no. B2 then ji3 tele punch
you used to be able to do b2 ji3 telepunch 2u3 for like 36%

oh sorry i misunderstood, closest thing you could do that now is b2, dash, 112~telepunch,ij3~MB telepunch,nj3~telepunch for 34%

on smaller hitbox chars the double j3s can be rough alright, thats why i have the j2 j3 versions listed also :)

Tony-T once posted this video with all these mb Hell fire reset combos. are these still around? are they viable? inescapable?

most of them were didnt work on full cast, the combos listed in op with MB hellfire are inescapable ones (theres a small video in the hellfire setup thread i posted while ago) they give scorpion his best damage outside interactable/stage bounce use for 1 bar+trait

1bar+trait stage bounce combo swag....

11~trait,3~stage bounce, b3, j3~telepunch, j3~telepunch, MB hellfire - 38% + 9% - 47% (50% with j2)
(hellfire not escapable)
(same damage using b1~trait instead of 11~trait)


:cool:

Is this guy better post patch? He seems harder to fight now. I'm looking to beef up my arsenal of characters. I use the MAIN MAN as my MAIN but lately ive been developing Deathstroke as well. I like Zatanna but she is fiddly, definitely one of the best in the game but you have to use her to absolutely full potential.

Any who, how is Scorpion now? This part of the forum seems like a ghost town..

he is better than before the last patch hit yes since he got a bit of damage back.
if you want to discuss more pre-post patch scorpion or general discussion on how the character now please use the scorpion patch changes thread or the general discussion thread, thanks :)

messing around with his corner stuff, didn't see this in the op

B2, B2, F22U3 xx Trait, F22U3 xx MB Spear, F22U3 (first hit of U3) xx tele punch. 46% 1 bar and trait, sets up the vortex.

Corner Interactable Reset that uses the same combo:

B2, B2, F22U3 xx Trait, F22U3 xx MB Spear, forward dash, J2, interactable, OTG MB Hellfire*. 42% + interactable + OTG MB Hellfire (stage dependant) 2 bar and trait reset.
MB Hellfire OTG is guaranteed after certain corner interactables (Brainiac Laser in Lex's Lab is one of them). They can't wakeup, roll, anything.

EDIT: just found out you can get more damage and another spear combo after the j2. J2, 3 xx Brainiac Laser, MB Spear, B3, J2, J3 xx Teleport, 2U3 xx Spear. Video shows both the OTG and the double spear reset.

Cage Redfield with the 46% u posted the MB spear will whiff after the f22u3 on alotof characters leading to a free full combo punish from your opponent

also be nice if you made a video using information from two different sticked threads with stuff i found to a least get a mention :(

also 3~interact does not work on the brain, can not only be escaped by simply holding up, you'll get punished aswell.

Welp, i had no idea that the otg was already found. I had just started messing with Scorpion last night and didn't know that it was found by someone else, which is why i didn't tag anyone in the post. As for the corner combo and reset, again, my first time messing around with the character and didn't realize it wasn't listed due to it being a character specific link. And I had assumed 3 xx interactable worked due to it's hit advantage saying it was +20 or somewhere in that area, which is plenty enough time to setup something like that. Again, very sorry for not seeing the resets had been made already in two different threads.

ah sure if you didnt know it cant be helped, didnt know you we new to the character, my bad.
well theres two sticked thread that shows all the interactables that u can get MB hellfire after and the other thread is the method of getting unscaled unescapeable (bar super) interactables, you should take a read of them to expand on what you been messing with :)
theres good few unescapeable MB hellfire combos in op aswell u should check out

the +20 off 3 is the hit advantage, the advantage being using when a normal is canceled into interactable is called "cancel advantage".
it was a big thing in mk9, the data is not given in game so u have to work it out yourself in the lab sadly.

example of how this works: if there is a 123 string and the 2 has a cancel adv of +5 and the but the 3 in the string has a start up of 13 that means there is a 7 frame gap to interupt beore the 3 becomes active
 
Another scorpion combo. Cross up combo 46% 2 bars
Note: jump 3 still crosses up but it's much harder to do. It also hits crouching opponents(all characters)

Smash King nice j3 combo you can sneak in a 2u3~leg takedown at the end instead of 11~spear for extra damage.

but last one uses 3 bars not 2, bounce cancels cost 2 bars when done in combo rather than the 1 bar for a standard mb f/b3 outside a combo
also j2,3~trait only works in certain stance, you should mention that in your vid
