I’m still here. It takes a while for me to get back on SRK after Evo 'cause I get burnt out and lose interest.
As for the topic, I was gonna mention that I’ve done it several times in tournament, just not to top players 'cause my C-groove isn’t good enough to play against them. The most notable was that dude at EvoWest that called his girl like he just watched me birth a child or something, and one time at an SVGL tournament in a loser’s final against Oliver. That was probably the sickest. R2 Kim vs R2 Sagat, I got down to 10% life, and then hit infinite into lvl3 for the win.
I think the difficult part about hitting it is because everyone knows when it’s coming, so it’s hard to actually hit the lvl2 thunderfoot required to start it. So you have people frantically running away, negating your opportunities for it, and you have to settle and just do lvl2 dash super into corner combo or something equally flashy. This runaway, combined with the fact that it’s still hard to hit, and they have to be in the right position makes it very hard to hit in game. Getting them in the right position isn’t too hard, I guess, they just have to be falling into the corner like half screen away when you kick them the first time…but hitting lvl2 kick is hard. You have to get in, hit low short, confirm that they’re standing and not crouching (except tall characters that can’t duck it…like Sagat…yay), hit another short and do it. A lot of times, you will be too far because the first short wasn’t as deep as possible.
John, if I go to NCR this year (or whatever it ends up being called), I will try my hardest to infinite someone and get it taped. Depending on my draw, I may even risk getting sent to losers to get this done.
