Focus Dash Into Super & Ultra - What It Is, What It's used for - How To Do It


#1

This thread has been posted in M.Bison forum, perhaps that I was M.Bison in that video and showed how to avoid the projectiles. BUT. It has the same principle for every charge character. That’s why I thought it would be a good idea to let them know as well.

This video took me over 5 days to produce just for you, designing, editing, and recording. The least you could do for me is rate it, comment it and subscribe. I appreciate every subscriber I have and it’s what kept me producing these videos. As I have said in other SF4 videos, SG (Super Grade) battles are coming soon. So subscribe and stay tune for them!

I really do hope you find this video useful. Cheers. :slight_smile:

Tutorial part starts at time: 2:10.

This is old news. Why post it here if it’s already in the character sub-forums? :confused:

Cool vid I guess…


#3

I don’t this would work as well for blanka unless you were right on top of them. They’d have plenty of time to react to his little arcing roll first.


#4

Because any charge character can use this input to FA, Dash, Super/Ultra, not just Dictator.
This can be pretty useful and many players aren’t aware you can do that to tell you the truth.


#5

Still not justified. It’s useful information, but it’s information that’s already ABUNDANT in the character sub-forums. Every other day or so someone is asking FADC > Ultra OMGZ How To Do?! and there is someone explaining it.

But if you like your forum clogged and redundant with pointless/clone threads, hey, that’s YOUR cup of tea.

No sheit, sherlock.


#7

nice editing


#8

u mad?


#9

lol, I read your post in a hurry and ended up misreading it, I thought you were asking him why post this in the SF4 forum instead of a character sub-forum.
Not having english as your primary language sucks ass. ._.


#10

You don’t need to focus to pull this off.


#11

You used SFEX music. You already get 5 stars for that alone.


#12

Yes, but 70% of the time you meet a character with projectiles, he is gonna over use it, which means he will atleast pull of two projectiles in a row. That’s why I found this so useful to absord one of them and surprise with a super. What’s the point trying to do this without absorbing one of the projectile… It’s like lottery.


#13

You gotto love it. :slight_smile:


#14

It’s a nice vid.

But how many Ryu’s are just gonna throw out their ultra like that. I know the vid is for demo purposes, but for all your dash Ultra’s there is plenty of time to block and avoid it.


#15

Well, that was just a example on how it works, that it can avoid a projectile. The Focus Dash into ultra is very tricky to get in. Practice and reading your opponent can get a long away.


#16

Then those 70% you play are amateurs. Any good player who zones with projectiles does not consecutively throw them unless the initial fireball has landed, block or hit, and they are at a safe distance to deal with counterattacks.

Cool trick? Definitely.

Practical? Absolutely not.

^Way back when, there’s a vid of some Japanese tournament (?) footage of a Guile player dash-ultra’ing through a Ryu fireball. The Guile player was in the corner, and Ryu was at a safe enough distance to not get hit by the ultra if it’d been the regular version.

Also in the Chun forums, there’s vids of a Chun player landing FA dash ultra against a Sagat - twice in the same round.

A lot of fireballers will throw that second fireball, especially at a distance, seeing you absorb the first one and knowing that you can’t absorb another, and must dash either forward or backwards. Usually, its a good way to keep you locked down. Plus, MANY Sagat/Ryu/Ken players will throw an EX fireball, and then immediately throw a regular fireball after it.

I wouldn’t say its impractical, just not often used. You sort of have to commit to the ultra while dashing - and unless your opponent has done something blatantly punishable, that can be hard to confirm. I dunno if you can use it regularly or even abuse it, but if you can do it its a nice tool to have in your arsenal.

Nice video, moreso than the fact that you can FADC into Ultra, I learned that Bison’s Super and Ultras go through fireballs… I never knew that…

So how do you dash forward yet still hold the charge?

The vid makes it look easy as hell lol.
