I realise this title sounds newb as hell and i thought i could deal with focas attacks fairly well, but i was just absolutely destroyed by a pro player it was relatively eaven (as he wasn’t using his main characters) up till the point he started really useing focas attacks a lot, his spaceing is insanely good, i mean i cant really flash kick him if i hit him with a cmk or basicly any poke he would just get me with the fa basicly, jump in he takes a hit with fa i try hit him i get crumpled, maby get a lucky throw or tech but safest option seems to be take the block string. he would be opening almost any attack string or my wakeup with fa dash foward.
I tryed light flashkick he would be spaced just right and backdash on reaction ex same story, i had some success with faing at the same time as him so i’d take a hit and get a crumple on him, really tho there must be some kind of better option to deal with this kind of thing that i’m just not seeing. almost evey match i’d end up in the corner and eat some rediculas combo off a fa, which is even worce coz he controls the spaceing entirely at that point and i can’t boom coz i’ll get jump in punished.
Any help on how to deal with this kind of thing would be great, if i shouldn’t have made a new thread about this i appologise in advance it just didn’t seem like a matchups thread sort of thig it’s more a universal problem with my gameplan.
