I haven’t found any specific Sagat thread, so I’m opening a new one.
Which is the best strategy against Sagat?
It’s a really difficult match, also with decent Sagat player, 'cause of the huge damage he does and the great stamina he got. I’m also referring to Sagat that know:
- How to punish random teleports
- does fireball war at maximum distance
- how to combo to ultra (especially with f+hk)
- use focus at close distance
- use safe tiger knee
Sagat may have a lot of different strategy, but I find a lot of trouble against turtling ones that do fireball war.
I know the way to avoid his shots (tower,slide,jump,fire,ex fire) but if he isn’t cornered I generally cannot hit him with s.hp because of distance.
the only thing I know is to use a lot of ex fire.
