Hey guys, yes, you read right- Dhalsim Vs Vega lol.
You might think this fight relatively straight forward (what with most players agreeing on Vega being one of the weaker characters not having one up on anyone) but I for one am struggling against a few of his moves as sim. One move in particular is his wall jump into suplex grapple thing lol. When he EXs it, dhalsim gets flipped and the suplex just comes out- unavoidable. Is the initial EX that flips sim into the air a block high?? Also, the suplex itself when used is avoidable in which way? On wakeup I tend to attempt to block the claw overhead/crossup- but the better vegas are catching me with that suplex whether I jump back, forward, up, or try to teleport (except IAT, but its tricky on wakeup) I CAN slide out of harms way, but he usually tags me with a claw and scrapes my fragile epithelial tissue lol.
Fireball/IAT setups are too risky, as the second he see’s a fireball, he wall jumps and tags me.
I have varied luck with jumping back and keeping him at arms length (sorry) with s.mp whilst in the air- but he will eventually get wise and use his EX “flip-you-on-your-back-like-a-turtle-and-suplex-you”
I also have varied luck with my anti air options, but again, a well placed wall jump suplex, or EX will put me down for the count.
Throwing out limbs here and there whilst on the ground is also a risk, with Vega having good range on his focus attack.
I’ll apologise before hand if theres a massive “Vega vs Sim” thread already out there- I had a quick thumb through the forums and couldnt find anything, not specifically on these issues anyway.
The Spaniard with the claw and phantom of the opera mask is my only real nightmare opponent at the minute, so any help would be greatly appreciated! :tup:
