Sorry, I couldn’t find exactly what I need to know in the Q & A. I have also searched the forum but still can’t find the answers. So I have no choice but to start a new thread in order to get the answers I want.
Ok. It’s about the Vega kara throw. I understand that in high level Vega gameplay, kara throw is said to be a must by the experts. All the top pros videos show them using kara throws mix-up very often, especially when their opponents are pushed to a corner. I have incorporated every aspects of the Vega gameplay into my game, but as much as I train, I just could not master the art of kara throw. These are the following questions I hope the masters of kara throws can help me with…
I understand that to do kara throw, I must cancel the 1st frame of standing HK to throw. How do you guys constantly do it? What is the technique you use? To me, since I am using a joystick, I must contour my right wrist in such an unnatural position in order to press the standing HK button with my little finger and then immediately the standing LP & LK for kara throw with my index finger and thumb. If I constantly contour my wrist in such an unnatural position throughout the match, it will affect my overall gameplay & combo effectiveness. I guess probably I am wrong with my input method. May I ask what is the correct and best way to input the kara throw command, so that I don’t have to contour my wrist in such an unnatural position?
Ok. So presumed I have found the right method of input… but how do I get the kara throw to 100%? To cancel the 1st frame of the standing HK into throw sounds easy on paper. But it’s so damn bloody hard to get it. Even in training mode with no pressure, I can only get it 50% of the time. The rest of the time I will just do the standing HK. In a real match I would have given the opponent a FOC chance to attack me if the standing HK comes out instead of kara throw. And I will miss out a chance to attack my opponent too. I find the timing for kara throw is so damn strict that it is 10 times more difficult than performing the izuna drop. How do you guys get it to 100% success?
So far I have no problem using Vega fast walk speed to get in to throw my opponent. So given the extreme difficulty of kara throw, is it worth it to incorporate it into my gameplay? I am afraid that because of trying to do kara throw, I will lose more matches because of the above factors. Is kara throw really a must among pros and high-level Vega game-play? Can a Vega player be high-level without using kara-throw?
