The latest episode of the AirBehr Dojo was recently uploaded to Youtube. Today’s installment covers p-linking. By now, all of you likely know how to utilize this technique. However, this guide goes over some advanced p-linking concepts, such as when to use two or three buttons, how to p-link jabs and shorts, and p-linking special moves.

    You don’t really need to mention that/when something was uploaded in the lead in. You can just start “Today’s installment of AirBehr Dojo  covers p-linking. ” Just a bit annoying to see all the video articles intro that way; we know it’s uploaded, we want to know what it is.

       there’s a bit of unprofessional production in these but they’ve always been this way. it’s forgivable because of the great info and examples they provide. i agree it’s a little annoying but whatevs

      • It’s not the videos he’s commenting on, it’s the reporting *on* the videos.  I kind of agree.  If it’s embedded on the front page of SRK, we know that it’s a video that’s been uploaded.

        Kind of just filler with what we already know.  We want to know the meat of it.

      • Ben Brocka

        Yeah, like casperOne said, I meant the copy in the articles, not the videos.

  • Jumpyburd

    if you know the timing of your move theres really no need to plink. just my opinion..

    • pootnannies

       maybe if you just play at home on the same setup. if you go to tournaments and they use ps3 or xbox and you don’t have both at home or you don’t use the same monitor/tv they use… well then you better start practicing plinking. it’s not hard, similar to kara throws but if you use a controller you probably have to slide your fingers across buttons really fast or something.
      you don’t want to lose because the timing is different from your setup at home or a friends house or at a tourney right? plinking helps this by just one frame but it’s necessary in today’s gaming setups.

      • Jumpyburd

        Ahh yes. I see what you mean. I been to a couple tourneys and the monitors or whatever they had setup was bad.

  • TabbyNat

    Can you really plink cr.jab like that? If you missed the first frame, wouldn’t cr.short come out instead?

    • StunningBiceps

      Yeah, he was wrong about that bit.

      Also, I plink for frame perfect punishes.
