Here’s perhaps a scrubby question but I’d be greatful if someone could field it for me. I’ve always wanted to get into Tekken games but they seem pretty complex. Every time I pick one up I read a few combos online, and uh, fail basically. It’s difficult to understand what I’m doing wrong.
I mean I can read the notation, and I can execute what it says, but hm, shit doesn’t work? I’m sure there must be some ommited subtleties to timing / spacing, or something of that nature, but if someone could help me with a couple of bnbs for Asuka I think I’d have a much better grasp on the game.
For instance here’s a combo listed on TekkenZaibatsu, it’s a really simple Asuka BNB.
- b+4,2,B! uf+3, b+2,4,3 (7 hits, 74 TAG dmg)
Every time I try this it drops after uf+3. If I separate the combo into two, 1+2:
- b+4,2,B!, uf+3 B+2, 4, 3 I can execute these without problem. So what is it that’s causing me to drop it in the longer combo? It doesn’t make much sense to me.
I’m not exactly masterful at fighting games but I’ve never had trouble comprehending the notation of anything beyond Tekken. I can always execute or at the very least understand what’s written down, even if not consistently, but it seems on Tekken I’m at a loss. This of course isn’t the only combo I struggle with in this regard, this is just a simple example.
If anyone could enlighten me as to what’s eluding me here, I’d appreciate it.
