I'm going to continue asking questions about matchups as there was a lot of good feedback last time
I'm having trouble with
Jean: Basically I tend to misjudge his range. His hits can really go a long way!
Brad: I tend to think his strings are shorter than they really are and attack before it's my turn. I guess I have to do the same thing I did with Kage: Go into command training to see what tools he has.
Pai and Lau: How to deal with their fast combo strings/mixups

Against bigger guys like Jeff and Wolf, its a matter of having the better spacing.
Work on knowing their range compared to yours, and abuse 1P (not 1PK, just 1P) and get ready to break grabs whatever you can

Any other low/high/mid mixups recommended?

okay after a week or two of just playing daily, ranked (hell, i'm STUCK on being Guardian rank, if that matters), player match, room, whatever... i've had some observations (well, at least to me) regarding Shun. but i'm sure these are all common sense so forgive the scrubness :V
-214KK - beginning to see how beautiful this move is. Risk it, its VERY useful, you might lose big drinks, but in the last round it won't matter. but yeah, don't just throw it out of nowhere ofc.
-214P+K - WOW. great float on counter, lots of options, never forget this exists.
-the 9P 'pounce' when opp is lying down is tricky, it can make you switch sides and you end up also in a downed state, but unlike normal, you can be HIT otg, it's basically like another stance. Just be psychic and know when and where to roll out when this happens.
-63214P+G is his best throw, and this is just my observation, most people tend to throw escape neutral and forward throws
from Oushin (front) - KP2KK
43+PK P (VERY dirty)

^very different. I basically had to relearn shun in FS
edit- i may be exaggerating, but yeah, he's somewhat different, in a sense that his commands have been switched around a lot... but the fundamentals (i.e. VF2 moves) are in-tact

VF5 was a bit of an easier time. You had a much easier command listing to follow imo, but yeah coming into FS I had to take some Dojo time.

I've been watching the EVO matches and it's been very refreshing. Watching Itabasi's style is very different from watching Fuudo's. When I watch Fuudo I think "WOW, there's no way I'd be able to pull that off". Not that I think that I can do what Itabasi does, but I think he has a more straightforward approach. It has made me want to use 46PPP and 66K more for example. Kissa's Crazydrunk's, LA Akira's and Sam the seed's matches were cool too.

Don't forget 6p, p (or 6p drink or 6p grab or drink cancel to something or or or). It's a great little setup.
