Ok here’s a brief outline of the fight!
The match concerned is K-Cammy vs A-Rock. It begins at 00:30.
The first mistake is made at 00:31. Here, Cammy does a Spiral Arrow to begin the match. The risk/reward is not in your favour. Many people jump vertically to begin matches because that’s a safe thing to do. Then if you foolishly did a spiral arrow, they will combo you.
For the next 5 seconds, this is standard Cammy play (i.e. whore st HK). Then at 00:37 Cammy does cr MK -> spiral arrow. This is acceptable because a) Rock has no anti-air move since he is not charged, and b) most people won’t roll through the spiral arrow the first time.
However, a few seconds later Cammy does another two cr MK -> spiral arrow. This cannot be recommended! Horrible of the century. She does do the just defend though (you should always do this after a blocked spiral arrow because it’s riskless).
Around 00:49 Cammy throws Rock with punch throw. We prefer to throw with kick because then we can maintain the momentum and do huge damage to Rock, not to throw with punch and then be far away after he safe falls.
After Cammy gets raged, Cammy does a common K groove mistake: jumping all the time when raged. Never do this. Instead, make a huge cardboard sign saying “I am really predictable, please anti-air CC me” and place it in front of you instead
At 00:58 Cammy whiffs a standing roundhouse. We don’t recommend doing this against good players. (Against crappy players they try to retaliate but they choose the wrong move, and their sprite moves forward and gets counter hit by the st HK and bam! you cancel into super for huge damage)
Cammy then gets caught by a random CC activation. Maybe not so random but who knows what these crazy A groove players think?! I can’t say it was a huge mistake because I would have done that too. However Cammy has no excuse at 01:05 for mis-timing the wake-up. Bad Cammy.
Then at 01:12 we see Cammy freak out and do HK cannon spike for no reason at all! Even though Cammy managed to get Rock with a lucky cannon spike afterwards, we don’t recommend this. Then Cammy messes up an attempted cr MK -> spiral arrow to punish the Rock elbow.
Later Cammy gets a cr MK countered by Rock’s crack counter. This was a pretty dumb on Rock’s part though, but maybe the Cammy was too freaked out and just spazzed on random buttons and got predictable.
So: to recap. Lessons to learn here:
- Don’t randomly do spiral arrow.
- Don’t mess up your combos.
- Don’t randomly do HK cannon spikes.
- Don’t mess up your wake-up cannon spike/supers.
- Don’t freak out.
- Don’t whiff pokes.
- Don’t jump all day when raged.
- Do throw with kick throw, not punch throw.
- Do press HP a lot.
