Shooting Star - The Terry Bogard thread
« on: March 31, 2011, 10:06:10 AM »


Gameplay Overview

Gameplay Notes

-To win with Terry, you want to frustrate the opponent into jumping with Terry's nasty poking game, and pressuring them into cracking once they're in the corner.

Pros

-Ridiculous frame advantage

-High speed, power, and priority

-Incredibly good anti-air game

Cons

-His fireballs aren't too hot and have a little too much startup recovery

-No mindgames what-so-ever

-Only has two over-heads, and one of them, Power Dunk, is only worthwhile when used in a chain combo and even then is not too great

-If baited, his anti-airs can be punished severely, especially Rising Tackle

Normals


Far st. ;b

-Great reach

-Fast poke, helps keep people off of Terry

-Better suited for being about medium range when doing as a poke.


Far st. ;c

-Further reach than st. ;b

-Hits harder than st. ;b

-Slightly more recovery, but not a huge problem (Terry's frame recoveries are all insanely fast)

-Again, best suited to at medium range if used as a poke.


Crouching ;c

-Good reach

-Strong

-Can be canceled into?

just something quick, ppower when done near the corner and if your doing a combo in the corner you can adjust your combo to make all 3 geysers hit and juggle afterwards. if you use terry often enough its not that extremely difficult.

also his overhead, most people that actually know the game will rather take it. but when you do it mor often sometimes they rather block high or try to attck you out of it. when u think theyll try to block it high, cancel your dash or even the first frames of dash C into redkick. get the timing down and even when they try to punish your overhead cancel it into rising tackle. dont forget, with characters like terry and kim you can basically keep them in the corner, bait hpowers and reversals and kill them. with 1 mistake these characters do 1 bar damage in corner, without using s or ppower.

you also forgot to mention that f+B should not only be used as a stand alone attack, also its not a combo ender but rather a starter. cancel it into d+D or D and combo on. ps3 post = full.
In the end, there can only be XIII.

Great stuff, this is what I've been hoping to see on this board. I'll add in what you're saying later tonight.

actually his forward dash overhead when not playing online, if you just block high and look for the redkick and see it just block low if youve got the reactions. since redkick is so fast i dont think you can actually do this online, but rather predict it or just take the overhead. when done close the overhead into redkick cancel is sometimes even difficult to block when your in offline play.

some simple things, his crackshoot is usually the best combo ender for far ending combos. even after a far red kick combo you can still catch them for some damage with the cs.

after a far launcher combo (ending in  ;df ;c) a hard burning knuckle is a good knockdown and does good damage.

in corner always go for the  ;df ;a;c, feint,  ;df ;a;c;c chain for max damage if your close enough. in 1 plane an easier to hit combo after the feint is  ;a;b;fd ;c, into something a good ender (rt or bk for instance).

did i mention how good terry's feints are btw? some small bits of additional.
In the end, there can only be XIII.

Just a few viewpoints on Terry:

His overhead is great in my opinion because of it's distance. The best mind game for it is to occasionally cancel with firekick, which hits low. After the overhead, you can follow up with low attacks and hope they stand up to take them.

My favorite combo for him is just simple ;a, ;c, special combos. Either burn knuckle or firekick depending on how far away you are. I always try to follow up the firekick with a burn knuckle or rising tackle, too.

I never use the strong burn knuckle. If you use it against me, you're getting punished. Also, I find power charge and power dunk to be useless in this game.

Try not to use power wave, then burn knuckle. It's very predictable.

Crack shoot has a good range, in that there are times where if you combo with burn knuckle it won't hit but crack shoot will. If you do a normal combo and the opponent is ducking, and you're out of range for firekick, use crack shoot.

Hi guys! Long time no see. Nice to see this great game still have supporters.

I like to use Power Charge sometimes from medium range. It is very slow to come out, but leaves you at good frame advantage on block. Also, this can be used to punish from long range since you can juggle with Rising Tackle.

That being said, the slow startup makes it one of those moves you use once every 20 matches.

Sadly, the overhead part of the Power Dunk is punishable on both block and hit, which makes it useful only in combos where the damage is just sub-optimal compared to other options. Also, the move is slow and highly telegraphed, so don't bother.

Thanks for your inputs, God 2.0. Its great to have you here, and I'll deffinantly keep all you guys' tips on Terry in mind. I'll add in what I can once I come back to this, trying to just get the general move lists up first before I delve deeper but a lot of you probably know much more than I do.
