OK I’m very new here, and to SF4, so please excuse me if these questions seem stupid…
Is there a formula for discovering your own new combos? Or is there just a list of combos? Link timing is hard, what’s the key to getting that down?
I want to get a feel for the flow of Akuma, and I feel that memorizing a set of options for each situation I’m put in is going to be very tedious. I’ll do it if I have to, but is there a structure or set of rules to how to make a combo?
I’m thinking maybe it’s something like, a combo starts with a light short range hit, moves into a longer range light or medium hit, then links into a heavy hit, then into a special move, followed by a cancel into another special move, or something like that.
I guess the ultimate goal is finding a FORMULA to go by instead of having to MEMORIZE every single answer.
It’s like math problems. You can MEMORIZE every single possible answer to any question, or you can memorize the possible ways that you can arrive at those answer, in turn, having to memorize less, and mostly going by instinct.
Hope this all makes sense. Help is appreciated.
