So Rose is my main, but I keep Guile as a back-up.
Earlier today I was playing as Guile against a Balrog in player matches on PSN. The match was at 2-1 my lead (out of 3). I was getting cornered by Balrog, and he fishes for headbutt into ultra, but I blocked it, and responded with Super. This was near the end of the round, and I saw we were tied with life after the super ended, so I decided to go for the ultra, and it actually landed. (Note this never happens for me)
Yet Balrog was still alive with not even a pixel of health. Kind of panicked, I walked up to him and down+backed (because I was ready to chip him out). However he did wake-up ultra at me, and I knew I wasn’t safe, but I didn’t want to risk trying to beat it out with flash kick, so I kept down+backing. Seeing now that he actually could chip me out, I waited for the moment where Balrog briefly pauses before his final blow. My flash kick trades and we double K.O.
I was L’ing my a o. I couldn’t believe I won. I feel like I deserved it though since I landed super into ultra. I really didn’t want to go into a final round.
I understand there are things I could have done instead that would’ve been safer, but I did what I did, and got the W.
Anybody else have a clutch story to share? Hope you enjoyed mine.
