Aight, here are the replays I saw on my PS4, just did a quick n’ dirty phonecam :lol: It’s mostly Karin vs Ryu, though the 2nd vid has a couple of Vega vs Ryu games on it.
I feel your problem isn’t the Ryu matchup per se, but more of how to defend and block better imo*. Like, there are many times where you could have escaped a throw but kept getting grabbed (admittedly this is a problem of mine as well), and many times it seemed you just stood there and took a sweep/low attack when you could have easily blocked or avoided it. Knowing when to go in and when to ease up is also important. There was once instance where you had a big life lead as Karin, but threw it away and lost because you weren’t defending very well and let the Ryu go in and make his comeback.
I feel you have the most basic Ryu approaches down (jumping/punishing obvious fireballs, not jumping when the Ryu shows he can shoryuken/antiair challenge), so I would say play more and work on those and take into account what the other posters in this thread said. I can go to the specifics of the above replays if you want, I just need another watch-through.
If nothing else, I think you have improved a bit from when you last posted. We got combos now. :plus_one:
*I say that because I watched some of your other replays too, and I feel you lost to some Chun-Lis who were just pushing buttons and you kept dying to wakeup EX Bird everytime :s
