Do you chain using the turbo?


#1

Hi, i had a real hard time trying to link jabs or shorts in AE trial session (playing with Bison)

so i switched on the turbo on the fightpad and it worked like a charm, i did 4hit LK or LP combos without effort

so i’m asking you, do you use the turbo function and is it alright to do so ? is there something wrong with me if i can’t tap the button fast enough ?


#2

There’s nothing wrong with you, it’s more just timing than pressing the buttons fast enough. But don’t use turbo. Even suggesting you might use turbo is like painting a big, red crosshair of hate right on your face, and the gun will shoot pee at you endlessly.
It’ll make you a bad player, don’t use it.

Really hope this is a troll thread.

But seriously don’t do it. It’s illegal in tournaments and doing it online will generate much disrespect in your direction


#4

There’s nothing wrong with you per se, but turbo is simply a crutch - not to mention a really bad one, considering it’s nigh useless later on, banned from tournaments and hated online - that will eventually damper your progress as a player.

Make an effort and try actually learning the links, otherwise you’ll never improve.

alright i wont use the turbo, but guess what: i tried doing jab and short chains with Akuma and it worked like a charm !! no taping pace problem like with Bison

gosh now i’m thinking of switching to Akuma as my main lol


#6

Your problem is most likely Bison’s c.LKs, which cannot be chained.


#7

nah, never even used the turbo thing. Pointless move by madcatz and anyone else for that matter, imo


#8

yes they can, up to 4hit actually (with the turbo on)


#9

try plinking or something

he’s new so he doesn’t know turbo is banned in tournies. Be nice, he isn’t trolling.

However I like to take this opportunity to ask my own question

I have flawless execution offline with my Bison’s crouch light kick and I don’t even plink, but my connection is almost always too slow to do it online.

Would it be wrong to turn turbo on when I fight mashing scrubs? I mean people can’t mash me out of my combos offline, so it’s actually more legit that way isn’t it? trollface

I never tried that… so this brings me to my next question.
Would turbo still not even save me if my connection is slow? (It drops 59% packets on average and I almost never get green.)


#11

Those are links, not chains.


#12

yeah his punches are chains… the ones that you can kinda mash without strict timing. Crouch light kick is a link


#13

whats the difference between link and chain ?


#14

Linking actually takes timing.


#15

i see, thx


#16

alright i managed to chain the LK (3hit) without the turbo, but you have to press the button so fast its practically undoable in a real match


#17

I always wondered why TE sticks have a turbo feature…


#18

You’re not supposed to mash it. Three clean presses, linked together. Do a c.LK then try pressing LK again once the move ends. If nothing comes out, press later, if it comes out but it’s blocked, press earlier. Eventually you’ll get the timing down.


#19

It’s very possible in a real match.

Check this video out. It has many other Bison combos you can do.
