I like how meterless DP is like 4 times in that list…
And cammy for example got most of this stuff too, so does Necalli. This has nothing to do with “shoto defending”
And yes, ryu’s got tools for every scenario… that’s the point of the character…
And if you constantly get AA by jabs, you’re misplacing your jumps.
Why are you even jumping in scenario where the opponent has the opportunity to punish it?
As I see it, if your opponent got a overpowered weapon, it’s best to give him no chance to use it. Likewise if you dont jump in like a fool AA jabs are of no concern.
Juri, as she was your example, probably has no reason to jump at all in that match up.
Her fireball travels past ryus, she can cancel fireballs with stocks, her mp stock release also cancels fireballs, as does her hk release and she’s got hazanshu to quickly get over them and punish. Oh and her charged vskill goes past fireballs too and switches sides.
See? On paper I can make juri look just as broken as you’re trying to with ryu.
You honestly want me to believe you’ve never won against a ryu?
In a match, your opponent wont ever play a perfect game. What you’re doing with your jumps is HOPE your opponent is asleep and you get annoyed when he isnt.
But to end with more than just empty paper talk. You want to jump? You know what juri can do with her fireball negating moveset? Force a pattern out of ryus. Play the fireball game, discover a pattern anf then punish the fireball with s GOOD jump in. There is no jab anti air if your opponent is stuck in recovery frames
And yet, I dont want to “defend” AA jabs, they ARE annoying to deal with at first but each tool got a counter, the counter to AA jabs is one valuable skill to have; the patience not to jump.
And instead of crying for 12 months straight we voiced our opinion and now can we please PLEASE carry on and learn how to deal with it?
