MK11 SHANG TSUNG Discussion

FWIW, f24 screaming soul cancel b11 lift microdash j1 d2 does 281 dmg. If you suspect breakaway, just d2 is 276 dmg through it (and 265 if they didn't break).

Is there a custom variation(s) that is universally agreed-upon or are we still feeling things out?

Also have the week off of Christmas so don't have a lot of things going on, would anybody be interested if I did a video for them? Like a visual representation of there combos or some tech they would like to post but can't have the time to do the video.

Let me know.

omg that actually reaches, though it looks like it doesn't. Thanks, I missed that, because it is pretty specific, though I got it down after a moment. Doesn't really make much of a difference damage-wise on hit, but half the bar is back after the combo anyway.
Just some questions for Shang mains.
What is your and everyone’s best Shang Kustom? What does everyone think of the Cetrion and Jacqui match up? Is crashing Flames with exploding corpses a good idea after damage nerf?

Alright time to learn a new character to keep things fresh.

Can Shang still do starter into exploding corpse into juggle into reptile slide KB mid screen?
@Evil Canadian like in your Shang video?

It feels like Shang is in the minority in the cast that's truly blessed with multiple strong, viable custom configurations.

The only thing NRS changed IIRC was the launch on b12(kb) so all combos you've seen should work but I don't personally use the move so I don't know what the optimal are.

But yes, Shang has awesome customs. Combo extenders in Ermac, Rain, Ex Corpse, Ground Inferno and Screaming Souls, along with other useful moves and his base kit is great.

I'm not a Shang main, but I do enjoy playing him and I didn't see any sort of match critique thread so I guess I'll just post it here. Looking for some feedback on how to improve. Thanks in advance!
