Sup bros.

Killing some time inbetween classes today. Thought I would try to make up some corner combos that use f4 in the meat of the combo instead of using it just as a combo ender/reset transition.

I found that in the corner, you can do the following combo:

(jip) 3d12, njp, 3d12 < f4~sb, f4~exsb

where "<" is a backdash. If you EX the first sb as well as the second, you are giving yourself 2 chances at the reset. If you don't EX the first one but you do EX the second one, the gravity on that second one is such that you are nearly guaranteed to hit the reset on your second f4. Consistency with under 20mins practice was 90%, so this is really fucking good.

Here's a video showing this combo and some variants on it, I didn't hit up everything but I don't have the time to make anything longer right now. Hope you guys like it, should be nice to spice things up a bit instead of just facerolling 32's all day :)

I like the idea of this, but as a long time smoke main and resident smoke pro, I think this is too situational to deserve it's own thread. If only I knew a mod who could close this.....

LBSH. I like it, I like that it encourages the player to be looking for a "Hit Confirm". And 2 chances to do stupid amounts of damage is nothing to scoff at. Good shit sir.

I like how it kinda guarantees the reset. Good stuff as usual FO.

EX Ovi should launch
I like the enthusiasm but spending 2 bars to do the same thing that 1 bar does, which you can then use the other bar to do again, seems pointless!

Well if you do it right you're only going to be spending 1 bar.... this is essentially for closing out rounds when your opponent does not have breaker as with 2 shots you are nearly guaranteeing that at least 1 of those 2 EX bombs will reset... besides, how many other characters can spend 2 bars to DOUBLE the damage their combo does? Just Cyrax and Jax.

Spending extra meter to "almost guarantee" the reset in a critical situation is a bad idea when you could just take a few extra minutes time to practice hitting the reset combo, and use that meter to make damn sure you made your point.

Fair enough if you struggle hitting the reset combo, this 2 bar version is ideal, but if your playing smoke to the best of your ability then you should learn to do the reset properly and not fall back on this. (Not taking shots btw, just saying truths!)
