Note: I just wanted to repost this because I think it is VERY worth the read. This is for the author, whose original thread was shut down simply because it didn’t have the fucking title “MVC2” in front of it. I don’t even want to get started on the nazi mods in here so without further bitching here it is reposted, in original context by the author himself:
I have been playing with Chun_Li in MvsC2 since the begining. Every one says she sucks, in the beginig I thought the same thing but after long practices I own people with her.
She is so underrated, she should be top tier.
I would be glad to learn about the tactics and the strategy you use as well as the combos.
Here goes my strategy:
To win with her you need:
1_Super jump cancel with her for almost any attack.
2_To star combos while sj canceling (you super jump and then press but punches as close to the ground as possible) change your weak punches to strong punches they do way more damage.
3_Learn some combos ,here goes my favorite:
4.1_sj cancel,SP,SK,land,SK,AND THE ANTI AIR SUPER.(this one those 75% damgage and you can DHC into anythink afterwards.) Call a projectile assistant first to protect your rush.(with assitants you get longer comboes and of course they shoud be more damaging(usulaly))
I hope it will be usefull.For more information contact meI would beglad to help and I would be interested to know how you play your chun li.
Here goes an other combo:
Sj cancel,WK,WP,SP,land,WP,WK,SK,sj,WP,WK,WP,WK,2nd jump,WP,WK,WP,WK,3rd jump,WP,WK,MP,MK,SK
This one those 20 hits and thosen’t do that much demage but it’s basicly for charging metter.
Well done chun la.
The combo that Cycloid Beta posted works and it’s very impresive, but after doing it I changed the end because at the end people can roll and be save, and the otg just work on Big guys. I did some modifications and I got a
32 HITS combo and it does 64% DAMAGE on cable!!
The combo is the following:
right angle jump,SP,SK(2hits),land,WP+Spiral Ground Assist, WK,WK(SPIRAL HITS),right angle jump,SP,SK(2hits),land, WP, WK, SK,superjump,WP,WK,WP,WK,doublejump,WP,WK,WP,WK,tr
This combo does 32 hits, you don’t otg so they can’t get out of it and it does 64% damage on cable, it can be done in any character besides roll and servot.
I was wandering after knowing all what we wrote in this thread would you categorise Chun Li as a top tier character?(If you answer explain why)(we are talking without assitants)
I dare to say yes because of the following reasons:
1_She is a very good rush down character, she have a projectile she have a 75% damage combo (whit Hyper) and here rush down starts by a right angle jump, see advantages below.
2_ Chun Li against Storm: Storm is by far the best Character in MvsC2 and her game vary so much, she can be a chicken runaway or swich it to deadly rush down and with her instopables projectiles she truly is a Godess.Let’s be realistic Chun Li doesn’t stand a chance against Storm but if you’ll have to play her use the following: When you see that storm superjump, do the samething to keep her grounded.Use the Right angle jump when she throws any projectile(if you are far away don’t superjump, do a normal jump then dash and Chun Li will fly all the screen long and if you land over her combo and your better not to miss)and by the way the 75% combo on storm will do way more damge than over cable,two of them and she’ll died.
3_Sentinel: another terrible character(since you won’t be playing with assistants)just use your antiair super it can be comboed after almost anymove and it is extreamly quick. But Sentinel can defeat you very easily, he is the second best character after Storm. Use the run away chun li(sj+SK,dj+SK,tj+SK, walljump+SK,fj+SK,6thjump+SK and land)Then you would be over him since Chun Li goes out of the screen and sentinel doesn’t and use your down+SK to keep him grounded btw you should have enought metter for an antiair super(be sure you super connect because if it doesn’t you’re doomed)and by the way do some rushdown I personaly recomend to keep your sixth jump for emergencies. Sentinel’s weakness is that if you stay in the air in front of him, practicaly he doesn’t have any move to push you away and if you did pass his projectile wall rush him down to death.
Ok the ones above are way to strong for her but even cable can’t beat does two so let’s continue.
4_Magneto the combo enciclopedia:YOU CAN MASH OUT OF HIS MAGNETIC TEMPESTand without his Psylock AAA he is not that powerfull any more but he still very dangerous but Chun Li can beat him, I did in the Arcades.Usually magneto players go for the dash and c.lk, just right angle jump and do your 75% combo. If he starts to tringle jump on you, pushblock and then air dash towards him. Chun Li should win(a good Chun Li player). Btw my respects for the magneto players usually they work realy hard to get those impresive comboes they are not like cable players.
5_Cable: the character I hate the most in this game(not because he is powerfull in the game but because I hated him since the first time I saw him in X-Men,you could see all does cool mutants with amazing powers and then you see an stupid old man with guns, lol, give me a brake). Well cable is the easiest character to learn how to play in the whole game. Dash over his dirty stuff and do a SP, (we are talking without assitant)SK etc…combo. If you do it correctly he won’t be able to air HVB you. be sure he doesn’t hit you with his gun since most likely he’ll cancel it in to a ground hyper viper beam.
For:Spiral,Blackheart,Doom,Strider, I haven’t seen people playing does characters very often and I don’t like to give my opinion on things that I don’t know.
6_Cyclops: I don’t know from where this one comes from, he is so easy to beat, he just have a good AAA that’s all.
7_Psylock: same thing.
I am waiting for your answer.(I know almost all the people will disagree).
Yeah, Chun Li has triple jump and airdash. ChunLi/Doom-B can be funny cause you can d+rh, then assist with doom and jump or air dash and stomp again or land on the other side and do lightning kicks or something (I remember seeing that posted by Viscant awhile ago, I think)…
So ChunLi/Doom would be like getting caught in a meat grinder.
Also, one thing I noticed is that if she just wants to run away that she builds meter with d+rh in the air like no other. And with triple jump and air dash you can just keep doing d+rh as much as possible to build fast meter.
Or something like, do head stomp (d+rh) and then assist with doom (or someone) and then while jumping towards them again you probably have time to whiff one or two d+rh and then d+rh stomp them the next time and repeat or whatever.
I would suggest a team like ChunLi/Storm/Doom
jump in(NO AIRDASH)lk, lk, fp, d+FK(stomp) LINK an airdash, lp, lk, lp, lk, fp, fk, s. lk, s. lk xx sj cancel xx airdash xx lk, lk, fp fk, j. lp, j. lp, j. fp, stomp, LINK another airdash, lp, lk, lp, lk, fp, fk and repeat.
Yes it’s hard as fuck, yes it’s impractical and yes I’ve done it in a real match.
I have discovered a great team with Chun Li:
Storm/projectile, Sentinel/Ground, Chun Li/AAA.
So, does she deserve to be a top tier?
