At the moment I main Ken and Guile. With Ken my general strategies include pressure with f+mk and crouching mk, crossup game with jumping in (try to cross it up enough so that opponents throw out poorly timed AA to punish), and some other things that are intuitive, ergo hard to describe. My Guile is a lot more basic and not really worth mentioning.
My Ken is a pretty solid game, enough to win a decent amount against other people (non-randoms offline), and win a few matches or rounds in tournaments (though I am fairly new and have poor technique in a lot of areas). My problem, for whatever reason, is Blanka. Blanka makes me feel like I’m playing the game for the first time. His aerial ball is pretty easy to punish, and oddly enough his cross-up ball doesn’t screw me up too much either. But for whatever reason I’m terrible at punishing plain ol’ Blanka ball. I know you can punish with crouching medium punch, or crouching fierce kick, but I’m awful at timing it. I feel so stupid because it seems like the kind of shit you’d expect from scrubs online, but it seriously screws me over.
Advice? I’ve been to training mode for a long while and it didn’t help much, though it did make me realize I have to start the move a lot sooner than I thought I did. I’m going to go back and try everything tomorrow (the way gootecks describes in his guide), but I figured I’d ask to see about any helpful timing advice, or things that work well.
