[FONT=Helvetica]it’s not that I can’t do the links(i can nail them almost consistently on practice mode). It’s another thing doing them against a top player WITH lag. And if you don’t do it correctly, goodbye 30-40% your health. There are combos that seth can do that doesn’t require links, and I do them all the time if my opponent makes a mistake. Here are combos that doesn’t require links
Jump FierceKick+Low MK+lightning leg
Jump Fircekick+low MK+Sonic boom
Jump Fierce+low MK+sonicboom+fadc+low MK+lightning leg
jump fiercekick+FP+lightning leg
Jump Fiercekick+FP+sonicboom Fadc+FP+lightning legs
I never do links, and the only advantage on doing links with my strategy is hit confirming a player with a low jab. HOWEVER, if you catch a player with a low jab, and you don’t hit your link correctly, you will either get DP’d or botch your combo.
Half of seth’s combos don’t require you to do any links,(such as lowjab+lowjab+medium punch+lightning leg link).
THIS IS why i zone 90% of the time and only combo when I see an opening. this is how I got a 200 win 60 loss record. Sure, that record probably isn’t good when it comes to high level players, but i’ve beaten plenty of solid players. The reason why I don’t do links is because I play on Pad. It’s hard plinking on pad and **it’s hard timing your links using your thumbs(on pad). **
The advantage of Stick players is that you can “piano” and “plink” easier, and also, you are using your FINGERS when you play someone, making the timing easier. THERE ARE exceptions such as vangief or wolfkrone; however, exceptions don’t prove the rule.** It’s HARD doing links on pad.** This is why I turtle with seth.[/FONT]
