Gameplan with Ed?



Hi guys,

I am struggling when it comes to Ed’s offense. Sitting back and waiting to Anti air is great but what do you do when your going against defensive players. What are some good frame traps/pokes to use or general strategies to try and open an opponent up and start an offense. Also does Ed have many good mixup tools?

All help appreciated.


Use st. mp, its +3 on block. Use cr. mp to space out, then catch them with V-skill if they press a button. Use cr. mk xx flicker for chip damage. Use EX psycho spark, its +6 on block (also, its useful to delay the 2nd hit sometimes). Ed has mixups with v-trigger, but his his basic gameplan revolves around frame-trapping with st. mp and using throw in the right circumstances.
