I alt Gief/Hugo. I know it's not a very synergetic team but it's fun to me. I planned to pick them up before release so I'm not just a bandwagoner...
Now normally I can just counterpick and pick Vega to deal with Jack fairly easily. But i don't want to have to resort to counterpicking.
The problem is that Gief and Hugo dont really have any way to get in. They dont have any way to get past seismo/DP zoning and Jack doesnt have to come in at all. He can sit there full screen and chip for free. Unlike someone like Dhalsim i cant use launcher to get past his full screen poke. Unlike Raven I cant really walk forward because seismo hits twice and pushes me back further than i can walk. Dashing doesnt work because it's too slow on both Gief and Hugo. Monster Lariat armor and Running Bear Grab armor get beat by 2nd hit seismo. EX green hand isnt hit invincible so I end up getting hit outta that. Jumping over is extremely risky but the only way in.... which Jack players usually sit there and look for. You have to jump way early because seismo will hit you outta your jumping frames and 1 wrong read and you've eaten a DP into seismo and you're all the way back at full screen..... Sooo... yeah I'm stumped. Normally I can figure out something like this but i got nothing this time. Cant run, cant walk, cant dash, cant armor, cant jump and cant special through. So.... other than Jack playing like a retard or counterpicking, how do I get in?
Edit: I have to admit that even SF4 Sagat and Dhalsim were not this hard to get in on. But I had a hit invincible EX Green Hand to help out with that.
