…because my friends say he is all the time. It really takes away from my enjoyment of using Hawk when they go on complaining about how cheap throws are and that it’s a 50/50 guessing game when I’m crossing them up whether I’ll attack or throw. They say that it’s too easy for him to get big damage.
My only excuse that I tell them is, “Hey, if T.Hawk is so overpowered then how come nobody has ever done well with him in a major tournament.”
So I guess I’m actually looking for advice from you guys about how they can be more competitive against T.Hawk. I tell them to keep him out with footsies but then they complain that his normals are too good. And like I said before, after they have been knocked down is it truly a 50/50 like they are saying? I guess it would be. If they block or try to attack after I cross them up I could SPD or Ultra I, if they try to jump after the cross-up to avoid a throw then I could smack them with a normal as they retreat or even Ultra II.
What can I tell them they should be doing? Are there any other options for them?
