I’m not very adept at fighting games so am having a lot of trouble adapting to SFV from SF4. One of the thing that I finally got down in 4 over the years was being able to convert all kinds of normals into specials. Specifically the standard light punches into light kick into specials. I could string along a decent amount of normals into specials in 4. Now the first thing I notice is that it doesn’t work like that in SFV. Maybe my timings are just all off so I hope those that are more familiar with this game can help me out here.
- So what can I do with jabs and shorts? I can’t seem to combo into anything with them.
- How exactly do I hit confirm? What is the general rule for SFV? Is it strong into strong into special (I can do this with Necalli)?
Right now without being able to convert fast and safe normals into bigger damage, I feel like I’m just mashing strong and fierce, then anticipate/react if they hit in order to finish the combo. Is that how I should play?
Thanks for any help.
