Question Uppercutting mid-combo timing

Hey guys, i've been looking for ways to expand my already very long combos with some uppercuts. I've seen some videos where you can uppercut a little early and have enough time to do something else...

anyone got the timing for those down? any tricks? I haven't quite got the timing down.
I want to uppercut someone into a GS or something similar :) I think that would bump my combo damage to about %60 or so without morphing.

I've only seen JAP do it in a video, just very hard to take in the slowness of his uppercut. It used to be the case for me roundhouse after the EX GS but now I got those 100% of the time :)

Ever see that in a live fight?

I'm a crappy player but I can tell you to experiment with each fighter, some recover faster from doing uppercuts then others. I refuse to uppercutt with Noob cause it seems too slow.

lol shang has both slow startup, hit window, and recovery... i WISH i had noobs uppercut haha.
it's only good for uppercutting jax and nightwolf during their forward dash/punch and scorpion during teleports.

It's so slow that if you uppercut at the same time as any other character, you'll most likely win 100% because it come out afterwards.
 
The most important thing is the height of your opponent. The uppercut has to hit him above your head. Easy to set up like UpSkull Jip 221 cGS mGS ExGS dash forward (not even a full dash, to know exactly you need to practice a bit) uppercut. Uppercut will launch them behind you so you need to dash there as soon as you recover. At that point i do f4 3 Soulsteal to end the combo. Without a dash but with the right timing you will uppercut him forward and can do either exGS or a soulsteal(which will end your combo for I think 51%). You can start with f434 for less damage. The most damaging 1 bar combo with this I beleive is UpSkull Jip 221 cGs mGs fGs dash exGs Uppercut him above yourself f43 Soulsteal. This one I beleive is either 52% or 53%. JAP has got a lot of these combos in his video here. He also does some fancy stuff just for swag like using 3 uppercuts and 3 exGs in one combo:)

I'm gonna try these and make em even bigger haha :) I'm confident i'll reach 60% without morphing hehe. I've been doing a lot of R&D work ;)

On the contrary, I feel that Noob's uppercut is VERY underrated. Yes, it's not the quickest uppercut, but it has GREAT range and it sweeps pretty far over his head too. Plus, a successful uppercut sends the opponent pretty far away, which is just where Noob wants them

EDIT: Sorry for posting Noob stuff in a Shang thread...... :oops:

I hear you. Sonya has the be one, it's like instant oats, nice wide swing and instant recovery. Kano comes a close second, his uppercut is absolutely a pleasure to use.

Kanos uppercut is 100% OP. 9 times outta 10 you shoulda uppercutted instead of upball. It nearly always reverse uppercuts crossovers and can be extended with a d1 choke or d1 upball. It has a decent recovery, and a top tier startup. Just some Kano knowledge for you shang users..



Dicks.

Well yeah there's ups and downs with everyone, the speed on Noobs uppercut outweighs the good. It's too slow for my playstyle.

Keyword being MY playstyle. Some people want power over speed, some want speed. I personally want the latter along with good mix ups. Maybe that's why I like Skarlet.

Examples?
With Smoke you can do jip 3d12 njp dash 32, 32, dash uppercut, d1 smoke bomb (f4 reset) or jk throw and tele to put them back in the corner if you have no meter or rather not waste it.

With Shang Tsung you can do jip f434 ground skull dash uppercut ~ 12, f434 up skull.

Finally got it to work, differently though. With you In the corner (sweep distance away), up skull, jip, f4,3,4 mGS, fGS, ex fGS, walk back 1/2 sweep distance, uppercut, if he pops behind you, f4,3,4 cGS. Pretty nasty :) I gotta perfect the timing tho, its hit or miss right now. But sweet for trading places in the corner. Timing is pretty tight like °round housing after an up skull mid combo°™ ;)
