Is it me or does it seem like the latest several batches of Japanese CvS2 videos show runaway and turtling A groove players basically own everyone in CvS2? I mean I see all these random other teams, but 99.5% of the time runaway A grovoe teams have been owning people up. Japanese can say whatever BS they want about Sagat being better than Blanka… but I find Blanka better in almost all these videos. Blanka not only beats Sagat, but like with a pixel energy makes retarded fast come backs.
I mean don’t get me wrong about how other chars don’t seem to be able to compete. I mean I’ve seen Maki and Mai sneak a win here and there, but I generally see some form of A groove generally win about 90% of the time, and its like the same few chars.
I mean Japanese were noted to use a diversity of chars, but now it has come down to, A Sak, Bison, Blanka, Hibiki, and recently Bas’s E Honda.
Now maybe these videos give skewed results as far as who is winning, because they are hosted on a site of that particular A groove player, and he only puts himself up winning. Maybe the A groove players are just playing scrubs.
The only reason I am starting to more and more believe CvS2 in the end benefits turtling, runaway A groovers is because I seem to have the most trouble beating them. I can bait out CCs and etc etc. But you know what, it is fucking tedious walking from one corner to another constantly chasing a Bison who just does RC PC if he sees my char move. Or a safe RC LK Scissor Kick over and over and just builds meter while I am forced to just sit there. Or an E Honda player who is impossible to land a good combo on, and rely on random hits (like jump back RH) to win the match. Or how about a Blanka that just runsaway and does RC Electric to build meter. Or a Sakura who has meter 24/7 so therefore I cannot take too many risks because I might just lose a whole char. I don’t know.
Maybe someone can enlighten me as how to beat turtling A groovers. I mean as someone said in another thread… if Daigo can’t rush down turtling A groovers, then no one can.
So any advice would be helpful… cuz I am lost. Although please state reasonable advice that you yourself perform in real match play. None of this bullshit… “well if Sakura whiffs a RH free win for you, or just block Bison Psycho Crusher, and game over for him or just hit Blanka out of his dash EVERYTIME.” I see Bas and Daigo get hit by dash CC and RC Electric… sooo… don’t act like your ass is too good to get hit by it.
