Akuma Troubles While Online

I’ve been main’ing as Akuma for a long time now. I know how to do some pretty good combos and I’m working on getting my links down better, but my problem is I can only do these techniques in the training room.

When I play online it seems that my opponent knows exactly what I’m gonna do next. I can’t seem to setup combos or even do a decent amount of damage without my opponent rushing me down or reading my ever move.

Grant you, I am G-2 tiered in champion mode, but I need to find a way to change up my tactics for the better.

Is there any suggestions for some good Akuma strats so I can rush down the opponent or read THEIR moves better?

Also, as a side note I hate Ryu, he’s so cheap against me lol
