    You're triggering me Pookie, confirm CH lp > mp into HP.Para, don't do CH lp > cr.mp > St.lk, you're just passing up a meterless knockdown and good damage

    Wait so who do you fucking main now?

    Thinking about making a change maybe. Having no fun in ranked with Juri, I can beat a Super Diamond and then lose to a very buttons-y plat Bison. It's very frustrating being able to get wins for free with my Balrog pressing and doing whatever I want but I can't beat people consistently with my fucking main.

    I play Juri, Kolin, Ken, Balrog, Chun, Menat and Alex. I just rotate. I don't train any of em but I play Juri the most so...that's my main.

    So wait... is Juri actually weak to buttonsy people and general unga?
    I've noticed that I tend to have worst matchups against people doing weird shit (you know the ones that make you think "did I really lose to this shit?") than against people that seem to have a gameplan.
    So far I've attribuited this entirely on my lack of reflexes and the thing that for some reason I can't get good spacing right on her (I mean when I play with Ibuki I hit crouching strong OS all day and with Juri I'm still not getting any similar thing out despite trying constantly)

    Between this, Marvel, and that new SFV stage I think September has been the best month of gaming for me.

    YOOOOOOO. I'm practicing SFV and MvCI for Canada Cup at the moment, but I'm gonna go in on this and Super Mario Odyssey (comes out Canada Cup weekend) the moment it's over.

    I got the LE version so I also got Shuichi's hat and Kaede's backpack. I think I also got some LE soundtrack, pretty happy.
    Stay golden, my friend!

    No I'm just bad, or not good enough to make Juri work consistently.

    I dislike blaming my character for my shortcomings, I have tons of things I could improve and Juri getting buffed wouldn't make me any better of a player. I just didn't adapt to the Bison I guess.

    im happy with my results
    ive only been playing kolin for less than a month
    to take a couple rounds off of a master rashid with just that is good for me
    if i can atleast take rounds then im not far from taking matches
    just gonna keep practicing

    Get yourself some meaties the amount of times he St.lk'd you on wakeup makes me sad.

    I need some too tbh, oh and you know if you do midscreen EX.Para? I'd probably do delayed LK.Vanity into edge, gives you much better oki and better corner carry. Helps against someone like Rashid where you need to keep the pace

    This is going to sound extremely off topic (because, I do have a bad tendency of either whining a little too much about possible SFV changes or being thirsty over female characters).


    If there were a brand new fighting game IP to come out right now, how many characters would some of you recommend?
    Twenty-something? Thirty-something? Or, would it depend?

    Like, roster size?

    16 if the budget for it is decent.

    around the 20s. Low-mid 10s. I don't think a fighter needs anymore then 35 at most though.

    Looked into any EX.Para xx Hail set-ups? They look pretty decent. Hard to cover both rises consistently though.

    I'm gonna work on my Kolin for a while and put together some strong oki, I need mix-ups from parries as well really badly.

    @Beekmeer Gonna take the broken lobby as a good sign to stop lol GGs! If your Laura was rusty it shows just how good that character is since you managed to take some games off me. It also shows how weak I am to command grabs :D

    GGs @Jerom

    I think the lobby must have been trying to save me from getting mauled any more. That was almost the first time in a month I've used Laura, and I was screwing up a ton of stuff. It's crazy that I still did better with her than I did with Kolin. I think Abigail and Ed are my two worst match ups right now. I always seem to make the wrong reads against both of them.

    Yeah, I need to make sure I don't completely forget how to play her while trying to get good with Kolin. I'd really like to get to the point where I can be competent with more than one character, but right now it still messes with my head when I switch. A few times during our sets I'd end a combo by whiffing HP Bolt cause I'm so used to doing HP Parabellum now.

    Dont worry. After I switched from Guile to Abby for a bit i was trying to do crouching light into flashkick

    Let's face it, that theme fits Juri MUCH better.

    Personality wise, it would fit Juri more I agree.

    But in terms of looks and especially because of Laura's hairstyle, I think it would fit Laura pretty good as well.

    Why not for both? :bee:
