I went 3-2, wanted to get out of pools but was not able to this year Beat vega 2-0 first round, then a Bison 2-0 in the second. Third round I lost to a turtle Blanka… even though blanka gets dominated by boxer I personally have a hard time with him. Plus the Blanka player i play against most in my area(Phx, AZ) is Scumbag (from the evo moment 2 years ago LOL) who plays erratic and refuses to turtle. Beat a Guy player 2-1 in the next round then lost to Fubarduck’s Ibuki to get eliminated. I couldnt react and got hit with her OH run kicks into super twice and my meaty throw attempt got punished by wakeup ultra once. Those three occurences all lost me critical rounds in the set.
In regards to the Bison match, I would say that those four things that delusional listed are good, particularly 1 and 2. cr.MK to cr.HK frame trap works wonders for me. Against Bison, the match seems to devolve into a guess of when are you going to push a button or do a scissor then throwing out an EX HB for me quite often. To avoid that i try to be patient and wait for him to do something after a blocked scissor then whiff punish with st. RH. Just remember Bison has terrible damage and if you hit him with one st.RH or FP you can counteract several blocked scissors worth of chip damage. Your normals can combat his w/ range and speed, but they out damage by far.
A very good piece of tech that i use against bison is this: after comboing into HB, Ultra, once hes cornered follow up w/ an immediate lvl1 TAP to corner yourself then whiff a heavy HB to get out. If you do this he loses charge and can’t EX PC out of the corner, leaving him with only one option to escape jab throw pressure/mixups in doing an EX devils reverse. EX DR loses to jumping MP which also keeps him cornered so if you show that he will think twice before doing it again. If he headstomps you block and hes still cornered. Also, the obvious autocorrect U1 to punish wake up psycho is important too.
Enigmatic, do you really think that ibuki is bad for Rog? What makes you think that just curious? I find that Rog vs Ibuki is one of her worst matchups on paper.
