Ok this is fair warning, if you do not want to read a scrubby type post then don’t read this post. There are 3 other good Kyo threads here if you feel you are too good for this:
So I’ve been cancelling my shoto c.RH into fireball for years now; I don’t even have to think twice. The transition from normal xx ken’s funky kick was easy, and I’ve always liked Blanka, and he feels right in CvS2 as well. Same with Guile, and pretty much the rest of the SF2 cast…Iori was easy to get into, as well as Todo…
But Kyo just feels totally awkward. Aside from his accuracy-dependant 2 frame combos, the whole feel of pressing the buttons that execute his specials is so awkward. I end up mashing on buttons to get those rekkas out, and that works a lot better than actually trying to time it. Don’t even get me started on those upkicks…feels totally alien. I can’t get used to it for the life of me; it’s kind of like how some people never get RC elec down or shoshosho consistently.
I don’t think I am alone here…there must be others who feel that Kyo takes a totally different kind of timing to execute. So, any tips on how to “get used to him”? Any particular mashing strategies to get those rekkas out? I’ve finally been able to procure a ps2 for practice, so now I wanna practice some Kyo. I need the flashing sign to say “combo”!
