    You can keep doing f. MK cr LP st. HK, that's fine, it's when you hit the cr. LP cr. LP you need to try the st. HK link. And you need to get that overhead > cr. LP > st HK link down too.
    You did not go back in time, this is how the forums look.

    I only watched 12 and 13, but from what I saw, you're jumping in too much; especially with RH. You also need to practice your BnB combos, I think I only saw you do 1 and it was blocked. You should use your CSB as an anti air too, unless you're combo'ing it. I saw a lot of chances where you could've stuffed him with CSB.

    Excellent combo at :50 at 5&6. Does the ex jet upper usually connect after the lp.MGB?

    Here some of my dudley vids. Critiques welcomed

    A match vs a Ryu:
    I think the turning point was when my opponnent just throw out his super for nothing after i blocked his airbone tatsu crossup.

    Vs Claw:
    One of my worst matchup. Managed to make a come back win but in the end, I just put pressure like crazy without reflexion lol.
    I hate Claw's pokes and his backward somersault. Maybe i should have OS kidney MGB more.

    2 more of my worst matchup where i lost horribly:

    Vs El Fuerte:
    I got perfected by his horrible mix up in the 2nd round. I just don't know how to evade his "tortilla throw". Sometimes I just try to advance with j.hK but if i get too predictable i get anti air with his air throw :/
    Lost in the 3rd round while I tried to mash my corkscrew blow out!


    Vs Juri:
    Her low forward poke gives me a hard time... And i just jumped like crazy and got AA pretty bad. I don't know how to get past her annoying pokes.


    Thanks.

    I don't have any videos (as my recording process takes forever to record/put on youtube, but if someone wants to spar with me on PSN, then I'd be happy to get in a few matches. I'm maining Dudley and I'm trying to find another character to main with him, but I'm working on Dudley mostly, so any feedback is appreciated. My PSN = jordanman13 (no caps). Add me and send a message if you're interested in playing a match or two (i have a mic, so critiquing my gameplay will be easy if you have one too)

    OK, so one of the people on the forum I'm on uploaded a match of him playing endless mode with a couple of us. Here's a good show of how i play my Dudley (This is how i normally play, but keep in mind they are way better than me, as they have played pretty much since release, where as i just restarted about two weeks ago)

    Dudley (jordanman13) vs. Gouken (SUNsunMcNASTY):

    EDIT: Ignore the ones that ren't me, we played in a big group in Endless... I only played Dudley, but there was another Dudley in there as well, so watch for the PSN name under the health bar

    Ok ive noticed that the first 20 secs of the video you did random MGBs which is not good. The only time when you want to do an MGB like that is when you see your opponent doing random normals or if theyre trying to focus you. Like for example if a viper is doing a random feint you can predict it and do EX MGB. 2nd is work on your execution as in work on your mindgames and work on your combos and the last thing i just have to say is footsies like use your standing fierce more heres a website about footsies. sonic hurricane dot com Street Fighter Footsies Handbook, Chapter 1 Read all the chapters and if you work on all of that you will have a decent dudley.

    I only watched the first match since it's 5:30. There was good stuff in there,but I saw 3 things to work on.
    First, you are waaay too reckless on wakeup, Dudleys wakeup options are limited so BLOCK more! you ate to many meaties and that CS fadc since you were pressing buttons on pretty much every wakeup.
    Second thing was the CC, I love it as well but the sad truth it isn't that good, doing EX CC after blockstring/blocked MGB is a very bad habit and can easily cost you the round.
    Third , there was also a random MGB, if it wasn't a input error, don't do that since any half decent player blocks and punishes it badly.

    Critique for like, 80% of Dudley players:

    Stop doing f.hk, cr.lp, st.hk links. Just practice plinking your st.hk and link straight into it from f.hk. You get more damage, more stun and more range on it. With plinking, it's a 2 frame link, which is the same as linking f.hk into cr.lp.

    In AE this will be even more important as f.hk is getting it's range increased.

    weeeeeell yea, it's important you can do f.hk to s.hk, but SSF4 net code being the piece of shit it is I feel way more comfortable doing c.lp in between if I know I'm close enough.

    I don't know about the players in USA, but I'm from Finland and there is practically never and Finns playing ranked or at least it's a utter waste of time to search matches with same region, why the hell can't I search the scandinavian countries? or even filter the thousand 1 bar American players from the search?

    Anyway, this is why I have to pick 4-5 bar games from players from spain/germany/france/italy/etc middle European countries and it's a total lottery.
    Hardly ever can I find a lagless match and usually the lag is at least so bad that punishing lp shoryuken(f
    shotos everywhere) is a nightmare with anything else than c.mp xx mp.MGB
    it's stupid how many shotos just do another lp shoryu after a blocked one and it's ridiculous how hard especially ken's is to punish with f.mk or even s.hk if theres even a little lag, can't wait for AE...

    Definitely true. Getting that link down is crucial, and the link is so delayed it is an easy hit confirm without the extra jabs.

    Thanks for the input, also the ex cc wasn't after a blockstring it was to beat the jump in, followed by ultra which I wasn't able to land. You're right that I rely on it a bit too much though. I will try to use it less , I guess that's some habits I've gotten from playing gouken.

    Any other critiques from whomever on my other matches would be appreciated.

    Critique me gentlemen.

    I noticed after each time you focus crumple you always do the c.hk to juggle even when u have spare meter. You need to maximize those opportunities, try doing f+mk, s.hk, ex.mgb or if ur meterless a light uppercut -> l.mgb to push them in the corner. Gotta maximize those free punishes to maximum effect.

    I was mainly referring to the EX CC you used after block MGB :)

    and ok ok, I watched the 2 other matches now with a bottle of champagne, I'm just gonna give you some bullet points.

    - too often the opponent jumped over you and you just released the focus and he punished, dash away if the opponen jumps.
    - learn to anti-air U2, many missed opportunities
    - poor punishes(focus -> s.hp xx lp.MGB wtf? use f.mk-> s.hk xx ex.mgb, or even s.hk xx JU/ex.mgb)
    - poor stun punish (TC cancelled to nothing vs cammy, why?)
    - duck on wakeup if he throws a meaty projectile( vs the DJ)
    - ok to use EX CC as anti-air if timed right, but at least once you did random CC vs DJ
    - unconfirmed ex MGB from jump in (reaaaally bad, most can reversal ultra that shit and it HUUUUUURTS)

    I think HP.JU is better option if the opponent is a character that it hits.

    Stop telling people to do overhead into st.hk directly and tell them they are noobs just because YOU (whoever does this) have godlike execution.Some players can't plink (and yes, they live with that),other's just don't feel confortably with it.Cr.jab followup especially if the overhead is done upclose, is not bad.I guess you could critique a cr.jab over overhead if it was done from max range and it was clear it was going to wiff.
    Also, overhead ~ jab ~ st.hk xx EX MGB ~ duck upper does WAAAYYY more damage than overhead ~ nothing or overhead ,blocked hk xx ex mgb, and you get reversaled and lose.

    NOT to say it's bad, though.It is indeed very good for your game, but you cannot seriously critique someone for doing overhead ~ cr.jab ~ st.hk.I agree that 2 jabs after overhead are wothy of critique, but one is not.Players don't want to risk such a big opportunity considering Dudley feeds on them and can lose if he misses a combo.
    I guess Marn sucks for doing overhead ~ cr.jab, right?

    lol @ plinkers have no execution whatsoever when it comes to 1 framers. if you plink, you have no execution.

    well, c.lp as a confirm isn't that bad if you know the s.hk will hit(you are close enough), especially online where doing 1f can be a fucking lottery(as stated above). f.hk -> s.hk is optimal, but quit hating if people do c.lp in between, especially online. :(

    If you're talking about the video I posted, try very hard to not play like that guy. His Dudley play is very bad seeing as how he didn't devote anytime to Dudley at all and was just trying to get the requisite 1000 bp for the C to Shining C trophy.

    Besides, it was the way he made the vid that impressed me - the effort was definatly there in my eyes.

    My advice on the Ranked Match 1 still stands. For Ranked Match 2, obviously don't just throw out the ultra, but you probably know that. Also, it seems that you're overestimating the abilities of Ultra 1. You have to react fairly quickly to use it to punish fireballs and it only has invincibility in the beginning. When you throw your opponent try to be aware of where you are on the screen. There's a part where you throw the Chun player forward and then backward. If you had thrown the player backward first, you would have put them in the corner and put yourself in a much better situation. Don't be afraid to anti-air those floaty Chun jumps with st. forward/crouch fierce/EX JU. Finally, you can fight Chun at midrange since st. roundhouse buffered into mgb or st fierce will either stuff or trade with her pokes. To be honest though, the Chun player didn't seem to be very good.

    was in training session , laughed when I did this combo on Abel:

    J.HP, f+mk, cr.lk, cr.lp, cr.mp, st.hk, etc. if you look closely, all six buttons are linked except after jumpin.

    Useless but just funny to see how much he can link stuff.

    The Akuma match up is something is commonly have issues with if they have solid rushdown. Here is a video of me against Infiltration in a tournament a few days ago.

    Don't fall in love with the Step Straight. This move can get you killed because it is extremely slow and doesn't hit against a lot of low pokes. If Infiltration was playing more ballsy, which is ridiculous given that he wake-up Demon'd you, he could have just focused it and got a guaranteed level 2 FA combo on you. You should be using the stomach blow (fwd. strong/mp) since it has a much improved hitbox in AE. Also, because you're playing AE you should not let him get away with any kind of low air fireball. EX Duck Straight him on reaction. Even if it trades you're hurting him way more than he's hurting you. Don't backdash the Demon Flip oki because he has lots of painful option selects from it. If you can, try to get him out of it with something like a full crouch EX Jet Uppercut. Level 1 FA is REALLY bad for Dudley. It's -3 on hit or block. I don't know if Infiltration knows it, but if you ever do a Level 1 FA and dash forward on him, he can just reversal shoryu you for free. Also, at the end you got him with a combo into jab mgb and just backdashed and let him go. You gotta pay attention to his meter. He had 1 stock, so he had no safe option to do against you. You could have either just blocked a shoryu which is incredibly unsafe for him or kept going with your offense. You can't waste those opportunities.

    For that time that you did reversal the Demon Flip and he went past you, that really sucks. He played you on that one since he knows the ranges.

    Also remember when fighting Akuma, a poorly spaced sweep is a free jab MGB. You have to be on top of your punishes in this matchup, teleports with MGB, full screen demon flips with suitable anti airs, and whiffed far st. RH's with a fat combo. Dudley has to mess up pretty bad for Akuma to get on top of him.
  • DarkyellowDarkyellow Joined: Posts: 1,091
    If Akuma whiffs the far standing roundhouse entirely or the second hit, you can do crouch jab > st. roundhouse xx EX MGB > short ducking straight. After that you can do either roundhouse duck or forward duck and pause briefly, which will set you up for a very meaty crouch short or dartshot respectively. If you combo him again off the meaty he is stunned and has basically lost the round since he will be in the corner or very close to it and you can either do a level 3 FA reset off of crumpling him into meaty dartshot > st. roundhouse xx jab Jet Uppercut > jab MGB to kill him or some other meaty combo if you have more meter. It only takes 1 bar and 2 guesses to kill Akuma if he whiffs the far standing roundhouse.

    Mess up pretty bad? Akuma has the one of the best sweeps/normals in the game cr.hk, leading to demon flip mix ups. Add in some weak wake up options for Dudley and Akuma has himself some Boxer for lunch.

    I really don't think its an amazingly bad match for Dudley. 6/4 or 5.5/4.5. Dudley has to avoid the knock-down and play the ground game intelligently.

    You have good spacing and links, but why no st rh to ex MGB to OMFG damage?!? (you opted to go with ducking upper)

    Seriously, I was SCREAMING for it in that match, you could have outright ENDED it a couple of times! You had great control and excecution, but didnt go for the big damage? (Ducking straight to jetupper/ultra 2/mgb (in corner))

    I'm trying to get used to doing the duck upper - FADC cr. jab, st hk -> whatever combo in real matches.

    Since it was casuals I was just messing around with different ways to maintain pressure since it's so freaking hard for me to get in and stay in against characters with such better footsies than me.
    I figure once I get that combo down I can start using to to reset into more damage via overhead, or getting easy knockdowns with throw. I'd basically be giving up the damage from EX MGB so I can set myself up for more damage with an overhead/throw mixup.

    Also, I kept trying to save ulta so I could use it as an anti-air to juri's dive kick. EiSH likes to space Juri's dive kicks so my ex Jet Upper's would whiff, or trade with my st. mk. Ultra was the only way I could keep him on the ground and stop pressuring me for free and pushing me in the corner.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Don't reset unless you need to. Good opponents aren't going to let you do that unless you figure out a way to consistently stop them from focus backdashing or backdashing. You also will likely get hit out of your overhead due to a crouch tech. The opportunities from resetting in this game are not as important as getting the guaranteed damage in my opinion.
    Ji End!

    Duuuude. You need to level up your fundamentals all around.

    Block more, jump less, never use EX CC or non EX JU in wake up, hitconfirm into combos, learn proper punishes, practice meaty timings.
    fun fact: Dudley considered such moves as cheese grader square and spatula hexagon as his finisher before settling with corkscrew cross
