Just picked this game up the other day, though I have some fighter game experience from playing CvS2 for about a year.
I started out with C.Viper and after learning some of her tricks in training mode, went online for some matches.
I played a Ken player off the bat, and it seems things would go pretty normal and then when I got the knockdown and tried to press the advantage it seems like he had more options then me. For example I would try for a meaty jump in roundhouse to set up a block string but it got Srk’d, ok, fair enough. a bit later a did a back throw, dashed up to him and did a instant crossover flame kick, autocorrect Srk. Okay, that’s a bit annoying. A bit later I knock him down again, dash up, obviously I expect him to do a third Srk in a row so I block, he see’s I did nothing and throws me.
I end up having to try the win off of stupid stuff like lucky Ex Seismo’s
This continues to happen even when I play against other characters, it seems almost the whole cast has a get out of jail free card, though some have it a lot easier than others. (Shoto’s, Sagat, Zangief, E.Honda to name a few.)
Am I missing something here? Am I not supposed to be pressing advantage after a knockdown? Were the options I did not good ideas? Is there a way to get around reversals like SRK,Tiger Uppercut, Zangeif 360/Lariat, ect.?
