Its a bit embarrassing and humbling to bring this sort of thing up, being that I feel like its quite basic these days, but I have an issue with execution. I do know, as any player should, that there is always room for improvement and I always strive to become better. But this one is a wall for me. As far as my knowledge of the character will take me, the execution is killing me right now. This may very well belong in a different forum, but I figured i’d post it here because it might not be execution after all. Could just be something i’m doing incorrectly. Anyhow…
I’m having great difficulty performing FADC combos. The one in particular that I would find quite useful which i’d like to be very consistent at is c.mk > low release > FADC > Ultra 2 simply because its a great whiff punish. I’m not entirely sure what my issue is with it, but I can say one thing for certain. I have a very abysmally low success rate on player 1 side, but on player 2 side I can get it half of the time. I’m on stick, by the way.
My general strategy is to tap forward during release and then forward again while hitting focus at the appropriate timing for the FADC to come out instantly. Sometimes I will switch it up and try to buffer the double tap forward with a QCFx2 if i’m fast enough, but that doesn’t seem to work out as well. I know where the timing is to FADC after releasing the low Fuhajin, but then comes in the QCFx2 which I think i’m having an issue with, on player 1 side at least. Sometimes I think maybe its the Kx3 timing after the FADC, but I tend to do it so instantly on player 2 side and it works just fine.
I do have video of myself attempting this. I dunno if it’ll help or what. In any case… At least with this. I know its a very tight link, but with as easy as I get it on player 2 side compared to player 1 side, it boggles my mind as to what’s going on. So i’m reaching out for some advice or help or whatever I can get from you all. It would be very appreciated.
Here is me attempting it. Both sides are shown for comparison. I also realize that level 1 focuses are coming out because there are times i’m not holding focus down long enough or i’m not double tapping perfectly in tune with pressing focus at the right moment. Frustration is showing.
