I’ve just gotten off from an afternoon of ONLY fighting Ryu’s. I didn’t want it that way but everyone who challenged me today seems to main Ryu.
So whilst fighting Ryu I was confronted with his magical ability to combo off everything and I thought “wouldn’t be great if all I had to do was one AA and then I could go to ultra everytime”. But as far as I know, I can’t, I have to work very hard to land my ultra 2.
Or “wouldn’t it be great if all I had to do was connect a cr.m kick and then I have my options of what combos to go for to cause crazy damage”. But I don’t. As far as I know, I CAN go to FB from m. kick but it’s not a combo, ryu can cr m.kick ME before the FB comes out, and then I’m caught in a combo again.
So when I’m playing, my main pokes are step kick and cr. med kick. Can Ken actually combo into anything from either of these or are they only good as pokes alone?
I’m feeling very limited with Ken these days. it feels like all of the other characters have more options and really easy ways to combo into ultra, and all I have is pokes and a knockdown game. IE once I get a knockdown, I keep going with crossover attacks into DP for as long as I can.
I know there’s a combo thread but tbh? I can’t read that stuff. It makes no sense to me + it doesn’t seem to have been updated for 2012. Apologies if I’m wrong. I know that stuff takes effort to create. Thanks for any help guys. It’s all appreciated.
