Simple problem. I do not know how to play as Akuma or any shoto for that matter.
How do you even get in with him? Apart from jumping.
Now, with his pokes like the hit confirm, cr.lk cr.lp, or cr.lp, cr.lp when can you even use it? the range is terrible. even if that’s not a option then what do i use? for anything longer than that what can i do?? I don’t want to use standing roundhouse all the time. It’s like I can never get in on the ground, only land sweeps.
I mean, ive seen airs guide to ryu and tokidos guide but that’s not really helping me, simply, get in and do damage, I can do a few flashy combos but can never use them.
What im basically asking for, is using normals on the ground, how to get in, what to use at what range, and what to combo, what should be a B&B jump in, what should be a B&B ground combo, what should I do when there is a stuffed crossup and we end up right next to eachother but dont throw.
Is any of his specials safe on block? after a few pokes? im guessing only haduken.
