So yesterday I was down at the arcade, playing my scrub K-cammy/blanka/sagat team, beating down on scrubs, getting mistaken for Bas, losing to some guy who did roll->super with sagat… all the normal things.
But then I receive beatings from A-Vega. And I’m like… ok Cammy is ok against Vega and Sagat might be too slow, but, wtf? Blanka? How on earth does Blanka lose to Vega?
Then I realised there were three things the vega did:
- superior poking
- cornering me and then using jump HP/HK
- RCed rolling rolls
So the first one I can deal with because I know I’ll get better at it with practice. But what does a non-raged Blanka do against the second thing? The two anti-airs I’m comfortable with don’t work so well - electrcitiy gets hit clean, and straigh up FP should work in theory, but I didn’t get it much at all because Vega has some air throw thing going on.
Say that you’re playing Blanka and getting rushed down by Vega, instead of the other way around. What does one do to get out of this undesirable situation?
I don’t want to rely on just Cammy as a Vega-killer. Although my Cammy got beaten too by Vega. That made me seriously consider never playing any fighting game again.
