I’ve been going through the motions, learning each character to see how they all handle, gradullay grinding my way to the C to Shining C achievement as a checkpoint. I have slowly learned interesting strategies and methods of doing moves. I’m happy to say I’ve gotten the following to C rank with few problems:
El Fuerte (hee current fave)
Hakan (also great fun)
I am now on Gief and doing BADLY but not in a “stupid mistake” sort of way. I’m still happy with my few wins and losses, and barring one lag-victory I want to undo, not having much trouble-
EXCEPT I am nearly helpless as a defensive character like Gief. I struggle to get a life lead, and when I do, my opponents pick me apart before I can get anything going. Every reliable method I’ve learned has fallen apart in numerous matches, and I tend to jump the gun (I admit I went for too many grapples out of frustration.) How do I chip away at defensive characters with a defensive character? And can anyone suggest good players to try and C rank next? I admit I tend to go for the more unusual characters as a challenge.
