    Hello, this is my first posting in this thread; I hope my advice (whether reposted or not) will help you in your challenging (bad) matchups!

    PROTIP #1: Learn to walk-up and block--It took me awhile to get this into my head, but your opponent will start doing crazy things when you aren't jumping as much anymore. This is great in forcing a misread from them and handing you that knockdown that will change the match.

    PROTIP #2: Now you've mastered the walk-up and block, one of blanka's secret tools to winning. The next secret tool is his jump-in. Yeah that sounds really obvious and key to winning matches. However, when you get those few jump-ins from a good read on the opponent (after walk-blocking), COMMIT and FOLLOWTHROUGH! There are many times when I messed up a combo attempt when I thought my jump-in would eat a reversal/AA.

    PROTIP #3: So now you can beast with combos, and getting into the opponents face. What else can you do just being outside your opponent's sweep range? I like to do c.MK whiff and scare them from throwing out a footsie; but at this point they are conditioned to think you will do a c.RH to sweep/nasty jump-in combo attempt/hop shenanigans. This is a variation of #1... walk-up and bite!! Yes you've seen Komoda and Co. do this one before, but you need to really mess with your opponents head with this one! He has such a huge grab range, you won't believe you'll get away with this one once you master it! Just walk forward a little bit and tap HP, and blanka will help himself to some tasty damage! you might get a standing fierce but thats okay too; it definitely adds to blanka's psych out meter.
    Seeing you in action is a joke!

    <cammytier> Your missing teeth shall remind you of my victory!

    Does anyone know if Blanka's short kick up-close knee is considered a grounded move or off the ground? I'm trying to confirm some new stuff but I need a answer to this.

    Both Short and Forward versions are grounded.
    I keep reading stuff about ST revival, about bringing this game back to life...
    Its nice to see big tourneys happening and old top players giving this game a chance again...
    But what we really need is new players... And having a strong scene obviously helps...
    But in my opinion what will really bring new players to our community is good tutorials/character guides so they can learn easily and have something to start... So, actually good players, stop being selfish and write stuff about the chars you know! The wiki is lacking so much basic content... Stop being lazy and do something about it.

    How can I confirm this? I need visual proof.

    Two ways to confirm:
    1- Do it as a meaty against someone and with the other character try to time a reversal throw (blanka will be thrown) or rog's reversal super (you'll notice that blanka will eat all hits without being put into a juggle state, which is what would happen if blanka were in the air).
    2- Throwableboxes are white -> means that blanka is in the ground.

    I'm curious what the idea was?

    Instead of me telling you, I will show you soon.

    Check back on this thread. I have something special in the works. :-)
