I’m going to be participating in a team tourney league. It’ll be 4 tournaments, and for the sign-ups, I believe, you are to list 2 characters that will be your only choices for throughout each event. Now I currently main Barlog so I’m obviously going to use him to the limit, but since I have that extra character choice I feel I should use it.
What’s a good character to alt for a tourney league like this, considering matchups and preference (I’ll go into detail). I was thinking Akuma or Cammy for the reason that Akuma beats most of Rog’s bad matchups, and Cammy because she takes care of my personal worse matchups (Seth and Abel).
The other characters I’m considering are ones I’ve already dabbled with since I’ve played SSFIV, or good zoning characters for if I run into someone who completely shuts down my offense. . Akuma is one, I know standard combos, mixups, and all the like. I’d say I’m at the advanced level of Akuma’s basics if that makes any sense, and he’s zoning is decent. Deejay I’ve nearly gotten to B rank, I know his mixups and combos fairly decently. Fei Long is a character I put a lot of time into, I can pull of some crispy links and I’d say I was pretty average, but he’s a character that if I don’t indulge all of my time into him, I lose all of my skill. Sagat is a great zoner, and he’s been keeping a low profile since his nerf after Vanilla so I’d like him. I used to main him and do pretty well. The last consideration is Cody. He’s got a ton of tools, lots of easy to pull off combos, mixups, and everything. I consider him a slightly watered down Ryu.
But I’m open to pretty much everyone else. Only if it’s realistic though.
Thanks if anyone actually read all of that.
