Ok, I just wanted to know if this was already known…
I found about it like a couple of months ago, but I didn’t post it cause I thought it was already known(and I was hella busy). Then a couple of days ago I went to the arcade like after light years of not playing decent comp, and I pulled out some combos that used my “finding”(lol). And these peeps told me that they never saw that anywhere else(and they are like crazy DLers from #gamecombos and ish) so I thought maybe it was worth mentioning. So if you already knew about it please let me know, I’m not a n00b(for those who don’t know me)nor a pro. BEHOLD!! This little thing I found about Storm(and not sure if it was already known):

You can combo (in corner) his s.HP into his s.HK. You gotta be close, tho, so you have to dash after a jump in(like you didn’t already…) . This effectively boosts her combo damage ~+11. So you can “upgrade” her classic
-(s)j. HP, ds.LK, s.MK, s.HK, sj. HKxxAD DF+HK, land, s.LK, s.MP, s.HP, s.HK
(~70 something of damage) into
-(s)j. HP, ds.HP, s.HK, sj. HKxxAD DF+HK, land, s.LK, s.MP, s.HP, s.HK(86 damage to cable).

You just have to adjust your timing, cause opp is higher.

Other “boosted” combos: (against cable)
-(s)j.HP, (s)j.HK, ds.HP, s.HK, sj.LP, (optional:sj.MP)LAx2xxLS
~90 damage

(with Mags Proj.)
-(s)j.HP, ds.HP, s.HK, call Mags, sj.HKxxAD DF, sj.LK(whiff), s.HK, sj.LPxxLA(x2)xxLS
~100 damage(w00t!!), DHC into MT kills.

There are MANY variations, I’m just listing the ones I like to do most. If you try to go for an AD combo(like magic series, AD, magic series etc.) the LS won’t do its “full” damage, only 3-4 hits cause opp is so high.

Ok, if you didn’t know about this, I hope you find it at least interesting, if you already knew, just ignore it.

BTW, Shaolin Soccer = Best. Movie. Ev4r.

Are you sure? I haven’t seen that one done before in any combo vid I’ve seen… And I’m not talking about a s.HP, s.HK after FS has been activated, but BEFORE, like at the start of the combo…

Just checking.

And Shaolin Soccer pwnz j00.
