i’m not new to the fighting game genre but i wasn’t exactly sure where to ask this.
i have the hardest time consistently srking or doing QCB after a link. for example, i’m practicing some of Ibuki’s basic links:
cr.lp > cr.lp > st.mk, QCB+K
I also play Adon and his bnb:
cr.lp > cr.lp > cr.mp, srk
It’s not the motions I have issues doing, it’s doing them in a link. I can do both cancels above just fine outside of a link, 100% hit rate…but the moment I need to do them in a link, I have a 50-65% chance of getting the result I want. The srk/QCB comes out too early, skipping the move used to cancel into the special attacks, or they come out too late. I understand that if it comes out too early, I’m doing it too fast and vice versa, but I can’t seem to find the time to do either of these consistently. And yeah, that comes with practice but there has to be something more to it, I’m starting to get frustrated because this seems so simple and I’m not sure why I’m having such a problem with it.
I’ve been practicing for about two weeks and I still can’t seem to overcome this. Any advice?
