I recently started playing as Fei Long (I’m on team Chicken Wing now, yay!) and been watching a lot of Mago, Starnab, Fuudo and Inthul (my favorite) videos. One combo I see everyone does is Flame Kick, FADC, Chicken wing, Ultra 1. I practice that in training mode and the damage output is 304, which is pretty good. But the combo Flame Kick, FADC, Ultra 1 is not only easier to do, it does more damage at 348. My question is, why bother doing the combo with the Chicken Wing at all if it does less damage and it’s harder to do? Why wouldn’t you just do Flame kick, FADC, Ultra 1 all the time since it’s more damaging?
Flame kick->FADC->Chicken wing->Ultra 1=304
Flame kick->FADC->Ultra 1=348 (more damage and easier to do)
So why do players prefer doing the more difficult less damaging combo more?
