i don’t really have specific questions, but i’d really like to just spark random discussion that could HOPEFULLY lead to something useful.
where to start…
getting rushed down by ken: my big problem is “turning around momentum” or something. usually when i’m on offense, i can get damage with my eyes closed.
block low/watch for overheads/tech throws isn’t getting me very far. if i’m 70% sure that they will pause/throw or if i see a mk overhead, i’ll do wakeup karakusa and that usually ends a round if i’m lucky. it looks/feels kind of scrubby, but it works.
also, in a neutral position, do you play careful, waiting to counter a sweep/c.mk? ken people tend to turtle up on me, so i put myself in retarded situations that yell “PLEASE SHORYUKEN ME.” i don’t know…
fighting chun-ri: what kind of attitude do you have when fighting her? when i play against a chun-li that KNOWS the matchup, i feel completely shut down. if i play safe and try to mess around with footsies, i get raped. if i throw caution to the wind and run all up on her, i get raped. when i try to ACT like i’m rushing down, hoping that she’ll whiff some moves, she won’t do anything. i guess the bottom line is that i’m getting out-played.
on top of that, she has more options to counter post-hayate mixups. :sad: getting hit by c.jabXXsa2 hurts my soul. how do you switch your mixup choices up to compensate?
helluh-bored at work. sorry if this was a waste of your 2 minutes.
