I use K-Hibiki and it seems that Hibiki might be too slow in reaction time against the CvS2 top tiers, especially after her qcf + any p.
Against Cammy it seems that if cammy has the ability to execute a lvl 3 super(raged or Lvl 3 bar) and hibiki does her b&b combo, she can get hit by cammy’s qcf x 2 + k, no matter what. Her qcf + p gives Cammy enough time to execute the super. It seems that if Hibiki tries to rush down against cammy she has to whore her c. jab, which often trades with many of Cammy’s normal moves. Any other move while trying to rush down seems to be too slow and causes Hibiki to be vulnerable for many frames.
against Blanka, I think she does better than against Cammy. her j. RH can hit a blanka ball and and a blanka ball super. And if Blanka throws out that c. fierce and hibiki blocks, her jab is fast enough to hit and you can link to qcf + jab. If Blanka does a blanka ball and you block, her qcf + jab & her hcb + jab are fast enough to hit blanka. If you parry or JD a blanka ball, it allows enough time to run or dash and execute her b&b combo. If you can execute a lvl 3, it gives you enough time to do her QCB, HCF+P super. Against Blanka, there have been times when all I have to do is B&B all day. In my opinion, Blanka is a sucker for cross-ups. I cross him up with J. RH which can also link to her B&B combo if executed correctly.
Sagat is the one that gives me the most problems. his small jump RH trades with her s. Fierce and causes so much damage, especially since plenty of Sagat’s are Ratio 2. If i can predict when they’ll be small jumping + RH. I can use her counter to either J. Fierce or if I’m raged either into her QCB, HCF+P super or if i counter throw them against the corner I try to use her F, HCF + P super, which causes more damage. If sagat is semi close and decides to throw a fire ball and I’m raged, I do her combo super. Good damage. Hibiki’s a sucker for Sagat’s C. Fierce. Her jabs get hit by it and if you were to miss a c. Fierce, it gives Sagat enough time to cause plenty of damage. She’s decent against Sagat, but can get hurt badly during her vulnerable frames after slashes and her c. fierce.
Also since the other Hibiki topic is mostly A-groove, they don’t elaborate on her lvl 3 supers. With her combo super, the most damaging combo i know of is this one: HCB, F + LK, LP, MP, HP, LP, MP, HP, LK, MK -> standing HK, QCB+HP, QCF+HP.
Anyone else got any tips on how to fight against the CvS2 top tiers???
