I don’t understand why Ultra Combos are so much stronger than Super Combos. Aren’t Super Combos the main special in the game, with Ultras being a secondary?
For some characters, 4 Ex moves seems to do more damage than a Super Combo, and with super combos being easily punishable if missed, they make me wonder whats the use of them? Sorry if this sounds like a troll thread its an honest question.
Why I think Supers are useful:
*- They’re a reliable way to kill off an enemy when you know it will just barely kill them, and you’re on lethal damage. Its your only hope then instead of trying to hit 4 ex moves.
The priority can beat some other super combos (like Ryu’s against Ryu’s, though I never tried that.)
They look Cool
Its good to have them at the start of round 2 or 3 before you opponent gets an ultra.*
Why I think Super Combos are not useful:
*- They do less damage than 4 ex attacks+their combo options
They leave you wide open when you miss.
Saving for a Super Combo can take a long time and by that time usually one of you are about to die anyways.
-If you have a Super Combo, they have an Ultra Combo, and can counter easily.*
Tell me, is it safe to go into matches with this mentality? I rarely used Super Combos except when I needed the big damage at once to finish off an enemy who can kill me in one hit.
