I have been playing street fight IV since it came out on console about a year ago, since then I have been trying to improve my game. Most recently that of my footsies in order to improve my offense. I have been reading the footsies guide posted on the front page and tried to apply it to my strategy, but nothing seems to work.
This mostly seems to be due to the fact that my opponent is content to hold down back for 99 seconds, while occasionally throwing a hadouken from range. I just can’t seem to open them up and generate any kind of momentum, if I attempt a throw they just option select and tech out, same goes for an overhead. Any pointers on how to beat this would be greatly appreciated. I play Chun and Akuma by the way.
