CvS2 Leftovers ’08

January 24th, 2012 8 comments

These tool-assisted combos were prepared for a video project proposed by D44-Bas. He wanted to use them as bonus materials for some sort of CvS2 advanced tactics tutorial, but never got around to completing a draft. Since then, these clips have encountered repeated debacles and delays – eventually ending up in numerous scattered community projects. Now nearly four years later, i’ve decided to reunite the whole set for the sake of completeness.

0:02 Dan makes an exceptional combo dummy in CvS2 because his Chohatsu Densetsu super bestows 1/8 meter with each of its first five Taunts, then 3/8 meter from the final Taunt. Thanks to that hefty refund, C-Morrigan gains access to four bars of meter. Her lvl1 Soul Phoenix connects after she initiates lvl2 Valkyrie Turn, fulfilling its cancelability requirements. Canceling into lvl1 air Soul Phoenix then creates a free juggle state and resets the juggle counter, allowing both hits to connect. Valkyrie Turn also locks the screen in place until Morrigan reaches neutral state, thereby creating a temporary pseudo-corner situation.

0:14 Kyo’s lvl3 Serpent Wave barely catches Iori’s descent from an air-to-air j.D+HP sudden knockdown. OTG LP Flashing Slash connects at maximum distance in the corner.

0:20 Todo’s crossup j.LK triggers Blanka’s Counter Attack facing the wrong direction, then F+MK slides into its last active frame. Todo’s momentum carries him over Blanka’s lvl2 Shout of Earth, which can only be mashed using one kick to avoid unintended special moves. Canceling into whiff LP Rolling Attack creates a free juggle state for vertical j.HP to connect.
