I’m really getting into USF4 and I’m trying to pick a character. I’ve been learning Ryu but I think its time to branch off into someone a little better. I was told to learn the game with Ryu and I did, but now its time for a switch. I’m pretty sure I want to stick with a shoto for now, so I’m really between Ken and Akuma. The only concern I have about ken is figuring out all of the Kara stuff. I can kara throw but I can’t kara hurricane kick or DP, both of which seem to be important.
What do you all think about Ken for a new(ish) player? Is there a really good place to go for combos? I’m having a ton of trouble doing hadoken FDAC into Ultra 2. I can do it but the dummy always blocks. Is there a really good video somewhere that shows you how to do the kara stuff (in depth)?
Also, Bafael mentioned in one of his videos that target combo is trash. Is that the case? Should I stay away from it? Why?
EDIT: I also am having trouble doing DP into arial tatsu.
