For those of u who havent read my thread in the SFAC XBL forum then keep in mind i got this game 2 days ago, played about 100 matches on xbl, switched my controls to y=fierce p and b=fierce k, and use the joystick not d-pad.
I mostly use ce sagat simply cuz he's my best guy n i love how u can match ur opponents 3-4 hit combos with a single fierce uppercut. I'm pretty good at turtling and i'd say my best asset is my ability to play mind games by mixing tiger shots for example when the opponent is far away generally i'll throw 2 cr slow shots n then a fast st shot which usually hits there feet as they try to jump over it n then when they figure this out after my first slow cr shot i immediately throw a fast st shot which also works. I also have a habit of alternating fierce st and cr shots which does hella block damage and at mid-close range i walk back and fourth rapidly so when i move back this forces the opponent to jump in cuz theyr thinking that since i'm pressing the back button i won't b fast enough to press
and that works about 75% of the time.
My major weakspot i'd say is knowing which combos to use and when so any help on combo strats with ce sagat would help alot. What is the most damaging combo with sagat? cuz sagat quickly dizzies the opponent and when i'm in range to do a combo i always do j.weak k+cr.weak k+st. fierce uppercut but when the opponent isn't dizzyed the only combo i can pull off is st.weak p+fierce uppercut. The only practical use i see for tiger knee is for quickly getting close to my opponent and on youtube i've seen sagat users chain j.weak k+cr weak k+fierce tiger knee into a 4 hit combo and i've been practicing this for about 30 mins and can only get the last 3 hits to combo even when i do the j.weak kick very late and i can only do it in the corner so what am i doing wrong?
I noticed that in fighting games in general especially AE i have a foresight where i can predict almost any attack and see it before it comes yet in this game most of the time i can't do anything about it as in react to it cuz half the time i throw an uppercut a tiger shot comes out and visa versa so why is it so hard for me to do moves at will? am i inputting the wrong motions or is it the games slowass framerate?
is ce the only version of sagat i should use?
I would appreciate any general start help and/or links to gameplay videos of ce sagat. Also can i get some character specific matchup help? I completely own st balrog and my worst matchup is ce guile thats all i know so far.
