Hey guys, this is my first post, hope you have the patience with me. I’ve been playing the game for quite a while but was never devote to it. I would just go in to the arcade and have some fun. But I find myself limited to only few tricks since I’ve never mastered the combos. With Geese I have no trouble against players who can’t combo, but against the really good ones, I have trouble keeping up with them.
The question is how do you guys practice with the combos? And what are the major combos you guys use? My most common one is c. jab, c.short and double reppuken. It’s flashy and can take quite a chunk off the lifebar but it’s vulnerable and it’s hard to set in.
I can execute the raging storm pretty much on slower players and on certain machines(this sounds crazy but it’s true, shorter joysticks are harder to work with) With Deadly Rave I usually execute it when my opponent is in a middle of a move or the opponent just finished rolling, but I have yet to combine it with a jump in combo.
Perhaps the biggest hindrance is I have a bad habit of always holding the joystick back for blocking position, this prevents me from utilizing his two special moves that requires the half-circle back motion, namely his counters and Jaiken. I guess the first instinct is always do hold back for an autoblock since pressing forward gives me the impression for inviting a hit.
Can you guys give me some advice how to deal with the combo and half-circle back issue? Thanks.
