    This may already be known, and maybe it's escapable, I don't know. I'll let you be the judge.

    I was messing around in "training mode" and found this. Please comment/complain/whatever!

    IF this is legit and works, then anytime you knock them down and throw a bomb and they jump over you, you win lol

    This falls into the timing, like anything else, where you place a bomb and lock them down, allowing them to move but not allowing them to create enough proximity so the bomb still gets them. I've used the air throw to reset the bomb counter before, but never as an infinite method. This is pretty useful I would say, if you time it right. Most people don't realize how far you bounce and for how long after the air throw. I love dropping a close bomb against a teleporter, baiting a TP, and then block and air throw on the bomb. I've been trying to teach it to Summoning. I'll give this a shot next time.

    Awesome, I'd like to see Cyrax as a true force. This just might help him do that.
  7. That is ill! The timing of the air throw seems a bit challenging with the situation whether you make the grab or not. I agree with seeing Cyrax at a true force too, Konqrr.

  9. It's a cool reset method, but it's pretty similar to the bomb > aa hp > jk reset infinite method I already use. Unfortunately I don't see this affecting his game hardly at all, it's just too similar to what he already can do, though it could give him another option in certain specific situations.

    That's not to say the reset infinites don't move him up. It's just hard to say where.
  11. Well they do help, of course, I'm just saying he's already got a large number of highly situational infinites and 100% combos, and I don't think this is going to be significantly better than what he's got in most situations. The bomb > hp > jk reset infinite in particular is extremely similar to this one, but I can see this one being easier in certain situations, which would make landing an infinite a little more viable. The other reason I don't see this making him significantly better is simply because it relies on the opponent making the mistake of jumping over you without being able to stuff your air throw.

    I do want to experiment with the practicalities of this though, maybe there's an aspect to it I haven't thought of yet.

    Being able to set up an infinite off any given situation where there is a bomb would be a great help to him, then it's a matter of the Cyrax players proving they are usable with consistency.

    This is the key to making him move up on the tier list.
  14. That's probably the biggest problem, bombs are already a big chore to get out and set up to begin with.
