THIS INFORMATION IS STILL UNDER TESTING AND SUCH
Sup SRK, and Vega fans/users! i think this is my first thread here :)… hopefully it’s found to be useful.
I ran this tactic by my boy StopbeingCHEEP on PSN (he’s a really good Vega user), and he suggested i make a thread about it… so here it is…
Ok, I’ve always wondered why it feels like FDC is pretty much useless for Vega in regards to attacking and stuff. like Ryu and fighters like him can use this to cause serious damage, as can Juri, and some others… but Vega? nope. [virtually] nothing. i mean, sure, it can be added on to the Rolling Crystal Flash, or done before it ends to get a quick grab on the opponent… or if you have the very high level of precision necessary for it you can FDC on the last strike of RCF and link a Cr. LP to continue a combo… (this is, in my experience VERY difficult to pull off even in practice)… but let’s face it, this doesn’t get used in most matches simply because of the absolutely ridiculous level of precision and timing needed to do it properly, with receiving a shouryuken in the middle of you attempt (assuming you’re fighting a “shoto” style character).
well I’ve discovered a usage for FDC while in training vs Vega (this is very important to note, as this tactic DOES NOT work for every opponent, and is still being tested out)… to get to the point, you use:
Cosmic Heel (CH), then you HK -> FDC (let the first hit connect and then FDC forward)… this will put you BEHIND the opponent. i believe this technique is called a “reset” but I’m not sure, as my lingo may be off.
from there a lot of possibilities open up…
- Cr. MK, Cr. MP, EX FBA
- Cr. LP, Cr. MP, EX FBA
- St. HP, Cr. MP, EX FBA
- tick throw
it’s important to note that this particular technique DOES NOT work while the opponent is in a corner. however, something else is available here.
CH, Cr. LP, NORMAL dash forward…
*this will put you behind them and in the corner, and leave you with the same options mentioned earlier.
this works on most characters it’s been tested on so far.
on some people, so far Sagat and Balrog, you can do the “tactic 2” i mentioned (the corner one) even while not in the corner, making it even easier to tear them up.
sorry, I’m not as detailed as other threads OP have been. there’s still a lot of testing that needs to be done on this.
so far, off my memory from earlier today
Ryu & Ken - (T1) it can work, but the spacing is kinda strict, and the timing of the FDC is stricter too. (T2) works fine if i remember correctly.
Blanka - (T1) doesn’t work :mad: i don’t remember about (T2) but i doubt it…
*Grrr… sorry, I’ll have to edit and add more to this later or another time. i still have testing to do on this (maybe I’ll take notes on it for everyone). I’m currently getting a little overwhelmed by all the things I’m trying to remember off the top of my head.
I’d like at least the first two post spots to be **reserved **to fill in info that will come later, especially since i plan for that into to be much better organized and easier to read and understand… so please don’t take them away mods.
also… sorry… i don’t have any videos of it posted yet or anything.
Please try this out and send feedback, so i can add to the information I’ve gathered, and so I may get people’s thoughts on this.
