Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition pro Brian_F is starting a new quick tips series for Balrog players looking to add nuance to their game. Today’s first discussion breaks down the applications of Balrog’s “Under Impact” target combo (LK,MK,HK), and important information regarding V-Trigger timing with it.

It’s tempting to complete the string when you have V-Trigger on deck — but on both hit and block, Brian argues, you’re better going into VTC on the 2nd hit. This nets you both more damage and frame advantage, as demonstrated in the video above.
