I just have to say that this thread has changed my game tremendously! Before reading through this thread, I had a ton of problem match ups. The main thing this thread has taught me is to abuse the hell out of j. jab, which is a move that I had never used prior to this. Now that I know how effective that one move is, life has become so much easier.
With j. jab, I no longer have anywhere near as much trouble against Blanka, Honda, Claw and Dic. Blanka balls? J. jab stops it clean. Honda headbutt or butt smash? J. jab stops it clean. Claw wall dive? J. jab. Hell this beautiful move stops many supers clean outright. Dictator, Boxer and Honda's supers? No longer much of an issue if you know they might be happening. J. jab beats them all. I still need to test if it beats Blanka's and Chun's supers.
Unfortunately, j. jab does nothing against throw loops, which are still giving me trouble. Trying to reversal throw against Ken and Boxer's throw loops seems useless, as with my experience those two bastards ALWAYS get their throws. Do mash throws have more priority or range than toss throws or something? I'm having the same luck trying to reversal upkick out of them. Maybe its lag?

I've got a question for you deejay mains.
I'm a blanka main, and second gief.
My question, is if I'm a tournament and I face a Deejay player, and lose the first game, should I counter pick gief? I usually do this for rog players, since gief handles rog waaaaaay better than blanka. but deejay is an equally bad matchup.
Which character do you guys find harder to deal with? blanka or gief?
and given this, what tactics do you find yourself losing to? I know most of it is just tick grabs, but are there particular things that you guys find really difficult?

Blanka and Gief are some of DJ's easiest matchups. He just has to keep away all match. He sucks against them close up, though.

Pick Blanka, Gief is easier to deal with. If Blanka manages to pressure the DJ player so that he makes mistakes then I'd say the match is in Blankas favor. Good DJ players just don't panic very often.

Blanka is actually almost a bad matchup for Dee Jay, in my opinion. Slide under max outs, crazy j.short, all kinds of mixup options...I find him much harder to deal with.

It's fun until he sweeps you and then starts his crossup madness.

don't let him get so close where cr.rh might trade with your pokes
oh and khiem, deejays forward and roundhouse sobats go over lows now too. feel that dizzy/dmg.

While this is true, it's extremely difficult to time.

Been having some trouble with Vega lately. Specially when he gets you into the corner and crouch pokes then slides then repeats. Tried to use the rising kick to escape but didn't work. Best solution I came up with is doing his light dread kick which trades with his slide. Otherwise I get trapped. Any tips?

Also as a sidenote, this was probably one of the most fun matches I had at evo. Just want to say really gg again to Zass.

Just saw this now -- thanks! That was a great match .. one of those matches where we both had several missed chances to have won "for free"
I hope we can play again in person sometime! Thanks again for a very fun tournament match.
We should have this format every year at evo.

No you can't reversal out of a well timed crossup Walldive.

Doesn't DJ c. forward beat 99% of Claw's moves?
BruceLB, post: 2501644 wrote:
Um, what? Reversal short upkicks will cleanly beat wall dive crossup in the corner and will make walldive whiff anywhere else.

@Jehoedi: Watch Sirlin VS Afrolegends @Evo07 (I think), Sirlin manages to hit DJs cr.forward in the recovery time with his slide.
