Sounds like you mash sometimes and other times you don?t. Here is a tip given to me by Inthul on how to improve your Rekka’s. Go to trial and change the characters “Block” to Random. It will help a ton with hit confirming as well as the timing with the Rekka. It truly worked for me.
as for the not enough- after i confirm the first one, i move the stick from down back thru up foward, and drum my fingers from fierce to light punch. that way if i miss time my press, i get extra chances at getting some strength of rekka to come out
Ok, here is my take on it since i really think this is the most important step to evolve your fei…
The rekka input (qcf) on the sf4 engine gives priority to :d: and :r:
This will drop your rekka:
You need to hit :r: to get the rekka, hence: :qcf: :lp:
Now in actual combat there are two positions you need to react to rekka: 1. In down-back postion, 2. while standing. You need to practice hit confirming from both positions this also goes for other special moves like fadc flame kick.
Anyways, I found after i do the 1st rekka i go neutral on stick and follow with the 2nd and 3rd (don’t be too tense otherwise your timing will be off)
Practice by setting your target on random block.
:lp: rekka has faster timing, :mp: is a bit slower and :hp: is more slow.
The distance after a block: :hp: is closest, :mp: fairly close, :lp: not close.
