Fair enough… also did a bit of research…
Guile flash kick seems to get beaten/trade with Ryu, Dan, Seth and Sakura’s j.HK…
Also at The Breaker, Seth’s j.HK is as wide as the moon, starts up in 6 frames, is active for 8 and can cross up.
What the actual fuck is that?..


#482

EX Flash Kick is his real reversal. Regular Flash Kicks trade often.


#483

yeah he played super turtley then, now his footsies are so good that he doesnt rely on turtling- more spacing and read-based now. And Javed - search Youtube and look up the entire SBO 2012 SSF4 AE team pools, Juso plays @ about 1 hour in.


#484

Important question that I think we should all know, does anyone know who has unblockables on Sakura? I’m looking at you Skatan and Deebs lol


#485

You guys know ur Sakura’s lol…


#486

I know I am late but my top 2 Sakura’s to watch are 1 Uryo and 2 don’t tell him I told you guys this but DBJ


#487

DBJ is a funny guy to watch because he always goes for at least 1 unnecessary long damaging combo xD
Also he posts in this forum and will probably see that ^

Wow really dude… you’re really going to disrespect me like that. :confused:

I do AT LEAST 3 unnecessarily long damaging combos. :confused:

And as far as Sakura’s I actually like watching, I pretty much enjoy watching Humanbomb (for a very specific reason). I’ve gained more respect for Uryo since watching him play Daigo in the recent Topanga Cup, so I’ll put him there too. I think everyone else is kinda meh with the exception of best sak Kazuasobi!!!


#492

I’m sorry sir, please forgive me :pray:
HumanBomb is also my favourite to watch but I swear he plays 100x better in money matches than he does in majors…
He beat Infiltration convincingly in 2 ft5’s but in majors he’s dropping combos, doing way more random ex tatsus and messing up setups…


#493

very solid Sakura’s I came across

URYO NOT USING SAKURA D:


#495

This Chuchu kid knows how to fight them shotos. This is the first time I’ve seen the Akuma unblockable used in a high level match. Maybe the first time Infiltration has seen it too? Also, I’ve never seen that dp OS to beat the raging demon out of the corner. I wonder if that’s part of a more complicated OS, or if he just read demon and chose dp.
And iirc, he did really well vs Breno at the 25th tourney too.


#496

That wasn’t an option select. Most likely, he’s option selecting jump back in case of a teleport. He just does mp shouken after the the demon animation.


#497

Two things to note here… Infiltration does badly against new players (e.g. K Brad) and I think he either lacks Sakura MU experience or just does bad against good Sakuras because both times him and HumanBomb have played sets HumanBomb won both.


#498

Yeah, its one of the few times I’ve seen him lose.

Infiltration also lost to Cnb.ChuChu’s Sakura at Brazil’s Revox recently.
