I straight suck with this guy. Yeah i can do some bnb combos and what not, but I just can’t seem to get in range to start throwing them out. Especially against guys with 3 frame dp and even blanka gives me so much problems. I feel like i lose half my life bar getting in so i can pull off a combo. But even after that or after a knockdown, I can’t really keep the pressure up due to fear of electricity or dp on wakeup. if i block and they don’t do a wake up reversal, it just feels as if the footsie game is weak. even if they block my initial string of cr lpx2, st rh x ducking, they always seem to throw out low jabs on reaction to the ducking. I can never get into the range. I’m watching videos of marn, kimokoan, other guys in the video thread, and they are doing exactly what i want to do - f+mk or f+hk meaty and then into cr lk/lp combo string with ducking reset if its blocked. but damn, people at a “lower” skill level aren’t so careful. they are much more willing to throw out that cr jab and it really is throwing me off. Shotos i can kind of just beat out with just damage and smarter play but i dont seem to get the win because of pressure combos.
And the blanka i play is getting really smart, never throws out blanka ball, always has electricity out, and i can never seem to get into a range to punish the electricity. when i get into sweep range he just hops back etc. idk. frustrated that when i play any other character i have either a good crossup or zoning tactic to help me but with dudley i just don’t know what the move is that i’m supposed to be using to kick ass. please help. lol.
