Alpha 3: Balrog (Boxer) Thread


#1

I can’t recall seeing a thread devoted to him, and if there was one, I’m sure it’s probably long since disappeared. I’m sure there are some folks out there who had a chance to work with him in Alpha 3, and hopefully, you’ll feel free to post strats., combos, good/bad match-ups, etc…

bump
I’d like to know too. Using him in CVS2 has rekindled my interest in him.


#3

Apoc biting. Lol. Why don’t you ask Apoc yourselves?


#4

Sounds easy enough. What’s…an Apoc?


#5

c.Jab x2, FP Headbutt = B&B

s.FP, c./s.Jab, c.MP, c.MK are his most used pokes

A/X = Best -Isms


#6

Apoc uses Bison in A3? Anyway, are there any other combos besides the headbutt one?


#7

rotflmao:lol: whats an apoc…too funny:lol: Apoc is a person, a guy who uses balrog.


#8

Well, you can combo either one of his supers from c.Jabs…

You can also do like c.Jab x2, Dash sweep (b, df+p)


#9

Ah…yes. The standing fierce: so much chin-music for people who thought they were safe because they had a little distance in the middle, and Balrog wasn’t dashing at them. Standing uppercut normal ( D+FP) has some good priority, too. I use that if I don’t have time for the Headbutt, or the Dashing Upper.

I’ve used the standing fierce to eat some time between Dashing Straights on occasion; if I connect with the punch, I add another DS or go right into the super.

I have to agree when it comes to A/X-ism Balrog; half of the damage I do comes from normals, and they’re usually at their most damaging in either of those modes. Has anyone found a way to pull off an effective V-ism Balrog? I can’t remember what moves he either gains or loses. I never use him.


#10

I have a question about balrog. how do you play as him?


#11

HAHA! What’s an Apoc? Too good.

I am sure he’ll be happy to provide some strats the next time he pops online…


#12

I can’t remember whether or not this was possible in Alpha 3, but since the regular Headbutt throw sent your opponent up at a slight angle, was it possible to follow that with a charged super? I don’t know whether or not the computer continues to recognize the charge while you’re in mid-throw, but if it really is possible to tag them with a super at the end, I’d love to know.
