to seerd: rc electricity is practically free imo. without a grab super, it’s really tough. i’m not saying sagat can’t win, i just think it’s pretty difficult for sagat to punish when used properly. and i’m not saying blanka players will do it on reaction to a sagat attack all the time, but it does happen. and worse yet, blanka players around here tend to leave holes in their attacks specifically to set up a rc elec. bottom line, it works. maybe not always, but enough.
maybe there are some players here who use both characters (rare as that may be) who can give deeper insight to the match up. i think a good question to pose is which character they use as a r2. it says a lot about which character they feel is most effective. btw, i play sagat as my r2 but i still feel blanka beats him. contradiction to the max. :lol:
