So I’m on XBL (Deznere) for the time being and I’ve noticed a lot of Guy player a few in this forum tend to have some bad habits in the Guy mirror.
Recently played Shaynet(Slinkywinky) good games by the way.
Your pressure game is good and you know how to stop Guy’s runstop pressure. But you should be wary of pressing a button sometimes. I most likely won’t risk it but some Guy players will use EX tatsu to blow you up for pressing a button as well as other characters willing to just reversal. You have a bad habit in terms of using focus attack a lot, and normally charging to Lvl3. Don’t do that. Problem is if I have meter or in range for TC, its an easy blowup. Try to stay on the ground much more often, if I’m not KDed its easy for me to advance or anti air you especially since you can’t using elbow. You also let me jump in for free a lot of the time, Remember you can TK Izuna, and cr.mp tends to beat all of Guy’s jump ins with the proper timing.
Use tick throws and Option Selects, and other forms of baiting a crouch tech or for me to press a normal. You didn’t apply an OS once when you safe jumped which gave me a free backdash.
Don’t blatantly Run OH from half screen away. Granted this may be online but offline could stem a different story. Same with Runslide without meter, you could eat an ultra if the person reacts fast enough even if you do have Meter. And in the Guy mirror he can punish both options if you FADC forward (-3) or backwards (at least -11/12). Use Guy’s normal overhead instead. Its faster, safer, hits from a good distance. Try to use Guy’s other normals more often as well. You kept resorting to slide which would net me a free focus attack.
Work on your crossup game. Guy is a little hard to cross up in the mirror match due to his EX tatsu and weird wake up animation which can cause some cross up setups to actually whiff if you time it too perfect or in your case walk forward too much before pressing HK. Don’t sleep on fake crossups either they are good to use and at times can be hard to react to.
Also since you use U2 in the Guy mirror remember its a 1 frame Ultra so it will defeat safejumps whether I press a button or not, Just watch if a person delays their jump at all if they do, EX tatsu instead, you’re likely to get 3-4 hits.
Combo wise, if I’m standing midscreen and you still want to apply pressure go for Runslide, or Bushin Chain without the EX Hozanto combos. If you push me away you give me time to breathe and rest easily. Also try not to use Ninja sickle while I’m in the corner too often, If I have meter and see it coming I can EX Run and the end result won’t be pretty especially if I have Ultra. Try not go for uncrouchable bushin flips. I will look for that considerably and I will avoid the set up. You should avoid them as well as I did catch you a few times. (Mash a low)
Outside of this you’re good, personally I recommend using U1 instead of U2 as outside of mashing it during block strings and catching a safe jump or unsafe move, which anyone aware of the special will rarely do, you’re more than likely to land U1 than U2 in most cases. It’ll keep the opponent honest, but if they outplay you considerably on ground game U2 won’t do you much good. Just a thought however whatever is your personal preference is yours.
