I went through my recordings the other day and noticed one involving an online random player match versus a Seth. Bloke was being a complete ass relying on backjumping fierce punch and whatnot but once I caught him and got him into a Dizzy I went for a Lv3 FA and went to go for CMP>Headbutt Ultra.
Thing is… CMP didn’t come out - Turns out I forward-dashed into Headbutt>Ultra.
(It’s at 1:10 - Skip the rest - It’s my usual “Oh look, yay, I’m so happy I did ‘X’ combo!” type of movie, nothing special).
Now, I know the charge times are a bit lenient, but is it common knowledge that you can charge so much so that you’ve no need to add more scaling if you can forward dash into a headbutt? I’m not talking of a forward dash /wait to charge/ headbutt, I mean he ran forward and a split second later Bwuahahahahaha THERE’S NO ESCAPE!
Would it matter? I’ve not tried but I’ll assume it’s pointless if you can FA (No Dash) Headbutt and get the same result (Though I used to think it’d whiff as the opponent is laying on the floor by then) but otherwise wouldn’t it save a bit of scaling if you just wanted to tack on a wee bit of damage pre-ultra with just a headbutt/ultra after a FA? If you wanted max damage on a dizzy, you’d likely just Ultra them or go for a more suiting non-ultra based combo, sure… Guess I’m trying to a) Figure out if this is something new/interesting and/or b) Is it even any remote use at all [not likely].
I just found it… Very VERY weird. I’m dumping a lot of recordings at the moment of some random combos and shinanigans for the sake of using them and being rid of them so I’ve tacked the clip in question on the end if it turns out to be something special, but I wanted to get people’s take on it, first before I even consider linking it…
Honestly, it just looked so weird that I was a little shocked… If it turns out to be anything remotely special I’ll link it but I get the feeling my inexperienced tingly senses just seem to think it’s uncommon.
