Yeah i know its very early (day 1 lol) but hear me out.
At first hes notmals look awesome with just amazing range but then you play people find out that.
- Slow Start up.
- Slow in general
- Ass Priority
- Hes “best pokes” get stuffed free. He can’t frame trap (like say Sim) even one bit.
Hes only good air to air attack is j.lp which is pathetic.If you use anything else most chars will just beat you air to air no problem every time.
Hes air to ground is pretty awful too, you really should’t be jumping at people at all.
The air to air thing would be fine if he fucking had any remotely useful ground anti air normals (like rog c.hp, rolento s.mp ect ect). He has none. Nothing even slight useful there.
Hes only AA is hes m. h. and EX dp which have some decen invincability but the angle is odd and its not nearley enough to to protect him from jump happy players.
On to the specials.
Hes HSS is ass. I main honda in AE… its not as nearly as good. You are a big minus on block, and even wen you hit it KDs so your oponent can just roll away. Basiclly you can’t do any pressuere on hit or on block. Oh and you can’t play footsies with jab HHS because hes walk speed is abysmal, the c.lp has all the problems I’ve listed before. You pretty much need to your oponent to walk in to the jab, not press any normals and stop blocking all at the same time… Just LOL.
Hes punch special has similar range and priority like hes normal S.HP, its slow and has no invincability.Its ass.
Hes “fire ball” its okish (but not really). You can do good damage if you hit it and tag but its so easy to jump over it and it has a lot of recovery. + people will be jumping on you way too much anyway becasue of hes the lack of anti airs and ari to airs.
Hes rush is good vs fireballs and in combos but having in mind all the problmes he has its not that big a deal at all.
The DP is the only quite good thing he has imo but again, too many other problems to care.
Can go on but don’t want to make this post too long.
P.S. He fly things is literary worst and less useful then the tount super jump that Dan does in Sf4…
