i am super frustrated with rufus. i am a bison player and i try my best to use s.hk to pre-emptively anti air him before he can dive kick, but often times i time it wrong and the dive kick game begins… i have the two below questions and even though i’m a bison player i’d like to know how you guys from your own characters defend against the rufus rushdown.
**1. ** is there a way to time the crouch tech while fighting rufus so they you don’t get frame trapped by the dive kicks but also tech his throws?
because right now, i’m just blocking and blocking and eating throws and if i try to crouch tech i eat dive kick combos and counterhits like no other.
**2. ** when is rufus vulnerable while he is rushing down? or when should i try to escape when he is rushing down?
i only know of 2 times he is vulnerable when he is rushing you down with dive kicks.
a. when he is doing his frame trap block string, s.lk, s.hpxxtornado, you can do a reversal before the tornado cancel. however with bison’s ex psycho i think it loses.
b. if he is spamming dive kicks kicks, you can do a quick aerial hitting move (bison’s s.lk) or do a mp+lp+lk option select if your character has a good one right before he starts another dive kick to reset him.
