Anyone else been working up a nice hulk. I can’t wait for the psn release so I can hopefully show some of what I’ve been working on. Excited enough to post anyways… mean mr. green has been working wonders for me the last couple years… after I swore off god tiers.
Almost more excited to see what sort of monster characters people who never appear in videos online or american tournaments will be whipping out.
For me… its hulk on point.
Basicly I only play with 2 other guys (who both worked at an arcade with me a few years back… we are all adults… who have seen the best and know how to compare… they are both very good… not pro lvl… but good enough to steal a match here and there on one)… they love the god tiers/super common teams…
I’ve found… against mags/storm hulks super armor/ 2 frame crouching LK/a quick assist make for excellent rushdown defense if you don’t get caught doing something stupid. It wait… and punish. Mags is harder for hulk but not b/c of anything he does… its that he doesn’t give it away by getting crazy in the air like storm. Which bring me to my second point. Gamma quake… hulks oft overlooked hyper combo and my personal fav… This move is god’s gift to mr. green against a flying sent, storm, or a jumping/beaming cable. They really only have to be in the air in the 1/3 to 1/2 of the screen that hulk is in… and if they aren’t in that part… its simple to gamma chargeXXgamma quake. It can be an issue if they choose stay flat on the ground and proj/assist… but if they are doing that… then the pace is slowing… which favors hulk.
Really the idea is to exploit hulks superarmor and gamma charge at every available moment. Make it almost impossible to get in on you… granted you can still have an uphill battle actually putting your grubby green hands on some people… but thats usually b/c of hulks terrible air game. Really putting superamor and 2 frame crching lk together with great timing is what has to happen. mags might have a 1 frame attack… but properly exploiting the armor and timing the kick will land a big green foot in his mug. This works even better on storm… tho often you wont need it as much for her.
Again… gamma quake… rocks literally materialize out of this air above you… in a totally (as far as i know) random manner. If storm is above you mindlessly gaining super where she always feels safe… she will eat it hard. quake like i said… seems random… and sometimes it will hit for gamma crush type dmg. it works like a charm on mags as well… b/c when he tri jumps… and you pull quake… it wont matter what he does to you after… b/c onces yer green fist hits(always does)… those rocks… they’re coming… whether hes comboing you or not.
There are so many mind games that go into hulks slow recovery attacks b/c he can cancel just about anything into a lot of hypercombos. this goes especially for his crouching HP… the super armor… mega priority… and ability to bail it at any time into a 99% safe(don’t do it against cable) gamma quake that will both protect you while chipping and pushing them back. … point being that while it may look like hulk has terrible recovery… really he just has a half second window where he looks open and then eats your face for trying to get him… with a cancel to super and ultimately a hyper.
What’s not covered? Almost everything… but some of these simple principles that made hulk real run of the mill and an underachiever a few years back… have breathed some life into hulk now in an age of only 1/2 dozen or so commonly played characters. Low tiers are what surprise me at this point…hehe
hulk point… pys for AA (it really helps hulk weave an impressive def)… doom AA
hulk point… ironman beam… doom AA (ok… flat said… hulk crouching FP XX THC (gamme crush + photon canon… ouch) this is to easy to land…
I have gotten my buddy mike’s MSS so flustered with da greeny. I hope I can get the same effect online… i know i will against all the noobs and kids/wtver… but I’m hoping to earn some respect for mr. green. That being said… I know some matchups can go sour fast if hulk loses even 1 assist… so no need for a lecture about how he’s hosed w/out
I’ll keep sharing a few more specifics if people express interest and/or have insight to share…
(notice how i never said how badass gamma crush is? b/c (while it is) hulk has no need for it… …for me… its just a little bonus if I find the right situation for it)
Any other fans of the big green gonna be showing off some new stuff?
