This is something that i’ve practice for literally more than a day. The amount of time i’ve spent trying to get this down has been more than 24 hours. I would come home and practice it until someone sent me a PM for matches. It was the only thing I really practiced before I gave up on it. I even gave it another shot to make my final choice before dropping the ultra completely. I figured if I was going to use that ultra at all I had to have a serious way to go into it. This (IMO) is the best way still, but also the hardest. Hows that for risk/reward?
Juri Kills actually gave the best advice if I read it correctly. Break it down. Find out what you’re doing wrong. Because saying “oh the inputs arent working” is like saying “oh i threw my controller and it didnt come out”. Let me explain.
Whats happening when you do it? Are you getting Ultra 2 EVERYTIME, only its too late? Are you getting ex fireball? Are you getting Hk? Are you getting Focus attack? I’ll try and explain them all.
Ultra 2 Activates: Youre too slow. I suggest using one of these inputs:
- c.mk xx f+release > F+FA > Ultra 2. Buffer the dash in the two moves.
- c.mk xx release > F, F, FA > Ultra 2. Dash inputs are still valid.
- c.mk xx release > F, F+FA > Ultra 2. The Focus attack input is now F+MK+MP. Makes it easier in your head imo.
Ex Fireball activates: Sloppy inputs. I suggest breaking down the steps. Here is your plan for working up to getting at least the first situation (Ultra 2 comes out, but you’re slow).
1)First practice the QCFx2 Motion. Pick Ryu, put dummy on all block and infinite meter. Practice both sides until you can do it consistantly.
2)Ryu’s Shoryuken fadc Ultra 1. The timing of this is a little slow. You have all the time in the world to get really precise inputs. Work on it until you can do this sleeping. Really try and only get qcf motions and no silly shortcuts or anything.
3)Cody’s Kick FADC Ultra 1. Practice this until you can get this down consistantly. Both sides please. The timing for this a little fast so you gotta have your inputs down along with your speed.
Now that you can do the motion’s with no problems, lets take juri back into the lab.
1)Back dash > Super (with all 3 kicks). Sounds silly, but this actually the motion for fadc > Ultra 2…only slower. If you can do this consistantly, you’re on your way to getting this down. If you get ex pinwheel, you’re inputs are still sloppy.
2)c.mk xx release > FADC > QCFx2 + lk. Sounds silly again, but heres why. This is an easy way to test all of your excecution except for doing the ultra. The other characters Ryu and Cody + your super training should have gotten your inputs down, this is just to makes ure you have a firm grasp on the other aspects of this. If you do it right, it should hit. If not, and its blocked…you’re too slow with your fadc.
3)C.mk xx release > FADC > ultra 2. If you followed this, you should be at the point where you can do it all no problem, both sides.
HK comes out. If hard kick comes out, you’re plinking your ultra input. Just as a test, try and put one of your buttons to 3K. Does this help your situation? If so, you might wanna make sure your coming down on all of the kicks and not pianoing your hits.
Focus Attack comes out without the dash. If this is true, your execution on your focus attack is sloppy. You’re not holding the focus attack long enough to dash cancel it. Or, you’re not inputing your dashes correctly. If you use the advice to dash first, then focus attack, your dashes arent close enough to the focus attack.
These are just things that you can use to get beter at Ultra 2 from focus attack. I personally have like…70% success on the p2 side, and a really poor success on P1. I decided that it wasn’t worth my while to use Ultra 2 rather Ultra 1 would buff what I think is the best thing about juri anyways.
Let me know what you think. FADC ultra 2 is very hard and is a really advanced setup. To use this properly you have to become better. This is my white whale. When I can do this, then I wont drop fadc > C.hp. lol. I also will be able to do dive kick (all hits) dash forward > ultra 1 on p1 side.
essentially…if you cant do this, you have to improve your execution in someway. So…do so! Dont just find a shortcut for this ultra, actually get better.
