Does JR. RODRIGUEZ still play as Akuma

akuma

#1

As he was the one who made me like to watch Akuma being played in 3S

I know Heisn Chang still plays, as Ken but what about JR ?


#2

There’s plenty of time to do all the inputs during the kick.


#3

Holy fuck he destroyed F3S but got beat by PyroLee, anymore vids of him


#4

This isn’t a very new video. I haven’t seen or heard from JR in a while, but that doesn’t mean that he’s quit or stop playing Akuma all together. There’s a tournament at FFA tonight that I might go to. I’ve never met him but if I do and I see him there then I’ll tell you guys.


#5

I played him earlier this year (May I think) at Regency, so if he quit it was fairly recently.

I wouldn’t say a LOT of time, u need to be very, very fast to get that SA connects in that way (hk, RD) but u dont need to be that fast when you do it hiding the lp’s.
Its even easiear to cancel the f.mp --> RD (>mp, RD) (not: lp, lp, > + mp, lk, hp)


#7

I disagree. I can do far hk and dash up demon, but I can’t even get close to finishing the inputs before the second part of the f.mp. I can cancel it at the very end, but if they block it will have already hit them so there’s no point.


#8

co sign.

I’ve been doing dash demons and RH demons for ages without problems. But cancelling f+mp without hiding jabs first is hands down the most difficult demon to execute.


#9

Did he even go to Evo-West? I’d realy like to see an American Akuma get placed high in a tournament. Where is Hsien from again?
