Hey guys. I often have the occasional issue of being an offensive powerhouse (with limited success) and pick characters like evil ryu, seth, and akuma to try and dish out a lot of damage in a short time since I know I have practically no health at all once my opponent starts hitting me back. That said, when I find my offense neutralized by an opponent and they start attacking me back I’m not realy prepared defensively. I find it hard to block effectively or have a defensive mindset when I’m using offensive characters that can’t really take a punch.
So basically, I think having evil ryu as my main is a bad idea since once I get above 1000pp I get beatdown. What I’m wondering is who is a good character to use that isn’t ryu or Ken but is strong defensively and not as offensively minded. If I have a defensive character, I’ll be more prone to not be attacking all the time. I’ve read balrog is good since you charge back and are defending by default all the time but I also read Cody is good since he doesn’t shine in offense and doesn’t have wake up shoryukens but at the same time has easy bnbs. I also would like easy bnb combos since my timing isn’t that good. So if anyone can help me here that would be great. I want to become more defensively sound while still being able to have no super tight links for bnbs…are there even characters like that in this game? Any help is appreciated! Cheers!
