Adon Strategy and Match-up Thread

It was always noted that you could not safe jump shotto characters and Adon has nothing in his arsenal to make him an exception. The best thing you could do is what is mentioned above, to bait the SRK with something like a jump over to HK AJK. But you can safe jump a character with an SRK that’s 3 frames.

Why does Adon’s normals make counter poking so easy? I hit c.fp~super on monday like 5 times lol

mm… a noob question but, how do you deal with El Fuerte Tortillas on wake ups??

if i try to dash forward, i get caught. Neutral jump maybe? you can eat a Tostada Press if you guess wrong though…

i hate El Fuerte :confused:

BTW, he can Guacamole Adons Jaguar Kicks :frowning:

fucking hating the guile match up right now. so retarded that you can’t even jump over a fucking sonic boom without risking like 3 or 4 different damaging attacks.

fucking hate all the guile buffs in super.

well spaced IAJK (HK version) are your friends here! (although he is still annoying as hell).

… no advices against El Fuerte Tortillas/Tostadas wake up mix up?

that would be cool if i could do those consistantly, but thats not the case. Also, fuck balrog. impossible to get in on.


Gamerbee vs Guile - HD PVR ?? - 619??

Gamerbee vs Balrog (yea I know it’s a bit old, but it’s still pretty relevant)

I see, I dont have the issue as much in ranked as I do against my friends. We are all pretty much noobs still at the moment. I have yet to get past 2000pp but I am using the excuse that ive only played on stick for about 9 days :smiley:
ill see if I can bait them more and go from there, thanks for the advice :smiley:

ELF: I don’t know the names of ELF’s retarded moves so bare with me. On wake up, ELF can slide, belly slam or spin grab you.

Wake up LK RJ will let you escape the belly slam and beat the slide but lose to the spin grab.

Neutral jump will let you escape the spin grab but it will lose to belly slam and slide and make sure you hit grab after you land cause most ELF will try to throw you after the spin grab misses.

That’s about the best I can come up with after 40+ games with this one ELF. You just have to guess to a degree, that’s how that ELF is built.

One more thing, don’t bother using focus on wake up, Adon’s FA cannot hit ELF’s slide.

so it really is a 50/50 mix up…

now i hate playing against El Fuerte even more!!

thanks anyways :wink:

Is the opening post going to be updated anytime soon, since I think Adon match ups have been talked about :slight_smile:

When you crumple someone close st.Fierce whiffs on certain characters, so I like to use close st.forward on these characters instead. A few off the top of my head are Rose, Chun, and Dan. If I’m thinking right, close st.forward is his strongest normal that can cancel-able aside from the fierce.

You can also use it as a frame trap, which is always useful.

yes sir. i’ll get on it asap

does ANYONE have any tips for getting trapped in the corner by fucking Balrog? I swear to all things jaguar, I can NOT fucking escape the corner in a balrog match. As SOON any Balrog player sees me go for anything, JUMP BACK HIGH PUNCH. So retarded.

Technically doesn’t whiff on Chun, you just have to do it super early after the crumple.

Balrog in general is a brain dead retarded ass easy buttons character. Sorry but that’s not about to change. Just don’t get cornered (lol good luck).

You can use,JT(HK). You cancel the with the JT(HK).

Actually any character it would normally whiff on, you just walk up and do it. It works on everyone. So, you will basically get the crumple and then walk forward for a split second and hit st. hp. You can also hit st. hp right after you release the fa like someone below said.

In this situation I use fr. st. lk xx hk jk to push him away kind of like sagat would use his st. lk xx tiger knee/tiger shot to get out of the corner in vanilla.

Greg where you been man? :smiley:

Playing a lot of bb:cs and learning dudley. Still maining Adon and keeping him on point, though. Taking him to a tournament today, so wish me luck!

Bait the jump back HP with a LK Tooth. As soon as he jumps, you can prolly LK Jagga Kick…or at least use the space. OR: You> LK Tooth / Rog> J back Hp / You> HK Tooth.

Dunno if this was posted already but, against Viper, safe jump -> OS HK rj beats Ex burn kick and EX seismo feint(she uses it for the invincibility frames and usually throws you after it).
