So I’ve been using Jin as my main character since the game came out, but now that the new characters are out, and I always wanted to use Alisa, I see myself not using Jin much any more.
I was never really able to figure out how to defend myself well as Jin against many characters who had good pokes and liked to jump in on him all day. Since a lot of pokes in this game seem to have +3-+5 frame advantage on block, and Jin’s anti airs are bad against certain jump in angles, I felt it was very hard to get a lot of characters off him due to lack of better pokes, anti airs, and no reliable reversals except the alpha counter.
I’m used to playing characters with some of these setbacks, but one with all of them combined, in a game where pokes are so strong, I often felt in more trouble than after getting knocked down by Akuma in SF4 without a reversal/escape move.
I do enjoy how Jin plays offensively, but sadly that’s not enough.
Anyone else who has given up on Jin? Or people who feel the same way, but chose to stick with him anyway?
