Good zoning characters for AE

I main mostly Sagat, a zoning character, but sometimes I get bored playing as him and I want a new character to use alongside Sagat. I’ve tried rushdown characters but I don’t do as well as zoning playstyle.

Is there a character that can suit my strengths. Zoning, controlling space and footies?

Ryu

Thanks, I’ll try him out.

Should give Rose a shot

Guile, Chun Li, Akuma, Oni, Rose, Ryu, Dhalsim, Balrog, Yang, and Vega are all good at zoning. But you need to have offense in AE.

I could use Akuma, I used be able pull off some good mix-ups with him.

I’m biased, but I really like Chun Li’s zoning; it is a little more thoughtful than some of the other characters, because you really have to know all of her pokes, and you need to know the answer for each situation – she doesn’t have a wonder move that solves everything.

Dhalsim has the best footsies in the game, but he’s a special case.
