I’ve been a Rufus player since SF4 so I’m very aware of Rufus’ shortcomings, especially in regards to playing against his bad matchups, and I’ve been considering picking up a pocket character to deal with those. I also feel like Rufus can actually win any matchup though, so just playing tighter would just cover his issues entirely, but at the same time bad matchups are bad for a reason, and having a character to help your competitive chances in a tourney doesn’t seem unreasonable. Does anyone have any experience having an alt that they feel goes well with Rufus’ natural flaws?
I’ve dabbled with Rose, but since she’s basically a joke character at this point its not really worth it, and not many people have solid matchups vs. the top tier (Rufus’ bad matchups), but BLG Juicebox says Juri is strong vs. them. Japan would disagree, but I’m looking for any input in this regard, except the obvious pick Yun to beat Yun. I’ve considered Yun and I think his upcoming nerfs and my experience with Rufus don’t justify picking him up.
