Question about sub zero damage and loss of damage on 2,1,4 combo

#1yespuhyrenPosted 5/6/2012 5:02:51 AM
Hey, this may be stupid to some of you, but I just noticed this:

If you jump 2 to get them in the air, then dash 2, 1, 4 slide, you get 5 hits 25% damage

If you just do the 2,1,4, slide, you get one less hit, same combo,and deals 4 hits 26% dmg

Can anyone let me know if Iím missing something obvious?

Also, if you freeze them first, you get 6 hits 21% damage. Do you lose a certain amount of damage or something at a certain point?

Juggle combos scale. I don't know the exact rate at which they do so in MK9, but long story short, each successive hit will do a lower proportion of its normal damage. Hence why some combos into X-ray end up doing less damage than a standalone X-ray would have done.

Example for bold text: Kitana's Fan Lift > X-Ray = 26% when her X-Ray alone does 36%.

The damage scaling due to Fan Lift is just nuts.

Reptile's 4 = 9%

1,2 4 = 7%

Well scaling in this game is a factor. If any combo starts in the air, it's going to be scaled terribly than if it had started on the ground. Some moves scale more than other. I.E. Subz 214 rather than 212 is better for xray combos ect
