Hi guys, new to the forums. i’ve been a Bison purist since the game launched, I recently started playing a lot more, and my highest rank has been supergold (gold right now tho, cuz i tried ed )
Anyway, here’s a problem I’ve been experiencing pretty often. Since Bison has no overhead or command throw, I tend to have offensive trouble vs players that just hold block and look for throw techs, regardless of matchup, although DP’s make it worse.
My tactics to try and beat it so far have been, Tick throws, delaying inputs, varying blockstrings, trying to buildup grey health etc.
But I’ve had the most success by far, just backing off of offense altogether and letting Bison smile at them from full screen…basically forcing the game back to neutral, but generally losing any pressure advantage. It works pretty well, but seems wrong considering how offense heavy this game is. I don’t necessarily mind playing defensively myself, but seems like i’m letting the opponent dictate the match that way.
So, how do you get in vs really defensive players with bison?
