Does anybody use Guile as a main or secondary to Abel?
Did you find getting a handle on Abel was/is harder?
I main Guile, have been playing him since release (dabbled with Ryu and Gouken)and playing him exclusively the last 3 months.
I decided to go with Abel as a secondary because he’s not a shoto and he’s not a charge charater. His moveset, playstyle, character design and ultra (something Guile can’t connect after juggle) are all sick!
But I’m having the hardest time getting out of pressure situations.
If someone pressures me, I dont’ know what to do or how to counter or take advantege of an opening. When I see the openings, I don’t know what to apply to that situation. I’ve been reading all the sticky threads and great info, but can’t seem to really apply any of it yet.
If I get caught in the corner, I can’t get out.
Jump ins constantly beat me and the only weapon I have is c.mk, anything else? Based on the threads, c.hp isn’t so useful (Guile’s c.hp is insanely good!).
I’m lacking experience with Abel, I know that; what advice can the more experienced Abel players give? I know about the stickies and have read almost the entire ‘moveset and attributes’ thread, and reading the match up thread.
I know there’s no shortcuts, but say, in your playstyle - what goals do you set for yourselves in a match, or in training mode? What’s your mindset? What are you trying to achieve?
I try to apply how I learned Guile to Abel but I find it to be comparing apples to oranges. Most of my technique with Guile involves pre-charging, something that I can’t apply to Abel.
f+mk, how long did it take you to get it down solid? (meaning you can actually combo after it)
Is c.lp to f+mk a 1 link combo?
I know that f+mk to anything else is a 1 link combo.
And his TT, why does Abel have to be right next to his opponent to get the grab?That’s ridiculous. The grab animation clearly shows him being able to grab the other guy with his hand, yet a character like Gief will be able to grab him out of c.hk at its max distance.
How are ways that you set up his TT?
I hope not to get flamed and instead you guys extend a helping hand. Thanks and much appreciated.
