Hey, I was looking for the
There is no Shortcut to Perfection! Dudley Indepth Matchup Discussion DAY 7: ChunLi
Thread but can’t seem to find it, or it was never created.
I have a major issue with this matchup for a couple of reasons and was wondering if anyone could shed some light.
First here are the flaws in this matchup.
Her backdash. Its too good.
f.MK os light DP, or HP DP does not work and wiffs.
Reading a backdash and activating Ultra 1 Does not work as well. I have successfully read a backdash, U1 before her wakeup, and she still manages to block after the backdash which is really strange.
Another thing that is bad about this matchup, is the fact that she controls the air.
Everyone of her air moves beats your airmoves.
She also controls the ground game with her footsies, and quite dominantly i might add.
The only thing that seems to work for me on ground game vs her is s.HK buffered with ex MGB to try to counter hit her pokes. But you can only play that game for so long before getting hit 4-5 times before giving up on that option.
Um once you get the knockdown in the corner theres a good chances shes gona ex spin bird kick.
So you try to bait it out with nuetral jump HK? Great, the problem with that good chunlis will wait for you to land and ex birdkicks reseting the position. And if they dont see a nuetral jump they will ex birdkick on reaction of overhead or c.lk.
So… if she controls the air, the ground, and your 50\50 mixup options are useless midscreen after a knockdown due to backdashes, what would be a good strategy to even consider in the matchup? any help would do! thanks
