I’ll be honest, I can’t cr. lk X 2 > Lvl 2 Shoryureppa for crap, even though I know its essential to Ken, Akuma and Ryu (Shinhadouken). Akuma especially since I’m trying to pick him up in C-Groove. It takes a bit of practice and a stick helps. Unless you practice constantly, you won’t keep it down. There was one week where I constantly practiced that to death and I kept it for that one week while practicing and lost it the next 2 weeks because I was using scrub-friendly A-Groove. :mad:
But seriously,… where were the wakeup moves??? Was he parrying them the first set of matches and that’s why you guys weren’t doing them, or were you guys messing up the timing for the wakeup JD’s??? He was meaty-attacking you guys to death.
Other than Raiden and Gief,… I find a good amount of success with Akuma’s dive kick with the right distance (try not to execute it right above the opponent, since your recovery time will be increased). And one more thing, I noticed your air fireballs were either poorly timed or wrongly distanced. I don’t find near as much success with an Air Fireball unless I am doing it Tiger Knee style to crossup on lying opponents. I’d avoid jumping in with it blankly and start using the dive kick instead for your purposes.
