Yeah I cant do that at all thanks to negative edge. It always turns out B+3,1 dash Blade Spin. I use a lot more 2,1,2 slices(or 2,1 slices) and B+3,2 slices. Sometimes I do B+3,1 Blade Charge but thats usually it
He has a nice 30% combo that's relatively easy to land.
B3, 1, Dash, B1, 1, Blade Charge.
The timing is quite critical, you cant hit the B1, 1, too early or the charge will miss, and due to negative edge, it's quite easy to hit the charge after just the B1, and you'll lose about 7% for that.
EDIT: Yeah slices is good for corner combos and actually its not a bad wake up. Hmm, once you corner people with Baraka, you can make it very hard for them.
In light of hearing that Baraka is getting his B3, 1, corner trap removed, I have since found a NEW corner trap, that should work after the patch, and does more damage than my usual corner combo of:
Jp, B3, 1, B3, 1, B3, 1, B1, F2, Spin....41%
If the above combo is going, then have no fear, I have found something else that does more damage and should work due to a reset normal he has.
Jp, B3, 1, U3, B3, 1, B1, F2, Spin....does about 44% damage. The U3 acts like a reset and does a lot of damage on it's own, but you have to input the B3, 1 nearly straight away after the U3 as the window afterwards is tiny.
How many other characters can do this much damage in the corner without meter. Sometimes I use Ex spin instead of regular for maximum damage with about an extra 5% damage added.
Jade had her boomerang reset nerfed, but is getting a buff somewhere to compensate. I REALLY hope Baraka gets a buff if that corner juggle goes. I mean you do that twice, mid screen, for a nice combo. Hope that isn't removed as well
I don't know. The most you can do that, in a corner combo, is three times. If it's removed so you can't even do it twice, that means he'll lose his midscreen, B3, 1, dash, B3, 1, dash, F2, 4, which does a nice 30% (more with a jp). He has other damaging midscreen combos, but that one is kind of my B&B midscreen combo with him.
The only thing i'll be annoyed at, is if LK keeps his loop and NW keeps his. By the way, im a huge NW fan/player, but his F3, 1, 2 can be looped in the corner FOR MASSIVE DAMAGE. And im sure EVERYONE is sick of that lame , 3, 2, 1 combo of Lui Kang being done on them over and over no matter where they are.
And I bet both those guys keep those...
@Wuzzli, as far as I can tell, Baraka still has his B3, 1 trap....
However, I have got a couple of really good "replacement" corner combos with Baraka now.
