SF5 Bison Findings

I know a lot of people can’t log on at the moment, but I expect them to fix up the beta connectivity sooner or later and plus they extended the beta window past the initial 5 days since the first day is a disaster.

I got 30 minutes in so far, dump your beta findings here. Bison army, you still in here? :open_mouth: Whether you saw some of the VesperArcade Bison primer here or not

V-TRIGGER
I haven’t had too much time to mess with V-Trigger mode before I got kicked off, but for the normal special attacks into EX-special attacks that don’t require charge, you may not do the same attack. Also, EX-Knee Press is an ender as well as EX-Head Press, you cannot cancel another EX off it since it’s animating and EX Head Press doesn’t link.

So you can combo something like…
Knee Press >> EX-Inferno, EX-Blast, EX-Knee Press
Inferno >> EX-Blast, EX-Inferno, EX-Head Press
Blast >> EX-Inferno, EX-Knee Press or EX-Head Press
Knee Press >> EX-Head Press
Blast >> EX-Knee Press

Since the EX moves are unique in Psycho Power / VTriggered mode, they also drain the meter. Hitting all 3 EX-Special cancels after a combo drains like 35% or 40%, because not only are you using the % of V-bar but the duration is still running as your attacks are animating.
