So I’ve been trying to get back into my former SF4 main, Blanka. I’ve been tearing up all the scrubs and beating some decent players. And I got mad hate mail. Most I didn’t care about, like:
“Fucking Turtle scrub”
“Turbo using scrub”
and so on. but this hurt me the worst:
“GG, but your Blanka is a little gimmicky. No offense”
:(. Wow that hurts. Let me tell you what I do in most matches:
Beginning of the match, I use either jab ball or fierce ball, mix it up so people won’t punish it as often. after the lp ball, i either grab, or surprise forward then grab.
When I know they can’t punish it, I spam ball. chip them, and hope they get hit.
When I score a knockdown, this is where the options come in
A) cross-up horizontal ball
B) lp ball
- surprise forward grab
- Surprise back (expecting a wake-up)
- surprise forward up-ball
C) walk-up grab.
D) EX Rainbow ball
I also like cr. lk cancel into rainbow ball, because I believe it is a good mix-up opputunity, kinda.
After a cr. lp xxx electricity hits, i like to do some ball mix-ups. If it gets blocked, I either do an unexpected ball, or surprise forward grab.
I can’t think of anything else I do usually. So you guys are the judges. Is my blanka gimmicky. If it is, is it necessarily a bad thing?
Thanks in advance!
