why is this thread so dead.
Because this thread is all about damage instead of practical stuff.

after watching the videos posted by asians and americans , with a little practice anything is possible in KOF.

By unpractical I didn't mean "too hard to do" though.

if its not hard to do, and you have the meter then i don't see the problem? If its distance to corner then , maybe it could be regarded as impractical but other than that , its all do-able.

A lot of the things in this thread is very practical and optimal, Tikok.

Which is why its dead I think, there's only so much practical stuff you can do on limited meter.

Its an excellent resource imo.

I kinda think this thread would be better if it were about practical stuff instead of "look how much damage my character can do with 1 drive !"

But yeah, after looking again, quite a lot of stuff here are practical, my bad~

Well, whats "practical stuff" to you then? What kinds of things besides damage?

If you want to make a thread about something more useful and practical, please feel free. :)

To me , this thread would be more interesting if we listed optimal stuff from different openings instead of always j.C > strong attack.

A lot of characters like Kula or Takuma need meter to combo off a low, some characters to get the most damage out of their lows need a link, like Yuri or NESTS Kyo.

I think that always listing everything in the best possible situation (landing a combo as soon as Hwa gets drunk, jump in combos, lvl4 drop kick combo for Raiden and so on) kinda defeats the point of this thread, which is to see how effective a character is without a lot of meter. Because these situations are the least likely to happen in a match.

But I may just be nitpicking though~ Please don't mind me~

I usually substitute the jump attack with a low even though I may get less damage. The jump attack starters are for the max damage. Any other starter (from a low or a ground attack) will make the damage a bit less. I would assume people have done the same thing.

I don't, I even said that I may just be nitpicking, so don't mind me too much. I'm just stating my opinion~

The thing is a lot of combos aren't doable from a low, either because they require a hard attack's hitstun (like Yuri's EX Saiha combos) , or because your character doensn't have a reliable way to keep comboing from a low without meter (like K' without EX Ein Trigger midscreen). It's not just about damage.

im a dedicated yuri player Ex saiha combos are very rare , however that doesnt mean that I dont know them or never go for them in a match. They do ridiculous damage I would be a fool not to take advantage of them given the chance. This thread list the possibilities thats all. Heck any good Yuri player will tell you her food comes from dp+k mixups, anti air sB into airthrow and her stupidly easy hd combo that can wall carry from anywhere on screen.

1 drive combos are not useless or impractical , they are there , hey have a purpose, some are obviously more likey to occur in matches than others due to the requirements of certain characters combos.

... Did I ever say that 1 drive combo are useless/impractical ? They are very useful, I'm totally aware of that.

I'm a dedicated Yuri player too, and EX Saiha combos aren't and shouldn't be rare because she can link c.B > c.C/s.C and these are very easy, hitconfirmable 3f/2f links.

Anyway, I am done posting in this thread, I merely stated my opinion once, I'm not gonna pointlessly argue about it.

they should be rare , because in order for that link to hit you need to hit the cr B really close, any cr B not done right next to your opponent then the link will not hit. its hard to confirm so generally people go for crB,crB, stB dpC , or dpC DC into dm or sdm.

you need to watch that video with MAgo and tokido VS E.T the taiwanese player. Thats a Yuri player right there.
