Ryu's Gameplan

Hi SRK i'm working on a Character's Guide and have worked a lot on it, but have failed in writing a exaustive section about Ryu's general gameplan, I know he is good at defense and punishing and generaly balance to adjust to many match-ups but i need more info on this area. Thanks

    In general, Ryu suffers from a lack of tools that let you take the initiative which forces him to be very reactive to what your opponent is doing. Anything Ryu can do, almost anyone else can do better (or make up for a lack of tool with another tool)

    The only real way to play Ryu is focus on being as "solid" as possible. This means not rushing in a madman, nor does it mean being a turtle. Fundamentally, it means taking what your opponent gives you without over-extending yourself (or at the bare minimum taking risks that are in your favor)

    You may want to give further explanation on what you are looking for.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm looking for what the player must tend to do during the match with the character, for instance Zangief gameplan is to get as fast as possible inte the opponent to mix him up with headbuts and command grabs, Chun-Li can play from the mid-range with her normals, while M. Bison's Gameplan is to go for heavy pressure to force to opponent to make mistakes like attacking in disadvantage, or Guile that can aim to play the zoning and get off me game, in that sense i would like to known what, as a player, I must aim to do with Ryu, of course all is relative to match ups but there is always a general strategy.

    Ryu has no "gameplan" as his tools are not strong enough to enforce one. Get used to playing the counter puncher role.

    Thanks, I belive that Ryu's gameplan is that precisely, to wait and counter the opponent strategy.
