here's the vid of a local MK9 tourney in manila where the scorpion player made it to the top 4 (16 man tourney).

this isn't me btw...but who cares, watch for the VERY last move that got this our kudos.

The MK9 crowd here is growing slowly but surely...eventually, the MK9 tourneys will be just as big as teh SF4 tourneys here. :)

Enjoy the amazing comeback!

PS: The group's a primarily SF4 crowd with a MK tourney side event...so forgive the "poor commentating" (this was the first MK tourney ever!)

I agree Retic, that match is something, probably the best game of the tourney. What an amazing comeback by Scorpion (props to Insane).
 
Not bad at all. I employed similar tactics last time I was at Wednesday Night Fights. Mr Naps did a good job of reading his opponent well after those safejumps. I'd like to see how well he handles a strong Reptile, Sub, KL, Kabal, or Raiden.

I still wish Scorp wasn't so risky...

Wait a minute, what the hell is going on with the whiffed spears in that vid? The first two instead of the spears going forward off the screen they retract causing the recovery to be a lot faster than normal. and they were NOT blocked. I tried to see if I could do it in practice mode but to no avail. There something I don't know about?

Marcus? Nice to see you here too. :p

Wish I could play Scorpion as well as Insane. The only reason why I'm "putting up" with Scorpion is that MK Legacy chapter on him :)

@Slips:

Holy SHi----....you're right!!!! Gotta ask the dude (he's a regular at the pinoy2dfighters.com forums...a mod/admin if I'm not mistaken. Fairly new to those forums)

@Everybody else:

Keep an eye on the spears at 0:18 and 0:30. These are the spears Slips was talking about!!
 
Guys,

The spear at 00:18 retracted because Cyrax teleported. Its like when u do a jump in kick and Cyrax teleports u get stuck in the air for a second or less, similar to when somebody blocks your jump in kick. i think the spear got treated in a similar fashion and retracted, as the spear-hit got considered as a block confirm.

The spear at 00:30 on the other hand i think was just a glitch or something. if you notice, the 00:30 spear retracted when cyrax went for an AA grab (This was in close range). But in a similar scenario at 02:03 the same thing happens (this is mid range), only this time the spear caught cyrax when he went for the AA grab. Must be some weird hit box issue or somethin...m not sure.

Jus my opinions tho :p

Had to put it on mute, but good matches.

For your combos that don't end in a reset, why don't you end with 1 1 4? I believe you are (almost) guaranteed a hellfire afterwards.

Mainly because 212 does more damage and 21 TP keeps you close to your opponent to keep pressure without sacrificing damage. 114 doesn't guarantee a hellfire at all.

PEACE

Very solid Scorpion gameplay, very impressive, Kung Lao is an annoying matchup as Scorpion :/

A few reset situations I saw you create really impressed me, like low 1 into teleport against jump in punches, that's pretty interesting and I'm gonna try to add that into my gameplay.

Thanks for sharing these videos

Thanks guys, yea Scorpion has got some decent stuff, the d1 has a huge hitbox so it makes great anti-air. Sometimes I get a standing 1 instead which is what kept happening to Jody which is why the jk were working. When done right, not even a jump kick can beat a d1. I just wish he could attack off his pokes safely like everyone else in the cast. Everyone else can cancel their d1 and d4's into safe special moves which is a big deal. Not Scorp though. Ive gota some ideas with Kung Lao that might work out, I'll let you all know.

Oh yeah
We need to have more scorpion's like that and whats slips did on EVO he beat the best Kabal onlineTony. We can't have Noobs making our character looking like trash we need to stand up and go to more tournament. like that scorpion against the Cyrax on the second video he had the crowd hyped over his epic comeback. besides i'm sick of seeing reptile and sub zero but no scorpion's.

Sorry I'm so late but when the Spear hits invincible frames the recovery time is cut in half :)
 

Insane

Toasty!
Just watched those videos of Slips' Scorpion and I gotta say his Scorpion is sick! Those mix-ups and resets are great!
