Coliflowerz Will Help You Quickly Learn How To Play With Ralf Jones In King of Fighters XIV In This Quick Video Tutorial

Coliflowerz has recorded and uploaded a King of Fighters XIV Ralf Jones quick tutorial that will help you learn the basic gameplay mechanics of the character! Normals, special moves, super special moves, combos and more are explained thoroughly in this tutorial video!

Ralf has the potential to do an insane amount of damage, but getting there takes a lot of precision and timing. Thankfully, his basic combos still do a decent amount of damage, but it’s a bit disappointing. I usually avoid impractical combos, but Ralf’s higher damaging combos ride the line between bread-and-butter and CMV-only, so I included both them, and less damaging, but much more practical combos.

I touched upon the two precise timings required for his advanced combos in the video briefly, but I wanted to really touch on the second one. The developers decided to make the landing frames of hcb BD cancelable into Px4 or ACx4, which is unusual for an EX move. If you cancel it as soon as possible, you’ll get a measly three hits and be unable to follow up with anything. If you don’t cancel and just juggle after the hcb BD fully recovers, then you’ll get 4 hits, but only enough room to juggle with a cl. A. You want to be able to cancel in between those two times, which is way harder than it sounds. Practice vigorously, and you’ll be rewarded with one of the most damaging combos in the game. Note that you can juggle even if you only have four hits; you just need the last portion of the attack to hit twice.
