Man! I’ve been playing SFIV for a while now (over 6000+ matches both games)… I used to know how to deal with Chun Li in Vanilla. However, I’m pretty sure I haven’t beaten one above-average Chun in SSFIV Onilne anymore. After all the buffs she got I can’t seem to get in, stay in and even block or tech against her. I’m TOTALLY FREE against Chun Li.
I main Sakura and Rose. But this goes for any character I play… (Duds, Abel, Rufus, Guy and Makoto) the only way I can get even close to having a shot vs Chun is if I pick Ryu and play it very careful and such. This is sending me into new levels of frustration, looks like the Chun Li vs. ME match-up is a 9.5-0.5. I never feared any char in vanilla, not even Sagat, but now I’m so frustrated with that match-up that I’m throwing away whole matches when facing Chun’s online.
I’m here, at the all mighty Saikyo Dojo (I love Dan) feeling like the crappiest scrub in the world. My good friends of F, D, DF + P dot com, what should I do? What’s the best way to learn this match-up, deal with those annoying pokes, zoning, footsies and that annoying throw range of 1.0 that this woman has?
I’m at a loss… 0_0
PS: The Irony is that I love Shizza! <3
