Obviously Akuma has a great mix up game which almost every Akuma tries to exploit mindlessly, but his footsie game is often overlooked.
With the nerf on his S.RH imo his footsie game has been shut down quite a bit, It moved you foward, was 0 on block so you could either try to get a counter hit, jump away, etc. Now if you do this on gief which used to work perfectly, you get SPD’d.
Anyway, His cr.mk doesnt seem to be as good as ryus (could be wrong) but it is still a fairly good poke but the main things I wanted to get opinion about are :
When do you do this? Where do you do it, which one do you do.
I think I have a habit of doing these to much cause I have this wierd assumption in my head that they are safe. Il use a HP on a jump in to cover me and they walk forward and sweep me, Il use one jumping back and they jump over it and land at the same time as me, maybe Im just using it wrong, any tips?
Second of all is Anti Airing.
I think his Cr.HP is trash lol, maybe im timing it wrong, but it whiffs a lot, sometimes trades and just has slow start up, I try to stick to SRKs but is it just me or does his SRKs suck. When I do a HP SRK which i would assume have the most priority of the three, it trades A LOT or sometimes itl hit once and do like 30 damage…
Thanks a lot guys.
