Hey guys... It's probably already known, but just dicking around with Cyrax in training today after the patch and I came up with a 36% one bar mid screen combo for him. Idk if it's good or could be better, but do with it what you will.

F21 exdb1 rc 4 bf1 df2 f43 dd2 d2 df3 f131 4 db4 (or instead of 4 db4 you can throw or ex throw or possibly some other shenanigans).

if you F43 into DB4 EX. 21 slightly on fall, you can still Net. so after that im sure you can get 4 bombs out afterwards, Far hover- F43- Far hover- F43- far hover - 114 then you get the idea.

This still works from a b2 (or any air net):

b2, 4~bf1, df2, f43, df3, d2, dd3, f34, wb, 4~db1 - 34% (moving forward)

Ir used to be 38%, but another nerf is that Cyrax's combos are scaling more.

Now, it would be useful to find another BNB moving backwards from an air net

Just noticed this...

if you do F43 ex db4 delayed 21 net df2 F43 (and the F4 whiffs at the right time) ... the 3 in that connects and knocks them into the bomb and the combo damage resets. Now, does this mean the bomb counter resets too? I have no idea and I'm not a tech guy... but two combos for the price of one possibly? Idk, do what you will. I could also be retarded. lmao

I feel so limited, if you want to have good damage into setups, you need bar.
Also the 4 bomb restriction is outta nowhere so is the net nerf

Some corner combos:

27% meterless standing(was 32%)

36% HTB 1 bar into setup

30% throw 1 bar into setup

34% OH 1 bar into setup

(Notice how most cost a bar and still do less than prepatch optimal)
 

huh

Couple of combos from B2, moving backwards (also works with NJP and ex db1 starters)

b2, 4~bf1, step forward, dd2, d2, dd3, 21~db2, wb, 4~dd3, jb4, db2, db1, 4,df1 - 32% (moving backwards)

b2, 4~bf1, db2, step forward, 4~dd3, jb4, df2, d2, dd3, f34, 4~df1 33% (moving backwards)

These still need some space behind the netted opponent. If anyone comes up with better BNBs moving backwards, please tag me.

Max meterless damage I could find from a hard to block setup:

dd3, b3d4, njp, d3u4~db4 30%

There are no Cyrax mains anymore, Shut it down bruh.
im still a cyrax main, but ill be playing bo alot more since he has everything and everyone seems to think he is bottom for sum reason.


i don't know anymore. omg johnny buffs, how did that happen, its a fix, but honestly he didnt need anything. im fine with the fix, but im just depressed for Cyrax right now.

the only thing that made him fun and hella cool, was The diversity of combo extenders in air. now he is like Autistic Cyrax. they didn't nerf his game, they nerfed his IQ


top players better quit being salty and get this corrected. #bring back net, just nerf Reset.

Put the AI on auto block and see if it still combos. My guess is since you delay 21 that they are right above the ground and they fall to the ground before the 3 hits since the hit advantage of net was reduced.
 

huh

I thought the patch notes said you could do 3 air and 3 low in one combo? So 6 total bombs?
Yeah it says that. But you can still do something like:

111~bf1, df2, f43, df2, f43, df2, 114~dd2, d2, db1, wb, 212

As you can see, there are 4 air bombs there.

However, if you do 3 air bombs, then a ground bomb, you cannot do the 4th air bomb. It seems to only work when you do the 4 air bombs one after the other. So, it can be 4 or 3 air bombs max, depending on how you sequence them. It's not clear what is the exact rule.

Play Bartitsu and get put out of the range of your F1. You'll see why people think he's bottom.

New hard-to-block B3D4 corner setup. 1-bar, 39%. You can something similar with B1-DB1 for an overhead option, then wake-up roll into (ex)DB1 to repeat.


New F43-(ex)DB4 1-bar 40% midscreen. (Adding a B2 to the end does not increase the damage.)


Don't know if these are max damage. Still brainstorming.

Ignorant slaves, how quickly you forget.
Great to see at least someone decided to stop complaining and get back into the lab to work with the changes. Good work Falcon lover.
Thanks man, i had alot more combos to work with and post but it was 2:00 AM at where i live (Kuwait) so i had to go to sleep. Going to update more today.

Nice stuff scar! So it costs bar now to get the htb to loop.

@xxFalcon Loverxx You can loop the corner htb without a bar it's just a lot less damage per cycle.

The same thing but using b1 or b3 instead of b3d4 is 23% instead of 27%.

So this is my meterless for now, until I find something I like more. 33% with 6 bombs, ending with a bomb on the ground.

Cyrax has been my favorite mk character since mk3 so this has been rough. He was literally the only character I cared about being in MKX. Finally got him and NRS goes crazy on him a month later :/

I will always play him online, but I doubt I will be pulling him out at any local tournaments any time soon.

I'm not a Cyrax main, I found this after like 10 minutes and I know you guys can get bigger damage. I don't understand how sacking one bar after a confirm to get an un-blockable reset that can add up to over 50% would be considered bad at all. He can still land hard knockdowns and set up un-blockables just fine. I'm glad to see people still using him, but the knee-jerk reaction to Cyrax being "ruined" or "un-viable" is literally the exact reaction we got from the community when Tanya got nerfed after CEO--and we all know how garbage tier she was then, right?
