Hi there guys,
*(Personal info, Question below)
Pretty new to street fighter, played 5 off and on at a friend’s house over the last few months and decided to commit and really get into fighting games.
Anyways, pick up Ibuki because one of the few characters that clicked with me.
I can’t do any of these crazy bomb combos or long combos in general (brain and fingers still getting used to the muscle memory), sometimes even mess up target combo into Raida. I know, I’m a Super bronze scrub, but training mode is slowly ironing the kinks.
I am a bit of a numbers nerd, so I love frame data and knowing what is punishable and what is safe to throughout.
After learning to deal with the crazy DP characters that breed in Bronze low leagues (Ryu, Ken, etc) and make my way to Sliver I’m starting to run into characters where it’s not super clear on what I can punish (Vega, Laura, etc).
What should I be trying to punish on Boxer?
I figured out the overhead is unsafe (unless my opp did something wrong) I normally can get a Target Combo + Rida off for each one I manage to react to and block.
What about the dash punch? Is that safe on block or can I make the pay for throwing it out without thought?
If anyone has a resource that list that describes what as Ibuki you should be trying to punish on which characters (Or punishes for characters in general) would be very appreciated.
I still can’t do these touch of death combos as Ibuki so knowing this information is really helpful to me in games as I’m still finding it hard to apply constant pressure and often find myself winning games by taking advantage of my opp’s mistakes.
(I understand this won’t be the case I go higher up in the leagues and I will have to learn to open up people and force to make mistakes, but one step at a time lol)
