First and foremost, I am brand new to SF; so if the stuff I ask seems dumb, sorry. I play MK and actually do very well online, but the execution is much more fluid and simple in MK, I’m having a LOT of trouble with SF. I haven’t ever won an online battle.
I’ve decided to main Akuma for now. He fits my play style because he’s almost like a combo of Ryu and Ken but with added slipperyness. That Teleport is a lifesaver against Zangeif/Abel!
Ok, so I’ve read in depth tutorials, I understand the mechanics of the game (combos, FADC, difference between a link and a chain, etc).
To give an idea of my execution skill level, I can execute all my normal/special moves 10x in a row, and FADC normally fine, but when I try to say… Shoryuken > FADC > Hyduken, I can’t get it to come out (I think I’m weak on the double dash into Hyduken, anyway).
A couple Akuma questions:
-If I fire a projectile, a lot of times they will jump over it and come down on me with a high HP/HK. I’ve tried to counter it but a lot of times my projectile animation hasn’t finished in time to respond. What should I do?
-Wait for Super or use EX Specials? I tend to use my EX Specials more often than my Super, not sure if I should be filling that bar or not.
-How to combo into Super/Ultra on Akuma? I typically just execute the inputs from a few steps away, I want to combo into it so they can’t block it.
-Links or advice on well buffered combos to practice on Akuma?
Thanks guys I know most of this has been asked before, so if you just link me the answer that works too.
