Kombo Challenge Tips
11/17/2008 01:20 PM EST
I thought we could start a thread where people can post which Kombo Challenges they are having trouble with and then we can try to provide some assistance with distance, location, anything that may help. One I was having trouble with was Kitana #9, very difficult. Below is just some general tips. Please feel free to post some additional tips as well and I will add!

General Tip 1:

When doing the Kombo Challenge select Darkseid as your opponent. It seems to be easier to juggle him. The reason I think that is because of Kitana Challenge #9. I tried it probably a hundred times with no luck but then I chose Darkseid as my opponent and I got it twice in five minutes.

General Tip 2:

Try practicing smaller peices of the kombos. If there is a difficult transition, start right before the transition so you can get the timing down instead of starting from the beginning again. This helps as you can break the kombo down into two or three pieces and then just practice putting them together.

General Tip 3:

Do not button smash. I am guilty of this, I will buffer (pressing the button while still in animation from previous move) a button combination and then not trust it recognized it, then press it again. I've found the most success with being exact. If there is three attack 1s, press the button three times. This may sound silly because you obviously press the buttons that are given but try being aware of double button presses or "smashing".

Again, I haven't completed all of the challenges yet but I'm sure we have someone on the board that can help, so post the challenge you need assistance with!

Green Lantern #3:
This Kombo requires you to perform 3 jumping attacks (the first two are attack 2 and the third is attack 3) followed by the wall punch (back, forward, attack 4). The key to getting this one is on the first two jumping attacks strike them quickly and while still high in the air, but on the third jumping attack delay the hit for as long as you can. Also, this Kombo should be performed while your opponent is against a wall. It will take a little bit before you know how long before you land and can't get the hit off and what's too early. Once you figure out the timing on this extremely delayed jumping attack, you should have no problem landing the wall punch while your opponenet is still in the air.

Scorpion #10:
This one's tough. Though I think there are several things to remember. Don't pin your opponent directly against the wall, this will make the end of the kombo almost impossible, rather have him at an angle against the wall. If you get the angle right (not too hard to do) you should have enough resistance for your opponent to stay close on the 'back, attack3' action to land your air hit. Once you have that down, make sure that on the first jumping attack (Jump towards, Attack 1) that it is actually counting as part of the kombo. I struggled with this part, so practice before hand to make sure it counts the first 4-5 hits of the combo. After that the ending is a little tricky but if you have the pro-move down for Scorpion you should be fine.

Yeah, agreed. I would love to hear some helpful hints. I also couldn't agree more with your tips. I found myself smashing as well, and then i learned to practice the end of the combo first and work my way back to the start of it. I haven't completed anyone's combo challenge, but i do have like 8 or 9 done on half the roster, just everyone has one or two i can't seem to pull off.

I have trouble with the jump punches. The hitbox is so awkward. I'm trying to do Scorpion's 10th and after b+3 I'm supposed to knock them back up to continue with jump+2 but I can only get this to hit against the wall(and then I can't finish the rest). I swear I did it in the middle a few times but it didn't count.

Same with Green Lantern's #3. I have had them all connect and it refuses to recognize it. Can anyone do it?

One of liu kangs is like that for me. I pull it off perfect. Pro move and all, but it won't recognize it.

Oh well.
