hi there i saw last time a infinity against a zangief player and would love to know how exatly it work!


#2

what?


#3

I think he’s talking about the ex rush upper loop.


#4

Ah.

If you’re talking about the EX Upper loop it’s simple.

EX Upper gives enough frame advantage on hit that you can link a c.lp > c.lk xx EX Upper after it lands - as long as you have meter you can do it forever…


#5

…and good news is it works on everyone, not only on zangief.

Damage scaling makes it a waste of ex meter tho. Just go for ex rush upper, c.lp, c.lk xx headbutt


#6

As long as they are standing of course. Just FYI OP.

Some other shit will fuck it up though AFAIK, like EXing through a fireball or sometimes counterhitting a poke.


#7

if you ex through a fireball with ex rush upper one jab will still connect from my experience, so although its risky u can followup with c.lp xx headbutt, kind of a desperation move since its impossible to hit confirm the c. lp but still practical in some situations


#8

Ex rush, lp, lk
EX rush, lp, lk
EX rush, lp, lk
EX Overhead smash, lk headbutt ultra

Works EVERY time.

Whoa you must be really good if you can connect that shit online without the fear of wasting 4 bars. For me, 1 repetition is more than enough. The overhead reset gets almost everyone, you’re right on that


#10

I wish I played people that fell for overhead resets… I play at the arcade so, that could play a part. Online it’s probably harder to react.


#11

I play offline most of the time, and my sparring partners almost never fall for it.


#12

It’s easy to react to the overhead as long as your not sleeping. I will say it is harder to react online though. Sometimes I switch from low block to high block a full second early but it still won’t let me block obvious overheads.


#13

Wait, what? I didn’t get the last part…


#14

Isn’t he implying that its so laggy that even when he sees the overhead coming he can’t block it in time?


#15

Ah…


#16

Exactly


#17

That’s the pains of playing online, unfortunately. You can get away with crazy shit, but crazy shit happens to you also.
