Ask me about my Nemesis agenda
Hi guys. I could not read all the threads looking for this topic but please help me out:
What is the trick with F4 1+3 2222 string to come out on hit? I tap 2222 like madman but it does not work.

I could do it 1/20 times... after a juggle combo... I think I miss the point or I am too slow for it? :)
You have to start to press 2222 just before Sonya kicks the opponent in the chest.

Thanks but I can not make it work.
Just before which hit? There is a hit from F4 and 2 hits from "throw". Before which hit? I tried all of them but could not do it yet.
I even use throw button to input insanely fast but that's not the method lol.

EDIT1: I could do it once and it was before the 3rd hit I guess. But can not do it again lol.
EDIT2: Ahh I found it. right before 3rd hit and need fast 2222 then.
It is not that easy though. :)

Thank you!

It is even worth it or rather use 0 on block restand in case of doing F4 1+3 in neutral to check button check? +60 damage and knock down is the reward for full string.
I am not an experienced Sonya player at all but interested in (I just see that 0 on block up close is probably not that good for her).

anyone have footage of sonya matches against good keepaway? like were they actually play keepaway and not grow impatient and just walk into footise range after a while
 
Does anyone have any luck AA'ing with D4? Scar has a sick AA combo off it he was using often last weekend. I think he goes into a F4 after it.
 
Was it d3 or d1?
D4, the slow, energy ring long reaching down. Pretty sure that's D4. He used it consistently when people jumped in at him, low profiling their jump in and bumping them up enough to do a F4 or some sort of advancing combo. Check Dreamhack footage.

The moment you see Sonya punch them in the gut, mash out 2 as fast
 
Anyone try using the kustom ability d3 in the air? Does a quick double overhead. Basically allows you to start a combo off a long-reaching double overhead air kick. I like it so far.

I always have it equipped, it's not as useful as her dive kick but it atleast gives me a better jump in kick and it can be used as a cross up tool like chunli,s head stomp.

So I just thought I would jump in say hi... just picked up Sonya and she's quickly become my main over EB and Jax. Is there really any debating that she is 99% likely the strongest char in this game? Lol

By the way quick question, anyone else using JK to F21 into combo or is there a better suggestion out there? Seems like it works well since she darts forward quicker on that string.

Not only is it better in terms of her auto moving closer but it's also safer cause its not punishable among block. For me its preferable to jump kick, f4 into combo.

Just new to Sonya & having trouble with the ring cancels, any advice would be appreciated. I could do Liu Kangs easy enough in mix but on this I can barely even get the EX ring to come out, never mind the cancel.

Cheers.
