For some reason, I always find myself struggling with settling on a couple characters to play. I seem to switch around with some regularity whenever I jump into Street Fighter. No other fighting game does this to me and I hate it!
Anyway, I’m trying to expand my horizons a bit and see if I can pick the brains of more seasoned players around here to find a character that would work with my playstyle. I have, what I’ve dubbed, a ‘Zone of Death’ playstyle. As in ‘This space around me? It’s mine. Enter at your own risk.’ I find I have the most fun when I’m holding ground, forcing the opponent out and keeping them out, withstanding savage rushdown or stopping it with a few well-timed normals, or devastating an opponent with a string of perfect reads.
So, I’d like to branch out and try some other characters that might fit this style very well. Sagat, sadly, I have left behind ever since they kinda crippled his fireball game. Currently I’m rockin’ Guile and Juri as my go-to duo online. Guile is obvious for being a king of zone control, and Juri because she’s a remarkably solid character all around. But what other options might I have? I’ve heard good things about Chun-Li in Ultra, and while I’ve always flirted with playing Akuma, I can’t deal with his low health and stamina.
Just curious to hear suggestions from others so I can take them into the training room and putt around with offered character for awhile to see how well they groove with my playstyle.
