aggressive play style simply wont work against her lol

    hmm would like to try a mirror match sometimes, see how decent i am haha =P

    I came to this realization when playing a 3 bar online match with someone from SRK and they were using Guile it was very frustrating for even when I did eventually get in to apply pressure I could not get my links going, do to lag it made me crazy mad.

    Also I thought I'd put this here a put together a Sakura Custom just wanted to see what the Sak communtiy thinks http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=115479&page=514 it's at the very bottom of the page.

    Since this is an everything thread I'd like to come out and say I have finals retardation. 34 times I've been runner up with only 6 wins in G2. I'm like the Atlanta braves of Sakura. I don't know why. I often beat real tough competition to even make it to the finals and then instead of being hungry and going for the final like I did every match leading up to it, I become retarded.

    When I read that last night, I was going to quote you and say the same thing...I didn't have an analogy for it, but the same thing usually happens to me. I can go against a really good player in the build up, but then lose to someone really bad in the final :3

    Apart from today, which has been quite good, I've won four out of the five finals I've been in!

    The last one was close and I didn't really mind losing since I was only 9GP away from 6000 and I just wanted to get as far as semis and be done for the day so I could stop. But I didn't want to lose to a flowchart Ken in the semis, so I went to the finals against quite a good Ryu, which was quite close :)

    I just checked my championship records and out and I've won just over a third of them, which was a nice suprise. (12w 20l)

    LOL! I wasn't kidding in my previous post. I was an MK nerd before SFIV. The last SF game I played before was EX2 plus Alpha and Alpha 3. :shake:

    How much did you guys have to practice the Ex Tatsu >> Dash >> Ultra? I cannot do that at all. I've spent about 1hr after work a day for the past week trying to nail it and I've gotten it maybe twice.

    Thats me too man played Tekken for a decade then when Remix came out I stopped playing DR and switched to 2d and then when I found out about T6 not coming to console I was real hurt so I said fuckem now I love SF and the community.

    As far as hitting Ex Tatsu >> Dash >> Ultra I had some problems at first but I had a good friend who's amazin and he just told me I needed to slow it down so I did and then it was too slow for a while until I kept getting faster without compromising execution and now I hit it 95% offline less online depending on lag.

    honestly, I dont use ex tatsu > dash > ultra hardly ever. It leaves you a bit disadvantaged on wake up, and I'd rather go for a reset/mixup 95% of the time unless i'm POSITIVE i can kill the opponent with the ultra.

    But it's sooooo flashy at the end of a long combo too bad say good bye to doing any damage on top of leaving you at that disadvantage.

    What I do is :r::hcb::qcb:, and doing the motion right after Sakura fully extends her leg from the last tatsu kick.

    But no, I can't execute it perfectly either. Haha...I'll usually execute my Ultra the other way since I don't have time to practice the dash >> Ultra.

    you gotta do the trick everytime. Before you fight anyone going into ranking mode, watch a new replay, vote at least once in it, exit, then go on with your gaming session. I have NEVER had that message happen to me since I've done that.

    Gawd

    Every time I get a decent amount of CP in the semi-finals (like 30K+), I'll nearly always lose to somebody, regardless of how good or bad they may be. But when I have something low, I'll probably win.

    I just came against a Sagat by "metal virgil" in the semis with about 36000CP with me, so I thought, here we go, a Sagat with 13kGP, I'm going to lose. Lost the first round, though it was quite close.

    But, in the last few seconds, every time I was about to make an attack, like an EX Otoshi or something, the game would pause for a second...I thought, ehh, it's only one round, no biggy. The next two rounds, pretty much the same thing happens again, I think it was kinda obvious he had one of those lag switch things.

    Normally, when it gets laggy, things still go along, just a lot choppier. This would pause and then resume normal speed.

    I'm just glad I beat him, now I'm in the finals with 55000CP and ready to lose it to someone who only does jabs :D If I ever make a replay, God, I know it'll be appauling to look at.

    Edit: awww, I just fell short of a replay. Just beat another Sagat, but he only had 3500GP :( At least it was a really bad, laggy match and would have been bad to watch :D

    I got a question relating to Sakura and cammy
    in SF Alpha/Zero Sakura is 16
    in Street Fighter 2 Cammy is supposedly 19
    and the dolls were all around the age of 16 in SFA
    so cammy was about that age
    but Sakura was born in 1973
    and cammy was born in 1966
    so I find myself confused
    does anybody know what I'm missing here?
    I once watched a japanimation and in temporary insanity I committed sins against my church and my christ. NEVER AGAIN.
