So it’s been almost half a year since SSF4 was released and I was thinking about originally how I had posted that petition for them to change the counter ultra. I know some people’s opinions have changed but I was curious how everyone stands on it now that we’ve had some time with the ultra.
Do you find yourself using it much?
Does the ultra actually come through for you more often than not?
Do you feel another ultra would have still suited him better?
What would you change, or are you happy with how it is now?
I personally still don’t like it very much but I use it in a select few matchups. I still generally think the U1 does most of the work U2 can do except vs safe jumps and certain attacks but vs Akuma, Rufus, Gouken, and maybe a few others with dive kicks, I find I’m able to land it atleast with a little more regularity than other matchups. I still don’t like the fact it has an ultra flash, I think that hurts it in most matchups, and the recovery time is waaaay too long, but I suppose it has it’s place since we’re stuck with it.
I think I still would have preferred a command grab ultra though. (not the shitty ones you can jump out of like Guy’s, maybe more like Honda’s where you have to be stupid close but it’s still 1 frame atleast)
